  1. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  3. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  5. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...

  6. Development of a Shipboard Ultrasonic Ballast Water Organism Control

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops and demonstrates an innovative and economic technology that uses ultrasonic energy to destroy organisms in a ship ballast system, thereby minimizing impact from alien species introduced from shipping. Phase 1 results successfully showed that organisms were rapidly destroyed by ultrasound at various frequencies and power densities. Although the mechanism of destruction in an u ...

  7. Omni-Directional Cloud Height Indicator

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will develop the specifications and design of a ceilometer capable of scanning in three dimensions to detect clouds within a range of 75,000 feet (about 15 miles). The final design will be based upon the Vaisala CT-75k ceilometer which has a nominal range of 75,000 feet. As a proof-of- concept, the proposed research effort will use the Vaisala CT-25k (which has a nominal rang ...

  9. EVALUATING THE NUCLEUS ESTATE MODEL FOR HATCHERY-BASED PEARL FARMS ON REMOTE ATOLLS

    SBC: Black Pearls Inc            Topic: N/A

    The U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands are extremely isolated rural communities, with limited opportunities, and attendant socio-economic ailments. The best opportunity for sustainable economic development is lucrative black pearl farming. This offers great potential, but wild oysters are scarce, and prospective local farmers lack necessary support. Our first commercial farm in Majuro has attracted ...

  10. Effects Of Naked Dna And Subunit Ipnv

    SBC: DiagXotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV) causes an economically significant, untreatabledisease in salmonid fish. Immunization appears to be the most promising control method, butcommercial vaccines are not readily available. We have previously developed and tested arecombinant IPNV vaccine in rainbow trout and brook trout fry. Although the vaccinesignificantly reduced fish mortality, it di ...
