  1. Developing Regional GIC Hazard Tools for Power Utility Planning and Operations

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 9302

    Geomagnetically induced current (GIC) hazard is a recognized threat to the United States power system. Federal models to support hazard specification and prediction for critical infrastructure are at an advanced state, including models of space weather, the Earth’s conductive structure, and regional geoelectric field. We propose to use existing NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (NOAA-SWPC) mo ...

  2. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 9201

    Coral transplantation is a primary management option for rehabilitation of degraded reefs. Stabilization (via adhesion, etc.) of transplants on existing reef or artificial substrates notably improves their survival rate. Improved underwater adhesives are needed for expedient and convenient stabilization of coral transplants with improved survival rate. A new hybrid organic-inorganic adhesive is pr ...

  3. A Tide To Table Traceability and Marketing System for Shellfish Aquaculture.

    SBC: Shellfish Solutions            Topic: 9101

    In 2017 the CDC estimated 35,000 American got sick from Vibrio parahaemolyticus transmitted by shellfish--a 54% increase. However, according to the co-chair of the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Commission, “Our current system of traceback is inadequate.... Records are lost. Handwriting is illegible. More than half of all traceback investigations fail because the information in the value chain ...

  4. OPEN WORLDS NOAA Portal

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: 9302

    Many people recognize how critical it is to understand our weather, climate, and environment. Educators already use NOAA data and models in working with students and their communities as part of their teaching and outreach. With the exponential growth in data, however, many of them struggle with accessing and managing that data. Evolving data formats and computing requirements make it very challen ...

  5. Faster Optical Modem for Underwater Data Acquisition

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: NGA182001

    To address NGA’s requirements, Sonalysts’ team of world-class experts in underwater optical communication proposes development and implementation of the Precision Optical Navigation Transceiver for Undersea Systems (PONTUS). PONTUS will transfer navigation information from an Underwater Navigation Beacon (UNB) to an Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) in an electromagnetic-spectrum-denied (e.g., G ...

  6. Asynchronous Active 3D Imaging

    SBC: SCIX3 LLC            Topic: NGA183001

    Recent advances in LiDAR, detector, and airborne systems technology have opened the door to small, high-performance, and significantly lower-cost alternatives over currently deployed airborne LiDAR imaging systems. CSLabs’ proposed initiative leverages modeling and simulation (M&S) to evaluate the efficacy of new approaches with the potential to disrupt the existing LiDAR imaging paradigm. Where ...

  7. Automating the Semantic Labeling of Trajectory Data

    SBC: Intelligent Models Plus Inc.            Topic: NGA191006

    Advances in location-acquisition and mobile computing techniques have generated massive spatiotemporal trajectory data, which represent the mobility of a diversity of moving objects, such as people, vehicles, and animals. Moreover, recent research has tabbed learning of how to automatically explain and anticipate both the observable and abstract trajectories as one of the likely keys to building t ...

  8. Improved detection sensitivity, geolocation accuracy, and create novel GEOINT products for OTHR radar systems (IGOR)

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: NGA191008

    Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR) has been a deployed capability for over 3 decades. OTHR uses the ionosphere to reflect HF radar signals in order to illuminate objects (potential targets) beyond the horizon, giving it a potential effective range of several hundred to a few thousand kilometers. Understanding how the HF radar signals interact and reflect off the ionosphere is crucial to accurate target ...

  9. Multi-hop processing for OTHR range extension (MOHAIR)

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: NGA191011

    Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR) has been a deployed capability for over 3 decades and uses the ionosphere to reflect HF radar signals in order to illuminate objects (potential targets) beyond the horizon, giving it a potential effective range of several thousand kilometers. This range is impressive, but it assumes/takes advantage of only one bounce off of the ionosphere. The capability to take advan ...

  10. Under Keel Clearance Management in Support ofPrecision Navigation

    SBC: W R SYSTEMS LTD.            Topic: 828

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: WR’s approach involves design of a modular, S-129 compliant Under Keel Clearance - Risk Management System (UKC-RMS). This will allow for the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), ECS, PPUs, and other situational awareness applications to have S-129 Exchange Sets developed for a planned route.In WR’s design, a system such as an ECDIS generates an S40X Rout ...
