  1. Tuning Germanium Reflectivity and Mosaic

    SBC: AdSem, Inc.            Topic: 90108

    Mosaic crystalline monochromators define performance of neutron scattering devices employed in condensed matter research on research nuclear reactors. This project is devoted to development of a manufacturing technique for slow neutron Germanium mosaic monochromators with reflectivity exceeding reflectivity of pyrolytic graphite crystals. Germanium has small slow neutron absorption; its diamond cr ...

  2. Development of Genetics-based Selective Breeding Protocols for Improvement of the Mediterranean Mussel, Mytilus galloprovincialis, and Advancement of Aquaculture

    SBC: Catalina Sea Ranch            Topic: 811

    The aquaculture industry lags in genetically based selective breeding programs when compared to terrestrial commercial crops. This aggravates the United States’ (U.S.) $11 billion dollar seafood deficit, puts U.S. aquaculture entrepreneurs at an early disadvantage for success, and increases risk of bivalve crop degradation from climate change. Heterosis in bivalve crops, the phenomenon in which ...

  3. Developing Resilience to Ocean Acidification in Red Abalone Aquaculture

    SBC: Cultured Abalone Farm LLC, The            Topic: 811

    The pH of the global ocean is becoming more acidic as a consequence of oceanic absorption of increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations. This process, termed “ocean acidification” (OA), will likely affect the aquaculture of marine shellfish. Maintaining current levels of commercial mollusc production will require the identification and commercialization of resilient seedstock. Through Phase I r ...

  4. The Trident Array: A Stable, Towed, Tetrahedral Hydrophone Array

    SBC: Proteus Technologies, LLC            Topic: 821

    Detecting the presence of marine mammals in paramount in lessening man’s impact on the environment as we search the oceans for natural resources. Many human ocean activities use high powered acoustic sources that can disturb, disrupt, maim or kill marine animals. The ability to detect, identify and locate marine mammals is critical during these operations to mitigate harm. Passive acoustics is a ...

  5. Rapid Lateral Flow Assay for Field Detection of Brevetoxins

    SBC: Epicentre Technologies Corporation            Topic: 812

    The bloom-forming algae Karenia brevis produces neurotoxins known as brevetoxins (PbTx) that can cause illness in humans and marine wildlife. During K. brevis blooms, also known as red tides, elevated levels of brevetoxins have been linked to massive bird, fish, and marine mammal kills. In addition, human consumption of brevetoxin contaminated shellfish leads to neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The ...

    SBC: BASHPOLE SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: SB091003

    When enemies gain human and financial resources, U.S. warfighters and peacekeepers become exposed to greatly increased danger when performing the Stability And Reconstruction Operations (SARO) that aim to reduce or prevent future attacks.A major source of income and human power is the existence of worldwide human trafficking networks. We have conceptualized an automated process for targeting-opera ...
