  1. Refining Broodstock, hatchery and weaning strategies: Key to the Commercial Culture of the Imperiled Giant Grouper

    SBC: Kona Blue Water Farms, LLC            Topic: 818

    Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. Phase I research marked the first time this species has been reared in the hatchery outside of Southeast Asia. Broodstock nutrition, spawning seasonality and lunar periodicity were defined. ...

  2. Real-time Passive Three-Dimensional (3-D) Imaging and Ranging


    We propose real time, compact hardware implementation and integration of sensors, algorithms, and processing hardware for extracting 3-D imagery and absolute range from visible and/or infrared (IR) images collected from small UAVs or situational awareness sensors. The proposed approach can be used for 3D structure reconstruction, scene interpretation, and 3D visualization. Sensor/ system will use ...

  3. Directing Monopulse Jamming Toward Antenna of Semiactive or Antiradiation Missile

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071214

    This effort will be to develop an electronic attack prototype system, including a scaled target which would simulate the electro-optical signature of a threat missile and include a monopulse antenna and receiver. A test plan and measures of effectiveness will be developed. Testing and evaluation of the system would be conducted.

  4. Noncoherent Dual Platform Advanced Monopulse Countermeasures (AMCs) Standoff Jammer

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF071220

    The recent advance in radar technologies utilizing high speed digital signal processing enabled the self-calibrating AMC jammer as an onboard selfprotection jammer for large standoff jamming and surveillance platforms. The use of noncoherent, cooperative dual-platform AMC jammers allows two separate platforms such as small aircrafts or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to collaboratively jam monopul ...

  5. Radically Designed High Energy Metal-Air Cell for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF071152

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will advance an efficient and lightweight energy storage device for Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) by developing a high energy density lithium-air battery with the new radically designed cell developed in the Phase I. Specifically, the project advances high energy density cells by focusing on increasing the energy density of these cells. Our hi ...

  6. N/A

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This subtopic solicited Phase I R&D for an advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) system that would provide fast-scanning high resolution (3 scans/sec at 1cm-1 resolution), low noise, mid-infrared measurements for characterization of spray flames. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) demonstrated FT-IR emission/transmission (E/T) measurements from the NIST spray combustion faci ...

  7. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  8. Advanced Rain and Dust Erosion Resistant Coating Systems

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Rain and dust erosions on aircraft forward facing surfaces such as leading edges, engine inlets, nose radomes, propeller blades, and antennas are serious problems. Due to increasing optical missile threats more low gloss rain erosion coatings are beingused. Current commercial lusterless gray rain erosion coating failed the rain test within 36 minutes when tested at 500mph under 1

  9. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...

  10. KW Class Fiber Lasers

    SBC: PC PHOTONICS            Topic: N/A

    The double-clad multicore fiber laser has proven to be the most efficient, optically-pumped laser. In Phase I, we have demonstated that phase-locking occurs spontaneously among a group of closely packed single mode fiber lasers configured isometrically ina common cladding. This result suggests that, by using our unique power combining technique developed at PC Photonics Corporation, high power o ...
