This proposal addresses the detection, identification and measurement of the concentration of molecular species in remote sensing data, from ground-based, aircraft-based or space-based sensors. The serial combination of standard analysis tools increases the sensitivity of the detection and allows detection of molecular emission at low concentration. This technique will have wide application in any ordered datasets wherein the signature of the desired quantity is known. In Phase I, we will 1) prove the feasibility of the Species Identification Software using a) calculations against a series of concentrations of specific molecular species in ambient air, and b) an agreed upon set of test spectroscopic data provided by the government, and 2) do a market survey of the potential military and commercial users of this technique with the intent of forming partnerships in the later phases of the SBIR effort. In Phase II, we will write a Commercialization Plan, develop software specifications, develop and test, against a wider variety of test cases, multiple generations of prototype software, and install the latest versions on Air Force computer systems. In Phase III, we will place the software with customers that we have developed over the course of the Phase II effort.
