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

    SBC: Cates International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase 1 project proposes to design, construct, and test and evaluate a spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. To minimize the labor costs for operations in a remote location, remote feeding systems are needed so that feeding of the fish can take place even if the farmer is unable to get to the site. Cates International, inc. has developed a feeding sys ...

  2. Low-Cost Automated Aerosol Lidar for Air Quality Assessment and Prediction

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Oceanit showed the feasibility of a low-cost, compact, lightweight, eye-safe LIDAR suitable for aerosol gradient detection in a Phase 1 effort. The system is based on an eye-safe laser being developed at Oceanit as part of a 3D scanning ceilometer. The laser can operate at greater power than other systems using non-eye-safe wavelengths, thus it eliminates many of the problems associated with low ...

  3. Controlling Pearl Color: Pigment Inhibitors, Promoters and Delivery Systems

    SBC: Black Pearls Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The color of nacre is one of the most significant criteria in determining the value of a pearl. Nacre color is due to both schemochromic phenomena and biochromes (pigments). The vast majority of pearl farm profits comes from the small percentage of pearls that have a perfect surface, good color, and high luster. Even small increases in these quality factors can radically inc ...

  4. Allelic Ladders for Standardization of STR Genotyping of White-Tailed Deer

    SBC: DNA SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Short Tandem Repeat (STR) loci consist of short, repetitive sequence elements ranging from 2 to 5 base pairs (bp) in length distributed throughout mammalian genomes (microsatellites). STR genotypes can be determined from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products of less 500 bp using relatively degraded DNA templates. STR fragments of discrete lengths are detected by electroph ...

  5. Value Added Product Development & Market Evaluation for Freshwater Prawns in KY

    SBC: Duntreath Farm            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Historically, Kentucky farmers have been economically sustained by tobacco production allowing many large and small acreage farmers to survive. This culture is drastically changing, and aquaculture is now providing a new means of production for many of these farmers. Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing food production activities in the world, and is the fastest growing ...

  6. Improved Production of an Economically Important Botanical

    SBC: Hawaii Agriculture Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Stevia rebaudiana can be grown in Hawaii for year-round production of a high value non-caloric sweetener. Downturns in Hawaii's agricultural economy make it imperative that new crops and complimentary production methods be established. Owing to climatic conditions in Hawaii three or four potential harvest and re-growth cycles are feasible annually. A possible constraint to a ...

  7. Development of an Organic Hawaiian Herbal Tea Industry

    SBC: Kini Po-Po Creations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The market for "organic" Hawaiian herbal teas is limited by the fact that most ingredients are wild-crafted. This project examines the possibility of the organic production of Hawaiian herbal products and the associated processing and marketing required to develop a significant market for "organic" Hawaiian herbal teas.

  9. Polymeric Amplification for Rapid L. Monocytogenes Detection

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Current state-of-the-art inspection procedures for ready-to-eat food is time-intensive, requiring processors to delay distribution and maintain extra storage facilities or to distribute the food and face the risk of an expensive recall and associated damage to the company's reputation. Productization of the successful prototype detection system will be particularly beneficia ...

  10. Coordinated Production and Marketing System for Flowering Orchid Plants

    SBC: Pacific Paradise Orchids            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Potted orchids have a wholesale value of $100 million and are the second-ranked flowering-plant in the U.S. The major problem for Hawaii producers is distance from market and high air transportation costs of tall plants. This proposal seeks to address this problem through an innovative coordinated production and marketing system. By developing new technology to control orchi ...
