  1. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor in ...

  2. Design of an Autonomous, Green Powered, Mobile Coastal Monitor

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 821

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The mobile coastal monitor project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a Proof of Concept demonstration craft. The Proof of Concept demonstrator will be a geometrically scaled version of the craft designed during Phase I. The Phase I craft, the Advanced Coastal Monitor (ACM) was designed to use state-of-the-art green power supplies and apply them as the ...

  3. Tofu-tolerant mariculture: Genomics-Assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Reliance on fishmeal and fish oil is a significant constraint to aquaculture expansion in America, and globally. As U.S. marine fish farming expands, genetic improvements could increase economic performance and decrease ecological footprint. This is critically important to sustainability, scalability and profitability of the industry, and is key to attracting capital investment. Commercial opportu ...

  4. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Bottom Feeder will be a highly maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), with a tethered operations option and modular sensor bay, to support benthic optical surveys, coral reef mapping and health assessment, and be expandable for future survey operations. It will integrate a low drag hullform, a minimum of four degrees of independent motion control, a highly efficient ...

  5. Enhanced Canine Performance, Protection and Survivability

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM172002

    Oceanit proposes to develop novel nutraceutical and/or pharmaceuticals to enhance important USSOCOM Multi-Purpose Canine (MPC) performance attributes that optimize their performance, improve recovery time when wounded and increase their survivability.

  6. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor individual environment ...

  7. A Stereo Camera System for Measuring Coastal Currents

    SBC: 3SRM INC.            Topic: 844WP

    Inexperienced swimmers are often unaware of the presence of treacherous rip currents and this leads to many drowning deaths each year. Even when signs are posted, the public probably does not clearly understand the danger. It would be more informative if the public were ale to maps of the location, speed, and direction of coastal currents. Ocean safety officials are using various methods to inform ...

  8. Tofu-tolerant Mariculture: Genomics-assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811

    While certain forage fisheries remain sustainable and well-maintained, they clearly are not scalable – to expand domestic marine aquaculture and increase the nation’s seafood security, aquafeed formulations must be adapted to make greater use of sustainable agriculture proteins and oils produced in America’s heartland. Kampachi Farms and University of Nebraska have been working jointly to re ...

  9. A Stereo Camera System for Measuring Coastal Currents

    SBC: 3SRM INC.            Topic: 84

    Rip currents cause multiple drowning deaths each year as swimmers are often unaware of the location and strength of coastal currents. Currently, ocean safety officials do not have an affordable and reliable commercial system which can measure coastal currents. The goal of this Phase I study is to test a stereo camera system to measure the speed, direction, and location of alongshore currents and ...

  10. Geo-registration of Aerial Imagery Using 3-D Volumetric Models

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: NGA11001

    With the advancement of aerial imaging sensors, high quality data equipped with partial sensor calibration models is available. There is a recent research activity in computer vision community that aims to reconstruct 3-d structure of the observed scenes relying on the content of the imagery in fully automated ways. However the research has not matured into robust systems ready for operational set ...
