  1. Development of Microalgal-Based Vaccines for Fish

    SBC: PHYCOTRANSGENICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Phycotransgenics goal is to develop a vaccine delivery system using microalgae to reduce diseaseassociated costs for aquaculture. To accomplish this, we transformed Chlamydomonas, a single-cell algal species, with an antigen gene. Through our Phase 1 Program, we demonstrated that: 1) an antigen expressed in our algae can elicit an immune response in fish, and; 2) using our microalgal delivery syst ...

  2. Controlled Commercial Production of Cobia (Rachycentron canadum) Juveniles from Captured Wild Adults in Tanks and Ponds

    SBC: Southland Fisheries Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Larviculture of marine finfish to provide feed trained healthy seedstock is a major constraint to the merging marine aquaculture industry. Recent research (Phase 1) in the U.S. and some anecdotal information from Asian services have shown success in captive habituation, maturation and spawning wild adult cobia broodstocks and production of high quality eggs/larvae. Larviculture of cobia fry as sho ...

  3. Advanced Military Diesel Engine, High Temperature Tribology Phase II


    "In future advanced military diesel engine propulsion systems, the engine's tribological considerations have been limited by the temperature capability of the lubricating fluid. Thermal oxidation resulting in lubricant breakdown and formation of films anddeposits are typical causes of engine failure in the high operating conditions projected for Low Heat Rejection (LHR) type diesel engines. Work ...

  4. Fabrication of Affordable Aspheric Mirrors by Electroforming (FAAME)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    "Until recently, the cost of high performance electro-optical systems such as missile seekers has been dominated by the cost of the focal plane array. Recent developments are improving the affordability of arrays, with the result that the optical andopto-mechanical subsystems emerging as the cost drivers. We address this problem through the development of opto-mechanical systems built by precisi ...

  6. Dynamic MEMS Based Photonic Bandgap Filter


    "Advances in laser technology currently allow for the relative compact packaging of high power pulse lasers and moderate power continuous wave systems. These systems can be used as effective countermeasures against optical sensors. Military sensorssusceptible to this type of countermeasure are mounted on certain types of infrared guided missiles, aircraft systems for guidance and reconnaissance, ...

  7. Lifetime Filtration for Military Vehicles


    "Improving filtration technology for military vehicle engine lubrication systems remains a significant challenge. Equipment failures due to improper or excessive periodic maintenance contribute substantially to the overall cost of maintaining militaryfleets and create combat ineffectiveness during mission critical operations. Current systems have short filter life span and do not provide satisfa ...

  8. Modeling and Diagnostics of Gel Propellant Mixing and Combustion

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "In Phase I, CFDRC demonstrated a one-of-a-kind transient bipropellant spray combustion modeling capability for gel propulsion. A single element spray rig was fabricated and tested with inert gels to qualitatively characterize the gel spray pattern for thenumerical simulations. CCD photography and planar laser illumination (PLI) diagnostics techniques were demonstrated. A comprehensive plan for ...

  9. New Design Technologies for Radiation Hardened Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Radiation-hardening by design (RHBD) permits the use of available commercial fabrication lines of high performance circuits, but the radiation-hardened (rad-hard) devices and cells are usually associated with a larger area, higher-power consumption, andslower performance. CFDRC in collaboration with Mission Research Corp. (MRC) and Vanderbilt University will develop novel RHBD concepts at the tra ...

  10. Interstage Turbine Burner for High Performance, Fuel Efficient Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "The inter-stage turbine burner is an innovative and revolutionary concept for increased specific thrust and low emissions while maintaining or improving cycle efficiency through increased overall pressure ratio. Heat addition in the turbine burner betweenthe high pressure and low pressure turbine is a better approximation of the ideal Carnot cycle. Addition of fuel between turbine stages can sign ...
