  1. 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 ...

  2. Battery-Powered, Portable Oxygen Generator for Injured Soldiers

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: DHP15010

    There is an important need for lightweight, reliable, portable oxygen generators to stabilize soldiers injured in the field prior to being brought into field hospitals. Injuries sustained in the field with significant bleeding lack readily available blood replacement or compressed oxygen which can lead to permanent disability or death. It is well known that high-purity oxygen can be used as a trea ...

  4. Development of a field-appropriate biosensor for detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection

    SBC: NANORETE, INC.            Topic: OSD11H05

    Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) that primarily affects the lungs. Approximately one third of the world"s population is latently infected with Mtb and at risk for developing active TB disease. Mtb grows slowly with visible growth appearing on solid media in 3 to 6 weeks. Automated broth systems requires a minimum of 9 days. Currently used rapid diagnostic a ...

  5. Development of a Novel Cryostasis Cocktail for High Subzero Banking of Human Organs

    SBC: Sylvatica Biotech, Inc.            Topic: DHP15013

    The technical objective of this Phase 1 proposal is to develop a non-toxic, multi-component, next generation cryostasis cocktail. We seek to develop a unique, holistic and non-toxic approach to bank human organs for several weeks up to a few months. Our approach is based on using the best strategies employed by freeze-tolerant and hibernating animals in nature and then augmenting them with complem ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  10. 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 ...
