  1. The Full Integration of a Portable Bacterial Concentrator with a Pathogen Detector Device

    SBC: OMNIVIS INC            Topic: 90

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to integrate an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator with a handheld pathogen detection system to enable ultra-low cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including in Yemen, where in the first 5 months of 2020 has had 110,000 suspected cases. Current methods used to detect the chole ...

  2. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  3. Optimized CO2 Gas Sensor for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 822R

    The objective of the proposed work is to create low cost, low power sensors for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. In our Phase I effort, we showed that Dioxide Materials’ miniature CO2 sensors have the speed and sensitivity to meet NOAA’s requirements for sensing ocean carbon. The objective of the proposed work is to further develop the sensors so that they can be used directly in NOAA ...

  4. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Bell Aquaculture            Topic: 92

    Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources, specifically animal byproduct meals, and its potential significant impacts on marine fish production. Th ...

  5. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    Peregrine Power, LLC will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will be entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque ...

  6. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise equiva ...

  7. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known. Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use. The Tec ...

  8. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  9. Ultra-High Vacuum Compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer

    SBC: PARALLAX RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    Parallax Research, Inc. proposes to build an Ultra-High Vacuum compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer (WDS) that can be used on small spot Auger, XPS, TEM and FESEM analytical instruments for elemental analysis. The effort draws upon Parallax's experience in designing WDS systems for Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) and for XRF. This new type of x-ray spectrometer will eliminate th ...

  10. Refining Culture Technology for Growing Spiny Lobsters, Panulirus argus, from Pueruli to Market in Puerto Rico

    SBC: Snapperfarm, Inc.            Topic: 841

    Spiny lobster, Panulirus argus, aquaculture on a global scale is a small fraction of the total annual wild harvest. The ability to advance the culture of spiny lobsters will reduce the stress on the natural stock while providing a highly desired product. The culture cycle is dependent on the collection of lobster pueruli from the wild, due to the difficulty in rearing the larvae through the year ...
