  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. 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 ...

  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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Simplified Sound Propagation Tool

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 819

    In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the role of man-made sound on the marine environment.  For this effort, we propose developing an intuitive software interface for sound propagation modeling.  This will be based on software developed at HLS Research, Inc. for similar applications.  The software will use existing propagation modeling codes that have a long hist ...

  8. High Fidelity, Low Power, Omnidirecddtional Hydrophone

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    There is a need to advance the state of the art low power, portable autonomous underwater hydrophones for recording fish spawning calls and other marine acoustics.  Affordable and reliable autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) mountable hydrophones that can detect such signals in the presence of AUV motor noise are required.  A system that includes software to automatically determine fish ...

  9. Frequency Stable Optically Pumped Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N/A

    Technology research and development in such areas as next-generation atomic clocks, quantum information processing with trapped ions, and atomic spectroscopy is impeded by the lack of commercially available laser sources that meet the required specifications of wavelength tuning range, output power, frequency-stability and reliability. Arete Associates is developing frequency-stable Optically Pump ...

  10. AC Amplifier and System for Nanopore Based DNA Sequencing

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The characterization of biologically relevant polymetric materials is a major focus of the bioinstrumentation industry. Of particular interest is the rapid, direct sequencing of DNA through a nanopore as well as the characterization of other biopolymers. Although progress has been made with nanopore sequencing, some fundamental instrumental and system issues have so far kept the method from realiz ...
