  1. A Blubber or Dorsal Fin Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Phase II goal is to de ...

  2. Resilience-Based Optimization of Space Systems

    SBC: Magnin, Michael            Topic: H6

    With future missions of increasing complexity, duration, distance, and uncertainty, there has been a growing need for methods and tools that can permit the effective formation of early stage conceptual designs that are not only cost-effective, but also productive and resilient to failures. Work performed during Phase I, involved development of a method and tools to address these challenges for spa ...
