  1. Inline Material Electrical Characterization Sensor (IMECS)

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is no capability to rapidly assess the electrical properties of nanofiber films during manufacturing and prepregging process. Continuous monitoring of these films will guide the U.S. nanofiber manufacturing industry in optimizing and increasing the yield rate with proper process optimization and avoid any inconsistency in the process and the cost with associated waste material. To address th ...

  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small shift of the X-ray line position that ...

  3. Bragg Grating Enhanced Narrowband Single Photon SPDC Source

    SBC: Gener8, Inc.            Topic: 9010177TT

    Spontaneous Parametric Down conversion (SPDC) is currently an active research area in quantum communications (QC) to develop entangled single photon sources. However, the bandwidth of current SPDC sources is too broad for many applications. NIST researchers have modeled a solution to this problem that reduces the bandwidth by >50. We proposed to fabricate a prototype of the NIST device by developi ...

  4. Smart Manufacturing Workflow Environment

    SBC: Nimbis Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nimbis in partnership with UCLA and Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC) will provide an open workflow environment that supports the sequential execution of 3rd party APPS using net-worked information based modeling and data analytic technologies to integrate manufacturing intelligence across an entire manufacturing ecosystem. The SMWE leverages Nimbis commercial cloud technical analysi ...

  5. Digital Micromirror Device Detection Scheme for Transmission Scanning Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Accurate quantitative characterization of materials is crucial for a wide range of industrial and research applications. New transmission scanning electron microscopy (t-SEM) methods have the potential for high-resolution imaging similar to transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with a less expensive, faster, and more widely available SEM system. To exploit the full potential of these imaging tech ...

  6. : Advanced Tactile Sensing for Dexterous Robot Hands in Industrial Automation and Assembly

    SBC: Syntouch L.L.C.            Topic: 9020173R

    Robotic actuators exceed human speed, accuracy, and strength, but human hands are regarded as the ultimate in dexterity. SynTouch proposes this is due absent human-like tactile sensing and intelligent reflexive behaviors in robots. SynTouch created a multimodal compliant tactile sensor that mimics the sensory ability of the human fingertip (force, vibration and temperature) and algorithms that fil ...

  7. Mobile VHF Lightning Mapping System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 942RDW

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a mobile VHF-based sensor suite for detecting and mapping lightning flashes. The proposes Lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LUTMUS)™ System will meet small unmanned aerial system (UAS) cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWAP) constraints and should be capable of being placed on virtually any small UAS. The most critical component of the LITMUS syst ...

  8. Automated Image Analysis for Fisheries Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 921F

    We propose to develop software that is capable of automatically classifying and measuring the length of fish observed in video. We will focus initially on underwater video, but much of the software will also be applicable to fish onboard commercial fishing vessels as well. Our approach is to first segment fish based on their motion in the water. For this purpose, we will make use of existing au ...

  9. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Low Salinity, Inc.            Topic: 922F

    The current emphasis in fish nutrition is fish meal replacement with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. We propose to focus specifically upon the protein quality of these alternate protein sources and its potential impacts on marine fish production. Animal byproduct meals created through the rendering industry are widely utilized as i ...

  10. Solid Waste Remediation System (SWRS) for Small Contingency Base Camps

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD12EP2

    To meet the requirements of the Army Solid Waste Remediation System, for Small Contingency Base Camps, Altex has developed a Compact Ward Furnace Energy Recovery System (CWFERS), which was proven feasible by testing and analysis, under a Phase I award. The system reduces fuel consumption by 92% fuel, compared to a traditional remediation system, and converts the energy in the bulk waste to hot wa ...
