  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. Diagnostic device for detecting biomarkers of early multiorgan injury in saliva

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX, INC.            Topic: DHP16006

    Combat soldiers are exposed to vast numbers of dangerous chemicals with potentially adverse health outcomes. This SBIR proposal aims to develop a new class of saliva based diagnostic assays that will measure the bodys response to toxic chemical exposure with a panel of clinically validated biomarkers that are indicative of organ injury. The tests will leverage the proven functionality of lateral ...

  9. Cell Phone-based Early Detection of Multi-Organ Injury Biomarkers in Saliva

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHP16006

    Rapid diagnosis in conflict areas is a growingmilitary need, as troops areexposed to chemical threats (http://www.army.mil/e2/c/downloads/351235.pdf). Testingfor biomarkers in saliva has recently shown great promisein diagnostics, prognostics, and treatmentefficacy follow-up. In addition to itsconveniencefor field sampling and rapid testing,saliva is a rich body fluid with a number of physiologica ...

  10. Automated Vision Tester Technology Development for Aircrew Clinical Vision Screening

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DHP16004

    Existing visual screening devices consist of illuminated test cards. By rotating the knob, images may be changed; however, once the system is loaded with cards it cannot be easily reconfigured. There are a limited number of cards that a unit can hold at one time, and it is impossible to change cards on the fly if a patients vision needs further investigation or if the clinician wants to do variabl ...
