  1. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  2. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  3. LOOSELY-COUPLED NETWORK DATABASE FOR INFORMATION RETRIEVAL

    SBC: Antaire Corp            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE AN EFFICIENT AND COST-EFFECTIVE QUERY PROCESSING COMPONENT FOR AN INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEM BASED ON THE USE OF NETWORKED MICROCOMPUTERS AS A LOOSELY-COUPLED NETWORK DATABASE. THE QUERY PROCESSSING SYSTEM WILL WORK ON BOTH LOCAL AND WIDE AREA NETWORKS AND CAN BE USED WITH ANY METHOD OF INFORMATION RETRIEVAL. WE PROPOSE TO: 1. MODEL THE EXPECTED PERFORMANCE OF THIS SYSTEM SO THAT IT M ...

  4. MULTI-COMPONENT SYNTHESIS THROUGH ARCHITECTURAL PARTITIONING

    SBC: Dasys Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SYSTEM LEVEL DESIGN DECISIONS ARE KEY TO MULTI-COMPONENT SYNTHESIS: THE DETERMINATION OF WHERE TO SPLIT THE FUNCTIONALITY AMONG COMPONENTS HAS A GREAT EFFECT ON THE SIZE AND PERFORMANCE OF THE DESIGN. BY PARTITIONING A BEHAVIOR ONTO SEPARATE MODULES EARLY IN THE DESIGN PROCESS, THE PHYSICAL IMPLICATIONS CAN BE PROPAGATED TO LATER DESIGN STAGES. DASYS PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A TOOL TO AID IN THE DESIGN ...

  5. INTELLIGENT CONTROL OF BRIDGMAN CDZNTE CRYSTAL GROWTH

    SBC: Ii-vi Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LARGE, HIGH QUALITY CDZNTE SINGLE CRYSTALS AREREQUIRED AS HGCDTE EPITAXIAL SUBSTRATES IN THE MANUFACTURE OF INFRARED FOCAL PLANE ARRAYS. BRIDGMAN GROWTH PROCESSES ARE CURRENTLY EMPLOYED TO PRODUCE MATERIALS WHICH MEET SOME APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS, BUT FALL SHORT IN MANY STATE-OF-THE-ART EPITAXIAL HGCDTE DEVICES. BRIDGMANTECHNIQUES, BEING MELT PROCESSES, ARE STRONGLY INFLUENCED BY INTRICATE COUPLI ...

  6. NOVEL CERAMIC/METAL COMPOSITES FOR ARMOR APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Lanxide Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CERAMICS HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE IN THE DEFEAT OF A WIDE RANGE OF KINETIC ENERGY (KE) THREATS. HOWEVER, THE USE OF CERAMICS IN ARMORED VEHICLES HAS BEEN LIMITED DUE IN MOST PART TO THEIR HIGH COST. CERAMIC PARTICULATE REINFORCED METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES (MMCS) PRODUCED BY PRESSURELESS LIQUID METAL INFILTRATION ARE INEXPENSIVE RELATIVE TO MONOLITHIC CERAMICS DUE TO THE LOWER COST OF THE ...

  7. INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN

    SBC: PDF SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    TECHNOLOGY COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN (TCAD) IS THE APPLICATION OF COMPUTER TOOLS TO EXPEDITE THE DESIGN OF INTEGRATED CIRCUIT MANUFACTURING PROCESSES. MANY OF THE TOOLS WHICH ARE USED WERE EITHER DEVELOPED INDEPENDENTLY IN UNIVERSITIES OR IC MANUFACTURING COMPANY RESEARCH CENTERS. CONSEQUENTLY, COMPLEX TCAD TOOLS ARE DIFFICULT TO DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN. TCAD RESEARCHERS HAVE IDENTIFIED THE NEED FOR TCAD ...

  8. INTEROPERABLE TECHNOLOGY COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) TOOLS FOR ELECTRONIC CAD

    SBC: PDF SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    PDF SOLUTIONS PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A STATISTICAL DESIGN TOOL FOR PROCESS/DEVICE AND CIRCUIT DESIGN IMPROVEMENT. BOTH PROCESS AND CIRCUIT DESIGNERS HAVE DIFFICULTY QUANTIFYING THE EFFECT OF PROCESS VARIABILITY UPON A CIRCUIT'S PARAMETRIC YIELD. EXISTING METHODS RELY ON EMPIRICAL OR QUALITATIVE METHODS THAT EITHER PRECLUDE CONCURRENT ENGINEERING OR ARE NOT BASED UPON THE PROCESS PHYSICS. EXISTING TCA ...

  9. APPLICATION OF LOCALIZED VIBRATION AND SMART MATERIALS IN CONTROLLING THE DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF STRUCTURES

    SBC: QRDC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE TREATMENT OF THE DYNAMIC PROBLEMS OF STRUCTURES, TWO ALTERNATE TESTING METHODS, BASED ON EXTERNAL AND EMBEDDED SENSORS, EXIST IN THE LITERATURE. IF THE SENSORS RESPOND TO THE CHANGES IN THE DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STRUCTURE, AND/OR THE ENVIRONMENT, THEN THEY ARE REFERRED TO "SMART" STRUCTURES. SMART SENSORS AND SMART MATERIALS HAVE BEEN USED FOR DETECTING STRUCTURAL DAMAGES AND/OR CO ...

  10. Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: IRIMSENS, LLC            Topic: SB062015

    Development of new short-wave infrared imaging sensors with signal processing electronics on the same substrate is critical for a number of military and commercial applications. The objective of this research is to develop a new generation of Ge-on-Si p-n heterojunction photodiodes that will culminate in a demonstration of a 64 x 64-pixel infrared imaging array. These photodiodes, whose feas ...
