The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Compact, Lightweight Open-Path Cavity Ringdown Spectrometry System for UAS Deployment

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to miniaturize the patented, open-path cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS) analyzer developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The resulting instrument will be used to measure the optical properties of aerosols aboard Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) in highly humidi ...

  2. Clean Energy from Air-Sea Temperature Differences

    SBC: SEATREC, INC.            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We will demonstrate the feasibility and commercial applicability of a novel energy harvesting system that converts thermal energy from air-sea temperature differences into electricity. This capability will extend the endurance and capability of NOAA observing platforms, reduce lithium battery waste, increase human and environmental safety, and support efforts to detect and moni ...

  4. SeaTag-SP: A Spawning Detecting and Reporting Pop-Up Satellite Tag

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The application of acoustic sensing in small, affordable, satellite connected ocean devices has broad potential. This proposal focuses at first on the specific topic requirement, designing a popup satellite tag (PSAT) incorporating an acoustic receiver to identify and report the timing and location of fish spawning based on signal presence/absence detection for a tiny pinger wh ...

  5. FogViewer

    SBC: Arete Associates, Inc.            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The presence of fog reduces visibility, contributing to unsafe conditions for many maritime tasks. The current system uses active backscatter and has high power requirements, high maintenance and replacement costs. Areté Associates’ innovative FogViewer system comprises a passive multi-spectral, multi-polarization sensor suite that leverages available degrees of freedom to b ...

  6. Feasibility of a Recoverable, Balloon-Based, GNSS-RO Platform

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The SBIR Phase I proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in assessing the feasibility of performing GNSS radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a balloon platform. In Phase I, NCL will perform appropriate trade studies and sensitivity studies to identify key design requirements for the balloon-based GNSS-RO payload and the balloon platform. A lowcost, proof-of-conce ...

  7. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 825

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Subsurface mooring beacons are used to provide notifications and assist in locating moored assets that have surfaced and are free drifting so that they can be recovered. Their nominal design is driven by the requirements for offshore use where they need to survive extreme depths and utilize satellite constellations for communication and geo-location. These beacons serve their p ...

  8. Space weather-based position error maps for TEC- OnLine (SpoT-On)

    SBC: Space Environment Technologies            Topic: 831

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: 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 produce an order of magnitude improved TEC position correction maps. These will be publicly and globally accessible. A ...

  9. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range 4- 5.5 MHz Coastal HF Radars

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: 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 with offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 6 km, respectively. Currents provided by this network have numerous ap ...
