  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 ...

  6. Intelligent Mapping of the Farm Using Low-Cost, GPS-Enabled Cameras During Existing Farm Activities

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 812

    With the advent of precision agriculture the way we farm is changing. Technologies exist to addprecision to all aspects of the farm; however these practices all require information that is notreadily available to the small farm. Current field mapping technology has a financial and timecommitment that puts it out of reach of small farms. The aim of the proposed research is to enableprecision agricu ...

  10. Real-time Avoidance of Weather Hazards In Dynamic Environments (RAWHIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N182099

    Unmanned systems play a critical military role, and require the ability to “fly through areas of operations on a near-all-weather 24/7 basis” so “potential weather-related incidents can be avoided” (OSD, 2013). To increase UAS flight safety and avoid weather phenomena (e.g., clouds, haze, ash), we propose a system for Real-time Avoidance of Weather Hazards In Dynamic Environments (RAWHIDE) ...
