The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Shipping Channel Monitoring Through Remote Sensing and Analysis of Ship Generated Kelvin Waves

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 844

    Monitoring bathymetry changes in shipping channels of rivers and estuaries is vital to the US economy. The standard method of sonar depth sounding from survey ships, though accurate, is slow to perform. Thus, we propose a new and innovative approach for rapid assessment of shipping channel morphology from the kinematics associated with remote sensing of the interaction of Kelvin wakes from boats ...

  2. SeaTag: Design and Manufacture of a Family of Modular Archival Tags

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Small archival tags are a potentially powerful resource management tool. Yet, limited selection and high cost diminishes the technology¿s suitability for widespread studies. This proposal introduces a modular architecture for archival tag. SeaTag provides a rich and expandable sensing and data transmission/retrieval capability, while using the economies of scale of a modular product line to su ...

  3. SeaTag: Design and Manufacture of a Family of Modular Archival Tags

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 813

    The SeaTagTM project proceeds in Phase II to implement and test a family of micro observation stations that go beyond the concepts of traditional electronic data logging animal tags. These will include functions such as communication between SeaTagTM devices to obtain data from many animals when one tag is recovered or transmits. Deployment methods are extended to mounting on predators to monito ...

  4. SSP Tool: Simplified Sound Propagation Tool

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 819

    In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the role of man-made sound on the marine environment. For this effort, we propose developing an intuitive software interface for sound propagation modeling. This will be based on software developed at HLS Research, Inc. for similar applications. The software will use existing propagation modeling codes that have a long history in the unde ...

  5. High Fidelity, Low Power Omnidirectional Hydrophone

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc. (IOS) proposes to develop a highly reliable, high fidelity, fiber optic hydrophone-based sensor that will consume low power, and offer a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in the frequency range desired for monitoring marine acoustics. There is a need to advance the state-of-the-are of low power, portable hydrophones for recording fish spawning calls. Autonomous u ...

  6. GeoTag: A New Archival Tag for the Improved Tracking of Marine Organisms

    SBC: System Science Applications            Topic: 813

    Systems Science Applications proposes to design an archival tag that includes three new sensors: a magnetometer, accelerometer, and dual channel radiometer. The magnetometer will be corrected for pitch, roll, and transient accelerations by data from the accelerometer. The resulting vertical and horizontal magnetic intensity measurements will be combined with NOAA world magnetic maps to provide i ...

  7. Aerosol Instrumentation Package for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: BRECHTEL MANUFACTURING, INC.            Topic: 8213

    Development of a Compact Aerosol Instrumentation Suite for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

  8. 6 Dimensional Sensor Package (6DSP)

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07NH1

    Understanding the kinematics of intruding structures (floor plans, doors, roofs, etc.) as well as dummy motions is critical to safety related research. DTS believes the best way to acquire this data is to use small lightweight sensor packages to dynamically track the motion of single points using six degrees-of-freedom measurements. This methodology does not require line of sight to the measured ...

  9. A First Responder Tool for Rapic, Efficient, and Effective Response to Hazardous Material Incidents

    SBC: QUIMBA SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: 07PH2

    The nightmare scenario in HAZMAT transport (or storage) is an incident in the proximity of a densely populated area. This issue is so critical that Congress has, on a number of occasions, considered restricting HAZMAT transportation, routing it around metropolitan areas. While so far such restrictions have not been implemented, the HAZMAT transportation industry faces mounting legal and insuranc ...

  10. Breaking the Information Bottlenecks in Retail Plant Sales

    SBC: Aerulean Plant Identification Systems, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Development of an advanced, innovative system in support of timely assessments of emerging market opportunities for U.S. commodity crops is proposed. GDA will prototype a set of automated, decision support algorithms for near-real time, analytical assessment of large volumes of satellite derived time-series data on crop conditions. For development, the project will collaborate with the Production ...
