  2. Large Field of View Microscope for Rapid, High-Resolution Imaging

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: NA

    In this SBIR effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a high-resolution (< 1 micron) microscope that can rapidly (< 30 seconds) image a large field of view (> 1 cm2). The technology will provide both bright-field and fluorescence imaging and be capable of retrofitting into a wide variety of existing microscopes at a low retail price. This work will complement the microscopy efforts that are on ...

  3. Air Movement Efficiency Monitor

    SBC: XCSPEC, Inc.            Topic: NA

    The Air Movement Efficiency Monitor is composed of small, inexpensive Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors, connected wirelessly to the Internet, and distributed through a building to measure pressure readings at key points. We consider this a “FitBit” for a building’s air-movement efficiency, employing many of the sensors used by a fitbit – temperature, humidity, acceleration. We ...

  4. Visual Part Identification, Localization, and Manipulation with Deep Networks

    SBC: SYMBIO ROBOTICS, INC.            Topic: NA

    During Phase I, Symbio Robotics conducted initial development of a robust, real-time, high-performance, low-cost perception engine made possible by recent advances in deep learning. This system identifies parts in 2D or 3D images and determines their six degree-of-freedom poses, producing a full description of a scene in a fraction of a second. For this technology to be practically useful in manuf ...

  5. Space weather based position error maps for TEC- On-line (SpoT-On)

    SBC: Space Environment Technologies            Topic: 831

    The Space weather-based position error maps for TEC-On-Line (SpoT-On) project will use GPS=GNSS based TEC data, integrated into the Global Assimilation of Ionospheric Measurements (GAIM) operational system at the Utah State University Space Weather Center to product improved TEC position correction maps. These will be publicly and globally accessible. A result is that agencies, industry and consum ...

  6. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range Coastal HF Radars Below 11 MHz

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 824

    The U.S. High Frequency Radar (HFR) network contains more than 140 coastal stations that provide hourly two-dimensional coastal surface currents. Approximately one-third of these are Long Range (LR) systems that transmit in the 4 – 5.5 MHz frequency band and have nominal offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 3 – 6 km, respectively. The data provided by the network has numerous appl ...

  7. Crowdsourcing Coastal data with Low Cost IOT CTD / Hydrophone

    SBC: Swift Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 833

    This paper proposes development of a low cost combined hydrophone and CTD sensor, with wireless communication and software support to upload data to National Geographic’s FieldKit. This will enable citizen scientists to collect conductivity, temperature, depth, and ocean noise measurements on an adhoc basis while contributing to a single large data repository which will allow for deep analysis o ...

  8. Micro-fluidic Photometer with Adaptive Mask

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used to convey the particl ...

  9. High-Sensitivity, Miniaturized CO Sensor for Airborne Use on Small UAVs

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 835R

    The team of Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI), TruWeather Solutions, LLC., and Latitude Engineering, LLC. propose to develop a novel, high sensitivity, fast response, solid state, electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor system for use in small UAVs which is capable of PPB level atmospheric measurements. The sensor is based on a thick film multi-element potentiometric micro sensor approach which has bee ...

  10. Capillary Absorption Spectrometer for In-Situ, Underwater Gas Analysiss

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 826R

    We will produce a prototype Capillary Absorption Spectrometer (CAS) capable of measuring dissolved methane in water. The concept utilizes mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy within a hollow fiber optic capillary that both confines a gas sample and acts as an optical waveguide. A tunable laser beam propagates through the hollow fiber to a detector with near unity overlap between the beam and ...
