  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. 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 ...

  4. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    The Next Generation Equipment Committee (NGEC) developed a standard for specifying the use of an Ethernet based digital train line (DTL) network to replace the COMM line for passenger trains. These specifications are PRIIA 305‐919 Digital Train Line Hardware and PRIIA 305‐920 Digital Train Line Software. The intent Is to eventually allow for the improvement of passenger train control. DTL spec ...

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

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    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 individual environment ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    This project seeks to define the performance requirements for a wireless Digital Train Line (WiDTL) through definition of functionality and performance expected, and translating these into network equipment specifications and architecture that wireless network equipment manufacturers can build towards. The effort will include an in-depth review of wireless technology as it applies to sensitive and ...

  8. Next Generation Freight Truck for Autorack Cars

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR3

    Autorack cars transport one of the most valuable commodities – fully assembled Automobiles. Due to the longer and higher profile of an Autorack and the fact that heavy automobiles are loaded on to high deck levels, freight trucks with improved track-to-vehicle dynamics as well as higher speed capabilities are desired in anticipation of higher speed passenger service and shared corridors. Unique ...

  9. Self-Contained Sub Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 812N

    The goal of this project is to develop, prototype, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, survey, and structural health monitoring application. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages publically available GNSS reference data from exis ...

  10. A Stereo Camera System for Measuring Coastal Currents

    SBC: 3SRM INC.            Topic: 844WP

    Inexperienced swimmers are often unaware of the presence of treacherous rip currents and this leads to many drowning deaths each year. Even when signs are posted, the public probably does not clearly understand the danger. It would be more informative if the public were ale to maps of the location, speed, and direction of coastal currents. Ocean safety officials are using various methods to inform ...
