  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. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...
