  1. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurement in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    The topic (8.2.2R) requires the capability for enabling high sensitive/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. The proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of large backgrounds calcium concentration. The sensor approach will use the benefi ...

  2. Compact and Portable Hyperlite Multi-Occupant Hyperbaric Chamber

    SBC: PCCI, Inc.            Topic: 813NR

    In Phase II, the PCCI Team will conduct the research and development required to extend the design of the multi-occupant, flexible, hyperbaric chamber to withstand an internal pressure of 165 feet of sea water (fsw), up from the 70 fsw design goal of the Phase I SBIR. This increased pressure rating will both benefit the NOAA Diving Program, by allowing treatment of divers to U.S. Navy Table 6A ap ...

  3. A Single Aperture Dual-Wavelength Dual-Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and the world economy. From an average of $10B annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry, which is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now casting and forecasting could prevent the ...

  5. Novel Vaccines For Johne's Disease

    SBC: Pan Genome Systems, Inc            Topic: 83

    Our company has several vaccine candidates that could help in protecting animals from Johne's disease. In this phase of the project, we will test the performance of these vaccines in mice. Once proven protective, we will be able to run more tests on a ruminant model of infection that pave the way for field testing of these vaccine in dairy farms.

  6. LED lighting for maximizing quality parameters in specialty crop production

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: 85

    Convincing scientific evidence has associated dietary choices with chronic disease expression. Dietary guidelines now in place are designed to prevent the onset of such chronic diseases as tissue-specific cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and osteoporosis. The cornerstone of recommended dietary guidelines is increased consumption of fruits and vegetables. Current USDA dietary guidelines recommend ...

  7. Spawning, fry production and hybridization technologies for producing walleye for foodfish and stocking

    SBC: DAND FISH FARM            Topic: 87

    Walleye are a highly valued foodfish and sportfish in the North Central region of the US. The overall goal of our project is to test the feasibility of combining selected new technologies for the commercial production of walleye for food fish and for advanced fingerlings for stocking. For foodfish production, we propose to determine the feasibility of using hybridization together with intensive, i ...

  8. Production of high protein distillersâ dried grains with solubles (HP-DDGS) to replace fish meal in aquaculture diets.

    SBC: DAST            Topic: 87

    In 2007, wild captured fish accounted for about 15.7% of the animal protein consumed by humans on a global basis, and per capita consumption of fish and shellfish products is increasing, parallel with the global human population. Unfortunately, harvest rates of wild fish have decreased by ~0.7 mmt per year over the past 20 years, and the FAO recently reported that 53% of the world's wild fish ...

  9. Comparison of agricultural marketing success across multiple platforms

    SBC: Hevva LLC            Topic: 812

    Each week, in total, 338 small and mid-sized farms ($1,000-500,000 in revenue) go out of business despite the undeniable demand for local food. This proposal will work with a state department of agriculture to research the viability of real-time price sheet marketing, as compared to static information, utilizing the various mediums of print, web, and mobile applications to determine the most effec ...

  10. Novel Air Processor for the Removal of Ammonia Gas From CAFO Air Streams

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 84

    In this proposal, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) outlines the development of a system for remediating ammonia (NH3) produced in large confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). The animal agricultural industry is coming under increased scrutiny due to the large volume of pollutants, in particular ammonia, produced in its operations. PSI's proposed remediation system for NH3 utilizes an adsorbe ...
