  1. The Oceanic CO2 Monitor

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 822

    During Phase I, AOS produced a prototype, equilibrator-based p(CO2) monitor and performed extensive research in the laboratory and in the field to verify its operation. It is compact, has minimal environmental loading and is suitable for autonomous deployments from research vessels and oceanic platforms of opportunity. We deployed it three times on day cruises from Monterey Bay, CA; agreement wa ...

  2. All Weather Temperature and Water Vapor Profiling Radiometer for Marine Environments

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 835

    The detailed design and development of an operational radiometer for regular use in sounding temperature and humidity in the marine boundary layer on NDBC buoys is proposed. The design follows that a well demonstrated unit pioneered by the PI and Co-Is that has been used successfully in the field on ships, aircraft, and ground based sites. It relies on full (360 degree) scanning of the sky above ...

  3. Improving Radio Occulation Technologies Through Next-Generation GPS Receiver Design

    SBC: Broad Reach Engineering            Topic: 828

    The weather research community is utilizing a proven RO technique for climate modeling and numerical weather prediction; however, the current space hardware does not provide the optimum science data. This proposal will focus on proposed enhancements to the Integrated GPS Occulation Receiver (IGORTM) L1/L2 GPS flight receivers. Improvement in real time Navigation Solution from

  4. Short-Term Forecasting of Severe Convective Storms Using Quantitative Multi-Spectral Satellite Imagery

    SBC: Marill Enterprises (dba Woodley Weather Consultants)            Topic: 839

    The results of SBIR Phase I suggest that it will be possible to make much improved short-term severe weather forecasts (¿nowcasts¿) for severe convective storms and especially for tornadoes by using GOES multi-spectral satellite imagery in conjunction with more traditional tornado-forecasting parameters. When the clouds in a region have a strong linear profile of satellite-retrieved effective r ...

  5. A Prototype Net Cleaning System for Open-Ocean Aquaculture Cages

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Open-Ocean Aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several technical refinements the industry must undergo in order to maximize productivity and future expansion. We address a problem common to all off-shore open-ocean aquaculture cage systems, marine biofouling of the net mesh used for the enclosure. Significant amounts of biofoulding leads to increased pollutant ...

  6. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheic Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    Accurate, high resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and ocean surface wind fields within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase II effort will build on the Phase I project successes to realize an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar (AWRAP) capable of providing these winds with up to 15-meter vertical re ...

  7. Acoustic Sensors for Detection of Persistent Organic Contaminants in Water

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 8310

    This SBIR Phase II project is for the development of an innovative, advanced microsensor for the detection of persistent organic pollutants in natural waters. The proposed sensor is a type of acoustic wave sensor fabricated via micromachining of anodic aluminum oxide, followed by coating with piezoelectric zinc oxide and analyte specific polymers. The sensor design (a flexural plate wave device) ...

  8. Buoy Atmospheric Precipitation Sampler

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 8212

    Reliable automated collection and measurement of precipitation from moored buoys has been an elusive goal. Operation of open aperture collectors on ocean platforms is problematic, requiring constant human attention and intervention to prevent sea spray from contaminating the collected samples, and for dealing with freezing conditions in colder climates. Approaches are described that have the pot ...

  9. High-Resolution, Two-Dimensional Neutron Imaging Detector

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NOVA Scientific proposes a high-resolution neutron imaging detector having a specialized neutron-sensitive electron amplified detection stage integrated with a cross-strip electronic readout capable of centroid averaging. Phase 1 efforts demonstrated spatial resolutions of 15 µm with high detection efficiency and moderate counting rates. The Phase 2 proposed program will carry out further detec ...

  10. Operational Scanning Radar Altimeter for Real-Time Reporting of Directional Ocean Wave Spectra

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: 8317

    This Phase II SBIR project focuses on the development of an operational Scanning Radar Altimeter (SRA) intended for airborne measurement of directional ocean wave spectra. The proposed innovation is a novel solid-state digital beamforming radar, designed to replace the aging prototype SRA currently operated by NOAA. The proposed SRA will employ a 10 W solid-state transmitter and a pulse compress ...
