  1. Offshore Semi-autonomous Fish Feeding System

    SBC: Net Systems, Inc.            Topic: 845

    As fish farmers attempt to increase capacity they are being forced to move to more Exposed growing sites. The technology for rearing fish in this high-energy environment is dependent on robust fish pens and infrastructure to support them. One very important technology that must be developed is an automated feeding system capable of operating in this difficult environment. Based on the results of ...

  2. A New Generation of Anti-Viral Vaccines for Aquaculture Using Nanotechnology

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 846

    Although companies based outside the U.S. have tested and, in some cases, sold basic anti-viral vaccines to aquaculture producers, practicing veterinarians and virologists have been unimpressed by their extremely limited effectiveness (J. Mullins, pers. comm. 2002; J. Winton, pers. comm. 2004). The consensus is that new approaches are urgently needed to develop viral vaccines that do not rely on ...

  3. A Low-cost, Single or Multi-point Oxygen Concentration Measurement Technique

    SBC: Research International, Inc            Topic: 821

    Aquatic environments are poorly understood and this lack of understanding needs to change as population pressures affect all aqueous biomes, particularly those of the oceans. A major difficulty in gathering data from the oceans is the lack of appropriate instrumentation. The principals of Research International have been developing sensors for physical, chemical and biological analysis for some ...

  4. Aerosol Concentrator Employing Micro-Machined Aerodynamic Lenses

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project will develop a novel aerosol concentrator based on aerodynamic lens technology capable of achieving very high concentration factors in a compact device. This device will be fabricated in silicon using micro-fabrication methods resulting in low cost, compact size, high reliability, high throughput, and extremely high precision and repeatability. In this project we will develop ...

  5. Low Cost Electrostatic Cyclone for Aerosol Collection and Concentration

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    InnovaTek proposes to develop an advanced, low cost aerosol collector/concentrator that utilizes electrostatic precipitation and cyclonic impingement with a virtual impactor pre-concentrator that will have >90% collection efficiency while operating at 1000 LPM using less than 50 watts of power. Technology will be designed on the basis of first principles and computational fluid dynamics modeling. ...

  6. Large Scale Neutralization and Safe Removal of Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: Isotron Corporation            Topic: HSB042004

    This proposal addresses the development of an advanced polymer-based system which possesses a reactive feature that serves to neutralize chemical agents and toxic industrial chemicals in-situ and on contact. The polymer system is designed to facilitate a rapid return-to-service of the contaminated area, such that emergency, rescue and other first response activities can take place safely during th ...

  7. Advanced Bioaerosol Samplers for Surveillance and Personal Monitoring

    SBC: MesoSystems Technology, Inc.            Topic: HSB041003

    Many integrated biodetection systems require an aqueous sample, with the notable exception being those based on mass spectrometry which frequently uses a dry sample (MALDI or pyrolysis). The two proposed air sampling technologies to be developed are amenable to dry or nearly dry sample collection, but yet both can deliver a final sample in an aqueous format autonomously. Furthermore, both offer si ...

  8. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...

  9. High Efficiency, Dual-Mode Air Sampler

    SBC: Research International, Inc            Topic: HSB041003

    A compact, low power and low cost air sampler is proposed that utilizes a novel topology and two-stage design to concentrate respirable particulates. The proposed hardware and collection strategy minimizes problems associated with freezing conditions and provides a high air-to-liquid concentration ratio.

  10. A novel method to produce very low cost Class B Basic AIS transponders

    SBC: Shine Micro, Inc.            Topic: HSB041006

    A novel method is presented to produce very low cost Basic B AIS transponders. The result will be a very small, minimal cost product with a maximum of functionsality that can be easily installed in a few minutes. Because of its very low power consumption, it is also suitable for handheld, portable and solar powered use.
