  1. Lifetime Prediction Model for Pavement Repair

    SBC: Simcredible            Topic: N/A

    A software product is proposed to enhance lifetime prediction and design of structural pavements by including the effects of fatigue cracking. The fatigue lifetime prediction (FLIP) code will calculate incremental crack growth that occurs in pavements for cycles of stress below the yield stress. FLIP combines crack growth calculations with an extrapolation procedure to predict the growth of fat ...

  2. Distributed Human Augmentation of Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: AGENTAI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This novel model envisions an economy where economic growth can be accelerated without the harmful continual depopulation of America's rural areas in favor of ever more overpopulated urban centers. This will be accomplished by innovative technology, which will access two largely untapped resources, namely the underemployed, but well-educated, rural workforce and the power of ...

  3. A Volatile Antibiotic Producing Fungus for Control of Soil-Borne and Postharvest Diseases

    SBC: AgraQuest, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Agriculture is in need of safer products to replace methyl bromide and other synthetic fungicides. Soil-borne diseases caused by pathogens such as Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Verticillium and Phytophthora are a major problem in horticulture, field crop production and greenhouses causing root rots, wilts and loss of vigor and yield. Methyl bromide, a potent ozone-depleting agent be ...

  4. Development of All-Female Populations of Striped Bass

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Striped bass culture has become the fourth largest form of fish production in the U.S., trailing only catfish, trout, and salmon in terms of market value. Unfortunately, this promising new industry faces considerable market pressure from foreign competitors who often enjoy lower labor, water, and utility costs and fewer environmental regulations than encountered in the U.S. ...

  6. Dispenser for the Zero-Order Controlled Release of Pheromone Blends

    SBC: Med-e-cell            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Pheromones are an important part of insect management; they are ecologically more acceptable than insecticides. Frequently, insect management requires the release of multiple, expensive, pheromones (generally 2 or 3 different semiochemicals). Currently, multiple dispensers are required to release the various chemicals. They are mostly diffusion-controlled devices, with quest ...

  7. Novel Biochip Device for Rural Community Preparedness of Bioterrorism-Related Disasters

    SBC: MAXWELL SENSORS INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Rural communities have minimal infrastructure and capability to counteract unexpected bio-terrorist attacks. First, diagnostics of bio-terrorism related diseases remains complicated by the short incubation time and often-minute quantities of agent needed to initiate infection. A rapid, ultra-sensitive and easy to use diagnostic device is still not available. Second, rapid an ...

  8. Use of Arabidopsis Transcription Factors to Increase Rubber Yield in Guayule

    SBC: Mendel Biotech Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Natural rubber is a vital and irreplaceable raw material. The United States uses approximately 20% of the global supply for its industries and is completely dependent on imports from developing countries. A dependable rubber supply is endangered by many factors, including susceptibility to pathogen attack, diminishing acreage as growers move toward higher value crops, increa ...

  9. Production of Plants with Increased Biomass and Seed Yield

    SBC: Mendel Biotech Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will establish the feasibility of generating plants with enhanced biomass and seed yield by introduction of a particular transgene. Mendel Biotechnology, Inc. generated transgenic Arabidopsis plants in which one transcription cofactor of the AT-hook class was over-expressed. We found that these plants displayed dramatic ...
