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

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: 9010368R

    Scalable manufacturing of micro-engineered MRI contrast agents has the potential to increase the specificity and resolution of imaging techniques, while reducing morbidity. Currently, techniques used for making such particles are expensive and labor intensive. In Phase I, Weinberg Medical Physics will validate techniques for rapid, massively parallel fabrication of microscale contrast agents (incl ...

  2. High Performance Beam Scanning Using a Resonant Scan Lens

    SBC: XSB INC.            Topic: 9050140TT

    The objective of this project is to demonstrate a resonant scan lens (RSL) that increases the uniformity of beam scans projected from resonant optomechanical systems. While resonant optomechanical systems generate high-speed beam scans, large mechanical displacements, and robust operation from miniature form factors, scans projected from such systems lack uniformity across the field-of-view (FOV). ...

  3. Visual Ontological Language for Technical Standards (VOLTS)

    SBC: Aztera, LLC            Topic: 9010273R

    Current research shows that failures in the standardization process are often the result of a failure of the participants to communicate or organize. To this effect, NIST has developed a tool, NIST Ontological Visualization Interface for Standards (NOVIS), with an environment for visualizing, browsing, and querying standards. Aztera will create a Computer Aided Standards Development (CASD) framewo ...

  4. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: 843WP

    Phase II of the New METSAT Display project will produce a working beta version of the Earth Imaging product customized for NWS/NOAA as outlined in the Phase I proof of concept. This product will ingest imagery from a data source (in this case a web service of NOAA satellite imagery) and display it accurately on a globe of the Earth. Vector data such as roads, cities, towns, counties, states, etc. ...

  5. Multiple Hit Performance of Small Arms Protective Armor

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: A14AT017

    ENIG, in collaboration with SRI, proposes to develop a modeling methodology with predictive and inferential capabilities to address the challenges of designing body armor to resist realistic multiple impacts from burst fire events. Our toolkit will provide an end-to-end modeling capability, grounded in the statistics of realistic impacts from small-arms fire, which would address the final material ...

  6. Industrial Production Methods for Ultra-High-Strength Fibers based on Double-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A12AT026

    This project will complete development of a viable, cost-effective industrial production technique for producing ultrastrong, flexible and tough carbon fibers composed of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) and of a small amount of a polymer, based on a continuous manufacturing process. This will be done by refining MERs innovative technology for the efficient continuous production of unique fo ...

  7. Determination of Terrain Ponding for Logistics Emplacement and Planning

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: A13019

    Terrain and weather profoundly impact military operations especially in austere environments. The ability of tactical logisticians to properly prepare for the effects of terrain and weather offers greater responsiveness and survivability. Technology Service Corp (TSC) and its Colorado State University (CSU) partner propose a flexible terrain and weather impact analysis software tool to support ag ...

  8. Social Cognitive Advancement for the Tactical Edge (SCATE)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A15046

    Network protocols, such as link state routing and its variants, used in tactical mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) face serious problems of robustness and efficiency since the topological information becomes easily stale with fast network dynamics. Consequently, the emerging need to collect and exchange excessive network information increases the overhead and degrades the network performance. Social ...

  9. Canard Actuation System Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (CASMO)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A14083

    The U.S. Army PEO Ammunition has the mission to develop and procure leap-ahead munitions, improvised explosive device (IED)-defeat products and towed artillery systems to increase combat power to service members. The Army is constantly striving towards improved weapon effectiveness with minimum collateral damage, with constraints on costs. Embedded canard actuation systems are one of the most cost ...

  10. KRSE

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A15048

    KRSE provides the capability to aid site exploitation both in real-time and post-mission. User position is tracked in real-time, with the results shown to soldiers. During a mission in a complex environment, it can be difficult to know areas that have and have not been searched without using markers of some sort. The geolocation sensors provide a new tool to help ensure the site is fully searched ...
