  1. CHEMICAL SENSING ELECTRODES

    SBC: ANATRACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE STUDY OF OCEAN PROCESSES SUCH AS MINERAL DISSOLUTION, ION SPECIATION AND REDOX EQUILIBRIA AS WELL AS EFFLUENT AND POLLUTION MONITORING REQUIRE ACCURATE AND PRECISE MEASUREMENTS OF BOTH MAJOR AND MINOR CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS. ALTHOUGH SPECTROPHOTOMETRY AND FLAME PHOTOMETRY HAVE BEEN USED FOR SEA WATER ANALYSIS, POTENTIONMETRY WITH ION-SELECTIVE ELECTRODES IS THE MOST COMMON-METHODOLOGY, PARTICUL ...

  2. A Miniatruized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year. To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered. As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to develop an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use. The technical innovation will be to develop a reversible ...

  3. MILLIMETER WAVE ANTENNA

    SBC: Millitech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    MILLITECH PROPOSES TO DESIGN A COMPACT OFFSET CASSEGRAIN ANTENNA SYSTEM TO BE USED AT A WAVELENGTH OF 8 MM FOR CLOUD RESEARCH. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO GIVE THE LOWSIDELOBE LEVELS CHARACTERISTIC OF AN OFFSET REFLECTOR WHILE GIVING POLARIZATION ISOLATION BETTER THAN 20 DB. THE TRADE-OFF BETWEEN HIGH POLARIZATION ISOLATION AND COMPACT SIZE WILL BE RESOLVED BY USING A GAUSSIAN OPTICS LENS ANTEN ...

  4. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    The NOAA strategic vision is to help realized ¿an informed society that uses a comprehensive understanding of the role of the oceans, coasts, and atmosphere in the global ecosystem to make the best social and economic decisions.¿ Never is this vision more applicable as it is to tropical cyclones (TCs). These systems pose one of the largest natural threats to our society and economy. The NO ...

  5. WORKLOAD ASSESSMENT TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE OPTIMIZATION OF DATA LINK CONTROLLER

    SBC: NTI, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE MODE S DATA LINK UNDER DEVELOPMENT BY THE FAA IS AN ESSENTIAL UPGRADE TO THE EXISTING AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC) SYSTEM. IN ORDER TO INSURE THE IMPROVEMENTS IN SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY OF ATC SERVICES MEDIATED BY THIS DATA LINK, IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO ASSESS ITS EFFECTS ON THE WORKLOAD AND PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES OF AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS. CONSEQUENTLY, IN PHASE I, NTI INCORPORATED WILL DEVELOP ...

  6. A New Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Motorcycle Detection and Classification

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Detection, classification, and characterization are the key to enhancing motorcycle safety, operations and travel estimation. Motorcycle fatalities are currently estimated at 30 times those of auto fatalities per Vehicle Mile Traveled (VMT). Although it has been an active research area for many years, motorcycle detection and classification still remains as a challenging task. The goal of Phase I ...

  9. Tools and Materials for Hands-On Climate and Weather Science Education

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The majority of students and educators would probably agree that students are better able to grasp scientific concepts from the use of hands-on activities and other inquiry-based educational practices than from typical lecture problem solving methods. Anasphere, Inc is working to make inquiry based tools and materials for weather and climate education more readily available for students and educat ...
