  1. Construction and Testing of a Spar Feeding System for an Offshore Aquaculture Farm

    SBC: Cates International, Inc.            Topic: 845

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to add telemetry and monitoring equipment to the spar designed and constructed under our Phase I contract. Furthermore, we propose to test and evaluate an automated spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. C Cates International, Inc. has developed a feeding system for it¿s underwater cages that functions from a small boat. But ...

  2. Low-Cost Atmospheric Turbulence Measurement Platform

    SBC: GSSL, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Current turbulence measurements are limited to pilot reports and measurements along a specific vertical or horizontal trajectory. Aside from the high cost, these methods do not provide information on turbulence patches, their size or persistence. This proposal combines emerging sensor instrumentation with new balloon technology to produce a balloon-borne, low cost Atmospheric Turbulence Measurem ...

  3. Microwave Data Telemetry for Marine Container Security

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: HSB041005

    IR Telemetrics builds microwave telemetry systems for transmitting sensor data through narrow metallic passages within automobile engines. IRT devices can interface with sensors and transmit their data to a local receiver network through complex passages as small as four centimeters. Research will adapt IRT core technology to enable continuous communication with marine containers. The performance ...

  4. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobil ...

  5. A Prototype Fish Metrology System for Open-Ocean Aquaculture

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 845

    Open-ocean aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several refinements this technology must undergo in order to maximize productivity. One of the specific areas of refinement is in gathering detailed statistical knowledge of the captive fish stock population as a function of time. This knowledge will allow optimization of feed rates. Optimized feed rates will mini ...

  6. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...

  7. Stand-Off Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy Detection of Concealed Weapons and Explosives

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop the design for a stand-off active terahertz imaging and spectroscopy system prototype for the detection of concealed threats at ranges up to 50 meters. Terahertz imaging has the potential to reveal concealed explosives; metallic and non-metallic weapons (such as ceramic, plastic or composite guns and knives); flammables; biological agents; chemical weapons and other threats. ...

  8. An Enhanced: Lower Power, Higher Efficiency, Concentrator Design

    SBC: Digital Flow Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Two primary efforts define the DFTI (Digital Flow Technologies, Inc.) response to the HSARPA requirements to develop a lower cost, more efficient, high (1000 liters/min) volume flow rate concentrator that requires lower power than the extant concentrator designs. The first of these is to create an operational ¿¿pre-concentrator¿¿ that will deliver a jet flow of air-plus-particles with ...

  9. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...

  10. Ultrafast Compact Laser Source for Non-Linear Optical Diagnostics

    SBC: CLARK-MXR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to develop compact, reliable lasers producing intense (millijoule) femtosecond pulses at high repetition rates. These lasers will be designed to operate in industrial environments and will be ideally suited for non-linear optical diagnostics. During the Phase I we will demonstrate that diode-pumped fiber lasers can generate reliably ultrashort pulses, and that their ...
