  1. Flow Control and Operation Monitoring System for Individual Spray Nozzles

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Agricultural spray equipment operators typically cannot monitor all nozzles along the boom. Clogged or malfunctioning nozzles produce undesirable spraying results. This project is designed to lead directly to a useful product, namely, a single-nozzle monitoring unit for agricultural spray applications. The monitoring capabilities of the system will allow more efficient, reli ...

  3. Novel Affordable Composites from Renewable Resources

    SBC: Cara Plastics            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Composites today are based on petroleum-based polymers and energy intensive fiber glass. Our dependency on petroleum results in carbon dioxide emissions, which can be harmful to the environment. The purpose of this project is to prepare and test specific resins from natural oils for their compatibility with natural fibers, and the properties necessary for structural applicat ...

  4. Use of Site-Specific Recombination for Hybrid Rice Production

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Based on previous work we anticipate that this project will provide a proof of principle for hybrid rice production as an attractive alternative to the use of CMS in rice. We expect that this technology will become standard to the rice industry and integrated into worldwide breeding programs. We also anticipate that this technology will be used in a wide array of other cerea ...

  5. A Soil Sampling System for On-the-Go Analysis and Mapping of pH and Other Properties

    SBC: Kejr, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: As crop growers begin to use GPS technology to manage the variability in their fields, they are seeking ways to assess the variability of physical and chemical properties more accurately and cost-effectively. In the most common approach, soil samples are acquired on a 2.5 acre grid pattern. Soil properties often have greater spatial variability than is identified with this a ...

  8. Enhancing Elderly Balance & Gait Using Mechanical Noise

    SBC: AFFERENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): EIderly falls constitute one of the most costly health problems in the U.S., both in terms of expense to the healthcare system and in individual suffering. Fully one-third of people over age 65 fall each year, many incurring significant injuries that strongly impact their long-term health prospects and productivity. Although many factors contribute to the prop ...

  10. Personalizing Speech Output for Communication Devices

    SBC: AGORA NET INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): ModelTalker is a text-to-speech synthesis (TTS) system intended to be of particular interest to potential Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) device users. Most present AAC devices use TTS software that derives from rule-based formant synthesis algorithms developed in the 1970s, but modern concatenative synthesis systems (of which ModelTalker is an ...
