  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  2. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  3. Analysis of New WWVB Modulation Schemes for Future Broadcast

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project targets the completion of the development of an improved system for the broadcasting of the WWVB signal, as a direct continuation of the Phase 1 project, which successfully validated the proposed approach through a feasibility study and analyses. Objectives of this project include the design of the new modulation scheme and protocol, the development of a new time-code generato ...

  4. Development of a non-destructive, quantitative residual stress assessment tool

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    A nondestructive tool will be developed to quatitatively assess residual stress in pipelines from the exterior and through coatings. Residual stress is a critical factor that determines the cracking susceptibility of pipeline steels, but existing methods for measuring mechanical damage in pipeline steels are incapable of quantifying the residual stress levels. A larger gouge or dent does not nec ...

  5. Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System (IDEAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 111FH3

    International Electronic Machines (IEM) Corp. will develop the Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System, or IDEAS.  In Phase I, IEM will examine two different approaches for achieving the goal of accurate, reliable dimensioning and classification of moving vehicles at highway speeds.  IDEAS will leverage prior work by IEM for the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), New York State

  6. Long Term Behavior, Failure Analysis & In-Service Testing of Composite Cylinders

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: 101PH1

    TRI proposes to develop reliable methodology and protocols for in-service inspection,recertifying and retiring DOT COPVs to maximize service life while ensuring personnel safety. This method must be sufficiently robust to prevent in-service failures, while being straightforward and affordable enough to be conducted at cylinder recertification facilities. To accomplish this with a high degree of co ...

  7. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  8. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  9. No Power Detection and Identification of Nerve Agents

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD10101

    Identification of organophosphates (OPs) based nerve agents, is vital to the protection of U.S. armed forces personnel. Existing detection methods use bulky and expensive laboratory equipment, negating their battlefield use. Colorimetric indicators such as the currently deployed M8 and M9 detection papers are the fastest, cheapest, and easiest type of detector to use; however, these cannot detect ...

  10. Smart Grade Crossing Monitor System

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR2

    During Phase I, IEM developed a proof of concept for a Smart Grade Crossing Monitor (SGCM) using multispectral imaging technology for enhanced monitoring of highway rail grade crossings to improve safety by providing warnings of significant objects present in the crossing. The Phase I work conclusively demonstrated that multispectral imaging is clearly superior to visible or infrared spectrum imag ...
