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. 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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Chemically Active Fruit Label for the Visual Estimation of Fruit Ripeness

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Certain fruits do not change color as they ripen and hence it may be difficult for consumers to select fruit that is ready to eat. Melons and winter pears are examples of fruit that is difficult to select. Most fruit is now individually labeled and this project will develop a label that will change color as the fruit approaches ripeness. This colorimetric label will provide ...

  7. Automated Fouling Mitigation System for Dairy Filtration Membranes

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Filtration membranes in the dairy industry for milk and cheese whey processing are to be cleaned and disinfected every 24 hours. Typical filtration plants for large-scale dairy processing have hold-up volumes of 1000-2000 gallons requiring large volumes of cleaning solutions and large quantities of chemical cleansers. Reducing cleanser cost and the environmental impact of sp ...

  9. A Novel Rodent Bait to Reduce Lyme Disease Risk

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Lyme disease is an emerging infectious disease accounting for more than 90% of all reported vector-borne diseases. In the eastern United States, the spirochete Borellia burgdorferi, which causes the disease, is carried by the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis). The main reservoir for the spirochete in the wild is the white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus), which serves as the m ...

  10. Compatible Economic Development in the Rocky Mountain Region: Diversifying Agricultural Income with Cultivation Techniques for Osha

    SBC: Healing Planet Herbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Rural communities throughout the Rocky Mountain region are in need of diversified, value-added crops to bolster a declining agricultural sector. Osha (Ligusticum porteri) is an excellent candidate. A native medicinal plant adapted to high-altitude, semi-arid ecosystems, osha currently commands a premium wholesale price for dried root. Yet a key factor limiting use is a lack ...
