  1. Technology Transfer of Scanning Magnetic Field Imaging


    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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ( ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Renewable Biofuel Based on Jojoba Oil

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: N/A

    With the United States dependence on foreign oil imports, new renewable sources of fuel compatible with combustion engines must be found. A source of this new biofuel could be the jojoba plant which is native to the desert Southwest. This is a plant which grows on non-arable desert lands which do not presently support food production in the United States. The use of this feedstock as a fuel would ...

  7. Sustainable Production Practices in Woody Cut Flower Markets

    SBC: SEABERRY FARM, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Woody cut branches are portions of trees or shrubs used for floral design or decorative purposes, including foliage, flowering branches, fruit and seeds, and bare stems and branches. Specialty cut flower growers add woody cut branches to their production line in order to diversify their products, expand their markets and extend market season. Within the cut flower market, woody cut branch material ...

  8. Free-living Energy Balance Assessment and Management in Close to Real Time

    SBC: MEI Research, Ltd            Topic: N/A

    So many Americans are overweight that the condition has been declared a serious public health problem and is burdening our health care systems. Obesity increases the risk of diabetes, heart attack, stroke, cancer, arthritis, sleep apnea and other diseases. Researchers are making progress to find and control the behavioral and biochemical factors that drive weight gain and their progress points to ...

  9. Corn Stover Sorbent Granules

    SBC: CLEAN PLUS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Waste oils, coolants and other hazardous liquids dripped or spilled on the floor of machine shops, manufacturing facilities, auto repair and service shops have been a recognized environmental liability for decades. Far and away the most common medium used to clean up these spills has been clay based sorbents, commonly called "floor dry". Clay as an absorbent medium presents its own problems. It is ...

  10. Hyperspectral Fluorescence Imaging Detection System for Black Walnut Shell Fragments Recognition and Removal

    SBC: Industry Vision Automation, Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The black walnut grows throughout the central and eastern United States. It's rich, tasty flavor is a high-valued food additive. Although 15.4 acres of black walnuts yield approximately 4 billon pounds of raw nuts annually, only about 20 million pounds are commercially processed. With low economic incentives and small processing capacity, growers lack motivation to harvest. However, the growers ca ...
