  1. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Langrangian pH and pCO2 drifter aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in the world’s oceans. ...

  2. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurement in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    The topic (8.2.2R) requires the capability for enabling high sensitive/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. The proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of large backgrounds calcium concentration. The sensor approach will use the benefi ...

  3. A Single Aperture Dual-Wavelength Dual-Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and the world economy. From an average of $10B annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry, which is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now casting and forecasting could prevent the ...

  4. Query- Based Interoperability and CAD/CAE Integration in Assemblies

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and implement a set of CAD queries by which to achieve model interchangeability in assemblies, model interoperability, and model integration for CAD/CAE. A model scenario will be used to illustrate how this can be accomplished. In Phase 1, we will establish the feasibility of the approach, develop high level algorithms and conduct software experiments to verify their efficienc ...

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

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

    This project will design and deliver 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 subject to significant chemical interferences (in t ...

  6. Robust MEMS Viscosity Meter for Condition-based Maintenance

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    In this NIST SBIR program Boston MicroSystems develops MEMS-based fluid viscosity-density sensors which can be installed in refrigerant system compressors to monitor, in real time, refrigerant system health. Such sensors will provide early detection of water contamination, lubricant degradation and other problems which can lead to catastrophic refrigerant system failure if left uncorrected. Such s ...

  7. Improved Manufacturing Processes for Circular Array Detectors

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

    The goal of phase 1 was to create a channel electron multiplier that could be used in an array for configuration in the synchrotron beam application. In order to have little variance in first strike statistics contamination needed to be eliminated from the surface. This was accomplished with phase 1 research. During Phase 2 the primary objective is to manufacture a circular array of multipliers th ...

  8. Chitosan-Based, Foul-Release Coatings

    SBC: E PAINT COMPANY            Topic: 846

    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 itsel ...

  9. Fluorescence Imagery for Rapid Estimates of the Distribution and Abundance of Coral Recruits

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for improved techniques for investigation of coral recruitment and survivorship. Fluorescence has the potential to be an enabling technology to extend the study of recruitment to smaller (more recently settled) specimens in natural habitats. Our objectives are to: create a novel, more versatile underwater light source for stimulating fluorescence; determine the capabilities and l ...

  10. Inexpensive Submersible Long-Term Dissolved Oxygen Recorder

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

    Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project to demonstrate the feasibility of a compact optical monitor for continuous dissolved oxygen monitoring in areas at risk of eutrophication induced hypoxia and anoxia. The proposed monitor will facilitate the development of improved theoretical models by enabling better data collection with regard to spread an ...
