  1. Full Spectrum Complete IOP Instrument Suite

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: 821

    In the Phase I effort, we developed conceptual designs and methods for novel oceanographic optical instruments that measure a complete set of water inherent optical properties across the full visible spectrum at high spectral resolution. One instrument is a new type of in-situ absorption meter that maintains high accuracy over a wide range of water optical properties, from the clearest waters to ...

  2. A Universal Commuter Railcar Boarding Device for Use by Both Disabled and Able-bodied Individuals Configurable for all U.S. Railstation Platforms

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    SAFE proposes to design and develop a boarding device for heavy rail passenger cars. The boarding system will enable the loading of all passengers regardless of mobility from a wide range of platform configurations. Once installed on a passenger railcar, that car can be used with any of four platform configurations: high level platforms close to the car, high level platforms with partial setbac ...

  3. An Innovative Supplemental Automotive Seating System for Short-Stature Individuals

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    Individuals who are of short stature face impediments when driving automobiles due to their inability to effectively operate vehicle controls, to clearly see the external roadway environment, and to properly use the vehicle restraint system. These impediments could be largely removed if a device could be developed to elevate the driver to a sitting position similar to that afforded to average hei ...

  4. Soybean Oil Based High Performance Nanocomposites

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Epoxidized soybean oil has not been evaluated as a composite matrix to create high performance composites A. Natural fibers and nanoclay particulates will be evaluated as matrix additives to the epoxidized soybean oil. B. The purpose of this study is to evaluate an extrusion based freeforming process to align the fibers and obtain improved mechanical properties.

  5. Developing Software for Search and Rescue Planning and Operation

    SBC: Hummingbird Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The initial actions of public officials at the onset of an incident can make the difference between life and death. In these complicated incidents, with limited resources, software can aid personnel in a search and rescue incident, where time is critical. Upon the initiation of a search and rescue incident, teams may have as little as 12 hours to rescue a person. With the advent of hand held perso ...

  6. A New Passive Technique to Monitor, and Discover, Agricultural Groundwater Resources

    SBC: Industrial Imaging Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    World-wide agricultural water resources are strained by drought, over pumping, contamination, and competition for use. We are proposing an inexpensive method to explore for new water resources and continuously monitor the level, and perhaps contamination, of existing heavily used aquifers. What we are proposing is an electromagnetic method of geophysical exploration that can be used to map the ele ...

  7. The Use of Sulfur for the Control of Varroa

    SBC: Pima Research Company            Topic: N/A

    Many commercial crop growers depend on managed bees for pollination to achieve high yield and top quality produce. There are more than 90 bee-pollinated crops in the U.S. alone, and by improving crop quality and yield, it is estimated that bees add $14.6 billion to crop value. Currently, there is a crisis that is challenging the success and sustainability of communities and economies that depend o ...

  8. Developing an Artificial Diet for the Honey Bee, Apis mellifera

    SBC: S.A.F.E R&D            Topic: N/A

    At certain times of the year when natural pollen is not available, beekeepers need a simple and effective suppliment to feed their colonies to prepare them for pollination services or honey production. The purpose of this project is to advance honey bee nutrition and provide beekeepers a tool to improve honey bee vigor.

  9. Project PREPARE: Preparing preschoolers and kindergartners who are deaf to learn to read by teaching them early critical service words typically visually and linguistically inaccessible to them through a computer-based instruction product

    SBC: HOPE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Children with significant hearing loss continually exhibit low reading levels, due in part to the difficulty they face upon entering school of understanding basal reading vocabulary, especially early critical “service words.” Service words are those words that cannot be learned through the use of pictures or objects (e.g., apple) but that constitute up to 75% of all words used in basal readers ...

  10. Development of a Lightweight Adjustable, Modular Pediatric Wheelchair

    SBC: THREE RIVERS HOLDINGS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, the project designed and constructed a prototype tilt-in-space wheelchair called the PALM (pediatric, adjustable, lighweight, and modular) that is specifically designed to meet pediatric needs. The goals of the Phase II project include: (1) to further refine the design of the PALM, (2) verifty functionality of the prototype through end-user testing and evalution on an Activities of D ...
