  1. Methodology for Identification on High Value Biomass Feedstocks

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Up until the early twentieth century, several commodity chemicals were produced by the pyrolysis of hardwoods (e.g., methanol, acetic acid, acetone) or the extraction of softwoods (turpentine, terpenes, rosins, pitches, and tars). The expected long term increase in petroleum and natural gas prices will cause a gradual but steady return to biomass feedstocks over the next several decades. Other dri ...

  4. Partial Saturation Ebb and Flow Watering System for a Flooded Floor Greenhouse

    SBC: Green Growth Properties dba Geremia Greenhouse            Topic: N/A

    Sub irrigation combats the waste of water and fertilizer in traditional overhead watering systems used in greenhouses for production of potted ornamental plants. However, current ebb and flow watering systems achieve nearly complete saturation of the root medium for each watering cycle. There is no ability to restrict the water provided to the plants. This may decrease plant quality and facilitate ...

  5. Field-Portable Pesticide Residue Analyzer

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Modern agriculture depends on pesticides to curb infestations and increase crop yield and to produce the quantity and quality of food demanded by today's society. However, many pesticides kill insects by attack of the central nervous system, and use of excessive concentrations pose a threat to human health. The EPA Office of Pesticide Programs is charged with setting tolerance levels (generally fr ...

  6. Development of a Simple, Quantitative Kit to Test Vegetables and Fruits for Evidence of Fecal Contamination

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC METHODS INC            Topic: N/A

    One of the most vulnerable sectors in the food industry includes "ready-to-eat" fruits and vegetables that may be consumed without peeling, pasteurization, or cooking. Increases in the year-round consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables that are out of season in the United States, coupled with the relaxation of international trade restrictions, have resulted in significant increases in the impor ...

  7. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...

  10. Rotary-Wing UAV as On-Demand Sensor Platform for Aircraft Operators

    SBC: LITE MACHINES CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    During warfare, strikes made with surgical precision by Special Operations Forces reduce collateral damage and loss of life among non-combatants and have become the expectation of our war-fighters. Such strikes, however, require the ability to survey the target area in a timely fashion and guide munitions accurately. High altitude photographs taken by satellites and orbiting aircraft often lack ...
