  1. MICROBIAL CONTROL OF POSTHARVES DECAY IN TROPICAL FRUITS

    SBC: Ecoscience Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO IDENTIFY MICROORGANISMS CAPABLE OF PREVENTING POSTHARVEST DECAY IN TROPICAL FRUITS CAUSED BY PLANT PATHOGENIC FUNGI. ECOSCIENCE HAS DEMONSTRATED SUCCESS IN THE MICROBIAL CONTROL OF POSTHARVEST FUNGAL DECAYS IN POME FRUITS. WE WILL BUILD ON THIS EXPERIENCE TO DISCOVER AND DEVELOP MICROBIAL CONTROL AGENTS THAT CAN PREVENT INFECTION (E.G., CROWN ROT OF BANANA) OR INHIBIT ...

  2. COMPUTATIONAL ANALYSIS OF VENTILATION SYSTEMS FOR LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ENVIRONMENT SURROUNDING CONFINED ANIMALS DIRECTLY AFFECTS THE PRODUCTIVITY OF THE LIVESTOCKINDUSTRY. A GOOD VENTILATION SYSTEM, WHICH CONTROLS THIS ENVIRONMENT, IS ESSENTIAL FOR MANTAINING THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF ANIMALS AND WORKERS IN THE LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS. HOWEVER, THE DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF SUCH A SYSTEM IS A COMPLICATED PROCESS. IT INVOLVES OPTIMIZATION OF VARIOUS GOVERNING PARAMETER ...

  3. A Computational Tool for Design and Operation of Coolers/Dryers for Feed Pellets

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cooling and drying of feed pellets are the most important operations in the feed manufacturing industry. These operations are carried out simultaneously, in a single machine, by passing ambient air through a moving bed of pellets. However, simultaneous control of both these processes is very difficult. Overdrying of pellets is a common problem that costs several million dollars to feed processi ...

  4. Electron Disinfestation/Sterilization of Powders and Aggregates Using Pneumatic Transfer

    SBC: Medpack, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The sterilization of powders and disinfestation of aggregates using existing technology present difficult product handling problems and often unacceptable economics. Ethylene Oxide is widely used for this purpose, while the alternate non-chemical (physical) processes of heat and gamma - radiations are expensive and frequently result in unacceptable damage to the product. The proposed program wil ...

  5. IMPROVING PLANT CUTTING ORIENTATION SENSING WITH TACTILE SENSOR ARRAYS

    SBC: The Oxboro Tech Group Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AUTOMATED PLANT PROPAGATION BY CUTTAGE (PREPARATION AND PLANTING OF CUTTINGS) REQUIRES AN EFFICACIOUS, NON-HUMAN MEANS OF SENSING THE ORIENTATION OF EACH CUTTING. CURRENT EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO BASED SYSTEMS ARE TOO EXPENSIVE, SLOW, UNRELIABLE, AND/OR COMPLEX FOR WIDESPREAD USE BY THE COMMERICAL NURSERY, FLORIST, AND FORESTRY INDUSTRIES. PRELIMINARY STUDIES INDICATE THAT TACTILE ARRAY SENSING OF CUTTI ...

  6. Instrument for Measurement of Global and Direct Components of Solar Ultraviolet-B Radiation

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project would lead to the development of a low cost ($10-20,000) solar ultraviolet-B radiation instrument capable of measuring the narrowband direct, diffuse and global solar spectral radiation in the 300-368 nm wavelength range. This new instrument is an extension of the well-proven multifilter rotating shadowband radiometer and would substantially improve the existing measurement o ...

  9. Apparatus for the Testing of Solid Cryogenic Mechanical Properties

    SBC: Advanced Materials            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort in Phase I is to identify properties of propellants that solidify at cryogenic temperatures, "cryosolids", that will be tested in Phase Ii and to deliver a detailed design of a cryogenic testing device. This device will be able to measure tensile, flexural, shear and compressive strength, elastic moduli, and hardness of these cryosolids. In addition, this device will be able ...

  10. Using Simulation/Animation Modeling Techniques to Optimize the ROCC/SOCC Computer communications System

    SBC: Advanced Visual Data, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Joint Surveillance System Computer-Communications System (C-CS) provides mission-critical support to Region Operations Control Centers (ROCCs), Sector Operations Control Centers (SOCCs), and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). New mission requirements (drug interdiction) and new sensor/system developments exceed the scope of the original design and mission of the C-CS. As a resu ...
