  1. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...

  2. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  3. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volt version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resist ...

  4. A Model-Based Solution to Improve the Accessibility and Affordability of Manufacturing System Simulations

    SBC: MBSE Tools, Inc.            Topic: NA

    The vision is to provide decision-makers with effective, fast, and inexpensive analysis tools to answer "What-If" and "What-Should" questions about manufacturing systems. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a modeling methodology with widespread contemporary use in manufacturing, and our strategy is to start with VSM as a deployment beachhead for the eventual deployment of a more generic manufacturing s ...

  5. MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENTAL NOWCASTING FOR TACTICAL ARMY OPERATIONS

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PLAN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MESOSCALE WEATHER NOWCASTING SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. THAT SYSTEM WOULD BE USED AS A TACTICAL DECISION AID FOR SUPPORT OF TACTICAL ARMY OPERATIONS. THE SYSTEM WOULD BE COMPOSED OF MODULAR SENSOR PACKAGES, A TELEMETRY SYSTEM, A FLEXIBLE SYSTEM OF SENSOR DEPLOYMENT, AND A MICROPROCESSOR BASED TACTICAL COMPUTER SYSTEM FOR THE ANALYSIS AND DISPLAY OF DATA COLLECTED. THE PROP ...
