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. Self-Configuring Residential Conditioned Air Zoning System for Low Energy Homes

    SBC: Steven Winter Associates, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) hereby proposes to undertake research to develop a self-configuring residential conditioned air zoning system for low load energy homes. The Phase I prototype will feature zone nodes and a master controller. The zone nodes will measure and wirelessly report environmental conditions to the central controller, and modulate a damper based on commands received from ...

  2. Measuring the Concentration of Host-cell Proteins in Biomanufacturing Using Silicon Nanowire Array Sensors

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: NA

    Our innovation is a low cost, sensitive, quantitative biosensor that can detect many biomarkers on the same chip. Our sensor consists of vertically aligned silicon nanowires. The silicon nanowires’ high surface area to volume ratio makes them sensitive to the environment around them and can thus lead to high sensitivity detection. Each of the nanowires can be functionalized to be sensitive to ei ...

  3. Riptide Hypoxic Zone AUV

    SBC: Riptide Autonomous Solutions, LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Buoyancy driven oceanographic gliders, although reasonably cost effective, have challenges operating in the zones due to high gradients in water density. Under this topic, Riptide will provide a cost-effective autonomous undersea vehicle (AUV) design leveraged from Riptide's family of man-portable AUVs that can more effectively map the hypoxic areas. The stated goals of this to ...

  4. Harmful Algal Bloom Species, Toxin and Total Phytoplankton Identification System (HABStats) for HandHeld, Remotely Networked or Submersible Operation

    SBC: CoastalOceanVision, Inc            Topic: 821

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and commercialize the next generation of low cost, low power, ruggedized, and accurate phytoplankton single cell and whole colony counting, characterization and classification system called HABStats. We will accomplish this using the following three unique and innovative approaches: 1) High-throughput color, Light Field Imaging Flow Cytometry to acquire mo ...

  5. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Triton Systems, Inc. proposes development of the Open-Source Oceanographic Asset Recovery Beacon (OpenORB) that will allow the deployment of coastal instrumentation moorings with affordable protection against loss. This open-source kit would significantly reduce the purchase price of a commercial location beacon by allowing the end-user to assemble a customized system with mini ...

  6. Developing a robust and scalable calibration approach to low-cost AQ sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Poor air quality represents a major public health risk, contributing to an estimated one of every eight deaths worldwide. Low-cost air quality sensors have developed rapidly over the last few years and offer the opportunity to make air quality monitoring inexpensive and widespread. However, low-cost sensors are currently unable to deliver accurate, reliable data due to a lack o ...

  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 ...

  8. Development of a portable 3-dimensional variation (3DVAR) data assimilation module for NOAA

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 814

    We propose to develop and deliver a generalized 3DVAR data assimilation module, in an opensource and non-proprietary programming language, which is compatible with both ROMS and FVCOM and easily incorporated into the existing NOAA operational forecast system (OFS). Our innovation is to develop a data assimilation roadmap contrasting 3DVAR with other advanced techniques such as multi-scale 3DVAR, 4 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. High-Throughput Single-Nanoparticle Magnetic Analysis Platform Using Diamond Magnetic Imaging

    SBC: Quantum Diamond Technologies Inc            Topic: 90109

    Magnetic nanoparticles are powerful tools over a wide range of industries, but have particularly powerful biomedical applications for clinical and research diagnostics, clinical therapy, and basic life science research. These applications require consistent sources for magnetic nanoparticles with narrow distributions of magnetic properties, but no technology is now commercially available for manuf ...
