  1. Sea Tag-SP: A family of acoustic enabled satellite tags for spawning detection and more

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Phase-1 demonstrated the powerful and unusual remote sensing opportunities available by adding acoustic signal detection to pop-up satellite tags (PSAT). The time and location of spawning define the starting point in the life history of fish. Yet this event, which is of critical importance to fishery researchers and managers seeking to gain an understanding of distinct reproductive populations and ...

  5. Renewable Bioplastics Production

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Current petroleum-derived-plastics contain additives such as phthalates or bisphenolA that are harmful to human health and the environment. Thus, it’s critical to replace such toxic non-biodegradable plastics with biodegradable bioplastics. To meet bioplastics production need, Altex, and Texas A&M University (TAMU) have teamed up to utilize renewable biomass, such as forest residue, agricultural ...

  6. PFAS Analyzer- A fieldable device for the broad-spectrum analysis of PFAS in water, soil, and sediments

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are used in food packaging, as coatings for cloth (e.g. Scotchgard), firefighting foams, electronics, and industrial and automotive components. Being perfluorinated species, they are engineered to breakdown slowly (half-life >92 years in water), and thus persist for very long times. Their high water-solubility makes them especially dangerous, and much like perchlo ...
