  1. An Automated Lapping Apparatus and Process for High-Precision Random Profile Roughness Specimen Fabrication

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 9020268TT

    The measurement and quality control for smooth engineering surfaces are becoming more and more important in modern science and technology due to their important engineering functions and high production costs. NIST has frequently received requests from U.S. industry to provide Standard Reference Material (SRM) high-precision, random profile roughness specimens to support smooth surface measurement ...

  2. High-Sensitivity, Low-Cost, Surface-Acoustic-Wave Based Microscale Thermogravimetric Analyzer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To meet NIST’s need for development of a new electronic system for microscale thermogravimeter nanoparticle analysis, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) proposes a high-sensitivity, high-accuracy, low-cost, surface-acoustic-wave based microscale thermogravimetric analyzer (SAW-µ-TGA). The proposed approach is based on XII-developed surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensor technology, which is capable of ...

  3. Climate Impact Visualization Tools Using Virtual 3D City for Community Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 931RC

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes an innovative visualization tool that transforms online GIS mappers into a climate impact assessment and planning tool that allows planners to visualize the impact of storm surges with sea level rise and coastal erosion using a 3D virtual city. The goal is to assist planners and emergency services to adapt to climate change at three tiers: i) Tier 3 (Long-te ...

  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 ...
