This statement of work covers the need for student services to provide technical support in the fields of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering at Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC), Pacific. Support services from undergraduate students at educational institutions will support the design, development, and enhancement of the Insitu Automatic Storm Water Sampling Systems in the Environmental Sciences Branch at NIWC, Pacific. The purpose of this task is for students to assist in developing a low-cost, easy-to-use storm water sampling device capable of collecting an uncompromised, non-tidally affected sample that can be operated by on-site water program personnel.   Navy bases and facilities are subject to regulatory requirements governing the levels of pollutants in discharges emanating from Navy facility storm water outfalls. Storm water discharge permits require bases and facilities to implement storm water management programs that include implementation of practices and physical measures or technologies to reduce pollutants; site inspections and storm water discharge monitoring activities are required to assess the effectiveness of the pollution reduction efforts. Storm water sampling and analysis is essential to providing the quantitative data to determine pollutant loads in runoff and, in turn, to determine the effectiveness of control measures implemented and the overall storm water management program. Navy facilities in coastal areas are presented with the particular problem of acquiring storm water samples at locations that are tidally impacted. Sampling of storm events at locations where tidal intrusion occurs can result in samples that are compromised by seawater mixing and therefore invalidated for chemical (pollutant) measurements. Faced with permit requirements and other facility constraints (e.g., sampling confined to the work-week, daylight hour sampling, etc.), successful sampling opportunities can be limited or problematic. At tidally influenced discharge locations successful sample collection is hindered by the need to account for tidal influence and adjust sampling accordingly. Navy facilities managers have expressed a need for a low-cost, easy-to-use storm water sampling device capable of collecting an uncompromised, non-tidally affected sample that can be operated by on-site water program personnel. The Automatic Storm Water Sampling System project aims to address that need.

This Statement of Work covers the need for student services to provide technical and/or analytical support in the fields of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Ocean Engineering, or Oceanography for the Defense Advanced Research Program Agency (DARPA) Ocean of Things (OoT) project. The purpose of this project is to support research, design, and implementation of storage and analysis of data collected by oceanographic floats.   The DARPA’s OoT project processes information collected from the cloud-based data center, converting raw field measurements into oceanographic, environmental, meteorological products. DARPA imports and formats products information from external sources, used as ground truth comparison. The collected data include: Sea Surface Temperature (SST), salinity, solar irradiance, wave/swell height/periodicity (derived from IMU/accelerometer), barometric pressure, precipitation, wind speed/direction, surface current measurements.

This Statement of Work covers the need for the student services to provide technical and analytical support in the fields of computer science, computer engineering, information systems, electrical engineering, physics or a similar area of study in order to provide support to the Unmanned Carrier Aviation (UCA) project. The purpose of the project is to assist the Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific (NIWC PAC) personnel in development of software that will route traffic between the unmanned aerial vehicle and the Automated Digital Networking System (ADNS).   Unmanned Carrier Aviation is the MQ-25A aircraft that the Advanced Networking Tactical System (ANTS) will be housed in. The OSS (Operational Support System) is the software that is on the ANTS. ANTS is an Automated Digital Network System (ADNS) Airborne System that is compatible with the NAVY’s ADNS INC III Ship and Shore infrastructure. ANTS is composed of the following major components: Plaintext (PT) enclave, Inline Network Encryptor (INE), Ciphertext (CT) enclave, and the OSS. The OSS provides the common access point for the aircraft interface, maintainers, and system administrators for the configuration, monitoring, troubleshooting, and control of the ANTS Airborne System. The OSS is composed of the following core capabilities: system administration, monitoring, alerts, messaging, built-in-test (BIT), and autonomous troubleshooting.

The Interwork Institute is currently interested in hiring two Return to Work Coordinators to work in the Sacramento area.   The Interwork Institute is the research and policy arm of the San Diego State University (SDSU) Department of Administration, Rehabilitation and Postsecondary Education (ARPE).  The ARPE includes three academic degrees: Master of Arts in Education with a concentration in Postsecondary Education Leadership, the Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling and the Doctorate in Education with a concentration in Community College/Postsecondary Education Leadership. The Interwork Institute administers approximately 50 federal grants, state contracts, and other contracts from a wide range of resources. These grants and contracts cover a diverse range of topics, i.e., master’ degree in rehabilitation counseling and in postsecondary education leadership, certificate in rehabilitation administration, capacity building, assistive technology, transition and supported employment, technical assistance and continuing education, statewide needs assessment, workforce education, and community college teaching. The Interwork Institute includes six centers. There is a combination of funding through grants and contracts with the SDSU Research Foundation and the University. The RETAIN Demonstration Projects are a collaborative effort led by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) in partnership with DOL's Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Social Security Administration (SSA).  RETAIN—Retaining Employment and Talent after Injury/Illness Network—projects will test the impact of early intervention strategies that improve stay-at-work/return-to-work (SAW/RTW) outcomes of individuals who experience a work-related disability while employed. Work disability is defined as an injury, illness, or medical condition that has the potential to inhibit or prevent continued employment or labor force participation. California is one of eight states that successfully competed for RETAIN funding.  Other selected states include Washington, Ohio, Vermont, Kentucky, Kansas, Connecticut, and Minnesota. Within California, the project is led by the California Employment Development Department (EDD).  The Interwork Institute is working in collaboration with the EDD, the San Diego Workforce Partnership and the Sacramento Employment and Training Administration to develop and operate the project.  The project director, public health and training leads, some field staffing as well as other key leadership are located within the Interwork Institute.
