  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. Non-Fouling Oceanographic Temperature and Conductivity Sensor

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 823

    Arete will develop a non-fouling, robust, monolithic, sensor package that will yield accurate salinity calculations from temperature and conductivity measurements. The sensor comprises a unique conductivity cell, a thick-film thermistor, and an embedded ultrasonic cleaning device used to remove all incipient detritus from the sensor head. The temperature and conductivity measurements will be pro ...

  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. Velocity Measurement from a Buoy in an Open Ocean Environment

    SBC: Optical Air Data Systems, LLC            Topic: 825

    Wind velocity is a critical parameter measured by ocean observing systems. Currently, wind velocity is measured from most buoys with mechanical or point acoustic anemometers that measure wind at the sensor location that is distorted by surface roughness and boundary layer effects. These sensors are also subject to vandalism as they are highly visible on the buoy platform. To replace these inade ...

  5. Remote Sensing of Coastal Phenomena

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 827

    Planning Systems, Inc. (PSI) proposes to demonstrate through modeling and simulation, that polarization technology can be exploited to enhance the remote detection of coastal phenomena relevant to NOAA¿s mission. PSI proposes to adapt an existing toolkit developed under Air Force research and refined for commercial applications, PSI¿s Polarization Toolkit (P2T). We will modify P2T to ident ...

  6. Miniature Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometer for Measuring Tropospheric Ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 814

    Southwest Sciences proposes continuing development of an instrument for use on a lightweight aircraft capable of measuring tropospheric concentrations of ammonia. Gas phase ammonia plays important roles in determining the formation and composition of aerosol particles. Understanding the chemical and physical properties of aerosol particles is critical towards understanding global climate change, ...

  7. Rugged Optical Carbon Monoxide Field Analyzer

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 814

    Detection of carbon monoxide (CO) is an essential element of the North American Carbon Program. CO detection is challenging because of the low, 100 parts-per-billion (ppb), concentrations in the atmosphere and the required 10 ppb precision. Vista Photonics proposes to develop novel optical sensing technology that will provide unambiguous carbon monoxide detection with better than 10 ppb precisio ...

  8. Acoustic Pulsed Phase Locking Energy Sensor (APPLES)

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Luna Innovations proposes to develop for NIST a low-cost, yet high resolution acoustic sensor system capable of determining micro-degree changes in a water path caused by clinical medical radiation devices. The sensors are external to the water and play a negligible role in thermal transfer in contrast to current thermocouple devices in use today. An exciting element in this proposal is APPLES' ab ...

  9. Technologies to Enhance Fire Safety


    Communications between fire fighting teams traditionally consists of two-way, trunked and conventional radios that severely degrade once inside of a building or tunnel. The proposed research is focused on solving the uninterrupted in-building and in-tunnel voice and data services which are critical for fire fighter safety. Innovative Wireless Technologies (IWT) of Forest, Virginia proposes a feasi ...

  10. DIVERSE WIMP Framework

    SBC: OPEN TECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Open Tech proposes to adapt the WIMP (Window Icon Menu Pointer) interface for immersive applications. Using logical input devices like windows, menus, sliders, and buttons applications can be built to be device independent. Open Tech¿s innovative approach uses a laser pointer like mouse to control a 3D WIMP interface. Scientists will be able to quickly build interfaces that are easier to learn, ...
