  1. The Oceanic CO2 Monitor

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 822

    During Phase I, AOS produced a prototype, equilibrator-based p(CO2) monitor and performed extensive research in the laboratory and in the field to verify its operation. It is compact, has minimal environmental loading and is suitable for autonomous deployments from research vessels and oceanic platforms of opportunity. We deployed it three times on day cruises from Monterey Bay, CA; agreement wa ...

  2. NOAA Premium TV Program

    SBC: Ceilings Unlimited            Topic: 824

    Ceilings Unlimited proposes to develop a popular entertainment television show (¿The Program¿) for climate education and outreach. The Program will present tales of the human impact of climate and climate science, highlighting the role NOAA¿s climate services play in our nation¿s engagement on issues of climate and climate change. In Phase II, Ceilings Unlimited will distill the results of t ...

  3. In-Field Device for the Autonomous Detection of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxigenic Species and Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 833

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are a serious threat to coastal resources, causing impacts ranging from the contamination of seafood products with potent toxins to mortalities of wild and farmed fish and other marine animals. HABs cost the U.S. economy over $50 million annually due to the closure of fisheries and beaches and the treatment of human illness from toxin exposures. NOAA is interested in ...

  4. Short-Term Forecasting of Severe Convective Storms Using Quantitative Multi-Spectral Satellite Imagery

    SBC: Marill Enterprises (dba Woodley Weather Consultants)            Topic: 839

    The results of SBIR Phase I suggest that it will be possible to make much improved short-term severe weather forecasts (¿nowcasts¿) for severe convective storms and especially for tornadoes by using GOES multi-spectral satellite imagery in conjunction with more traditional tornado-forecasting parameters. When the clouds in a region have a strong linear profile of satellite-retrieved effective r ...

  5. Microbial Enhancement of Flax Seed to Replace Fish Oil in Salmonid Diets

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: 8110

    In Phase I, MMP combined strain selection with the company¿s innovative technology for solid substrate culture of fungi to develop a process for treating whole flax seed; creating bioenhanced flax seed nutritionally suitable for direct use as a replacement for fish oil in aquaculture feeds. This process reduced fiber content of flax seed by up to 80%, increased protein concentration from 20 to 2 ...

  6. Environmentally-Friendly Anti-Fouling Coverglass for Bio-Optical Sensors and Solar Panels

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 845

    During a successful Phase I feasibility study, Nanohmics¿ scientists were able to incorporate environmentally-friendly algaecides into hard, optical quality polymers for use as coverglass materials. These transparent coverglass materials stopped all marine algae growth on the glass for well over a month. The Phase II development will further this research by incorporating natural product and/or ...

  7. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheic Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    Accurate, high resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and ocean surface wind fields within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase II effort will build on the Phase I project successes to realize an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar (AWRAP) capable of providing these winds with up to 15-meter vertical re ...

  8. Acoustic Sensors for Detection of Persistent Organic Contaminants in Water

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 8310

    This SBIR Phase II project is for the development of an innovative, advanced microsensor for the detection of persistent organic pollutants in natural waters. The proposed sensor is a type of acoustic wave sensor fabricated via micromachining of anodic aluminum oxide, followed by coating with piezoelectric zinc oxide and analyte specific polymers. The sensor design (a flexural plate wave device) ...

  9. Improved Spawning, Fertilization, Rearing, and Grow-out Methodologies for the Culture of the Sablefish

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 815

    Metabolism and physiology research on the sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) conducted in Phase I of this research established that this fish is highly suited to culture conditions typically found in the Pugent Sound or Straight of Juan de Fuca waterways of the state of Washington. In this research, we will examine techniques to improve spawning of captive brood fish, increase fertilization success, ...

  10. Multiath Mitigation GPS Antenna/Receiver System for Geodetic Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop and demonstrate a multipath mitigating antenna/receiver system for GPS geodetic applications. Our proposed system consists of a dual-channel antenna that provides spatial discrimination between the direct satellite signal and multipath signals, coupled with enhancements to the receiver architecture including multiple correlators to estimate multipath ...
