  1. High-Throughput Low-Cost Manufacturing of Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: 9010368R

    Scalable manufacturing of micro-engineered MRI contrast agents has the potential to increase the specificity and resolution of imaging techniques, while reducing morbidity. Currently, techniques used for making such particles are expensive and labor intensive. In Phase I, Weinberg Medical Physics will validate techniques for rapid, massively parallel fabrication of microscale contrast agents (incl ...

  2. High Performance Beam Scanning Using a Resonant Scan Lens

    SBC: XSB INC.            Topic: 9050140TT

    The objective of this project is to demonstrate a resonant scan lens (RSL) that increases the uniformity of beam scans projected from resonant optomechanical systems. While resonant optomechanical systems generate high-speed beam scans, large mechanical displacements, and robust operation from miniature form factors, scans projected from such systems lack uniformity across the field-of-view (FOV). ...

  3. Cognitive Residential Heat Pumps Fault Detection and Diagnostic Datalogger

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 9010173R

    During Phase I, Management Sciences, Inc. (MSI) proved feasibility of adapting their current technology into a product capable of improving performance resulting in increased efficiency and extended life cycles of heat pumps. The resultant product is a tool named the Heat Pump Sentient (HP-Sentient). The HP-Sentient will improve performance and reduce maintenance costs through aggressive goal-seek ...

  4. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: 843WP

    Phase II of the New METSAT Display project will produce a working beta version of the Earth Imaging product customized for NWS/NOAA as outlined in the Phase I proof of concept. This product will ingest imagery from a data source (in this case a web service of NOAA satellite imagery) and display it accurately on a globe of the Earth. Vector data such as roads, cities, towns, counties, states, etc. ...

  5. Commercial Verde

    SBC: Fernandez, Steven            Topic: 851

    Public and commercial application of NOAA developed products such as climate observations, weather products, and datasets are underutilized by public decision makers, infrastructure asset owners, or the public. Communities realize the risk posed by increases in storm intensity, flooding, and heat waves. However, communities lack understandable models targets to stakeholder questions that are affor ...

  6. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  7. Portable high precision nitrogen gas analyzer for eddy covariance flux measurements

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 861X

    Recent theoretical studies of eddy flux correlation have suggested that the commonly used assumption of dry air having no net flux is erroneous and can lead to significant errors in reported observations. Presently, dry air density is calculated indirectly from measured temperature, pressure and relative humidity, all of which contribute to increased uncertainties in the result. If instead the den ...

  8. A Computational Tool for Simulating Hydrodynamic Behavior of Multiple Vessels in a Harbor

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N/A

    The hydrodynamic characteristics of a vessel are affected in restricted waters by the proximity of nearby moving or moored vessels. Interactions can result in large motions, potential collisions and significant loads on nearby structures, banks, and sediments. In Phase 1, we developed and demonstrated feasibility of a PC-Based numerical code for the prediction of the hydrodynamics of multiple vess ...

  10. Development of a PC-Based Multi-Ship Maneuvering Simulator for Improving Navigation Traffic Within Ports and Harbors

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N/A

    The potential for accidents in harbors increases with traffic density. Collisions with other ships or natural obstacles are caused by reduced reaction time in an unexpected situation. We propose to develop a PCWindows based ship simulator, which will be able to simulate multi-ship dynamics in restricted water, in the presence of waves, wind, currents, and obstacles. General topography, channel con ...
