25 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Tech Research Corp.

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19a
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

There is an increasing need to understand the impacts particles emitted by both natural and human activities have on cloud properties, precipitation and climate. DOE has identified a need to improve the measurement capability of observational platforms, particularly in the Arctic region. One barrier to progress in understanding the interactions ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 03 B-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Mixed phase clouds, i.e. those that contain water droplets and ice crystals, make up a large fraction of the clouds that are found over the Arctic region. The radiative impact of these clouds on climate modulation is highly sensitive to the relative mix of water and ice, the size distribution of these hydrometeors and the shape and optical prope...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32 C-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Ice crystals can form spontaneously from the freezing of water droplets at temperatures colder than -38C - homogeneous nucleation - or from multiple processes termed heterogeneous nucleation that occur on refractory/insoluble substances at warmer temperatures. Heterogeneous nucleation occurs at temperatures warmer than the homogeneous threshold ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

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

The Continuous-Flow Streamwise Thermal-Gradient CCN Counter (CFSTGC) ommercialized by Droplet Measurement Technologies has proven to be reliable, robust, and relatively simple to operate for ground-based and airborne measurements. Supersaturation changes are made by varying the temperature gradient between the top and bottom of the column. Th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-177
Budget: 02/10/10 - 12/13/10

A measurement system for measuring the icing characteristics of mixed phased clouds from helicopters is being proposed. The Advanced Sensors for Helicopter Icing Research (ASHIR) is a hybrid system that integrates optical and thermal sensors with sophisticated signal processing algorithms in a configuration suitable for mounting on the aircraft ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32 C-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Ice crystals can form spontaneously from the freezing of water droplets at temperatures colder than -38

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-190
Budget: 09/29/09 - 09/29/11

The Controlled Towed Vehicle (CTV) has the capability to provide low level, 10 m, detailed information on ocean-atmosphere interactions for several hour periods of time with the tow aircraft maintaining a comfortable and safe flight altitude of 1000-2000 ft. Previous work has detailed turbulence, water vapor and carbon dioxide fluxes from the CT...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a palm-sized and low-cost instrument for measuring the characteristics and distribution of airborne black carbon aerosol particles. Based on an existing analyzer, the optical property analyzer will use photoacoustic detection of aerosol light absorption in a miniature pa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-190
Budget: 10/16/08 - 04/16/09

An integrating nephelometer is proposed that can be deployed on a variety of platforms including powered aircraft and towed vehicles. The design allows air to pass freely through the sample cell with no restrictions. A sampling rate of up to 100 hz will allow for aerosol flux measurements. The light scattering coefficient will be measured a...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Aerosols resulting from the particle emissions of combustion can pose a hazard to health and threaten ecosystems. In an effort to better understand and decrease the deleterious impact of these aerosols, the DOE is investing significant resources into new instrumentation and field programs that better characterize their physical, chemical and opt...
