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. 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. 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 ...

  8. A New Process for Producing Phytosterol and Lycopene Nano- and Micro-Particles

    SBC: AKTIV-DRY            Topic: N/A

    Phytosterols and lycopene are neutraceuticals that are known antioxidants and cancer inhibitors. Unfortunately, they do not dissolve readily in body fluids and therefore present unique problems concerning their uptake by the blood stream. This project explores the ability to enhance the rate of solubility of lycopene and phytosterols by formulating tham as nano- and micro-particles.

  9. Early Detection of Spoilage in Stored Grain

    SBC: BinTech, LLLP            Topic: N/A

    Millions of dollars worth of grain are lost worldwide due to spoilage activity in stored grain. Our goal is to develop an electronic device that will integrate CO2 sensing and data processing into a single unit. It will be an `easy-to-install-and-use' device that will continuously monitor CO2 concentrations in grain storage structures and alert operators early about spoilage conditions. It will pr ...

  10. Global System for Near-Real-Time Agricultural and Environmental Monitoring and Management Using Internet-Derived Communications Technologies

    SBC: DigiNet Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Situation or Problem: the monitoring of environmental conditions, including air, water, and soil parameters, plays an important role in both the optimization and the protection of agricultural and environmental systems. More importantly, the accuracy and timeliness of the information available has an impact on the management decisions that are made regarding that agricultural or ecological system. ...
