  1. Irradiated Environmental Chambers

    SBC: Measurement Analysis Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Using a novel concept for humidity control, based on a proprietary saturated air source, MAC will construct and evaluate a prototype of an environmental chamber for use with NIST’s SPHERE UV source, in weathering or other UV degradation studies. The chamber will interface to the exit ports of the SPHERE, maintaining the material coupons, mounted in a standardized sample holder, at a programmed t ...

  4. A Compact, Tamper-Resistant, Portable Fingerprint Scanner

    SBC: SBG Labs            Topic: N/A

    With the growing demand for more efficient fingerprinting techniques, live scans are rapidly displacing traditional ink-based methods. Despite improvements in detector and processing technology for capturing and digitizing fingerprints, current equipment falls well short of NIST’s goal of a small, tamper-resistant, battery-powered, handheld scanner. Incumbent equipment suppliers have little comm ...
