Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-12-088
Budget: 07/01/14 - 06/30/15

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The high prevalence of obesity in the US is a major public health concern, as overweight and obese individuals are at increased risk for many chronic diseases. Obesity stems from an imbalance between total caloric consumption and total energy expenditure (TEE), therefore accurate measurements of TEE play a pi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-2-S1.09
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to employ Off-Axis ICOS to develop triple-isotope water analyzers for lunar and other extraplanetary exploration. This instrument will provide highly accurate quantification of dD, d18O, and d17O to better than & #177 0.3 0/00, & #177 0.1 0/00, and & #177 0.15 0/00 respectively with minimal calibration or consu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 08C-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

DOE is responsible for the remediation of 1.7 trillion gallons of contaminated ground water and 40 million cubic meters of contaminated soil generated at over 7000 sites from past weapons activities. This remediation includes bioremediation, where substances are injected into the subsurface to enhance microbial decomposition. Several methods ha...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.4-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to utilize its patented Off-Axis ICOS technology to develop an analyzer for the accurate determination of 15N/14N, 18O/16O, and 17O/16O isotope ratios in nitrates (d15N, d18O, and d17O). The system will employ the bacterial denitrification method to conve...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-11-096
Budget: 09/21/12 - 02/28/13

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from contaminated groundwater plumes represent a significant health risk at industrial sites throughout the nation and a specific need exists for VOC monitoring at Superfund sites. Accurate, real-time monitoring of toxic VOCs on site is critical to evaluating th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 04 B-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Recent work has shown that there are substantial methane and carbon dioxide emissions from microseepages of biogenic, thermogenic, and abiotic sources through the subsurface that are not included in the carbon balance. Research on microseeps with such low fluxes (10 100 mg m-2 d-1) requires highly accurate instrumentation that can measure am...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 29 B-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

A detailed understanding of carbon cycle is limited by the availability of rapid, accurate, and easy-to-use isotope analyzers. Researchers use stable isotope data to study: 1) recycling of CO2 within forests; 2) water use efficiency; 3) partitioning carbon exchange into its components; and 4) identify and quantify the distribution and contribut...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: 08 C-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

DOE is responsible for the remediation of 1.7 trillion gallons of contaminated ground water and 40 million cubic meters of contaminated soil generated at over 7000 discrete sites from past weapons production activities. This remediation involves a variety of methodologies including bioremediation, in which substances are injected into the subsu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-S1.08
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to develop highly-accurate, lightweight, low-power gas analyzers for measurements of carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O) aboard NASAs Sensor Integrated Environmental Remote Research Aircraft (SIERRA) unmanned aerial system (UAS). These analyzers, which will exploit both conventional mid and near-infrared ...
