Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 16a
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

The life expectancy of offshore wind turbines is at least 20 years, during which they must operate optimally with respect to power production, minimization of mechanical stresses, plant wake distribution, and more in a range of atmospheric conditions. These conditions are currently observed using meteorological masts, which provide inadequate ob...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17a
Budget: 04/10/17 - 04/09/19

A lightweight, low power, airborne microwave radiometer for clouds and atmospheric observations from an unmanned aerial system is being developed. This uniquely capable sensor will capitalize on the increasing utility of unmanned aerial platforms for scientific missions. It will make observations more economical, timely, and useful for a wide co...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EW
Budget: 03/15/17 - 02/28/19

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is in the improvement of atmospheric state observations from various platforms. This compact, integrated and ?plug and play? receiver design will make the existing observations more available, more economical, and will also enable previously unattainable observations of water vapor distribu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 16
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

The proposed project will develop a low cost marine atmospheric boundary layer profiler. The Marine Profiling Radiometer (MPR) will provide temperature and humidity profiles, indicative of the atmospheric stability, up to heights of 200 m and above. In addition, the radiometer will provide integrated water vapor and cloud liquid measurement. All...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 8.5.2
Budget: 05/29/16 - 11/29/16

Many applications in areas such as geophysics, biology, agriculture, security, and others require long-term observations of parameters at a distant location where power or communication links are not available and are impractical or too expensive to install. Examples for such measurements are various in situ measurements in the middle of the oce...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17a
Budget: 02/05/16 - 08/21/16

The proposed project will develop a lightweight, low volume and low power consuming sensor for accurate measurements of liquid water or ice water content of clouds, water vapor concentration and local thermodynamic state of the atmosphere. It will be capable to operate from a small unmanned aircraft system platform, with instrument weight less t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EW
Budget: 01/01/16 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is in improving and simplifying weather observations from various platforms, such as an unmanned aircraft, small satellites in orbit, a buoy in the middle of the ocean or from the ground, even in a remote location. The targeted customer for the radiometer receiver is anyone who desires a mo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-101
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This SBIR Phase I project proposes the design and prototype development of a compact microwave radiometer to be used as a remote sensor of inflight icing hazards, and will be capable of detecting and evaluating icing conditions in an aircraft"s flight path. Boulder Environmental Sciences and Technology will design a sensor that could be use...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10A-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Phase I project proposes the development of a Marine Profiling Radiometer (MPR). The MPR is a passive microwave remote sensor capable to measure the stability of the marine boundary layer. Significant innovations in radiometer design, packaging, mode of operation, and calibration enable the MPR to operate in the unforgiving marine environme...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-A1
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

SBIR Phase I Project proposes a new passive microwave airborne sensor for in flight icing hazard detection, Microwave Radiometer for Aviation Safety. A feasibility study of a relatively inexpensive, small in size, robust, energy efficient instrument with reliable calibration, easy to use, and with minimal maintenance requirement is proposed.
