The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  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. A Web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2)

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    In Phase I, we identified the need for a readily accessible web-based framework that integrates a credible hydrologic model with climate change and forecast products for hydrological impact studies and water supply projections.  The focus in developing the Phase I Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2) prototype was to develop an infrastructure that addresses the critical dec ...

  6. Visible Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Spatial Light Modulators

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There are many applications for hyperspectral image detectors, but for the detectors to be widely accepted standardized calibration protocols must be developed. This research aims to bridge this gap through the development of a commercially available hyperspectral image projector (HIP) system. The proposed effort is to build a prototype visible HIP system to generate calibrated, realistic imagery ...

  7. Kilopixel Array Cryostat (KPAC) System for Mulit-kilogram Transition Edge Sensor (TES) Arrays

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Transition Edge Sensor (TES) detector development at NIST has reached a level where arrays containing several thousand pixels (kilopixels) are practical and , indeed, necessary for fielding systems required for many industrial, research, and homeland security applications. Current easily deployable cryostat technology required to reach the ultra-cold operating temperatures of TES arrays (50 to 100 ...

  8. Development of Broadband VIPAs in Mid-to Long Infrared

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA designs do not work in the spectroscopically important mid- and long-infrared wavelengths, and do not have large operating bandwidths compatible with femtosecond combs. Incorporating resolution improvements from ...
