  1. In-Field Device for the Autonomous Detection of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxigenic Species and Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 833

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) cost the U.S. economy ~$50 million per year. Early detection of blooms and a rapid response by state and federal resource managers are the most effective ways to mitigate the impacts of HABs. However, methods for detecting HAB species and their toxins are laborious, time-consuming and require expensive equipment. To overcome these problems, Lynntech proposes to build ...

  2. A Submersible Video Recorder for Marine Biological Surveys

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 8113

    We propose research to develop and demonstrate a deeply submersible video plankton recording system (ViPR) to perform image recording of plankton. The ViPR will apply artificial intelligence to 2-D or 3-D imaging using pattern recognition for a statistically reliable survey of plankton using two cameras, one for larger zooplankton and the other for microplankton. The ViPR computer will be PC compl ...

  3. Natural Product Antifoulant Protection for Bio-Sensors and Solar Panels

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 845

    Solar panels and bio-optical sensors play a significant role in a number of applications that are of importance to NOAA. Many of these instruments require a high transmission of radiation into the device for it to work properly. Typically, these devices have a coverglass affixed over the active part of the device to protect the sensor or panel from harsh conditions. A problem that presently exi ...

  4. Real Time Linux Operating System for ATC

    SBC: Precision Traffic Systems Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The Advanced Traffic Controller (ATC) goal of a standard open architecture for traffic engineering applications will be more fully realized by the transition from proprietary operating system to open source Linux. In Phase I of this project, Precision Traffic Systems (PTS) demonstrated that a real time Linux OS could support an existing traffic signal control application, and perform to 2070 task ...

  5. Voice Activated Cockpit for General Aviation

    SBC: The Wesson Group            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project will be to develop a prototype voice-activated cockpit (VAC) that will allow a pilot operating in marginal VMC to manipulate controls via voice commands and receive voice feedback for verification of settings. In so doing, we strive to create a system where tasks usually accomplished by looking at an item and manually entering data, turning knobs,, or pushing buttons will ...

  6. Development of a Nemeth Math to Latex Backtranslator System

    SBC: Logical Software Solutions            Topic: N/A

    Development of a completely automatic backtranslation system for translating Mathematics encoded in Nemeth Math Braille notation (used by visually impaired individuals to repesent Mathematics) to Latex (a widely used word processor for typesetting mathematics)

    SBIR Phase II 2005 Department of Education
  7. Increasing Mobility Through Advanced Power Sources for Assisted Mobility Devices

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of a "rendering" technique to allow people with visual impairments or dyslexia to acess the internet easily using any telphone and without using a computer

    SBIR Phase I 2005 Department of Education
  8. Study on the Feasibility and Design for the Development of a Comprehensive Web-Based Audit, Certification and Remediation System for Accessibility of Websites

    SBC: Perceptive Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Study of the development of a comprehensive web-based audit, certification, and remediation system for accessibility of web sites

  9. Compact sheath-flow-free multichannel flow cytometer

    SBC: Adeptas, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Flow cytometers are valuable tools for the rapid analysis of cells and macromolecules for both research and diagnostic purposes. Ideally, flow cytometry based analysis could benefit more researchers and clinicians if the units were more affordable, smaller, and even portable. New fabrication techniques and design approaches developed in the microfluidics and la ...

  10. Multi-frequency impedance sensor for cell analysis

    SBC: Adeptas, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Broadband impedance analysis of individual cells yields a wealth of information about cell size, viability, morphology and interior structure. Cell dielectric properties including membrane conductivity, cytoplasmic conductivity, and membrane capacitance can be derived from multi-frequency impedance data and used to differentiate and enumerate cell populations i ...
