  1. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  3. Small Satellite Cloud Observation System

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 9601

    We propose the design of an optical instrument package capable of making cloud observations and deployable on a CubeSat. The design will be based on decades of research in cloud remote sensing and each spectral channel will be comprised of a commercial-off-the-shelf camera and a spectral filter as needed. The base design will be comprised of three channels, two in the shortwave infrared and one in ...

  4. Enabling BLOS UAS Operations through a Diverse-Source Global Positioning System

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 9501

    Enabling BLOS operations in the National Airspace System is largely an issue of improved sensing. Under the UTM rules, BLOS operations require performance authorization from the FAA centered around navigation, communications, sharing of intent, avoiding other aircraft, and connecting to the FAA in near real-time. The current plan initially is for these performance metrics to be evaluated by the FA ...

  5. An Innovative Approach to Seafloor Classification: Applying Advanced Unsupervised Machine Learning in Complex and Variable Bottom Types with Multispectral Satellite Imagery

    SBC: TCarta Marine LLC            Topic: 9603

    Machine learning and unsupervised classification have been applied to seafloor classification and benthic mapping using multibeam echosounders (MBES), Light Ranging and Detection (LiDAR), airborne hyperspectral, underwater optical cameras, and satellite imagery. Regardless of the sensor, data dimensionality reduction is an integral processing step of seabed mapping workflows . The most commonly im ...

  6. A Low-Cost Atmospheric Aerosol Monitoring System for Boundary Layer Air Quality, Visibility, Cloud Ceiling Height and Aerosol Properties

    SBC: BJE Environmental Optics LLC            Topic: 9601

    This proposal addresses subtopic 9.6.01, Low-cost Oceanic and Atmospheric Sensors and Observing Systems. It is proposed that two instruments for measuring atmospheric aerosols be commercialized to operate automatically and routinely. Both instruments have been used in research settings for many years and share several aspects of technology. They could both be commercialized with significant advant ...

  7. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  8. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and lack generalizability from one location (or season) to the next, making them impractical for implementation. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to improve and validate a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) ...
