  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 ...

  4. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  5. Diver Physiological Monitoring (DPM) System with Integrated Head Mounted Display (HMD) and AComms

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SOCOM11002

    Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) in collaboration with Ocean Technology Systems (OTS) will develop a diver physiological monitoring (DPM) system with integrated microdisplay that easily retrofits with existing full face masks (FFM) and that leverages commercial-off-the-shelf biometric sensors. The capability to quantitatively evaluate and assess a remote diver"s status will significantly imp ...

  6. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...

  7. High Speed Combatant Craft Automated Ride Control

    SBC: Naiad Dynamics US Inc.            Topic: SOCOM10005

    The development of an automated ride control system for high speed combatant craft is critical to reducing the motions that cause injury to crew and damage to craft and equipment. Ancillary benefits include reduced fuel consumption for improved range of operation and the reduction of wake signature. The objective of this research project is to continue the successful development of ride control ...

  8. Compact, Efficient Motor Controllers with Active Noise Cancellation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SOCOM09005

    Most commercial motor controllers (MC’s) operate at relatively low switching frequency that produces a detectable acoustic signature and therefore drives the Navy to procure MC’s operating at higher frequencies in order to reduce acoustic signature. These custom MC’s, however, still generate significant noise, are not sufficiently reliable, and have obsolete components. APS will develop an i ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
