  1. User-Friendly 3D Environmental Profiler AUV

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 813

    We propose Ranger ES, a low cost, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for three-dimensional profiling and water samplings of chemical, physical, and biological parameters of oceanic and fresh waters. The AUV will be programmable by point and click to analyze a volume of water continuously for the selected parameters. After returning for pickup after a day¿s run, it will download its data into a ...

  2. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  3. The Design of a Low Cost, Rapidly Deployable, Sirborne Harmful Algal Bloom Identification Technology (HABIT) Sensor

    SBC: Aethon Intelligence, LLC            Topic: 834

    The optimal design for a rapidly-deployable, airborne HAB identification sensor requires the determination of the minimum spectral, spatial, dynamic range, and deployment capabilities necessary to achieve the goal of operational detection. This sensor must be capable of rendering a positive identification, with a low false alarm rate, in optical shallow waters, where the bottom is visible in the ...

  4. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  5. Active Mixing of Polymers in a Dispensing Head

    SBC: nScrypt, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A method to take three polymers with varying viscosities and mixing those polymers together at the point of interest or more specifically through a micro dispensing nozzle, is being proposed. An active mixing scheme to ensure proper mixing at the pen tip is a feasible approach to this problem. The materials being mixed will not only range in viscosity but also in particle loading, which will be ha ...

  6. Ultra-High Vacuum Compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer

    SBC: PARALLAX RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    Parallax Research, Inc. proposes to build an Ultra-High Vacuum compatible Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer (WDS) that can be used on small spot Auger, XPS, TEM and FESEM analytical instruments for elemental analysis. The effort draws upon Parallax's experience in designing WDS systems for Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) and for XRF. This new type of x-ray spectrometer will eliminate th ...
