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. Interactive Software Tools for Processing QIF-formatted Part Models to Generate Realistic and Accurate Measurement Plans and Programs in Standard Digital Languages

    SBC: METROSAGE, L L C            Topic: NA

    The QIF standard shows the promise of offering an environment where best-in-class metrology applications can be linked to yield solutions that are automated, optimized, adaptive, and traceable, maintaining the agility required to ensure U. S. global competitiveness. While the QIF standard has reached a substantial level of comprehensiveness and maturity, the embodiment of the standard in actual, c ...

  2. Secure Role-Based System for Distributed Network Measurement

    SBC: POLLERE, INC.            Topic: NA

    Network measurement is a critical element in networks but it has largely been an afterthought and inadequately secured. With the emergence of Information-Centric Networking technologies, specifically the popular open source Named-Data Networking (NDN), there is the early stage opportunity to create a useful and flexible network measurement system that can accommodate a range of network probes. Thi ...

  3. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: NA

    In this SBIR effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies and complement existing NIST Raman spe ...

  4. Large Field of View Microscope for Rapid, High-Resolution Imaging

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: NA

    In this SBIR effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop and deliver a high-resolution (< 1.2 micron) microscope that can rapidly (< 60 seconds) image a large field of view (> 1 cm2). The instrument will provide a wide array of imaging modalities, including brightfield, darkfield, fluorescence, quantitative phase, and Rheinberg imaging. In Phase II, Nikira Labs will fabricate, test, and deliver a ...

  8. SeaTag-SP: A Spawning Detecting and Reporting Pop-UpSatellite Tag

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The application of acoustic sensing in small, affordable, satellite connected ocean devices has broad potential. This proposal focuses at first on the specific topic requirement, designing a popup satellite tag (PSAT) incorporating an acoustic receiver to identify and report the timing and location of fish spawning based on signal presence/absence detection for a tiny pinger wh ...

  9. FogViewer

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The presence of fog reduces visibility, contributing to unsafe conditions for many maritime tasks. The current system uses active backscatter and has high power requirements, high maintenance and replacement costs. Areté Associates’ innovative FogViewer system comprises a passive multi-spectral, multi-polarization sensor suite that leverages available degrees of freedom to b ...

  10. Feasibility of a Recoverable, Balloon-Based, GNSS-RO Platform

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The SBIR Phase I proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in assessing the feasibility of performing GNSS radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a balloon platform. In Phase I, NCL will perform appropriate trade studies and sensitivity studies to identify key design requirements for the balloon-based GNSS-RO payload and the balloon platform. A lowcost, proof-of-conce ...
