  1. Head-Up Display for Mariners

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed NOAA SBIR Project will demonstrate the feasibility of a low-cost Head-Up Display (HUD) for mariners, that will display 2 and 3-dimensional navigation and nautical chart data. The capabilities of the Phase 1 HUD system will be based on operational requirements determined during the NOAA SBIR research phase. The proposed HUD requirements of other classes of ships and marine craft wil ...

  2. Demonstrate the Feabibility of Building an AWIPS-Based System Grid with Weather Ontonology Capabilities

    SBC: Fairfield Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The AWIPS (Advanced Weather Information Processing System) program is a cornerstone element supporting NWS' mission to protect life and property and enhance the national economy. The challenge of this project is to help NWS harness large amounts of unused computer resources and underutilized data, improve collaboration and cooperation to solve complex problems not currently addressable, to increas ...

  3. Surface Selective Chiral Detection: A New Metrology Technique

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    The near chiral purity of the biosphere leads to a vast array of chiro-specific physiological responses. This chiro-specificity, in turn, gives rise to the need for the manufacturing of enantiomerically pure chiral chemicals, such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals, food additives, pigments, etc. Critical to the efficacy of both chiro-specific biology and chiro-synthesis/separation are the interfacial ...

  4. Compact, Turnable Diode Laser for Water-Vapor Spectroscopy

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a compact external cavity stabilization system, which will employ independent electro-optic control over the optical path length of the cavity and a wavelength-selective element. The system should be able to cover a 30 nm range and give mode-hop-free tuning over 20 nm intervals. The design of the feedback system will be compatible with any commercially available laser diode from 63 ...

  5. Low-Cost Night Vision System for High-Speed Vessel Operations

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    On this program, we will design, fabricate and test of a novel wide field-of-view night-vision system for use by coxswains and crewmembers during night intercepts. The system is capable of providing the visual acuity, depth perception and situational awareness necessary for high-speed boat maneuvers and allows the operator to see the sea state at night, safely maneuver a high-speedboat and pursue ...

  6. Intrinsic Distributed Fiber Optic Leak Detection

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: N/A

    Monitoring and inspection of pipelines are essential for optimal operation of the energy infrastructure of the nation. However, methods that are currently used for pipeline inspection and diagnostics are typically either slow, do not provide high spatial resolution, suffer from excessive false-alarms, or are not real-time. Development of a system for the real-time monitoring of pipelines to dete ...

  7. Chemically Active Fruit Label for the Visual Estimation of Fruit Ripeness

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Certain fruits do not change color as they ripen and hence it may be difficult for consumers to select fruit that is ready to eat. Melons and winter pears are examples of fruit that is difficult to select. Most fruit is now individually labeled and this project will develop a label that will change color as the fruit approaches ripeness. This colorimetric label will provide ...

  8. A2a Adenosine Receptors and Equine Sepsis


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This is a phase I SBIR proposal by Adenosine Therapeutics for 6 months of support to synthesize and evaluate novel compounds as agonists of equine A2A adenosine receptors. Some of these compounds have been found to be very effective in reducing rodent mortality form endotoxin or from E. coli-induced sepsis. Circulating endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide) is correlated with the pr ...

  9. An Automated Fish Migration Pattern Monitoring System Using Shape Descriptors for Pattern Recognition

    SBC: Agris-Schoen Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fish ecology and environmental research scientists have an urgent need for an automated fish recognition system for monitoring fish migration patterns. Many fish species are known to travel for great distances during their life cycle. As they travel past dams equipped with a fish passage, their species, size, total number, and the time are recorded for migration pattern stud ...

  10. Peer-to-Peer VolP Link for Radio Interoperability, Fire Management, and Security


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Wildfires could cost the US $2 billion in 2002, as over 6 million acres and 650 structures have burned. Eighteen people have died. Fire fighters require instant verbal exchanges with state, tribal, military, National Guard, and local public safety organizations that provide the initial response to 90% of wildfires. Unfortunately, USFS radios cannot talk directly with radios ...
