  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. 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 ...

  3. Ground Level Assimilative Model (GLAM) of Geomagnetic Field Disturbance Conditions

    SBC: Metatech APS Division            Topic: 812

    Geomagnetic disturbances have caused widespread disruptions to power grids throughout North America. It is necessary to fully describe the complex physical manifestation of geomagnetic disturbance environments to model how and to what extent these disturbances impact modern ground-based critical infrastructures. The Ground Level Assimilative Model (GLAM) would provide the general public and opera ...

  4. Protective Probiotic Microbes Against IHNV Infection in Rainbow Trout

    SBC: ABN            Topic: N/A

    Infectious Hematopoietic Necrosis Virus (IHNV) causes a significant proportion of disease in trout as well as in salmon. However, there is currently no commercial vaccine available to easily immunize fish against IHNV. A preventive treatment to reduce these considerable losses would be a significant contribution to the farmed salmonid industry. Bacteria belonging to the genera Pseudomonas, Achromo ...

  5. Species Authentication of Catfish Using Protein and DNA Based Diagnostics

    SBC: APL Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A.Imported fish of lesser value and quality are being substituted in the U.S. market for domestic channel catfish. Visually, the imported fillets can not be distinguished from U.S. channel catfish. B.Traditional protein banding techniques (isoelectric focusing) for species identification are not reliable on value-added or processed fish. C.Traditional authentication methods are time consuming and ...

  6. WirlWind (WIReLess area INciDent network)


    Problems with current radio based incident communications systems include: only VHF or UHF radio technology is used, limited number and range of frequencies, interagency cooperation hampered by incompatible frequencies and devices, terrain causes line-of-site and visibility problems for communications, potential for single point failures, geared towards voice capability, few data transmit/receive ...

  7. High Efficiency Trail Assessment Process for Rural Trails

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Currently, the benefits of objective trail information are limited in rural areas because the team of people required to complete the UTAP is difficult and costly to assemble. The USDA Forest Service is responsible for the management of 133,000 miles of trails and public lands with trails held by other Federal government agencies also extensive. With 84% of Americans reporting that they walk for r ...

  8. Bio-Based Primary Plasticizer for PVC Plastic

    SBC: Chemical Business Development Consulting, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The market for plasticizers is as much as 5 billion pounds world wide basis, 2 billion USA alone. Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESO) represents 0.5 billion of the world wide market of these plasticizers, 0.15 billion USA. Pthalates are under investigation for toxicity. ESO (epoxidized soybean oil)plasticizers can not be increased in current formulations as ESO exudes when at levels beyond 5-7%. Develop ...

  9. Anthelmintic Compounds Targeting Methyltransferases

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The long-term goal of this project is to develop and commercialize anthelmintic drugs to treat nematode infections of animals. Control of parasitic nematode infections in livestock and companion animals is currently dependent on chemical classes discovered more than two decades ago. The economic burden of nematode diseases and the rise of drug-resistant nematodes make it imperative that new effect ...

  10. A New Safer Class of Agricultural Nematicides Targeting a Specific Gene

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Plant parasitic nematodes are among the most important pests of crops in the United States. The USDA's Committee on National Needs and Priorities in Nematology estimated the value of plant damage by nematodes in the U.S. at $7-9 billion annually. Chemical control of nematodes has proven to be effective; however most nematicides have toxicological or environmental concerns and many are under regula ...
