The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Low-Noise, High-Efficiency Geiger Photodiode for Quantum Cryptography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mechanics of single photons can be used to entangle information carry quantum states, allowing for quantum computation or random number generation. Quantum communication utilizes the quantum nature of single-photons to retain information, particularly in the form of quantum key distribution protocols. High-efficiency, low-noise single photon detection at high efficiency is critical for the app ...

  2. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  3. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  4. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: 84

    NOAA has identified a problem with the display and usability of satellite imagery on NWS websites. This proposal provides analysis of the feasibility and usability of a proposed system to address this concern. Our goal in the project is to create a heuristically sound conceptual design and tool set for display and interaction with satellite imagery on the NWS site. The project will also explore ...

  5. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 91

    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  6. Climate Impact Visualization Tools using 3D City for Community-Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 93

    To build a climate-smart and resilient nation, we need to foster a climate-literate public that understands its vulnerabilities to a changing climate and makes informed decisions. A core component of this challenge is to develop simple, intuitive and high-impact visualizations of climate data--data that is and will be made available through the President’s Climate Data Initiative--for education ...

  7. NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) "Smart Receiver"

    SBC: Hy-Tek, Ltd.            Topic: 837

    There is a critical need for a high performance receiver that knows where it is, knows where the NWR transmitting stations are, tunes itself to the local NWR station (especially in a mobile environment), provides weather and warnings in both audio and text, requires little-to-no setup and can communicate with other devices such as external alarms and network systems that can better warn its owner ...

  8. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheic Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    Accurate, high resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and ocean surface wind fields within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase II effort will build on the Phase I project successes to realize an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar (AWRAP) capable of providing these winds with up to 15-meter vertical re ...

  9. Buoy Atmospheric Precipitation Sampler

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 8212

    Reliable automated collection and measurement of precipitation from moored buoys has been an elusive goal. Operation of open aperture collectors on ocean platforms is problematic, requiring constant human attention and intervention to prevent sea spray from contaminating the collected samples, and for dealing with freezing conditions in colder climates. Approaches are described that have the pot ...

  10. High-Resolution, Two-Dimensional Neutron Imaging Detector

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NOVA Scientific proposes a high-resolution neutron imaging detector having a specialized neutron-sensitive electron amplified detection stage integrated with a cross-strip electronic readout capable of centroid averaging. Phase 1 efforts demonstrated spatial resolutions of 15 µm with high detection efficiency and moderate counting rates. The Phase 2 proposed program will carry out further detec ...
