  1. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  3. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  4. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...

  5. An Optimized Semi-Flush Flasher

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a full prototype next-generation semi-flush flasher system for airport runway approach lighting. Current systems are many years old and inefficient; airports need inset flashers to add runway length and more efficiently use strictly limited land allocations. An inset flasher is proposed that is optimized both optically and electrically. A flasher fixture based on the P ...

  7. An Optimized Semi-Flush Flasher

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Lightweight structures are demanding for high inach vehicles and engine exhaust impinged structures subjected to high temperatures. Currently used polyimide composites have limited service temperatures whereas titanium alloys have much higher densities than those of advanced composites. This Phase I research proposes the processing of high temperature sandwich structures using micro ...

  8. COMPREHENSIVE INTRMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION VISUAL DATABASE

    SBC: Reebie Associates            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE VALUE OF DELIVERING INTERMODAL FREIGHT DATA TO A WIDE VARIETY OF TRANSPORTATION PLANNERS; FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND ULTIMATELY SOME PRIVATE SECTOR USERS. THE PROJECT'S CHALLENGE IS TO MAKE DATA ACCESSIBLE IN TERMS OF THE USER'S ABILITY TO INTERACT WITH VARIOUS SOURCES AND DEPTHS OF INFORMATION AND THE SYSTEM'S ABILITY TO BE TIME RESPONSIVE. THE FACT THAT THE DATA ...

  9. OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS OF OCEANIC DATA FOR COAST GUARD TRAJECTORY MODELS

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: N/A

    THE COAST GUARD USED VELOCITY FIELDS FROM VARIOUS OCEAN CIRCULATION MODELS TO PROVIDE INPUT INTO TRAJECTORY MODELS WHICH ARE USED IN SEARCH PLANNING TO DETERMINE SEARCH AREA MOVEMENT. STATISTICAL TECHNIQUES (CALLED OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS), WHICH ARE APPLICATIONS OF THE GAUSS-MARKOV THEOREM, ARE USED BY THE OCEANOGRAPHIC MODELING COMMUNITY TO COMBINE OBSERVATION DATA WITH DYNAMICAL MODELS TO PROVIDE AC ...
