  1. Multi-Zone Flow Through Membrane and Reagents for Onsite Detection of Domoic Acid

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 832

    There is a need for a simple, affordable method for measuring domoic acid in the field. This project will develop a rapid, onsite kit for domoic acid featuring a filter membrane that produces a readable color response without need for instrumentation. The filter membrane contains three or more zones with different assay characteristics in close proximity. These zones will indicate different co ...

  2. Omni-Directional, Wind and Water Tolerant Inlet for the DFU

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: CBD07116

    In the proposed project, Enertechnix will develop optimized designs for an improved inlet for the Dry Filter Unit (DFU) capable of achieving high collection efficiencies for particles between 1 and 20 microns in diameter while functioning reliably on board naval vessels. This new inlet will be insensitive to wind direction and speed and will be tolerant of harsh weather and wave conditions. By inc ...

  3. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...
