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

    SBC: ABN            Topic: N/A

    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. Natural and Sustainable Alternatives for Fish Meal/Oil Usage in Atlantic Salmon Feeds

    SBC: ABN            Topic: 8110

    The aquaculture industry currently consumes 70 percent of the global production of fish oil and 35 percent of total fishmeal. The salmon and trout fish farming sectors alone consume over one half of the world¿s fish oil. And if fish farming continues to grow at the current rate, then by 2010 the aquaculture industry could well be using all of the world¿s fish oil and half of its fishmeal. The ...

  3. Components For High Power, Low-Noise, Wide Bandwidth RF Amplifiers

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: MDA04138

    This proposed work is for the design of an innovative broadband circuit for high-power multiple beam klystrons. A key technical objective is to develop an output cavity with high interaction impedance to ensure high power and high efficiency circuit operation at reasonable beam voltages. A buncher circuit design to effect a uniform bunching current across the band will also be developed to take ad ...

  4. Low Noise, High Efficiency InGaAs/InAIAs Avalanche Photodiodes for Photon Counting at 1.55 Micrometer Wavelength

    SBC: COVEGA, INC.            Topic: 8312

    A large area (diameter > 200 micrometer) mesa type InGaAs/InAlAs avalanche photodiode with a novel surface passivation technique is proposed for photon counting at eye-safe wavelength of > 1.4 micrometer. The device is expected to exhibit high detection efficiency, low dark count rate with minimal afterpusling, due to the small k factor of InAlAs gain material and the unique mesa sidewall treatmen ...

  5. Cavitating Jets for Aquaculture Wast Treatment and Recycling

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 816

    Concentrated aquatic animal production facilities (CAAP) have recently fallen under new EPA effluent limitations. Compliance with these guidelines creates the opportunity to improve effluent and recycled water quality. Cavitation caused by our FYNAJETS and the collapse of micro-bubbles in water is a low energy, high efficiency method of applying thermal and mechanical stress and chemical oxidati ...

  10. Approach to Enhancing Target Discrimination via 3D Visualization without 3D Glasses

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA05T008

    There are many factors that render automatic target recognition challenging. These include cluttered background, adverse weather and acquisition conditions, spatially closed targets, spectrally-matched decoys, and the limits on sensor resolution etc. One solution is to have a 3D display, which will help discriminate the targets. However, a major challenge in rectifying the sensor streams, i.e. to ...
