Award List:

ELF Nonsinusoidal Airborne ASW Radar

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$104,054.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Dr. Donald E. Barrick
Abstract:
We propose an ELF airborne radar operating below 50 Hz that will detect acoustically quiet threat sumersibles at moderate depths in coastal/harbor waters. Bisatic as well as backscatter geometries are to be considered. The investigation will optimize nonsinusoidal signal waveforms for this problem.… More

Improved Current Mapping with HF Radars: Correction for Antenna Pattern Distortion

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$48,869.00
Agency:
DOC
Principal Investigator:
Belinda Lipa , Vice President
Abstract:
There are two types of HF radar commercially available for measuring ocean surface currents: narrow-beam phased-arrays and broad-beam direction-finding SeaSondes. Comparison between simultaneous data from the two types of radar has never been made, but quantitative differences have been observed… More

ELF/VLF Electromagnetic Detection and Characterization of Deeply Buried Targets

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,610.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Donald Barrick
Abstract:
We propose to provide a numerical capability to map the ELF/VLF electric and magnetic fields above the ground, as perturbed by threat underground structures of interest to the DoD. MATLAB source code will be delivered that will produce these perturbed fields as a function of radio frequency, as… More

Multi-Static SeaSonde Ocean Current Mapping by Ships Underway

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,905.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Donald E. Barrick, President and CEO
Abstract:
"The proposed SBIR efforts build on CODAR Ocean Sensors' extensive base of commercial HF radar products and technology, including demonstrated bistatic and multi-static deployment capabilities. We will extend these concepts heretofore intended for coastalsiting to ships underway, with the goal of… More

Multi-Static SeaSonde Ocean Current Mapping by Ships Underway

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$0.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Donald Barrick, President
Abstract:
Under the Phase 1 effort, we developed tools that allow us to define system performance when transmitter and/or receiver are installed on vessels underway. These embody the basic physics of multi-static HF sea scatter and radar signal processing. Thetools are used to study tradeoffs of performance… More

HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$94,977.41
Agency:
DOC
Principal Investigator:
Donald Barrick, President
Abstract:
Of more than 100 HF Radars operating within the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), more than half run either without recommended receive antenna pattern calibrations or with out-of-date calibrations, despite potential compromises to data quality. Cost is the primary inhibitor of… More

HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$399,883.48
Agency / Branch:
DOC / NOAA
Principal Investigator:
Chad Whelan, Project Manager – (408) 773-8240
Abstract:
Over 300 HF RADARs worldwide are producing ocean surface data that is used in oil spill response, search & rescue, vessel traffic management, and research. In the U.S. there are 100+ systems supplying real-time data to the Coast Guard, NOAA IOOS, OR&R and other operational groups. To provide the… More
