  1. STRATEGY FOR A UV-B MONITORING NETWORK: VERIFICATION, CALIBRATION, AND INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

    SBC: BIOSPHERICAL INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SINCE THE DISCOVERY OF THE "OZONE HOLE" THE MONITORING OF LONG TERM TRENDS AND GEOGRAPHICAL VARIABILITY OF UV IRRADIANCE AND HOW IT IMPACTS OUR ENVIRONMENT HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT. THERE IS AN IMMEDIATE NEED TO DEPLOY NETWORKS OF SUITABLE INSTRUMENTATION YET THERE APPEARS TO BE NO SIGNIFICANT LEVEL OF AGREEMENT THAT SUITABLE AND COST-EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES EVEN EXIST. THIS PROPOSED EFFOR ...

  2. ELECTRONIC DATA GATHERING SYSTEM FOR SCIENTIFIC DIVERS

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DIVER SCIENTIST COMMONLY RELY ON A VARIETY OF INSTRUMENTS TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR MISSION. USING MULTIPLE SPECIALIZED INSTRUMENTS HOWEVER NOT ONLY IS COSTLY, BUT ALSO LIMITS A DIVERS MOBILITY. STILL, MANY CAPABILITIES TAKEN FOR GRANTED BY "TOP-SIDE" FIELD RESEARCHERS, SUCH AS PRECISE NAVIGATION AND COMPUTERIZED RECORD TAKING, REMAIN UNSATISFIED OR ARE NOT ADEQUATELY ADDRESSED BY CONVENTIONAL MEANS. TH ...

  3. SOFT X-RAY SILICON PHOTODIODES FOR SYNCHROTRON RADIATION SURFACE ANALYSIS

    SBC: International Radiation Detectors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SILICON P-N JUNCTION PHOTODIODES (AXUV DIODES) WITH STABLE, THEORETICALLY PREDICTABLE QUANTUM EFFICIENCIES IN THE SOFT X-RAY (1 TO 100 NM) WERE DEVELOPED BY US RECENTLY LEADING TO THEIR USE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN INDEPENDENT RESPONSIVITY SCALE FOR THE SOFT X-RAY REGION. THE LARGEST ACTIVE AREA DIODE DEVELOPED SO FAR IS 3 CM(2) LIMITING THE SOLID ANGLES DURING SURFACE ANALYSIS STUDIES. FABRICA ...

  4. NEW NONINVASIVE SENSOR FOR MONITORING CORROSION IN HARSH ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Quantum Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXPERIMENTS AT THE MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, THE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY, AND QUANTUM MAGNETICS HAVE SHOW THAT CORROSION REACTIONS CREATE MEASURABLE MAGNETIC FIELDS. IN CONTRAST TO OTHER TECHNIQUES, MAGNETIC DETECTION OFFERS THE POSSIBILITY OF DIRECTLY DETECTING CORROSION PROCESSES NONINVASIVELY FROM OUTSIDE THE CORRODING VESSEL. IN PHASE 1, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE MARINE CORROSION ...

  5. HIGH POWER TUNABLE DIODE LASER

    SBC: SDL Inc            Topic: N/A

    DIFFERENCE FREQUENCY MIXING USING DIODE LASERS AS PUMP AND SIGNAL SOURCES PROMISES TO PROVIDE A CHEAP, COMPACT ROOM-TEMPERATURE SOURCE OF MID-IR RADIATION FOR INSTRUMENTS BASED ON IR ABSORPTION. HOWEVER, HIGH POWER TUNABLE SPECTROSCOPIC-QUALITY DIODE LASERS REQUIRED FOR DFM ARE CURRENTLY LACKING. SDL PROPOSES A HIGH POWER TUNABLE LASER THAT PROVIDES OVER ONE WATT OF CW DIFFRACTION-LIMITED SINGLE-S ...

  6. RETINA FOR REAL-TIME COMPUTATION OF IMAGE FLOW

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ADVANCED OPTICAL-FLOW MOTION ESTIMATION AND SEGMENTATION ALGORITHM FOR USE WITH MOBILE ROBOTS. BASED UPON OUR EARLIER WORK ON OPTICAL-FLOW IMAGE ANALYSIS, AN ADVANCED OPTICAL-FLOW SEGMENTATION ALGORITHM, USING DISCONTINUITY INFORMATION IN BOTH VELOCITY AND INTENSITY DOMAINS, PERMITS THE SEGMENTATION OF VIDEO SEQUENCES ALONG NATURALLY OCCURING MOTION BOUNDARIES. ESTIMATING ...

  7. Enhanced Angle Estimation in Adaptive Low Frequency Radar Systems

    SBC: Adaptive Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A target angle estimation technique making effective use of the spatial degrees of freedom of an adaptive array radar system has been developed by ASI and demonstrated to yield unbiased and efficient angle estimates in near-main beam jammer environments. The program objective of progressing towards a feasibility demonstration includes optimizing system designs including the detection and post-dete ...

  8. The Development of a Laser Focal Plane Array

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Ladar is becoming increasingly important as a military surveillance, tracking and navigational tool. Current ladar systems use a single pixel combined with a mechanical, two-dimensional scanner to obtain an image. One laser pulse must be transmitted and received for each pixel in the image and considerable processing is required to register the different pixels and assure a coherent two-dimensiona ...

  9. Novel Measurement Techniques for Liquid Rocket Spray Characterization

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of advanced diagnostic techniques and spray characterization methodologies are essential to the understanding of the complex spray process and for validating state-of-the-art CFD codes that are available for describing the spray process. Novel diagnostic techniques and measurement schemes have been proposed for evaluation in this proposal. The application of the well-established phase ...
