  1. Advances in Ammonia Detection Systems

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 811

    This Phase II SBIR Research project will continue the development and testing of an innovative instrument for measuring fluxes of atmospheric ammonia to be delivered at the end of Phase II. The instrument will combine advances in diode laser technology with sophisticated laser modulation methods to quantify ammonia in a low pressure flow cell. The instrument¿s small size and light weight will ...

  2. Miniature Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometer for Measuring Tropospheric Ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes to develop an automated, fast, and compact instrument to measure tropospheric ammonia from light aircraft. Ammonia plays important roles in aerosol particle chemistry, and particle characteristics are critical in understanding climate change and air quality. Existing ammonia instruments are either too large or measure too slowly for use on light aircraft. The unique ...

  3. Materials Characterization & Manufacturing Development of an Irrigation Ditch Liner System

    SBC: FastDitch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The productive use of surface water for agriculture has become a critical national and international priority as competition for water resources increasingly outpaces supply. This is demonstrated by the World Bank's investment of $3 billion a year in water projects. Small earth-lined irrigation ditches are used to deliver water from larger canals or streams directly to field ...

  4. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  6. Helicopter Borne Acoustic Larvicide Mosquito Control for Flooded Agricultural Croplands

    SBC: New Mountain Innovations            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Control of mosquitoes from flooded croplands such as rice-lands is essential for the well being of rural Americans. Control of these mosquitoes has been a challenge for many reasons including; the high cost of pesticides, restrictions on many pesticides to be sprayed over water, their environmental impacts, and reduced effectiveness due to increased immunity of mosquitoes an ...

  7. Innovative Wood and Ceramicrete Composite Building Material

    SBC: Santa Clara Woodworks            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Forest management agencies and environmental groups have recognized the need to reduce fuel load and increase use of small diameter timber thinnings in order to improve the health of the forest and prevent forest fires. It is difficult to cultivate demand for residues as they are neither of high value for building material nor available in large enough quantities for traditi ...

  8. Remarkable Reading Machine: Your Child

    SBC: Media Group of CT.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop a video/electronic media training program to strengthen preschool children's beginning reading skills. Many children in the United States, particularly children from low-income families, begin kindergarten unprepared to develop beginning reading skills. They lack the kind of experiences that research indicates are crucial to being ready to learn how to rea ...

  10. Computer-Based Training in TSF for Clinicians: Phase I

    SBC: CBT4CBT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Bridging the gap between science and practice has been identified as an area of major emphasis for NIDA and NIAAA. Manualized individual Twelve-Step Facilitation has been demonstrated to be effective in well-controlled, randomized clinical trials, but still not widely practiced outside of clinical research settings. Recent evidence suggests that comprehensive face-to-face training, geared to the n ...
