Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc. Topic: 943W
Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...SBIR Phase I 2013 Department of CommerceNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC. Topic: DLA08001
Significant advances have been made in machining technology, most notably machining centers capable of spindle speeds and feedrates that are an order of magnitude higher than conventional. However, the use of this new technology requires much more technical expertise, and experience and intuition are no longer sufficient. Specifically, machine tool productivity can be greatly enhanced if informati ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseDefense Logistics Agency
RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS.SBC: Tribo Materials Dev. Corp. Topic: N/A
RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION IN WEAR CAN BE ACHIEVED THROUGH LUBRICATION, ALTHOUGH THE LUBRICATORS THEMSELVES ARE A MAINTENANCE PROBLEM. IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP AN ANTI-WEAR COATING WHICH CAN BE APPLIED PERIODICALLY TO RAILS TO REDUCE WEAR AND TO ...SBIR Phase I 1984 Department of Transportation
