  1. Construction and Testing of a Spar Feeding System for an Offshore Aquaculture Farm

    SBC: Cates International, Inc.            Topic: 845

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to add telemetry and monitoring equipment to the spar designed and constructed under our Phase I contract. Furthermore, we propose to test and evaluate an automated spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. C Cates International, Inc. has developed a feeding system for it¿s underwater cages that functions from a small boat. But ...

  2. Full Spectrum Complete IOP Instrument Suite

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: 821

    In the Phase I effort, we developed conceptual designs and methods for novel oceanographic optical instruments that measure a complete set of water inherent optical properties across the full visible spectrum at high spectral resolution. One instrument is a new type of in-situ absorption meter that maintains high accuracy over a wide range of water optical properties, from the clearest waters to ...

  3. An Interactive CD-ROM for Farsi Language Learning

    SBC: US Teach, Inc.            Topic: 84017S

    The U.S. and many other industrial countries face a growing need for second language and cultural awareness training for business and industry. Reliance on English is no longer sufficient for trade in the world market, since the most important markets for American goods and services are non-English-speaking areas, especially in growing countries in Asia and the Middle East. In recent years there h ...

  4. Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: S302

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation has demonstrated the feasibility of a new type of electric propulsion device dubbed the Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster (MVAT). This thruster is itself a variant on the Vacuum Arc Thruster that has been demonstrated via a recently concluded Phase I SBIR contracts from NASA. The VAT was verified to be a throttleable low mass (ca. 150g) high efficiency ...

  5. Grid Computing for Commercial Applications

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: N/A

    3DGeo will implement a graphical user interface (GUI) built on top of the Globus Toolkit 3.0 (GT3) middleware and complying with the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) standard. This GUI will be a convenient interface for computational resource discovery, computational resource monitoring, and workflow submission to the Grid. These features will be built into 3DGeo?s Java-based INSP system - ...

  6. Carbon Based Aerogel Composites for Radiation Shielding

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The prime objective of this proposal is to develop a multi-functional sandwich composite material design to fulfill current needs for non-parasitic, lightweight, high-strength, thermally insulating and effective radiation shielding materials for deep space exploration applications. The phase II program will further improve and characterize the mechanical, physical and radiation protection properti ...

  7. Development of a Rugged, Fuel Tank Compatible, Oxygen Concentration Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: A102

    The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to transfer proven sensor technology from the laboratory breadboard to a functional flight-ready prototype for installation in an aircraft fuel tank. In the Phase I effort, a novel spectroscopic technique was shown to be an effective method for measuring oxygen concentration in harsh environments with sufficient accuracy for use in an OBIGGS system. ...

  8. High Power Platform for the Stretched Lens Array

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: H310

    The Stretched Lens Array SquareRigger (SLA-SR) solar array is based on the combination of two cutting edge technologies, the SquareRigger solar array structure and the SLA optics/PV-blanket assembly. The combined SLA-SR system produces an extremely lightweight (>330 W/kg BOL near term and ~500 W/kg BOL mid term), high efficiency, high power (10kW to 100kW+), high voltage (100VDC to 1000VDC) and l ...

  9. New Structures for Large Sensor Array Platforms

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Second-order Augmentation of Lattice Trusses (SALT) is a unique configuration that promises to alleviate many constraints on the design of large deployable space structures, enabling more mass and packaging-efficient structures due to the effect of multi-tiered (higher-order structural hierarchy) latticing. In the Phase I SBIR study, ABLE Engineering performed analyses, design studies and testing ...

  10. Low Cost/Mass Electrostatically Clean Solar Array (ESCA) System

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ABLE ESCA designs use flight proven materials/processes to create an ideal ESCA system that yields low cost, low mass, high reliability, high power density, and is adaptable to any cell type, coverglass thickness, and panel contour. The successfully completed Phase 1 program has proven concept feasibility for two ABLE ESCA designs (baseline and optional technologies). These ESCA designs have b ...
