  1. Inexpensive Airborne Expandable Ice Buoys (AXIB) Suitable for Marginal Ice Zone Deployment

    SBC: LBI, INC.            Topic: 838

    The proposed solution provides a low-cost practical air-droppable package for existing polar ice meteorological sensor systems. The buoy package will be configured for deployment from a fixed wing aircraft. Descent is stabilized and slowed by a parachute deployed after launch, and designed for a descent rate of 20 ft/s or less. When deployed on the ice, the buoy will erect to the vertical for o ...

  2. Station Keeping Drifting Data Buoy for Ocean and Meteorological Data Retrieval in Severe Marine Environments

    SBC: LBI, INC.            Topic: 823

    The proposed system is for a lightweight air-deployable expendable system capable of performing functions similar to existing ocean meteorological drifters, with the additional capability of maintaining station and/or repositioning itself on command. The system will keep station better by the sea anchor effect of the inactive tow motor, and has the ability to automatically regain station by towin ...

  3. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize ...

  4. Buoy Atmospheric Precipitation Sampler

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 8212

    Reliable automated collection and measurement of precipitation from moored buoys has been an elusive goal. Operation of open aperture collectors on ocean platforms is problematic, requiring constant human attention and intervention to prevent sea spray from contaminating the collected samples, and for dealing with freezing conditions in colder climates. Approaches are described that have the pot ...

  5. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...

  7. Intelligent Molecular Model Kit and Software Suite for Improving High School Chemistry Instruction and Student Achievement

    SBC: MolySym, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Model perception and understanding the spatial structure of organic molecules have historically been a source of difficulty for high school chemistry students. The classic ball-and-stick model, developed in 1865, is still used today to convey the fundamental characteristics of a molecular system. This model is an inadequate representation of a dynamic system, which fails to accurately represent ...

  8. Solid-state Broadly-tunable Milliwatt CW THz Source on Intra-cavity Frequency Conversion

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal provides a breakthrough solution to realize a compact broadly-tunable THz local-oscillator, whose tuning range covers 0.8-1.2 THz with flat output power in excess of 200 uW. The innovation is based on high efficiency intra-cavity difference frequency generation. A dual cavity laser is designed to generate two separate frequency lasers, which share an EO crystal inside the cavity for ...

  9. Reconfigurable Scanning Millimeter-wave Polarimetric Radar for Airborne Observation of Clouds

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: 821

    This Phase I SBIR project describes our plan to develop a compact scanning polarimetric cloud radar for observations of sea spray from a variety of airborne platforms. Our effort will focus on the design of a compact, lightweight W-band polarimetric scanning radar system that will be suitable to operate onboard the NOAA P3 or NOAA/NASA Altair UAV aircraft. Phase I design activities will include ...

  10. Low-Cost Integrated Multi-Channel Microwave Radiometer Receivers for Hurricane Surface Wind Structure Measurement

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: 837

    This proposal describes the development of low-cost, microwave integrated circuit receivers for a synthetic aperture Hurricane Imaging Radiometer (HIRad). The HIRad system, designed to generate high resolution ocean surface wind speed data in a push-broom imaging mode, will provide a variety of benefits, including improved hurricane model initialization and detection of fine-scale storm structure ...
