  1. Detectors with Integrated Filters for Solar VUV Observations

    SBC: International Radiation Detectors, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Fabrication of stable, nearly 100% internal carrier collection efficiency silicon photodiodes (AXUV diodes) for 1 nm to 600 nm photons was successfully demonstrated by us several years ago. Owing to their excellent characteristics, these devices are being used by NIST as transfer standards in 5 nm to 250 nm range and aboard SOHO, SNOE and TIMED instruments for the EUV solar spectrum studies. Alt ...

  2. An Innovative Raster-Mirror Optical Detection System for CCD Camera Bistatic Lidar

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 812

    An innovative optical system with 500X higher ¿tendu and spatial resolution will be designed for CCD-based bistatic lidar. A 100¿ vertical field of view is required to image the laser beam from the ground through the boundary layer, but only a few degrees are required in the horizontal direction. The proposed design is based on dividing the vertical field of view into N sectors, using 1D rasteri ...

  3. A Prototype Fish Metrology System for Open Ocean Aquaculture

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 845

    Open-ocean aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several refinements this technology must undergo in order to maximize productivity. One of the specific areas of refinement is in gathering detailed statistical knowledge of the captive fish stock population as a function of time. This knowledge will allow optimization of feed rates. Optimized feed rates will mini ...

  4. An Autonomous Gas Chromatograph for Measurement of Greenhouse Gases in Airborne Applications

    SBC: Sonoma Technology, Inc.            Topic: 815

    An automated, high precision, lightweight gas chromatograph, capable of measuring hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) with a fast duty cycle (1 sample per two minutes) will be designed and built. The detector used for the chromatograph will be an electron capture detector with sensitivity enhanced by addition of nitrous oxide (N2O) reagent gas. The instrum ...

  5. Software to calculate occupant forces in real world crashes

    SBC: Dynamic Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for economical, high capacity softwre to aid medical and engineering researchers to more easily and consistently calculate forces acting on vehicle occupants during real-world crashes. One example of such research is NHTSA's Crash Injury research and Engineering Network (CIREN), which in adition to collecting injury and vehicle information, has increasing access to data from Event D ...

  6. Study of an online school improvement implementation and monitoring tool for schools

    SBC: Rockman et al.            Topic: N/A

    ROCKMAN ET AL and WestEd propose to research a promising school improvement tool designed to assist schools with implementing improvement processes. As evidenced in the Phase I feasibility study, the School Improvement Implementation and Monitoring Tool (SIIMT) has been shown to provide valuable help in a variety of settings. In a two-year Phase II research study, we propose to refine and add feat ...

  7. Error Reduction in Dipole-Source Localization Models

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We are developing means to reduce errors in Dipole Source Localization (DSL). DSL is commonly used to analyze brain waves for clinical and research purposes. It is known from our work and the work of others that the models used to compute the DSL are not perfect, but it is not known how much the imperfect models affect the solutions obtained. Based upon our ...

  9. Genetic Assay for Inhibitors of RNA-Protein Interactions

    SBC: ADVANCED GENETIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RNA-protein interactions play critical roles in cellular regulatory processes and in the life cycles of many pathogenic viruses including HIV, hepatitis C, SARS, and West Nile virus, and thus represent attractive targets for therapeutics. We have developed novel cell-based assays to identify drugs that target the RNA-protein interactions. The assays incorporate a system of genetic reporters to acc ...

  10. High throughput screen of behavior using piezo-imaging

    SBC: AFASCI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neurobehavioral assessments, including arousal activity level and sleep pattern, are endpoints of global nervous system function. Virtually all pathological conditions, particularly neuropsychological disorders such as anxiety and depression, and a variety of different classes of drugs, can lead to the alteration of behavior and disturbance of sleep. Although a ...
