  1. SeaTag: Design and Manufacture of a Family of Modular Archival Tags

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Small archival tags are a potentially powerful resource management tool. Yet, limited selection and high cost diminishes the technology¿s suitability for widespread studies. This proposal introduces a modular architecture for archival tag. SeaTag provides a rich and expandable sensing and data transmission/retrieval capability, while using the economies of scale of a modular product line to su ...

  2. GeoTag: A New Archival Tag for the Improved Tracking of Marine Organisms

    SBC: System Science Applications            Topic: 813

    Systems Science Applications proposes to design an archival tag that includes three new sensors: a magnetometer, accelerometer, and dual channel radiometer. The magnetometer will be corrected for pitch, roll, and transient accelerations by data from the accelerometer. The resulting vertical and horizontal magnetic intensity measurements will be combined with NOAA world magnetic maps to provide i ...

  3. Breaking the Information Bottlenecks in Retail Plant Sales

    SBC: Aerulean Plant Identification Systems, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Development of an advanced, innovative system in support of timely assessments of emerging market opportunities for U.S. commodity crops is proposed. GDA will prototype a set of automated, decision support algorithms for near-real time, analytical assessment of large volumes of satellite derived time-series data on crop conditions. For development, the project will collaborate with the Production ...

  4. Use of Cow Manure in Cement Kilns

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In recent decades the farming industry has seen a gradual transformation from smaller farms to larger concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). This trend has led to large concentration of animals in select regions. For example, the California Chino Basin has one of the highest concentrations of dairy cows in the world, producing 600,000 tons of dry manure annually. Traditional utilization o ...

  5. Biofuels Production from Hemicellulose

    SBC: Farasis Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The global issues of increasing petroleum prices, and the impact of fossil fuel consumption on climate-change, have renewed national priorities to develop replacements for petroleum-based fuels that are non-polluting and renewable. Microbe-based processes for the production of fuels from biomass represent sustainable technological options. In order to successfully transition the U.S. to a predomin ...

  6. Organic control of the key pest of grapes in small eastern US vineyards: mating disruption simplified through mechanization

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The majority of grape growers in the eastern US grow grapes on farms of less than 100 acres for the production of grape juice, with most farms yielding less than $200,000 in farm income. Most of this acreage is grown under contract with National Grape Cooperative for processing into Welchs grape juice and related products. In recent years, grape producers in the Eastern US have lost a number of e ...

  7. SPLAT PBW: Long Lasting Sprayable Pheromone Formulation to Eradicate Pectinophora Gossypiella

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This USDA SBIR Phase I research and development project will result in an effective, long-lasting, sprayable formulation to eradicate Pectinophora gossypiella, the cotton pink bollworm (PBW) from the United States. Yield losses range from $85-$170 per acre, with annual losses about $21 million due to prevention, control costs and lower yields due to plant damage, which just in Southern California ...

  8. A Novel, Low-Energy Stripper-Membrane Hybrid Process for Bioethanol Production


    "Demand for ethanol as a gasoline supplement is surging. Just over 100 U.S.corn-toethanol plants are currently operating, with almost 40 new plants slated for completion in the coming year. By 2012, 250 bioethanol plants are expected to be installed. The current fermentation-distillation-molecular sieve process for ethanol production uses up to 20% of the energy content of the ethanol separated. T ...

  9. Agricultural Flow Meter for Small Turnouts and Ditches

    SBC: SONTEK/YSI INC            Topic: N/A

    As the economic value of water is increasing, so is the demand for increasingly accurate and cost-efficient means to monitor its distribution. This is particularly true in the worldwide agricultural industry where local and federal regulations necessitate valid flow measurements. Present methodologies for flow measurement of surface water in these environments are: Too expensive and labor intens ...

  10. Compact, low-maintenance MRI system for animal lung imaging

    SBC: ABQMR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop compact magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems for imaging lungs as well as other soft tissue in live laboratory animals based on permanent magnets that are reasonably priced and easy to maintain. Such imagers will benefit public health by improving laboratory animal research. Unlike other soft tissues, lungs are difficult to image with ...
