Abstract:Papaya is a major fruit commodity in Hawaii with over 28 million pounds utilized in 2006. 26.6 million pounds of the harvested papaya are used for fresh utilization and 2.3 million pounds for processed utilization. Processed utilization is currently for aseptic puree produced by a single processor.… more
Abstract:Hawaii orchid growers, of which there are more than 70, face increasing competition from mega-nurseries in California and Florida as well as from producers in Taiwan, Thailand, and Holland. The business model among Hawaii growers tends to small, family operated concerns, by choice and tradition. A… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase II research targets innovative means for controlling ectoparasite pests in open ocean aquaculture. Offshore fish farming offers tremendous growth opportunities. Adaptive fish health management offshore remains a challenge for environmentally sound expansion of this potentially… more
Abstract:Increasing seafood production is important for the national economy, national health, and the environment. The U.S. Department of Commerceýýs goal is for a 5-fold increase in aquaculture production value, to $5 billion, by 2025. Open ocean aquaculture represents the best opportunity for meeting… more
Abstract:Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. Phase I research marked the first time this species has been reared in the hatchery outside… more
Abstract:Many youth growing up today in some of America's isolated, rural communities have few gainful employment opportunities in their home communities since many of these communities do not have diverse and strong local economies. The proposed Entrepreneurship from Education project seeks to address this… more
Abstract:OTEC is a clean, renewable energy resource capable of producing nationally-significant quantities of hydrogen in at-sea floating plants located in warm, tropical water. During phase I, Makai has developed an analytical model to technically balance and financially evaluate a large-scale OTEC-driven… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy has special requirements for recovery, maintenance and repair of seafloor cable systems. The Navy frequently makes repairs to cable systems damaged by seafloor hazards by dragging a grapnel hook near the vicinity of the break. The process of recovering the cable to make the repairs is… more
Abstract:In coordination with the SPAWAR SYSTEMS CENTER (SSC) located in San Diego, California, Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. proposes to use numerical modeling in order to evaluate the accuracy and precision of various proposed deployment methods for the installation of Deployable Autonomous Distributed… more
Abstract:It is proposed that a new "refueling mission package" capability be developed for the LCS ASW Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) to perform function of a refueling tanker for refueling other offboard systems (USVs or unmanned underwater vehicles) without restricting host ship operations. Utilizing the… more
Abstract:Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) will be a part of the Navy's future capabilities. Navatek has design, built and delievered two USV's to General Dynamics Robotics Systems (GDRS). The towing performance of these vehicles can be greatly improved with an Aft Lifting Body (ALB). The benefits of an ALB on… more
Abstract:Growing network centric warfare needs places ever-increasing demands on airborne platforms. Growing payloads of upgraded avionics, radars, and communications assets require that all WRAs subject to redesign for weight and/or volume savings are targets for replacement. Under a Phase II effort, NSS… more
Abstract:Current sense and avoid systems (S&A) using visible/infrared/RF sensor technology require SWAP (space, weight, and power) that far exceeds that available in mini-UAS. An aircraft of this size still represents a significant mid-air collision hazard to other aircraft operating in the same airspace. … more
Abstract:Oceanit proposes to develop a low cost, reliable, wireless mesh networking system that will enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency responders in hostile building environments. The heart of the system will use a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) wireless mesh networking IC… more
Abstract:With the denial of RF triggering through broad spectrum jamming, IR activated devices are becoming prevalent creating an urgent need for a device that can be used to block or jam IR signals used to detonate IEDs. No such device currently exists and as a consequence the lives of American troops are… more
Abstract:In some conditions, flow excited bioluminescence caused by a submersible, diver or Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) can be observed at the surface, compromising clandestine operations. This project describes a design for a compact, robust, low power device that will measure a bioluminescent… more
Abstract:Prodrug-based drug delivery systems have the promise to augment the efficacy of compounds with limited bioavailability to solid tumors. We propose a unique approach for a targeted prodrug delivery system. The system has the potential to deliver other therapeutic agents as well. We propose to explore… more
Abstract:This effort will be to develop an electronic attack prototype system, including a scaled target which would simulate the electro-optical signature of a threat missile and include a monopulse antenna and receiver. A test plan and measures of effectiveness will be developed. Testing and evaluation of… more
Abstract:The recent advance in radar technologies utilizing high speed digital signal processing enabled the self-calibrating AMC jammer as an onboard selfprotection jammer for large standoff jamming and surveillance platforms. The use of noncoherent, cooperative dual-platform AMC jammers allows two separate… more
Abstract:In Hawaii and across the US, mandates for biofuels have increased the production of biodiesel, throughout many of our rural communities. Hawaii's Jatropha biodiesel production will produce 6,000 pounds of agricultural waste - consisting of seedcake, fruit hulls and glycerine - for every 250 gallons… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over half of the world population is at risk for infection by dengue virus, a mosquito borne member of the Flavivirus family that consists of four distinct serotypes. Approximately 50 to 100 million infections occur ann
ually resulting in an estimated 500,000… more
Abstract:The Deployable Interactive Virtual Environment Sniper Trainer (DIVEST) is a innovative use of existing technologies in a novel application. Sniper training requires the ability of the trainee to exercise observations skills (reconnaissance), marksmanship skills, and as a fighting team - sniper and… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
