  1. User-Friendly 3D Environmental Profiler AUV

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 813

    We propose Ranger ES, a low cost, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for three-dimensional profiling and water samplings of chemical, physical, and biological parameters of oceanic and fresh waters. The AUV will be programmable by point and click to analyze a volume of water continuously for the selected parameters. After returning for pickup after a day¿s run, it will download its data into a ...

  2. A Multi-Parameter Inorganic Carbon Measurement System

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 822

    NOAA requests proposals to develop a system for the measurement of pCO2, dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and total alkalinity (AT) for shipboard use. In response, Sunburst Sensors proposed integration of a novel approach for analysis of AT developed at the University of Montana (UM) with existing DIC and pCO2 analyzers developed by Burke Hales (OSU) and pH and pCO2 sensors developed at UM. In P ...

  3. Microbial Enhancement of Flax to Replace Fishmeal and Oil in Salmonid Diets

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used innovative fungal culture technology in separate processes to develop low cost, multi activity cell ...

  4. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  6. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  7. DIGESTIVE ENZYME SUPPLEMENTS TO INERT FEEDS FOR SMALL-EGG FISH LARVAE

    SBC: International Aquaculture Res            Topic: N/A

    INADEQUATE STARTER FEEDS SEVERELY HOLD BACK NEW AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES SUCH AS PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO RAISE FISHES WHOSE LARVAE DEVELOP FROM SMALL EGGS AND HAVE VERY "DIFFICULT" FOOD REQUIREMENTS. INERT LARVAL FEEDS HAVE NOT SUCCESSFULLYELIMINATED THE STRICT DEPENDENCY ON NATURAL FORAGE DURING THE CRITICAL POST-LARVAL STAGE AFTER YOLK ABSORPTION AND BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH ...
