  1. High Performance Signal Processing Tools with Fluctuation-Enhanced Sensing

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: 9020163R

    We propose a high performance library of signal processing tools that incorporate a newly developed technique known as fluctuation enhanced sensing (FES) to enhance the novel microsensor developed at NIST. Our goal is to improve the performance of the NIST sensor from two angles. One is to apply our existing proven algorithms to the NIST data. The other one is to incorporate advanced FES concept t ...

  2. Enhanced Security Content Automation Protocol Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: 9040577R

    G2 proposes to develop an intuitive, interactive SCAP content creation and editing utility that will provide a user-friendly operating environment. The promise of security automation offers the opportunity for great advances in software assurance, security governance/reporting, and ongoing monitoring activities. Hindering that promise is the fact that current data exchange protocols are cumbersome ...

  3. Massively Parallel High Temperature Probe System for Wafer-level Reliability Testing

    SBC: Celadon Systems Inc.            Topic: 910021R

    Historical methods of reliability assessment are less and less effective as device sizes shrink. Larger sample sizes and longer duration tests are increasingly needed. At the same time, efforts to continue scaling semiconductors to ever smaller geometries is leading to an explosion of new device structures, materials and processes. The cost of testing these innovations is becoming a major barrier ...

  4. Wide-area Environmental Sensing and AlerTing Networks (WESTnets)

    SBC: SALO IT SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 841W

    Salo IT Solutions, Inc. will design and implement the Wide-area, Environmental Sensing and alterTing network (WESTnet) protocols, a next-generation suite of wireless network protocols that will provide enhanced services for hydrologic warning systems and other large-scale, wide-area environmental monitoring activities. The WESTnet protocols will offer significant functionality over that available ...

  5. Extraction of Bioproducts from Algae in Water using Cavitating Jets

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 812SG

    One of the most promising biomass sources for fuels and other feedstocks is photosynthetic algae. Algae can produce lipids, proteins, and other compounds, and can be grown in salt water. Current production practices rely on expensive means of harvesting, concentrating, and extracting the algae. This makes the “bio-crude” produced by algae more expensive than petroleum. Recovering the cellular ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Interactive, 3-D Mathematics Instructions

    SBC: Seward Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to develop an demonstrate the feasibility of computer-based, multimedia instruction to facilitate the acquisition of difficult to learn mathematics principles. The goal will be accomplished through the design and development of a multimedia interface that uses audio prompts, interaction graphics, and text displays to guide learners through problem solving activities. ...

  10. The Underwater Stereoscopic Measurement System

    SBC: Xybion Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Xybion Corporation will develop a video-camera based Underwater Stereoscopic Measurement System (USMS) for making routine size estimates of close range objects (0.3 - 8.0 meters from the cameras.) The USMS will build on a set of proprietary algorithms that were developed by Xybion for stereoscopic imaging and are incorporated in a commercial software package. The system will consist of a rigid s ...
