  1. Automated Sonde Launching System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Balloon-borne radiosondes are used extensively to collect meteorological data in atmospheric research programs funded by NOAA, WMO, DOD, DOE and others. The launch of radiosondes requires skilled personnel at each launch site to perform tasks such as balloon filling, sonde pre-conditioning and attachment, and physical release of the equipment. At present no low-cost, simple, lightweight, and rob ...

  2. Head-Up Display for Mariners

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed NOAA SBIR Project will demonstrate the feasibility of a low-cost Head-Up Display (HUD) for mariners, that will display 2 and 3-dimensional navigation and nautical chart data. The capabilities of the Phase 1 HUD system will be based on operational requirements determined during the NOAA SBIR research phase. The proposed HUD requirements of other classes of ships and marine craft wil ...

  3. Surface Selective Chiral Detection: A New Metrology Technique

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    The near chiral purity of the biosphere leads to a vast array of chiro-specific physiological responses. This chiro-specificity, in turn, gives rise to the need for the manufacturing of enantiomerically pure chiral chemicals, such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals, food additives, pigments, etc. Critical to the efficacy of both chiro-specific biology and chiro-synthesis/separation are the interfacial ...

  4. Compact, Turnable Diode Laser for Water-Vapor Spectroscopy

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a compact external cavity stabilization system, which will employ independent electro-optic control over the optical path length of the cavity and a wavelength-selective element. The system should be able to cover a 30 nm range and give mode-hop-free tuning over 20 nm intervals. The design of the feedback system will be compatible with any commercially available laser diode from 63 ...

  5. Chemically Active Fruit Label for the Visual Estimation of Fruit Ripeness

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Certain fruits do not change color as they ripen and hence it may be difficult for consumers to select fruit that is ready to eat. Melons and winter pears are examples of fruit that is difficult to select. Most fruit is now individually labeled and this project will develop a label that will change color as the fruit approaches ripeness. This colorimetric label will provide ...

  7. Marketing Plan to Export, Plant, Monitor and Evaluate Seed Potatoes in China

    SBC: Alaska Green Gold Company            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: China is the largest producer and user of potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) in the world, growing approximately 50 million tons per year. They need almost 3 million tons of seed potatoes per year and have banned the importation of new seed potatoes for over 17 years. China has a significant potato disease problem, and by 2003 will authorize the importation of 'certified' seed pot ...

  8. Biotechnology for Commercial Production of Edible Nostoc as a New Aquatic Crop Plant

    SBC: ALGAEN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Nostoc commune is an edible cyanobacterium forming the spherical macrocolony, which is used as a potent herbal medicine and dietary supplement. Due to its nutraceutical and pharmacological value, the N. commune has received increasing attention, and the market demand has grown drastically during the last decade. However, low yield and unstable quality caused by inadequate pr ...

  9. Commercialization of Versazyme, A Keratinase Product, for Use in Poultry Food

    SBC: BIORESOURCE INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The small intestine of the newly hatched chick and is immature and undergoes significant morphological, biochemical and physiological changes during the first 10 days post hatch. After this initial period, the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the young monogastric animals becomes more capable of digesting and utilizing more nutrients. Chicks and poults during the first few da ...
