  1. Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feeds

    SBC: ABN            Topic: N/A

    If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted at maximum sustainable levels of harvest, but also there is increasing concern that these feedstocks ...

  2. Head-up Vessel Navigation Using Raster/Vector Data

    SBC: GMA INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: 851

    This project entails a comprehensive approach to developing an innovative solution to heads-up display navigation for marine vessels that addresses the required hardware, the sources of raster and vector navigation and marine charting data, and the means to convey these data to watch standers on the bridge in a manner that enhances their performance. During Phase I we identify specific heads-up d ...

  3. Detectors with Integrated Filters for Solar VUV Observations

    SBC: International Radiation Detectors, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Fabrication of stable, nearly 100% internal carrier collection efficiency silicon photodiodes (AXUV diodes) for 1 nm to 600 nm photons was successfully demonstrated by us several years ago. Owing to their excellent characteristics, these devices are being used by NIST as transfer standards in 5 nm to 250 nm range and aboard SOHO, SNOE and TIMED instruments for the EUV solar spectrum studies. Alt ...

  4. An Innovative Raster-Mirror Optical Detection System for CCD Camera Bistatic Lidar

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 812

    An innovative optical system with 500X higher ¿tendu and spatial resolution will be designed for CCD-based bistatic lidar. A 100¿ vertical field of view is required to image the laser beam from the ground through the boundary layer, but only a few degrees are required in the horizontal direction. The proposed design is based on dividing the vertical field of view into N sectors, using 1D rasteri ...

  5. A Prototype Fish Metrology System for Open Ocean Aquaculture

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 845

    Open-ocean aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several refinements this technology must undergo in order to maximize productivity. One of the specific areas of refinement is in gathering detailed statistical knowledge of the captive fish stock population as a function of time. This knowledge will allow optimization of feed rates. Optimized feed rates will mini ...

  6. An Autonomous Gas Chromatograph for Measurement of Greenhouse Gases in Airborne Applications

    SBC: Sonoma Technology, Inc.            Topic: 815

    An automated, high precision, lightweight gas chromatograph, capable of measuring hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) with a fast duty cycle (1 sample per two minutes) will be designed and built. The detector used for the chromatograph will be an electron capture detector with sensitivity enhanced by addition of nitrous oxide (N2O) reagent gas. The instrum ...

  7. Software to calculate occupant forces in real world crashes

    SBC: Dynamic Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for economical, high capacity softwre to aid medical and engineering researchers to more easily and consistently calculate forces acting on vehicle occupants during real-world crashes. One example of such research is NHTSA's Crash Injury research and Engineering Network (CIREN), which in adition to collecting injury and vehicle information, has increasing access to data from Event D ...

  8. A Reverse Venturi Atomization Chamber

    SBC: ARENA PESTICIDE MANAGEMENT            Topic: N/A

    Spray drift is one of the most significant issues presently facing agricultural applicators. Agricultural applicators are committed to the management of chemical drift and take responsibility on a daily basis for making good decisions in the field. Material that drifts off-site is material that is not applied to the target crop or pest and represents both wasted time and wasted material. This equa ...

  9. Development of Large-Scale Sperm Cryopreservation Techniques for Striped Bass Aquaculture

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Hybrid striped bass (HSB) aquaculture has become the fourth largest form of U.S. finfish production, trailing only catfish, trout, and salmon in market value. To compete effectively with low-cost foreign imports, U.S. HSB producers need to develop advanced strains that grow more rapidly and convert feed more efficiently. However, HSB are produced from two parental species (white bass and striped b ...

  10. High Value Products from Molokai Seaweed: A New Enterprise for Coastal Hawaiians

    SBC: Lohea Audio            Topic: N/A

    The project is to expand a small business in Molokai, a rural community in Hawaii, to develop products based on one of the island's most under utilized resources, seaweeds. Seaweeds are marketed as fresh sea-vegetables in local markets. However, these markets are limited; and this proposal includes the development and marketing of new, seaweed-based products The focus is on the production products ...
