  1. Automated Sonde Launching System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Balloon-borne radiosondes are used extensively to collect meteorological data in atmospheric research programs funded by NOAA, WMO, DOD, DOE and others. The launch of radiosondes requires skilled personnel at each launch site to perform tasks such as balloon filling, sonde pre-conditioning and attachment, and physical release of the equipment. At present no low-cost, simple, lightweight, and rob ...

  2. High Precision Monitoring Instrumentation for Background Methane

    SBC: Advanced Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Improved sensors for Methane are needed to implement national and international programs that will better mankind¿s understanding of global warming and associated climate change. The proposing company has developed a baseline sensor; its detection limit is 23 ppb, or 1% of Methane¿s background (1800 ppb). With the proposed improvements, this sensor will exceed the levels of performance posed b ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Head-Up Display for Mariners

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed NOAA SBIR Project will demonstrate the feasibility of a low-cost Head-Up Display (HUD) for mariners, that will display 2 and 3-dimensional navigation and nautical chart data. The capabilities of the Phase 1 HUD system will be based on operational requirements determined during the NOAA SBIR research phase. The proposed HUD requirements of other classes of ships and marine craft wil ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
