  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. 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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Reuse Support Tools for Automated Constructino of Software Systems

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reuse in software engineering is an exciting concept that has yet to be reliably implemented. The number of program subroutines that are truly generic (and therefore applicable across all applications) is limited. However, there are specific applications that are required by many organizations, albeit with a set of constraints specific to each organization. This project proposes to design a too ...

  7. Airborne Imaging LIDAR for Biomass Estimation

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for accurate and cost effective airborne techniques to estimate fish biomass in the open ocean. Arete proposes to develop in Phase I optimal detection algorithms using existing imaging LIDAR data collected with the Fisheye(R) sensor. These algorithms will be developed to allow real-time detection of fish and fish schools, discrimination between fish and ambient clutter, and discr ...

  8. DIALOG- A Tool for Team Interactive Organizational Learning in the Healthcare Industry

    SBC: Cities, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop DIALOG, an environment for collaborative decision making that will enable health care providers and administrators to model, learn, and reason about their business enterprise. DIALOG will utilize a user-friendly, pen- and gesture-based graphical interface, and will enable "any time/any place" collaboration over shared digital libraries and dynamic "microworld" simulations. ...

  9. Gulliver Miniature Guarded Hot Plate Apparatus

    SBC: Drf R&d, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a miniature guarded hot plate apparatus that can be used to determine the thermal conductivity or thermal resistance of very small specimens (1 to 3 cm square) of thermal insulation materials over a temperature range from at least -40 degrees Celsius to +65 degrees Celsius, with the apparatus having the capability to carry out measurements under controlled environments of ...

  10. Development of a Commercially Viable Equivalence Ratio Meter

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A combustion environment can be described by a characteristic fuel-to-air ratio normalized by the stoichiometric fuel-to-air ratio, otherwise defined as an equivalence ratio, _. The equivalence ratio is used extensively in a wide range of combustion fields from fundamental flame studies, to full-scale fire testing, to power plant operations. There have been basically two methods for calculating ...
