SBC: HYPRES, INC. Topic: N/A
The principal factor preventing wide use of the Josephson primary voltage standard is its cost. By reducing the cost of a HYPRES voltage standard to a level comparable with true cost of secondary standards (including the cost of calibration and low accuracy, etc.), and making it easy to use, we intend to put the Josephson voltage Standard within reach of most secondary standard users. In phase I ...SBIR Phase II 1997 Department of Commerce
Automated Feature Extraction from Scanned Nautical Charts and High-Resolution Images for GIS Applications Using Expert Systems Programmable with Pseudo-EnglishSBC: Susquehanna Resources And Topic: N/A
Converted from advanced automatic target recognition (ATR) processors, this new feature extraction/GIS system (a) uses raster data as input, and thus eliminates manual digitization; (b) uses expert systems to extract features automatically, and thus eliminates time-consuming and error-prone manual object tracing; and (c) vectorizes the extracted objects and converts them into GIS layers automatica ...SBIR Phase II 1997 Department of Commerce
SBC: X-RAY OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: N/A
The project will research a new generation of optic for focusing cold neutrons using tapered capillary optics. The success of the program will result in neutron beam probes with unprecedented spatial resolution and detection limits for small sample volumes. The individuals involved are the world leaders in neutron focusing capillary optics, having achieved better than an order-of-magnitude impro ...SBIR Phase II 1997 Department of Commerce
