  1. Inexpensive Airborne Expandable Ice Buoys (AXIB) Suitable for Marginal Ice Zone Deployment

    SBC: LBI, Inc.            Topic: 838

    The proposed solution provides a low-cost practical air-droppable package for existing polar ice meteorological sensor systems. The buoy package will be configured for deployment from a fixed wing aircraft. Descent is stabilized and slowed by a parachute deployed after launch, and designed for a descent rate of 20 ft/s or less. When deployed on the ice, the buoy will erect to the vertical for o ...

  2. Development of a Submersible Fish Cage for Open Ocean Aquaculutre

    SBC: JPS Industries, Inc.            Topic: 831

    A need exists to develop cost effective and reliable submersible cage technology for exposed aquaculture. The team assembled as part of this SBIR incorporates JPS Industries, Great Bay Aquafarms and the University of New Hampshire. In Phase I, a design will be developed based on concepts known to work in the industry. Concepts to be investigated include a cage constructed around HDPE pipe, with ...

  3. Cross-Layer Optimization for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks Using SCA Compatible Smart Radio

    SBC: SCA Technica, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Homeland Security/First Responder networks require increased bandwidth and reliable connectivity. Future networks such as Project SAFECOM may deploy software-defined radios (SDR) compatible with Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Software Communications Architecture (SCA). We leverage our SCA compatible, high assurance ¿Smart Radio¿ prototype being developed under an AFRL sponsored Phase II ...

  4. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  5. DESIGN OF A HIGH SPEED, HIGH RESOLUTION SIDE SCAN SONAR SYS TEM

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    SIDE SCAN SONAR HAS DEVELOPED TO THE POINT WHERE IT IS NOW AN ACCEPTED PART OF HYDROGRAPHIC CHARTING PROJECTS, AS WELL AS A BROAD RANGE OF OCEAN SEARCH AND SURVEY APPLICATIONS. ONE LIMITATION ON ITS UTILITY, HOWEVER, IS THE REQUIREMENT TO OPERATE THE SYSTEM AT RELATIVELY LOW SPEEDS (5 KNOTS OR LOR LESS) IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE HIGH-QUALITY DATA. ANY INCREASEIN VESSEL SPEED CAPABILITY WOULD RESULT IN G ...

  6. ADVANCED DIESEL ENGINE ENHANCEMENTS

    SBC: Seaworthy Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I WILL EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY INCLUDING COST/BENEFITS OF RETRO-FITTING SHIPBOARD MAIN PROPULSION DIESEL ENGINES WITH ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY COMPONENTS TO INCREASE PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY, AND TO SAVE ON MAINTENANCE, REPAIRS, AND FUEL COST. THESE COMPONENTS WILL BE IN THE AREAS OF CURRENT ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT BY SEAWORTHY AND ARE ADVANCED TURBOCHARGERS, CERAMIC COATING OFENGINE PARTS, A ...

  8. FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS.

    SBC: Springborn Materials Science            Topic: N/A

    FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS. HOWEVER, SMOKE AND TOXIC GAS EVOLUTION IN THE EVENT OF FIRE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM. THE GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO CREATE A FIRE RESISTANT COMPOSITE FOAM STRUCTURE WHICH WILL GENERATE NEGLIGIBLE QUANTITIES OF TOXIC FUMES WHEN EXPOSED TO FI ...
