  1. High Performance Signal Processing Tools with Fluctuation-Enhanced Sensing

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: 9020163R

    We propose a high performance library of signal processing tools that incorporate a newly developed technique known as fluctuation enhanced sensing (FES) to enhance the novel microsensor developed at NIST. Our goal is to improve the performance of the NIST sensor from two angles. One is to apply our existing proven algorithms to the NIST data. The other one is to incorporate advanced FES concept t ...

  2. Enhanced Security Content Automation Protocol Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: 9040577R

    G2 proposes to develop an intuitive, interactive SCAP content creation and editing utility that will provide a user-friendly operating environment. The promise of security automation offers the opportunity for great advances in software assurance, security governance/reporting, and ongoing monitoring activities. Hindering that promise is the fact that current data exchange protocols are cumbersome ...

  3. Safe Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles for Installations SAUVI

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: OSD141AU5

    Distributed visual surveillance has a major role in the future of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs). Distributed visual surveillance refers to the use of cameras networked over a wide area to continually collect and process sensor data to recognize and classify objects in the environment. Analyzed data will inform unmanned decision-making and fleet management to optimize a transportation system. ...

  4. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  5. Efficient Processing Using New Cell Disruption Method

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: 815

    The proposed effort is aimed at the development of a new low-cost technique for extracting the fuel precursor components from marine alga cells. The effort is aimed at reducing the total production costs of alga-derived fuels, up to one-half of which may be attributed to the recovery/extraction process alone. Development of advanced processing technologies such as that proposed here is n ...

  6. Photoacoustic Sensor for High-sensitivity Measurement of Water Vapor

    SBC: MASSTECH, INC.            Topic: 824

    We propose to build a compact, rugged airborne laser photoacoustic spectrometric (LPAS) sensor based on a tunable mid-IR diode laser for continuous, real-time measurements of water vapor, and perform field tests to qualify it for dynamic airborne in situ monitoring of upper troposphere water vapor. An innovative diode laser frequency locking technique developed by us will be utilized for tuna ...

  7. Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feed

    SBC: ABN            Topic: 841

    If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted at maximum sustainable levels of harvest, but also there is increasing concern that these feedstocks ...

  9. Natural and Sustainable Alternatives for Fish Meal/Oil Usage in Atlantic Salmon Feeds

    SBC: ABN            Topic: 8110

    The aquaculture industry currently consumes 70 percent of the global production of fish oil and 35 percent of total fishmeal. The salmon and trout fish farming sectors alone consume over one half of the world¿s fish oil. And if fish farming continues to grow at the current rate, then by 2010 the aquaculture industry could well be using all of the world¿s fish oil and half of its fishmeal. The ...

  10. Reuse Support Tools for Automated Constructino of Software Systems

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reuse in software engineering is an exciting concept that has yet to be reliably implemented. The number of program subroutines that are truly generic (and therefore applicable across all applications) is limited. However, there are specific applications that are required by many organizations, albeit with a set of constraints specific to each organization. This project proposes to design a too ...
