  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 ...

  3. A SENSITIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGING DETECTOR FOR COLD NEUTRONS

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL PHOTOSTIMULABLE PHOSPHOR IMAGING TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED TO REPLACE BULKY COUNTING SYSTEMS CURRENTLY USED IN NEUTRON DIFFRACTION AND SCATTERING INVESTIGATIONS. THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE PROPOSED DETECTOR CAN BE VARIED TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO MOVE THE DETECTION SYSTEM CLOSER TO THE SCATTERING SAMPLE, THEREBY INCREASING THE NEUTRONS AVAILABLE FOR DETECTION AND SHRINKING THE SIZE OF THE EXPERIME ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Ultrasonic Inspection for Neck/Shoulder Cracks in Aluminum Gas Cylinders

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    Recent catastrophic failures of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) aluminum gas cylinders and similar air tanks have generated the need for a highly reliable, low cost inspection method to insure the integrity of these tanks. The failures of these tanks have been the result of crack formation in the neck and shoulder area. The cracks originate from the interior wall and can re ...

  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 ...
