  1. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  2. Ultra High Sensitivity SWIR Methane Imaging Camera

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 861

    Methane is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas, whose atmospheric concentration is currently over 1.7 ppm and is about 21 times more potent when compared to CO2. Thus, while the quantitative monitoring of methane levels is necessary, it is also critically important to directly identify the sources of the methane emissions, for example, in ice floes, leaks in pipelines, and also from drilling/f ...

  3. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Bell Aquaculture            Topic: 92

    Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources, specifically animal byproduct meals, and its potential significant impacts on marine fish production. Th ...

  4. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    Peregrine Power, LLC will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will be entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque ...

  5. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (<23 pF), and high bandwidth (>125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise ...

  6. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known.  Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use.&nbs ...

  7. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  8. Refining Culture Technology for Growing Spiny Lobsters, Panulirus argus, from Pueruli to Market in Puerto Rico

    SBC: Snapperfarm, Inc.            Topic: 841

    Spiny lobster, Panulirus argus, aquaculture on a global scale is a small fraction of the total annual wild harvest. The ability to advance the culture of spiny lobsters will reduce the stress on the natural stock while providing a highly desired product. The culture cycle is dependent on the collection of lobster pueruli from the wild, due to the difficulty in rearing the larvae through the year ...

  9. 3DR Superpressure Balloon for Development of In-Situ Environmental Sensors

    SBC: GSSL Inc            Topic: N/A

    In-situ measurement of meteorological, atmospheric chemistry, and oceanic parameters for regional models would aid greatly in the understanding of critical processes and provide the necessary data for national policy decisions on significant environmental issues. three Dimensional Reinforced (3DR) membranes have the ability to offer a dramatic reduction in the required envelope mass for balloons d ...

  10. 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 ...
