  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. Development of Commercial Wetland-Restoration Techniques Using Sphagnum

    SBC: AgResearch International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop commercial biorestoration technologies to restore the overall structure and function of degraded Sphagnum weland ecosystems. Technologies will include the development of plant tissue culture techniques for Sphagnum species, the application of commercial micropropagation protocols, and an investigation of the potential benefit of ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. MULTICHAIN LORAN-C TIME DIFFERENCE MONITOR RECEIVER

    SBC: LOCUS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    USCG SOLICITATION 90-CG5 SUGGESTS EVALUATION OF KALMAN FILTERING A DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING (DSP) TECHNIQUE, TO IMPROVE GEODETIC POSITIONING PROVIDED BY SINGLE CHAIN, AND EVENTUALLY, MULTICHAIN LORAN RECEIVERS. A DSP TECHNIQUE COMPARABLE TO KALMAN FILTERING HAS ALREADY BEEN IMPLEMENTED ON A SINGLE CHAIN LORAN RECEIVER, RESULTING IN SUBSTANTIAL GEODETIC POSITIONING IMPROVEMENTS IN NOISY, DYNAMIC E ...

  8. MAINTAINING GENETICALLY-DETERMINED ROOT SYSTEM CHARACTERISTICS USEFUL FOR URBAN TREES

    SBC: Knight Hollow Nursery Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF REPAIRING AND REPLACING PUBLIC PROPERTY DAMAGED BY SHALLOW TREE ROOTS TOTALS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ANNUALLY. THE UNEVEN GRADE OF THESE SIDEWALKS ALSO PRESENTS A LIABILITY FOR MUNICIPALITIES. THE PROBLEM IS LIKELY TO BE COMPOUNDED BY THE PROPOSED PLANTING OF AN ADDITIONAL 60 MILLION URBAN TREES. WE HAVE IDENTIFIED A POPULATION OF SEEDLING TREES WITH KNOWN ROOT GROWTH CHARACTERISTICS, SPAN ...

  9. CHARATERIZATION OF AVAII POLYMORPHISIM IN PROLACTIN GENE

    SBC: Tri-state Breeders Cooperative            Topic: N/A

    A GENETIC MARKER ASSOCIATED WITH YIELD TRAITS IN AN ELITE FAMILY OF DAIRY CATTLE HAS BEEN FOUND. THE MARKER HAS PROVEN TO BE USEFUL IN DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN SONS IN SPITE OF THE NEARLY IDENTICAL PEDIGREE MERIT. CHARACTERIZATION OFTHE AVAII POLYMORPHISM DETECTED WITH CDNA PROBES FOR PROLACTIN WILL DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT THE STRUCTURAL VARIATION IS IN THE PROLACTIN GENE.
