  1. A Prototype System for Distributed Space-Weather Models and Applications

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Accurate and timely information about space weather has become essential for managing many technologies on which our lives depend (e.g., radio communications, Global Positioning Systems). A major limitation to accessing this information from NOAA and private vendors is the lack of well-defined, standardized methods for accessing data or running models remotely over the Internet. Northwest Research ...

  3. Development of a Shipboard Ultrasonic Ballast Water Organism Control

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops and demonstrates an innovative and economic technology that uses ultrasonic energy to destroy organisms in a ship ballast system, thereby minimizing impact from alien species introduced from shipping. Phase 1 results successfully showed that organisms were rapidly destroyed by ultrasound at various frequencies and power densities. Although the mechanism of destruction in an u ...

  4. Omni-Directional Cloud Height Indicator

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will develop the specifications and design of a ceilometer capable of scanning in three dimensions to detect clouds within a range of 75,000 feet (about 15 miles). The final design will be based upon the Vaisala CT-75k ceilometer which has a nominal range of 75,000 feet. As a proof-of- concept, the proposed research effort will use the Vaisala CT-25k (which has a nominal rang ...

  5. Low-Cost, Smart Vibration Sensor Utilizing CIFMEMS Technology and Postmolded-Plastic (PMP) Packing

    SBC: OPTICAL E.T.C., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of a very lost cost approach to producing smart amplication-specific vibration sensors will be investigated. The approach consists of: (1) fabricating integrated circuit wafers containing vibration sensor precursors and signal processing electronics at a commercial Application-Specific Integrated-Circuit (ASIC) foundry service in a completely standard CMOS process; (2) processing t ...

  6. Compact Photoconductive-Based Sampling System with Electronic Sampling

    SBC: OptoElectric            Topic: N/A

    Critical issues associated with the design of a rugged, compact "real time" sampling system using photoconductive switches as the signal generator and sample will be investigated. The design concept is based upon an optoelectronic equivalent time sampling principle developed by the Principal Investigator. It involves first the phase locking of the temporal waveform to be measured to the optical pu ...

  7. Micro-Radiometer/Flourometer for Ocean Sensing


    This SBIR project will research and develop a new class of miniature hyperspectral optical instruments for aquatic monitoring. The approach uses a molded spectrograph of exceedingly small size as the key optical component. This so-called micro-spectrograph can be implemented into a variety of miniature instrument configurations, e.g., as a radiometer, reflectometer, flourometer, and spectophotomet ...

  8. New Technology EDS Detectors for X-ray Microanalysis

    SBC: Photon Imaging, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed work is to develop a novel detector for analytical spectrometry having large active area, high-energy resolution and capable of operating at high counting rates. The proposed detector will be specifically designed for x-ray microanalysis to provide orders of magnitude advancement in the performance over conventional energy dispersive systems. During the Phase 1 effort of t ...

  9. An Underwater, Video-Based, Stereoscopic Imaging and Measurement System

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The development of a PC-based stereoscopic imaging and measuring system (SIMS) that will be suitable for underwater applications is proposed. There are three main objectives for the Phase 1 work: 1) to evaluate the requirements (accuracy, range, field of view, speed, potability, etc.) For a field-worthy, video-based SIMS; 2) to modify our existing stereo measurement system to accept video input an ...

  10. Horizontal ADCP for Remote Mapping of Currents

    SBC: RD INSTRUMENTS            Topic: N/A

    The objective is to develop a horizontal ADCP (HADCP) for mapping horizontal flow structure in channels, harbors, and ports. This would be useful in areas where currents pose a threat to safe boat navigation. The Challenge for such a system is to measure flow even though bottom and surface returns could contaminate the profiles. Phase 2 will develop a long range HADCP using a frequency of approxim ...
