  1. Developing and Improving Commercial Marine Algal Culture in the United States

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Maine Fresh Sea Farms (MFSF) will build a multi-species, multi-season prototype farm with the goal of having crops of fresh sea vegetables available throughout the year. What isn’t utilized fresh will be dried for longer-term storage and used in other products. Our team will gather data on water quality, nutrients, light levels, and hydrodynamics to assemble profiles of key parameters that deter ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Ultrafast, Bright, and High-efficiency Scintillators for Dynamic Studies

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 04c

    Statement of the Problem Being Addressed: Hard X-ray high-speed imaging (HSI) technique is a unique research tool for studying transient phenomena in hard and soft condensed matter, in systems far from equilibrium, including materials under extreme conditions (stress, heat, etc.), failure of materials on impact, and the self-propagating exothermic reactions in metallic multilayers. The Advanced Ph ...

  7. Predictive High-Fidelity Modeling Capability for High-Brightness Photoinjectors

    SBC: Gnosys Systems Inc.            Topic: 06a

    High brightness and high average power Free Electron Lasers known as x-ray FELs, developed by DOE, are intently desired by the scientific community for their unique capabilities and for the opportunities they enable in the medical and biological sciences, such as imaging biological molecules or chemical reactions. Beam optics codes (particularly Particle-in-Cell codes) couple non-uniformity and su ...

  8. GLORA, a turn-key HPC Solution for the Locational Reliability Assessment of the Electrical Grid

    SBC: Newton Energy Group LLC            Topic: 02a

    Statement of the Problem or Situation that is Being Addressed. This project focuses primarily on resource adequacy, a critical component of power system reliability which sets design and long-term planning criteria for the type, level and location of system reserves to ensure the feasibility of reliable operation of the power system. Resource adequacy is a critical driver of power system planning ...

  9. Commercial Software for Low Pressure Industrial Applications Leveraging DOE Technology

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 02c

    Statement of the Problem or Situation That is Being Addressed: Many manufacturing processes, such as physical and vapor deposition, freeze-drying, and plasma etching, involve rarefied gas flows. Currently, simulation technologies require large computational clusters and/or were designed for use by experts. Furthermore, many industrial flows span a wide range of pressures which make application of ...

  10. An XRF Thin Film Growth Monitor

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    Statement of the Problem or Situation that is Being Addressed: Materials constructed from many ultrathin layers are increasingly used for x-ray optics in DOE laboratories and for many industrial applications. However, current tools for monitoring the growth of the film layers in situ are inadequate for the sub-angstrom measurement precision required for the newest applications. A new in situ thin ...
