  1. Improved Giant Grouper Hatchery Methods Open Opportunities for Open ocean Aquaculture and Fishery Enhancement

    SBC: Kona Blue Water Farms, LLC            Topic: 818

    Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. This species has also been heavily overfished throughout its range. Hatcheries could supplement commercial and recreational fisheries through stock enhancement, and also aid grouper fishery ...

  2. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize ...

  3. Wireless Magnetic Workzone System

    SBC: VehicleSense Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase II we will develop a work zone collision system consisting of "smart barrels" and a central communications computer. The "smart barrels" will incorporate magnetic sensors, an LED display and wireless communications resulting in a unit that can accurately measure the speed of passing vehicles and relay this information to adjacent barrels and the central communications computer. The ...

  4. Early Detection of Spoilage in Stored Grain

    SBC: BinTech, LLLP            Topic: N/A

    Millions of dollars are lost worldwide due to insect and fungi caused spoilage in stored grain. We propose to develop new technology for early detection that takes advantage of the fact that small amounts of spoilage cause significant increases in CO2 concentration throughout the grain mass and storage structure. The new sensor will be designed for placement in stored grain structures to continuou ...

  5. An Integrated Membrane-based Process Train for Reducing Costs of Ethanol Production

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of ethanol derived from starch crops and biomass is forecast to grow considerably in the next decade. There exist opportunities for significant reductions in ethanol production costs and associated energy usage via employment of innovative process operations. Many of these processes involve membranes, which provide cost savings due primarily to reduced energy consumption. Recently, new ...

  6. Fouling-Resistant Inorganic MF Membrane for Improved Food and Beverage Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened, especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites. Varroa destructor, in particular, is lethal to many colonies, decimating both feral and managed honey ...

  7. Ammonia Point Sensor for Intensive Livestock Operations

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II program will produce a sensitive, reliable and cost-effective monitor for ammonia emissions in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). CAFOs have become a major form of animal production. There is increased concern over emissions from confinements houses and health effects on workers and animals. The CAFO industry needs reliable monitoring solutions to support manure management a ...

  8. Establishing a New (Cacao) Orchard Industry for Hawaii

    SBC: Great Pacific Chocolate Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cacao trees grow and produce well in Hawaii but high costs and low international prices for beans would make it unprofitable if farmers had to sell at these prices. By establishing a small-scale chocolat d origin gourmet chocolate factory in Kona that produces a high-value product for a limited target market, we can pay prices for cocoa beans that are well above international market value - prices ...

  9. Development of acoustic cavitation based affordable milk processing technology for small rural dairy farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Milk supply by the small dairy farms to the local markets not only reduces transportation costs but also provides cultural and economic benefits to the communities. However, the majority of the milk processing operations are carried out in large plants at the wholesale level. Such capacities and the large capital requirement act as a barrier to entry for small farmers and prohibit them to get a b ...

  10. Development of a Novel Cold-tolerant, Disease-resistant Shrimp by Intraspecific Hybridization

    SBC: Kona Bay Marine Resources            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop a new line of cold-tolerant, disease-resistant shrimp which will provide distinct commercial advantages to shrimp farmers in non-tropical climates, such as the United States, where colder water temperatures and pathogens restrict shrimp production. Successful development of this novel shrimp line will allow U.S. shrimp farmers to significantly increase pro ...
