  1. In-Field Device for the Autonomous Detection of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxigenic Species and Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 833

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are a serious threat to coastal resources, causing impacts ranging from the contamination of seafood products with potent toxins to mortalities of wild and farmed fish and other marine animals. HABs cost the U.S. economy over $50 million annually due to the closure of fisheries and beaches and the treatment of human illness from toxin exposures. NOAA is interested in ...

  2. Environmentally-Friendly Anti-Fouling Coverglass for Bio-Optical Sensors and Solar Panels

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 845

    During a successful Phase I feasibility study, Nanohmics¿ scientists were able to incorporate environmentally-friendly algaecides into hard, optical quality polymers for use as coverglass materials. These transparent coverglass materials stopped all marine algae growth on the glass for well over a month. The Phase II development will further this research by incorporating natural product and/or ...

  3. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  4. Advanced Tools for Process Specification Language

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a robust PSL syntax based on XML and RDF that will further its role as an interlingua among various process modeling languages. In addition, we will develop the next-generation translator-generator system based on this format to automate the software development process of process-centric translation across applications and formats. One of today's greatest challenges to succe ...

  5. Polymeric Coating by Ink-Jet Printing

    SBC: MicroFab Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    The ability to pattern multilayered polymers on a micro-level is valuable to a large number of applications in microelectronic manufacturing. Applications range from printing dielectric coatings and polymer resistors to printing active devices such as polymer LEDs and polymer transistors. The advantages of ink jet printing are: (1) one station can print multi-fluids, (2) non-flat substrates could ...

  6. GPS-Tracked Buoy for Hydrographic Survey Applications

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A long standing problem in oceanography and hydrography is accurate real-time measurement of offshore water levels. The Phase 1 research involved investigating a wide range of recent techniques and technologies, and performing analyses and trade-off studies to evaluate, select, and integrate them into a GPS-tracked buoy system (buoy, shore reference station for differential GPS, and repeater stati ...

  8. Antimonide Laser Spectrometer for measuring the flux of ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR research project will investigate the feasibility of an ammonia sensor based on an antimonide laser and an advanced, low noise modulation spectroscopy method. The rapid response and high sensitivity will allow the use of the eddy correlation method to provide continuous measurement of ammonia flux. Minor adjustments to the laser operating point will allow the instrument to measur ...

  9. Oxygen Sensor in Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to perform in-situ measurements of oxygen concentration in fire environments at a fast rate (better than 1 sec ) is not fulfilled by available sensor systems in the marketplace. Current systems involve extraction of gas samples with the required removal of water, particulate, and interfering chemical species, which can take several seconds to complete, prior to passing the samples to a ...

  10. FP-Aptamer Reader for Algal Toxins

    SBC: OMNISITE BIODIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OmniSite BioDiagnostics (OmniSite) proposes to develop artificial receptors composed of DNA oligomers (called ¿Aptamers") for binding and detecting algal toxins. DNA aptamers can be mass produced with relative ease compared to antibody production and purification. The aptamers will be 5'-Cy 5 fluorochrome labeled and used in simple one-step binding fluorescence polarization (FP) assays that do ...
