  1. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  2. Continuous Monitoring of Natural Gas Infrastructure for Increased Community Resilience using Voltammetric Sensors

    SBC: FULLMOON SENSORS, INC.            Topic: None

    Fullmoon has the first chip-level sensors capable of identifying and quantifying molecules in the air. At the core of our technology are printed voltammetric sensors, which are operated using cyclic voltammetry, an electrochemical technique that probes for the redox potential, a unique signature of molecules. We have demonstrated this sensing principle for the detection of carbon monoxide and meth ...

  3. Sea Tag-SP: A family of acoustic enabled satellite tags for spawning detection and more

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Phase-1 demonstrated the powerful and unusual remote sensing opportunities available by adding acoustic signal detection to pop-up satellite tags (PSAT). The time and location of spawning define the starting point in the life history of fish. Yet this event, which is of critical importance to fishery researchers and managers seeking to gain an understanding of distinct reproductive populations and ...

  4. Development of a Functional Balloon-borne GNSS-RO System Prototype

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    The SBIR Phase II proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in designing, and developing, and testing a system prototype to perform Global Navigation Satellite System radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a high-altitude balloon platform. NCL will continue building from the positive results achieved in Phase I that successfully demonstrated the feasibility of performing balloon-borne GN ...

  5. Fog Viewer

    SBC: Areté Associates            Topic: 826

    The presence of fog reduces visibility, contributing to unsafe conditions for many maritime tasks. The current system uses active backscatter and has high power requirements, high maintenance and replacement costs. Areté Associates’ innovative FogViewer system comprises a passive multi-spectral, multi-polarization sensor suite that leverages available degrees of freedom to best characterize the ...

  6. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 825

    Subsurface mooring beacons are used to provide notifications and assist in locating moored assets that have surfaced and are free drifting. Their nominal design is driven by the requirements for offshore use where they need to survive extreme depths and remote deployment, most often using satellite constellations for communication and geo-location. Existing beacons serve their purpose well, but th ...

  8. Extended Release of Pyridostigmine Bromide for Effectively Combating Nerve Agent Exposure

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD181004

    Chemical warfare agents such as the lethal nerve agent soman are a major source of risk to military personnel. Currently, pyridostigminebromide (PB) is the only FDA-approved pretreatment to counteract the effects of soman. The rationale behind PB administration is that it actsas a temporary inhibitor of AChE. This precludes nerve agents from irreversible inactivation of AChE, thereby mitigating th ...

  9. Tuning Germanium Crystal Reflectivity and Mosaic

    SBC: AdSem, Inc.            Topic: 9010861R

    This project is devoted to development of a manufacturing technique of slow neutron Germanium mosaic monochromators with reflectivity exceeding reflectivity of pyrolytic graphite crystals. The manufacturing technique utilizes optimized high temperature plastic deformation of large single Germanium crystals to produce mosaic monochromators. Preliminary test on 70 mm diameter Ge samples with 111 ori ...
