  1. Offshore Wind Energy Resource Siting

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 911SG

    Over the last decade, it has been noted that offshore wind energy resource development could prove extensively valuable in many areas of our nation’s growth, including continued diversification of our energy supply, more options for cost-competitive electricity in coastal and Great Lakes regions, and economical stimulation through new and lasting infrastructure development. The challenges associ ...

  2. Buoy Guard System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: 932W

    McQ will develop a complete conceptual design for a Buoy Guard System (BGS). This system will detect the presence of intruders at and on the buoy. It will initiate deterrent actions to persuade and force the intruders away from the buoy. It will also collect imagery and other data about the intruders and about their activities associated with the buoy. This data, along with the basic warning w ...

  3. Communicating Towed unit (Trailer) Vehicle Identification Number(s) (VIN) to the Powered Unit

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM1

    Usually the lifetime of a trailer is much longer than tractors; tractors must work with a variety types and ages of trailers over the course of their use. In many scenarios (e.g., roadside inspection, border crossing, smart parking, connected vehicle initiative, etc.), it is necessary to identify trailer(s)' VIN(s) and know their sequences attached to the powered unit. An automated trailer VIN id ...

  4. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 913N

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels, and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA in its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate an advanced algorithm to derive ba ...

  5. Climate Impact Visualization Tools Using Virtual 3D City for Community Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 931RC

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes an innovative visualization tool that transforms online GIS mappers into a climate impact assessment and planning tool that allows planners to visualize the impact of storm surges with sea level rise and coastal erosion using a 3D virtual city. The goal is to assist planners and emergency services to adapt to climate change at three tiers: i) Tier 3 (Long-te ...

  6. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  7. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  8. Mobile VHF Lightning Mapping System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 942RDW

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a mobile VHF-based sensor suite for detecting and mapping lightning flashes. The proposes Lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LUTMUS)™ System will meet small unmanned aerial system (UAS) cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWAP) constraints and should be capable of being placed on virtually any small UAS. The most critical component of the LITMUS syst ...

  9. Automated Image Analysis for Fisheries Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 921F

    We propose to develop software that is capable of automatically classifying and measuring the length of fish observed in video. We will focus initially on underwater video, but much of the software will also be applicable to fish onboard commercial fishing vessels as well. Our approach is to first segment fish based on their motion in the water. For this purpose, we will make use of existing au ...

  10. Developing a Standard Integrated Framework for Transit Assest Management Information

    SBC: Encada LLC            Topic: 131FT2

    Transit Agency Information required for managing Service centers on resources and assets that need to be available to operate the transit service as designed. An opportunity exists to design an Integrated Framework providing Service delivery and Maintenance Management Information to quantify the reliability and availability of the assets. This framework will incorporate modeling of the asset inven ...
