  1. 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 ...

  2. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  3. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  4. High Efficiency Up conversion Single-Photon-Detector for 1550 nm Signal

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This NIST Phase II SBIR effort will two low noise single photon detectors using MgO doped LiNbO3 (LN) periodically poled waveguides and a 980nm (or similar appropriate wavelength) pump to up convert 1550nm photons to 600nm to allow for detection by photomultiplier tube (PMT). The key innovation is using low noise periodically poled waveguides with a long wavelength (1800nm) pump leading to higher ...

  5. Optimized Soft Magnetic Electrodes for Ultra-sensitive Magnetic Tunnel Juction Field Sensors

    SBC: Micro Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project aims to develop a new class of low-field magnetic sensors based on magnetic tunnel junctions with magnesium oxide (MgO) tunnel barriers. The Phase II effort will continue the optimization of sensor performance, based on three major research thrusts. First of all, we will continue the magnetic engineering effort, turning the properties of the two key magnetic electrodes, in order ...

  6. Over the Horizon Underwater Communications

    SBC: Megawave Corporation            Topic: SOCOM13002

    In this proposal we describe our approach and anticipated results concerning the use of a novel and innovative method for providing Over-The-Horizon (OTH) L-band links between a submerged tracking device and an overhead satellite without the requirement for an on or above surface antenna. The encapsulation of an antenna in a dielectrically compensating tethered cocoon that includes a sensor and m ...

  7. Remote Electronic Medical Devices using the Integrated Clinical Environment (REMDICE)

    SBC: DocBox Inc            Topic: SOCOM13003

    Generation of a single platform with multiple functional units requires a"fresh"approach. Battlefield CONOPS requires the immediate availability of multiple sensors and active devices. The sensors include: ultrasound, capnography, blood pressure measurement using non-invasive techniques, pulse oximetry, non-invasive hemoglobin measurement, electrocardiography and video laryngoscopy. Each of the ...

  8. Thermally Insulative Diving Suit

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SOCOM09001

    USSOCOM Special Operations Divers operate in harsh environments, often exposed to extreme cold temperaturess for extended periods of time. An advanced thermal protection system is required that provides enhanced thermal protection at cold temperatures as well as reduced thermal performance at elevated temperatures to prevent overheating. Mide proposes to combine nanomaterials with hydrogels to a ...

  9. Low Visibility Decoy Flare

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09002

    Low visibility flares offer significant advantages for nighttime protection of rotary wing vehicles. Aerodyne Research Inc (ARI) and its teaming partner ATK propose flares having nearly same intensity in IR bands of interest while having greatly reduced visibility. The Phase I program will build on previous work performed by ARI on low visibility flares to identify candidate flare compositions h ...

  10. Registration of EO and LIDAR using an Interoperability Architecture for Net-Centric Environments (RELIANCE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09003

    The “see first, understand first, act first, finish decisively” principle requires that military commanders and analysts be provided a complete, up-to-the-second view of the battlefield. Currently deployed full motion video (FMV) sensors provide crucial real-time situational awareness, but suffer from limited field of view and lack of geographical context. Augmenting current FMV displays with ...
