  1. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  2. Enhanced Control of Fruit Ripening

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a growth hormone for fruits and vegetables that is generated by the plants themselves; that is, it acts as a self-ripening agent. Hence, the removal of ethylene gas can play a central role in maintaining the freshness of these products. Whereas the temperature and the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide gases are also important system variables that demand a significant economic invest ...

  3. Enhanced Performance of Agriculture Based Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A. Water must be removed from biodegradable hydraulic fluids as they react with water and degrade insitu. B. Biodegradable hydraulic fluids for farm equipment provide a significant improvement over traditional petroleum based fluids due to decreased pollution. Increase the use and value of biodegradable hydraulic fluids by development of a membrane-based dewatering system.

  4. Agricultural Emissions Reduction Using Bio-Fuels with Membrane Supplied Nitrogen

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The use of biodiesel offers significant advantages with regards to the reduction of total harmful engine emissions with the exception of NOx. Biodiesel is a renewable resource and soybean oil is known to be economically viable as a biodiesel fuel. Recent studies from the Environmental Protection Agency have shown that soybean oil alone or blended with #2 diesel fuel results in a significant decrea ...

  5. Q-TRAP: In-Transit Detection of Bioinvasive Forest Insects in Intermodal Shipping Containers

    SBC: IPM Development Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The rate of invasion of harmful organisms into the USA is now higher than ever before. The current concern over the potential for species introductions to be used strategically as instruments of bio-terrorism or bio-warfare appears to be well founded. Growth in the volume and complexity of international trade, combined with the liberalization of regulatory regimes to encourage trade, has at once i ...

  6. Effects of Aqueous Extracts from Vermicomposts (teas) on Crop Growth and in Suppressing Plant Diseases, Nematodes and Arthropod Pests

    SBC: Oregon Soil Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There are many environmental problems associated with the disposal of large quantities of organic wastes, including animal wastes, food and garden wastes, and industrial wastes. More than 50% of organic wastes produced in the USA are currently disposed into landfills at very considerable economic and environmental costs. There are many constraints to utilizing these organic wastes on agricultural ...

  7. Low-Cost, Networked, Disposable Chemical Sensor

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: SOCOM05010

    There is an acute need for a networked chemical sensor that is inexpensive enough to allow it to be treated as a disposable item - deployed and left in-place until the end of its useful life, or until operations move out of communications range. Electrochemical microarray sensors can be fabricated at low enough unit cost to make the development of a disposable sensor node feasible. These sensors ...
