  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. Solar Roadways

    SBC: Solar Roadways            Topic: 091FH5

    Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with modular Solar Road Panels:  structurally-engineered solar panels that can be driven upon.  The roadway will generate electricity, become our nation's power grid, make all-electric vehicles practical, and transport rainwater to desired locations.  Collecting solar energy for just four hours/day would produc ...

  8. Portable Mid Infrared Analyzer for Onsite Measurement of Nitrate and Organic Matter in Soil

    SBC: WILKS ENTERPRISE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nitrate is an important nutrient for crop production. Soils with excess nitrate amounts and shallow groundwater tables pose a high risk to nitrate leaching into drinking water supplies. A shortage of nitrate decreases agricultural productivity. Measurement of soil nitrate content is a tedious, time consuming, and expensive process. Currently, there are no commercial sensors for in-situ nitrate det ...

  9. Electrochemical Ammonia Monitor for Agricultural Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has identified the need for a practical analytical instrument for the detection of air emissions resulting from animal manure management systems. Based on this very important need, Giner, Inc. proposes to study and evaluate the feasibility of designing and fabricating a simple-to-operate, selective and solid-polymer electrolyte-based, thick-film electro?ch ...

  10. Remote Sensing for Early Detection and Mitigation of Plant Stress and Disease in Florida Citrus

    SBC: DATA STAR, INC            Topic: N/A

    [Situation or Problem] Huanglongbing (HLB), or "Citrus Greening" disease, increasingly raises costs to growers and threatens to impact 100% of Florida citrus acreage by 2016. Early detection and control of this disease is essential to the survival and productivity of the Florida citrus industry. [Purpose] To conduct Proof-of-Concept testing of DATASTAR's remote sensing and GIS approach designed to ...
