  1. Multiresolution Raster Chart Image Digitization and Compression

    SBC: GMA INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research focuses on achieving significant gains in the ability to compress the information contained within raster images of nautical charts in such a manner that aids the characterization and acquisition of metadata pertaining to individual chart features. Present NOAA electronic nautical charts, which consist of raster images that are inherently difficult to compress without loss of ...

  2. Observing Station Metadata System

    SBC: MAYUR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    Mayur Tech demonstrated a prototype web based system for submitting and storing observational station metadata for NOAA NWS programs during phase 1. We propose to develop this prototype into a complete metadata operational system leading to the development of commercial tools in phase 2. Mayur Tech plans to enhance the current CSSA metadata system, and add new functionality to NWS and FAA sites. T ...

  3. SCAP Content Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NIST and G2 have been on the forefront of security automation with the development of the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). However, the barrier to entry for SCAP content creation is the requirement to have in depth knowledge of the underlying specifications. This project aims to allow security experts to create SCAP content without the need to be an expert in the specification. By leve ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Diode Laser Multigas Analyzer for Advanced Detection of Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences will develop a novel fire detection technology based on optical spectroscopy, using diode lasers and fiber optics. Rapid, quantitative detection of part per million concentrations (or better) of multiple gases, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride, and a fiber optical distribution network permits one laser to be used for at least 800 di ...

  7. DIODE LASER ABSOLUTE MOISTURE SENSOR

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOUTHWEST SCIENCES PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIODE LASER-BASED MOISTURE SENSOR. THE INSTRUMENT DYNAMIC RANGE WILL SPAN WATER VAPOR MIXING RATIOS OF 100 PPM TO BETTER THAN 10 PPB. THE PLANNED INSTRUMENT DETECTS ABSOLUTE WATER VAPOR CONCENTRATIONS USING OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPY WITH A CUSTOM-FABRICATED INGAASP DIODE LASER OPERATING AT 1393 NM. OPTICAL ABSORBANCE MEASUREMENTS ARE MADE USING HIGH FREQ ...

  8. Long-Range Communications for the Aerosonde Autonomous Sounding Aircraft

    SBC: The Insitu Group            Topic: N/A

    In 1995, we started field trials of miniature autonomous aircraft, an aerosonde, for long-range weather reconnaissance. With a maximum weight of only 12 kg, and a wingspan of 3 m, it has about 1500 km range and 24 hours endurance. This early version leaves much room for improvement, and we expect to double range and endurance by mid-1997. Still another doubling ultimately should be feasible, to ...

  9. Autonomous Agents for Distributed Problem Solving, Planning and Control

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Automation, Incorporated is developing a new innovative approach to concurrent product-process development. The resulting system will also allow integrated development of production planning and scheduling, including external supplier integration. Our approach is based on the paradigm of autonomous agents. The work herein proposed focuses on improvements and extensions to the "Intel ...

  10. An Automated Lapping Apparatus and Process for High- Process for High-Precision Random Profile Roughness Specimen Fabrication

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The measurement and quality control for smooth engineering surfaces are becoming more and more important in modern science and technology due to their important engineering functions and high production costs. NIST has frequently received requests for U.S. industry to provide Standard Reference Material (SRM) high-precision, random profile roughness specimens to support smooth surface measurements ...
