  1. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

    Out of air situations present a hazard.  They can result in a dangerous emergency ascent, or failure of a diver to reach the surface.  A low air pressure alert (APA) device can provide a valuable margin of safety, but careful design is required.  The device must be effective.  In order for the device to be adopted and success, its ease of use, ergonomics and cost must be attrac ...

  2. A Simplified Sound Propagation Tool

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 819

    In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the role of man-made sound on the marine environment.  For this effort, we propose developing an intuitive software interface for sound propagation modeling.  This will be based on software developed at HLS Research, Inc. for similar applications.  The software will use existing propagation modeling codes that have a long hist ...

  3. High Fidelity, Low Power, Omnidirecddtional Hydrophone

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    There is a need to advance the state of the art low power, portable autonomous underwater hydrophones for recording fish spawning calls and other marine acoustics.  Affordable and reliable autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) mountable hydrophones that can detect such signals in the presence of AUV motor noise are required.  A system that includes software to automatically determine fish ...

  4. Isotopic Carbon Dioxide Analyzer for Atmospheric Studies

    SBC: PICARRO, INC.            Topic: 822

    Picarro has as part of its current product offering, a CRDS-based isotopic (13CO2/12Co2) carbon dioxide analyzer capable of measuring atmospheric levels of CO2 to a precision of 0.3% in a five-minute measurement.  This slow analyzer operated at 1.6¿m.  At this wavelength, we have pushed the very limits of what CRDS is capable of delivering for isotopic CO2.  The isotopic product propos ...

  5. Nanoparticle Characterization in Fluid by Resonant Mass Measurement

    SBC: Affinity Biosensors, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will extend the microchannel resonator to the level of a few attograms, which will allow measurement of individual particles as small as 10 nanometers with unprecedented resolution. The Phase I effort will prove the feasibility of this approach by miniaturizing the MEMS sensors, thereby improving their intrinsic mass sensitivity up to 100-fold; and by simultaneously measuring the sens ...

  6. Frequency Stable Optically Pumped Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N/A

    Technology research and development in such areas as next-generation atomic clocks, quantum information processing with trapped ions, and atomic spectroscopy is impeded by the lack of commercially available laser sources that meet the required specifications of wavelength tuning range, output power, frequency-stability and reliability. Arete Associates is developing frequency-stable Optically Pump ...

  7. Development of Pulse/DC Characterization System for LEDs

    SBC: Arroyo Instruments, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to implement the process for a new method for the measurement of LED performance, but in a form that is low-cost, integrated, and easy-to-use, so that the barrier to entry is as low as is possible.

  8. AC Amplifier and System for Nanopore Based DNA Sequencing

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The characterization of biologically relevant polymetric materials is a major focus of the bioinstrumentation industry. Of particular interest is the rapid, direct sequencing of DNA through a nanopore as well as the characterization of other biopolymers. Although progress has been made with nanopore sequencing, some fundamental instrumental and system issues have so far kept the method from realiz ...

  9. A Method for Specification of Efficient and Effective Strategies for Measurement of a Measurement Article on a Coordinate Measuring Machine by Use of Measurement Simulation Techniques

    SBC: METROSAGE, L L C            Topic: N/A

    We propose the definition, design, and prototype development of a software tool for use by the U.S. manufacturing community to enable the automated production of design-based measurement strategies of known reliability and high economic efficiency for coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). The measurement strategies so generated will meet the objective of reducing overall costs to near-minimal valu ...

  10. Three Axis Interferometer for Distance and Tip-Tilt Measurement

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: N/A

    During the Phase I SBIR project Optical Physics Company (OPC) investigated a three axis interferometer instrument which measures the one dimensional linear translation and the two-dimensional angular deflection in pitch and yaw of a 7 mm mirror 18-23 cm away. Lab demonstrations both before and during the Phase I effort showed performance parameters better than NIST requirements. The Phase I effort ...
