  1. Cost Effective, Power Efficient, Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More than 52% of U.S. urban highway congestion is a direct result of highway incidents.  Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, cost-effective and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems.  Several solutions have been proposed but none could satisfy requirements of transportation authorities.  Central Signal's research and development, ...

  2. A Novel Sulfite Pretreatment Process (SPORL) for Efficient Biochemical Conversion Woody Biomass to Bioethanol


    Woody biomass is a very important feedstock for the future bioeconomy for the rural US for its availability in large quantities, ease in storage, and low cost for transportation. However, woody biomass, especially softwood, is the most difficult to convert biochemically to fermentable sugars due to its strong physical integrity and chemical recalcitrance. The goal of this project is to develop a c ...

  3. Synergistic, Natural Compounds as Insecticides

    SBC: SUMMERDALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Japanese beetle is a highly destructive pest of more than 400 plant species including fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, field and forage crops, and weeds. Since the first detection in the United States in a nursery near Riverton, New Jersey in 1916, it has spread to many states east of the Mississippi River (except Florida), as well as parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Ka ...

  4. Organic Acid Formulations for Wood Protection: Inhibition of Mold Fungi

    SBC: SUMMERDALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Humans are exposed constantly to molds in the environment, both indoors and outdoors. Problems arise when the immune system is suppressed (HIV infection, cancer treatment), over-responsive (allergy) or when exposures are exceedingly high (irritation and mycotoxin effects). Many people are allergic to molds, and allergic responses include hay fever and asthma. Certain molds such as Stachybotrys cha ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
