  1. Reuse Support Tools for Automated Constructino of Software Systems

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reuse in software engineering is an exciting concept that has yet to be reliably implemented. The number of program subroutines that are truly generic (and therefore applicable across all applications) is limited. However, there are specific applications that are required by many organizations, albeit with a set of constraints specific to each organization. This project proposes to design a too ...

  2. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...

  3. Gulliver Miniature Guarded Hot Plate Apparatus

    SBC: Drf R&d, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a miniature guarded hot plate apparatus that can be used to determine the thermal conductivity or thermal resistance of very small specimens (1 to 3 cm square) of thermal insulation materials over a temperature range from at least -40 degrees Celsius to +65 degrees Celsius, with the apparatus having the capability to carry out measurements under controlled environments of ...

  4. Development of a Commercially Viable Equivalence Ratio Meter

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A combustion environment can be described by a characteristic fuel-to-air ratio normalized by the stoichiometric fuel-to-air ratio, otherwise defined as an equivalence ratio, _. The equivalence ratio is used extensively in a wide range of combustion fields from fundamental flame studies, to full-scale fire testing, to power plant operations. There have been basically two methods for calculating ...

  5. Accessible Virtual Reality for Machinist Training Modules

    SBC: Microcompatibles, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will emphasize outfitting a virtual classroom and creating a skills (CNC) oriented training program. The virtual classroom will involve contextual learning using a realistic simulation of the manufacturing environment. The simulation will have all of the characteristics of a machine shop, but will allow the learner to explore and experiment ("discover") in ways that would not be pr ...

  6. Ultrasonic Inspection for Neck/Shoulder Cracks in Aluminum Gas Cylinders

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    Recent catastrophic failures of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) aluminum gas cylinders and similar air tanks have generated the need for a highly reliable, low cost inspection method to insure the integrity of these tanks. The failures of these tanks have been the result of crack formation in the neck and shoulder area. The cracks originate from the interior wall and can re ...

  7. A SENSITIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGING DETECTOR FOR COLD NEUTRONS

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL PHOTOSTIMULABLE PHOSPHOR IMAGING TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED TO REPLACE BULKY COUNTING SYSTEMS CURRENTLY USED IN NEUTRON DIFFRACTION AND SCATTERING INVESTIGATIONS. THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE PROPOSED DETECTOR CAN BE VARIED TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO MOVE THE DETECTION SYSTEM CLOSER TO THE SCATTERING SAMPLE, THEREBY INCREASING THE NEUTRONS AVAILABLE FOR DETECTION AND SHRINKING THE SIZE OF THE EXPERIME ...

  8. Innovative Magnetic NDE System for Micromagnetic Imaging

    SBC: SFA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project is investigating the application of magnetic recording and micromachine technologies to the development of a novel magnetic nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system. Magnetic NDE methods based on Barkhausen signal detection and analysis can provide valuable information about the state of stress of steel materials. However, Barkhausen signals do not appear to be correlated with the ext ...

  9. Classification of Breast Lesions In Ultrasound Imaging

    SBC: Advanced Applications            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a computer-assisted system to improve the ability of breast sonography to distinguifrom benign lesions. These are lesions originally detected by mammography and sent to ultrasound forThe lesions are biopsied when they are classified by ultrasound as solid or indeterminate, even thoubenign at biopsy. Because of the large numbers of breast biopsies being performed, even a small impro ...

  10. Instrumentation & Reagents for Ion/2nd Messenger Imaging

    SBC: Atto Instruments, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this grant, we seek to fully implement one aspect of our overall long term goal of developingadvanced instrumentation and reagents for ion and second messenger imaging and analysis. Ourinstrumentation development efforts have-proceeded quite well in the area of hardware and softwareto support any combination of dual excitation and or dual emission fluorescent ratio imaging. We willapply our uni ...
