  1. Establish Effective Feeding and Harvest Protocol for Rainbow Smelt

    SBC: HARMON BROOK FARM            Topic: N/A

    Present supplies of rainbow smelt, both for live bait and human consumption, are provided, almost exclusively, by commercial harvest of wild populations. This project will develop alternative sources of rainbow smelt for the market and eventually reduce the harvest of wild populations. This project will shift the focus from commercial fishing of wild public resources to commercial fish culture tec ...

  2. A Business Model for Productive Successful Aging in Place in Rural Maine

    SBC: Lilliana Jodoin-Reitman, DBA Global Wellness            Topic: N/A

    Many rural older adults are often forced to leave the homes in which they have raised families and lived for decades because they can no longer physically, financially, or emotionally maintain their homes. Until now, little attention has been focused on technological tools, social structures, and practical ways to empower people to remain in their homes. This proposal fills that gap. The demograph ...

  3. Develop a Lobster Branding Strategy that Leverages Maine's Quality Reputation and Exploits Growing Demand for Ready to Prepare Meals

    SBC: Saltwater Marketing, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Lobster is sold today on a non-branded commodity basis with little regard for consumer desires and needs. The opportunity to build a Maine lobster brand is threatened by new Country of Origin regulations since today basic meat extraction practices take place primarily in Canada. Creating a brand of value-added Maine lobster products offers a significant opportunity to turn a commodity driven sale ...

  4. Wireless EMG and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The project focuses on the development of a small, water-proof elecromyographic (EMG) sensor for a myoelectric arm prosthesis that transmits by a wireless link and can be easily and consistently installed over any muscle site. The wireless link eliminates wires and connectors inside the arm socket that can be bulky and unreliable due to corrosion and breakage of wires representing a significant i ...

  5. Wireless EMG Preamp and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Develops a small waterproof Warless EMG Preamp sensor for myoelectric arm prostheses that transmits a digital signal via a wireless link eliminating many of the wires and connectors associated with arm prostheses and allowing connection to modern rollon gel type liners

  6. STTR Phase I: Advanced Fuel Cell Energy-Management Electronics and Control for Microgrid

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) PhaseI project will design, fabricate, and validate a novel low cost (under $40/kW), robust and high-power-density 3 kW fuel cell (FC) power-conditioning system (PCS) suitable for lower voltage FC stacks, comprising a high-frequency inverter (HFI) followed by a forced cyclo-converter, which yields the following features: (1) 300 kHz switching frequen ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Atlantic Cod Nodavirus Vaccine

    SBC: Maine BioTek, Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel recombinant vaccine for the control of viral nervous necrosis (VNN) of cultured Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in New England and Atlantic Canada. The Atlantic cod nodavirus causes VNN which is characterized by the appearance of lesions in the brain and retina, abnormal swimming behavior, and dark coloring. The acu ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: A Lateral Field Excited Immunosensor for Pathogenic Bacteria in Drinking Water

    SBC: Mainely Sensors, LLC            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a lateral field excited (LFE) acoustic wave immunosensor for the detection of the pathogenic bacteria, E. coli, in drinking water. Current methods of testing drinking water for E. coli have several major drawbacks, which include time- and labor-intensive sample collection and lengthy laboratory analyses tha ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Multi-Environment Probability Density Function (PDF) Method for Modeling Turbulent Combustion Using Detailed Chemistry

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will extend the applicability of the multi-environment probability density function (MEPDF) method to model turbulent combustion problems with realistic chemical kinetics within comprehensive Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations of practical combustion equipment. The project aims to further advance the MEPDF method by extendi ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: T-Splines for Surface Intersection

    SBC: T-Spline Company            Topic: IT

    This SBIR Phase II project addresses what is considered to be a significant unsolved problem in the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) industry; the fact that many CAD models contain numerous small, unwanted holes or gaps. These gaps occur most often along the seams where two surfaces in a CAD model meet, such as where a wing meets the fuselage of an airplane, and result from fundamental mathematical lim ...
