  1. Silicon Carbide UV Photodiode Arrays

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    UV diode detector arrays have a wide range of both commercial and military applications. Examples include spectral measurement and calibration, pollution monitoring, environmental change monitoring, remote sensing of earth resources, solar UV monitoring, burner monitoring in gas turbines, flame detection in furnaces and for fire detections, etc. SiC is one of the most promising material for UV di ...

  2. ADVANCED INFRARED SYSTEMS FOR DETECTION OF BUILDING FIRES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIRES KILL NEARLY 10,000 PEOPLE EACH YEAR IN THE U.S. AND CAUSE NEARLY 300,000 INJURIES AND OVER 6 BILLION DOLLARS IN PROPERTY DAMAGE. THE PER CAPITA LOSS OF LIFE DUE TO FIRES IN THE U.S. IS HIGHER THAN FOR ANY OTHER INDUSTRIAL COUNTRY. CONSEQUENTLY, THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR ADDITIONAL RESEARCH ON FIRES AND FIRE SAFETY. IT HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED THAT MULTIPARAMETER DETECTORS WHICH CAN MEASURE, ...

  3. Reuse Support Tools for Automated Constructino of Software Systems

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reuse in software engineering is an exciting concept that has yet to be reliably implemented. The number of program subroutines that are truly generic (and therefore applicable across all applications) is limited. However, there are specific applications that are required by many organizations, albeit with a set of constraints specific to each organization. This project proposes to design a too ...

  4. DIALOG- A Tool for Team Interactive Organizational Learning in the Healthcare Industry

    SBC: Cities, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop DIALOG, an environment for collaborative decision making that will enable health care providers and administrators to model, learn, and reason about their business enterprise. DIALOG will utilize a user-friendly, pen- and gesture-based graphical interface, and will enable "any time/any place" collaboration over shared digital libraries and dynamic "microworld" simulations. ...

  5. Gulliver Miniature Guarded Hot Plate Apparatus

    SBC: Drf R&d, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a miniature guarded hot plate apparatus that can be used to determine the thermal conductivity or thermal resistance of very small specimens (1 to 3 cm square) of thermal insulation materials over a temperature range from at least -40 degrees Celsius to +65 degrees Celsius, with the apparatus having the capability to carry out measurements under controlled environments of ...

  6. Development of a Commercially Viable Equivalence Ratio Meter

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A combustion environment can be described by a characteristic fuel-to-air ratio normalized by the stoichiometric fuel-to-air ratio, otherwise defined as an equivalence ratio, _. The equivalence ratio is used extensively in a wide range of combustion fields from fundamental flame studies, to full-scale fire testing, to power plant operations. There have been basically two methods for calculating ...

  7. Advanced Ultrafast Modelocked Diode Laser System as a Source for Nonlinear Optical Devices

    SBC: Laser Ionics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is intended to be a major step in the development of a modelocked diode laser system, capable of replacing several expensive and complex components used in seeding of OPO, OPA, and OPG, with direct applications in non-linear optical diagnostics. The company has successfully demonstrated a modelocked diode laser system which features hybird modelocking and produces 100 picojo ...

  8. Accessible Virtual Reality for Machinist Training Modules

    SBC: Microcompatibles, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will emphasize outfitting a virtual classroom and creating a skills (CNC) oriented training program. The virtual classroom will involve contextual learning using a realistic simulation of the manufacturing environment. The simulation will have all of the characteristics of a machine shop, but will allow the learner to explore and experiment ("discover") in ways that would not be pr ...

  9. Generation and Deposition of Nanoscale Particles for Reference Wafers

    SBC: MSP CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    In the semiconductor industry, standard reference wafers are needed for calibrating wafer surface scanners. Scanners are currently available for detecting particles down to a lower size limit of approximately 100 nm (0.1 um). Advanced wafer scanners capable of detecting particles to 60 nm will be needed for future generation of devices such as the 1 Gbit DRAMs (dynamic random access memory) expe ...

  10. Ultrasonic Inspection for Neck/Shoulder Cracks in Aluminum Gas Cylinders

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    Recent catastrophic failures of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) aluminum gas cylinders and similar air tanks have generated the need for a highly reliable, low cost inspection method to insure the integrity of these tanks. The failures of these tanks have been the result of crack formation in the neck and shoulder area. The cracks originate from the interior wall and can re ...
