  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

    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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Frequency-Stable Optically Pumped Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N/A

    Technology research and development in such areas as next-generation atomic clocks, quantum information processing with trapped ions, and atomic spectroscopy is impeded by the lack of commercially available laser sources that meet the required specifications of wavelength tuning range, output power, frequency-stability and reliability. Arete Associates is developing frequency-stable Optically Pump ...

  7. AC Amplifier and System for Nanopore Based DNA Sequencing

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In order to realize robust, inexpensive and routine DNA sequencing for medical, forensic, security and defense applications, new approaches must be pursued. One approach is the rapid readout of individual nucleotides as a single strand of DNA is drawn through a nanometer scale aperture. Although progress has been made with nanopore sequencing, some fundamental instrumental and system problems have ...

  8. Extended Refreshable Tactile Graphic Display (with Linear Actuation Array)

    SBC: E L I A Life Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    New innovative technology for the visually impaired has been developed by NIST. If commercialized, it would provide refreshable tactile graphical information to the visually impaired, enabling them to compete on a more equal footing in the workplace and the education system.

  9. Three Axis Interferometer for Distance and Tip-Tilt Measurement

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: N/A

    Optical Physics Company is proposing a three axis interferometer instrument which measures the one dimensional linear translation and the two-dimensional angular deflection in pitch and yaw of a 7 mm mirror 18-23 cm away. The design is simple and compact, fitting within a 5x5x7.5 cm volume. An initial lab demonstration has already been completed showing performance parameters better than NIST requ ...

  10. 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.
