  1. Development of a Compact Aerosol Instrumentation Suite for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: BRECHTEL MANUFACTURING, INC.            Topic: 8213

    To assess the climate impacts of atmospheric aerosols, global datasets of aerosol properties including the number size distribution, chemical composition, and absorption coefficient are needed yet generally unavailable. Knowledge of the vertical distributions of these key properties is also required to properly model column extinction. We propose to develop a new aerosol measurement system, the ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Modeling Offshore Aquaculture: Comprehensive Planning and Permitting Software

    SBC: System Science Applications            Topic: 8115

    We will develop a fish farm simulation model to assess the operations and impact of a diverse range of fish farms installed in offshore waters of the U.S. and as a means to expedite planning and permitting. The information system is needed by administrators to establish regulations, operators to obtain permits, and investors to assess risks and opportunities. We have already begun development an ...

  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. Signal State Transition Software Development

    SBC: Advanced Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Advance Technologies is proposing a formal software development effort to translate the State Transition Logic algorthims developed under NCHRP Project 3-66. We are proposing the use of free software such as GNAT, Linux and Umbrello to assist us in the software development. Advanced Technologies has been developing real time, safety critical, Ada83/Ada95 software for twenty years. We plan to use U ...

  6. Driver Training and Safety System (DTASS)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is little question that drowsy driving and driver inattention are significant problems leading to large numbers of accident and loss of life. These sentiments are strongly confirmed in two recently published NHTSA reports make clear the relationship between driver inattention and vehicle crashes and near-crashes. Our approach will be based on measuring the standard measures of fatigue and ...

  7. High Resolution Electromagnetic Imaging and Decision Support for Pipeline Life Management

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal relates to the application of electromagnetic imaging of pipelines and coatings for damage detection, condition assessment and enhanced decision support and life management. JENTEK's inductive Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM) sensor and MWM-Arrays have demonstrated sensitivity and resolution capability superior to conventional nondestructive examination technology in a number o ...

  8. Pilot for Rail Passenger Cab Cars

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    TIAX LLC proposes a Phase I SBIR project that will result in a preliminary conceptual design for rail passenger cab car pilots that will reduce the risk for derailment following a grade crossing collision with an automobile. Several tasks are proposed, including: a review of existing pilot designs by contacting car builders and operators; a review of grade crossing accidents; the development of ...

  9. Methodology for Identification on High Value Biomass Feedstocks

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

    Up until the early twentieth century, several commodity chemicals were produced by the pyrolysis of hardwoods (e.g., methanol, acetic acid, acetone) or the extraction of softwoods (turpentine, terpenes, rosins, pitches, and tars). The expected long term increase in petroleum and natural gas prices will cause a gradual but steady return to biomass feedstocks over the next several decades. Other dri ...

  10. Field Device for Determining Atomization Properties of Agrochemical Tank Mixes

    SBC: ARENA PESTICIDE MANAGEMENT            Topic: N/A

    Spray drift from pesticide applications is a significant issue for U.S. agriculture. Spray drift, and efficacy of agrochemicals, are strongly affected by the droplet size spectra and the physical properties of the spray. Applicators have general guidance on nozzle selection but most reference tables are for water or water+surfactant mixture. Pesticide labels often specify the droplet size with whi ...
