  1. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since they would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs). Hence, a wearable low cost (less than $50) multi-gas sensor is needed to alert first responders to the type and level of hazard they face. Such wearable sensors will also find use in the much bigger ...

  3. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and impractical for widespread field deployment. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to produce a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) that builds upon a established (patent pending) technolog ...

  4. Next Generation National Water Level Observation System

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 8210

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Accurate knowledge of water levels is crucial for day-to-day operations and planning of many US coastal activities. This information is used for the safe navigation of thousands of vessels on a daily basis, including passage of large vessels and cargos under and around coastal and river infrastructures. The NOAA Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (COOPS) ...

  5. The S0 UAS, and Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environment

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS ha ...

  6. Plasmid DNA positive control standards for molecular environmental assays

    SBC: Pisces Molecular LLC            Topic: 843

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We believe that employing current molecular biology techniques it is possible to develop plasmid DNA based positive control standard kits for a wide variety molecular assays for environmental organisms, and that this represents a significant commercial opportunity. In Phase I we demonstrated that plasmid DNA-based qPCR positive controls are stable, perform as well as genomic DN ...

  8. Position Error Maps for GPS/GNSS

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 831

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: As our nation’s dependence on reliable satellite navigation systems for precise Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) applications increases, any errors/uncertainties or degradation of service will have significant life, safety, and economic impacts. Ionospheric ‘space weather’ is one of the largest sources of error in PNT applications that use the Global Navigation Satel ...

  10. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are chemical substances that produce toxic effects if given in sufficient quantities and/or exposed for long durations. TICs are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since it would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than CAs. There are many commercially available handheld and personal gas monitors to monitor TICs. However, the ...
