  1. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    It is desirable to make focal plane arrays (or imaging arrays) with reduced pitch; doing so enables smaller, cheaper and lighter camera systems that provide the same image resolution. Currently, the lower limit on pitch is set by electron/hole diffusion and light diffraction that results in crosstalk between neighboring pixels. Since electron hole pairs generated outside the depletion layer can ...

  2. A Web-based, Interactive, Long-range Hydrologic Forecast Tool for the Western U.S.

    SBC: 3Tier Environmental Forecast Group, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Water resource managers must translate uncertain information about the future into operational decisions that can have large public safety, economic and ecological impacts. Seasonal forecasts of climate and hydrology can be an important tool in assisting managers in their decision making process. However, studies evaluating the utility of seasonal forecasts have repeatedly identified the lack of ...

  3. The Oceanic CO2 Monitor

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 822

    During Phase I, AOS produced a prototype, equilibrator-based p(CO2) monitor and performed extensive research in the laboratory and in the field to verify its operation. It is compact, has minimal environmental loading and is suitable for autonomous deployments from research vessels and oceanic platforms of opportunity. We deployed it three times on day cruises from Monterey Bay, CA; agreement wa ...

  4. All Weather Temperature and Water Vapor Profiling Radiometer for Marine Environments

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 835

    The detailed design and development of an operational radiometer for regular use in sounding temperature and humidity in the marine boundary layer on NDBC buoys is proposed. The design follows that a well demonstrated unit pioneered by the PI and Co-Is that has been used successfully in the field on ships, aircraft, and ground based sites. It relies on full (360 degree) scanning of the sky above ...

  5. Development of a Compact Aerosol Instrumentation Suite for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: BRECHTEL MANUFACTURING, INC.            Topic: 8213

    To assess the climate impacts of atmospheric aerosols, global datasets of aerosol properties including the number size distribution, chemical composition, and absorption coefficient are needed yet generally unavailable. Knowledge of the vertical distributions of these key properties is also required to properly model column extinction. We propose to develop a new aerosol measurement system, the ...

  6. Improving Radio Occulation Technologies Through Next-Generation GPS Receiver Design

    SBC: Broad Reach Engineering            Topic: 828

    The weather research community is utilizing a proven RO technique for climate modeling and numerical weather prediction; however, the current space hardware does not provide the optimum science data. This proposal will focus on proposed enhancements to the Integrated GPS Occulation Receiver (IGORTM) L1/L2 GPS flight receivers. Improvement in real time Navigation Solution from

  7. NOAA Premium TV Program

    SBC: Ceilings Unlimited            Topic: 824

    Ceilings Unlimited proposes to develop a popular entertainment television show (¿The Program¿) for climate education and outreach. The Program will present tales of the human impact of climate and climate science, highlighting the role NOAA¿s climate services play in our nation¿s engagement on issues of climate and climate change. In Phase II, Ceilings Unlimited will distill the results of t ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Inexpensive Airborne Expandable Ice Buoys (AXIB) Suitable for Marginal Ice Zone Deployment

    SBC: LBI, INC.            Topic: 838

    The proposed solution provides a low-cost practical air-droppable package for existing polar ice meteorological sensor systems. The buoy package will be configured for deployment from a fixed wing aircraft. Descent is stabilized and slowed by a parachute deployed after launch, and designed for a descent rate of 20 ft/s or less. When deployed on the ice, the buoy will erect to the vertical for o ...

  10. In-Field Device for the Autonomous Detection of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxigenic Species and Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 833

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are a serious threat to coastal resources, causing impacts ranging from the contamination of seafood products with potent toxins to mortalities of wild and farmed fish and other marine animals. HABs cost the U.S. economy over $50 million annually due to the closure of fisheries and beaches and the treatment of human illness from toxin exposures. NOAA is interested in ...
