  1. Development of the Low-Altitude Maritime Survey-Sampling (LAMASS) System

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 828

    In this Phase I effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations, in collaboration with Aerovel, Inc., proposes to assess the feasibility of developing a multi-mission, transdisciplinary manned aerial platform, capable of fulfilling NOAA’s requirement to survey, map and collect on our nation’s natural ecosystems. Combining Aerovel’s experience in UAS development with PEMDAS’ atmospheric sensor ...

  2. Mariner Report Application (MARApp): Crowdsourcing Maritime Weather Conditions

    SBC: Liteweaver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 826

    Metron proposes a software framework for crowd-sourcing weather observations in a maritime environment leveraging personal mobile devices. Our proposed App, the Mariner’s Report App (MARApp), draws data from existing sensors in modern smartphones and tablets, as well as meteorological sensors normally found on small marine vessels. Our architecture is modular, extensible, and readily adaptable t ...

  3. Design of an Autonomous, Green Powered, Mobile Coastal Monitor

    SBC: Tridentis, LLC            Topic: 821

    The mobile coastal monitor project is designed to research the state-of-the-art green power supplies and apply them as the propulsion and sensor power source for a highly efficient surface platform. The platform will be equipped with a modular sensor bay that is capable of housing a wide variety of atmospheric, air/sea interface, and sub-surface sensors suitable for a wide range of sensing operati ...

  4. Smart System for Poultry Welfare and Management

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: 83

    In recent years, consumer's concerns over hen well-being in conventional small wire cages (called battery cages) has resulted in some of the poultry farms to switch to cage-free housing where hens have freedom to walk around spread their wings, and lay their eggs in real nest boxes. This push towards cage-free egg production was further magnified in 2015 when many of the large fast food, resta ...

  5. Enhanced Membranes for Dewatering of Black Liquor

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 81

    Compact Membrane Systems (CMS) proposes to employ membrane systems for pressure-driven separation of water from black liquor to replace the first two stages of existing multiple-effect evaporators. This is a promising approach to considerably reduce the steam energy required for concentration. Membrane materials must withstand high temperature, high salinity and high pH conditions. Fouling of the ...

  6. Variable speed operation in hydroelectric

    SBC: BURNSHIRE HYDROELECTRIC, L.L.C.            Topic: 86

    Hydropower is now increasingly operated outside of original design conditions due to changing water availability and environmental induced operating parameters. Fifty percent of operational hydroelectric dams in the United States are 50 years or older and nearly all were designed to operate steadily as a primary base load resource. Compounding these issues is the increasing prevalence of intermitt ...

  7. Cobia Production Using Novel Low Salinity RAS Technology

    SBC: VIRGINIA COBIA FARMS            Topic: N/A

    This application describes the Phase I commercialization by Virginia Cobia Farms (VCF) of a combination of unique technologies including proprietary technology involving molecular salinity nutrient sensors in fish, use of intensive land based recirculation systems (RAS), novel dietary fish feed formulations as well as commercial production scale application of ARS scientists focused on development ...

  9. Multiple Foodborne Pathogen Resequencing Microarray-based Diagnostic Assay

    SBC: TESSARAE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Most contemporary diagnostic tests are designed to detect and identify a single particular pathogen if it may be present in a given specimen. Furthermore such assays typically rely upon a short biomarker, or short signature gene sequence element to INDIRECTLY determine if the specimen is or is not present in the specimen. Such assays are inevitably vulnerable to false negative or false positive re ...

  10. Development of co-immobilized enzyme pellets to replace GMOs for cellulosic ethanol

    SBC: SuGanit Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Economic bioethanol production is critically dependent upon the ability to convert both the hexose (C6) and pentose (C5) sugars resulting from cellulose and hemicellulose components of biomass. C5 sugars are not readily fermentable by native organisms. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are designed to ferment xylose, but their stability, ethanol yield, environmental impact, and survival under ...
