  1. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 825

    Subsurface mooring beacons are used to provide notifications and assist in locating moored assets that have surfaced and are free drifting. Their nominal design is driven by the requirements for offshore use where they need to survive extreme depths and remote deployment, most often using satellite constellations for communication and geo-location. Existing beacons serve their purpose well, but th ...

  2. Development of a Functional Balloon-borne GNSS-RO System Prototype

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    The SBIR Phase II proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in designing, and developing, and testing a system prototype to perform Global Navigation Satellite System radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a high-altitude balloon platform. NCL will continue building from the positive results achieved in Phase I that successfully demonstrated the feasibility of performing balloon-borne GN ...

  3. Fog Viewer

    SBC: Areté Associates            Topic: 826

    The presence of fog reduces visibility, contributing to unsafe conditions for many maritime tasks. The current system uses active backscatter and has high power requirements, high maintenance and replacement costs. Areté Associates’ innovative FogViewer system comprises a passive multi-spectral, multi-polarization sensor suite that leverages available degrees of freedom to best characterize the ...

  4. Sea Tag-SP: A family of acoustic enabled satellite tags for spawning detection and more

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Phase-1 demonstrated the powerful and unusual remote sensing opportunities available by adding acoustic signal detection to pop-up satellite tags (PSAT). The time and location of spawning define the starting point in the life history of fish. Yet this event, which is of critical importance to fishery researchers and managers seeking to gain an understanding of distinct reproductive populations and ...

  5. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  6. SEISMIC PRA

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    TECHNIQUES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED FOR PROBABILISTIC ANALYSIS OF THE RISK FROM EARTHQUAKE-INITIATED ACCIDENTS AT NUCLEAR POWER REACTORS. THESE TECHNIQUES ARE NOW BEGINNING TO BE APPLIED AS PARTS OF LARGER PRA STUDIES. HOWEVER, THE RESULTS OF APPLYING THESE SEISMIC PRA TECHNIQUES ARE STILL HIGHLY UNCERTAIN, AND THE INSIGHTS GAINED SO FAR FOR SPECIFIC REACTORS ARE DIFFICULT TO GENERALIZE. THIS ...

  7. PRESSURIZED WATER REACTOR TRANSIENT ANALYSIS MODEL

    SBC: Levy S Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PROGRAM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PRESSURIZED WATER REACTOR (PWR) TRANSIENT ANALYSIS MODEL FOR USE ON A MICROCOMPUTER. THE INTENDED APPLICATION OF THIS PWR MODEL IS FOR ANALYSIS OF PWR SYSTEM RESPONSE, INCLUDING FORCED AND NATURAL CIRCULATION OPERATION. THE PRIMARY USER OF SUCH A MODEL WOULD BE A UTILITY OR NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION (NRC) ENGINEER OR PLANT OPERATOR PER ...

  8. STUDY ON AVAILABILITY AND COMPOSITION OF METAL BEARING WASTES

    SBC: N.h. Parker, P.e. And            Topic: N/A

    THE WASTE STREAMS PRODUCED IN MANY MINERAL PROCESSING PLANTS ARE OFTEN TREATED ON AN "AD HOC" BASIS, MEETING THE ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS AT A GIVEN TIME. THESE WASTES DO CONTAIN VALUABLE METALS, WHICH ARE NOT RECOVERED DUE TO LACK OF OVERALL PLANNING OR DUE TO NONOPTIMAL PROCESSING. OPTIMIZING EXISTING PROCESSES OR INNOVATIVE PROCESS DESIGN FOR TREATMENT OF THESE WASTES WOULD YIELD VALUES, CONSERVE ...
