The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  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. NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) Broadcast Simulator

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: 832

    Complex and expensive instrumentation is currently required to test the NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) receivers because of their unique characteristics. There is a critical need for a small, portable, dedicated broadcast simulator specifically designed to evaluate NWR system performance. This SBIR Phase I project covers the research directed toward designing, prototyping, and establishing the feasibili ...

  3. The Oceanic CO2 Monitor

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 822

    Robust instrumentation is needed to map the distribution of Delta p(CO2) for the ocean¿s surface. Accuracies must be 2 ppm for water and 0.2ppm for the atmosphere. We are proposing to customize an AOS NonDispersive InfraRed analyzer to measure Delta p(CO2) autonomously from ships. Calibration will be referred to the WMO scale of dry mole fraction, and possible artifacts will be tracked by obse ...

  4. Flask Sampling Instrumentation for Trace Species of the Atmosphere

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Atmospheric Observing Systems has substantial experience in the design, testing and manufacturing of glass flask packages for CCGG/CMDL. AOS is proposing to expand its business to manufacture packages for the CAMP/CMDL program as well. For Phase I, AOS will build two prototype flask packages for CAMP that are operationally the same as CCGG¿s Programmable Flask Package. They will have either me ...

  5. Forward Error Correction Enabled Open-Source Packet Modern Development

    SBC: Blue Water Design, LLC            Topic: 838

    Development of a non-proprietary Frequency Shift Key (FSK) modern and packet assembler and disassembler incorporating forward error correction capable of ¿plug and play¿ interfacing to standard off the shelf VHF/UHF FM transceivers could provide an order of magnitude improvement in communication bandwidth and channel utilization for Automated Flood Warning Systems (AFWS). The use of 4 level ort ...

  6. Branch Prediction and Speculative Execution (BPSE): A Data Assimilaton Scheme for Space Weather

    SBC: Boulder Internet Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 8315

    Although Space Weather is modeled after Tropospheric weather, both in its conception as a weather system and in our efforts to forecast it, no capability exists today for assimilating magnetospheric data into Space Weather simulations. The proposed project will develop the first such capability in Space Weather. Branch prediction and speculative execution consist of making probabilistic predictio ...

  7. A Lightweight, Low-Power, Autonomous Single Particle Aerosol Nephelometer

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: 826

    An advanced single particle spectrometer (ASPN) will be developed that will be deployable on fixed, mobile or airborne measurement platforms. Particle size measurement will be from 0.15 to 5 ¿m. Light scattering will be used as the analytical technique to size particles. The unit will have an open cavity design to avoid changing the nature of the particles due to drying or loss of volatile ma ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Short-Term Forecasting of Severe Convective Storms Using Quantitative, Multi-Spectral, Satellite Imagery

    SBC: Marill Enterprises (dba Woodley Weather Consultants)            Topic: 839

    The development, testing and marketing of a new tool for the short-term (~1 hr) forecasting and warning of severe weather (i.e., tornadoes and large hail), involving the use of multi-spectral satellite imagery, is proposed by Woodley Weather Consultants. The proposal is based on its finding that height profiles of cloud effective radius, showing a deep zone of diffusion droplet growth, little coal ...

  10. Development of a Method for Fish Transfer and Harvest from Submerged Net Pens

    SBC: Ocean Farm Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 8116

    Successful commercialization of open ocean finfish aquaculture will depend on developing new, presently unavailable methods of transferring and harvesting fish from submerged containment structures. Ocean Farm Technologies, LLC will conduct research on developing a method to safely and efficiently transfer and harvest fish from submerged pens, using the patent pending AquaPodTM containment system ...
