  1. Low-Cost Automated Aerosol Lidar for Air Quality Assessment and Prediction

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Oceanit showed the feasibility of a low-cost, compact, lightweight, eye-safe LIDAR suitable for aerosol gradient detection in a Phase 1 effort. The system is based on an eye-safe laser being developed at Oceanit as part of a 3D scanning ceilometer. The laser can operate at greater power than other systems using non-eye-safe wavelengths, thus it eliminates many of the problems associated with low ...

  2. Advances in Ammonia Detection Systems

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 811

    This Phase II SBIR Research project will continue the development and testing of an innovative instrument for measuring fluxes of atmospheric ammonia to be delivered at the end of Phase II. The instrument will combine advances in diode laser technology with sophisticated laser modulation methods to quantify ammonia in a low pressure flow cell. The instrument¿s small size and light weight will ...

  3. Selective Speaker Interface to Support Smart Space Accessible Computing

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Smart Flow system developed by NIST provides a platform to develop standards that promote the interoperability of devices produced by different manufacturers. The NIST system can acquire and process multiple sensor data such as voice and image in real-time. Many applications such as speaker verification, head trackers, etc. can be implemented under the framework. In Phase 1, we have demonstrat ...

  4. Development of a PC-Based Ship Maneuvering Simulator for Improving Navigation Traffic Within Ports and Harbors

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 8410

    The potential for accidents in harbors increases with traffic density. Collisions with other ships or natural obstacles are caused by incorrect controls manipulation by the master in response to some unexpected situation, especially when in a new environment. Continual training for various critical situations on simulators that include realistic topography and the presence of other maneuvering ve ...

  5. Water Properties Sensor

    SBC: Kaitech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project is to provide an affordable, easy-to-use, hyperspectral water properties measuring instrument that is designed for universal marine use. It is an instrument that combines, in a single package, capabilities to accurately measure the apparent, inherent, fluorescent and the CTD properties of water. The sensor captures a complete record of all of the water¿s properties in a single cast ...

  6. Miniature Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometer for Measuring Tropospheric Ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes to develop an automated, fast, and compact instrument to measure tropospheric ammonia from light aircraft. Ammonia plays important roles in aerosol particle chemistry, and particle characteristics are critical in understanding climate change and air quality. Existing ammonia instruments are either too large or measure too slowly for use on light aircraft. The unique ...

  7. Systematic Study of the Growth and Processing of ZnTe and GaP Crytals for THz Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    Terahertz radiation is an ideal candidate for non-invasive interrogation of concealed objects and substances. As such, there is an increased need for reliable high-quality nonlinear materials for the generation and detection of THz radiation. Zinc telluride (ZnTe) and gallium phosphide (GaP) are the materials of choice for this purpose. However, the performance of these materials varies widely fro ...

  8. CAD Model and CR and MRI Scan Data to MCNP Input Format Conversion Software

    SBC: White Rock Science            Topic: N/A

    We will develop two programs to process data describing a model geometry and convert it to input acceptable to the Monte Carlo transport codes MCNP and MCNPX. One program will read CAD files in the ACIS solid body SAT format. Solid bodies, surfaces, and cells described in the SAT file will be converted to equivalent MCNP objects where available. Where there is no MCNP equivalent, such as for splin ...

  9. Monitor for Risk of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Sekos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The focus of this SBIR submission is to develop a system to monitor fire-induced structural vibrations that provide real time data correlating with structural integrity. The system is designed to bridge an "information void" that would provide firefighters with information that can warn of impending collapse. The system, based on accelerometer technology, will monitor structural integrity through ...

  10. Construction and Testing of a Spar Feeding System for an Offshore Aquaculture Farm

    SBC: Cates International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase 1 project proposes to design, construct, and test and evaluate a spar feeding system suitable for use on an operating offshore fish farm. To minimize the labor costs for operations in a remote location, remote feeding systems are needed so that feeding of the fish can take place even if the farmer is unable to get to the site. Cates International, inc. has developed a feeding sys ...
