  1. Acoustic Propagation Analysis Program for Marine Scientists

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: 819

    The goal of the Phase II project is to develop a prototype of the Marine Acoustic Propagation System (MAPS).  MAPS is a computer system designed in a client-server archi9tecture that provides NOAA marine scientists, who do not have an extensive background in underwater acoustics, with a tool that selects the appropriate acoustic model for estimating underwater propagation loss for anthropogen ...

  2. A Miniaturized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year.  To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered.  As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to continue development of an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use.  The technical innovation i ...

  3. Multiple Digital Camera Mount with FMC

    SBC: Aerial Imaging Solutions            Topic: 817

    NOAA uses large-format aerial film camera systems to collect data for the monitoring of marine mammal populations protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the U.S. Endangered Species Act.  Historically, the major users of these cameras and film have been the military and government mapping agencies.  As these users move to newer technology, manufacturers are ending, or severe ...

  4. Near-IR Differential Absorption Lidar for Automated Water Vapor Profiling

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 832

    Measurement of vertical profiles of H2O vapor density in the troposphere can provide new understanding of H2O vapor mass transport.  Increased density o9f such measurements can improve predictive capability for precipitation in meteorology and can increase our understanding of feedback mechanisms involving the interaction of H2O vapor, radiative balance and precipitation that are important in ...

  5. Digital Imaging of Pipeline Mechanical Damage and Residual Stress

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined.  The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining life.  Empirical relationships between damage features and burst pressure have been developed and ...

  6. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    Automated vehicle counting technology has been in use for many years, but developments in automated pedestrian counting technology have been limited.  Pedestrians are more difficult to detect, track and count, than motor vehicles because their paths are much less constrained.  In Phae I, we propose to develop a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting.  In this sys ...

  7. Fluidmath: A Teaching Intervention for Algebra

    SBC: FLUIDITY SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Research demonstrates that technology-focused interventions to teach math and science require substantive professional development prior to classroom implementation. This project is creating an online professional development (OPD) platform for training teachers to integrate FluidMath into basic algebra practice. FluidMath is a software program that recognizes handwritten math formulae and sketche ...

  9. The Digital Workpad

    SBC: Nimble Assessment Systems            Topic: N/A

    The Digital Workpad allows students to produce handwritten responses to open-ended items presented by a computer-based test. The work pad allows students to show their work for mathematics problems, produce graphs and drawings, label figures, and write short answer responses.

  10. Clothing Worn by Individuals with Visual Impairments as a Hands-Free Common Platform for GPS WayFinding Systems and Obstacle Avoidance Systems.

    SBC: Science, Math, and Engineering, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This project will focus on research and development to provide individuals with visual impairments a clothing-based platform that supports the function of existing Global Positioning Systems (GPS) way finding systems.  The clothing platform will lead to the integration of GPS way finding systems with a clothing-based electronic obstacle avoidance system.  The goal of the project is to pr ...
