  1. Developing and Improving Commercial Marine Algal Culture in the United States

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Maine Fresh Sea Farms (MFSF) will build a multi-species, multi-season prototype farm with the goal of having crops of fresh sea vegetables available throughout the year. What isn’t utilized fresh will be dried for longer-term storage and used in other products. Our team will gather data on water quality, nutrients, light levels, and hydrodynamics to assemble profiles of key parameters that deter ...

  2. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  3. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  4. Universal In-Ear Warfighter Monitoring System (1002-062)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N131012

    Job related hearing loss is a growing issue with active and retired military personnel. Ear protection is critical to prevent such injury, but personnel in variable pressure environments, such as pilots, often cannot use the best hearing protection due to pressure changes risking barotrauma. Current physiological monitoring systems can measure in-ear pressure levels, but require customized ear pie ...

  5. GhostSwimmer: Tactically Relevant, Biomimetically Inspired, Silent, Highly Efficient and Maneuverable Autonomous Fish Robot

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: N08T030

    Boston Engineerings proposed project significantly increases the Navys capabilities by providing a technology that performs superbly in tactically critical littoral and VSW applications currently unaddressed. We propose to advance the existing technology readiness level (TRL) by combining our GhostSwimmer AUV with actuation, sensing, payload, and processing technology as applicable. Our proposed p ...

  6. Real time classification of sea mines using MIRK processing in Fleet MCM sonars

    SBC: PROMETHEUS INC            Topic: N131037

    The goal of the material identification reflectivity kernel (MIRK) MCM SBIR Phase II project is to demonstrate the capabilities of MIRK algorithms and software to improve the performance of existing MCM sonars by significantly reducing the number of false target calls that need to be investigated during the identification process. The Phase II efforts will focus on exploiting sonar returns to allo ...

  7. Retractable Advanced Mooring System (RAMS)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N122129

    Retractable mooring fixtures are a critical component on the flight deck of a DDG51 class Navy ship. The chocks and bitts must be recessed below the deck level for helicopter operations, while reliably and easily deployed for mooring situations. The current mooring fixtures do not stand up to the highly corrosive environment of the flight deck and the lack of maintenance reduces the reliability of ...

  8. A Lightweight Optical Approach to Detect Incipient Heat Damage

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N131013

    Composite materials, widely used in aircraft, reduce manufacturing cost, improve structural performance, and boost fuel efficiency. However, composites are susceptible to hidden heat damage, which may occur from fire, exhaust impingement, overheating, or during repairs. The earliest heat damage stage, referred to as incipient heat damage, may reduce upper use temperature, cause matrix mass loss, a ...

  9. Tunable Nanoscale UltraViolet Absorer Particle Technology

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N132100

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) has developed a nanoparticle chaff that yields an ultraviolet (UV) light absorbing cloud upon dissemination from a center burster cartridge. During the Phase I program we utilized UV extinction data, Mie Scattering calculations and cloud radiance models to optimize both the chemistry and particle size for the UV absorbing material. We have demonstrated chaff cloud for ...

  10. Gallium Nitride Based Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Technology for High Altitude Periscope Detection

    SBC: Custom Mmic Design Services, Inc.            Topic: N132095

    Phase 2 contract will result in the development of a C-band PA and LNA with enhanced performance over existing products. The use of innovative topologies and lumped element layouts will result in a 50% reduction in die size. This reduction coupled with the use of yield enhancing current mirrors will drastically reduce the cost of the elements needed for these phased arrays.
