  1. Space weather-based position error maps for TEC- OnLine (SpoT-On)

    SBC: SPACE ENVIRONMENT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 831

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The Space weather-based Position error maps for TEC - On-line (SpoT-On) project will use GPS-GNSS based TEC data, integrated into the Global Assimilation of Ionospheric Measurements (GAIM) operational system at the Utah State University Space Weather Center to produce an order of magnitude improved TEC position correction maps. These will be publicly and globally accessible. A ...

  2. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor in ...

  3. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range 4- 5.5 MHz Coastal HF Radars

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The U.S. High Frequency Radar (HFR) network contains more than 140 coastal stations that provide hourly two-dimensional coastal surface currents. Approximately one-third of these are Long Range (LR) systems that transmit in the 4–5.5 MHz frequency band with offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 6 km, respectively. Currents provided by this network have numerous ap ...

  4. Low Cost, High Precision Water Monitoring System

    SBC: Swift Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: This paper proposes development of a low-cost water monitoring system wirelesslynetworked to upload data to FieldKit for cloud based data visualization and validation. This will enable citizen scientists to collect a variety of parameters including conductivity, temperature, depth, and ocean noise measurements on an adhoc basis while contributing to a large data repository whic ...

  5. Adaptive mask flow photometer

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used t ...

  6. Design of an Autonomous, Green Powered, Mobile Coastal Monitor

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 821

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The mobile coastal monitor project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a Proof of Concept demonstration craft. The Proof of Concept demonstrator will be a geometrically scaled version of the craft designed during Phase I. The Phase I craft, the Advanced Coastal Monitor (ACM) was designed to use state-of-the-art green power supplies and apply them as the ...

  7. High-Sensitivity, Miniaturized CO Sensor for Airborne Use on Small UAVs

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 835R

    The team of Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI), TruWeather Solutions, LLC., and Latitude Engineering, LLC. propose to develop a novel, high sensitivity, fast response, solid state, electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor system for use in small UAVs which is capable of PPB level atmospheric measurements. The sensor is based on a thick film multi-element potentiometric micro sensor approach which has bee ...

  8. Capillary Absorption Spectrometer for In-Situ, Underwater Gas Analysiss

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 826R

    We will produce a prototype Capillary Absorption Spectrometer (CAS) capable of measuring dissolved methane in water. The concept utilizes mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy within a hollow fiber optic capillary that both confines a gas sample and acts as an optical waveguide. A tunable laser beam propagates through the hollow fiber to a detector with near unity overlap between the beam and ...

  9. Tofu-tolerant mariculture: Genomics-Assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Reliance on fishmeal and fish oil is a significant constraint to aquaculture expansion in America, and globally. As U.S. marine fish farming expands, genetic improvements could increase economic performance and decrease ecological footprint. This is critically important to sustainability, scalability and profitability of the industry, and is key to attracting capital investment. Commercial opportu ...

  10. BE-ROVER Benthic Environment-ROV Extensible Robotrmingar System)

    SBC: Robo Nautica, LLC            Topic: 821N

    There is currently no low-cost, high performance minimally invasive, bottom-crawling ROV system for monitoring coastal and littoral benthic environments which is also deployable by a single marine researcher. Such a system augmenting divers’ observations would greatly expand the quantity and quality of data critical to managing coastal environments and preserving the economic benefits derived by ...
