  1. Metabolic and Physiological Response to Sablefish (Anaplopoma fimbria) to Variable Environmental Conditions

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 815

    Sablefish (black cod) is a promising species for marine aquaculture in Washington State because of strong demand, high prices, ease of culture from juvenile stage on, availability of large areas for commercial grow out and interest from commercial, tribal and fisheries cooperatives. But the physiological ecology of sablefish is only partially known, which hampers commercialization and the ability ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Offshore Spar Based Fish Feeder

    SBC: Net Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As fish farmers attempt to increase capacity, they are being forced to more exposed growing sites. The technology for rearing fish in this high-energy environment is dependent on robust fish pens and the infrastructure to support them. One very important technology that must be developed is an automated feeding system capable of operating in this difficult environment.Using already proven ¿spar t ...

  7. High power single frequency source for cavity ring-down spectroscopy

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aculight proposes to develop a laser source that will enable NIST to perform highly sensitive water vapor detection via cavity ring-down spectroscopy. The source will operate over a wavelength region centered at 1380nm. It will be based upon frequency conversion of a single frequency fiber source using an optical parametric oscillator (OPO).The performance of the source in terms of several critica ...

  8. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. DYNAMIC LOADS EXERTED ON OFFSHORE OIL STRUCTURES BY AQUACULTURE PEN SYSTEMS

    SBC: Net Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SURPLUS OFFSHORE OIL PLATFORMS AND SIMILAR STRUCTURES HAVE POTENTIAL AS BASES FOR THE SUPPORT OF OFFSHORE AQUACULTURE OPERATIONS. ONE CONCEPT DEVELOPED AT NET SYSTEMS ENVISIONS A PLATFORM SURROUNDED BY, AND HELPING TO SUPPORT, A RINGSHAPED ARRANGEMENT OF FLOATING FISH PENS. HOWEVER, BEFORE SUCH STRUCTURES CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO PREDICT THEIR RESPONSE TO ...
