  1. High-Sensitivity, Miniaturized CO Sensor for Airborne Use on Small UAVs

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 835R

    The team of Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI), TruWeather Solutions, LLC., and Latitude Engineering, LLC. propose to develop a novel, high sensitivity, fast response, solid state, electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor system for use in small UAVs which is capable of PPB level atmospheric measurements. The sensor is based on a thick film multi-element potentiometric micro sensor approach which has bee ...

  2. Capillary Absorption Spectrometer for In-Situ, Underwater Gas Analysiss

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 826R

    We will produce a prototype Capillary Absorption Spectrometer (CAS) capable of measuring dissolved methane in water. The concept utilizes mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy within a hollow fiber optic capillary that both confines a gas sample and acts as an optical waveguide. A tunable laser beam propagates through the hollow fiber to a detector with near unity overlap between the beam and ...

  3. Tofu-tolerant mariculture: Genomics-Assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Reliance on fishmeal and fish oil is a significant constraint to aquaculture expansion in America, and globally. As U.S. marine fish farming expands, genetic improvements could increase economic performance and decrease ecological footprint. This is critically important to sustainability, scalability and profitability of the industry, and is key to attracting capital investment. Commercial opportu ...

  4. BE-ROVER Benthic Environment-ROV Extensible Robotrmingar System)

    SBC: Robo Nautica, LLC            Topic: 821N

    There is currently no low-cost, high performance minimally invasive, bottom-crawling ROV system for monitoring coastal and littoral benthic environments which is also deployable by a single marine researcher. Such a system augmenting divers’ observations would greatly expand the quantity and quality of data critical to managing coastal environments and preserving the economic benefits derived by ...

  5. Small UAS Platform for NWS Missions

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841W

    NOAA and in particular, the National Weather Service (NWS), have an unmet need of a cost feasible small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) which can support multiple sensing missions which will either directly save lives or indirectly save lives through improved weather forecasts, warnings and public alerts. NOAA has enumerated two dozen valuable applications of small UAS for itself and partners. Toyon ...

  6. Monitoring for Advanced Geolocation Processing and Interference Exploitation (MAGPIE)


    SARA will develop an L-band detection sensor node that will detect, characterize, and geo-locate GPS jammers. At least eight nodes will be produced and they will be networked into an integrated surveillance system. The integrated, multi-node system will be controlled by a central monitoring system, where real-time surveillance results will be displayed to the end-user. The system will be tested an ...

  7. Hypervelocity Projectile Position, Angle of Attack, and Velocity Detection System

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF06300

    This proposal describes an improved Hypervelocity Projectile Scanner for tracking hypervelocity projectiles in aeroballistic test ranges. The scanner responds to a customer need for portable systems that can measure the pitch, yaw, position, and velocity of hypervelocity projectiles in the range. Presently, these measurements are made using film-based spark shadowgraph systems that are not portabl ...

  8. Compact Beam Direction and Tracking System for the Towed Optical Plume Simulator (TOPS)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF112059

    The purpose of SA Photonics proposed effort is to provide a compact beam direction and tracking system for the Towed Airborne Plume Simulator (TAPS) to broaden its capability to include independent multi-band control for surface-to-air-missile plume simulation. A development effort lasting approximately 22 months is envisaged to mature the technology relevant to this application and transition it ...

  9. Solid LIquid Integrated Cycle Engine (SLICE)

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: AF112181

    The Solid Liquid Integrated Cycle (SLICE) uses a solid fuel gas generator for the fuel and a liquid oxidizer. The propellants are combusted in an array of small thrusters with the exhaust expanded on an aerospike nozzle. The basic feasibility of the Solid Liquid Integrated Cycle Engine (SLICE) was substantiated through analysis and sub-scale testing with nitrous oxide as the oxidizer in HUSB Ph ...

  10. Mobile Target Secondary Debris (MTSD)

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: AF121095

    The objective of the project is to develop models for secondary debris generated by mobile targets. This includes the vehicle component breakup due to expanding high explosives and primary fragments as well as the associated airblast that propagates into the environment propelling secondary fragments from the vehicle. The overall scope of the project involves developing the computational and testi ...
