  1. Low-Cost Transportable HF Skywave Radar

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 2001 Department of Commerce
  2. N/A

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The key innovation of this proposal is the use of Time Modulated Ultra-Wideband (TM-UWB) technology to develop a low cost radio system that allows both voice communication and tracking positions of fire fighters inside buildings. This radio has several characteristics which make it ideal for tracking multiple individuals without line-of-sight. During Phase I we have performed many tests, incl ...

  3. N/A

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This is a Phase 2 proposal to develop an instrument to simultaneously measure particle size, velocity, and concentration in applications characterized by a large size range and high particle concentration. The instrument will be based on the Pulse Displacement Technique whose feasibility was demonstrated during Phase 1. Experiments performed during Phase 1 demonstrated a high accuracy in meas ...

  5. Development of Real-Time PCR Assays for the Detection of Viruses in Penaeid Shrimp

    SBC: Super Shrimp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 2001 Department of Commerce
  6. N/A

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: N/A

    As flip-chip bonding becomes the predominant standard in the electronics industry, the increased proximity between dice surfaces and packaging materials will require a significant reduction in the latter's alpha particle activity in order to avoid soft errors. Emission rates at or below 0.001 a/cm2/hr are desirable, which is well below the 0.0050 a/cm2/hr capability of today's best detectors. ...

  7. Rapid Prototyping of continuous fiber reinforced ceramic matrix composites

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For propulsion related applications, materials must be able to demonstrate excellent ablation and oxidation resistance at temperature approaching 3500?C, adequate load bearing capabilities, non-catastrophic failure modes, and ability to withstand transient thermal shock. Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) has developed low cost, flexible-manufacturing processes for Zr & Hf-based carbon fiber r ...

  8. Heatpipe Power System (HPS) In-Space Fueling, A Simplified Approach

    SBC: Advanced Methods & Materials (AMM)            Topic: N/A

    A major objection to the use of nuclear energy for space applications is the perceived risk involved in the launching of a fully fueled nuclear reactor. Even when it is pointed out that the fuel is in fact not radioactive, concerns persist. It is acknowledged that to design a reactor able to withstand all conceivable launch accidents would result in an impractical heavy design. To avoid the above ...

  9. Autonomous Docking with the Laser Dynamic Range Imager Optical Sensor

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I proposal develops a novel technology to automate the process of docking the Shuttle to the International Space Station (ISS). This technology is based on the Laser Dynamic Range Imager (LDRI) and a cross-plane point tracking algorithm. The LDRI provides the range measurement from the laser unit to the field of view for far or near inspection distances. The LDRI is a dynamic adaptation ...

  10. MagOrion-A Nuclear Propelled MagSail for Human Exploration of the Outer Planets

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Manned exploration beyond Mars requires very high specific energy. The only potential solution under discussion is fusion propulsion. However, fusion has been ten years away for forty years. We have an available solution that combines new technology with an old concept ¿ ¿Project Orion¿. The proposed MagOrion Propulsion System combines a magnetic sail (MagSail) with conventional small yield (0. ...
