The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. High-Sensitivity, Miniaturized CO Sensor for Airborne Use on Small UAVs

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 835R

    The team of Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI), TruWeather Solutions, LLC., and Latitude Engineering, LLC. propose to develop a novel, high sensitivity, fast response, solid state, electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor system for use in small UAVs which is capable of PPB level atmospheric measurements. The sensor is based on a thick film multi-element potentiometric micro sensor approach which has bee ...

  2. Capillary Absorption Spectrometer for In-Situ, Underwater Gas Analysiss

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 826R

    We will produce a prototype Capillary Absorption Spectrometer (CAS) capable of measuring dissolved methane in water. The concept utilizes mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy within a hollow fiber optic capillary that both confines a gas sample and acts as an optical waveguide. A tunable laser beam propagates through the hollow fiber to a detector with near unity overlap between the beam and ...

  3. Engineering Structures for Offshore Macroalgae Farmingar System)

    SBC: C.A. Goudey & Associates            Topic: 812F

    This project continues our development of innovative systems for farming macroalgae on the high seas. We will identify suitable sites in Nantucket Sound to demonstrate our system and determine the associated environmental parameters including depths, currents, and waves. By combining that information with load and acceleration data from our Phase I wave-basin tests, we will refine the structural d ...

  4. Tofu-tolerant mariculture: Genomics-Assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Reliance on fishmeal and fish oil is a significant constraint to aquaculture expansion in America, and globally. As U.S. marine fish farming expands, genetic improvements could increase economic performance and decrease ecological footprint. This is critically important to sustainability, scalability and profitability of the industry, and is key to attracting capital investment. Commercial opportu ...

  5. Fish Trap Extension Kit for Lionfish Control

    SBC: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 822N

    R3 Digital Sciences (R3-DS) will develop and commercialize the Fish Trap Extension Kit (FTEK), and electromechanical device that will extend the capabilities of existing fish traps, and convert them from indiscriminate traps into “smart traps” capable of targeting specific fish types. To eliminate lionfish bycatch, the FTEK will enable existing commercial spiny lobster traps to autonomously de ...

  6. BE-ROVER Benthic Environment-ROV Extensible Robotrmingar System)

    SBC: Robo Nautica, LLC            Topic: 821N

    There is currently no low-cost, high performance minimally invasive, bottom-crawling ROV system for monitoring coastal and littoral benthic environments which is also deployable by a single marine researcher. Such a system augmenting divers’ observations would greatly expand the quantity and quality of data critical to managing coastal environments and preserving the economic benefits derived by ...

  7. Small UAS Platform for NWS Missions

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841W

    NOAA and in particular, the National Weather Service (NWS), have an unmet need of a cost feasible small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) which can support multiple sensing missions which will either directly save lives or indirectly save lives through improved weather forecasts, warnings and public alerts. NOAA has enumerated two dozen valuable applications of small UAS for itself and partners. Toyon ...

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

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825R

    This program is aimed at the development of a deployable sensor for direct measurement of carbonate ions in saline waters with a sensitivity of 5 μM. The sensor combines the selectivity of carbonate ionophore with the unique structure of a carbon nanotube array to achieve a large dynamic range, high specificity and sensitivity. Phase I was focused on demonstrating the proof-of-principle concept f ...

  9. High Stability Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide and Methane Analyzer

    SBC: LI-COR, Inc.            Topic: 832D

    LI-COR proposes to continue development of a next-generation CO2/CH4/H2O analyzer that will offer an unprecedented combination of high precision and stability, making it the first highperformance gas analyzer suitable for long-term unattended operation. The instrument will be smaller, lighter, and far less expensive than competing technologies. LI-COR’s approach exploits a proprietary, revolutio ...

  10. L-Band Radio Frequency Interference Filtering

    SBC: ADAPTIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 844

    In Phase 1, Adaptive Dynamics Inc. (ADI) propose to do a PHY layer MATLAB simulation and optimization of the 'IMPS' Wideband MAGIC® Interference Mitigation (IM) filter for NOAA. This will demonstrate the feasibility and performance of the IMPS Wideband MAGIC® IM filter algorithm in effectively identifying and separating out unwanted interference from the desired signal of interest (SOI), without ...
