Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB05.1-004-2005
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The purpose of this project is to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a concept design for a low cost underwater threat detection system to protect critical shoreline and waterside infrastructure. For 26 years, BioSonics has designed and manufactured state-of-the-art digital scientific echosounder technologies for real-time detection, tra...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

Assessment of biomass and fish size in aquaculture is needed for a number of reasons, including: 1. Determining feed rates according to the number and size of fish in each pen. 2. Appraisal of growth rates and food conversion factors. 3. Inventory of fish required by banks and insurance companies. 4. Early detection of fish losses. 5. Determinin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Net-pen aquaculture, in both freshwater and marine environments, is a large agricultural sector and produces a significant component of the world's fish for human consumption. Increasing pressure to generate profit and decrease production costs, plus pressure by the public and private sector to address ecological concerns ...

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Current methods for assessment of biomass and size of fish for aquaculture companies require excessive handling of the fish. This induces mortality, slows growth and causes illness. Results produced by these methods are inaccurate, labor intensive and increase production costs. Assessment of biomass and fish size in aquaculture is needed for a n...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-130
Budget: 12/22/01 - 06/11/02

The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of an underwater ship perimeter security monitoring system based on the application and modification of commercially produced hydroacoustic systems and software. The existing hydroacoustic systems are based on SONAR technology common to many navigation and ranging systems but th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

Feeding fish represents about 50 to 60% of the direct production expenses of an aquaculture operation. Wasted feed during the feeding process can range from 10 to 40%. Feed waste has negative environmental impacts. Waste accumulated underneath fish pens is toxic and must be removed periodically, which translates into additional labor costs. Hand...
