  1. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    It is desirable to make focal plane arrays (or imaging arrays) with reduced pitch; doing so enables smaller, cheaper and lighter camera systems that provide the same image resolution. Currently, the lower limit on pitch is set by electron/hole diffusion and light diffraction that results in crosstalk between neighboring pixels. Since electron hole pairs generated outside the depletion layer can ...

  2. Field Device for Determining Atomization Properties of Agrochemical Tank Mixes


    Spray drift from pesticide applications is a significant issue for U.S. agriculture. Spray drift, and efficacy of agrochemicals, are strongly affected by the droplet size spectra and the physical properties of the spray. Applicators have general guidance on nozzle selection but most reference tables are for water or water+surfactant mixture. Pesticide labels often specify the droplet size with whi ...

  3. Technology for Controlling Net Weight of Fish Fillets

    SBC: Dantec Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The natural occurring variation in fish fillet weight result in overweighs Give Away in the product packages. Buyers prefer uniform serving sizes, which currently are difficult to achieve. The injected solids will be the under utilized trimmings from the fillet operation. The goal of the effort is to develop a technology that can increase the under-weight fillet weight by at least 10 nd result in ...

  4. Synthetic Influenza Detection with Real-Time Results and Extended Shelf-Life

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Influenza infection and pandemics occur rapidly in the millions of domestic animals that live in high density on farms. Monitoring each animal for disease is impractical and prohibitively expensive. However, culling and slaughtering entire flocks or herds once influenza is discovered stands as a tragic and costly consequence of current practices. Recent disturbing reports of bird-to-human influenz ...

  5. SPLAT GM: A Dual Action Organic Formulation to Control Gypsy Moth

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

    Gypsy moth, accidentally introduced in Massachusetts in 1868, is one of North America's most devastating forest pests. Pheromone mating disruption is a safe, organic approach to GM's control; however current formulations are not effective in controlling high density populations. In this Phase I ISCA Technologies, INC. will use SPLAT technology, a flowable and sprayable formulation, to control GM i ...

  6. Solar Powered Electrochemical Carbon Dioxide Generator-Based Mosquito Surveillance System

    SBC: Med-e-cell            Topic: N/A

    Mosquitoes and biting flies are significant problems further aggravated by the insect's ability to transfer diseases like West Nile encephalitis, malaria, dengue fever and yellow fever. Disease treatments are few and one way to reduce its spread is through reduction of mosquito populations. Surveillance is an important part of mosquito management programs. The release of carbon dioxide, a mosquito ...

  7. Separation of Zein in a Dry-grind Ethanol Plant


    In the next few years, production of fuel-grade ethanol is expected to increase dramatically. The new ethanol production capacity will increase the supply-and decrease the price-of co-product streams. Zein is a potentially important co-product that could become interesting as a polymer raw material if it can be economically recovered. The purpose of this project--and the key breakthrough needed to ...

  8. Multi-gas Sensors for Monitoring Air Emissions from Livestock Operations

    SBC: PICARRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The rapid proliferation of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations has raised concerns about both health and environmental impacts of aerial emissions from animal production and waste management systems. The purpose of this project is to develop an ultra-sensitive instrument, based on cavity ringdown spectroscopy, that will enable researchers to continuously monitor hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, nitro ...

  9. An Inexpensive MEMS-Based Pesticide Detector for Long-Term Monitoring

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Pesticides are a continuing source and significant contributor to decreases in air quality. Most pesticides create risk to humans, animals, or the environment by causing health problems, such as birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and effects that might manifest themselves in the future. Accurate tracking of residual pesticides can aid in eliminating these effects. Today, accurate monitoring requ ...

  10. An Analysis System for Operations and Environmental Impact of Offshore Tuna Farms

    SBC: System Science Applications            Topic: N/A

    Assessing the environment impact of aquaculture operations, such as nutrient loading. Optimizing placement and stocking of aquaculture installations. This project aims to further develop, validate, and implement with a GIS framework quantitative models for assessing the environmental impact and operational optimization of aquaculture operations.
