  2. Offshore Spar Based Fish Feeder

    SBC: Net Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

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

  5. Low-Cost Night Vision System for High-Speed Vessel Operations

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    On this program, we will design, fabricate and test of a novel wide field-of-view night-vision system for use by coxswains and crewmembers during night intercepts. The system is capable of providing the visual acuity, depth perception and situational awareness necessary for high-speed boat maneuvers and allows the operator to see the sea state at night, safely maneuver a high-speedboat and pursue ...

  6. Intrinsic Distributed Fiber Optic Leak Detection

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: N/A

    Monitoring and inspection of pipelines are essential for optimal operation of the energy infrastructure of the nation. However, methods that are currently used for pipeline inspection and diagnostics are typically either slow, do not provide high spatial resolution, suffer from excessive false-alarms, or are not real-time. Development of a system for the real-time monitoring of pipelines to dete ...

  7. A2a Adenosine Receptors and Equine Sepsis


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This is a phase I SBIR proposal by Adenosine Therapeutics for 6 months of support to synthesize and evaluate novel compounds as agonists of equine A2A adenosine receptors. Some of these compounds have been found to be very effective in reducing rodent mortality form endotoxin or from E. coli-induced sepsis. Circulating endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide) is correlated with the pr ...

  8. An Automated Fish Migration Pattern Monitoring System Using Shape Descriptors for Pattern Recognition

    SBC: Agris-Schoen Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fish ecology and environmental research scientists have an urgent need for an automated fish recognition system for monitoring fish migration patterns. Many fish species are known to travel for great distances during their life cycle. As they travel past dams equipped with a fish passage, their species, size, total number, and the time are recorded for migration pattern stud ...

  9. Developing Novel Rice Cultivars With Improved Processing

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: United States domestic rice production is an important industry that directly and indirectly generates over 55,000 jobs and over $9 billion in income. An abundant by-product of the rice milling industry is rice bran. Rich in nutritious proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants, it is nevertheless an underutilized resource because of its tendency to spoil rapidly. Spoilage is caus ...

  10. Commercialization of Sustained Release Delivery Systems for Controlling and Monitoring Fire Ants

    SBC: BioGuard Research & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Imported fire ants have a combined impact/cost of over $6B annually including loss of human life. Of that, approximately $1B is agricultural damage to crops, livestock and other domesticated animals. The purpose is to improve/reformulate then laboratory/field-test the efficacy of a series of "very successful" Phase I SBIR sustained-release prototypes for deliverying volatile ...
