  1. Real-Time Image Vector Processor: RTIVP

    SBC: Aspex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Proposed Innovation is real-time hardware for image processing, image understanding and machine vision that will achieve significant performance increases over current systems by implementing a set of operations required to support a specific set of algorithms. These algorithms are intended to process and analyze multiple, parallel partial derivative images or "Jet bundles" which provide a fr ...

  3. NANOSTRUCTURE FABRICATION OF SOLID STATE DEVICES

    SBC: Avoca Laboratorytories            Topic: N/A

    AS THE DIMENSIONS OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES APPROACH ATOMIC SCALES, A RANGE OF NEW QUANTIZIED PHENOMENA APPEAR. ONE SUCH EFFECT, COULOMB BLOCKADE, REPRESENTS A FRONTIER AREA OF RESEARCH IN APPLIED NANOSCIENCE. HOWEVER, DIFFICULTIES IN FABRICATING DEVICES SMALL ENOUGH TO DEMONSTRATE QUANTUM BEHAVIOR HAVE RESTRICTED PROGRESS IN THIS FIELD. DURING PHASE 1, AVOCA LABORATORIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND FABRIC ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  6. Development of Low-Cost Single-State SQUID Array Amplifiers for High-Resolution Particle and X-Ray Detectors

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HYPRES is developing a novel wide-bandwidth SQUID-based amplifier chip for cryogenic particle detectors. A novel approach for implementing a wide bandwidth and inexpensive SQUID readout scheme was recently proposed and demonstrated by Wilty and Martinis at NIST. The SQUID chip integrated in this system is based on a single analog SQUID coupled to an array of SQUIDs. HYPRES is presently producin ...

  9. A Virtual Machining and Inspection System (VMIS)

    SBC: Icamp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the VMIS is to allow manufacturers the luxury of testing and perfecting manufacturing plans long before a single machine tool is turned on and resources are committed. The VMIS will allow the user to select an available machine tool and an available inspection device, specify a proposed inspection plan and a dimensional analysis procedure, and then build and inspect hundreds (or ev ...

  10. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...
