  1. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  2. Developing Lightning Data Services for Commercial and Public Applications

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 9401

    In this Phase I effort, CFD Research proposes the creation of a lightning services API using data from the GOES-16/17 Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) and the development of valued-added lightning initiation and cessation products. Leveraging CFD Research’s experience in software and API development and atmospheric sciences for lightning research applications, this API will provide a simplif ...

  3. Rational Design of sub-100 nm Polystyrene Particles with a Low Coefficient of Variation in Size

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: NA

    During this Phase II SBIR development program, Tetramer Technologies will develop highlymonodisperse 100-nm and sub-100-nm diameter nanoparticles for use as latex size standards. Highlymonodisperse nanoparticle latexes are needed for improved calibration of electron microscopes, lightscatteringparticle sizing instruments, atomic force microscopes, and particle counters/contamination monitors used ...

  4. A Location-based Weather Threat Tracking and Notification System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 834

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: CFDRC proposes the creation of an innovative location-based threat tracking and notification system to allow users to receive hazardous weather messages from the NWS with their call to action, allow users to receive custom-tailored messages about threats, and visualize relevant weather information within their area. The focus is on a tool that allows this information to be comm ...

  5. Rational Design of sub-100 nm Polystyrene Particles With a Low Coefficient of Variation in Size

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: NA

    In this Phase I SBIR program, Tetramer Technologies will develop new, commercially attractive, highly monodisperse polystyrene latex standards in a variety of sizes (i.e. 30 nm to 100 nm) via emulsion polymerization processes that employ a surfactant and that are surfactant-free. Surfactant free emulsions will be stabilized through the use of ionic comonomers in the emulsion polymerization. The fo ...

  6. Query-Based Interoperability for Simulation of Composite Structures

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 9020673R

    We propose to design and implement a query-based approach to interoperable modeling and simulation of composite material structures, that usually contain the manufacturing recipe within their design. In Phase I, we established the feasibility of the approach using a demonstration scenario of CAD/CAE interoperability for assemblies. In Phase II, we propose to develop a series of use-case scenarios ...

  7. High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9020663R

    Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to perform a single measurement. Moreover, manufacturers are interested in comprehensive evaluation of thin ...

  8. Query- Based Interoperability and CAD/CAE Integration in Assemblies

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and implement a set of CAD queries by which to achieve model interchangeability in assemblies, model interoperability, and model integration for CAD/CAE. A model scenario will be used to illustrate how this can be accomplished. In Phase 1, we will establish the feasibility of the approach, develop high level algorithms and conduct software experiments to verify their efficienc ...

  9. An Automated Test Bed for Assessing System-of-System (SoS) Assurance

    SBC: DeVivo AST, Inc.            Topic: 9040177R

    As System-of-Systems (SoS) become more complex, interactions and latent emergent behaviors become difficult to identify and control. Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) are a prime example of SoS that are both critical and difficult to assure. Drawing upon prior work into multi-criteria decision making (MCDM), DeVivo AST has developed TOP Score, a software tool that facilitates the modeling and anal ...

  10. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...
