  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Virtual Verification Test Bed for Robust Autonomous Software Operation in Complex, Unknown Environments

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) are complex systems that exhibit a broad array of behaviors in a wide range of missions and environments. They can change their behaviors over time so the UAS rigorously tested at the range is not the same as the one operating in the field. Current testing methods are inadequate to verify that they are safe to operate in close proximity with humans. Testing Robust ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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. Non-Invasive, Continuous, Transdermal Glucose Monitor w/Actuator Control

    SBC: ADVANCED SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "AST proposes to develop a non-invasive methodology able to continuously monitor blood glucose concentration. As opposed to employing near infrared spectroscopy, which suffers from the limitations of sensitivity, stability, and repeatability, AST intendsto employ direct measurement of glucose, via amperometric sensors coated with glucose oxidase membranes, from minute amounts of interstitial flui ...
