  2. Honey Bee Queen Presence Indicator for Certification of Non-Africanization

    SBC: Humbug Mountain Research            Topic: N/A

    The Royal Presence Certifier (RPC) provides the beekeeper with a device for determining that the European honey bee queen which was initially resident in a managed hive remains present without the beekeeper having to open the hive for inspection. The RPC functions by sensing the movement of a tag (glued to the dorsum of the queen's thorax) passing by a sensor located within the hive. The feasibi ...

  4. CURE MONITORING OF PLYWOOD AND COMPOSITE WOOD PRODUCTS

    SBC: Kdc Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NO DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS EXIST TO DIRECTLY MONITOR THE QUAILITY OF MANUFACTURING PARAMETERS OF PLYWOOD AND OTHER WOOD-BASED COMPOSITES DURING THE PRESSING WHERE ADJUSTMENTS OF TIME, PRESSURE OR TEMPERATURE CAN BE MADE. LACKING SUCH TOOLS, MOST MANUFACTURING GUIDELINES HAVE BEEN DERIVED AFTER-THE-FACT USING TRIAL AND ERROR DESTRUCTIVE AND NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING METHODS. AS A RESULT, THE PROPERTIES AND F ...

  5. PONDWAYS: A NEW INTENSIVE-EXTENSIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR RECYCLING OF AQUACULTURE EFFLUENTS

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Aquaculture is increasing at an annual rate of 20% and has become a $1 billion industry in the U.S. that provides more than 25% of our seafood supplies. Due to limited water supplies, future aquaculture development will probably involve closed systems in which the culture water is treated and recycled. Current recycling technologies are based on industrial waste treatment methods, but aquaculture ...

  6. BROADCAST SEEDING METHODS FOR MAROALGAL MARICULTURE

    SBC: Neushul Mariculture Inc.            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL MARICULTURE OF MACROALGAE AND SESSILE ANIMALS, AS CURRENTLY PRACTICED, INVOLVES LABOR-INTENSIVE, CONTROLLED SETTLING OF SPORES OR LARVAE ON CLEAN ROPE, NETTING, OR SHELLS. THESE SUBSTRATES ARE THEN PLACED ON FARMS IN THE SEA. IN CONTRAST, NATURAL PROPAGATION OF NEARLY ALL MARINE ORGANISMS INVOLVES THE BROADCASTING OF MICROSCOPIC SPORES, GAMETES, OR LARVAE, THAT ARE ADAPTED TO ATTACH AND ...

  8. DEMONSTRATING COMMERCIAL POTENTIAL OF ZINC FINGER PROTEINS FOR GENERATING VALUE-ADDED CROPS

    SBC: SANGAMO BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Zinc finger proteins (ZFPs) of the C2-H2 class are DNA-binding proteins that are ubiquitous in nature. By modifying the amino acids of the recognition helices according to a recently devised recognition code, ZFP's can be designed to bind DNA sequences of choice. This development has made possible the construction of chimeric transcription repressors and activators for regulating genes in plants. ...

  10. Low Cost Fire Intensity Mapper

    SBC: Space Instruments            Topic: N/A

    The ability to quickly detect and accurately map fire areas is an invaluable asset for fighting fires. Anairborne imaging system which can accurately map both the flame and ash areas with respect to groundfeatures can greatly aid fire-fighting teams and airborne water-tanker pilots. The thermal infraredsystems now used for fire detection mapping have three significant problems: 1) limited dynam ...
