  1. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

    Out of air situations present a hazard.  They can result in a dangerous emergency ascent, or failure of a diver to reach the surface.  A low air pressure alert (APA) device can provide a valuable margin of safety, but careful design is required.  The device must be effective.  In order for the device to be adopted and success, its ease of use, ergonomics and cost must be attrac ...

  2. A Simplified Sound Propagation Tool

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 819

    In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the role of man-made sound on the marine environment.  For this effort, we propose developing an intuitive software interface for sound propagation modeling.  This will be based on software developed at HLS Research, Inc. for similar applications.  The software will use existing propagation modeling codes that have a long hist ...

  3. High Fidelity, Low Power, Omnidirecddtional Hydrophone

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    There is a need to advance the state of the art low power, portable autonomous underwater hydrophones for recording fish spawning calls and other marine acoustics.  Affordable and reliable autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) mountable hydrophones that can detect such signals in the presence of AUV motor noise are required.  A system that includes software to automatically determine fish ...

  4. Isotopic Carbon Dioxide Analyzer for Atmospheric Studies

    SBC: PICARRO, INC.            Topic: 822

    Picarro has as part of its current product offering, a CRDS-based isotopic (13CO2/12Co2) carbon dioxide analyzer capable of measuring atmospheric levels of CO2 to a precision of 0.3% in a five-minute measurement.  This slow analyzer operated at 1.6¿m.  At this wavelength, we have pushed the very limits of what CRDS is capable of delivering for isotopic CO2.  The isotopic product propos ...

  5. Nanoparticle Characterization in Fluid by Resonant Mass Measurement

    SBC: Affinity Biosensors, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will extend the microchannel resonator to the level of a few attograms, which will allow measurement of individual particles as small as 10 nanometers with unprecedented resolution. The Phase I effort will prove the feasibility of this approach by miniaturizing the MEMS sensors, thereby improving their intrinsic mass sensitivity up to 100-fold; and by simultaneously measuring the sens ...

  6. Development of Pulse/DC Characterization System for LEDs

    SBC: Arroyo Instruments, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to implement the process for a new method for the measurement of LED performance, but in a form that is low-cost, integrated, and easy-to-use, so that the barrier to entry is as low as is possible.

  7. AC Amplifier and System for Nanopore Based DNA Sequencing

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The characterization of biologically relevant polymetric materials is a major focus of the bioinstrumentation industry. Of particular interest is the rapid, direct sequencing of DNA through a nanopore as well as the characterization of other biopolymers. Although progress has been made with nanopore sequencing, some fundamental instrumental and system issues have so far kept the method from realiz ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ( ...
