Axial Vector Energy Corp. (AXVC.PK)
Axial Vector Energy Corp., a global solutions provider, is focused on owning, developing, investing in and licensing revolutionary technologies. The company’s cutting-edge technologies are designed to fulfill global engine and energy needs by delivering greater fuel-efficiency, cost effectiveness, versatility, and environmental sensitivity than ever before in venues from the commercial to the industrial.
The company is developing a family of electric power generators that consume less fuel and can be made smaller than any other internal combustion generator. Axial also has the Axial Vector Gas-Cam Engine, a four-stroke engine designed for marine applications. It has substantially fewer parts, essentially eliminating the need for a transmission, is 50% lighter, and is half the size of conventional engines. All of this results in a dramatic reduction in maintenance costs and fuel consumption.
Axial is also in the final stages of development of a diesel engine, also capable of running on other fuels, which is lighter and more powerful than comparable engines, and requires far less maintenance. In fact, it has been calculated that, if the engine were placed in a standard truck and driven continuously at approximately 50 mph, you could expect to go 2 million miles before requiring an overhaul.
The company’s Joint Venture with Petrosonics, Petro-AVEC, is focused on developing, financing, and marketing Petrosonics’ sulfur removal technology worldwide. The technology increases the amount of refined product extracted from a barrel of oil. The process increases API (American Petroleum Institute) gravity and volume while reducing oil density and hydrogen loss, rendering more usable refined end-product than traditional methods and even turns “sour oil” into a less sour product.
Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH.OB)
It can be argued that, in the past 50 years, the single greatest change in the way we live has been the substitution of information for materials. For instance, instead of having to ship materials, like books or papers half way across the country, we simply download the information to our computer. Of course the change is more than just saved time and convenience, it’s a dramatic reduction in the energy expended to get the information we want. Instead of roads full of cars and trucks, plus the energy used to create paper and plastic, we use electrons and photons, which weigh nothing and take very little energy to transmit.
But a surprisingly major part of this information revolution goes unnoticed. It’s the replacement of currency and paper checks with electronic payment systems, allowing the transfer of value without anything actually moving. The time and energy previously devoted to generating and passing billions of pieces of paper every hour of every day has been largely eliminated and much of this is due to the use electronic cards.
Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH.OB), a payment solution provider, is one of the best examples of creative and flexible application of card technologies. The company uses a range of technologies to allow the convenient transfer of value from companies to customers or from companies to employees, including payroll cards, gift cards, rebate programs and customer loyalty cards.
For example, payroll cards provide an easy way to pay temp workers, student workers, remote employees, or any worker that does not have a bank account. Each pay period, funds are automatically deposited to the employee’s card account, giving them immediate access no matter where they are located. Another example is the use of re-loadable prepaid cards to give customers a way to pay for products while encouraging brand loyalty. The cards can be reloaded at selected retail locations, online or at a bank. And non re-loadable cards can be used by retailers for gift cards or other one-time-use situations, including rebates. Government agencies can use prepaid benefit cards to deposit social assistance payments, versus issuing large numbers of manual checks.
Consorteum sees itself as helping to lead this paperless revolution by providing highly flexible and customizable payment solutions to companies that would otherwise be forced to do things the old fashioned way.
Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB)
Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc. is a company focused on the development of high performance technical fibers and polymers utilizing spider genes for insertion into silkworms. The idea is to create a transgenic variety of silkworms capable of spinning a new “super fiber” that is similar or an exact copy of natural spider silk, which is one of the strongest and most resilient fibers known.
The company has acquired the exclusive rights, in their field of use, to the genetic sequences patented by the University of Wyoming and the genetic engineering technology developed by the University of Notre Dame. The company is also working in conjunction with leading genetic engineers at these universities toward the goal of producing a transgenic variety of silkworms.
While the production of a “super fiber” is the primary focus of Kraig Biocraft at this time, the company is also considering the production of other unique proteins utilizing transgenic silkworms as a unique protein expression platform. There is thought to be a large, viable market for these unique proteins within the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and other research driven industries.
As part of the company’s intellectual property portfolio, Kraig Biocraft has the exclusive rights to use the patented spider silk gene sequences in silkworms within the United States. The company’s intellectual property portfolio also includes a separate US provisional patent application regarding certain methodologies, genetic sequences, organic polymers and composites of fibers. It is expected that Kraig Biocraft’s intellectual property portfolio will continue to grow over the coming years.
Sector 10 Inc. (SECI.OB)
Sector 10, Inc. is focused on introducing an entirely new paradigm in public safety. While billions of tax dollars are wasted in emergency response, little is spent on preparedness. By pre-deploying emergency life response equipment, the company is leading the way toward enabling disaster victims to take care of themselves until first responders arrive on the scene.
However, disaster victims aren’t the only ones reaping the lifesaving benefits of implementing Sector 10’s products. With new requirements just out, building owners could also benefit from lower insurance costs due to decreased liability risks. In fact, with the new Fire Codes introduced and as the company deploys its systems across the nation, building owners and tenants could actually increase their liability exposure by not having Sector 10’s products.
Sector 10’s pre-deployed SRU unit contains life support equipment such as gas masks, oxygen, iodine tablets, and other emergency medical supplies, as well as has the ability to transform into an evacuation chair. Equally important as the medical supplies, the units also enable telecommunication between the first responders and the disaster victims.
Sector 10 is the only emergency-response system company placing such strong emphasis on pre-deployed resources as a way to save lives, avert injuries, and reduce liability. The company is in the right place at the right time to lead an extremely fragmented industry and dominate a tremendous growth opportunity. Sector 10 may be one of the most undervalued gems in the marketplace.
Suspect Detection Systems, Inc. (SDSS.OB)
Suspect Detection Systems, Inc., an Israeli based advanced security systems company, has created what some people are calling the most significant development in security since the invention of the polygraph. Their innovative technological offering is seen by some as a truly conceptual leap that promises to significantly affect the nature of both governmental and commercially applied security systems around the world.
The uniqueness of their approach rests on their state-of-the-art behavior pattern recognition technology. Their system, although it incorporates biometric input and analysis, is qualitatively different than a lie detector. Rather, it is a powerful screening and investigation tool designed to identify anyone harboring “hostile intent”. It accomplishes this through a sophisticated combination of software and hardware that is actually self-learning, and identifies anomalies in behavior and response, while taking into consideration subtle differences in reaction patterns related to language and social conventions found in different parts of the world. As a result, it can be used to screen for terrorists on a global basis, but can also be applied to criminal, military, and even commercial security environments.
In a typical airport security deployment, the subject being tested simply sits down, puts their passport on a scanner that reads where they are from, and places their hand on a special sensor that collects biometric data as they are asked a number of questions, presented in their own language through a video/audio interface. The person’s answers, together with the gathered physiological data, create a profile which is instantly analyzed by the system to determine whether further questioning is warranted.
The system, which comes in a variety of configurations, including mobile units, is based upon years of collected test data from multiple countries, and is uncannily accurate in spotting concealed motives. Although the technology is highly complex, the system itself is largely automated and surprisingly easy to operate. It does not require expert operators or results interpretation, making it easy to deploy. Suspect Detection Systems’ technology gives a boost to law enforcement agencies globally in their war against terrorism and organized crime.
