  1. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  3. Slow Release Non-Toxic Antifouling Additives for Coatings Used in Aquaculture

    SBC: LIG SCIENCES , INC            Topic: 87

    The US aquaculture industry, which is around a $2B per year business consisting of 6,343 businesses that employ 15,198 people is greatly in need of a non-toxic and long-lasting antifouling coating. Biofouling is the undesirable accumulation of microorganisms, plants, and animals on man-made surfaces. This biofouling is extremely detrimental to the outdoor marine aquaculture industry. For the netti ...

  8. On-board Electrochemical Oxygen Generator for Live Shipments of Wild Seafood and Aquaculture Products

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 87

    U.S. live fish exports are growing and have further potential for growth. In 2009 live fish U.S. exports were on the order of $44 million. In 2012, there was unique opportunity in the live eel export market and there were reports of $100-150 million in exports in that species alone. The overall goal of this project is to provide active oxygenation during the transportation of live aquaculture prod ...

  9. Superior Nutrient Availability, Reduced Metabolic Waste and Increased Energy Efficiency in Aquafeeds


    In November 2011 the worlds human population reached 7 billion. Concurrent role shifts in world economies (e.g., competition for seafood products with China) make it necessary for aquaculture to grow at a pace much faster than previously estimated. In addition, the American seafood trade deficit now exceeds $10 billion per year. Clearly, we are at a point when new technologies are desperately need ...

  10. Development of Immunoreagents and Test Kits for the Detection of E. coli non-O157 STEC

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: 85

    E. coli are common bacteria and part of the normal flora of the GI tract. Some strains, including the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) are able to produce a toxin (Shiga toxin), which can lead to serious human illnesses from mild diarrhea to life threatening conditions, such as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). A report from the CDC shows that non-O157 STEC infections are more common than illne ...
