  1. 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 ...

  2. Delivering the Health, Environmental and Economic Benefits of Trails to Rural Americans through a High Efficiency Trail Assessment Process

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    The Universal Trail Assessment Process (UTAP) and TrailWare, software for UTAP data, were developed to obtain objective trail information. Over 700 people within Federal, State, local and non-profit agencies have been UTAP trained throughout the US. Requiring 9 to 15 person hours per mile of trail is the primary factor that limits the use of UTAP. Over 85% of rural land managers consider objective ...

  3. Recreation Trail Vehicle Barrier Providing Access to Personal Mobility Devices

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    People with mobility impairments are excluded from trails, shared-use paths, parks and other public areas where barriers are erected to prevent access by motorized trail vehicles (MTVs). To ensure the safety of trail users and the integrity of the natural environment, many recreation and/or transportation trails prohibit the use of motorized vehicles. Gates and other barriers are erected at all tr ...

  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 ...

  9. Project PREPARE: Preparing preschoolers and kindergartners who are deaf to learn to read by teaching them early critical service words typically visually and linguistically inaccessible to them through a computer-based instruction product

    SBC: HOPE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Children with significant hearing loss continually exhibit low reading levels, due in part to the difficulty they face upon entering school of understanding basal reading vocabulary, especially critical service words. Service words cannot easily be learned through the use of pictures or objects but constitute up to 75% of all words used in basal readers, including prepositions, conjunctions, artic ...

  10. Biomimetic Intervertebral Fusion Devices

    SBC: Amedica Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current interbody fusion devices for lumbar fusion need improvement owing to lower than desireable success in fusion and difficulty in postoperative assessment effusion. A promising and novel approach for intervertebral fusion is to provide a cortico-cancellous structure that can withstand spine load adequately and provide a bioactive bony ingrowth surface to e ...
