  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. Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feed

    SBC: ABN            Topic: 841

    If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted at maximum sustainable levels of harvest, but also there is increasing concern that these feedstocks ...

  7. Heads-up Vessel Navigation using Raster/Vector Data

    SBC: GMA INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: 851

    This project entails a comprehensive approach to developing an innovative solution to heads-up display navigation for marine vessels that addresses the required hardware, the sources of raster and vector navigation and marine charting data, and the means to convey these data to watch standers on the bridge in a manner that enhances their performance. During Phase I we identify specific heads-up d ...

  8. Ground Level Assimilative Model (GLAM) of Geomagnetic Field Disturbance Conditions

    SBC: Metatech APS Division            Topic: 812

    Geomagnetic disturbances have caused widespread disruptions to power grids throughout North America. It is necessary to fully describe the complex physical manifestation of geomagnetic disturbance environments to model how and to what extent these disturbances impact modern ground-based critical infrastructures. The Ground Level Assimilative Model (GLAM) would provide the general public and opera ...

  9. Ultra-High Vacuum Compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer

    SBC: PARALLAX RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    Parallax Research, Inc. proposes to develop an Ultra-High Vacuum Compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer for use on Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopes, Transmission Electron Microscopes, Auger Spectroscopy Systems, and X-ray Photo-electron Spectroscopy Systems. We propose to build on Parallax's designs of innovative parallel beam x-ray spectrometers and incorporate new types ...

  10. Monitor for Risk of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Sekos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposal is to develop a system to monitor fire-induced structural vibrations that provide real time data correlating with structural integrity. The system is designed to bridge an "information void" and provide firefighters with information that can warn of impending collapse. The system, based on accelerometer technology, will monitor structural integrity through the algorithmic analysis of ...
