Phase 1 SBIR

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

Scientists are turning their focus to the Arctic, site of one of the strongest climate change signals. A new generation of technologies is required to function within that harsh environment, chart evolution of its trace gases and provide new kinds of information for models of the atmosphere. Our response tracks how global atmospheric monitoring ...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

New atmospheric sampling technology is needed to monitor the impact of energy production by the combustion of fossil fuels. The new technologies should enable the much higher monitoring densities that are appropriate for building models of climate change, for judging attempts of urban remediation and for validation of global coverage by the CO2 ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-S1.08
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

AOS has shown that it is feasible to use the combined NASA/SBIR resources from Phases I and II to:(i) Build a turn-key analyzer system that has the dual-band/differential architecture and is small, light and sensitive enough to be deployed in the smallest zone of the Global Hawk (GH);

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 29 C-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

New CO2 analysis technology is proposed to enable development of environmental infrastructure consisting of dense networks of towers that can monitor urban air pollution, validate observations from CO2 satellites and complement the sparsely populated tower network of NOAA/GMD. The analysis technology will be mounted at height on tower and interc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 30 B-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Eighty-five percent of America

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-S1
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

We are proposing to develop high altitude CO2 analyzer technology that can be deployed on the research aircraft of NASA's Airborne Science Program (ASP). The ultimate scientific goal is the calibration/validation of CO2 observations made from spacecraft. Two forms of the analyzer are to be developed, pod for unmanned aircraft and rack for more g...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Almost all of America¿s energy needs are supplied by the combustion of fossil fuels, and a great amount of anthropogenic CO2 is a byproduct of this process. The DOE has expressed a need for the development of CO2 instrumentation that can be deployed on small balloons and other robotic platforms and can achieve 1 ppm accuracy for a temporal reso...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

We are proposing to build a new technology, the photo-pneumatic analyzer. It is small, solid-state, inexpensive, and appropriate for observations of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) from six of the seven robotic platforms being targeted by NASA in its solicitation. An inexpensive MEMS transducer is integrated into a miniature pair of gas cells t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Almost all of America¿s energy needs are supplied by the combustion of fossil fuels. Unfortunately, a byproduct of this combustion is CO2, the primary greenhouse gas. In order to track this greenhouse gas as it is processed by the carbon cycle, this project will complete the development of the Eddy Covariance Flux Monitor, an unmanned aircraft t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Almost all of America¿s energy needs are supplied by the combustion of fossil fuels, and a great amount of anthropogenic CO2 is a byproduct of this process. Instrumentation is needed to (1) better track the CO2 as it is processed by the global carbon cycle and (2) improve the prediction of the consequences of this form of energy production. The ...
