  1. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...

  2. Plasmid DNA positive control standards for molecular environments assays

    SBC: Pisces Molecular LLC            Topic: 843

    The proliferation of sensitive DNA-based assays for detecting the presence of specific harmful, toxic or invasive organisms, as well as the simple reagent and instrumentation requirements for these assays has made widespread and more frequent testing for these different organisms possible. However, a frequent problem with such assays is the lack of available, well-quantified positive control stand ...

  3. Position Error Maps for GPS/GNSS

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 831

    As our nation’s dependence on reliable satellite navigation systems for precise Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) applications increases, any errors/uncertainties or degradation of service will have significant life, safety, and economic impacts. Ionospheric ‘space weather’ is one of the largest sources of error in PNT applications that use the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) s ...

  5. SatCAT: The Satellite Charging Assessment Tool

    SBC: Space Hazards Applications LLC            Topic: 842W

    The purpose of this project is to develop a Satellite Charging Assessment Tool (SatCAT) that will provide satellite operators/manufacturers with information to quickly and confidently determine whether anomalous satellite behavior observed on orbit results from changes in the space radiation environment. The intense radiation surrounding Earth can damage electronic components causing temporary mal ...

  6. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  7. Reducing Impact of Severe Space Weather on Global Positioning System (GPS) Satellite Users

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 844W

    In Phase II, Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to complete the development of a real-time nowcast of ionospheric scintillation impacts on GPS users. Continuing its partnership with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, PRA will implement real-time production of a map of ionospheric scintillation parameters over the United States using real-time data streamed from the National Geo ...
