  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  6. Ground Level Assimilative Model (GLAM) of Geomagnetic Field Disturbance Conditions

    SBC: Metatech APS Division            Topic: N/A

    Geomagnetic disturbances have caused wide spread disruptions to power grids throughout North America. It is necessary to fully describe the complex physical manifestation of geomagnetic disturbance environments to model how and to what extent these disturbances impact modern ground-based critical infrastructures. The Ground Level Assimilative Model (GLAM) would provide the general public and ope ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. High Throughput Development of Low-Resistance Contact to p-type GaN by Combinatorial Screening of Surface Dopants

    SBC: Intematix Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Group III-nitrides with their wide bandgap properties are one of most promising materials not only in opto-electronics but also in high power and high temperature electronics. A critical issue in device applications of the nitride materials is the metal ohmic contact, which seriously limits the performance and efficiency of nitride-based devices. Finding suitable low-resistance Ohmic contacts for ...

  9. Monitor for Risk of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Sekos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The focus of this SBIR submission is to develop a system to monitor fire-induced structural vibrations that provide real time data correlating with structural integrity. The system is designed to bridge an "information void" that would provide firefighters with information that can warn of impending collapse. The system, based on accelerometer technology, will monitor structural integrity through ...
