  2. In-Field Detection Kit for Algal Bloom Toxins

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    Intelligent Optical Systems will develop an accurate, inexpensive, rapid, and quantitative device for the detection of harmful algal bloom toxins and toxigenic organisms. The device will be ideally suited for field use, and will provide information about multiple toxins in less than a few minutes. This portable device will obviate the need for laborious, time-consuming, and expensive laboratory ...

  3. A Submersible Video Recorder for Marine Biological Surveys

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 8113

    We propose research to develop and demonstrate a deeply submersible video plankton recording system (ViPR) to perform image recording of plankton. The ViPR will apply artificial intelligence to 2-D or 3-D imaging using pattern recognition for a statistically reliable survey of plankton using two cameras, one for larger zooplankton and the other for microplankton. The ViPR computer will be PC compl ...

  5. Multipath Reducing GPS Receiver and Antenna

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to design an improved GPS receiver and GPS antenna to reduce installation-dependent errors due to multipath. To develop the receiver, we will prototype and implement various interference cancellation algorithms on a software-defined radio simulation toolkit and hardware testbed. We will design an antenna complementary to this receiver that will suppress signals ...

  6. Protection of Transgenic Poultry from Marek's Disease Virus by RNAi

    SBC: AviGenics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MDV is a herpesvirus which causes a lymphoproliferative disorder of domestic chickens. Yearly economic losses from Marek's disease (MD) total $1 billion worldwide and more than $100 million in the U.S. MDV vaccines are limited in their effectiveness since continued evolution of MDV field strains results in serotypes of greater virulence. A more economically feasible and effective way to inhibit MD ...

  7. Spatial-Frequency-Domain Imaging Instrument for Quality Assessment of Apples

    SBC: EA Photonics            Topic: N/A

    Inspection, detection, and sorting are of great importance in the fruit industry. Manual inspection is expensive, slow, and prone to error and inconsistency. Because of the great potential benefits to the fruit industry, improved machine vision systems are needed in order to extend the quality control task to include detection of more subtle phenomena such as bruises and degree of ripeness. The pr ...

  8. Towards Improved Absorption of Nicarbazin Used to Limit Population Growth in Canada Geese

    SBC: Innolytics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    1. Increased numbers of Canada geese resident in the US negatively affects the health, safety and property of humans. No practical and humane solution is available to mitigate the damage caused by this excess goose population. 2. Innolytics plans to register and market a novel technology to humanely control the population of the Canada goose and mitigate the before mentioned risk. The product to b ...

  9. Innovative Tools and Methods for Mating Disruption of the Carob Moth

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The California date industry produces about 20,000 tons of dates annually with a gross value of about $50 million. The only significant pest of dates is the carob moth Ectomyelois ceratoniae (Pyralidae), a recent immigrant species and a key pest of the California date industry that can devastate entire crops if left unchecked. This serious pest of many other crops around the world is now moving to ...

  10. Electrochemical Carbon Dioxide Gererator for Mosquito Surveillance

    SBC: Med-e-cell            Topic: N/A

    Monitoring of mosquitoes activity is needed for population control. Monitoring methods and tools that can be effectively used in the field, are essential for this purpose. Some of these tools are cumbersome and difficult to operate and control. Carbon dioxide, a known attractant in mosquito traps,is available as dry ice, in compressed heavy cylinders and through propane combustion. The purpose of ...
