  1. ON-LINE PROCESS CONTROL SENSOR FOR PARTICLE SIZE

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

    A PARTICLE SIZE SENSOR IS REQUIRED FOR ON-LINE PROCESS CON- TROL IN A METAL POWDER FORMING FACILITY. INSTRUMENTS AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY FOR THIS SENSING RELY ON MEASUREMENTS OF LIGHT SCATTERING AT VERY SMALL ANGULAR INCREMENTS. IT IS PROBABLE THAT THE HIGHLY TURBULENT ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THE METAL POWDERS ARE FORMED WILL PRODUCE SUFFICIENT ANGULAR DE-VIATION OF THE PROBING LIGHT BEAM TO INVALIDAT ...

  2. Formaldehyde and Hydrogen Peroxide Instrument for Flight Based Measurements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 8314

    Hydrogen peroxide formation represents a loss of gas phase HOx and results in the transfer of atmospheric oxidative capacity to the liquid phase. Measurements of formaldehyde and H2O2 are vital to fully elucidate the atmospheric mechanisms associated with ozone formation and the formation of inorganic and secondary organic aerosol throughout the atmosphere. Tunable infrared differential absorpti ...

  3. Predictive Modeling of Solar Insolation in the Marine Environment for Solar Power System Applications

    SBC: Irradiance, Inc.            Topic: 831

    We aim to develop analytic tools and instruments to improve performance predictions for photovoltaic power systems on buoys. Using these capabilities, we can design more powerful and reliable power systems and provide NDBC more power to operate offshore data buoys and serve the Nation with enhanced observations of the marine environment. Present day buoy power systems are feasible because they u ...

  4. Nutrient Sensor for Observing Systems

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 814

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will design an optical sensor to provide a cost-effective and ruggedized solution to the detection of nutrient loading for long deployment periods in the ocean environment. The proposed sensor is based on an existing instrument that has been already been developed and has demonstrated the usefulness of using optical methods to determine the nitrate, nitrite, bisulfide ...

  5. Submersible In-Situ Grain Sizing Device

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 8114

    A novel, miniaturized optical sensor for in-situ monitoring of underwater sediment grain size is described. This device employs light scattering measurement techniques previously developed by Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) for the U.S. Navy in a compact, powerful tool for acquiring quantitative information on particle size. Combining this innovative, miniature and inexpensive technology with unde ...

  6. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheric Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    High resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower boundary layer wind field and ocean surface wind field within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase I effort will focus on realizing an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar capable of providing these winds with 15-meter vertical resolution from a minimum of 5000 feet to, and including, the ocea ...
