Research Institution

According to National Transportation Research, 43% of the public roadways throughout the U.S. are
in poor or mediocre condition. With over 4 million miles of public roadways in the United States
moving nearly $17 trillion of goods across the nation, it is critical that improvements are made to the
resurfacing methods currently employed to maintain our transportation infrastructure. To achieve a
technical solution to this issue, AAPlasma is developing a plasma-based system that can rapidly and
effectively resurface and deposit new road marking in a single pass, thereby reducing the time and
resources needed to maintain our nation’s road network infrastructure. In Phase I and II of this SBIR
project, AAPlasma will focus on restoring road marking materials, however, future research projects
will expand successful results to include asphalt concrete and Portland cement.
