  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. THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A SIMPLE YET ACCURATE APPROACH TO MEASURING THE POSITION AND ORIENTATION OF A ROBOT.

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

    THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A SIMPLE YET ACCURATE APPROACH TO MEASURING THE POSITION AND ORIENTATION OF A ROBOT. THE MECHANISM CAN BE USED TO MAKE BOTH STATIC AND DYNAMIC MEASUREMENTS. TWO VERSIONS OF THE DESIGN ARE PROPOSED; THE FIRST VERSION HAVING HIGH ACCURACY OVER A SMALL WORK VOLUME,AND THE SECOND VERSION HAVING LOWER ACCURACY OVER A WORK VOLUME WHICH WOULD ALLOW POSE MEASUREMENT OVER THE ENTIRE ...

  5. NOAA WEATHER RADIO COVERAGE MAPPING SYSTEM

    SBC: MCCREARY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DISSEMINATION OF TIMELY WEATHER DATA IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT AS THE POPULATION DENSITY OF THE UNITED STATES INCREASES. AS THE SOLE GOVERNMENT OPERATED RADIO SYSTEM PROVIDING DIRECT WARNINGS TO PRIVATE HOMES, THENOAA WEATHER RADIO (NWR) SYSTEM IS CRITICAL FOR DISSEMINATING NATURAL DISASTER WARNINGS AND THE TIMELY DISSEMINATION OF WEATHER DATA. THE NEED FOR A LOW COST, REAL TIME COVER ...

  6. SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS OF HIGH CLOUDS IN THE TROPICS AND CLIMATE CHANGE

    SBC: Mentor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THREE ASPECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE INVOLVING VERY HIGH TROPICAL CLOUDS ARE: (1) WHETHER CHANGES IN HIGH CLOUD PARAMETERS LEAD TO POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK IN CO2 EFFECTS ON CLIMATIC TEMPERATURE CHANGES; (2) DO CHANGES IN THE HEIGHTS OF CLOUD TOPS AND CLOUD AMOUNT, OR CLOUDS WHICH REACH TO THE TROPICAL TROPOPAUSE, AFFECT THE AMOUNT OFWATER VAPOR IN THE LOWER STRATOSPHERE AND INDIRECTLY THE ANTARCT ...
