  1. A Location-based Weather Threat Tracking and Notification System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 834

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: CFDRC proposes the creation of an innovative location-based threat tracking and notification system to allow users to receive hazardous weather messages from the NWS with their call to action, allow users to receive custom-tailored messages about threats, and visualize relevant weather information within their area. The focus is on a tool that allows this information to be comm ...

  3. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and impractical for widespread field deployment. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to produce a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) that builds upon a established (patent pending) technolog ...

  4. Next Generation National Water Level Observation System

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 8210

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Accurate knowledge of water levels is crucial for day-to-day operations and planning of many US coastal activities. This information is used for the safe navigation of thousands of vessels on a daily basis, including passage of large vessels and cargos under and around coastal and river infrastructures. The NOAA Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (COOPS) ...

  5. The S0 UAS, and Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environment

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS ha ...

  6. Plasmid DNA positive control standards for molecular environmental assays

    SBC: Pisces Molecular LLC            Topic: 843

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We believe that employing current molecular biology techniques it is possible to develop plasmid DNA based positive control standard kits for a wide variety molecular assays for environmental organisms, and that this represents a significant commercial opportunity. In Phase I we demonstrated that plasmid DNA-based qPCR positive controls are stable, perform as well as genomic DN ...

  8. Position Error Maps for GPS/GNSS

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

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: 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 Satel ...

  9. 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 ...
