  1. Cost-Effective Manufacturing of a Novel Selective Algaecide for the Fresh-Water Aquaculture Industry

    SBC: Nature Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: 815

    The cost-effective manufacturing of a novel algaecide against blue green algae in fresh-water aquaculture operations has great potential for controlling ¿off-flavor¿ problems in pond-raised catfish. The proposed natural-based algaecide has selective activity for blue-green algae as well as a more favorable environmental performance profile with little/no activity towards complimentary phytoplan ...

  2. Remote Sensing of Coastal Environment

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 827

    Planning Systems, Inc. (PSI) proposes to demonstrate through modeling and simulation, that polarization technology can be exploited to enhance the remote detection of coastal phenomena relevant to NOAA¿s mission. PSI proposes to adapt an existing toolkit developed under Air Force research and refined for commercial applications, PSI¿s Polarization Toolkit (P2T). We will modify P2T to ident ...

  3. Interactive CD Guide for Food-Borne Fungal Identification

    SBC: BCN Research Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Filamentous microfungi (often colloquially known as "molds") are a major cause of food wastage throughout the world, accounting for the loss of about 10% of all food production. Although good textbooks on food mycology are available, a clear need exists for simpler and more visual identification systems. Because of ease of manufacture and use, interactive potential and ability to display color pic ...

  4. Project 25 Mobile Radio Migration Platform for Homeland Security and Fire Management


    Government mandates require federal agencies to purchase digital radios compliant with Project 25 standards, but these new radios do not work with the radios currently in use by the USFS. Significant audio degradation occurs when links are attempted between different radios from different manufacturers. Existing P25 solutions require expensive dedicated circuits and do not meet the needs of the US ...

  5. Detection of Termites Using Distributed Wireless Monitoring

    SBC: Hatchpoint, LLC            Topic: N/A

    While termites inflict almost $4 Billion dollars in damage per year in the United States, termite control still depends upon labor intensive and expensive manual monitoring techniques. This project will determine the feasibility of deploying acoustic sensor arrays that will alert a Pest Management Professional (PMP) of termite activity.

  6. High Resolution Acoustic Groundwater Flow Monitor

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Luna Innovations will develop an enabling new technology to determine groundwater vector flow between well sites using acoustic propagation. The new capability is derived from Luna's patented ultrasonic phase-locked-loop research that will be scaled to operate at seismic frequencies appropriate for groundwater monitoring. The instrument will operate from small well bores to assess the dynamic and ...

  7. Cost Effective and Reliable Anaerobic Digestion for Agricultural By-products


    The current problem with on farm anaerobic digesters is the high failure rate. Some failures are do to plugging because of the viscous and heterogeneous nature of agricultural animal waste. Other digesters have been abandoned because the management of the digester was too difficult or required to much time. The purpose of this project is to develop a novel method along with the machinery capable f ...

  8. Dietary L-Thyroxine to Induce Molt Without Feed Withdrawal in Laying Chicken, Broiler Breeder, and Turkey Breeder Hens to Extend Production

    SBC: Hooge Consulting Service            Topic: N/A

    Molting (reproductive rejuvenation) of poultry to extend table or fertile egg production is a well accepted commercial practice in the U.S. However, the conventional method of ~10-day feed withdrawal to induce molt is increasingly viewed as unacceptable by McDonald's, Wendy's, AVMA, and the egg consuming public. The use of dietary L-thyroxine (T4; the natural molting hormone) for poultry can provi ...

  9. Electrical Field-Enhanced Capacitive Transducers for Humidity and Moisture Control Systems

    SBC: Horizon Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Humidity and moisture are difficult parameters to measure and control in greenhouses and in bulk stored grain. Greenhouse control systems with distributed sensors can manage dynamic environments to enhance crop yield, prevent disease, and conserve energy. Psychrometers are too complex for multi-zone climate control. At high levels of humidity, hygrometers have problems with accuracy, stability, an ...

  10. Development of Environmentally Safe Transgenic Turfgrass with Improved Traits

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Trait improvement of turfgrass through genetic engineering is important to the turfgrass industry and the environment. However, the possibility of transgene escape to wild and non-transformed species raises commercial and ecological concerns. The purpose of this project is to determine the usefulness of genetically engineered male sterility in turfgrass for producing stable, environmentally safe t ...
