  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. Scalable Analysis Environment for Underwater Communication Networks

    SBC: Scalable Network Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A04132

    There is growing interest in the development of a capability to support extended unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) operations by providing energy and communication services. The scope of this Subsequent Phase II proposal is to develop FINS, an advanced simulator for such systems, using the Joint Network Emulator (JNE)/EXata network modeling capability. FINS will provide Live, Virtual, and Constric ...

  7. Distributed Satellite Communications (SATCOM) On-the-Move (OTM) Aperture

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A09066

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to (1) design a wideband digital distributed-aperture SATCOM on-the-move (SOTM) combiner system for use on Navy ships and (2) demonstrate a modem-to-modem digital RF-over-fiber link using direct sampling and reconstruction of the analog L-band signal. The combiner system will combine the downlink and uplink SATCOM signals from multiple SATCOM antennas used with ...

  8. MIDS Small Form Factor (SFF) Power Amplifier


    The development of a dual band miniature high power RF amplifier for a combined radio pair is critical for data transmission in small platforms. Many high power radios are bulky and expensive which limits the use to sizeable platforms only. The objective of this project is to design a miniature dual high power UHF/L-band radio set in a small form factor to be capable of being installed on many dif ...

  9. Automated Application Distribution Deployment

    SBC: Solute            Topic: N093196

    SOLUTE will mature the capability created during the last SBIR Phase II.5 to prepare it for successful transition into multiple PEO C4I Programs of Record. During the last Phase II.5 SBIR, SOLUTE modified the A2D2 prototype to be more scalable and transitioned it into an enterprise software capability that utilized trusted, scalable tools and infrastructure. SOLUTE worked with the GCCS-M Developme ...

  10. Fast Computation of Scattering from Elastic Targets

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N09T026

    While the use of high frequency SAS imaging and subsequent use of pattern recognition techniques have proven to be useful in detection and classification of proud targets, these techniques by themselves cannot be applied when the targets are buried in the bottom, as high frequencies sonar signals are severely attenuated there. For this reason, the use of low-frequency techniques, which reveal targ ...
