  1. Air Movement Efficiency Monitor

    SBC: XCSPEC, Inc.            Topic: NA

    The Air Movement Efficiency Monitor is composed of small, inexpensive Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors, connected wirelessly to the Internet, and distributed through a building to measure pressure readings at key points. We consider this a “FitBit” for a building’s air-movement efficiency, employing many of the sensors used by a fitbit – temperature, humidity, acceleration. We ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  5. Development of a High Sensitivity Laser-induced Incandescence Instrument for Characterizing Soot and Carbonaceous Particles

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A high sensitivity laser-induced incandescence system is proposed for the detailed characterization of environmental soot. The Phase 1 effort has clearly demonstrated the feasibility of (1) reducing the lower detection limit of soot volume fraction and increasing the overall measurement range by at least 2 orders of magnitude from what is currently achievable, and (2) providing PM particle size me ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Multiath Mitigation GPS Antenna/Receiver System for Geodetic Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop and demonstrate a multipath mitigating antenna/receiver system for GPS geodetic applications. Our proposed system consists of a dual-channel antenna that provides spatial discrimination between the direct satellite signal and multipath signals, coupled with enhancements to the receiver architecture including multiple correlators to estimate multipath ...

  8. NOAA Premium TV Program

    SBC: Ceilings Unlimited            Topic: 824

    Ceilings Unlimited proposes to develop a popular entertainment television show (¿The Program¿) for climate education and outreach. The Program will present tales of the human impact of climate and climate science, highlighting the role NOAA¿s climate services play in our nation¿s engagement on issues of climate and climate change. In Phase II, Ceilings Unlimited will distill the results of t ...

  9. Satellite Ground Station Network for Real-Time Space Weather Data

    SBC: USML L.L.C.            Topic: 843W

    The goal of this Phase II effort is to carry out a series of tasks with the purpose of developing a ground station network that can provide less than 15 minute latency in acquiring data from NOAA space weather assets. These tasks include:  Finalize a set of specifications for ground stations so they can be used to determine the suitability of existing ground stations for the different missions ...

  10. 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 ...
