  1. Web-Based Tools and Databases for Multi-Hazard Contingency Plans and Ongoing Management of Natural Marine Sanctuaries

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 847

    An on-line GIS-oriented management and planning system for four National Marine Sanctuaries will be designed. It will contain static databases of physical, chemical, biological, geological, cultural, historical and archeological information of value to Sanctuary managers. It will link with ongoing oceanographic and meteorological monitoring systems to allow near real time access to their data. ...

  2. Fluorescence Imager for Rapid Estimates of the Distribution and Abundance of Coral Recruits

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 831

    New methods are needed to help marine scientists conduct studies of the processes limiting or promoting coral recruitment and survivorship. The small size and low visual contrast of coral recruits in natural settings make them difficult to impossible to locate efficiently. Many coral recruits contain strongly fluorescent pigments, and viewed in the proper way this fluorescence dramatically incre ...

  3. Inexpensive Submersible Long-Term Dissolved Oxygen Recorder

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase II SBIR Project to complete the development of an inexpensive compact optical system for continuous dissolved oxygen monitoring in areas at risk of eutrophication induced by hypoxia and anoxia. The proposed monitor will facilitate the development of improved theoretical models by enabling better data collection with regard to spread and degree of oxyge ...

  4. An Innovative Low-Cost Dropsonde using Integrated Flexible Circuit Design

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 819

    Upper atmospheric measurements of temperature, humidity, pressure and winds are required daily at hundreds of locations around the world to drive numerical weather prediction forecast models. In the US these critical measurements are made by Radiosondes carried aloft by balloons filled with helium and tracked by 104 NWS ground stations. However, data-sparse regions off the west coast can only be a ...

  5. Effective, Low Cost Ethanol Sensor System for Repeat DWI Vehicles, with Wireless "Police Alert" Features

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Alcohol related crashes are a serious public health issue, resulting in an estimated 17,400 deaths and 292,000 injuries in 2003. Giner, Inc. proposes to combine innovative ethanol sensors, sampling techniques and wireless capabilities to provide a novel, inexpensive and convenient law enforcement tool for detecting alcohol use in the vehicles of repeat DWI offenders. The proposed sensor system h ...

  6. Remote sensing system to improve the safet/security, efficiency and effectiveness of Bus Rapid Transit using mini-unmanned aerial vehicles

    SBC: Harman Consulting, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The leading edge of ITS technology is the application of geo-spatial technologies to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, safety and security of transit. Firt came the application of global positioning systems integrated into geographic information systems. Lastly, remotely sensed imagery from high-resolution digital sensors on satellites, and real-time video from mini-unmanned aerial vehicles ...

  7. A New Robust Multiple Pedestrians Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As part of DOT's Intelligent Vehicle Intiative program, the FHWA is developing advanced vehicle safety and driver information systems. Vision-based pedestrian detection in outdoor scenes remains an open challenge. People dress in very different colors that sometimes blend with the background. They wear hats or carry bags, and stand, walk and change direction unpredictably. The background is variou ...

  8. Processing of Poultry Manure for Fuel Gas Production

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

    Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies. The technology for conversion of poultry manure into fuel gases by using heat can be integrated with internal combustion (IC) engines, microturnines, or fuel cells and have widespread agricultural us ...

  9. Passive Self-Regulating Denitrification Technology for Aquaculture

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Commercial-scale marine aquaculture has the potential to close the gap between an increasing demand for high quality seafood products and marine fisheries near maximum sustainable yields. In flow through aquaculture systems, the release of nitrate to nearby streams, lakes, etc. can be detrimental to the ecology of the receiving water body. Similarly, in recirculating aquaculture and/or aquarium sy ...

  10. Development of a Closed Loop Recycling System for CCA-Treated Wood

    SBC: Arnold Forest Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal details a research program to investigate the potential of a CCA-treated wood recycling system based on liquefied wood technology. Liquification converts wood to a viscous liquid by using organic reagents and low temperatures. This CCA removal technology will liquify CCA-treated wood in the presence of organic solvents at a mild temperature with an acidic catalyst.
