  1. MICROBIAL CONTROL OF POSTHARVES DECAY IN TROPICAL FRUITS

    SBC: Ecoscience Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO IDENTIFY MICROORGANISMS CAPABLE OF PREVENTING POSTHARVEST DECAY IN TROPICAL FRUITS CAUSED BY PLANT PATHOGENIC FUNGI. ECOSCIENCE HAS DEMONSTRATED SUCCESS IN THE MICROBIAL CONTROL OF POSTHARVEST FUNGAL DECAYS IN POME FRUITS. WE WILL BUILD ON THIS EXPERIENCE TO DISCOVER AND DEVELOP MICROBIAL CONTROL AGENTS THAT CAN PREVENT INFECTION (E.G., CROWN ROT OF BANANA) OR INHIBIT ...

  2. Electron Disinfestation/Sterilization of Powders and Aggregates Using Pneumatic Transfer

    SBC: Medpack, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The sterilization of powders and disinfestation of aggregates using existing technology present difficult product handling problems and often unacceptable economics. Ethylene Oxide is widely used for this purpose, while the alternate non-chemical (physical) processes of heat and gamma - radiations are expensive and frequently result in unacceptable damage to the product. The proposed program wil ...

  3. Instrument for Measurement of Global and Direct Components of Solar Ultraviolet-B Radiation

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project would lead to the development of a low cost ($10-20,000) solar ultraviolet-B radiation instrument capable of measuring the narrowband direct, diffuse and global solar spectral radiation in the 300-368 nm wavelength range. This new instrument is an extension of the well-proven multifilter rotating shadowband radiometer and would substantially improve the existing measurement o ...

  5. Automated Accurate Aircraft Weighing System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, an innovative aircraft weighing system based on a set of piezopolymar film pad sensors is described. The wieghing system, which would operate automatically as the aircraft taxi over it, would be unobtrusive, accurate, and reliable. These sensor pads could be integrated into the flight deck surface below the grated rubber surface finish. These thin (20-30 mils) piezopolymer sensing pads ...

  6. Catalytic Conversion Recycling Process for Composite Aircraft Components

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cured aircraft composite materials present a particularly difficult challenge for recycling technology. Those materials have mostly thermosetting epoxy matrices and occur in intimate association with metals, paints, and coatings. Current techniques for recycling thermoset composites, mostly for automotive sheet molding compounds (SMC), involve pulverizing the material for use as fillers. Th ...

  7. Tertiary Recycling Process for Shipboard Plastic Processor Product

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel tertiary recycling process is proposed for investigation as an economical means for recycling shipboard plastic waste. Early development work has shown that this process can convert a wide variety of polymers and composites into low molecular weight hydrocarbons at temperatures below 200'C. The hydrocarbons produced can then be reused as chemicals, fuels, or monomers. Metal, glass, and fil ...

  8. Three Dimentional Target Location From Video Images

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are strong motivations for the development of accurate, efficient algorithms for the three-dimensional location of stationary or moving targets from one or more video sensors. In this proposal we describe an effort to accomplish this task by exploiting ALPHATECH's unique expertise in all related technology areas: extraction of information from imagery, multi-object tracking, three-dimens ...

  9. Recovery of Pyrotechnic Ingredients Using Supercritical Fluids

    SBC: APHIOS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Many pyrotechnics contain valuable resources which could be used in commercial applications, for example metals (e.g. magnesium, aluminum); metallic salts of copper, strontium, and barium; oxidizer (e.g. sodium nitrate, potassium Perchlorate); binders such as viton, and dyes which have reclaimed value. The Navy is seeking technology which can recover the valuable ingredients from pyrotechnic flar ...

  10. Methodology to Predict Ballistic Penetration and Damage of Composite Laminated Structures

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current utilization of composite materials in air and surface weapons systems and structures is extensive, and the use of these materials can be expected to increase in the future. Weapons effectiveness assessments and the design of protective structures require methodologies to predict the terminal ballistic interactions between projectiles and fragments penetrating composite laminated target st ...
