  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Demonstrate the Feabibility of Building an AWIPS-Based System Grid with Weather Ontonology Capabilities

    SBC: Fairfield Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The AWIPS (Advanced Weather Information Processing System) program is a cornerstone element supporting NWS' mission to protect life and property and enhance the national economy. The challenge of this project is to help NWS harness large amounts of unused computer resources and underutilized data, improve collaboration and cooperation to solve complex problems not currently addressable, to increas ...

  6. Offshore Spar Based Fish Feeder

    SBC: Net Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As fish farmers attempt to increase capacity, they are being forced to more exposed growing sites. The technology for rearing fish in this high-energy environment is dependent on robust fish pens and the infrastructure to support them. One very important technology that must be developed is an automated feeding system capable of operating in this difficult environment.Using already proven ¿spar t ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. A New Generation of Anti-viral Vaccines for Aquaculture Using Nanotechnology

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: N/A

    This innovative Phase 1 project will test the feasibility of using the science of nanotechnology and emulsion chemistry to produce nanoparticles in a matrix to greatly enhance the immunogenicity of inactivated viruses. This new approach promises to have direct application to the development of potent cost-effective anti-viral vaccines for aquatic animals. These novel formulations should stimulat ...

  10. Improvement of Culture Techniques for the Purple-Hinged Rock Scallop

    SBC: Taylor Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Taylor Resources, Inc. is proposing Phase 1 experiments to assist in commercializing the culture of rock scallops (Crassadoma giganteus). The firm maintains a state-of-the-art hatchery and nursery complex to supply seed to over 3400 ha of intertidal and subtidal grow-out beds. The purple-hinged rock scallop has been identified as the premium valued product with high potential for aquaculture dev ...
