  1. Automation of Fish Net Pen Operations

    SBC: Ocean Farm Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 8114

    Open-ocean finfish aquaculture presents many challenges including net handling, scuba diving in adverse conditions, maintenance, and feeding. In Phase I, Ocean Farm Technologies, Inc. successfully demonstrated the feasibility of pen rotation, which is essential to maintaining a fish pen offshore. Phase II will develop a prototype automated operations system for marine finfish net pens. Automate ...

  2. Wave Energy Conversion to Power Offshore Aquaculture

    SBC: Ocean Farm Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 8113

    Ocean Farm Technologies (OFT) proposes to examine using ocean wave energy to power offshore aquaculture. While developing offshore fish farming systems, OFT has recognized a pressing need for non-polluting, low-cost sources of power for system operations and diver support. The greatest need for power is in the form of pressurized air. OFT¿s AquaPodTM containment system utilizes air for posi ...

  3. Improved Silicon Drift Detector Coincidence Rejection for Digital Pulse Processors

    SBC: 4pi Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recent emergence of the Silicon Drift detector (SDD), for use in Energy Dispersive x-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), has made possible x-ray event streams with input count rates in the range of 1-10 Mcps. Modern digital pulse processors are therefore required to run at fast time constants to achieve reasonable throughput; however, this causes significant coincidence artifacts to appear in the spectrum ...

  4. Extended Refreshable Tactile Graphic Display (with Linear Actuation Array)

    SBC: E L I A Life Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    New innovative technology for the visually impaired has been developed by NIST. If commercialized, it would provide refreshable tactile graphical information to the visually impaired, enabling them to compete on a more equal footing in the workplace and the education system.

  5. Development and Manufacturing of Lightweight Textile Fire Barrier for Furniture and Mattresses

    SBC: Tex Tech Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New fire barrier methods are necessary to protect furniture and mattresses from fire. Current California (and soon National) regulations require mattresses to be able to pass the mattress fire burn test. Typical barrier fabrics use self extinguishing fibers with high limiting oxygen index (LOI) to create a barrier that the flame cannot pass. A second approach creates a carbon barrier that is forme ...

  6. RBAC-Based Workflow

    SBC: Virtual Globe, Inc. (Rockwise)            Topic: N/A

    Under this proposal, Virtual Global, Inc. proposes to work with NIST to develop RBAC-BASED WORKFLOW, a workflow system that will use RBAC in a web services model as a form of middleware that can be "packaged" accessed, configured, and reused by integrating with existing trusted RBAC implementations.

  7. Innovative Fire Measurements Using Thermal Imaging

    SBC: CRITICAL IMAGING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The most practical arrangement for investigating moving fires within a restricted space is to use a high- resolution stand off technique. One such method that fits this description is the use of a staring infrared (IR) sensing device (i.e. imager).
