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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Operational Scanning Radar Altimeter for Real-Time Reporting of Directional Ocean Wave Spectra

    SBC: PROSENSING, INC.            Topic: 8317

    This Phase I SBIR Proposal describes design concepts for a solid-state scanning radar altimeter suitable for operational measurement of ocean wave spectra from hurricane reconnaissance aircraft. A compact, solid-state radar design is proposed, suitable for operation from a wing pod, mounted on a P-3 or C-130 aircraft. Using a high compression ratio linear FM chirp waveform, the proposed design c ...

  6. Affordable Microwave Salinity Sensor for Near-Shore Platforms

    SBC: PROSENSING, INC.            Topic: 835

    This Phase I SBIR proposal describes the development of a low-cost microwave salinity sensor specifically designed for single point sea surface salinity (SSS) measurements from a buoy, ship or ocean tower. Existing airborne L-band radiometers developed by our company and others have demonstrated the practicality of mapping SSS from airborne platforms. These complex radiometers employ multi-beam ...

  8. Large Soft X-Ray Fluorescence Detector

    SBC: Detector Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Detector Technology will develop and manufacture a 10cm2 large format cone. The cone will be based on a ceramic substrate then coated with glass frit. The cone will then be attached to a standard single channel multiplier. Detector Technology will also investigate different low work function coatings to improve the first strike statistic of fluorescence. Simultaneous research in conjunction with s ...

  10. A Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA)

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RSI will develop a technology to improve fire fighter visibility and enable tracking of position/identity. The Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA) will use RSI's microscale retroreflectors, a near-infrared (IR) coating and near-IR sources pulsing on alternating video frames to encode fire fighter identities, and a near-IR video camera. These grain-of-sand-sized markers wo ...
