  1. "Big Eye" Binoculars Extension Kit for Automating Bearing/Range Measurement and Image Storage

    SBC: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 823

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc. (R3-DS) proposes to develop and commercialize an extension kit for "Big-Eye" and other binoculars that will automatically compute and store distance and bearing assessments by combining vertical reticle and stereoscopy measurement with motion analysis techniques. It will also capture and store photographic and video evidence of what the observer sees t ...

  2. A Single Aperature Dual-Wavelength Dual Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and nation’s economy. From an average of $10B (2005 dollars) annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry that is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets being lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now-casting and forecasti ...

  3. A Tube-Deployed Expendable UAV for Atmospheric Sensing

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 8213

    NOAA is pursuing sustained, in-situ sensing technology to support improved atmospheric modeling of the upper ocean boundary environment, including the air-sea interface, during turbulent storms. Improved atmospheric modeling in this critical region will lead to better forecasting and support NOAA's mandate to protect property and save lives. Small, unmanned aircraft, equipped with atmospheric sens ...

  5. Automated HCl laser monitor for long term and flight deployments

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Tropospheric oxidation capacity is dominated by HOx photochemistry, however halogen atoms and oxides significantly affect these chemical cycles. A sensitive and robust measurement of gaseous HCl is critically important to improve our understanding of halogen chemistry and its impacts on the spatial and temporal oxidation capacity of the atmosphere. This is vital to evaluating the life time of shor ...

  7. Automated peak fitting and analysis software for advanced gas chromatography and mass spectrometer systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 827

    Recent advances in gas chromatographic and mass spectrometric techniques for atmospheric measurements have led to highly complex data sets that have overwhelmed the capabilities of current data analysis software. We propose a new method for the automated reduction of chromatographic data using peak-fitting algorithms. By relying upon constrained peak-fit parameterization, accuracy of peak identifi ...

  9. Carbon Nanotube Array-based Nanosensor for Autonomous and Direct Measurement of Carbonate

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825R

    This program is aimed at the development of a deployable sensor for direct measurement of carbonate ions in saline waters with a sensitivity of 5 μM. The sensor combines the selectivity of carbonate ionophore with the unique structure of a carbon nanotube array to achieve a large dynamic range, high specificity and sensitivity. Phase I was focused on demonstrating the proof-of-principle concept f ...
