  1. Electronic Pasteurization of Meat Patties

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Accelerator Technology Corp. proposes to develop a compact, cost-effective elctron-beam disinfestation system for pasteurization of meat patties. The system is designed to be integrated into the production line of a conventional meat patty operation. In such operations, the patties are stamped from sheets of ground meat in rows of 4-5 patties, moving on a conveyor at the rate of ~1 row/second. ...

  2. Development of a Quantitative Assay for Rodent Excreta

    SBC: Biotect, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Rodent pancreatic trypsin will be isolated from rodent pancreatic tissue. The enzyme will be purified and injected into rabbits to generate polyclonal antibodies. The rabbit anti-rodent trypsin antibodies will be used to develop a sandwich ELISA assay for rodent fecal contamination in agricultural and food products.

  3. Protein Quantity and Quality for Channel Catfish Feeds

    SBC: Indi-Bel, Inc. dba Delta Western Research Center            Topic: N/A

    Protein is the most expensive component comprising a catfish feed; thus, a reduction in feed cost can most likely be achieved by either reducing the concentration of dietary protein, by using less expensive plant proteins, or by a combination of these factors. Feedstuffs of animal origin are expensive yet they are generally considered to be essential in catfish feeds. If low-protein, all plant-p ...

  4. IMPROVED EXPOXIDATION PROCESS FOR UNSATURATED NATURAL OILS

    SBC: Process Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AN IMPROVED PROCESS FOR EPOXIDIZING UNSATURATED NATURAL OILS FOR A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS. EPOXIDIZED SOYBEAN AND OTHER UNSATURATE NATURAL OILS ARE IMPORTANT SPECIALTY CHEMICAL PRODUCTS AND ARE EXAMPLES OF VALUE-ADDED APPLICATIONS OF AGRICULTURAL MATERIALS. CURRENT PROCESS TECHNOLOGIES ARE BASED ON RESEARCH DONE IN THE 1940'S AND 1950'S. MARKETS FOR EPOXIDIZED UNSATURATE ...

  5. Special Architecture to Break Speed Barriers in Real-Time Applications for Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: 3D-Computing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The 3D-Flow Processor system is a new concept in very fast, real-time system architectures. The throughput of this system can reach up to 100 millin frames/sec, yet unlike currently available systems of comparable speed, it is fully programmable and extremely flexible. Algorithms for processing information from the input of multiple sensor can easily be implemented on a 3D-Flow system to achiev ...

  6. Processing of Selectively-Discontinuous-Fiber (SDF) Composite Materials

    SBC: Advanced Composite Operations            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is directed at creating discontinuous unidirectional composite from continuous unidirectional prepreg. The process, Selectively-Discontinuous-Fiber (SDF), introduces micro-cuts in preimpregnated unidirectional materials at specified locations. This process will allow unidirectional composite prepreg to be used for the fabrication of complex-compound components that have be ...

  7. Augmenting Fire Fighter Training With Virtual Reality Technology

    SBC: 5, Inc. (full Immersion            Topic: N/A

    Current fire fighting training methods are possibly lacking maximum effectiveness due to increasing safety and environmental regulation. Additionally, performance measurement in large classes becomes difficult unless trainees have identical training scenarios and evaluations. This proposal details the analysis of current training methods and subsequent emulation of them using virtual reality (VR ...

  8. Ground-Penetrating Radar for Minefield Detection and Mapping

    SBC: Aes International Corp            Topic: N/A

    The AES International Corporation (AESI) of College Station, Texas, in concert with Texas A&M University personnel, can build an airborne ground-penetrating radar system to detect land mines from an Unmanned Airborne Vehicle (UAV). The radar itself will be a totally new and fully airworthy flight demonstration unit, the principles and characteristics of which will be conceptually similar to two p ...

  9. Fiber Optic Coupled Infrared Focal Plane Array (FOCIRFPA)

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AMI utilizes a technique known as the "ribbon wind" approach to manufacture infrared fiber image bundles. The ribbon wind approach provides a unique opportunity to manufacture relatively low cost, large format, medium resolution infrared fiberoptic image bundles for industrial, commercial and military applications. Indeed, this approach has been applied successfully by numerous fiberoptic manufa ...

  10. Embedded Optical Fiber Sensors in Solid Rocket Motor Cases

    SBC: Astro Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This research project will investigate the use of optical-fiber sensors within a solid rocket motor case. THese sensors will be multi-functional and possess the ability to measure displacement (or strain) and temperature. They will be capable of embedment "in-site" or can be bonded to the exterior of motors that have already been manufactured. If successful, the effect of forces exerted on the ...
