  2. DeapSeaVision-AI

    SBC: Synthetik Applied Technologies LLC            Topic: 832

    Marine life entanglement is one of the critical permitting issues that is currently constraining the growth of domestic offshore aquaculture. Synthetik Applied Technologies is proposing to develop a low-cost entanglement detection system for offshore aquaculture operators. The system will use a combination of near real-time satellite imagery, intelligent on-site cameras (both above and below the w ...

  3. Deep Sea Vision AI: Deep Learning-Based Real-Time Marine Animal Detection for Entanglement Mitigation

    SBC: Synthetik Applied Technologies LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to develop and implement a real-time detection and warning system to mitigate marine entanglement events in offshore aquaculture operations. In order to achieve this, we leverage the latest advances in computer vision, deep learning, and real-time object detection to develop a real-time marine life detection, classification and tracking pipeline ...

  4. ElectroDynamic Shield for Prevention of Optical Surface Contamination

    SBC: Poly Adaptive LLC            Topic: 122FR2

    The Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) Automated Track Inspection Program uses optical systems such as cameras or laser-based systems to monitor rail performance throughout the country. These systems are hindered by adverse weather conditions that allow water, dirt and mud to coat their optical components resulting in unwanted maintenance costs. Thus FRA is seeking a low-cost, practical s ...

  5. Advanced Locomotive Energy Storage System

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 121FR3

    At present, trains use various dissipative braking systems to slow and stop, and this significant braking energy is ultimately converted to heat and wasted. APEI, Inc. has proposed a hybrid tender which can capture and reuse a significant fraction of this braking energy (at least 50%). The hybrid tender draws power from the rails using a regenerative braking technique rather than by being electr ...

  6. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  7. SOCOM SOF Combatant Motion Recording and Biofeedback System

    SBC: MEMSense, LLC            Topic: SOCOM02007

    The United States Special Operations Command’s Special Boat Teams are routinely exposed to an environment prone to injury and the long-term effects of repetitive impact stress. The primary cause for injury and long-term degenerative musculoskeletal effects is the repetitive impacts incurred as the MK V and NSW RIB vessels impact the ocean’s surface. The goal of SOCOM02-007 Phase II research is ...

  8. Helmsman's Recording Accelerometer (HRA)

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) require a real time display of appr opriate data to allow the helmsman to access the damage potential to his cargo (equipment/personnel) and support his decision relative to speed and course selection when operating in rough water. Furthermore, maintenance support personnel need quantitative data to support design decisions and maintenance activities. This proposa ...

  9. MARKETING AND ENGINEERING ANALYSIS OF SPVD APPLICATIONS

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATE BOTH CONVENTIONAL AND INNOVATIVE USES FOR THE SELF POWERED VEHICLE DETECTOR (SPVD) AND TO MODIFY THE EXISTING DESIGN, IF REQUIRED, TO MEET THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE NEW APPLICATIONS. THE OVERALL GOAL OF THE PROPOSED SBIR PHASE IEFFORT CAN BE SUBDIVIDED INTO THREE FUNDAMENTAL OBJECTIVES: RESEARCH INTO THE VARIOUS APPLICATIONS OF SPVD TECHNOLOGY AND ...

  10. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...
