  1. Modular Micro-Weather Station for Use in Open Ocean and Coastal Marine Environments

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    NOAA collects meteorological measurements in open ocean and coastal marine environments from research vessels, data buoys and commercial ships for use in numerical weather prediction, global climate change research, and severe storm identification. The current system cost for robust marine automated meteorological stations is too high to allow ubiquitous use on all the available platforms. Throu ...

  2. High Precision Monitoring Instrumentation for Background Methane

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Our Phase I effort was successful. We upgraded our baseline methane analyzer to meet or surpass the levels of performance posed by DOC solicitation subtopic 8.1.1R: sensitivity of 10 ppb (dry mole fraction), low maintenance for extended periods at remote field sites, less than one liter (NTP) of reference gas per day, and negligible response to platform motion. The analyzer is a novel applicatio ...

  3. Advanced Microwave Antenna for Airborne Soil Moisture and Salinity Mapping

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: 8110

    The NOAA Environmental Technology Laboratory seeks to perform advanced wide-area mapping of soil moisture and salinity. This requires a large scanning antenna with aerodynamic form, narrow beamwidth, high efficiency, and dual polarization. This antenna system must provide operation at L-band (1400-1427 MHz) and C-band (6.0-6.5 GHz). This large aperture must maintain stable performance independe ...

  4. Web-Based Tools and Databases for Multi-Hazard Contingency Plans and Ongoing Management of Natural Marine Sanctuaries

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 847

    An on-line GIS-oriented management and planning system for four National Marine Sanctuaries will be designed. It will contain static databases of physical, chemical, biological, geological, cultural, historical and archeological information of value to Sanctuary managers. It will link with ongoing oceanographic and meteorological monitoring systems to allow near real time access to their data. ...

  5. Fluorescence Imager for Rapid Estimates of the Distribution and Abundance of Coral Recruits

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 831

    New methods are needed to help marine scientists conduct studies of the processes limiting or promoting coral recruitment and survivorship. The small size and low visual contrast of coral recruits in natural settings make them difficult to impossible to locate efficiently. Many coral recruits contain strongly fluorescent pigments, and viewed in the proper way this fluorescence dramatically incre ...

  6. Inexpensive Submersible Long-Term Dissolved Oxygen Recorder

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase II SBIR Project to complete the development of an inexpensive compact optical system for continuous dissolved oxygen monitoring in areas at risk of eutrophication induced by hypoxia and anoxia. The proposed monitor will facilitate the development of improved theoretical models by enabling better data collection with regard to spread and degree of oxyge ...

  7. Miniaturized and Robust FTS Sensor for Marine Chemical Analysis

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: 822

    Vescent Photonics proposes to construct a miniaturized, robust, Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) for rapid, in-situ marine chemical analysis. A t the heart of the proposed FTS sensor is our innovative, electro-optic technology, which provides a replacement for mechanical mirror translation. This technology enables a chip-scale, fully integrated FTS sensor with exceptional attributes: 1) small ...

  8. An Innovative Low-Cost Dropsonde using Integrated Flexible Circuit Design

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 819

    Upper atmospheric measurements of temperature, humidity, pressure and winds are required daily at hundreds of locations around the world to drive numerical weather prediction forecast models. In the US these critical measurements are made by Radiosondes carried aloft by balloons filled with helium and tracked by 104 NWS ground stations. However, data-sparse regions off the west coast can only be a ...

  9. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  10. Effective, Low Cost Ethanol Sensor System for Repeat DWI Vehicles, with Wireless "Police Alert" Features

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Alcohol related crashes are a serious public health issue, resulting in an estimated 17,400 deaths and 292,000 injuries in 2003. Giner, Inc. proposes to combine innovative ethanol sensors, sampling techniques and wireless capabilities to provide a novel, inexpensive and convenient law enforcement tool for detecting alcohol use in the vehicles of repeat DWI offenders. The proposed sensor system h ...
