  1. SCAP Content Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NIST and G2 have been on the forefront of security automation with the development of the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). However, the barrier to entry for SCAP content creation is the requirement to have in depth knowledge of the underlying specifications. This project aims to allow security experts to create SCAP content without the need to be an expert in the specification. By leve ...

  9. Advanced Regenerators for Cryocoolers Operating at 10-100 Kelvin

    SBC: Chesapeake Cryogenics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The performance of high speed cryocoolers is highly dependent on an effective regenerator which has high heat capacity, large surface area, and low pressure drop. These factors can increase refrigeration capacity, lower operating temperatures and improveefficency. Parallel plate regenerators have been shown to be the most effective geometry possessing most of these characteristics. However, implem ...
