  1. Developing Commercial Quantum Resistance Standard Based on Epitaxial Graphene

    SBC: Graphene Waves, LLC            Topic: None

    Graphene Waves proposes to develop a quantum Hall resistance (QHR) standard based on graphene that can be deployed for general electrical calibration in industries. Current QHR standard is based on GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure and requires expensive liquid helium to operate. The continuous increase in price and unstable supply chain of liquid helium limit the QHR standard to be only affordable by t ...

  2. TheSieve

    SBC: Cyber Point International, LLC            Topic: None

    CyberPoint International presents the design of a cross platform product for the autonomous execution of live forensic investigations of Personal Computers, Laptops and Servers leveraging the NIST NSRL corpus and a combination of at least 3 forms of machine learning/artificial intelligent algorithms for the processing of preliminary digital evidence titled TheSieve. We build upon work from our pha ...

  3. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: None

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface for the Universal Robot E-Series that allows an user to label arbitrary 3 ...

  4. Laser Particle Separation

    SBC: Opthos Instrument Company, LLC            Topic: None

    Parman Tech is dedicated to commercializing a NIST technology for sorting nano-particles. This technology uses the force of light to gently guide particles along different paths depending on the size of makeup of each particle.

  5. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  6. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and lack generalizability from one location (or season) to the next, making them impractical for implementation. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to improve and validate a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) ...

  7. Small Satellite Cloud Observation System

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 9601

    We propose the design of an optical instrument package capable of making cloud observations and deployable on a CubeSat. The design will be based on decades of research in cloud remote sensing and each spectral channel will be comprised of a commercial-off-the-shelf camera and a spectral filter as needed. The base design will be comprised of three channels, two in the shortwave infrared and one in ...

  8. Enabling BLOS UAS Operations through a Diverse-Source Global Positioning System

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 9501

    Enabling BLOS operations in the National Airspace System is largely an issue of improved sensing. Under the UTM rules, BLOS operations require performance authorization from the FAA centered around navigation, communications, sharing of intent, avoiding other aircraft, and connecting to the FAA in near real-time. The current plan initially is for these performance metrics to be evaluated by the F ...

  9. An Innovative Approach to Seafloor Classification: Applying Advanced Unsupervised Machine Learning in Complex and Variable Bottom Types with Multispectral Satellite Imagery

    SBC: TCarta Marine LLC            Topic: 9603

    Machine learning and unsupervised classification have been applied to seafloor classification and benthic mapping using multibeam echosounders (MBES), Light Ranging and Detection (LiDAR), airborne hyperspectral, underwater optical cameras, and satellite imagery. Regardless of the sensor, data dimensionality reduction is an integral processing step of seabed mapping workflows. The most commonly imp ...

  10. A Low-Cost Atmospheric Aerosol Monitoring System for Boundary Layer Air Quality, Visibility, Cloud Ceiling Height and Aerosol Properties

    SBC: BJE Environmental Optics LLC            Topic: 9601

    This proposal addresses subtopic 9.6.01, Low-cost Oceanic and Atmospheric Sensors and Observing Systems. It is proposed that two instruments for measuring atmospheric aerosols be commercialized to operate automatically and routinely. Both instruments have been used in research settings for many years and share several aspects of technology. They could both be commercialized with significant advant ...
