GFDI (Grassland Fire Danger Index) – model that gauges the potential seasonal fire danger in different pasture types – See Fire danger (Fact Sheet)
GI and RS Analyzer – bench top robotic machine (laboratory tool) that acts as an artificial gut and accurately predicts glycaemic index (GI) and resistant starch (RS) in food products – See CSIRO deal to commercialise ‘artificial gut’, 2009 (Media Release)
GI and RS predictor – automated instrument for accurately predicting glycaemic index (GI) and resistant starch (RS) in food products; licensed to Stadvis Pty Ltd
Gibbsite Precipitator – software, a simulator of a crystalliser that is targeted to capture a dynamic behaviour of gibbsite precipitation process in the production of alumina – See New tool leads to efficiency improvements (Solution)
GIMMS (Geophysically Integrated Mineral Mapping Spectrometers) – instrument
Ginsert – a V-shaped metal insert that improves the positioning and discharge of fuzzy seed from the ginning point on the rib of the cotton gin. Developed in 2010, the insert reduces the contact time that seed-cotton has with the gin rib and significantly reduces seed damage that occurs at this point; it also improves the removal of fibre from the seed thus increasing the amount of lint extracted from the seed, and improving the capacity of the gin stand. International patents taken and about to be commercialised.
GLayers (Grids and Layers) – software research tool; transmittance/absorption dielectric stacks
GL Nozzle (Gas Liquid Nozzle) – instrument that reduces the amount of oxygen wasted during gold processing – See also A new jet aeration nozzle (Video)
Global Concurrent Engineering Platform – software, desktop-based computer environment with potential to halve the time to market new products by enabling worldwide workgroups to work together as if they were based at same location
GlobalHubs – diagnostic tools to monitor gas levels/greenhouse emissions in the atmosphere
Golden Promise – genetically engineered barley plant variety
GOPT design package for progressive spectacle lenses – improved software developed in the late 1990s for people suffering from the common complaint of presbyopia; allows the direct specification of the eyepath characteristics by a lens designer; now the chief design tool used for progressive lens design by SOLA international – See Spectacle lens design and Mathematical modelling for optical lens design (Achievement)
Gordon – rust resistant winter wheat variety – See Wheat breeding in Australia’s high-rainfall zone
Goyura – wine grape variety
GPW wheel (Golf Buggy Powered Wheel) – an in-wheel directional motor and controller; in development by UTS & GPW Technology P/L
GrainGene Variety ID System – a test that accurately identifies wheat and barley varieties using a panel of DNA markers; licensed to Agrifood Technology
