  3. High Spatial and Temporal Resolution Velocimetry Measurements for Microfluidic Devices

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF04T024

    Microscale and nanoscale fluid engineering is an emergent technology with applications in many areas including micro-gas turbine engines, space propulsion, biotechnology, and materials processing. Uncertainties in the near-wall velocity flow and in the exact nature of the fluid-solid boundary condition become particularly important for microengineering applications where careful control of flow r ...

  4. Instrumentation for Monitoring Breath Biomarkers for Diagnosis of Health, Condition, Toxic Exposure, and Disease

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF04T017

    Detecting the presence and levels of endogenously produced molecules in expired breath offers potential for non-invasive monitoring of warfighter health, physiologic condition, and toxin/radiation exposure. Until now, exploiting this potential has been limited by a lack of suitable technology for simple, rapid, reliable and versatile breath analysis measurements. To address this need, Physical Sci ...

  6. Speech Synthesis for Distance Cueing in Audio Displays

    SBC: Sensimetrics Corporation            Topic: AF05T002

    The work proposed in this Phase II STTR project is aimed at developing (1) a prototype speech synthesizer capable of manipulating the vocal effort of speech for use in text-to-speech synthesis, and (2) a prototype real-time system dedicated to modifying the apparent vocal effort of an arbitrary speech signal input. These two technical objectives will be achieved by (1) thorough acoustic analysis o ...

  7. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...
