  1. The X-3D Array: An Affordable Three Dimensional, High Speed, Towed Hydrophone Array

    SBC: BIOWAVES, INC.            Topic: 82

    We proposed to test, design, and modify an existing ‘X-Array’ tetrahedral (3-D) hydrophone array prototype and design with the ultimate goal of developing a production prototype called the ‘X-3D Array’. We will analyze field data collected previously from the first prototype, conduct hydrodynamic modeling of the array design, and research possible torque imbalances in the tow-cable, and us ...

  2. From Vehicle Performance to Transportation System Performance- System Impacts of Automated Vehicles

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 151FH4

    The rapid development of automated vehicles has attracted a lot of attentions from the public in recent years. Current studies on automated vehicles mainly focus on microscopic simulations with simple network topologies and driver behaviors, and few has considered to incorporate automated vehicles into macroscopic travel demand models for the analysis in a regional network. In this project, we pro ...

  3. Locomotive Flashing Light for Trespassers and Pedestrians Warning


    The Department of Transportation (DOT) is seeking a reliable and distinctive locomotive-based flashing light warning system capable of effectively warning trespassers ahead of the train without offending regular individuals/residences in neighboring areas. To address this DOT need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop the Locomotive Flashing Light Alerting (FLA) system, which will ...

  6. A software solution to control bus-bunching using networked, commoditized tablets

    SBC: Via Analytics            Topic: 151FT1

    Bus bunching, the tendency of buses to cluster together, delays passengers, wastes transit agency resources, and makes drivers’ jobs more difficult. To solve this problem, we propose a control system consisting of networked tablets designed to automatically provide drivers with simple guidance based on the positions of other vehicles in the system. This proposal provides a plan to expand the exi ...

  7. Novel Pathway For The Synthesis Of 1-Hexanol From Biomass-Derived Sugars

    SBC: ZYMOCHEM INC            Topic: 88

    1-hexanol is a widely used intermediate chemical with applications in the perfume, food, chemicals ?and polymer industry. It can be dehydrated to make 1-hexene which is widely used a co-monomer for polyethylene applications. Current industrial production of 1-hexanol uses petroleum based feedstocks and involves several steps that are carried out at high temperatures and high pressures, making the ...

  8. Biobased Semiochemical Production From a New American Industrial Oil Crop

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 88

    Semiochemicals, especially pheromones, are of critical importance to integrated pest and vector management. Some pheromones, however, are too expensive, costing over $50,000/kg. This makes them far too costly for many control agencies to use in aggressive management regimes, as the required quantities for effective formulations are high. The development of a synthetic process to convert low cost b ...

  9. Semiochemical Management of the Cranberry Fruitworm and Blackheaded Fireworm for the Small Cranberry Grower

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Cranberries are a native North American fruit; domesticated in Massachusetts in the early 1800's and are currently vital to numerous small and mid-size U.S. farmers. Cranberry production is a particularly important component of the economy in many states, including Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington. Moreover, cranberries are the top fruit crop in Wisconsin, grossing ...

  10. Cost-Effective Mycotoxin Detection for Dairy Cattle Feed

    SBC: Epicentre Technologies Corporation            Topic: 83

    A small number of mycotoxins released by mold infestation in dairy cattle feed lots are responsible for most cases of acute diarrhea in cattle. It is common for feed to be contaminated with more than one species of mycotoxin, so it is important to have a screening tool that is rapid, reliable, cost-effective, and sensitive to different toxins.The proposed cattle feed mycotoxin detection system wil ...
