  1. A Diode Laser Multigas Analyzer for Advanced Detection of Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences will develop a novel fire detection technology based on optical spectroscopy, using diode lasers and fiber optics. Rapid, quantitative detection of part per million concentrations (or better) of multiple gases, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride, and a fiber optical distribution network permits one laser to be used for at least 800 di ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. An Expert System for Aquaculture Environment Control

    SBC: Ortech Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will explore the use of a fuzzy logic based expert system in a closed loop control system for nitrate removal (denitrification) from large aquaculture systems. Nitrate is naturally generated by the bio-mass in any aquatic system. Current techniques for the control of nitrate levels are almost exclusively based on water exchange. For large ...

  5. An Ultrathin Foil Neutral Density Filter Set for the Infrared

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A solution to the need for OD 3 to OD 10 neutral density filters in the infrared (2 to 25 um) with flat wavelength dependence is suggested using submicron thickness polymer films as substrates for multi-layer or co-deposited metallic alloy coatings. Initial studies used Lexan and although they showed feasibility, a stronger and more temperature resistant ultrathin substrate such as polyimide film ...

  6. An Underwater, Video-Based, Stereoscopic Imaging and Measurement System

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The development of a PC-based stereoscopic imaging and measuring system (SIMS) that will be suitable for underwater applications is proposed. There are three main objectives for the Phase 1 work: 1) to evaluate the requirements (accuracy, range, field of view, speed, potability, etc.) For a field-worthy, video-based SIMS; 2) to modify our existing stereo measurement system to accept video input an ...

  7. A Prototype System for Distributed Space-Weather Models and Applications

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Accurate and timely information about space weather has become essential for managing many technologies on which our lives depend (e.g., radio communications, Global Positioning Systems). A major limitation to accessing this information from NOAA and private vendors is the lack of well-defined, standardized methods for accessing data or running models remotely over the Internet. Northwest Research ...

  8. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  9. AUTOMATIC PRIME SOUNDING SELECTION RESEARCH

    SBC: Zycor Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MANUAL SELECTION OF PRIME SOUNDINGS FOR DISPLAY ON A NAUTICAL CHART IS TIME CONSUMING AND EXPENSIVE. THE COMPUTER PROGRAM AVAILABLE TO NOAA WHICH PERFORMS PRIME SOUNDING SELECTION USES OUTDATED SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY. THIS RESEARCH EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AUTOMATING PRIME SOUNDING SELECTION WITH A NEW ALGORITHM WHICH USES OF STATE-OF-THE-ART SURFACE MODELING TECHNIQUES. THE SURFACE ...

  10. 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 ...
