Award List:

Development of Probabilistic Design Primary Loads (Vertical & Lateral Bending) for use in a Weight-Optimized Structural Design of CVNX

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: George Palmer, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $69,856.00
Abstract:
TCP/IP is the leading protocol used by networked applications the Navy requires to perform its mission. However, TCP/IP was designed for use in reliable, but possibly congested, wired networks, and thus does not support stealthy communication overintermittent and degraded wireless links as required… More

Abstract:
The proposed effort will develop a Ultra Wideband Network Datalink. Properly designed Data Link layers of protocol stacks take into account both the channel characteristics provided by the physical layer (in this case an, Ultra Wideband transciever) andthe higher layers and applications above the… More

Cross-Layer Designs for Energy-Efficient Sensor Networking

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Doug Owen, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $69,992.00
Abstract:
We propose a novel architecture for large-scale, low power sensor networks, referred to as Sensor Networks with Mobile Agents (SENMA) utilizing an Ultra Wide Band physical (PHY) layer. SENMA is designed to exploit node redundancies by introducing mobile agents that communicate opportunistically with… More

AIS Tracking and Collision Avoidance Equipment for Small Boats

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Howard R. Stevenson Jr., Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $99,909.00
Abstract:
CTI proposes to develop a Class B Automatic Identification System device satisfying two major objectives: hardware cost reduction, so large numbers of smaller boats can be economically equipped; and software enhancement, to convert raw AIS data into decision-quality information, warnings and… More
