  1. Novel Acoustic Materials for Passive Hearing Protection

    SBC: COMMET LLC            Topic: SB103006

    A bi-stable meta-material which rejects high amplitude harmful sound but transfers sound levels needed for the situation awareness is proposed. A threshold intensity of the sound is determined by the material design and is set to 90 dBA all signals exceeding this level will be attenuated at least at 25 dB. More specifically, the material is composed by meta-structural elements having two stable s ...

  2. Design Tools For Highly Regular Circuit Geometries

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB102003

    Silicon Technologies, Inc. proposes to revolutionize Semiconductor Deep sub micron design capabilities by creating a new design tool called PLUG (Physical Logic Using Gratings). PLUG will be used to design analog and digital systems at 45 nanometers and below that will improve the productivity of designers while using the highly regular manufacturing techniques where the interconnect is done usin ...

  3. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...

  4. 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 ...
