  1. Real Time Particle Size and Settling Velocity for In-Situ Monitoring of Deep-Sea Polymetallic Nodule Mining

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: G

    In the coming decade, it is anticipated that deep-sea mining activities will commence throughout the deep ocean, at depths around 4000-6000m. At these depths, vast resources of minerals such as cobalt, copper and nickel, which are needed to produce batteries for electric vehicles for example, are present in the form of baseball-sized rocks called polymetallic nodules lying on the seabed. Collector ...

  3. Manufacturing Ropeless gear to be used in commercial Lobstering/Crabbing and other bottom set fishing industries, use of this gear will reduce entanglement of North Atlantic Right Whales/marine life

    SBC: Crab Raft Inc            Topic: 9204

    The North Atlantic Right Whale and other large marine species have experienced dramatic negative effects by entanglement with bottom set fishing gear. Crab Raft Inc. has developed, tested and demonstrated innovative, truly Rope-Less Fishing Gear, targeted primarily for the Crab and Lobster fishing industries. With no ropes, Crab Raft Inc. Fishing Gear has no entanglement potential. This innovativ ...

  4. Developing Lightning Data Services for Commercial and Public Applications

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 9401

    In this Phase I effort, CFD Research proposes the creation of a lightning services API using data from the GOES-16/17 Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) and the development of valued-added lightning initiation and cessation products. Leveraging CFD Research’s experience in software and API development and atmospheric sciences for lightning research applications, this API will provide a simplif ...

  5. A Blubber or Dorsal Fin Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Phase II goal is to de ...

  6. Advanced Data Management and Mining for BMDS Digital Simulations

    SBC: Nou Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA18011

    Sherlock provides a data mining solution that automates the discovery of correlations and causations between BMDS performance and critical factors within large amounts of missile defense simulation data. The future missile defense simulations will include digital simulations capable of generating orders of magnitude more data than can be handled by the current MDA Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL ...

  7. Spectrally Efficient Linewidth Broadening Techniques and Components for High Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: MDA18013

    EOSPACE proposes to develop innovative concepts and hardware that will enable advanced phase modulation techniques for use in next generation high power fiber laser weapon systems. These phase modulation techniques and hardware will focus on mitigating optical nonlinearities that limit the output power levels of high energy beam combinable fiber laser systems. We also propose dense packaging and i ...

  8. Graphics Processing Unit for Space-based Applications

    SBC: NLogic, LLC            Topic: MDA18015

    In this effort we will develop a concept for the design of a high level assembly focused on radiation hardening a GPU for space based use. While our design minimizes size, weight, and power, its primary goal is GPU survival in missions in the inner Van Allen belt. We will perform modeling, simulations, and analysis of the critical elements of our design to quantify the amount of radiation received ...

  9. Radiation-Hardened Photon-Sensitive LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA18018

    To satisfy the need for a radiation-hardened, 1064-nm laser sensitive, single-photon sensitive ladar camera, with pixel counts of 128 x 128 or more, a proven single-photon linear-mode InGaAs(P)/InAlAs avalanche-photodiode (APD) detector will be integrated with low-noise ladar readout integrated circuits (ROICs), and its performance will be shown compatible with missile defense mission requirements ...

  10. Recoverable and Reusable Air Launch Pallet

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: MDA18023

    Using the current air launch pallet for MDA target air launch missions is an expensive one time use item and is not designed to be recovered or reused for another mission. IERUS proposes to perform an analysis of alternatives of advanced materials and innovative production methodologies to provide an alternative air launch pallet that satisfies program requirements while reducing cost and simplify ...
