  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. Modular Micro-Weather Station for Use in Open Ocean and Coastal Marine Environments

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    NOAA collects meteorological measurements in open ocean and coastal marine environments from research vessels, data buoys and commercial ships for use in numerical weather prediction, global climate change research, and severe storm identification. The current system cost for robust marine automated meteorological stations is too high to allow ubiquitous use on all the available platforms. Throu ...

  3. Bottom Water Temperature and Pressure Sensor with Real-time Readout

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: 834

    Monitors that are currently used to periodically record bottom water temperatures cannot be read by the lobstermen who use them. In addition, current monitors make no provision for recording changes in depth if they are redeployed in a different location. The specific aim of this proposal is to develop a sensor that will measure water temperature and pressure hourly and will be readable by a rad ...

  4. Rugged Electrodes for Mapping Sediment Habitat

    SBC: ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENT SYSTEMS            Topic: 835

    Currently no commercially available voltammetric electrode system exists which can operate in the water column, water/sediment interface or sediment. These electrodes need to sense a variety of electroactive species in the marine environment, which are biogeochemical relevant to understanding the Essential Fish Habitat. More importantly, these electrodes must be able to take the punishment of mu ...

  5. High Precision Monitoring Instrumentation for Background Methane

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Our Phase I effort was successful. We upgraded our baseline methane analyzer to meet or surpass the levels of performance posed by DOC solicitation subtopic 8.1.1R: sensitivity of 10 ppb (dry mole fraction), low maintenance for extended periods at remote field sites, less than one liter (NTP) of reference gas per day, and negligible response to platform motion. The analyzer is a novel applicatio ...

  6. Construction and Testing of a Spar Feeding System for an Offshore Aquaculture Farm

    SBC: Cates International, Inc.            Topic: 845

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to add telemetry and monitoring equipment to the spar designed and constructed under our Phase I contract. Furthermore, we propose to test and evaluate an automated spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. C Cates International, Inc. has developed a feeding system for it¿s underwater cages that functions from a small boat. But ...

  7. Build a Prototype "Grid In A Box" Software Product for NOAA

    SBC: Fairfield Technologies Inc.            Topic: 817

    Brief Description of Problem: NOAA¿s AWIPS is a cornerstone of NWS¿ forecast mission. As advanced as AWIPS is, it still faces challenges similar to many systems, including: system capacity over-/under-utilization; data and analysis stovepiping; and complex data management needs. Innovations: In Phase 1, FTI successfully demonstrated that grid computing and ontologies could enable communicati ...

  8. Advanced Microwave Antenna for Airborne Soil Moisture and Salinity Mapping

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: 8110

    The NOAA Environmental Technology Laboratory seeks to perform advanced wide-area mapping of soil moisture and salinity. This requires a large scanning antenna with aerodynamic form, narrow beamwidth, high efficiency, and dual polarization. This antenna system must provide operation at L-band (1400-1427 MHz) and C-band (6.0-6.5 GHz). This large aperture must maintain stable performance independe ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
