  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. Build a Prototype "Grid In A Box" Software Product for NOAA

    SBC: Fairfield Technologies Inc.            Topic: 817

    Brief Description of Problem: NOAA¿s AWIPS is a cornerstone of NWS¿ forecast mission. As advanced as AWIPS is, it still faces challenges similar to many systems, including: system capacity over-/under-utilization; data and analysis stovepiping; and complex data management needs. Innovations: In Phase 1, FTI successfully demonstrated that grid computing and ontologies could enable communicati ...

  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 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 ...

  5. Offshore Semi-autonomous Fish Feeding System

    SBC: Net Systems, Inc.            Topic: 845

    As fish farmers attempt to increase capacity they are being forced to move to more Exposed growing sites. The technology for rearing fish in this high-energy environment is dependent on robust fish pens and infrastructure to support them. One very important technology that must be developed is an automated feeding system capable of operating in this difficult environment. Based on the results of ...

  6. A New Generation of Anti-Viral Vaccines for Aquaculture Using Nanotechnology

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 846

    Although companies based outside the U.S. have tested and, in some cases, sold basic anti-viral vaccines to aquaculture producers, practicing veterinarians and virologists have been unimpressed by their extremely limited effectiveness (J. Mullins, pers. comm. 2002; J. Winton, pers. comm. 2004). The consensus is that new approaches are urgently needed to develop viral vaccines that do not rely on ...

  7. A Low-cost, Single or Multi-point Oxygen Concentration Measurement Technique

    SBC: Research International, Inc            Topic: 821

    Aquatic environments are poorly understood and this lack of understanding needs to change as population pressures affect all aqueous biomes, particularly those of the oceans. A major difficulty in gathering data from the oceans is the lack of appropriate instrumentation. The principals of Research International have been developing sensors for physical, chemical and biological analysis for some ...

  8. High Power Single Frequency Source for Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NIST is using a sensitive optical technique called cavity ring-down detection to permit detection of impurities in semiconductor process gases, which cause substantial losses in manufacturing yield. In order to increase the sensitivity and range of application of this technique, improved single frequency laser sources are required. In particular, lasers providing more power, narrower line-width, b ...

  9. 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 ...

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

    SBC: TECHNOLOGIES & DEVICES INTERNATIONAL,            Topic: N/A

    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 ...
