  1. Sensor for Rapid Determination of Oxygen Demand in Natural water

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 823

    Real-time monitoring of organic compounds in water and wastewater is important for management of pollution levels. Current verification measurements relating to the nutrient content of the water cannot be done at frequent intervals or on-site, for example biological oxygen demand (BOD5) yields slow results (five days); another standard method, chemical oxygen demand (COD), uses hazardous chemicals ...

  2. Carbon Nanotube Array-based Nanosensor for Autonomous and Direct Measurement of Carbonate

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825

    Polestar Technologies Inc. proposes a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project to develop a deployable sensor for direct measurements of carbonate in saline waters. The designed sensor combines selectivity of carbonate ionophore with the unique structure of a carbon nanotube array. Detection will be based on rapid, inexpensive, low power and precise electrochemical methods. The proposed ...

  3. Ultra-high Precision Measurements of Atmospheric Methane Stable Isotope Ratios

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831

    In order to understand how and why methane (CH4) concentrations change over time, it is necessary to understand their sources and sinks. Stable isotope measurements of 13CH4:12CH4 and CH3D:12CH4 ratios constrain these sinks and sources. This is particularly crucial for methane of microbial origin since other tracers such as ethane and propane are not co-emitted. Global measurements of these ratios ...

  4. Affordable Lightweight wireless ROV for sustained observation of benthic ecosystems

    SBC: C-2 INNOVATIONS INC.            Topic: 821

    The Mobile Observation Platform ((MOP) will leverage the Bottom Crawler (BC) Sea Otter system that C-2ih as developed and tested in very similar environments and operational conditions. Capable of 300-ft depths and 10 mile autonomous transits across mixed environments including soft ground and heavy surf, the Sea Otter will be able to act as realistic surrogate for the MOP and allow C-2i to focus ...

  5. Category-Theoretic Tool for Manufacturing-related Information Integration

    SBC: CATEGORICAL INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 9010173R

    Categorical theory has recently been successfully applied to translate information from one computer system to another. Researchers at MIT have developed a prototype software tool based on category theory for solving information-integration programs. The tool has successfully solved small-scale information-integration problems including a problem identified by NIST about enriching the manufacturin ...

  6. Self-Contained Sub Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 812N

    The goal of this project is to develop, prototype, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, survey, and structural health monitoring application. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages publically available GNSS reference data from exis ...

  7. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  8. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  9. Rapid and Low-Cost Field Toxin Analysis to Monirot Harmful Algal Blooms

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 812N

    During the harmful algal blooms (HAB), marine algal toxins reach concentrations high enough to cause various neurological and gastrointestinal disorders through inhalation of the toxin or consumption of contaminated shellfish. Brevetoxins, produced by dinoflagellate Karenia brevis, are known to disrupt neurological processes to cause an illness called neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The timely rec ...

  10. Supporting Local Decision Making through a Comprehensive Community Driven Data Tool

    SBC: Industrial Economics, Incorporated            Topic: 851X

    A central part of NOAA’s mission is to develop and distribute scientific data, including large-scale climate, weather, marine, and coastal information for regional and national analysis. NOAA has also developed local data gathering tools on an as-needed basis. While these approaches demonstrate the power of local data collection, no existing tool meets the broad needs of environmental community ...
