60 Awards Won

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Topic: D1
Budget: 02/01/16 - 12/31/16

The overall goal of this Project is to develop an innovative inexpensive optical technology and rugged and portable instrumentation for highly sensitive, selective, continuous measurement of atmospheric ammonia for air pollution monitoring. Environmental studies have proven that ammonia presents a significant environmental hazard; therefore, acc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.07
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Environmental species measurement on airborne atmospheric research craft is a demanding application for optical sensing techniques. Yet optical techniques offer many advantages including high-precision, fast response, and high species selectivity. Balloonsonde, kite, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or glider deployment demands that sensors meet s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17E-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Stratus and stratocumulus clouds with low drop concentration and large drop diameter are scientifically very important, because this is the regime in which drizzle drops are formed. The formation of drizzle can lead to a rapid modification of the cloud droplet size distribution, which in turn has a strong influence on the cloud & apos;s radiati...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17 D-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Aerosol research remains a priority area and requires strong efforts to resolve the very complex processes that occur in the atmosphere. To understand aerosol formation and their implications on climate the study of precursors provides very valuable information. Ammonia is one of the most important precursor molecules and plays a major role in...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-120
Budget: 11/02/12 - 04/30/13

Aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) selectively filters compressed air from the aircraft's engine to remove nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. During shipboard operations, Navy aircraft are particularly vulnerable to excessive levels of toxic byproducts from ingest...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

Understanding global warming requires continuous field measurements of carbon dioxide concentrations. High-precision measurements of a part-in-3000, or better, are required. However, these high-performance instruments must meet stringent cost objectives. A simple, rugged, infrared spectrometer can provide the required measurement precision at t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 30 B-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

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 to be performed in the field to track pollution, to fingerprint sources and to separate dynamics from chemistry in plumes. Highly sensitive measurem...

Topic: 10-1-S1.08
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Volcanic research is a significant part of the "Earth Surface & Interior" focus area of the NASA Earth Science program. After a volcanic eruption, the smallest ash particles can remain in the atmosphere for days to months affecting public health in the surrounding regions and the radiation balance on Earth. Airborne volcanic ash particulate matt...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.4-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Sufficient and safe water resources are the foundation of a society. With growing Earth population the protection of the limited resources becomes more challenging. Scientific assessment of groundwater vulnerability to depletion and pollution is required for optimized water-use and for intensification of crop production systems with the aim to a...
