The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. XpressRules-PM: Commercial Implementation of PM/NGAC

    SBC: XpressRules LLC            Topic: NA

    New Generation Access Control (NGAC)—because of its “neutrality by design”—represents the most effective and scalable approach for deploying “smart” access control and consent solutions in large dynamic scenarios. NGAC however presents with its own problems: (1) it has miniscule recognition and uptake in the workplace, (2) it is unusable by non-technical policy officers and (3) its doc ...

  2. A Blubber- or Dorsal Fin-Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Ph ...

  3. XpressRules-PM: Commercial Implementation of PM/NGAC

    SBC: XpressRules LLC            Topic: NA

    This proposal represents a collaborative response by XpressRules and NIST to a two-fold demand from the information security marketplace. The business requirement (for true policy governance) is that asset owners and steward themselves-and not IT—become directly accountable for the life cycles of their rules and policies. The technical requirement (for an adequate data model) is that the policie ...

  4. Natural Adjuvants to Enhance Efficacy of Viral Vaccines for Mariculture

    SBC: ProFishent Inc            Topic: 812

    Marine aquaculture production now exceeds 20 million metric tons annually (FAO 2010) but viral diseases are still a major threat to the expansion of sustainable mariculture systems (National Marine Fisheries Service 2007). Pathogenic viruses continue to devastate many fish and shellfish operations every year (ICES Mariculture Committee 2004, Lightner 2011). To date, vaccines against aquatic anim ...

  5. Chemometric Support for Temperature-programmed Sensing System

    SBC: Eigenvector Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Temperature Programmed Sensing (TPS) system developed at NIST presents many opportunities and unique challenges. The data output from the system can be quite complex and there are many opportunities to optimize the system for specific sensing scenarios. We propose a program aimed at characterizing the system so that potential problems (such as system drift) can be solved early so that the full ...

  6. Renewable Electric Energy Source for Special Operations Force (SOF) Maritime Combatant Craft

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM05001

    Stirling Technology Company (STC) has developed several Free-Piston Stirling Engine (FPSE) generators with outputs ranging from 10 W to 3 kW. These engines are very quiet, adaptable to virtually any fuel, and can run continuously. However, existing units are relatively heavy. STC proposes to leverage over 2 decades of development into a Special Operations Power System (SOPS) that directly addresse ...

  7. High Power Single Frequency Source for Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NIST is using a sensitive optical technique called cavity ring-down detection to permit detection of impurities in semiconductor process gases, which cause substantial losses in manufacturing yield. In order to increase the sensitivity and range of application of this technique, improved single frequency laser sources are required. In particular, lasers providing more power, narrower line-width, b ...

  8. The H-Anim+ System: An Open Source Hardware Accelerated Human Avatar Browser API

    SBC: YUMETECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Adopting open standards such as the X3D and H-Anim reduce costs and ensure the longevity of applications involving human avatars. However, graphics hardware currently requires customized of vertex shader programming to optimize rendering. Yumetech, Inc. and Vcom3D propose the H-Anim+ Browser API: a generic vertex-skinning scheme for the H-Anim specification. The Phase 1 objective is to develop a g ...

  9. Advanced Vision & Position Acquisition System (AVPAS)

    SBC: B.E. MEYERS & CO., INC.            Topic: SOCOM04005

    B.E. Meyers & Company proposes to deliver the Phase I requirements of the AVPAS by utilizing its research and development resources to examine new technologies, architectures, and designs. These efforts will result in providing to the government the market research, proof-of-concept analysis, and a proposed design for an AVPAS prototype. The prototype design will be founded on incremental testin ...

  10. High power single frequency source for cavity ring-down spectroscopy

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aculight proposes to develop a laser source that will enable NIST to perform highly sensitive water vapor detection via cavity ring-down spectroscopy. The source will operate over a wavelength region centered at 1380nm. It will be based upon frequency conversion of a single frequency fiber source using an optical parametric oscillator (OPO).The performance of the source in terms of several critica ...
