  1. Developing a robust and scalable calibration approach to low-cost AQ sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Poor air quality represents a major public health risk, contributing to an estimated one of every eight deaths worldwide. Low-cost air quality sensors have developed rapidly over the last few years and offer the opportunity to make air quality monitoring widespread at an affordable price. However, low-cost sensors are currently unable to deliver accurate, reliable data due to a lack of understandi ...

  3. Phase II Commercialization of HABStats: A Harmful Algal Bloom Species, Toxin and Total Phytoplankton Identification System

    SBC: CoastalOceanVision, Inc            Topic: 821

    In Phase I, we developed a prototype instrument for counting, sizing and identifying both non-toxic and toxic Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) species. We did this by integrating three innovative technologies: High-throughput color, Light Field Imaging Flow Cytometry to acquire morphological information for each cell, Raman spectroscopy to acquire species-specific molecular information on pigments and tr ...

  5. Automated Visual Anthropometry for Three-Dimensional Assessment of Respirators (AVATAR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    Military respirator masks provide the Warfighter with life critical protection against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) threats. To ensure the safety, comfort, and effectiveness of the American Warfighter, it is essential that every Warfighter be assigned a respirator that is properly sized and fitted. However, current methods for sizing and fitting respirators depend on manu ...

  6. Sequential Phase II Proposal for Smartphone Application for Mask Sizing and Projecting Quantitative Fit

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    In addition to military scenarios, many environmental inhalant hazards exist in the workplace, from industrial sites to medical facilities. Frequent training and practice are an essential component of effective protection, yet valid methods for assessing proper mask fit are usually not provided beyond the minimum requirements and there is a significant lack of mask fit training to ensure that prop ...

  7. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Science Inc. (PSI) will develop a new approach to chemical vapor detection based on a novel open-path sample cell design. The PhaseI system level model predicts SNR supporting a probability of detection of 95% and a MTBFA of 168 hours for all relevant CWAs and TICs at the10 minute negligible MEG level at a 20 s measurement time. In addition to robust detection, the system design can provi ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
