44 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I proposal seeks to develop a compact, autonomous NO2 sensor for air monitoring applications based on laser induced fluorescence (LIF). A key component in the proposed system is new laser technology developed at NovaWave. The Phase I research will directly demonstrate the utility of this new light ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-S2
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

The Small Business Innovative Research Phase II proposal seeks to develop a dual channel, compact mid-infrared laser spectrometer for planetary atmosphere exploration. The device will be capable of measuring numerous trace gases at 3.3 and 4.6 um without the need for cryogens. By using novel, fiber-coupled, solid state lasers, performance will ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

The Small Business Innovative Research Phase I proposal seeks to develop a compact mid-infrared laser spectrometer to benefit Earth science research activities. To capitalize on emerging aerial platforms, a miniaturized and ruggedized mid-infrared laser spectrometer using novel, fiber-coupled, solid state lasers will be designed to improve perfo...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

The Small Business Innovative Research Phase I proposal seeks to develop a compact, room-temperature widely tunable middle infrared laser source that will be ideal for detecting methane, it's isotopes and related species using ultrasensitive absorption spectroscopies. The broad tuning ability of the laser will also enable the detection of multip...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Topic: DTRA082-007
Budget: 02/03/09 - 09/02/09

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I proposal seeks to develop a low-cost, compact, and rugged gamma-ray spectrometer that could be deployed in large numbers to provide enhanced security from radiological threats. The proposed approach is based on readily available components that are used in conjunction with proprietary designs and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Carbon isotope ratio measurements are presently used to distinguish among the various sources of carbon in the atmosphere, in particular, between natural sources and those resulting from human activity. Potentially, carbon isotopes could be used in a similar fashion to monitor leaks from carbon dioxide sequestration sites. The current standard...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Nitrous oxide measurements are currently used to study atmospheric transport mechanisms as a route towards a greater understanding of global warming and climate change. However, current instruments suffer from limitations with respect to speed and precision. This project will develop an instrument that will enable nitrous oxide concentrations ...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

The Small Business Innovative Research Phase II proposal seeks to develop a compact UV laser ýýbased sensor for Earth science and planetary atmosphere exploration. The device will be capable of measuring formaldehyde in real-time at ultra-trace levels. The sensor is based on a revolutionary, single frequency tunable UV fiber laser that was su...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I proposal seeks to develop an ultrasensitive, laser-based sulfur dioxide gas sensor system for airborne and ground-based atmospheric monitoring. The proposed instrument will be capable of accurately determining sub-parts-per-billion SO2 concentrations in seconds. This compact, instrument will be ca...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

The ability to detect trace radionuclide material in subsurface soil and water is critical to monitoring leaks from harmful radiological stores. The sub-surface transport of radionuclides can lead to unwanted contamination of groundwater and food supplies, thus posing a threat the nation¿s population. In order to contain the spread of radioac...
