  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. Self-Contained Sub Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 812N

    The goal of this project is to develop, prototype, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, survey, and structural health monitoring application. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages publically available GNSS reference data from exis ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Rapid and Low-Cost Field Toxin Analysis to Monirot Harmful Algal Blooms

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 812N

    During the harmful algal blooms (HAB), marine algal toxins reach concentrations high enough to cause various neurological and gastrointestinal disorders through inhalation of the toxin or consumption of contaminated shellfish. Brevetoxins, produced by dinoflagellate Karenia brevis, are known to disrupt neurological processes to cause an illness called neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The timely rec ...

  6. Supporting Local Decision Making through a Comprehensive Community Driven Data Tool

    SBC: Industrial Economics, Incorporated            Topic: 851X

    A central part of NOAA’s mission is to develop and distribute scientific data, including large-scale climate, weather, marine, and coastal information for regional and national analysis. NOAA has also developed local data gathering tools on an as-needed basis. While these approaches demonstrate the power of local data collection, no existing tool meets the broad needs of environmental community ...

  7. Miniature High-Altitude Precision Navigation Alternative

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF121091

    ABSTRACT:Todays advanced precision guided weapons rely on GPS/INS-based solutions to provide accurate navigation data, enabling the munition to adjust its path to reach the target.While this approach is effective when GPS is available, new approaches are needed that can achieve accurate navigation when operating in a GPS-denied environment.In response, vendors are developing new navigation-aiding ...

  8. Group 4-5 UAS integration of terminal area sensors & operations in the terminal area for Airborne Sense and Avoid

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF131131

    ABSTRACT:Integration of track data from Ground Based Sense and Avoid (GBSAA) and Airborne Sense and Avoid (ABSAA) systems offer the possibility of significantly improved terminal airspace tracks because they often have complementary sensing geometries and measurement error statistics.Under Phase 1, Systems & Technology Research (STR) demonstrated a multi-hypothesis tracking and fusion capability t ...

  9. SMART Bandage for Monitoring Wound Perfusion

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141005

    ABSTRACT: Continuous supply of oxygen to the tissue is essential for wound healing and resistance to infection. Oxygen provides the additional energy source for the repairing process. In the early stage of wound repair, fibroblasts start to migrate, divide, and produce collagen. To promote fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis, oxygen must be present in sufficient quantities. Angiogenes ...

  10. Dimensional Evaluation of Aircraft Fuel Cells

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF141209

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft fuel cells are flexible rubber-coated fabric enclosures for the containment of fuel within aircraft cavities. The overall envelope dimensions and locations of interface fittings and attachment elements such as lacing ferrules and hanger baskets are critical to the proper function and durability of the fuel cells. The existing method of dimensional inspection is to install the f ...
