  • and Data Acquisition Systems Rising failures of shipboard dynamic positioning systems due to computer electrical or thruster issues are of concern The USCG Marine Safety Center MSC has taken note of the upward trends in investigations of marine incidents Students will build and outfit a water borne platform and design and create a data acquisition system to test dynamic position failures Students will then explore ways to model and better understand the mechanics of failures due to loss of reference position loss of motor drive and loss of thruster Cadets 1 c Hoburg 1 c Meyers Advisor Dr Emami GNSS Software Defined Radio SDR The U S Coast Guard Navigation Center NAVCEN is the primary U S government interface with GPS users on behalf of the U S Air Force which operates GPS NAVCEN seeks to monitor the performance of current and future GPS signals and the USCGA EE section needs a platform to test GPS algorithms A Software Defined Radio SDR GNSS receiver in which all of the baseband processing is performed in software instead of hardware allows for tremendous flexibility in the receiver This flexibility can be used to add new signals for monitoring and to change receiver algorithms for testing The objective of this project is to build a SDR GNSS receiver in MATLAB for post processing legacy GPS L1 C A signals which can then easily be expanded to include other GNSS signals A radio frequency RF front end will be needed to receive and digitize the GNSS data Upon successful implementation the options for shifting to a real time system will be investigated Cadets 1 c Palenzuela 1 c Pilarski Advisor LCDR Seals Enhanced Location Aware Tracking Via Low Powered Sensor Devices Explore the use of Near Field Comms NFC low power Bluetooth iBeacon or other technology to enable the CG to track employees and visitors on CG properties In today s environment it is important more than ever to ensure we know where personnel are during an emergency situation This project would research current technology and provide a small scale solution in Mac Hall that uses sensors and some sort of software interface to display personnel in Mac Hall on a building map Students will have to design develop integrate and test their system Cadets 1 c Lutton 1 c Hub Advisor LCDR Armstrong SeaWatch Command and Control C2 Software Development C3CEN is the System Development Agent SDA and System Support Agent SSA for SeaWatch the next generation C2 system for all USCG Cutters They are in the process of developing SeaWatch v2 0 and require three software modules applications to improve the robustness and security of the system The three applications are system monitoring front end GUI and heartbeat The project would be to design develop integrate and test these software modules for inclusion into SeaWatch 2 0 which would be installed on all USCG white hull platforms to include 378 270 210 110 FRC and OPC Cadets 1 c Taylor 1 c Edwards Advisor LCDR Myers The Power Project The power project is an exploration of power systems Leveraging the Hampden lab equipment cadets will construct a functioning generator switchboard with the capability of automatically paralleling up to three Hampden generators balancing the real and reactive power and automatically adding or removing generators as dictated by the load Closed loop digital control systems will be implemented to adjust the speed of the prime mover induction motor with variable frequency drive and the generator s field current to maintain a balance between all on line machines The system s electrical frequency will also be time synchronized to GPS so that cadets may explore the reliance of the nation s infrastructure on the GPS A GUI operator interface will be constructed allowing simple control as well as advanced analysis of system operation All data will be stored in a database for post analysis Cadets 1 c Sako 1 c Campbell Advisor LT Dahlen Embracing Today s Internet Protocol Network Layer 3 Modernization of the U S Coast Guard Secure IPv6 The world is slowly shifting from IPv4 to IPv6 network addressing The Coast Guard s C4 IT Strategic Plan 2011 2015 specifies that the Coast Guard will begin the transition of applications to operate in an IPv6 environment during FY2012 This project will research what IPv6 is involve the cadets becoming subject matter experts on this protocol and especially its security capabilities gain an understanding of the status of IPv6 migration at CGA and in the Coast Guard DHS build a mock up IPv6 network in the Capstone Lab design an IPv6 migration plan for CGA and work with IS to carry out the migration of McAllister Hall to IPv6 while troubleshooting and resolving any and all issues that arise in the process Cadets 1 c Williamson 1 c Hannon Advisor LCDR Benin Autonomous Ground Vehicle AGV for Mac Hall The Coast Guard needs personnel who understand data acquisition sensor integration video image processing and design of autonomous systems as missions demand more use of autonomous systems e g dynamic positioning systems surveillance drones The student will procure build a small ground vehicle determine a methodology for indoor navigation and instrument the vehicle with sensors laser video etc so that it is capable of navigating and performing an indoor surveillance mission autonomously Cadets 1 c
