  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. Improved Techniques for Optimistic Modeling

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA11031

    With discrete event or time stepped techniques, modeling and simulation (M & S) systems inefficiently utilize their expensive hardware platforms by idly waiting for results from slower model elements. Optimistic execution allows faster elements to"work ahead"but makes implementations much more complex, e.g., support for hypothetical timelines and speculative results that may need to be undone or r ...

  4. Decision Support for Software Code Analysis

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: MDA09030

    The Sentar veriScan tool is a software assurance product for analyzing and assessing both source and binary software files for the presence of program vulnerabilities, coding weaknesses, and malicious intent. VeriScan automates the execution of a critical mass of analysis programs for verifying large scale, implicitly trusted software systems; performs risk assessments; reports on those risks in ...

  5. Smart Sensing for Integrated Low Power Radiological Protection

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA12006

    The focus of Phase I of this project was to develop a materials based sensor to provide a novel approach to x-ray detection which is low power, cost effective, and highly integratable. Phase II of this project will further develop the design of the sensor and set the stage for a production level prototype. Phase II includes the investigation of the sensor"s capabilities and the optimization of sy ...

  6. Marking of Components for Avoidance of Counterfeit Parts (Phase II)

    SBC: Applied DNA Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA12026

    Applied DNA Sciences (APDN) has developed a reliable DNA-optical adduct that is impervious to copying and is required by the Defense Logistic Agency (DLA) for the marking of FSC 5962 electronic components. Commercial inks supplemented with optical markers and proprietary APDN DNA, trademarked SigNature DNA, ink provide authentication marks that are of a higher standard relative to other taggant t ...

  8. Automated Target Characterization and Correlation with Heterogeneous Kinematic and Feature Data for Sensor Hand-Over

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: MDA12005

    In Phase I, our team applied their extensive experience in this area to develop and implement a unified target characterization and correlation framework focused on sensor hand-over (SHO) between electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) and radar. The SHO system is designed to operate in an environment with multiple heterogeneous sensors where detection, classification and localization information is exchan ...

  9. Thermal Isolation of Solid Rocket Motor Exit Cone and Nozzle

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA12027

    Primary missile structures, ancillary mechanical and electrical sub-components of missile propulsion systems must be thermally isolated from hot propulsion gases. Silica-cloth phenolic and carbon-cloth phenolic are the go-to legacy insulator materials of choice. However, these materials have limited temperature use; mechanical degradation with decomposition of the matrix; and high thermal condu ...
