  1. Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feed

    SBC: ABN            Topic: 841

    If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted at maximum sustainable levels of harvest, but also there is increasing concern that these feedstocks ...

  2. Construction and Testing of a Spar Feeding System for an Offshore Aquaculture Farm

    SBC: Cates International, Inc.            Topic: 845

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to add telemetry and monitoring equipment to the spar designed and constructed under our Phase I contract. Furthermore, we propose to test and evaluate an automated spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. C Cates International, Inc. has developed a feeding system for it¿s underwater cages that functions from a small boat. But ...

  3. Heads-up Vessel Navigation using Raster/Vector Data

    SBC: GMA INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: 851

    This project entails a comprehensive approach to developing an innovative solution to heads-up display navigation for marine vessels that addresses the required hardware, the sources of raster and vector navigation and marine charting data, and the means to convey these data to watch standers on the bridge in a manner that enhances their performance. During Phase I we identify specific heads-up d ...

  4. A Prototype Fish Metrology System for Open-Ocean Aquaculture

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 845

    Open-ocean aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several refinements this technology must undergo in order to maximize productivity. One of the specific areas of refinement is in gathering detailed statistical knowledge of the captive fish stock population as a function of time. This knowledge will allow optimization of feed rates. Optimized feed rates will mini ...

  5. Monitor for Risk of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Sekos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposal is to develop a system to monitor fire-induced structural vibrations that provide real time data correlating with structural integrity. The system is designed to bridge an "information void" and provide firefighters with information that can warn of impending collapse. The system, based on accelerometer technology, will monitor structural integrity through the algorithmic analysis of ...

  6. Novel Technical Approach to Produce III-N Sample Libraries


    TDI proposes to produce combinatorial GaN and AlGaN samples library having a wide range of doping and fabricated using a variety of surface treatment conditions. These samples will be grown using novel technological approach based on advanced hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE). This method is known to produce bulk GaN materials with low defect density. Recently, TDI has demonstrated high throughpu ...

  7. Advanced High Temperature Dielectric Material

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: BMDO00014

    Active Signal Technologies and Alfred University have brought together a broad-based industrial consortium to rapidly advance the development and commercialization of bismuth sodium titanate (BNT), a novel high performance capacitor material for use in both high-temperature and high-field applications. While the dielectric properties of our Phase I BNT show great promise, this is a new-comer to t ...

  9. High Performance Point Source LEDs

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: MDA04030

    Long standing relationships with the Ioffe Institute have allowed ATEC to license novel LED technologies developed by Matveev and co-workers, including InGaAs LEDs that emit in the 3 to 5 um region and Negative Luminescence devices that are capable of simulating objects at temperatures below ambient. The goal of the proposed work is to adapt a high efficiency optically pumped GaAs LED stucture d ...

  10. Corrosion Protection using Appliqués with Embedded Corrosion Sensors

    SBC: DACCO SCI, INC.            Topic: MDA02034

    The MDA must maintain high-value missile defense test and evaluation facilities, equipment, and components in several remote locations with very aggressive environments (such as Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands). Corrosion protection is a critical issue for reliability and performance; however, maintenance of that protection is difficult given the remoteness and corrosivity of the sites. In the ...
