  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 ...

  2. Application of Frost Prevention in Food Processing Equipment

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Thermal and Environmental Concepts, Inc. proposes to utilize electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technology to reduce the amount of frost that forms on cold plates in food freezers. The defrost cycle consumes about 5-15% of the energy to operate an industrial food freezer. During Phase I of our project, we used EHD technology to reduce frost mass by 35% and frost height by as mush as 65% under cert ...

  3. Method for Control of Biting Midges Using Odor-Baited Traps

    SBC: American Biophysics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a method of trapping biting midges including Culicoides. Biting midges are economically important insect pests. Their presence in large numbers can have a detrimental impact on land development and tourism. In addition, these insects are the vector of bluetongue, an arbovirus which is transmitted in cattle and sheep during repeated blood-feeding by biting flies. Our approach ...

  4. Automated Vision for Sex Separation of Poultry Chicks


    Recognition and separation on newly-hatched poultry chicks by sex require intensive human labor in broiler hatchery operations. Segregation of chicks by gender and grow-out in gender specific management schemes offer significant benefits to the broiler industry. This project will develop an automated online vision inspection system to recognize the sex of baby chicks and separate them into differe ...

  5. Use of Plant Extracts as Environmentally Benign Corrosion Inhibitors

    SBC: DACCO SCI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DACCO SCI, INC., proposes a Phase II SBIR program to develop a corrosion inhibitor system using extracts from tobacco plants. The Phase I results show the extract to be very effective in preventing corrosion of steel and aluminum either individually or when coupled with dissimilar metals. Under many conditions, the tobacco extract performs as good as or better than chromates, which have been the c ...

    SBC: SONSIGHT INC            Topic: 86

    Well over 50 % of US land area constitutes low wind-speed sites, yet wind turbines are either not effective or only marginally effective in such low winds. To extract significantly more energy from such DOE Class 1 or Class 2 winds requires substantially increasing turbine blade rotor diameter (wind power is proportional to the square of the blade diameter). However, due to limitations on turbine ...

  7. Hyperspectral Fluorescence Imaging Detection System for Black Walnut Shell Fragments Recognition and Removal

    SBC: Industry Vision Automation, Corp.            Topic: 85

    Non-Tech Summary: The black walnut grows throughout the central and eastern United States. It's rich, tasty flavor is a high-valued food additive. Although 15.4 acres of black walnuts yield approximately 4 billon pounds of raw nuts annually, only about 20 million pounds are commercially processed. With low economic incentives and small processing capacity, growers lack motivation to harvest. ...

  8. Phage preparation for managing Salmonella in foods

    SBC: Intralytix, Inc.            Topic: 85

    Salmonellae continue to be one of the leading worldwide causes of foodborne bacterial diseases. They cause 1.2-1.4 million annual cases of salmonellosis in the USA, with associated costs estimated to be as high as $12.8 billion/year (in 1998 dollars). Despite continued and escalating efforts to curb diseases caused by foodborne bacterial pathogens, salmonellae continue to produce foodborne illness ...
