  1. Cyclone Collection system for Radionuclide Detection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA182006

    The detection of radionuclide aerosols is a critical indicator of a nuclear detonation. Existing sensors as part of the International Monitoring System operate in a batch process and typically have a 48 to 72 hour delay between aerosol sample collection and measurement activities due to limits of instrument sensitivity. The continuous, instantaneous measurements of atmospheric aerosol radiation le ...

  2. Ethylene Permeation in Control of Fruit Ripening

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 85

    All fruits and vegetables generate ethylene.Even low concentrations of ethylene accelerate fruitripening.A process that removes ethylene as it is generated can play a central role in maintainingthe freshness of fruits and vegetables.Hence much effort and significant cost normally go into thecontrol of the atmosphere and temperature to which these fruits and vegetables are exposed largelyto reduce ...

  3. Cover Crop Information System: Using remote sensing and modeling to map detailed information about cover crops across wide regions

    SBC: Dagan, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Agricultural row crops occupy over 240 million acres of land in the United States (USDA-NASS2012). Decisions regarding the implementation of management practices in these agricultural areashave a significant effect on other environmental outcomes including soil erosion water quality andcarbon sequestration. There is currently no systematic and cost-effective method for documentingdetailed informat ...

  5. Nanocomposite Binder Systems for Dispersion Coatings that Enable Biodegradable, Paper-Based Packaging with Enhanced Barrier Properties

    SBC: RENUVIX LLC            Topic: 81

    Paper is the largest material used in the packaging industry due to its low handling costenvironmentally friendly nature recyclability and low weight. The global demand for paper andboard in 2016 was $279 billion and is expected to reach $518 billion by 2022. Compared to plasticpaper and paperboard are produced from cellulose which is the most abundant natural material.However hydrophilicity and p ...

  6. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  7. Semi-Autonomous Follow-me Biomass Baler

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS TRACTOR CORPORATION            Topic: 813

    This project addresses USDA-NIFA's research priorities regarding crop management systems that promote energy conservation and efficiency, including the use of alternative and renewable energy resources. This proposal outlines a plan to prove the research concept of a Single-pass Autonomous Follow-me (SAF) Baler. The SAF baler is intended to bale the available supply of corn stover during corn ...

  8. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  9. Enhanced Membranes for Dewatering of Black Liquor

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 81

    Compact Membrane Systems (CMS) proposes to employ membrane systems for pressure-driven separation of water from black liquor to replace the first two stages of existing multiple-effect evaporators. This is a promising approach to considerably reduce the steam energy required for concentration. Membrane materials must withstand high temperature, high salinity and high pH conditions. Fouling of the ...

  10. Nanocomposite Binder Systems for Dispersion Coatings that enable Biodegradable, Paper-Based Packaging with Enhanced Barrier Properties

    SBC: RENUVIX LLC            Topic: 81

    Packaging is critically important to our society. Appropriate packaging protects its contents from the environment and, thus, inhibits physiochemical and/or biochemical deterioration. According to the World Packaging Organization, the packaging market is currently worth $600 billion and is expected to increase to $1 trillion by 2020. The common materials used for packaging include paper, plastic, ...
