  1. A Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA)

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RSI will develop a technology to improve fire fighter visibility and enable tracking of position/identity. The Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA) will use RSI's microscale retroreflectors, a near-infrared (IR) coating and near-IR sources pulsing on alternating video frames to encode fire fighter identities, and a near-IR video camera. These grain-of-sand-sized markers wo ...

  2. A Non-Contact Sensor for Advanced Warning of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Summit Safety, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Summit Safety will develop an ultrasonic, non-contact sensor and system capable of detecting small displacements of structure - such as roof sagging and structural bending - and the acoustic sounds and fire-induced vibrations of structures that are precursors of structural collapse. The system will provide advanced warning to the Incident Commander of potential or imminent structure collapse. In P ...

  4. Acoustic Pulsed Phase Locking Energy Sensor (APPLES)

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Luna Innovations has developed for NIST a low-cost, yet high resolution acoustic sensor system capable of determining ten micro-degree changes in a water path caused by clinical medical radiation devices. A system will be delivered to NIST for their evaluation and testing. The sensors are external to the water and play a negligible role in error sources from thermal transfer in contrast to current ...

  5. Active Mixing of Polymers in a Dispensing Head

    SBC: nScrypt, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A method to take three polymers with varying viscosities and mixing those polymers together at the point of interest or more specifically through a micro dispensing nozzle, is being proposed. An active mixing scheme to ensure proper mixing at the pen tip is a feasible approach to this problem. The materials being mixed will not only range in viscosity but also in particle loading, which will be ha ...

  10. Compact Speaker Array for Clinical Testing of Ear-level Devices

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: DHA18007

    While clinical audiometry is most often conducted with headphones, there are many practical cases where it is desirable to measure the free-space hearing performance of both normal-hearing listeners and listeners wearing hearing aids, hearing protection devices, or implantable hearing prosthetics, both for evaluating fitness for duty and for evaluating outcomes of clinical interventions. Tradition ...
