  3. 3-D Materials Characterization Using Structured Illumination in the SEM

    SBC: Advanced Microscopy Techniques            Topic: N/A

    Microscopic measurement of surface topography is a continuing need in microfabrication technology and materials research. The aim of this research is to adapt the scanning electron microscope (SEM) to the quantitative measurement of a wide range of surface structures. The SEM is a widely used measurement tool in materials science and semiconductor fabrication. The SEM's strength is that it prov ...

  4. A Smart IR Fire Detection System

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Smart IR technology has advanced at a rapid pace over the last two decades, pushed along by primarily defense-related requirements. This includes such breakthroughs as Acousto-Optic Tunable Filters and microbolometer detector arrays. Coupled with the continuing growth in microprocessor power, this promises to make a new generation of fast, cheap and reliable infrared (IR) fire detectors possible ...

  5. Electromagnetic Detection of Tornadoes

    SBC: Airborne Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate objective of this project is to develop an instrument capable of remote detection and location of tornadoes and/or storms containing tornadoes. There are many reports, both scientific and anecdotal, suggesting that tornadoes and tornadic thunderstorms emit anomalous electromagnetic (EM) radiation-both RF and luminous. This radiation is characterized by unusually high rates of EM pulse ...

  6. Wavelet Image Compression Workbench

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Digital imagery is an increasingly prevalent in the computerized workplace; however, the increasing volume of this data is stressing storage and communications systems. One of the most competitive solutions to these stresses is wavelet-based data compression. A wide variety of wavelet image compression methods exists, and given an application, there is a need to compare different methods before ...

  7. Advanced Absolute Radiometers Using Superconducting Transition Thermometers

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE RESEARCH AND INSTRUMENTATION            Topic: N/A

    In our Phase 1 work we were able to replicate and build on recent results at NIST with superconducting transition (SCT) thermometers, which suggested that dramatic improvements may be achieved in detectivity and range of application, of cryogenic electrical substitution radiometers. Cryo-ESR's are widely used as the most accurate absolute standards of radiative flux and irradiance. In Phase 2, we ...

  8. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  9. Low-cost Lidar for Detection of Tuna Schools

    SBC: Detection Limit, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this work is to build the first feasible aircraft lidar system for pelagic fish detection, identification, and abundance quantification. Feasibility in a lidar system infers a system that is low-cost, small and lightweight with rugged construction, has low power consumption, minimal maintenance, a powerful user interface, along with a design that optimizes search and identification ...
