  1. Production of NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom for Magnetic Resonance Imagaing (MRI)

    SBC: Phantom Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    his project involves the commercialization of the breast phantom designed by NIST and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) for quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The breast phantom consists of two independent phantoms, one focused on diffusion MRI measurements and the other focused on accurate measurements of fat and fibroglandular tissue properties. The proposed phantom is o ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  3. Automated Analog Electronics Design Tools for Obsolete Parts

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF131057

    ABSTRACT: Ridgetop Group will develop design tools to facilitate fabrication of obsolete, radiation-hardened, precision analog components. The methodology that is developed and validated during the nine-month Phase I SBIR program will be transitioned into an easy-to-use prototype software tool during Phase II. The Ridgetop EDA tool integrates well-known commercial EDA solutions to support radia ...

  5. Ultra-Scalable Nonvolatile Graphene Memory

    SBC: Harper Laboratories            Topic: AF131082

    ABSTRACT: The physical scalability of Si based nonvolatile memory is problematic for the terascale integration of space memory. In particular and with regards to Flash, this problem is two-fold as device designs breakdown and photolithographic patterning approaches its limits to minimum feature size. Whereas phase-change and ferroelectric polymer devices have shown promise to scale beyond Flash ...

  6. Landing Gear Strut Operational Readiness Monitoring

    SBC: DAYTON T. BROWN, INC.            Topic: AF131196

    ABSTRACT: Dayton T Brown, Inc. (DTB), a leader in aircraft system engineering and testing services, is proposing to develop a comprehensive, robust, and accurate system for monitoring and assessing the operational readiness of landing gear systems via verification of proper serving (i.e. fluid level, gas pressure and temperature). DTB will team with General Atomics Systems Integration Division ( ...

  7. Multiscale Lagrangian-Eulerian Algorithm for Determining the Vorticity Confinement Term for Rotorcraft Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Computations

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: N132092

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop a multi-scale computational algorithm to determine the vorticity confinement term for rotorcraft Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) computations. Similar to the Large Eddy Simulation approach, the proposed approach simulates the large scales in the flow field and models the unresolved small scales like the tip vortices in the computations. The large sc ...

  8. High Dynamic-range Wideband Digital-RF Receiver

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N132098

    The ability to capture wide instantaneous bandwidth with high fidelity is essential for analysis of various signals-of-interest. Superconductor analog-to-digital converters (ADC) offer discriminating advantages in both bandwidth and fidelity due to very high sampling rates (up to 100 GHz demonstrated) and quantum-accurate digitization based on counting of magnetic flux quanta. Multiple digital-RF ...

  9. Ultra-Broadband, High Dynamic Range Receiver System

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: N132098

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of an ultra-broadband, high dynamic range receiver system for signal capture, storage, and analysis. The significance of this innovation lies in generating significant cost savings in testing military receiver systems through stimulation via playback of high-fidelity recordings at RF frequencies. Optimization and testing can now be p ...

  10. Advanced Helo Display for Zero-Zero Shipboard Landings

    SBC: KUTTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N132133

    As a primary developer of Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) DO-178C applications for manned and unmanned systems, Kutta is keenly aware of human machine interface (HMI) interaction issues in fixed-wing and rotary wing platforms. For this effort Kutta proposes to develop an Advanced Landing and Display System (ALDS) for use in Degraded Visual Environments (DVE). ALDS will assist in ...
