  1. Developing Commercial Quantum Resistance Standard Based on Epitaxial Graphene

    SBC: Graphene Waves, LLC            Topic: None

    Graphene Waves proposes to develop a quantum Hall resistance (QHR) standard based on graphene that can be deployed for general electrical calibration in industries. Current QHR standard is based on GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure and requires expensive liquid helium to operate. The continuous increase in price and unstable supply chain of liquid helium limit the QHR standard to be only affordable by t ...

  4. DeapSeaVision-AI

    SBC: Synthetik Applied Technologies LLC            Topic: 832

    Marine life entanglement is one of the critical permitting issues that is currently constraining the growth of domestic offshore aquaculture. Synthetik Applied Technologies is proposing to develop a low-cost entanglement detection system for offshore aquaculture operators. The system will use a combination of near real-time satellite imagery, intelligent on-site cameras (both above and below the w ...

  5. A Blubber or Dorsal Fin Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Phase II goal is to de ...

  6. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    The Bottom Feeder project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a prototype platform. The prototype will be a full size version of the platform designed during Phase I. The Phase I platform was designed to work in two operational configurations, a highly efficient mode and a highly maneuverable mode, with the ability to switch between them while submerged. The platform is equ ...

  7. A Web-based, Interactive, Long-range Hydrologic Forecast Tool for the Western U.S.

    SBC: 3Tier Environmental Forecast Group, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Water resource managers must translate uncertain information about the future into operational decisions that can have large public safety, economic and ecological impacts. Seasonal forecasts of climate and hydrology can be an important tool in assisting managers in their decision making process. However, studies evaluating the utility of seasonal forecasts have repeatedly identified the lack of ...

  8. NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) "Smart Receiver"

    SBC: Hy-Tek, Ltd.            Topic: 837

    There is a critical need for a high performance receiver that knows where it is, knows where the NWR transmitting stations are, tunes itself to the local NWR station (especially in a mobile environment), provides weather and warnings in both audio and text, requires little-to-no setup and can communicate with other devices such as external alarms and network systems that can better warn its owner ...

  9. A Prototype Net Cleaning System for Open-Ocean Aquaculture Cages

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Open-Ocean Aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several technical refinements the industry must undergo in order to maximize productivity and future expansion. We address a problem common to all off-shore open-ocean aquaculture cage systems, marine biofouling of the net mesh used for the enclosure. Significant amounts of biofoulding leads to increased pollutant ...

  10. Nanotechnology Systems to Prevent Disease and Improve Healing of Aquatic Animals

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 8111

    Netting, tagging, and/or vaccination of shrimp or fish often result in increased stress and infections caused by opportunistic pathogens. Damaged epidermis or cuticle provides a portal of entry to potentially deadly infective agents that bind preferentially to injured cells. Recent advances in nanotechnology and computer-assisted scanning instrumentation now make it possible to quantify progress ...
