  1. Particle Sizing and Identification Through Advanced Light Scatter Techniques

    SBC: Ade Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Light scatter has been used to map and size particles on silicon wafers for many years, producing accurate maps of particle position and giving an indication of particle size, but do not reveal any information about particle composition. Today's technology is limited by noise, precluding detection of the smallest particles of interest. Present instruments are not adequate for the next generation ...

  2. AER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW CONCEPT IN PROVIDING WEATHER \FORECASTING FOR INDUSTRY, MADE POSSIBLE BY THE DECREASING COSTS OF POWERFUL COMPUTERS.

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW CONCEPT IN PROVIDING WEATHER \FORECASTING FOR INDUSTRY, MADE POSSIBLE BY THE DECREASING COSTS OF POWERFUL COMPUTERS. IMPROVED SHORT-RANGE FORECASTS WOULD BE OBTAINED BY RUNNING A MODEL ON THE USER'S COMPUTER. THE MODEL WOULD ACCESS THE FORECASTS OF THE NATIONAL METEROLOGICAL CENTER AND MODIFY THEM THROUGH A DETAILED SIMULATION OF THE PHYSICS OF ATMOSPHERIC PROCESSES,T ...

  3. NEURAL NETWORK APPLICATIONS FOR CLOUD-TRACK WIND DETERMINATION

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO APPLY ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS TO THE DERIVATION OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS FROM SATELLITE IMAGERY. IN PHASE I, WE WILL CONCENTRATE ON USING A NEURAL NETWORK IN THE FIRST STEP IN THE DERIVATIO OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS, THE HEIGHT ASSIGNMENT AND TARGET SELECTION. THE NEURAL NETWORK COMBINES, AT EACH IMAGE PIXEL, BRIGHTNESS IN DIFFERENT CHANNELS TO DETERMINE CLOUD TYPE AND LEVEL (I.E., L ...

  4. High Resolution Semiconductor Gamma Ray Detectors for Radionuclide Metrology

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of Commerce
  5. ADVANCED SYSTEM FOR MINEHUNTING AND OCEANOGRAPHIC REMOTE SENSING

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Department of Commerce
  6. PARALLEL METHODS FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL DEVELOP WAVELET-BASED DOMAIN DECOMPOSITION PROCEDURES FOR THE SOLUTION OF THE INITIAL VALUE PROBLEM FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION ON MULTIDIMENSIONAL SPATIAL DOMAINS. ACCURATE AND PRACTICAL NUMERICAL CALCULATIONS WOULD BE OF GREAT USE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EXTENSION OF THE BORN-OPPENHEIMER PROCEDURE. BEING BOTH COMPACTLY SUPPORTED AND ORTHOGONAL, WAVELETS COMBINE THE ADVANTAGES OF FINI ...

  7. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  8. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW COST MANUFACTURING PROCESS FOR PRODUCTION OF HIGH QUALITY TITANIUM SURGICAL IMPLANT COMPONENTS

    SBC: DYNAMET TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCES IN TITANIUM ALLOY POWDER METALLURGY (P/M), UTILIZING HIGH PURITY STARTING POWDERS, HAVE RESULTED IN STATIC AND DYNAMIC MECHANICAL PROPERTIES COMPARABLE TO WROUGHT TITANIUM ALLOYS. THE DEVELOPMENTS OVERCOME EARLIER LIMITATIONS IN FATIGUE RESISTANCE WHICH RESTRICTED P/M TITANIUM USAGE FROM THE DEMANDING REQUIREMENTS OF SURGICAL IMPLANTS. DUE TO THE INHERENT ECONOMIES OF P/M PROCESSES, P/M T ...

  9. A High Temperature Fiber Optic Raman Probe for Corrosion and Process Monitoring

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of Commerce
  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A BUOY-MOUNTED CO2 ANALYZER

    SBC: Endeco/ysi, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRECISE MEASUREMENTS ON CO2 UPTAKE BY THE OCEANS ARE NEEDED IN ORDER TO INCREASE OUR CURRENT UNDERSTANDING OF THE GLOBAL CO2 CYCLE, AND DORMULATE INTELLIGENT CO2 MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES. WE PROPOSE TO MONITOR THE CO2 PARTIAL PRESSURE DIFFERENTIAL AT THE AIR-SEA INTERFACE BY DEVELOPING A BUOY-MOUNTED CO2 ANALYZER. OCEAN BUOYS ARE USED FOR PHYSICAL OCEANOGRAPHIC AND METEOROLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS, AND TO ...
