  1. Advanced Concept Basalt Fiber Reinforcement for Concrete

    SBC: Research & Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    Extensive research (Ukraine) has shown that high strength continuous fibers of basalt can be produced. These fibers are inexpensive and have exceptionally high strength, stiffness and corrosion resistance. Basalt is a naturally occurring volcanic mineral, consisting a variety concentration of oxides. The product envisioned is a low-cost, corrosion resistant replacement for steel bar in reinforc ...

  3. An Intermodal Operations Planning & Coordination System

    SBC: Zeta-Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed activity will conduct case studies of six selected United States ports to determine whether an integrated terminal information system in each of them might deliver significant benefits to port operators, port users, and shippers. Using the experience of the railroad industry as a guide, problems and possibilities for integrating information flow will be examined. The final report w ...

  5. Modeling the Introduction of Internet Services into Rural Communities

    SBC: Apu            Topic: N/A

    While the Internet may promise the potential of increased access to services and information, obstacles make access to such technology by rural businesses, educators and individuals difficult. Much research has been conducted about bringing Internet services into K-12 education, and projects have in initiated to bring better Internet access to rural communities, yet the rift between urban and ru ...

  6. Smart Helicopter Buckets for Fire Fighting

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop an improved bucket design that will revolutionize the approach to fire suppression. Helicopters now use slung buckets to deliver water, retardants and foam to fire sites. The urgency of time (fire control lines must be established before the fire overruns them) and the need for expensive equipment (helicopters typically cost $2 ...

  7. Novel Protein Food Sweetener in Transomatically Modified Bovine Milk

    SBC: GALA DESIGN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to validate the feasibility of expression in bovine milk of recombinant protein sweetener, following gene delivery by intramammary infusion of a replication defective viral vector. The sweet protein Brazzein is a natural plant product which has been isolated and characterized and for which the gene construct is available. Brazzein is a protein found in berries of the Plant Pentadiplan ...

  8. Microwave Radiation as a Pesticide Alternative for Stored-Products

    SBC: Micro-grain, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Concerns of the U.S. government over the imapct of pesticides on human health and the environment have prompted a search for alternatives for the control of insects in stored products. The proposed project will reassess the economics and practicability of using high-power microwave radiation as an alternative means to control insects in stored-products. Preliminary experiments at a frequency of ...
