  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. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Field Device for Determining Atomization Properties of Agrochemical Tank Mixes


    Responsible and efficient use of agrochemicals is a balance between mitigating the undesirable drift and other off-site movement and optimizing the efficacy of the applied spray. Often, these demands can be in direct conflict, e.g., very large droplets reduce drift but may run off the target or may be ineffective against pests on leaf undersides. Depending on the immediate weather conditions, the ...

  8. Renewable Energy For Small Farm Profit Enhancement

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    23. NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY This research is concerned with improving the sustainability and profitability of small and mid-sized farms and ranches. The profitability and sustainability of small farms is vital to our Nation's character and economy, as well as to our stewardship of our biological and natural resources. Small and mid-size businesses in all areas of commerce, including agriculture, mus ...

  9. A Management Tool and Strategy for Aquaculture Development in Offshore United States Coastal Waters


    Situation or Problem: An offshore aquaculture industry operating in the United States Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) has tremendous potential for meeting the rapidly expanding global markets for fish products, particularly given the generally collapsing wild harvest fisheries here and elsewhere in the world. However, there are major impediments to this development in the U.S. including environmenta ...

  10. Novel environmentally friendly control of the citrus leaf miner, the proliferator of citrus canker, with sex pheromone

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

    Valued at 1.7 billion in 2000, the US has the second largest citrus industry in the world. Among the pests plaguing the industry is the citrus leaf miner, which not only damages citrus plants, but opens the door for devastating diseases, including citrus canker. In response to consumer demand, citrus growers managing the CLM seek low-risk alternatives to traditional pesticides that utilize equipme ...
