  1. STUDY OF SHOCK WAVE PROPAGATION AND PHASED-ARRAY FOCUSING FOR LITHOTRIPSY

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL APPLY THEORETICAL METHODS BASED PRINCIPALLY ON CAGNIARD'S FORMALISM (PREVIOUSLY INCORPORATED BY US INTO OUR POWERFUL SWREF CODE), TO THE PROPAGATION AND FOCUSING, IN BOTH REFLECTIVE AND PHASED-ARRAY EQUIPMENT, OF SHOCK-WAVES PRODUCED BY UNDERWATER SPARKS. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO INVESTIGATE AND PROVIDE DESIGN DATA FOR LITHOTRIPSY EQUIPMENT IN WHICH FOCUSED SHOCK WAVES ARE USED ...

  2. THE SUSPENSION CORE DRILL

    SBC: Browning Engineering            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL ROCK CORE DRILLING AT GREAT DEPTHS IS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING. ITS MAJOR DRAWBACK IS THE REQUIRED LENGTH OF DRILL PIPE. THE SUSPENSION CORE DRILL IS SUPPORTED BY CONTINUOUS FLEXIBLE LEADS HELD ON ONE OR MORE HIGH-SPEED REELS. WITHDRAWALS AND REPLACEMENT TIMES CAN BE REDUCED BY AN ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE. COMMERCIAL USES INCLUDE STANDARD CORING APPLICATIONS AS WELL AS INTERMI ...

  3. ACTIVELY CONTROLLED GAS BEARINGS

    SBC: Burton Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT WILL BE CARRIED OUT TO PROVIDE PROTOTYPE, ACTIVELY CONTROLLED GAS BEARINGS FOR PRECISION MOVEMENT IN INSTRUMENTS AND MACHINE TOOLS. THIS WILL DRAW UPON PRELIMINARY WORK ON (1) FABRICATION, (2) DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF THE BEARING AND SUPPORTED MASS, (3) PIEZOELECTRIC VALVING AND PIEZOELECTRIC DISPLACEMENT OF THE BEARING SURFACE, AND (4) THE ADAPTATION OF A MICROPROCESSOR TO SER ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Device for In-ovo Targeting and Delivery to the Early Chicken Embryo

    SBC: Embrex            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project integrates the imaging system developed in Phase I with a smart-sensor injection system that can inject or sample from the cavity underlying the early chicken embryo with high levels of accuracy accompanied with improved hatch when compared to manual methods. The Phase I work showed that it was possible to image and detect the blasto ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Creating Functionally Decomposed Surface Models from Measured Data

    SBC: GEOMAGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project deals with the problems of reconstructing complex free-form shapes from measured data. Raindrop Magic's primary interest is to produce well-structured, high-quality CAD models. Several techniques exist to reach this goal; unfortunately, automatic surfacing systems provide only rough approximations and do not capture the original design int ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Applications of Morse Theory in Reverse Engineering

    SBC: GEOMAGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will investigate applications of Combinatorial Morse Theory in Reverse Engineering, a field that focuses on converting physical objects into a digital representation suitable for CAD, CAM, and CAE. The biggest challenge in this field is to automate the conversion process while producing a model that meets all the requirements of downs ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Three-Dimensional (3D) Laparoscope

    SBC: Inneroptic Technology Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to develop a fully functional prototype 3-D laparoscope, which will be superior to the 2-D laparoscopes currently used in surgeries, based on laser illuminated miniaturized projector for computer generated light patterns and two cameras for acquisition of color and depth. The commercial application of this project will be in surgi ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Novel Bioaerosol Concentrator/Sampler for Enhanced Biosensor Performance

    SBC: ITI            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a robust, generic, front-end, bio-sampler that when combined with either a wet or dry biological detector, will result in more accurate and rapid detection of hazardous airborne biological agents. While most current systems require samples to be delivered in a fluid for analysis, emerging dry detection technologi ...

  9. Development of a Submersible Fish Cage for Open Ocean Aquaculutre

    SBC: JPS Industries, Inc.            Topic: 831

    A need exists to develop cost effective and reliable submersible cage technology for exposed aquaculture. The team assembled as part of this SBIR incorporates JPS Industries, Great Bay Aquafarms and the University of New Hampshire. In Phase I, a design will be developed based on concepts known to work in the industry. Concepts to be investigated include a cage constructed around HDPE pipe, with ...

  10. DESIGN OF A HIGH SPEED, HIGH RESOLUTION SIDE SCAN SONAR SYS TEM

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    SIDE SCAN SONAR HAS DEVELOPED TO THE POINT WHERE IT IS NOW AN ACCEPTED PART OF HYDROGRAPHIC CHARTING PROJECTS, AS WELL AS A BROAD RANGE OF OCEAN SEARCH AND SURVEY APPLICATIONS. ONE LIMITATION ON ITS UTILITY, HOWEVER, IS THE REQUIREMENT TO OPERATE THE SYSTEM AT RELATIVELY LOW SPEEDS (5 KNOTS OR LOR LESS) IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE HIGH-QUALITY DATA. ANY INCREASEIN VESSEL SPEED CAPABILITY WOULD RESULT IN G ...
