  1. Nanometer Precision Absolute Linear Interferometer

    SBC: AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.            Topic: 090101

    The goal of this Phase I project is to develop an affordable, accurate, and rapid absolute interferometric length measurement technique with improved repeatability and accuracy. API has a patent-pending technology, Frequency-Modulated Time-to-Frequency Mapping Interferometer (FM-TFMI), that is an absolute interferometer capable of measuring at high speed and with exceptionally high accuracy. The T ...

  2. High-Throughput Low-Cost Manufacturing of Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: 90103

    New shape-engineered iron-based microscopic contrast agents (MCAs) for magnetic resonance imaging promise to increase diagnostic accuracy while reducing side effects, and enhance scientists’ ability to track stem cells. Currently, techniques used for making multispectral microscale contrast agent particles are cost prohibitive. In Phase I, an innovative technique (employing template-guided elect ...

  3. Resonant Scan Lens for Scanning Beam LIDAR

    SBC: z-senz LLC            Topic: 90501

    The objective of this Phase II project is to research, develop, and commercialize a resonant scan lens (RSL) for use in a resonant light detection and ranging (R-LIDAR) distance sensor. R-LIDAR uses a resonant optomechanical system to generate a beam scan. While resonant optomechanical systems produce high-speed and large field-of-view (FOV) scans from a miniature form factor, the beam scans lack ...

  4. A Computational Tool for Simulating Hydrodynamic Behavior of Multiple Vessels in a Harbor

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N/A

    The hydrodynamic characteristics of a vessel are affected in restricted waters by the proximity of nearby moving or moored vessels. Interactions can result in large motions, potential collisions and significant loads on nearby structures, banks, and sediments. In Phase 1, we developed and demonstrated feasibility of a PC-Based numerical code for the prediction of the hydrodynamics of multiple vess ...

  6. Development of a PC-Based Multi-Ship Maneuvering Simulator for Improving Navigation Traffic Within Ports and Harbors

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N/A

    The potential for accidents in harbors increases with traffic density. Collisions with other ships or natural obstacles are caused by reduced reaction time in an unexpected situation. We propose to develop a PCWindows based ship simulator, which will be able to simulate multi-ship dynamics in restricted water, in the presence of waves, wind, currents, and obstacles. General topography, channel con ...

  7. Multiresolution Raster Chart Image Digitization and Compression

    SBC: GMA INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research focuses on achieving significant gains in the ability to compress the information contained within raster images of nautical charts in such a manner that aids the characterization and acquisition of metadata pertaining to individual chart features. Present NOAA electronic nautical charts, which consist of raster images that are inherently difficult to compress without loss of ...

  9. Raster to Vector GIS Chart Conversion Through Lossless Compression

    SBC: GMA INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort utilizes the by-product of an existing lossless compression process for digitized raster GIS charts as the basis for vector conversion. This process uses mutiple resolutions of the raster image to recognize and extract text, symbol, contour, and color data while preserving the original chart features. These data are stored as objects in an electronic database optimized for data ...

  10. A Real-time Demonstration of the Smart Flow System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to further the development of NIST's Smart Space technology and demonstrate that the integrated system facilitates the interaction of persons with limited abilities in a meeting room environment. Such a demonstration will serve to simulate interest in applying Smart Space technology in real world interaction. Two individuals enter the meeting room laptop ...
