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

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of Commerce
  2. Algorithms for Health Care Quality Management and Outcomes Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    American health care is in the midst of momentous change. Quality improvement principles are being used increasingly to enhance productivity and efficiency of health care delivery and to help contain costs. In producing patient outcomes and resource utilization measures, it is vital to control appropriately for case mix (i.e., differences in patients due, e.g., to illness severity) in the predicti ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. Characterization of Consolidation of Non-Spherical Powders

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    We propose to characterize the early stage of consolidation of non-spherical powders to further the development of process models to enable simulation of powder metallurgy manufacturing for the consumer market, especially the automotive industry. Typically, spherical powders with a narrow size distribution are used for aerospace applications, while low-cost powders with irregular shapes and a wide ...

  6. Controlled Spawning and Larviculture of Florida Pompano

    SBC: HarvestFresh Seafoods, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of technology for the predictable, natural spawning of captive Florida pompano (Trachinotus carolinus) utilizing photoperiod and temperature manipulation is propose, along with the subsequent larval rearing and fingerling production through a joint effort between HarvestFresh Seafoods, Inc., and the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences at Texas A&M University. The pompano is a ...

  7. Development of A1203 Detector Material and OSL Dosimetric Technique for

    SBC: Stillwater Sciences, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a new research program to be established at the small business Still Sciences, LLC, in collaboration with Department of Physics of Oklahoma State University. The overall goal is to develop and commercialize an all-optical dosimetry system for industrial radiation processing based on a novel Pulsed Optically Stimulated Luminescence readout technique and a new Al2O3 material ...

  8. Diode Laser-Based Optical Flux Monitor for MBE Control

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

    A diode laser method for the real-time measurement of absolute flux concentrations and spatial profiles of atomic beams used in MBE will be tested. The proposed method uses the doubled output of a near-infrared diode laser to access atomic absorption lines of species such as Ga, Al and In. The detection method will combine high frequency wavelength modulation and noise canceler approaches in order ...

  9. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  10. Foundations for Product Realization Process (PRP) Knowledge Sharing

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Recent years have seen a great increase in the use of a variety of computer applications for modeling enterprise processes, notably, in the areas of simulations, planning, scheduling, and workflow. Currently, however, there are no robust mechanisms to support the exchange of the information in those models. Lately this problem has been addressed by a number of research efforts. The focus of these ...
