  1. Full Spectrum Complete IOP Instrument Suite

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: 821

    In the Phase I effort, we developed conceptual designs and methods for novel oceanographic optical instruments that measure a complete set of water inherent optical properties across the full visible spectrum at high spectral resolution. One instrument is a new type of in-situ absorption meter that maintains high accuracy over a wide range of water optical properties, from the clearest waters to ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Universal Commuter Railcar Boarding Device for Use by Both Disabled and Able-bodied Individuals Configurable for all U.S. Railstation Platforms

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    SAFE proposes to design and develop a boarding device for heavy rail passenger cars. The boarding system will enable the loading of all passengers regardless of mobility from a wide range of platform configurations. Once installed on a passenger railcar, that car can be used with any of four platform configurations: high level platforms close to the car, high level platforms with partial setbac ...

  7. An Innovative Supplemental Automotive Seating System for Short-Stature Individuals

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    Individuals who are of short stature face impediments when driving automobiles due to their inability to effectively operate vehicle controls, to clearly see the external roadway environment, and to properly use the vehicle restraint system. These impediments could be largely removed if a device could be developed to elevate the driver to a sitting position similar to that afforded to average hei ...

  8. Soybean Oil Based High Performance Nanocomposites

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Epoxidized soybean oil has not been evaluated as a composite matrix to create high performance composites A. Natural fibers and nanoclay particulates will be evaluated as matrix additives to the epoxidized soybean oil. B. The purpose of this study is to evaluate an extrusion based freeforming process to align the fibers and obtain improved mechanical properties.

  9. Enhancing Mycoherbicide Storage Capabilities Through Encapsulation Technology

    SBC: Agricultural Resch Init            Topic: N/A

    Although biocontrol technology, including mycoherbicides, has been investigated for a long period of time, few products have actually made it into the commercial loop. The reasons for this are varied and include unfavorable environmental conditions, small markets and poor shelf-life. The test mycoherbicide candidate in this project, A. destruens, is plagued by poor shelf-life and storage capabilit ...

  10. Developing Novel Rice Cultivars with Improved Processing Properties

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Rice bran spoils rapidly because the oils become rancid due to the activity of particular lipase enzymes. Thus rice bran, though an abundant by-product of milling, has little value. Our project may lead to improved rice varieties that have bran that is less prone to spoilage.
