  1. Low Noise, InGaAs Dual Photodiodes for Precise Timing

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conversion of highly stable optical clocks into electrical clocks through photodetection introduces excess phase noise, thereby degrading the frequency stability. This noise is primarily generated due to the conversion of optical intensity noise into electrical phase noise by photodiode┬┐s non-linearity, specifically power-to-phase conversion. During Phase I, Discovery developed dual photodiodes h ...

  2. Technology Transfer of Scanning Magnetic Field Imaging

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    High resolution magnetic mapping is a technique that has shown great value in the forensic evaluation of magnetic audio recording tapes. The use of single element raster scan systems has shown that the technique has promise in diagnosing many other systems where internal currents or magnetized inclusions generate external measurable fields. NIST has developed a 256 channel MR array sensor that ha ...

  3. First Steps in Transferring the Policy Machine Technology: Policy Machine Architecture and Functional Specification (PMAFS)

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

    IAI proposes to first develop the functional specification and architecture for the Policy Machine that can be deployed on a local machine as well as a networked platform such as LAN, web services, clouds etc. The policy machine at its core is a meta-data (attribute) based access control engine which utilized policy-based rules to allow or dis-allow use of resources. The attributes may belong to e ...

  4. Multi-posed Virtual Family Models

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

    A simulation platform to develop multi-posed models for micro-Doppler sensing is proposed. CAD model based human subject models, and hardware accelerated bio-electromagnetic modeling will be developed to understand EM interaction with human subject models. Since each organ is defined via a set of vertex coordinates, various morphing algorithm can be implemented. Consequently, the proposed models ( ...

  5. A Toolkit for Scalable and Automatic Security Analysis Using Security Metrics

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

    Our society has become increasingly dependent on the reliability and proper functioning of a vast number of interconnected information systems. To improve the security of these systems, it is necessary to measure the amount of security provided by different systems and configuration since one cannot improve what cannot be measured. In this proposal, Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) and its consul ...

  6. Mark III Enhancement Program

    SBC: KEYW-Wave Sciences Joint Venture            Topic: N/A

    The NIST array was the first public-domain digital array hardware design. It introduced the (then) novel idea of live capture and streaming of raw array microphone audio over Ethernet for use by one or more computers on a network. The design has been improved over the years to bring it to the Mark III version 2 (2005). The present system is an excellent tool for research into microphone arrays, au ...

  7. Programmable Fingerprint Emulator

    SBC: PHT AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the development of a technology apparatus which can dynamically synthesize a mechanical fingerprint pattern, from an electronic image or from a computer-generated artificial pattern, onto a 2-dimensional pliable surface whose surface height is modulated by protrusions in the z-axis direction. When mechanically applied to a fingerprint sensor-under-test, the synthesized modulat ...

  8. Quantitative Techniques for Surface Characterization and Solderability Assessments of OSP- Coated Printed Wiring Board

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

    Objectives of this project include the development of electrochemical techniques for measurement of (i) thinckness of OSP coatings, (ii) amount and type of copper oxides within and under the OSP coating, (iii) protective effectiveness of OSP coatings, and (iv) solderability prediction of OSP-coated PWBs. We will evaluate the effect of major parameters of the coating, storage, and soldering proces ...

  10. A Dynamic Bulk Modulus/PVT Apparatus for Characterization of Polymers

    SBC: Radix Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Currently, advanced tools for modeling injection modeling of thermoplastics and predicting formed part dimensional stability and residual stress content use the static bulk modulus of the polymer at the temperatures and pressures associated with the molding process. The short cycle times associated with injection molding, however, could be more accurately modeled if dynamic bulk modulus data were ...
