  2. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize ...

  4. Wireless Magnetic Workzone System

    SBC: VehicleSense Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase II we will develop a work zone collision system consisting of "smart barrels" and a central communications computer. The "smart barrels" will incorporate magnetic sensors, an LED display and wireless communications resulting in a unit that can accurately measure the speed of passing vehicles and relay this information to adjacent barrels and the central communications computer. The ...

  5. Decontamination of Flower Bulbs using Atmospheric Plasma

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    "The United States floriculture industry reached a total of $5.6 billion in domestic consumption in 2002 with an additional $111 million in exports. As the industry continues to move towards mechanized harvesting in order to increase production, the potential for bulb injury and resulting fungal infection has increased, as well. Current chemical methods to reduce fungal infection are often costly, ...

  6. An Integrated Membrane-based Process Train for Reducing Costs of Ethanol Production

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of ethanol derived from starch crops and biomass is forecast to grow considerably in the next decade. There exist opportunities for significant reductions in ethanol production costs and associated energy usage via employment of innovative process operations. Many of these processes involve membranes, which provide cost savings due primarily to reduced energy consumption. Recently, new ...

  7. Fouling-Resistant Inorganic MF Membrane for Improved Food and Beverage Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened, especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites. Varroa destructor, in particular, is lethal to many colonies, decimating both feral and managed honey ...

  8. Development of acoustic cavitation based affordable milk processing technology for small rural dairy farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Milk supply by the small dairy farms to the local markets not only reduces transportation costs but also provides cultural and economic benefits to the communities. However, the majority of the milk processing operations are carried out in large plants at the wholesale level. Such capacities and the large capital requirement act as a barrier to entry for small farmers and prohibit them to get a b ...

  9. A Business Model for Productive Successful Aging in Place in Rural Maine

    SBC: Lilliana Jodoin-Reitman, DBA Global Wellness            Topic: N/A

    By 2020, fully one quarter of Americans will be over 60. Some 77 million Baby Boomers ages 42 to 60 are just beginning to face this critical juncture in their lives. In Maine, the oldest state in the nation, some people, due to lack of planning, may leave their homes and enter assisted living facilities or nursing homes at a huge economic and social cost to themselves, their heirs and public resou ...

  10. Cost Effective Microalgae Production for Aquaculture

    SBC: MOOK SEA FARMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The high cost of producing microalgae as food for bivalves constrains the size to which large quantities of bivalve seed can be grown in controlled hatchery conditions prior to transfer into a nursery. Larger hatchery seed translates to larger juveniles planted in the fall, and dramatically improves yields at harvest. Based on preliminary bench-top studies conducted by Mook Sea Farm, the SBIR Phas ...
