  1. WirlWind (WIReLess Wide Area INciDent Network)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Problems with current radio based incident communications systems include: only VHF or UHF radio technology is used, limited number and range of frequencies, interagency cooperation hampered by incompatible frequencies and devices, terrain causes line-of-site and visibility problems for communications, potential for single point failures, geared towards voice capability, few data transmit/receive ...

  2. Interactive CD Guide for Food-Borne Fungal Identification

    SBC: BCN Research Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Filamentous microfungi (often colloquially known as "molds") are a major cause of food wastage throughout the world, accounting for the loss of about 10% of all food production. Although good textbooks on food mycology are available, a clear need exists for simpler and more visual identification systems. Because of ease of manufacture and use, interactive potential and ability to display color pic ...

  3. All Aboard: Development of Portable Watercraft Transfer Technology to Increase Access to Boating for People with Disabilities

    SBC: BLUE SKY DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Portable, accessible and affordable watercraft transfer technology will be developed so individuals with mobility impairments can more safely and easily go boating and fishing. Without transfer technology, it takes a minimum of two people to transfer someone into a boat, at considerable risk to both the person being transferred and the people lifting them. The transfer mechanism's universal design ...

  4. Detection of Termites Using Distributed Wireless Monitoring

    SBC: Hatchpoint, LLC            Topic: N/A

    While termites inflict almost $4 Billion dollars in damage per year in the United States, termite control still depends upon labor intensive and expensive manual monitoring techniques. This project will determine the feasibility of deploying acoustic sensor arrays that will alert a Pest Management Professional (PMP) of termite activity.

  5. Cost Effective and Reliable Anaerobic Digestion for Agricultural By-products

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The current problem with on farm anaerobic digesters is the high failure rate. Some failures are do to plugging because of the viscous and heterogeneous nature of agricultural animal waste. Other digesters have been abandoned because the management of the digester was too difficult or required to much time. The purpose of this project is to develop a novel method along with the machinery capable f ...

  6. Dietary L-Thyroxine to Induce Molt Without Feed Withdrawal in Laying Chicken, Broiler Breeder, and Turkey Breeder Hens to Extend Production

    SBC: Hooge Consulting Service            Topic: N/A

    Molting (reproductive rejuvenation) of poultry to extend table or fertile egg production is a well accepted commercial practice in the U.S. However, the conventional method of ~10-day feed withdrawal to induce molt is increasingly viewed as unacceptable by McDonald's, Wendy's, AVMA, and the egg consuming public. The use of dietary L-thyroxine (T4; the natural molting hormone) for poultry can provi ...

  7. Development of Environmentally Safe Transgenic Turfgrass with Improved Traits

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Trait improvement of turfgrass through genetic engineering is important to the turfgrass industry and the environment. However, the possibility of transgene escape to wild and non-transformed species raises commercial and ecological concerns. The purpose of this project is to determine the usefulness of genetically engineered male sterility in turfgrass for producing stable, environmentally safe t ...

  8. Predictive Modeling of the Engineered Wood Properties Using Genetic Algorithms with Distributed Data Fusion

    SBC: Microbial Insights, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Situation or Problem: The U.S. forest products industry contributed $406 billion to the U.S. economy and employed 2,140,399 people in 2002. Currently the forest products industry is facing unprecedented competition from international imports and high wood costs. In 2003, the engineered wood panel sector produced 64.3 billion square feet of panels of which wood waste ranged from 3% to 9%. Reducing ...
