  1. Low-Noise, High-Efficiency Geiger Photodiode for Quantum Cryptography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mechanics of single photons can be used to entangle information carry quantum states, allowing for quantum computation or random number generation. Quantum communication utilizes the quantum nature of single-photons to retain information, particularly in the form of quantum key distribution protocols. High-efficiency, low-noise single photon detection at high efficiency is critical for the app ...

  2. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  3. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  4. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: 84

    NOAA has identified a problem with the display and usability of satellite imagery on NWS websites. This proposal provides analysis of the feasibility and usability of a proposed system to address this concern. Our goal in the project is to create a heuristically sound conceptual design and tool set for display and interaction with satellite imagery on the NWS site. The project will also explore ...

  5. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 91

    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  6. Climate Impact Visualization Tools using 3D City for Community-Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 93

    To build a climate-smart and resilient nation, we need to foster a climate-literate public that understands its vulnerabilities to a changing climate and makes informed decisions. A core component of this challenge is to develop simple, intuitive and high-impact visualizations of climate data--data that is and will be made available through the President’s Climate Data Initiative--for education ...

  7. NEURAL NETWORK APPLICATIONS FOR CLOUD-TRACK WIND DETERMINATION

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO APPLY ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS TO THE DERIVATION OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS FROM SATELLITE IMAGERY. IN PHASE I, WE WILL CONCENTRATE ON USING A NEURAL NETWORK IN THE FIRST STEP IN THE DERIVATIO OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS, THE HEIGHT ASSIGNMENT AND TARGET SELECTION. THE NEURAL NETWORK COMBINES, AT EACH IMAGE PIXEL, BRIGHTNESS IN DIFFERENT CHANNELS TO DETERMINE CLOUD TYPE AND LEVEL (I.E., L ...

  9. PARALLEL METHODS FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL DEVELOP WAVELET-BASED DOMAIN DECOMPOSITION PROCEDURES FOR THE SOLUTION OF THE INITIAL VALUE PROBLEM FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION ON MULTIDIMENSIONAL SPATIAL DOMAINS. ACCURATE AND PRACTICAL NUMERICAL CALCULATIONS WOULD BE OF GREAT USE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EXTENSION OF THE BORN-OPPENHEIMER PROCEDURE. BEING BOTH COMPACTLY SUPPORTED AND ORTHOGONAL, WAVELETS COMBINE THE ADVANTAGES OF FINI ...

  10. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW COST MANUFACTURING PROCESS FOR PRODUCTION OF HIGH QUALITY TITANIUM SURGICAL IMPLANT COMPONENTS

    SBC: DYNAMET TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCES IN TITANIUM ALLOY POWDER METALLURGY (P/M), UTILIZING HIGH PURITY STARTING POWDERS, HAVE RESULTED IN STATIC AND DYNAMIC MECHANICAL PROPERTIES COMPARABLE TO WROUGHT TITANIUM ALLOYS. THE DEVELOPMENTS OVERCOME EARLIER LIMITATIONS IN FATIGUE RESISTANCE WHICH RESTRICTED P/M TITANIUM USAGE FROM THE DEMANDING REQUIREMENTS OF SURGICAL IMPLANTS. DUE TO THE INHERENT ECONOMIES OF P/M PROCESSES, P/M T ...
