  1. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...

  2. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  3. Durable Aerosol and Liquid Repellent coatings

    SBC: HygraTek LLC            Topic: CBD161002

    Chemical and biological (CB) warfare agents are a serious threat to our soldiers and national security. Different warfare agents and microbes may be delivered using solids (powders, particulates, ice crystals), hydrosols (air borne liquid droplets), or aerosols (air-born particulates). Solids, hydrosols, or aerosols can penetrate, accumulate, and transport through both porous and non-porous surfac ...

  4. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  5. Detection of"active"biological toxins by exploiting native binding specificities

    SBC: Binergy Scientific Inc.            Topic: CBD14101

    A chemical threat agent mode of action is often initiated through a selective interaction with a biological molecule or structure. The agent binding mimics normal cellular processes, but then overruns natural control mechanisms leading to toxic and even lethal effects. The binding may be used as a basis for sensing the agent. By exploiting the native binding mechanism, a sensing element can be des ...

  6. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...

  7. Offshore Wind Energy Resource Siting

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 911SG

    Over the last decade, it has been noted that offshore wind energy resource development could prove extensively valuable in many areas of our nation’s growth, including continued diversification of our energy supply, more options for cost-competitive electricity in coastal and Great Lakes regions, and economical stimulation through new and lasting infrastructure development. The challenges associ ...

  8. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...

  9. In vitro Models Suitable for High-throughput Screening of Drug Toxicities in Human Tissues

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: CBD10103

    The drug R&D cycle is long and very expensive. In many ways, this status quo can no longer be sustained. One of the reasons for such great cost is that the vast majority of drug candidates are screened out at the stages of animal and human trials. More efficient methods of testing of drugs at the stage of ex-vivo studies, which are substantially less expensive than animal and human testing cyc ...

  10. Electrostatic, non-fluorescent trigger for aerosolized biological threats using fluctuation enhanced sensing.

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: CBD09109

    The objective of this Phase I proposal is to perform a theoretical exploration of the fundamental and practical limits of detection by fluctuation enhanced sensing and statistical inference based sensing methods when applied to an electrostatic-based trigger for non-fluorescent biological warfare threats. To enable < 1000 ACPLA detection levels of bacterial spores in real-time, these statistical ...
