  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. 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 ...

  5. Automated Access Control Policy Testing System (A-ACPTS)

    SBC: Objectsecurity LLC            Topic: 90302

    A-ACPTS Phase 2 transitions NIST Access Control Policy Tool (ACPT) R&D with innovative enhancements into commercialization, developing a commercially successful access control policy testing product that improves access control policy testing (minimizes error potential, faster, more usable, more efficient). A-ACPTS Phase 2 extends ACPT through a number of innovations that improve testing beyond th ...

  6. Coastal Eyes, a Multi-Mission Topographic, Current Retrieval and Debris Mapping Sensor System

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 832

    NOAA seeks to characterize the impact of severe weather on coastal areas with a cost-effective, responsive multi-mission sensor system. In response Areté Associates proposes a conceptual design for an affordable, responsive, compact airborne sensor system called “Coastal Eyes” which will rapidly provide land and surface water topography, surface current, debris and storm surge mapping over wi ...

  7. SeaTag: Design and Manufacture of a Family of Modular Archival Tags

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 813

    The SeaTagTM project proceeds in Phase II to implement and test a family of micro observation stations that go beyond the concepts of traditional electronic data logging animal tags. These will include functions such as communication between SeaTagTM devices to obtain data from many animals when one tag is recovered or transmits. Deployment methods are extended to mounting on predators to monito ...

  8. Refining Broodstock, hatchery and weaning strategies: Key to the Commercial Culture of the Imperiled Giant Grouper

    SBC: Kona Blue Water Farms, LLC            Topic: 818

    Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. Phase I research marked the first time this species has been reared in the hatchery outside of Southeast Asia. Broodstock nutrition, spawning seasonality and lunar periodicity were defined. ...

  9. N/A

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This subtopic solicited Phase I R&D for an advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) system that would provide fast-scanning high resolution (3 scans/sec at 1cm-1 resolution), low noise, mid-infrared measurements for characterization of spray flames. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) demonstrated FT-IR emission/transmission (E/T) measurements from the NIST spray combustion faci ...
