  4. Remote Release Device for Marine Mammal Electronic Tags

    SBC: Wildlife Computers, Inc.            Topic: N09T029

    Design and evaluate components for a new device for remotely releasing electronic tags that have been attached to marine animals with a focus on a novel approach for the release mechanism. Current methods for releasing tags include corrodible metal pins and mechanical devices for cutting plastic or steel wires. These methods are less reliable because the attachment wires and pins may prematurely ...

  10. Low Maintenance and Low Cost Cryocooler

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: N091051

    Cryocoolers currently in use for High Temperature Superconducting Degaussing (HTSDG) systems onboard Navy ships (Gifford McMahon based) meet the basic performance requirement of 200 W of heat lift at 50°K. However they are inefficient (7.5 kW input power) and prone to frequent maintenance (10,000 hours). Infinia Corporation proposes the development of a maintenance-free, highly efficient practica ...
