  1. Electromagnetic Detection of Tornadoes

    SBC: Airborne Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate objective of this project is to develop an instrument capable of remote detection and location of tornadoes and/or storms containing tornadoes. There are many reports, both scientific and anecdotal, suggesting that tornadoes and tornadic thunderstorms emit anomalous electromagnetic (EM) radiation-both RF and luminous. This radiation is characterized by unusually high rates of EM pulse ...

  3. 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. A Dynamical Instrument for Machining Centers

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In the program, we will develop a measurement system based on the dynamics of the machining process. This system will use the variation in the forces or accelerations occurring during machining to characterize the mechanisms occurring between the cutter and workpiece. This will provide real time indications of the finish of the surface that is being created, the proximity to the chatter threshol ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A mobile Boundary Layer Radar Wind Profiler for Remote Measurements of Vertical Wind Shear

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop a mobile boundary layer radar wind profiler intended for rapid deployment in regions of severe storm activity. The goal of this research will be investigate the feasibility of developing a low cost, low maintenance, mobile instrument capable of profiling vertical and horizontal wind velocities in the lowest 3 km of the atmosphere. The system's mobility and quick setup t ...

  8. High Resolution Surface Current Mapping Radar System for Intercoastal Waterways

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Quadrant Engineering has recently developed a wide bandwidth microwave radar system, named CDKS, capable of processing radar signals using the Delta K technique. Design goals were to develop a ruggedized, compact, and low-cost instrument for operational use as part of NOAA's harbor monitoring system. In this project, the first field experiments are to be carried out using the CDKS system. These ...

  10. 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 ...
