  1. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: 90

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface that allows an user to label arbitrary 3D objects, identify assembly poin ...

  3. High Throughput, High-Pressure Small-Angle Neutron Scattering Sample Environment

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 90

    We address a need of the neutron user community by creating a minimum viable prototype of the only high-throughput hydrostatic pressure small angle neutron scattering sample environment (HTHP-SANS-SE). Our HTHP-SANS-SE will greatly improve the ease of use and reliability of measurements under extreme environments, thereby increasing throughput on the beamline and expanding feasibility. Current HP- ...

  4. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 90

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if complex flow patterns exist, which is common. Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of perfo ...

  5. Advanced Measurement Probe System for Non-Nulling Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 90

    Industrial facilities and power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing method developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error due to biases from human operators and any non-axial flow in a stack.NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow testing f ...

  6. Small Satellite Cloud Observation System

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 9601

    We propose the design of an optical instrument package capable of making cloud observations and deployable on a CubeSat. The design will be based on decades of research in cloud remote sensing and each spectral channel will be comprised of a commercial-off-the-shelf camera and a spectral filter as needed. The base design will be comprised of three channels, two in the shortwave infrared and one in ...

  7. Enabling BLOS UAS Operations through a Diverse-Source Global Positioning System

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 9501

    Enabling BLOS operations in the National Airspace System is largely an issue of improved sensing. Under the UTM rules, BLOS operations require performance authorization from the FAA centered around navigation, communications, sharing of intent, avoiding other aircraft, and connecting to the FAA in near real-time. The current plan initially is for these performance metrics to be evaluated by the FA ...

  8. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 9201

    Coral transplantation is a primary management option for rehabilitation of degraded reefs. Stabilization (via adhesion, etc.) of transplants on existing reef or artificial substrates notably improves their survival rate. Improved underwater adhesives are needed for expedient and convenient stabilization of coral transplants with improved survival rate. A new hybrid organic-inorganic adhesive is pr ...

  9. An Innovative Approach to Seafloor Classification: Applying Advanced Unsupervised Machine Learning in Complex and Variable Bottom Types with Multispectral Satellite Imagery

    SBC: TCarta Marine LLC            Topic: 9603

    Machine learning and unsupervised classification have been applied to seafloor classification and benthic mapping using multibeam echosounders (MBES), Light Ranging and Detection (LiDAR), airborne hyperspectral, underwater optical cameras, and satellite imagery. Regardless of the sensor, data dimensionality reduction is an integral processing step of seabed mapping workflows . The most commonly im ...

  10. A Low-Cost Atmospheric Aerosol Monitoring System for Boundary Layer Air Quality, Visibility, Cloud Ceiling Height and Aerosol Properties

    SBC: BJE Environmental Optics LLC            Topic: 9601

    This proposal addresses subtopic 9.6.01, Low-cost Oceanic and Atmospheric Sensors and Observing Systems. It is proposed that two instruments for measuring atmospheric aerosols be commercialized to operate automatically and routinely. Both instruments have been used in research settings for many years and share several aspects of technology. They could both be commercialized with significant advant ...
