  1. Quantum Cascade Laser Monitor for N0, N02 and 03

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop a high accuracy monitor for the photo-chemically coupled pollutants nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone using infrared absorption spectroscopy with quantum cascade (QC) lasers. The target molecules are monitored at air quality stations worldwide using instruments, which require frequent calibration and are not sufficiently specific (in the case of NO2). This QC monit ...

  2. Robust MEMS Viscosity Meter for Condition-based Maintenance

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    The use of real time, in situ measurements of lubricant/refrigerant viscosity can reduce maintenance costs and system downtime and improve system longevity, by allowing maintenance personnel to determine identify and correct mechanical problems, before they cause more serious problems. With the advent of MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS), the opportunity exists to develop small and inexpensive ...

  3. Improved Manufacturing Processes for Circular Array Detectors

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

    Channel electron multipliers are used in a variety of applications including synchrotron research facilities. It is imperative that channel electron multiplier technology be improved for this type of application. Currently, the manufacturing process of channel multipliers is very inconsistent. When running an array of detectors each detector must act similarly. If the detectors are not matched the ...

  4. Chitosan-based Foul-release Coatings for Aquaculture

    SBC: E PAINT COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    Rapid biofouling of aquaculture netting necessitates frequent cleaning. Cleaning by scrubbing or pressure washing can consume as much as 40% of total labor. Chemical methods of biofouling control are not approved for the aquaculture industry. Silicone elastomers that release biofouling have been developed. However, these ¿foul-release coatings¿ are often more expensive than the netting itself ...

  5. Uniform Large Area, High Emisivity Blackbody Radiation Source Based on Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this program Foster-Miller (FMI)proposes to build on its extensive experience with processing and characterization of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT) to develop a high emissivity (>0.999), large area (>600 cm2), variable temperature (330-600K), uniform emitting, black body radiation source that takes advantage of the unusually high emissivity of carbon nanotubes. Using SWNT's furnished by ...

  6. GPS-Tracked Buoy for Hydrographic Survey Applications

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A long standing problem in oceanography and hydrography is accurate real-time measurement of offshore water levels. The Phase 1 research involved investigating a wide range of recent techniques and technologies, and performing analyses and trade-off studies to evaluate, select, and integrate them into a GPS-tracked buoy system (buoy, shore reference station for differential GPS, and repeater stati ...

  8. Measuring Depth Profiles of Scattering in the Ocean

    SBC: SOFTRONICS, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    LIDAR (laser radar) is used for oceanographic research, and emits a short light pulse whose return echoes are digitized and analyzed to determine the composition and location of underwater objects. This requires a digitizer with high sampling speed, wide bandwidth commensurate with the pulse width, and high dynamic range. What is needed in reality is a 14-16 bit, 1 Gsample/second (Gs/s) analog-to- ...

  9. A Low-cost Mobile Automated Sonde Launching System

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We describe a radiosonde launch system that is automatic, robust, fault-tolerant, and mobile. Once loaded, for each cycle the system will automatically: 1) Determine ambient conditions, 2) power up a radiosonde, 3) tune the receiver, 4) initialize sonde communication, 5) performs pre-launch calibration, 6) start data acquisition software, 7)inflate a balloon and verify inflation, 8) release the ba ...

  10. Seat Belt Non-usage Warning System

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Highway fatalities per 100 million vehicle-miles have declined from a high of 5.1 in 1960 to 1.5 in 1999. Increased use of seat belts undoubtedly is responsible for a significant portion of this decline. The goal of DOT¿s ¿Buckle Up America¿ campaign, initiated in 1997, is to increase the seat belt usage rate to 90 percent by 2005. However, current seat belt usage falls short of this goal. ...
