  1. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  2. Natural Adjuvants to enhance Efficacy of Viral Vaccines for Mariculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 812

    Viral diseases are a major impediment to the development and expansion of environmentally safe and sustainable aquaculture systems (NMFS 2007). Despite control measures, pathogenic viruses kill millions of fish and shellfish every year (ICES Mariculture Committee 2004). To date, vaccines against fish viruses have generally provided extremely poor protection or are too expensive (e.g. DNA ...

  3. Development of an Extended Range, high Precision 3-D Acoustic Tag Underwater Positioning System for Monitoring Animals in the Marine Environment

    SBC: Hydroacoustic Technology, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Ecosystem-based marine research would benefit from an improved ability to investigate the ecology of marine animal populations on both large and small spatial scales. Acoustic tag monitoring systems are a preferred technology for monitoring animal movement and behavior in the marine environment. However, the marine acoustic tagging systems currently available generally lack precise posit ...

  4. Innovative Track Gage Measurement System

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: 101FR6

      This proposal presents two innovative non-contact track gage measurement techniques, microwave and ultrasound.  Both methods will be investigated and tested under harsh experimental setup conditions simulating outdoor train track.  Based on the initial test results, the more promising of the proposed two techniques will be further developed into a system with optimized measurement ...

  5. The Use of Ion-Accumulating Halophytes for the Phytoremediation of Saline and Selenium Impacted Soil and Water in Cold-Arid Climates

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: 84

    The Bureau of Land Management and other agencies have called the rapid expansion of energy exploration on the Rocky Mountain Front, the single largest environmental challenge facing the western U.S. The Powder River Basin (PRB) of Wyoming and Montana is an area of major development for coal bed methane gas (CBM) exploration. CBM resides in underground coal seams, trapped by large aquifers of water ...

  6. Development of a Mycoherbicide for Control of Dandelion

    SBC: Agricultural Resch Init            Topic: 82

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will evaluate a fungal organism as a mycoherbicide for control of dandelion in the turf. Because of significant growth in the turf grass industry and the subsequent increase in use of chemical herbicides, this technology can have impact to lessen environmental issues surrounding pesticide use, especially in areas of high public contact such a ...

  7. Commercial-Scale Implementation of Blue-Catfish Germplasm for Hybrid Production

    SBC: BAXTER LAND COMPANY ,INC            Topic: 87

    Our long-range goal is to cryopreserve blue catfish sperm reliably at a commercial scale in a cost-effective manner for high-throughput production of catfish hybrids. This effort could allow farmers to specialize in germplasm only, or hybrid fingerling production only, thereby diversifying the industry and enhancing economic opportunities for catfish producers throughout rural southeastern region ...

  8. Plant Produced Porcine IL-12 Vaccine Adjuvant for Swine Flu and Other Viral Diseases

    SBC: Biostratagies, LC            Topic: 82

    As the nation attempts to meet the challenges posed by the spread of pandemic influenza there is a need for innovative strategies to produce effective vaccines for humans, poultry and livestock. Interleukin-12 (IL-12) is a potent adjuvant of cell-mediated immunity that has been shown to enhance protection afforded by influenza vaccines. The use of IL-12 adjuvant could improve vaccines for several ...

  9. A Sensitive Single-tube Immunocapture Real-Time RT-PCR for Early Detection of Plant Pathogens in Crops

    SBC: AC DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: 82

    Plant virus infections cause tremendous economic losses in agricultural production each year in the U.S. Potential introduction of foreign pathogens which could threaten the safety of American agriculture has accelerated in recent years because of increasing international seed and plant trade. The first line of defense against such devastating viral diseases is the early and sensitive detection of ...

  10. Upgrading Struvite Recovered from Dairy Waste into Marketable Fertilizer and Feed Products

    SBC: Multiform Harvest Inc            Topic: 811

    This project develops a commercial process for modifying phosphorus recovered from dairy manure and other waste streams into marketable feed and fertilizer products. Phosphorus release from dairies and other concentrated feeding operations is a growing environmental problem. Meanwhile, domestic supplies of mined phosphorus are rapidly depleting, confronting U.S. agriculture with serious cost impac ...
