  1. A Distributed Platform Automated Balloonsonde Launcher

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Atmospheric researchers rely heavily on balloon-borne sondes to obtain altitude-dependent data called ¿vertical sounding zprofiles." Typically, trained personnel on land or sea vessels manually launch balloons at substantial cost. A relatively low-cost, adaptable, and portable automated launcher suitable for land and marine applications is highly desired. Building upon earlier work, ADA Technolog ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. High Precision Monitoring Instrumentation for the Earth's CO2 Background

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The phase I research was successful. An analyzer was designed and built, and it meets all five criteria of the DOC solicitation subtopic. We are proposing to: (1) build and incorporate copies of the analyzer into three detection systems, each to be constructed and customized for a platform of opportunity (buoy, ship,mountain); (2) make rigorous observations from each platform, lasting approximatel ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Robust Nanopopous Ceramic Microsensor Platform

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks NIST support for the development of a robust gas microsensor platform from nanoporous alumina ceramic. Conventional microsensors have limited application in harsh conditions, such as in the exhaust streams, due to their low stability at temperatures above 500¿C. Furthermore, this also limits implementation of sensors that require high temperature for their operation. We propos ...

  10. Development of Microalgal-Based Vaccines for Fish

    SBC: PHYCOTRANSGENICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Phycotransgenics goal is to develop a vaccine delivery system using microalgae to reduce diseaseassociated costs for aquaculture. To accomplish this, we transformed Chlamydomonas, a single-cell algal species, with an antigen gene. Through our Phase 1 Program, we demonstrated that: 1) an antigen expressed in our algae can elicit an immune response in fish, and; 2) using our microalgal delivery syst ...
