  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. Optimized CO2 Gas Sensor for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 822R

    The objective of the proposed work is to create low cost, low power sensors for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. In our Phase I effort, we showed that Dioxide Materials’ miniature CO2 sensors have the speed and sensitivity to meet NOAA’s requirements for sensing ocean carbon. The objective of the proposed work is to further develop the sensors so that they can be used directly in NOAA ...

  5. 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. ...

  6. Lightweight Approach to System Protection

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA14006

    In this proposed effort, we will develop a field programmable gate array (FPGA) protection tool, called OmniShield. OmniShield is a combined software and hardware solution, which can automatically integrate the original design with our protection modules. Moreover, users can configure the protection modules according to hardware constraints and security requirements. The proposed techniques in ...

  7. Development of High Performance Computing (HPC) Technology for a Distributed Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Hardware Infrastructure

    SBC: Syncopated Engineering, Inc.            Topic: MDA14012

    This research effort will develop a heterogeneous, high-performance computing platform for distributed modeling and simulation applications capable of providing flexible configurations of CPU, GPU and FPGA resources that use a simple, common and open programming model (OpenCL). The use of OpenCL enables functionally equivalent algorithms to be deployed across CPU, GPU and FPGA resources. Deploym ...

  8. BMDS Aggregate Semantic Store (BASS)

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: MDA14010

    Legacy database systems often exhibit the feature of being stove piped and difficult to integrate over time. This is because they were often developed for ad hoc purposes for specific groups, thus their data models and inherent structure is not always well understood except by a select few people who designed and built the database. This means data retrieval using these legacy systems is a chall ...

  9. Failure Avoidance in Microelectronics Due to Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) Mismatch of Substrates and Adhesives

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA14T002

    The reliability of electronic packages is of paramount concern in todays electronics industry, and ensuring their thermomechanical integrity is necessary to achieve this reliability. However, this task has become more challenging with miniaturization and the introduction of new materials. Thermal stresses in electronic packages continue to be one of the leading causes of device failure. The pro ...

  10. Advanced Electroanalytical Methods for Failure Mode Analysis and Screening of Base Metal Capacitors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T003

    Over 95% of the multilayer ceramic capacitors manufactured worldwide use base metal electrode (BME) technology and they are one of the key components in much of the modern electronics. BME capacitors have, over the last 20 years, made significant improvements in performance and reliability; making them more competitive for a wide range of applications. However, there remains significant concerns ...
