  1. Improved Silicon Drift Detector Coincidence Rejection for Digital Pulse Processors

    SBC: 4pi Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recent emergence of the Silicon Drift detector (SDD), for use in Energy Dispersive x-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), has made possible x-ray event streams with input count rates in the range of 1-10 Mcps. Modern digital pulse processors are therefore required to run at fast time constants to achieve reasonable throughput; however, this causes significant coincidence artifacts to appear in the spectrum ...

  2. Extended Refreshable Tactile Graphic Display (with Linear Actuation Array)

    SBC: E L I A Life Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    New innovative technology for the visually impaired has been developed by NIST. If commercialized, it would provide refreshable tactile graphical information to the visually impaired, enabling them to compete on a more equal footing in the workplace and the education system.

  3. RBAC-Based Workflow

    SBC: Virtual Globe, Inc. (Rockwise)            Topic: N/A

    Under this proposal, Virtual Global, Inc. proposes to work with NIST to develop RBAC-BASED WORKFLOW, a workflow system that will use RBAC in a web services model as a form of middleware that can be "packaged" accessed, configured, and reused by integrating with existing trusted RBAC implementations.

  4. Innovative Fire Measurements Using Thermal Imaging

    SBC: CRITICAL IMAGING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The most practical arrangement for investigating moving fires within a restricted space is to use a high- resolution stand off technique. One such method that fits this description is the use of a staring infrared (IR) sensing device (i.e. imager).

  5. Acoustic Detection and Verification of Intrusions against Military Facilities

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: A08113

    Large military installations and training complexes are difficult to secure because they consist of largely remote and/or unoccupied areas that are open to trespassers and contain numerous sites of localized high-value assets that are vulnerable to vandalism. An acoustic surveillance system that can recognize human activity and provide much needed intelligence information to security officers coul ...

  6. Circulating Prostate Cancer Progenitor Cell Assay Development

    SBC: ANDROBIOSYS, INC.            Topic: A08T041

    This Phase I contract proposal will evaluate and identify markers associated with prostate cancer progenitor stem cells, that differentiate these cells from adult tissue stem cells and benign prostate progenitor cells. The eventual goal of this work would be to develop a high throughput blood-based assay highly specific for circulating prostate cancer progenitor cells. A cell shed from a tumor mu ...

  7. MEMS-Based Optical Beam Steering System for Multi-Color 2D Spot Arrays

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: A06T010

    A MEMS based multicolor beam steering system for generating 2D spot arrays has been demonstrated. For effective quantum computation applications, the optical system requires further optimization and refinement. In phase II, parameters such as beam scanning frame rates, insertion loss, system scalability and methods to improve the stability and ruggedness of the optical system will be enhanced towa ...

  8. Improved Field of Regard for Strap Down Semi Active Laser Seekers

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC            Topic: A08041

    To meet the need of the Army in a semi-active laser seeker with increased field of regard for and narrow instantaneous field of view, Applied Science Innovations, Inc. proposes development of the Wide-Angle Optical System for Strap-down Seeker (WAOS3 ). Semi-active strap-down seekers in tactical weapons offer improved reliability, reduced weight, and lower cost. However, combining wide field of ...

  9. Computational Imaging for Laser Intensity Reduction at CCD Focal Planes

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC            Topic: A08064

    Applied Science Innovations, Inc. proposes development of the Coded-Aperture, Laser Irradiation Tolerant Imaging Sensor (CALITIS) – a novel, computational imaging technique to protect CCD sensors from damage by frequency-agile pulsed lasers. In a conventional camera, collimated laser beam converges into a small point damaging the CCD. The proposed CALITIS will use new computational imaging, wi ...

  10. Realistic High Fidelity Dynamic Terrain Representation

    SBC: Diamond Visionics LLC            Topic: A08151

    The capability to modify terrain in real-time to create realistic modifications will provide training value by assisting in the visualization of the occurrence in the training scenario. For example, the capability to display the creation of craters with explosions or the tracks of vehicles as they move across soft terrain can add a great degree of realism for training. Diamond Visionics has deve ...
