The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Fouling-Resistant Inorganic MF Membrane for Improved Food and Beverage Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened, especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites. Varroa destructor, in particular, is lethal to many colonies, decimating both feral and managed honey ...

  6. Development of acoustic cavitation based affordable milk processing technology for small rural dairy farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Milk supply by the small dairy farms to the local markets not only reduces transportation costs but also provides cultural and economic benefits to the communities. However, the majority of the milk processing operations are carried out in large plants at the wholesale level. Such capacities and the large capital requirement act as a barrier to entry for small farmers and prohibit them to get a b ...

  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. A Modular, Skid-Mounted Biomass Pyrolysis Unit

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 01

    Political, economic, and environmental considerations require that the national dependence on petroleum-based transportation fuels, especially imported oil, be reduced by accelerating the development of domestic renewable alternatives. The United States has the potential to generate, sustainably, about 1.3 billion dry tons of biomass per year, and bio-oil derived from this renewable feedstock cou ...

  9. Development of Aircraft Borne 13CH4 Analyzer Using a Continuous Wave Quantum Cascade Infrared Laser Spectrometer

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 47

    Methane is the second most important atmospheric greenhouse gas after CO2, yet its global sources and sinks are still inadequately characterized. Recent observations that industrial plants may account for a substantial fraction of atmospheric methane have lead to an increased emphasis on studies of ecosystem CH4 fluxes, with particular interest in using isotopic composition to identify specific p ...

  10. Aerosol Mass Spectrometry via Laser-Induced Incandescence Particle Vaporization

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 50

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and carbonaceous species are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass in many locations. In particular, black carbon (BC), formed in combustion processes, is believed to have a stro ...
