  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Innovative High Throughput Automated System for Individualized Poultry Vaccination and Recognition and Removal of Unhealthy Chicks

    SBC: Applied LifeSciences & Systems Poultry, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project has the potential to help enhance disease resistance in poultry and increase yields due to the delivery of only healthy, fully vaccinated chicks to farms. These healthier chicks will reduce the need for antibiotics in poultry, aiding to combat antimicrobial resistance. This technology has imm ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Impact Bonding of Near Net-Shaped Ceramics to Metals Driven by Hydrogen Produced from Rapid Oxidation of Aluminum

    SBC: Advanced Hydrogen Technologies Corporation            Topic: MN

    This SBIR Phase II project will create an industrial process for bonding ceramics to metals at the molecular level. Attempts thus far have not been successful in creating robust bonds due to incongruities of the materials being bonded. The objective of this project is to develop a sophisticated, computer controlled, automated bonding machine that will rapidly and safely impact-bond net-shaped cera ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Assessment of Manufacturing and Fatigue Damage Effects in Titanium Alloys Using Induced Positron Annihilation

    SBC: POSITRON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research project will develop a prototype Induced Positron Manufacturing Damage System (IPMDS) to be used to assess initial component quality, and manufacturing damage effects for Ti-6Al-4V and IN738 components. The IPMDS is based on the Induced Positron Annihilation technologies whose capabilities to assess alpha inclusion and fatigue damage ...

  10. 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 ...
