Award List:

NON-SCANNING CLIMATE SENSOR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: James W Hoffman , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $49,963.00

NON-SCANNING CLIMATE SENSOR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: James W Hoffman , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $499,000.00
Abstract:
To make accurate measurements of the earth's radiation budget it is necessary to obtain angular distribution measurements as well as total radiation measurements. to date, these angular measurements have been made in separate scanning instruments which mechanically scan a set of detectors across the… More

CLOUD TOP RADIOMETER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: James W. Hoffman , Technical Director
Award Amount: $49,854.00
Abstract:
Rapid updraft velocities of clouds often accompany severe storms and tornados. during these high energy events, clouds can rise as much as 40,000 feet in a matter of minutes. a new type of instrument, the cloud top radiometer(ctr), is proposed which can monitor the altitude of cloud tops at a high… More

High Precision Cavity Radiometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: James W. Hoffman
Award Amount: $69,842.00

High Precision Cavity Radiometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: James W. Hoffman
Award Amount: $599,952.00
Abstract:
The High Precision Cavity Radiometer is an all digital dual cavity radiometer with a 600-fold increase in sensitivity over current cavity radiometers. This new detector is being proposed for use in two applications: (1) as a spaceborne sensor and (2) as a commercial laboratory instrument. First, the… More

Low Cost Fire Intensity Mapper

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Mr. james w. hoffman
Award Amount: $54,946.00
Abstract:
The ability to quickly detect and accurately map fire areas is an invaluable asset for fighting fires. Anairborne imaging system which can accurately map both the flame and ash areas with respect to groundfeatures can greatly aid fire-fighting teams and airborne water-tanker pilots. The thermal… More

Abstract:
The ability to quickly detect and accurately map fire areas is an invaluable asset for fighting fires. Anairborne imaging system which can accurately map both the flame and ash areas with respect to groundfeatures can greatly aid fire-fighting teams and airborne water-tanker pilots. The thermal… More

Low Power Mass Spectrometer employing TOF

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dean Aalami, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,930.00
Abstract:
A low power Mass Spectrometer employing multiple time of flight circuits for parallel processing is possible with a new innovation in design of the Time of flight circuit. The novel scheme uses gate delays to measure time of flight and calibrates the gate delays using a precise clock. Sensor weight… More
