  1. High Yield, High Efficiency Bio-Refining

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: N/A

    Processing of vegetable oils is complicated by the need to remove free fatty acids. Washing with caustic is a viable process but is inefficient because fatty acids and caustic form soaps which cause emulsions. These emulsions cause a yield loss of 1-1.5% or 160-240 Million lb/yr of soybean oil alone. The purpose of this project is to improve yields in vegetable oil processing with a novel non-disp ...

  2. Efficacy of Manganese Peroxidase Produced from Maize in Pulp Bleaching

    SBC: Applied Biotechnology Institute, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The pulp and paper industry require the removal or bleaching of lignin as an important manufacturing step for many of their products. Chemical bleaching is the preferred current process for whitening because of its relatively low cost. The bleaching process uses large amounts of chlorinated and caustic chemicals to brighten raw pulp which is brown in color due to the presence of residual lignin. D ...

  3. Time-Release Termite Control Coatings for Concrete Foundations

    SBC: Environment Services and Products            Topic: N/A

    Formosan termites are cellulose eating subterranean insects that build colonies in the soil and cause billions of dollars of damage every year. They invade buildings from beneath by cracks in the foundation or by constructing mud tubes over concrete foundation walls to reach wood. Anti-termite treatment under and around building foundations with persistent pesticides was effective and long-lived. ...

  4. Uniform Strategy for Decontamination of Stored Food

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The impact of acute and chronic disease via exposure to pathogens and chemical contaminants in food as well as financial losses incurred from such contaminants is significant. In an effort to increase the safety of foods, many intervention strategies have been developed, though none have been successful for uniform reduction of diverse food-derived chemical and biological contaminants in foods. Oz ...

  5. Improved, GC-O Based, Malodor Assessment of Swine CAFO's with Novel Air Sampling Technology

    SBC: Microanalytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Investigative odor research work to date indicates that with increasing distance from high-density swine feeder operations the residual odor is increasingly caused by a limited number of high priority odorous volatile chemicals. These character defining odorants appear to be dominated by compounds of relatively low volatility and high polarity. Recent work suggests that, as previously shown for hi ...

  6. Rapid Pen Side Diagnostic Test for Classical Swine Fever

    SBC: Systems and Processes Engineering Corporation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    1. CSF is a highly contagious viral disease of swine. 2. The US is free of this disease; however, the disease is widespread in most islands of the Caribbean Sea, and in Mexico, and Central and South America. 3. Either enhancement of presently available tests or development of newer tests is of utmost importance. 4. The US must be prepared to protect its swine industry from the threat of either ina ...

  7. Structure from Motion

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: AF04170

    The Real-Time Structure From Motion (RTSFM) system combines state-of-the-art techniques and novel methods to compute 3D models of battlefields in real time from calibrated image sequences. Unlike most computational stereo approaches, the work is tailored for long sequences of calibrated imagery under near-planar small-baseline motion – sequences typically generated from loitering unmanned aeria ...

  8. Expert Intelligent Match of Requirements and Solutions

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: AF04087

    ExPERT is an intelligent search engine that unifies neurosymbolic computing with advanced natural language processing techniques derived from ontological semantics. The primary operational goal for ExPERT is for use in determing whether a proposed solution matches identified Air Force needs in order to amplify the effectiveness of an analyst and maximize his time. However, ExPERT can be used to ...

  9. Automated Tools to Assist FDO Duties

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: AF05099

    21st Century Technologies presents the Phase I SBIR project, TEGO (from Latin, tego, to conceal, protect, shield). TEGO will analyze text messages between US and foreign coalition personnel to detect disclosure-perhaps unintentional-of sensitive information to generate an alert for a human decision maker (i.e., a Foreign Disclosure Officer or FDO). The process is currently too manual to be of ef ...

  10. ATO-STREAM: Streaming ATO Generation

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: AF05107

    Today's ATO process is inherently complex, and the complexity increases as the Air Force moves to Effects-based Operations (EBO) and dynamic tasking. To support these next generation Air Tasking requirements, 21st Century Technologies and C3I Associates present ATO-Stream, a capability, leveraging previous work, that takes a continuous stream of targets, resources, and battlefield conditions an ...
