Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18a
Budget: 04/10/17 - 04/09/19

Amethyst Research, in collaboration with InView, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is developing an infrared imaging system to detect and quantify greenhouse gas emissions, to better understand their life cycle and role in global earth system dynamics.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19a
Budget: 02/21/17 - 02/20/18

The predictive skill of reactive transport models of hydrobiogeochemical processes currently being used to simulate the coupled interactions of complex subsurface systems (soils, rhizosphere, sediments, aquifers, the vadose zone and groundwaters) is limited by the accuracy of the model parameters that represent subsurface system structure and in...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19a
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

Determination of isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Wisconsin, Madison

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T009
Budget: 08/30/16 - 02/22/17

For the last few decades, there has been great activity aimed at developing III-V based alternatives to HgCdTe for LWIR detection. The goals include improved cost, uniformity, size/weight/power consumption, and performance. This III-V detector activity includes both materials advances and device design. Based on recent developments, there appear...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 21c
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

Over the past decade, advances in shale characterization and stimulation technology have opened Hydrocarbon bearing shale to exploitation. The success of all of these plays can depend on the proper characterization of the shale reservoir. To determine if favorable composition and structure are present, it is currently necessary to conduct a numb...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-042
Budget: 07/26/16 - 01/22/17

The extended short wavelength infrared (e-SWIR) wavelength band is a performance gap for infrared detectors. At both shorter and longer wavelengths, high performance detector technologies exist: SWIR InGaAs detectors (1.7 m cutoff), and MWIR (3-5 m cutoff) detectors such as InAs-based and GaSb-based Unipolar Barriers, MCT, and InSb. This program...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.07
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Miniaturized gas sensors with high sensitivity that are compact, low power and low weight are needed to support for NASA's airborne science missions, particularly those utilizing the Global Hawk, SIERRA-class, Dragon Eye or other unmanned aircraft. These UAV gas sensors are intended as calibration/validation systems for space-based measurements...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: SB153-002
Budget: 03/14/16 - 12/31/16

Exploitation of new chip-scale optical frequency comb sources demands improvements in the performance of MWIR/LWIR detectors. These detectors must meet the following specifications: High speed ( < 5 GHz), high-sensitivity (NEP < 1pW/Hz^1/2), broad spectral response (Octave), all at TEC operating temperatures. At present, no single detector exist...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 13a
Budget: 02/23/16 - 11/21/16

Next generation advances in subsurface technologies will enable access to large amounts of clean, renewable geothermal energy, as well as safer development of domestic natural gas supplies. The subsurface also provides hundreds of years of safe storage capacity for carbon dioxide (CO2) and opportunities for environmentally responsible management...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18a
Budget: 01/01/16 - 11/21/16

Significant improvements in the technology to monitor greenhouse gases are required. In particular there is need to be able to simultaneously monitor both small (~m) and large area sites (~ 100km) and in rugged/inaccessible terrain. For example, sensitive, accurate, and real-time monitoring of hydrobiogeochemical processes are needed in subsurfa...
