  1. A Vibrationally-enhanced Aquaculture Treatment System (VEATS) for Water Reuse and Effluent Management

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 842

    Because of the severe impact of diseases on production and the environmental devastation created by many commercial aquaculture effluents, modern methods of intensive aquaculture are evolving which rely heavily on recirculating the water. This proposal addresses the need for a modular, integrated technology in closed-loop aquaculture operations by enhancing the performance of a fluidized ion exch ...

  2. Fluorescence Imager for Rapid Estimates of the Distribution and Abundance of Coral Recruits

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 831

    New methods are needed to help marine scientists conduct studies of the processes limiting or promoting coral recruitment and survivorship. The small size and low visual contrast of coral recruits in natural settings make them difficult to impossible to locate efficiently. Many coral recruits contain strongly fluorescent pigments, and viewed in the proper way this fluorescence dramatically incre ...

  3. Inexpensive Submersible Long-Term Dissolved Oxygen Recorder

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase II SBIR Project to complete the development of an inexpensive compact optical system for continuous dissolved oxygen monitoring in areas at risk of eutrophication induced by hypoxia and anoxia. The proposed monitor will facilitate the development of improved theoretical models by enabling better data collection with regard to spread and degree of oxyge ...

  4. An Innovative Low-Cost Dropsonde using Integrated Flexible Circuit Design

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 819

    Upper atmospheric measurements of temperature, humidity, pressure and winds are required daily at hundreds of locations around the world to drive numerical weather prediction forecast models. In the US these critical measurements are made by Radiosondes carried aloft by balloons filled with helium and tracked by 104 NWS ground stations. However, data-sparse regions off the west coast can only be a ...

  5. High Speed Low Loss Optical Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High performance fiberoptic switch is an enable technology for new generation optical telecommunication and fully secured quantum communication/cryptography applications. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and high reliability. Based on the successful development/production of a variety of industrial leading solid ...

  6. The Manufacturing of Large Soft X-ray Flourescence Detectors

    SBC: Detector Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    At present the need for a large area, 100 square centimeters or greater, soft x-ray fluorescence detector with high detection efficiency is required for material science and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. The current methods of detection used in x-ray absorption spectroscopy are subject to poor collection efficiency, large background and vacuum risk. It is the task of this grant to develop a multi ...

  7. Next Generation Cryogen-free ADR Cryostat

    SBC: Janis Research Co.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop the next generation cryogen-free Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (ADR) system. It is a two stage ADR system that employs a self-shielded conductively cooled superconducting magnet and non-filamentary support for the paramagnetic pills. This is an improved version from Janis current cryogen-free ADR system product line, and the new system will be more user-friendly and ...

  10. A Multi-Tracker Navigation System for Firefighters

    SBC: Summit Safety, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A lightweight, low-cost system for each firefighter to detect the location and direction of other nearby firefighters will be provided. A heads-up display will allow hands-free operation. The system will be integrated with the Personnel Ultrasonic Locating and Safety Equipment, or PULSE, developed by Summit Safety. This system uses ultrasound -- sound waves above the normal hearing range -- to ena ...
