  1. Cost Competitive Wave Energy Without Moving Parts

    SBC: Oscilla Power, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Oscilla Power, Inc. (OPI) is developing a utility-scale wave energy harvester that is enabled by low cost and readily-available magnetostrictive alloys. T his device, which utilizes no moving parts, has the potential to deliver predictable quantities of electric power to coastal utilities, industrial users, and remote facilities at costs competitive with coal or gas. The Phase I project demonstra ...

  3. Natural Adjuvants to Enhance Efficacy of Viral Vaccines for Mariculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 812

    Marine aquaculture production now exceeds 20 million metric tons annually (FAO 2010) but viral diseases are still a major threat to the expansion of sustainable mariculture systems (National Marine Fisheries Service 2007). Pathogenic viruses continue to devastate many fish and shellfish operations every year (ICES Mariculture Committee 2004, Lightner 2011). To date, vaccines against aquatic anim ...

  5. Acoustic Gravel-Transport Sensor

    SBC: D & A Instrument Company            Topic: N/A

    Gravel streambeds and beaches provide spawning habitat for salmon and form barriers to coastal erosion. Understanding how gravel is transported through measurements is essential for monitoring the ecological and physical processes of gravel-bed systems and for calibrating sediment transport models. We propose Phase II research to develop: 1) impact-recording sensors that can be deployed by wading ...

  6. The Development of an Environmentally Compliant and Cost Effective On-Site Animal Manure Management Composting Technology

    SBC: ENGINEERED COMPOST SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Animal Manure Management is a major challenge to dairies and CAFO's with respect to efficient resource use, farm economics and environmental impacts. Composting is an established process for converting animal manure into other value-added products such as soil amendment and animal bedding material. However, current agricultural composting practices do not generally address increasingly stringent a ...

  8. "Intensive Commercial Rainbow Smelt Culture"

    SBC: HARMON BROOK FARM            Topic: N/A

    Commercial wild harvest of rainbow smelt populations is the principal source for supplying both the live bait and human consumption markets for this species. Unfortunately, populations of smelt have been in decline in the Northeast for decades and in 2004, NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service listed rainbow smelt as a species of concern in the Gulf of Maine. It is inevitable that commercial and ...

  9. Automated Connector & Guidance System for Linear Move Irrigation

    SBC: Hydrodog Irrigators Company            Topic: N/A

    Continuous linear-move irrigators are the superior means of overhead irrigation and are capable of irrigating rectangles and irregular shapes. Presently, no affordable and hassle-free automated apparatus exists to connect the linear traveling irrigator to the stationary mainline and existing guidance methods add significantly to cost and complexity. Consequently, few linears are sold. Most irrigat ...

  10. HIGH-SPEED LUMBER GRAIN ANGLE MEASUREMENTS FOR TENSILE STRENGTH ESTIMATION

    SBC: Metriguard Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MORE ACCURATE TENSIL STRENGTH ESTIMATION FOR STRUCTURAL LUM-BER COULD BE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE MSR (MACHINE STRESS RATING) SORTING PROCESS IN MODERN LUMBER MILLS. TODAY'S MSRMETHODS WHICH MAVE NOT CHANGED MUCH IN 25 YEARS HAVE PROVED THEMSELVES ECONOMICALLY SOUND THROUGHOUT MUCH OF N. AMERICA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD. EVERYONE IN THE CHAIN INCLUDING PRODUCER, STRUCTURAL COMPONENT MANUFACTURER, ...
