  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  2. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in t ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: Batch Wafer-Scale Fabrication of Improved Probe Tips for Scanned Probe Microscopy

    SBC: TIPTEK, LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will perfect a proprietary batch-scale processing technique for fabricating ultrahard and ultrasharp atomic force microscopy (AFM) tips. The new process involves two steps. First, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is used to coat the tips with a chemically inert, highly conductive, and extremely hard material. Second, a patented process ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Combining Fungal Metabolites and Fungal Insect Pathogens for Cost Effective Control of Bark Beetles in Forestry

    SBC: MONTANA BIOAGRICULTURE INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop fungal bioinsecticides for control of bark beetles in forestry. Bark beetles are difficult to control. With a life cycle mostly under tree bark, exposure to insecticides is limited to the short period when adults search for new host trees. Control of mountain pine beetle (MPB), one of the most damaging species, is ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Targeted Nanoparticle Delivery Agent for Treatment of Adult Leukemia

    SBC: NanoValent Pharmaceuticals, Inc.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop targeted nanoparticle delivery systems capable of delivering conventional cytotoxics preferentially to tumor cells. While therapeutic nanoparticles have been introduced into clinical practice (Abraxane(TM) and Doxil(TM)) and others are in development, none have been developed that show tumor target specificity (as opposed to inc ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Photonics Enabled Extreme Bandwidth Wireless Communications Receiver

    SBC: S2 CORPORATION            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will adapt a photonics based signal processor to propel applications in extreme bandwidth spread-spectrum wireless communications. The signal processor prototype known as the spatial spectral holographic (S2H) extreme bandwidth analyzer / correlator (EBAC) will function as a correlating receiver for low probability of intercept (cover ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: New Fluorescent Biosensors for Signaling in Living Cells

    SBC: Montana Molecular LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will establish the feasibility of developing a genetically-encoded biosensor to monitor levels of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), an important second messenger component of drug signaling pathways. Unlike existing FRET-based biosensors that depend upon energy transfer between two fluorescent molecules, this sensor will employ a ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Development and Commercialization of Nitrate-Selective Sensors for Precision Agriculture

    SBC: SupraSensor Technologies, LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate proof of concept and validate the feasibility of translating a molecular receptor for nitrate anion into a highly-selective and sensitive soil probe. Ultimately, these sensors will fulfill the need for real-time monitoring of fertilizer application in environmentally sustainable precision agriculture. Both the ion-sele ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: A Compact, Low Cost and Handheld Sensor for the Detection and Quantifications of Organic Compound Contaminants in Drinking Water

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel chemical sensor technology for inline water quality monitoring. Currently, gas chromatography coupled mass spectroscopy is the most widely used technique for water quality analysis; however, the method is costly, time consuming, and can only be performed by well-trained personnel in a laboratory setting. To meet ...
