  1. Low-cost Low-power Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More that 52% of the U.S. highway congestion in urban areas is a direct result of highway incidents. Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, low-cost and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems. Several solutions have been proposed but none could meet the requirements of transportation authorities. Central Signal, funded by federal agencies, has done ...

  2. A novel process for converting wood chips into improved composite boards, chemcials, and fuels.

    SBC: BIOPULPING INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Medium Density Fiberboard or MDF industry in North America is facing many challenges, largely as a result of the weak housing market. Residential construction is 20 percent below 2006 levels and it is not likely that an improvement will happen before mid 2008. Rising imports of secondary wood products from China and other low costs countries also have a detrimental impact on the North American ...

  3. Targeted Homologous Recombination in Meiotic Plant Cells.Phase II

    SBC: RXOA BIOSCIENCES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Rxoa Biosciences is developing a new technology known as Homologous Recombination (HR) which will give researchers the ability to precisely modify the genetic makeup of plants. Currently, this technique for modifying the genetic makeup of an organism has only been practical for bacterial, animal and yeast research. Plant researchers have used a very inefficient "shot-gun" approach to modifying the ...

  4. Novel Chemistry for Effective Control of Dry Bean Disease

    SBC: SUMMERDALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Phaseolus dry beans are the leading grain legume crop with an annual world production of 20 million metric tons (mmt) and the U.S. is the leading export nation marketing 40% (0.4 mmt) of all dry bean production overseas. Dry or dry edible beans (DEB) are produced in the U.S. on 1.7 million acres by nearly 11,000 farms with estimated sales at $1.8 billion. Production occurs in fourteen states and i ...

  5. Safer, Non-Selective Weed Control for Organic Growers and Home Consumers

    SBC: SUMMERDALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Rapid growth of organic agriculture has created a greater demand for effective weed control, the most urgent problem facing organic growers. Current weed control methods are inefficient, expensive and labor-intensive, resulting in substantial reductions in profitability for fruit and vegetable growers. Summerdale, Inc. will develop a new herbicide for organic growers. The synergistic combination o ...

  6. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
