  1. Automated Analysis of Fisheries Information from Digital Stills

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 821F

    Toyon proposes development of a system which performs automated analysis of images for fish population monitoring and fishing regulation enforcement application. The proposed system is capable of processing images collected from autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), as well as images collected using electronic monitoring (EM) cameras used to observe fish catc ...

  2. Rapid Lateral Flow Assay for Field Detection of Brevetoxins

    SBC: Epicentre Technologies Corporation            Topic: 812N

    The bloom-forming algae Karenia brevis produces neurotoxins known as brevetoxins (PbTx) that can cause illness in humans and marine wildlife. During K. brevis blooms, also known as red tides, elevated levels of brevetoxins have been linked to massive bird, fish, and marine mammal kills. In addition, human consumption of brevetoxin contaminated shellfish leads to neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The ...

  3. The X-3D Array: An Affordable Three Dimensional, High Speed, Towed Hydrophone Array

    SBC: BIOWAVES, INC.            Topic: 821F

    We proposed to test, design, and modify an existing ‘X-Array’ tetrahedral (3-D) hydrophone array prototype and design with the ultimate goal of developing a production prototype called the ‘X-3D Array’. We will analyze field data collected previously from the first prototype, conduct hydrodynamic modeling of the array design, and research possible torque imbalances in the tow-cable, and us ...

  4. Development of Genetics-based Selective Breeding Protocols for Improvement of the Mediterranean Mussel, Mytilus galloprovincialis, and Advancement of Aquaculture

    SBC: Catalina Sea Ranch            Topic: 811F

    The problem this proposal seeks to remedy has positive and profound ramifications for the advancement of aquaculture. The aquaculture industry lags in genetically based selective breeding programs when compared to terrestrial commercial crops. This perpetuates our nation’s $11 billion dollar seafood deficit, puts U.S. aquaculture entrepreneurs at a disadvantage for success, and increases risk fo ...

  5. Developing Resilience to Ocean Acidification in Red Abalone Aquaculture

    SBC: Cultured Abalone Farm LLC, The            Topic: 811F

    It is now recognized that the pH of the world’s oceans is becoming more acidic as a consequence of increasing atmospheric CO2. This process, termed “ocean acidification” (OA) will affect the aquaculture of marine shellfish. In order to maintain current levels of commercial mollusk production, the identification and commercialization of resilient shellfish strains will be required. Emerging e ...

  6. Development of Nanosteel Chrome Replacement HVOF Coatings on High Strength Steel Components

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF071322

    ES3 has completed a SBIR Phase I effort of a feasibility study for the research and development of Nano-composite High Velocity Oxygen Fueled (HVOF) coatings for replacement of hard chrome plating on high-strength steel landing gear components.The Phase I work focused on finding an HVOF coating that will be more resistant to spallation when subjected to high-bending stress loads on landing gear co ...

  7. Hyperspectral and Persistent Sensor Signal Processing Platform and Algorithms

    SBC: CG2, Inc., a Quantum3D Company            Topic: AF093101

    ABSTRACT:There is a growing need for timely processing, exploitation, and distribution of sensor data collected by unmanned aerial vehicles to generate actionable intelligence. Challenges exist in producing hardware that is rugged enough to withstand the physical demands of airborne platforms, yet able to deliver significant computing performance within the size, weight and power constraints of sm ...

  8. Decentralized Asset Control for Layered Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF112139

    ABSTRACT:Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a decentralized asset management framework which will provide near-optimal loose cooperative control of diverse assets within the Layered Sensing Architecture. We propose to develop an asset manager which will perform allocation, assignment, vehicle routing, target prediction, and sensor tasking for a heterogeneous collection of assets while ...

  9. Mobile Target Secondary Debris (MTSD)

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: AF121095

    ABSTRACT:The objective of the project is to develop models for secondary debris generated by mobile targets. This includes the vehicle component breakup due to expanding high explosives and primary fragments as well as the associated airblast that propagates into the environment propelling secondary fragments from the vehicle. The overall scope of the project involves developing the computational ...

  10. Weapon Burial Secondary Debris (WBSD)

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: AF121097

    ABSTRACT:Most of the air delivered air force weapons are designed to detonate inside structures.However, due to targeting inaccuracies and other reasons they may land outside a structure and could detonate partially or fully buried in soil.These events could result in collateral damage to people, vehicles in the vicinity.Air force would like to have a fast running capability to assess the risk due ...
