  1. Vessel Launched Unmanned Aerial System for Marien Debris Detection and Tracking

    SBC: Airborne Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 843

    Airborne Technologies, Inc. Phase I effort will be to design and demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low-cost, marinized Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that can be operated easily from small or large vessels and is capable of reliable and repeatable operations in an ocean environment. The UAS will be utilized for the detecting and tracking of marine debris, sea-life or other objects in the ...

  2. CLASP Phase II: producing a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler Commercial Prototype

    SBC: Green Eyes, LLC            Topic: 814

    In our Phase I test, Green Eyes successfully demonstrated the feasibility of a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler (CLASP) system capable of autonomous operation for one year. The feasibility prototype also incorporated two-way telemetry and near real-time display of processed data. CLASP uses a profiling pump to deliver water to a flow-through multi probe sensor and additional ...

  3. Refining Broodstock, hatchery and weaning strategies: Key to the Commercial Culture of the Imperiled Giant Grouper

    SBC: Kona Blue Water Farms, LLC            Topic: 818

    Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. Phase I research marked the first time this species has been reared in the hatchery outside of Southeast Asia. Broodstock nutrition, spawning seasonality and lunar periodicity were defined. ...

  4. Carbon Nanotube Methods for Molecular Identification of Fish Species

    SBC: Pettit Applied Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 817

    Identification of particular fish species based on specific DNA sequences is not currently time or cost effective, but morphological identification is not always possible during early development stages. The project proposed seeks to develop a microfluidic based approach using DNA hybridization, coupled with a sensitive detection method based on the use of carbon nanotubes to rapidly identify fis ...

  5. Dredged Channel Depth Monitoring

    SBC: SURVICE ENGINEERING COMPANY, LLC, THE            Topic: 844

    The condition of dredged channels in U.S. waterways is ever-changing due to sedimentation, shoaling, and the growing presence of submerged debris. Furthermore, the lack of the most current and accurate subsurface terrain data (specifically, channel depth as a function of position) at the time of a ship¿s transit introduces a level of uncertainty that prevents optimal safety and navigational ef ...

  6. Improved Silicon Drift Detector Coincidence Rejection for Digital Pulse Processors

    SBC: 4pi Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recent emergence of the Silicon Drift detector (SDD), for use in Energy Dispersive x-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), has made possible x-ray event streams with input count rates in the range of 1-10 Mcps. Modern digital pulse processors are therefore required to run at fast time constants to achieve reasonable throughput; however, this causes significant coincidence artifacts to appear in the spectrum ...

  7. RBAC-Based Workflow

    SBC: Virtual Globe, Inc. (Rockwise)            Topic: N/A

    Under this proposal, Virtual Global, Inc. proposes to work with NIST to develop RBAC-BASED WORKFLOW, a workflow system that will use RBAC in a web services model as a form of middleware that can be "packaged" accessed, configured, and reused by integrating with existing trusted RBAC implementations.

  8. DIA: Distributed Information Assurance in Ballistic Missile Defense Systems using Scalable, Distributed Data Mining Technology

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: MDA07039

    This document proposes to develop a Distributed Information Assurance (DIA) system based on the distributed data mining technology for detecting distributed network attacks and identifying attackers’ “signatures” for advanced situational awareness. It will offer the following key capabilities: 1. A multi-agent architecture for linking multiple, heterogeneous network-sensors (e.g., intrusio ...

  9. Self-Corrective Remote Imagery Prediction System (SCRIPS)

    SBC: CAELUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: MDA07033

    The U.S. military has been using satellite IR images to monitor ground missile activities of hostile nations. Successful IR monitoring of ground features requires us to account for the intervening weather conditions that can have an adverse impact on intelligence gathering. The proposed Self-Corrective Remote Imagery Prediction System (SCRIPS) will produce up to 72 hours of forecasts for any bandp ...

  10. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this project is to develop a novel expander that can increase the efficiency of cryocoolers for IR sensors at very low temperatures and in remote cooling and across gimbal applications. Miniature Thermoacoustic Expanders (MTAE) that employ high energy acoustic waves generated with no moving parts at the cold expander to produce efficient cooling over a wide range of temperatures a ...
