  1. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  2. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  3. Rapid and Low-Cost Field Toxin Analysis to Monirot Harmful Algal Blooms

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 812N

    During the harmful algal blooms (HAB), marine algal toxins reach concentrations high enough to cause various neurological and gastrointestinal disorders through inhalation of the toxin or consumption of contaminated shellfish. Brevetoxins, produced by dinoflagellate Karenia brevis, are known to disrupt neurological processes to cause an illness called neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The timely rec ...

  4. Supporting Local Decision Making through a Comprehensive Community Driven Data Tool

    SBC: Industrial Economics, Incorporated            Topic: 851X

    A central part of NOAA’s mission is to develop and distribute scientific data, including large-scale climate, weather, marine, and coastal information for regional and national analysis. NOAA has also developed local data gathering tools on an as-needed basis. While these approaches demonstrate the power of local data collection, no existing tool meets the broad needs of environmental community ...

  5. A uMECS miniature blower for respiratory protection systems, Phase II

    SBC: Vibrant Composites Inc.            Topic: CBD14103

    Air management solutions capable of reducing heat and moisture burden are not suitable for integration in wearable respiratory protection systems due to excessive weight, volume, and power requirements of existing technologies. Vibrant Composites proposes applying its unique uMECS manufacturing technology towards development of an ultra-lightweight and power efficient miniature blower. Fundamental ...

  6. Advanced LWIR Hyperspectral System for On-the-Move Standoff Detection of Liquid and Solid Contaminants on Surfaces

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD12104

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to utilize an innovative LWIR hyperspectral technology coupled with advanced data processing algorithms for non-contact, standoff detection of liquid/solid contaminants on surfaces. The technology will address the US Army"s need for fast, on-the-move, non-contact detection of ground contamination during reconnaissance missions. The Phase I effort demonstrated ...

  7. Enhancing the Pharmacokinetic Profile of Protein-based Drugs

    SBC: Extend Biosciences Inc.            Topic: CBD12101

    Many protein-based drugs have limited efficacy due to a short half-life or require intravenous delivery because of low bioavailability. Extend Biosciences is developing proprietary carrier molecules that allow proteins to access an intrinsic transport pathway for efficient delivery to the vascular space and then maintain a sustained presence in circulation. This novel technology would be of partic ...

  8. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  9. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  10. Sensitive and Selective Chemical Sensor Using Molecularly-Imprinted Single Layer Graphene

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: CBD14102

    Polestar Technologies Inc. proposes a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project to develop a chemical sensor for detection of chemical-warfare agents. The designed sensor combines selectivity of Molecularly-Imprinted Polymer (MIP) with sensitivity of single-layer graphene sheet. Detection will be based on radio frequency (RF) based impedance. The proposed sensor will be robust, highly dep ...
