SBIR Phase I

Award List

  1. In Situ Water Isotope Analyzer for Moon Exploration

    Amount: $600,000.00

    Studying the isotopic composition of materials is an established method to obtain detailed insight into formation and evolution processes in our Universe. Water may play a dominant role in unraveling ...

    SBIR Phase II 2010 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. Advanced Fire Detector for Space Applications

    Amount: $600,000.00

    New sensor technology is required to face the challenging tasks associated with future space exploration involving missions to the Moon and Mars. The safety and well-being of the crew critically depen ...

    SBIR Phase II 2010 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  3. High Performance Nitrous Oxide Analyzer for Atmospheric Research

    Amount: $100,000.00

    This project targets the development of a highly sensitive gas sensor to monitor atmospheric nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is an important species in Earth science research. It is one of the four princ ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  4. Isotope Hygrometer for in situ Subsurface Characterization

    Amount: $100,000.00

    Isotope hydrology is a powerful method to trace transport and dispersion of contaminants in the subsurface. Although widely applied, the method depends on sample analysis in specialized laboratories e ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Department of Energy
  5. Trace Carbon Monoxide Analyzer

    Amount: $100,000.00

    Although carbon dioxide remains the most cited greenhouse gas, other gases play important roles in climate change. Carbon monoxide measurements are probably the most important gas phase measurements t ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Department of Energy
  6. Atmospheric Methane Analyzer

    Amount: $100,000.00

    Methane is considered the second most important greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. The relatively short lifetime makes it a candidate for mitigating global warming over the near-term. Highly sensitive ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 Department of Energy
  7. Optical Ethylene Analyzer for Food Crop Quality Assurance

    Amount: $400,000.00

    Improved production yield is a constant objective of increasingly sophisticated agricultural practices. As Earth's population grows, higher yield is a critical mechanism for insuring adequate food sup ...

    SBIR Phase II 2010 Department of Agriculture
  8. Rugged Optical Carbon Monoxide Field Analyzer

    Amount: $75,000.00

    Detection of carbon monoxide (CO) is an essential element of the North American Carbon Program. CO detection is challenging because of the low, 100 parts-per-billion (ppb), concentrations in the atmo ...

    SBIR Phase I 2004 Department of Commerce
  9. In Situ Optical Monitor for Waste Tank Gases

    Amount: $750,000.00

    Department of Energy waste storage tanks require continuous monitoring of species in solid, liquid and gaseous phases. Gas phase species of interest include ammonia, methane, carbon dioxide and hydro ...

    SBIR Phase II 2006 Department of Energy
  10. Optical Carbon Dioxide Field Isotope Ratiometer

    Amount: $100,000.00

    78093S Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are best quantified by determining the carbon dioxide isotope ratios. The precision required represents a challenge to optical measurement techniques un ...
