  1. 3-D Digital Image Correlation Based Non-Destructive Testing System for Qualification of Additive Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: NA

    NIST's seeks a high resolution DIC technology for qualification of complex AM parts. To meet this critical need, X-wave Innovations Inc. proposes to develop a 3-Dimentional Digital Image Correlation (3-D DIC) based NDT system. The proposed effort builds upon the success of XII in developing a variety of NDT technologies (including DIC system) for advanced materials evaluation. The success of the p ...

  2. High Temperature High Resolution in-situ Differential Pressure Sensor

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: NA

    Chemical manufacturers require high accuracy/high sensitivity pressure sensors to efficiently monitor the various manufacturing systems and processes in the chemical plant, to ensure any changes proceed in a safe and reliable manner, adhering to expected standards and practices. NIST also has a need for highly accurate pressure measurements, especially determining the thermo-physical properties of ...

  3. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: 832

    The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the gas engine gives long ...

  4. Development of a PC-Based Ship Maneuvering Simulator for Improving Navigation Traffic Within Ports and Harbors

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 8410

    The potential for accidents in harbors increases with traffic density. Collisions with other ships or natural obstacles are caused by incorrect controls manipulation by the master in response to some unexpected situation, especially when in a new environment. Continual training for various critical situations on simulators that include realistic topography and the presence of other maneuvering ve ...

  5. Full Spectrum Complete IOP Instrument Suite

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An ultimate goal of ocean-observing and ocean-color remote sensing programs is to determine the nature and concentrations of ocean-water constituents and, combined with models, infer the biological and physical processes occurring. To effectively achieve this goal, it is absolutely necessary to obtain direct measurements of the fundamental (i.e., inherent) optical absorption and scattering proper ...

  6. Operational Ocean Instrumentation, Measurements, and Data/Information Dissemination Systems: Digital Camera Visibility Sensor

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 821

    Visibility is a crucial safety issue in all transportation fields, and current technology is inadequate for measuring visibility for a number of reasons including (but not limited to) limited area coverage, overgeneral categorization of visibility conditions, expense, need for direct operation and calibration, and lack of ruggedness. Having demonstrated the practicality of its video-based visibili ...

  7. Selective Speaker Interface to Support Smart Space Accessible Computing

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

    The Smart Flow system developed by NIST provides a platform to develop standards that promote the interoperability of devices produced by different manufacturers. The NIST system can acquire and process multiple sensor data such as voice and image in real-time. Many applications such as speaker verification, head trackers, etc. can be implemented under the framework. In Phase 1, we have demonstrat ...

  8. Water Properties Sensor

    SBC: Kaitech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project is to provide an affordable, easy-to-use, hyperspectral water properties measuring instrument that is designed for universal marine use. It is an instrument that combines, in a single package, capabilities to accurately measure the apparent, inherent, fluorescent and the CTD properties of water. The sensor captures a complete record of all of the water¿s properties in a single cast ...

  9. Vacuum Windows for Third Generation Syschrotron Radiation Beamlines

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Improving the quality and intensity of the x-ray beam is an important design goal for every synchrotron installation. Although small, the effects of vacuum windows on x-ray absorption and phase contrast cannot be neglected. Synchrotron x-rays have wavelengths on the order of one Angstrom (1 x 10-10m), the same order of magnitude as inter-atomic distances. These x-rays are used to study many differ ...

  10. Systematic Study of the Growth and Processing of ZnTe and GaP Crytals for THz Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    Terahertz radiation is an ideal candidate for non-invasive interrogation of concealed objects and substances. As such, there is an increased need for reliable high-quality nonlinear materials for the generation and detection of THz radiation. Zinc telluride (ZnTe) and gallium phosphide (GaP) are the materials of choice for this purpose. However, the performance of these materials varies widely fro ...
