  1. 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 ...

  2. Open Water- A Citizen Science Monitoring Platform

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ensuring the health of coastal marine ecosystems has emerged as one of the primary environmental concerns of this century. Frequent monitoring of water quality is required to establish baseline levels and enable early detection of problems. Citizen science programs have been shown to provide a highly effective method of monitoring water quality. Creare is developing an open-sou ...

  3. A Compact and Agile Fixed-Wing UAS for VTOL Shipboard Operations

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Commercially available unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) are not well designed to meet requirements for many atmospheric measurement applications, including deployment from ships, long endurance, and low cost. Existing multi-rotor systems suffer from limited payload and endurance. Existing fixed wing systems offer improved endurance and payload, but require significant support h ...

  4. Manual and Automated Marine Weather Observations Using Smartphones

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Accurate marine weather nowcasts and forecasts are critical requirements for mariners to maintain situational awareness and ensure safe navigation for vessels, passengers, crew, and cargo. To best achieve this, reliable observations of atmospheric and sea conditions must be available at high spatial and temporal coverage. Unfortunately, existing approaches for marine weather ob ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 (<23 pF), and high bandwidth (>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 ...

  8. 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.&nbs ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Development of a Submersible Fish Cage for Open Ocean Aquaculutre

    SBC: JPS Industries, Inc.            Topic: 831

    A need exists to develop cost effective and reliable submersible cage technology for exposed aquaculture. The team assembled as part of this SBIR incorporates JPS Industries, Great Bay Aquafarms and the University of New Hampshire. In Phase I, a design will be developed based on concepts known to work in the industry. Concepts to be investigated include a cage constructed around HDPE pipe, with ...
