  1. Optimization of the NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 9030268R

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a primary diagnostic tool in scientific research and clinical imaging. Despite the excellent image quality that can be obtained with today’s MRIs, images acquired using different MRI systems and during longitudinal studies are not reproducible, and hence can be difficult, if not impossible, to compare. To address this issue, a standardized test of the ...

  2. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 841D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  3. Monitoring Active Region Development of the Far-Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841W

    Solar active regions have a major impact on space weather. Knowledge of active regions in the Sun’s far hemisphere can improve forecasts of impending solar storms and future UV irradiance variations that negatively impact spacecraft, communications, and navigation facilities, thus making knowledge of active region locations and strengths of great benefit to society. We will use algorithms based ...

  5. Novel Method for Ground-based GNSS Radio Occultation Measurement

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 861X

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to redesign our existing Enhanced Tropospheric Effects Compensation ground-based radio occultation (RO) measurement system, which was developed, prototyped, and demonstrated under previous SBIR contracts, for the purpose of optimizing cost and performance. Assimilation of space-based RO measurements into numerical weather models is a proven met ...

  6. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...

  7. Novel Trap for Ticks and Fleas Incorporating a CO2 Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP13007

    Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working. Unfortunately, current surveillance tools are ineffective. In Phase I TDA designed, prototyped, and tested a novel ti ...

  8. Champion Business Assistance Process

    SBC: Dakin Lawtech Llc            Topic: N/A

    Businesses seeking to participate in NIST programs or to acquire technology from a federal laboratory are faced with a confusing myriad of starting points. Typically, time and money is expended to qualify the benefit of any program or technology. Even when the search is successfully concluded, it is common for the business or the federal contract to lack resources necessary to yield a commercial ...

  10. Personal Computer Database and Software for Spectroscopy of Diatomic Molecules

    SBC: Kinera Research & Software            Topic: N/A

    A database and software package is proposed containing the spectroscopic constants of diatomic molecules in the well known text "Constants of Diatomic Molecules" by Huber and Herzberg. This database will be a self-contained executable program for personal computers. It will not only allow the users to extract data for particular molecules but will also process the data and graphically display ro ...
