  1. 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 ...

  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 ...

  5. Online Music-based Game for Children with Speech- Language Delays/Disorders

    SBC: Iqsonics LLC            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The game, which is used by children alone or in tandem with a special education practitioner or caregiver, supports children in understanding and expressing musical patterns, and in learning to sing songs before speaking. This project will extend the existing version by developing a prototype that includes additional songs for increased speech-language learning outcomes, an animated onscreen singe ...

  6. LabAR: An Augmented Reality Learning System for STEM

    SBC: LightUp, Inc.            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a new component of the AR app, a prototype with computer vision and recognition software to present real-world phenomena that are ordinarily not observable in nature. In Phase I, the research team will create a magnetism module would show students the invisible magnetic field all around them and how it interacts with magnetic objects. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study w ...

  7. VR-enhanced Immersive Science Investigations into Biology and Genetics

    SBC: LIGHTHAUS INC            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a prototype of an immersive virtual reality experience for high school students to learn about the scientific processes and the biology of plants. The prototype will be designed to be multi-player where groups of students collaboratively conduct open-ended cross-breeding experiments, record images to export to reports, track and analyze data, and draw conclusions. At the end ...

  8. 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 ...
