  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Credential Management

    SBC: ECleide (VKD Shoppe, Inc.)            Topic: N/A

    The ability to electronically identify users and their devices is increasingly becoming an integral part of our interaction with computing platforms. Whether an operating system is contacting the manufacturer's web site to confirm its proper registration and payment today, or a cell phone is broadcasting entrance credentials to a secure physical site tomorrow, it is apparent that identifying infor ...

  7. Ontology based Computational Tools for Distributed CAD

    SBC: Lateral Eye, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CAD CAM technologies have had an immense impact on the product development process in the last two decades. Current technologies, however, have limited knowledge representation and computational capabilities to enable collaboration of design decisions beyond commercial Internet based collaboration tools. In the Phase 1 Lateral Eye proposes to develop a new framework for Knowledge Integrated comput ...

  10. 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 ...
