  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. Self-Contained Sub Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 812N

    The goal of this project is to develop, prototype, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, survey, and structural health monitoring application. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages publically available GNSS reference data from exis ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Encapsulated HI3O8 Microparticles

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: DTRA143002

    This Phase 1 project will develop a scalable manufacturing process for the production of kilogram quantities of encapsulated HI3O8 with a particle size of approximately 2 m. This project addresses the need to develop manufacturing processes and build a production capability for the manufacture of HI3O8 a halogen-containing chemical reagent for use in biocidal thermite mixtures. Akita Innovations ...

  10. Tag, Track, and Locate (TTL) technologies and concepts for combating weapons of mass destruction (CWMD).

    SBC: SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA10001

    To address the needs of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), GSI will perform in three areas during the course of this effort. 1) GSI will evaluate a new formulation, capable of self-propagating reaction with the production of an electrically conductive aerosol, for the purpose of Intrusive Electronic Equipment Defeat. This material will be evaluated against electronic equipment (PC's) and ...
