  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. High Performance Computing (HPC) Application Performance Prediction & Profiling Tools

    SBC: EP ANALYTICS, INC..            Topic: DTRA152003

    EP Analytics Inc. will develop and commercialize a suite of easy-to-use performance profiling and prediction tools for characterizing the performance and energy efficiency of High Fidelity computer codes. DTRA uses High Fidelity codes to investigate weapon effects phenomenology and techniques for countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). End-to-end High Fidelity simulations in support of the D ...

  7. Annular Gas Jet Anode for Decade

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA04010

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to replace the anode posts of a soft x-ray z-pinch with an azimuthally symmetric shell of high density, low atomic number gas. Once ionized, the gas column carries the current and eliminates particulate debris that is otherwise generated by the return rods. The gas shell also absorbs unwanted UV and hence eliminates the first Li foil filter of t ...

  8. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  9. Advanced Radiation Detector

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: DTRA05014

    In response to a DTRA need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) has developed a new, low-cost Advanced Radiation Detector (ARAD) and a process to produce it. ARAD is based on thallium-doped cesium iodide scintillator, sensitive to gamma and X-ray energies up to 1 MeV with 3% resolution, and fully compatible with existing mass production technologies. In Phase I POC successfully completed the ARAD ...

  10. Efficient and Accurate Coupled Circuit and Substrate Simulation for Radiation Hard Electronics

    SBC: ROBUST CHIP INC.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The key innovation of the proposal is a novel, fast and accurate, algorithm (patent pending) to simulate substrate effects, in particular single event transients (SETs), in semiconductor circuits. This new method opens up a new capability for circuit designers to study a large set of substrate and layout related effects using simulation, helps them to make good choices regarding circuit design and ...
