  1. Nanometer Precision Absolute Linear Interferometer

    SBC: AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.            Topic: 090101

    The goal of this Phase I project is to develop an affordable, accurate, and rapid absolute interferometric length measurement technique with improved repeatability and accuracy. API has a patent-pending technology, Frequency-Modulated Time-to-Frequency Mapping Interferometer (FM-TFMI), that is an absolute interferometer capable of measuring at high speed and with exceptionally high accuracy. The T ...

  2. High-Throughput Low-Cost Manufacturing of Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: 90103

    New shape-engineered iron-based microscopic contrast agents (MCAs) for magnetic resonance imaging promise to increase diagnostic accuracy while reducing side effects, and enhance scientists’ ability to track stem cells. Currently, techniques used for making multispectral microscale contrast agent particles are cost prohibitive. In Phase I, an innovative technique (employing template-guided elect ...

  3. Resonant Scan Lens for Scanning Beam LIDAR

    SBC: z-senz LLC            Topic: 90501

    The objective of this Phase II project is to research, develop, and commercialize a resonant scan lens (RSL) for use in a resonant light detection and ranging (R-LIDAR) distance sensor. R-LIDAR uses a resonant optomechanical system to generate a beam scan. While resonant optomechanical systems produce high-speed and large field-of-view (FOV) scans from a miniature form factor, the beam scans lack ...

  4. Probabilistic subseasonal weather forecasts for the energy & agriculture sectors

    SBC: CLIMATE FORECAST APPLICATIONS NETWORK, LLC            Topic: 831

    This proposal from Climate Forecast Applications Network addresses the challenge of providing business-relevant subseasonal forecasts for the energy and agricultural sectors, including applications to renewable energy. An innovative multi-model prediction system using the CFSv2 and ECMWF forecasts will be developed to exploit the advantages of each model. An interactive web-based dashboard system ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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. ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
