  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. 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 ...

  8. A Parasite Food to Control Southern Pine Beetle

    SBC: Entopath, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to develop a feeding system for Southern Pine Beetle (SPB) hymenopterous parasites. This food, formulated to be applied in SPB infested southern pine forests, should increase the fecundity of adult SPB parasites thereby enhancing their ameliorating effects on the SPB population outbreaks. Natural enemies, including hymenopterous pa ...

  10. Ultrasonic Wetwood And Defect Detection

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

    This Phase I project is aimed at the development of a new ultrasonic non-destructive evaluation (NDE)system capable of detecting both bacterially infected green oak lumber ("wetwood") prior to kilndrying, and internal defects (checking, honeycomb) in dried hardwood. Both wetwood and honeycombare severe problems in the domestic hardwood industry, resulting in up to 10% production loss. Wehave app ...
