  1. Concurrent Clarification and Biological Nitrification/Denitrification in a Single Floating Bead Bioclarifier to Simplify Nitrogen Management in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: 816

    Commercial-scale marine aquaculture has the potential to balance the increasing demand for high-quality seafood products with the harvest capacity of our nation¿s oceans. However, water reuse in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is limited by the accumulation of nitrate (NO3), which is toxic to many species in high concentrations. Therefore, NO3 removal by denitrification presents a press ...

  2. A Submersible Video Recorder for Marine Biological Surveys

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 8113

    We propose research to develop and demonstrate a deeply submersible video plankton recording system (ViPR) to perform image recording of plankton. The ViPR will apply artificial intelligence to 2-D or 3-D imaging using pattern recognition for a statistically reliable survey of plankton using two cameras, one for larger zooplankton and the other for microplankton. The ViPR computer will be PC compl ...

  3. Low-Cost Wave Data Buoys for Offshore Monitoring

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 837

    Ocean waves are well-known to be the most hazardous of ocean environmental conditions affecting vessel operations. The vast majority of incidents responded to by the U.S. Coast Guard, injuries and fatalities, and damage to or sinking of vessels (particularly small craft) are wave-related. Recognizing the considerable spatial and temporal variability of waves in coastal areas, research will desig ...

  4. Low-Cost Microcalorimeter Spectrometer for X-Ray Macroanalysis

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    A low-cost superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter spectrometer is described for high energy and high spatial resolution X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and microanalysis. The proposed microcalorimeter instrument offers an energy resolution that is comparable to and potentially even better than wavelength dispersive spectrometers, thereby enabling the resolution of inter ...

  5. GPS-Tracked Buoy for Hydrographic Survey Applications

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A long standing problem in oceanography and hydrography is accurate real-time measurement of offshore water levels. The Phase 1 research involved investigating a wide range of recent techniques and technologies, and performing analyses and trade-off studies to evaluate, select, and integrate them into a GPS-tracked buoy system (buoy, shore reference station for differential GPS, and repeater stati ...

  7. Antimonide Laser Spectrometer for measuring the flux of ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR research project will investigate the feasibility of an ammonia sensor based on an antimonide laser and an advanced, low noise modulation spectroscopy method. The rapid response and high sensitivity will allow the use of the eddy correlation method to provide continuous measurement of ammonia flux. Minor adjustments to the laser operating point will allow the instrument to measur ...

  8. Oxygen Sensor in Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to perform in-situ measurements of oxygen concentration in fire environments at a fast rate (better than 1 sec ) is not fulfilled by available sensor systems in the marketplace. Current systems involve extraction of gas samples with the required removal of water, particulate, and interfering chemical species, which can take several seconds to complete, prior to passing the samples to a ...

    SBC: Pathway Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Based on the outline for a theory of intelligence, and using NIST's hierarchical real-time control system (RCS) architecture, in Phase I, we developed proof-of-concept OpenSim and OpenAnimation toolboxes consisting of the following innovations, namely, (i) Simulation and Animation Software Design that will seamlessly interface with RCS Hierarchy, (ii) Knowledge hierarchy consistent with the f ...
