  1. Modular Micro-Weather Station for Use in Open Ocean and Coastal Marine Environments

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    NOAA collects meteorological measurements in open ocean and coastal marine environments from research vessels, data buoys and commercial ships for use in numerical weather prediction, global climate change research, and severe storm identification. The current system cost for robust marine automated meteorological stations is too high to allow ubiquitous use on all the available platforms. Throu ...

  2. High Precision Monitoring Instrumentation for Background Methane

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Our Phase I effort was successful. We upgraded our baseline methane analyzer to meet or surpass the levels of performance posed by DOC solicitation subtopic 8.1.1R: sensitivity of 10 ppb (dry mole fraction), low maintenance for extended periods at remote field sites, less than one liter (NTP) of reference gas per day, and negligible response to platform motion. The analyzer is a novel applicatio ...

  3. Advanced Microwave Antenna for Airborne Soil Moisture and Salinity Mapping

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: 8110

    The NOAA Environmental Technology Laboratory seeks to perform advanced wide-area mapping of soil moisture and salinity. This requires a large scanning antenna with aerodynamic form, narrow beamwidth, high efficiency, and dual polarization. This antenna system must provide operation at L-band (1400-1427 MHz) and C-band (6.0-6.5 GHz). This large aperture must maintain stable performance independe ...

  4. Miniaturized and Robust FTS Sensor for Marine Chemical Analysis

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: 822

    Vescent Photonics proposes to construct a miniaturized, robust, Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) for rapid, in-situ marine chemical analysis. A t the heart of the proposed FTS sensor is our innovative, electro-optic technology, which provides a replacement for mechanical mirror translation. This technology enables a chip-scale, fully integrated FTS sensor with exceptional attributes: 1) small ...

  5. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  6. Portland Cement Concrete Pavement Recycling

    SBC: Road Processing Resources Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RPR's Phase I contract proved the feasibility of concrete recycling based o a shock-producing hammer/anvil concept for fracturing and sizing aggregate and separating reinforcing steel into marketable scrap. The Phase II project will develop a portable self-propelled prototype to remove and process a 12 foot wide roadway at a rate of about a mile a day. This is called "Fast Track" highway removal ...

  7. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During Phase I of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for a high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an independent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Ve ...

  8. Development of Transit Educational Software Tools for Handheld Computers

    SBC: Street Smarts Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Success in increasing seat belt and bicycle helmet usage has been accelerated by teaching children the value. This accomplishes two purposes: the children gow up with these as a natural part of their behavior and they insist that family members adopt the practices. Therefore, it is imperative that children learn the importance of transit and understand that it provides a convenient, reliable an ...

  9. Development and Evaluation of an Accessible Voice Recognition System (AVRS) for Individuals with Intellectual

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    Individuals with significant cognitive impairments have among the highest incidence of illiteracy. This, combined with the complex and text based interfaces of mainstream computer programs and operating systems, makes typical keyboard input largely inaccessible to this population. Voice recognition technology offers promise to overcoming this barrier, but currently provides the same barriers of ex ...

  10. Job Quest: An Internet-based, Self-Directed Career Exploration and Assessment System for Students and Adults with Significant Intellectual Disabilities

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    People with Intellectual Disabilities depend a great deal on work for their quality of life. Working in community-based jobs can make a substantial difference in income, relationships and self-esteem. An important factor in successful employment outcomes is matching individuals with jobs that are of interest to the job seeker. However, existing job interest tools are ineffective for this populatio ...
