  2. Secure Role-Based System for Distributed Network Measurement

    SBC: POLLERE, INC.            Topic: NA

    Network measurement is a critical element in networks but it has largely been an afterthought and inadequately secured. With the emergence of Information-Centric Networking technologies, specifically the popular open source Named-Data Networking (NDN), there is the early stage opportunity to create a useful and flexible network measurement system that can accommodate a range of network probes. Thi ...

  3. Measuring the Concentration of Host-cell Proteins in Biomanufacturing Using Silicon Nanowire Array Sensors

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: NA

    Our innovation is a low cost, sensitive, quantitative biosensor that can detect many biomarkers on the same chip. Our sensor consists of vertically aligned silicon nanowires. The silicon nanowires’ high surface area to volume ratio makes them sensitive to the environment around them and can thus lead to high sensitivity detection. Each of the nanowires can be functionalized to be sensitive to ei ...

  4. Large Field of View Microscope for Rapid, High-Resolution Imaging

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: NA

    In this SBIR effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop and deliver a high-resolution (< 1.2 micron) microscope that can rapidly (< 60 seconds) image a large field of view (> 1 cm2). The instrument will provide a wide array of imaging modalities, including brightfield, darkfield, fluorescence, quantitative phase, and Rheinberg imaging. In Phase II, Nikira Labs will fabricate, test, and deliver a ...

  5. Compact, Lightweight Open-Path Cavity RingdownSpectrometry System for UAS Deployment

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to miniaturize the patented, open-path cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS) analyzer developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The resulting instrument will be used to measure the optical properties of aerosols aboard Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) in highly humidi ...

  6. Clean Energy from Air-Sea Temperature Differences

    SBC: SEATREC, INC.            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We will demonstrate the feasibility and commercial applicability of a novel energy harvesting system that converts thermal energy from air-sea temperature differences into electricity. This capability will extend the endurance and capability of NOAA observing platforms, reduce lithium battery waste, increase human and environmental safety, and support efforts to detect and moni ...

  7. Riptide Hypoxic Zone AUV

    SBC: Riptide Autonomous Solutions, LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Buoyancy driven oceanographic gliders, although reasonably cost effective, have challenges operating in the zones due to high gradients in water density. Under this topic, Riptide will provide a cost-effective autonomous undersea vehicle (AUV) design leveraged from Riptide's family of man-portable AUVs that can more effectively map the hypoxic areas. The stated goals of this to ...

  8. SeaTag-SP: A Spawning Detecting and Reporting Pop-UpSatellite Tag

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The application of acoustic sensing in small, affordable, satellite connected ocean devices has broad potential. This proposal focuses at first on the specific topic requirement, designing a popup satellite tag (PSAT) incorporating an acoustic receiver to identify and report the timing and location of fish spawning based on signal presence/absence detection for a tiny pinger wh ...

  9. Feasibility of a Recoverable, Balloon-Based, GNSS-RO Platform

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The SBIR Phase I proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in assessing the feasibility of performing GNSS radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a balloon platform. In Phase I, NCL will perform appropriate trade studies and sensitivity studies to identify key design requirements for the balloon-based GNSS-RO payload and the balloon platform. A lowcost, proof-of-conce ...
