  2. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  3. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: A Compact, Low Cost and Handheld Sensor for the Detection and Quantifications of Organic Compound Contaminants in Drinking Water

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel chemical sensor technology for inline water quality monitoring. Currently, gas chromatography coupled mass spectroscopy is the most widely used technique for water quality analysis; however, the method is costly, time consuming, and can only be performed by well-trained personnel in a laboratory setting. To meet ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Sketch-based interaction for designing for laser cutters

    SBC: Blank Slate Systems            Topic: EA

    The innovation of sketch-based interaction for agile manufacturing substantially lowers the barrier to entry for novice engineers and designers. Low-cost rapid prototyping hardware -- 3-D printers and laser cutters -- offers tremendous educational potential, enabling students to personally design, engineer, and build complex artifacts. This potential can only be realized if students have modeling ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: One Step Flash-Sintering of Multilayer Structures for SOFC Below 1000°C: a New Manufacturing Paradigm for Commercial Viability

    SBC: LUPINE LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the commercial potential of flash-sintering to enhance the manufacturability and performance of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs). The co-sintering of heterogeneous multilayer ceramics remains a technical barrier to the commercialization of SOFCs for two reasons: 1) the materials for the multilayer structure require different pr ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Optical Enzymatic Biosensor for Real-Time, Continuous, In-Situ Measurements of Trichloroethene

    SBC: OptiEnz Sensors, LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop a cell-free optical enzymatic biosensor for monitoring trichloroethene (TCE) concentrations in water. The biosensing concept will be implemented in an optical fiber format, in which optical biosensor tips are linked to a small electro-optical unit. Chemical detection takes place on biosensor tips that are coated wit ...
