  1. Automated Sonde Launching System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Balloon-borne radiosondes are used extensively to collect meteorological data in atmospheric research programs funded by NOAA, WMO, DOD, DOE and others. The launch of radiosondes requires skilled personnel at each launch site to perform tasks such as balloon filling, sonde pre-conditioning and attachment, and physical release of the equipment. At present no low-cost, simple, lightweight, and rob ...

  2. Head-Up Display for Mariners

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed NOAA SBIR Project will demonstrate the feasibility of a low-cost Head-Up Display (HUD) for mariners, that will display 2 and 3-dimensional navigation and nautical chart data. The capabilities of the Phase 1 HUD system will be based on operational requirements determined during the NOAA SBIR research phase. The proposed HUD requirements of other classes of ships and marine craft wil ...

  3. Advanced Tools for Process Specification Language

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will (i) extend and harden the PSL Editor and the Ontology-Driven XSLT Generator (ODXG) tools and (ii) extend the process description syntax (PDS) derived from the PSL for both KIF and XML/RDF formats. In addition, we will extend the PSL metatheoretical framework to support the PDS and the PSL tools by providing PSL extensions to support calendars and activity specialization, and by d ...

  4. Development of Grow-out Techniques for Juvenile Green Sea Urchins

    SBC: R.J. Peacock Canning Company            Topic: 841

    This SBIR Phase 2 project looks to develop and further refine the culture conditions to optimize the growth of juvenile green sea urchins (Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis), a commercial species not previously cultured as juveniles. We will develop an alternative technology for the New England fishery which now depends only on the harvest of wild urchins. Sea urchin roe is a delicacy in Japan t ...

  5. Surface Selective Chiral Detection: A New Metrology Technique

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    The near chiral purity of the biosphere leads to a vast array of chiro-specific physiological responses. This chiro-specificity, in turn, gives rise to the need for the manufacturing of enantiomerically pure chiral chemicals, such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals, food additives, pigments, etc. Critical to the efficacy of both chiro-specific biology and chiro-synthesis/separation are the interfacial ...

  6. Compact, Turnable Diode Laser for Water-Vapor Spectroscopy

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a compact external cavity stabilization system, which will employ independent electro-optic control over the optical path length of the cavity and a wavelength-selective element. The system should be able to cover a 30 nm range and give mode-hop-free tuning over 20 nm intervals. The design of the feedback system will be compatible with any commercially available laser diode from 63 ...

  7. Development of the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Firefighters have expressed the need for both increased accuracy in fire detection systems and greater access to environmental information in the event of a fire. To accomplish both tasks, Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS). This system comprises both an advanced fire detection system and the networking capability necessary to provide real-time ...

  8. Real Time Linux Operating System for ATC

    SBC: Precision Traffic Systems Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the Advanced Traffic Controller (ATC) program to create an open-architecture general computation platform for traffic engineering applications will be more fully realized by the transition from proprietary operating systems to open source Linux. The use of hard real-time Linux will maintain current levels of operational performance while enabling the use of newer and more powerful har ...

  9. nhancing the Usability of the TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic

    SBC: Rioux Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic is a high quality single intersection microscopic traffic simulation model developed at The University of Texas at Austin. The TEXAS Model analyzes in sub microscopic detail the behavior of driver-vehicle units as they go through an intersection and intermix with other traffic flows. The TEXAS Model has detailed intersection geometry, path following, micr ...

  10. Utilization of Native Grasses and Forb Meadows as a Source for Native Seed Production

    SBC: Solis Environmental            Topic: N/A

    Mandates to use native wildflower and grass seed began in 1987 with the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act and have been reinforced by two Executive Orders. Current demand for native seed exceeds the supply, therefore the need exists to develop additional native seed sources. Land uses such as conservation, recreation, and wildlife habitat offer the potential for native ...
