  1. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: 9050868TT

    Currently, there are over 10,000 MRI scanners used in the US alone. US citizens today are mobile and many times medical treatments may require MRI scans from several different facilities. Images from MRI scanners can also drift over time. There is a tremendous need for all medical imaging scanners to be on the same level. Sigma-K will develop the commercialization of the ISMRM/NIST MRI Calibration ...

  2. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  3. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    The applicant will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will ve entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and ha ...

  4. Helicopter Hostile Fire Indication Sensor

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM11001

    One of the most critical challenges facing our war fighter is to detect enemy fire quickly and accurately for force protection. Existing acoustic systems protect against gunshots only and are relatively slow; optical systems are large and expensive, suffer from a high false alarm rate, and do not provide 360 degree coverage. To address these issues, Oceanit has developed an enhanced Hostile Fire ...

  5. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  6. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts in the current project will include prototype s ...
