  1. The X-3D Array: An Affordable Three Dimensional, High Speed, Towed Hydrophone Array

    SBC: BIOWAVES, INC.            Topic: 82

    We proposed to test, design, and modify an existing ‘X-Array’ tetrahedral (3-D) hydrophone array prototype and design with the ultimate goal of developing a production prototype called the ‘X-3D Array’. We will analyze field data collected previously from the first prototype, conduct hydrodynamic modeling of the array design, and research possible torque imbalances in the tow-cable, and us ...

  6. 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). ...

  9. 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 ...
