Pilot Test for GPS and Beidou Dual Satellite Receiver System with Nautical Charts, Fish Finder and Automatic Identification System#

This project is a continuation of the Automatic Identification System pilot test aims to install new GPS and Beidou dual satellite receiver systems devices on small fishing vessels of less than 15 m in length to replace the traditional AIS devices in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the 4-in-1 device on safety and fishing operations compared to the traditional AIS device. The new 4-in-1 system comprises of Cantonese automatic identification AIS, fish finder, GPS and Beidou navigation and nautical chart functions. The two navigation systems can operate in parallel to achieve better positioning and reliability.

Product Development of Nano Pearl Powder with Detoxification and Antioxidant Functions*

This project is a continuation of the project on product development of nano pearl powder aiming to study the protective effects of nano pearl powder on the detoxification of accumulated metallic toxins in the food chain, as well as the antioxidant properties of nano pearl powder extracts. Nano-scale particles exhibit unique structural, chemical, mechanical, magnetic, electrical, and biological properties. Nano-medicine has gained significant attention in recent years as its nanoscale structure can be encapsulated or attached to therapeutic drugs and precisely delivered to target tissues by controlled release. The application of nanotechnology in biological science and disease prevention and treatment will be an emerging field in future development of drugs and health products.
