Phase 2 STTR Active

Institution: University of New Mexico

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 27a
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

There is a considerable amount of available, but generally unused energy in rivers, streams and man-made channels, particularly at very low heads of less than 10’. Unfortunately, this resource is disseminated across thousands of locations, each with different head, flow, and site conditions. An affordable technical solution is needed to allow th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 23c
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Accelerator components such as damping rings make use of precisely-aligned magnetic fields to achieve performance. Certifying and optimizing these systems requires instrumentation that can measure the magnetic field and its spatial distribution. Furthermore, the instruments must fit within the limited space available in the beam path. Southwest ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 8.6.1
Budget: 07/18/16 - 07/24/18

Recent research has suggested that the commonly used assumption of dry air having no net flux is erroneous and can lead to significant errors in reported observations for eddy correlation flux measurements. If the density of nitrogen was measured directly, the accuracy of these measurements would be improved greatly. Southwest Sciences, Inc. pro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: SB161-005
Budget: 06/27/16 - 03/26/17

This SBIR Phase I proposal will investigate a method for measuring magnetic gradients using a pair of cesium vapor cells. The approach involves measuring free-induction decay of atomic polarization based on a method patented by the proposers. By measuring decays in two spatially separate cells, a signal can be extracted which is largely free of ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.07
Budget: 04/19/16 - 04/18/18

In this Phase II SBIR program, Southwest Sciences will continue the development of small, low power instrumentation for real-time direct measurement of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) in the atmosphere, especially targeting airborne measurements. The instrument is based on a room temperature interband cascade laser (ICL) operating in the 4800 - 4900 nm ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14b
Budget: 04/11/16 - 04/10/18

Contaminants in concentrations as small as a fraction of a part per million can poison fuel cells in hydrogen powered vehicles. Thus, contaminant detection at hydrogen fuel stations is needed. An instrument that can monitor the fuel purity is sought. Construction of hydrogen fuel stations are starting to accelerate, making this issue a priority....

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T021
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16

Spectroscopic measurement of gases in combustors is notoriously difficult due to constraints imposed by severe operating conditions, including high temperatures and pressures, vibration, soot, limited optical access, and acoustic noise. Nevertheless, these kinds of measurements can provide critical information on the combustion processes occurri...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Southwest Sciences proposes to develop small, low power instrumentation for the real-time direct measurement of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) in the atmosphere, especially targeting airborne measurements. The instrument will be based on a recently introduced room temperature interband cascade laser (ICL) operating in the 4830 nm region. This laser ha...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T6.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

Southwest Sciences Inc. (SWS), in collaboration with the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), will develop a reliable, ultra compact, low power diode laser multigas sensor to measure carbon dioxide (CO2), ammonia (NH3), oxygen (O2) and water vapor (H2O) concentrations in the presence of saturated and condensable water concentrations appropriate ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.07
Budget: 05/18/15 - 05/17/17

An aircraft system for detecting ambient methane will be developed in this project. The system will use a diode laser to perform a wavelength modulation absorption measurement of this greenhouse gas. The optical system will feature a open path system that is mounted outside the aircraft. The system will make measurements at a 10 Hz rate.
