  1. ADVANCED SYSTEM FOR MINEHUNTING AND OCEANOGRAPHIC REMOTE SENSING

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A NEW APPROACH IS PROPOSED FOR OCEANOGRAPHIC REMOTE SENSING WITH DUAL USE APPLICATIONS IN MINE HUNTING, OCEAN BOTTOM MAPPING, AND SEA FLOOR REMOTE SENSING. THE WEAVER IS A SONAR SYSTEM INTENDED TO DETECT, LOCALIZE, AND CLASSIFY SEAFLOOR BOTTOM LAYING TARGETS, DISCRIMINATING MAN-MADE ITEMS FROM NATURAL ONES IN THE PRESENCE OF NATURAL CLUTTER; IT EXPLOITS HERETOFORE OVERLOOKED TARGET-PHYSICS BASED C ...

  2. Build a Prototype "Grid In A Box" Software Product for NOAA

    SBC: FAIRFIELD TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 817

    Brief Description of Problem: NOAA¿s AWIPS is a cornerstone of NWS¿ forecast mission. As advanced as AWIPS is, it still faces challenges similar to many systems, including: system capacity over-/under-utilization; data and analysis stovepiping; and complex data management needs. Innovations: In Phase 1, FTI successfully demonstrated that grid computing and ontologies could enable communicati ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. AUTONOMOUS DRIVER ALERTNESS MONITOR (ADAM)

    SBC: Macleod Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPORTANT NEED EXISTS IN THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY FOR A RELIABLE, UNOBTRUSIVE DEVICE TO WARN VEHICLE OPERATORS OF REDUCED ALERTNESS. RESEARCHERS SUGGEST THAT 35-50% OF ALL HIGHWAY FATALITIES ARE CAUSED BY MEASURABLE LEVELS OF REDUCED DRIVER ALERTNESS. UNFORTUNATELY TECHNIQUES PRESENTLY USED TO MEASURE DRIVER ALERTNESS ARE IMPRACTICAL FOR WIDESPREAD USE. STUDIES DO AGREE THAT THE AUTONOMIC, S ...

  5. COMPACT, ULTRA-SENSITIVE NO2 FIELD MONITOR

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A NEW TYPE OF NO2 VAPOR SENSOR BASED ON A ROOM-TEMPERATURE TUNABLE DIODE LASER ABSORPTION TECHNIQUE. RECENT ADVANCES IN INEXPENSIVE, VISIBLE DIODE LASERS, AND ULTRA-SENSITIVE DETECTION CIRCUITRY NOW PERMIT REAL-TIME MONITORING OF TRACE GASEOUS SPECIES WITH SIMPLE OPTO-ELECTRONIC PACKAGES. THE SENSOR WILL BE BASED ON VISIBLE NO2 ABSORPTION NEAR 632 NM (1 ...

  6. Fluorescence Imager for Rapid Estimates of the Distribution and Abundance of Coral Recruits

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 831

    New methods are needed to help marine scientists conduct studies of the processes limiting or promoting coral recruitment and survivorship. The small size and low visual contrast of coral recruits in natural settings make them difficult to impossible to locate efficiently. Many coral recruits contain strongly fluorescent pigments, and viewed in the proper way this fluorescence dramatically incre ...

  7. Inexpensive Submersible Long-Term Dissolved Oxygen Recorder

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase II SBIR Project to complete the development of an inexpensive compact optical system for continuous dissolved oxygen monitoring in areas at risk of eutrophication induced by hypoxia and anoxia. The proposed monitor will facilitate the development of improved theoretical models by enabling better data collection with regard to spread and degree of oxyge ...

  8. GUIDED-WAVE POLARIZING BEAMSPLITTER

    SBC: RAMAR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL CONCEPTS FOR INTERGRATED OPTIC POLARIZATION BEAMSPLITTERS HAVE BEEN PROPOSED. HOWEVER, FOR ANY INTEGRATED OPTIC DESIGN, ACHIEVING 30 DB EXTINCTION REQUIRES A FINE TUNING MECHANISM FOR THE COUPLER. WE PROPOSE A NOVEL METHOD, USING PROTON EXCHANGE AND TITANIUM DIFFUSION IN LITHIUM NIOBATE, TO FINE TUNE A POLARIZATION SEPARATING COUPLER. THE TECHNIQUE ALLOWS MODIFYING THE TRANSFER LENGTH FOR ...

  9. An Innovative Low-Cost Dropsonde using Integrated Flexible Circuit Design

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 819

    Upper atmospheric measurements of temperature, humidity, pressure and winds are required daily at hundreds of locations around the world to drive numerical weather prediction forecast models. In the US these critical measurements are made by Radiosondes carried aloft by balloons filled with helium and tracked by 104 NWS ground stations. However, data-sparse regions off the west coast can only be a ...

  10. A Category-theoretic Tool for Manufacturing Information Integration

    SBC: CATEGORICAL INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 90101

    Category theory has recently been successfully applied to translate information from one computer system to another. Researchers at MIT have developed a prototype software tool based on category theory for solving information-integration programs. The tool has successfully solved small-scale information-integration problems including a problem identified by NIST about enriching the manufacturing s ...
