  1. 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 ...

  2. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    High-frequency acoustic modems are required to provide undersea communication networks to support covert surveillance operations. These modems can also be used as platforms for compact, low power surveillance sensors and processing. A natural first step would be to integrate a capability for passive acoustic detection of ships and submarines. A multi-phase effort is proposed for integrating passiv ...

  3. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  4. Typical day Meteorological Data for Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) modeling

    SBC: MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENTAL SIMULATIONS AND OPERATIONS, INC            Topic: DTRA06004

    The atmospheric transport and dispersion (ATD) model requirements for describing the environmental conditions that are most likely to occur on any given day, called the "typical day", are very unique. The model requirements are unique because the typical day requirements for ATD must be both typical in representing the most likely occurring condition of each variable and be mass-balanced across t ...

  5. Robust Automated Vector Information Production and Storage Technologies

    SBC: POLATIN CORP.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    The research described in this proposal is intended to provide a basis for the development of software for automated vector feature exctraction from imagery. The specific purpose of the proposed work is to formulate realistic and computationally efficient models, methodologies and test-bed codes for automated recognization, classification, vectorization, and storage of features found in high reso ...

  6. Interactive Language Trainer

    SBC: PROGRESSIVE EXPERT CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06010

    US Special Operations Command has a requirement for effective language training to equip SOF soldiers, sailors and airmen when they are deployed to foreign countries. We propose to create a system which would combine a user-friendly game and real-time interaction with subject matter experts. End users will have a fun, engaging application and also have the chance to engage live langauge experts. T ...

  7. Tactical Biometric Registration and Recognition Suite

    SBC: Ultra-Scan Corporation            Topic: SOCOM06004

    The ability to positively identify individuals and exchange standardized information between disparate databases is critical to the success of the Global War on Terror. In response to this need, Ultra-Scan Corporation proposes to develop a rugged, one-man portable multimodal biometric solution offering reliability, high performance, and standardized data outputs for use in any operational environ ...

  8. Next Generation Blast Protection Technologies and Combined Blast and CBRN Protection Technologies

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06003

    Various procedures have been proposed for evaluation/mitigation of the potential for progressive collapse in the design and/or retrofit process. These range from passive procedures that evaluate the redundancy of structures to limit failure through redistribution of gravitation loads after key elements such as columns have been removed to complete nonlinear finite element analyses of buildings sub ...

  9. Vacuum Windows for Third Generation Syschrotron Radiation Beamlines

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Improving the quality and intensity of the x-ray beam is an important design goal for every synchrotron installation. Although small, the effects of vacuum windows on x-ray absorption and phase contrast cannot be neglected. Synchrotron x-rays have wavelengths on the order of one Angstrom (1 x 10-10m), the same order of magnitude as inter-atomic distances. These x-rays are used to study many differ ...

  10. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...
