The Intellectual Property Research & Development Department is the heart and soul of DSBE.  It is a research and development organization which is not expected to ever be profitable, for it is a core conviction of DSBE that good R & D is vital to long-term corporate profitability.

IP R&D is expected to be headquartered in East Palo Alto, California and Windhoek, Namibia.  The focus of its efforts will be on technologies to improve Namibia's ability to produce electricity, food, and fresh water.  Electrical production is to be by renewable sources, such as ocean tides, solar, and wind.  Food production technology commerce and development will focus on ocean and freshwater aquaculture, as well as underground and enclosed agriculture due to Namibia's aridity and daily extremes of temperature.  Fresh water is to be desalinated from seawater using distillation plants powered by those renewable energy sources and transported by vehicles and pipelines similarly powered.

The acquired and developed industrial processes are to be refined into marketable organizational commodities for resale to targeted national markets.  For example, desalinization technologies refined by DSBE Namibia would be marketed to nations in the Horn of Africa such as Eritrea, Somalia, Somaliland, Djibouti, and Kenya.  They would also be sold to the continent's southwest nations neighboring Namibia such as Angola and South Africa and up through the nations of the West Africa such as Ghana and Nigeria.


The IP R & D Department is currently focused on the following projects.
