  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 ...

  5. High Porosity Ceramic Matrix Composite for Cooling and Drag Reduction

    SBC: THE SENTIENT CORP            Topic: A14007

    Historically, the porosity associated with ceramic matrix composite structures has been viewed as a detriment for many missile applications. The standard practice is to perform several treatment/retreatment processes to reduce the porosity to an acceptable level while increasing the strength of the structure. The processing methods inherent to the production of many composite materials may provid ...

  6. Wide Field of View Primary Optic for Semi-Active Laser Sensor

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A14008

    The US Army employs Semi-Active Laser seeker (SAL-seeker) sensors on several missile platforms to provide precision guidance to targets. The sensor for a SAL-seeker is typically a narrow FOV quad-cell based sensor integrated onto a gimbal, providing a wide Field of Regard to acquire and lock onto a laser designator beam for guidance to the target. The objective of this work is to develop a ...

  7. High-scale Production of a Thermo-Reversible Natural Elastomer Fiber

    SBC: Gene Link, Inc.            Topic: A14015

    Structural proteins hold great promise to provide a broad range of DoD national security solutions. Squid ring teeth (SRT) is a structural protein extracted from tentacles of squid suction cups, which exhibits an unusual and reversible transition from a solid to a melt (thermoplastic), and can be thermally shaped into any 3D geometry (e.g. fibers, colloids, and thin films).
