  1. Inq-Blotter: Revolutionizing How Teachers Identify and Support Students Needing Help During Inquiry

    SBC: Apprendis LLC            Topic: EDIES15R0005

    n prior work, the researchers built a series of virtual physics labs to assess middle school student’s science inquiry practice and understanding. In this project, the team is developing and testing a prototype of Inq-Blotter, a web-based platform intended to provide teachers immediate feedback on student progress while using the labs. The prototype dashboard will alert teachers when students ar ...

  2. Category-Theoretic Tool for Manufacturing-related Information Integration

    SBC: CATEGORICAL INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 9010173R

    Categorical theory has recently been successfully applied to translate information from one computer system to another. Researchers at MIT have developed a prototype software tool based on category theory for solving information-integration programs. The tool has successfully solved small-scale information-integration problems including a problem identified by NIST about enriching the manufacturin ...

  3. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  4. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  5. Rapid and Low-Cost Field Toxin Analysis to Monirot Harmful Algal Blooms

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 812N

    During the harmful algal blooms (HAB), marine algal toxins reach concentrations high enough to cause various neurological and gastrointestinal disorders through inhalation of the toxin or consumption of contaminated shellfish. Brevetoxins, produced by dinoflagellate Karenia brevis, are known to disrupt neurological processes to cause an illness called neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The timely rec ...

  6. Supporting Local Decision Making through a Comprehensive Community Driven Data Tool

    SBC: Industrial Economics, Incorporated            Topic: 851X

    A central part of NOAA’s mission is to develop and distribute scientific data, including large-scale climate, weather, marine, and coastal information for regional and national analysis. NOAA has also developed local data gathering tools on an as-needed basis. While these approaches demonstrate the power of local data collection, no existing tool meets the broad needs of environmental community ...

  7. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  8. High Speed and High Sensitivity Quadrant Photodetector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 912085R

    To further advance the characterization and utility of microcantilevers, next generation optical detectors with higher frequency response, improved displacement resolution and lower noise for weak signal detection are needed. Consequently, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a turnkey optical detector module for use in characterizing the displacement and resonant frequencies of m ...

  9. A Single Aperature Dual-Wavelength Dual Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

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

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and nation’s economy. From an average of $10B (2005 dollars) annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry that is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets being lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now-casting and forecasti ...
