  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. A Miniatruized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year. To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered. As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to develop an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use. The technical innovation will be to develop a reversible ...

  3. Detecting Intrusion from Network Anomalies (DINA)

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal introduces the Detecting Intrusion from Network Anomalies (DINA) system, which uses data mining tools to automatically detect anomalous behaviors that can be related to undesired intrusion and/or attacks upon computer networks, as well as other use patterns which may indicate behaviors which are non-hostile but still problematic. The application will make use of Ensembles of Decision ...

  4. Optimized Soft Magnetic Electrodes for Ultra-Sensitive Magnetic Tunnel Junction Field Sensors

    SBC: Micro Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project aims to develop a new class of low-field magnetic sensors based on magnetic tunnel junctions with magnesium oxide (MgO) tunnel barriers. The phase 1 effort aims to maximize the high-frequency sensitivity of the MgO-MTJ sensor devices by optimizing the magnetic characteristics of the free electrode. By using new and novel combinations of magnetic materials, in conjunction with pro ...

  5. CB Sensor Network Architecture Development Tool for Improved Probability of Cloud Intercept

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD07108

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to continue development of a software tool that is capable of defining the selection and placement of a constellation of standoff and point sensors for the protection of base facilities and forces deployed in the field. The network will be defined using an algorithm that optimizes the collective performance of the sensors as a function of deployment need, geography, ...

  6. Low-Cost Integrated Multi-Channel Microwave Radiometer Receivers for Hurricane Surface Wind Structure Measurement

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: 837

    This proposal describes the development of compact radiometer receiver modules intended for use in hurricane wind speed imaging radiometers and low cost single beam ocean wind speed sensors. The Hurricane Imaging Radiometer (HIRad), currently under development by a team of government, university and industrial partners, will require ten high performance receiver channels, which must be compact an ...

  7. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    The NOAA strategic vision is to help realized ¿an informed society that uses a comprehensive understanding of the role of the oceans, coasts, and atmosphere in the global ecosystem to make the best social and economic decisions.¿ Never is this vision more applicable as it is to tropical cyclones (TCs). These systems pose one of the largest natural threats to our society and economy. The NO ...

  8. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: CBD08104

    Spectral Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a prototype sensor for real-time trace-level analysis of complex multicomponent gas mixtures, specifically those containing Chemical Weapon (CW) agents and interferents. The instrument is based on high power quantum cascade lasers and photocoustic spectroscopy detection. Advanced detection algorithms take advantage of wide spectral coverage to provide hi ...

  9. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Doctrine for employment of canines in a CBRN environment has evolved into a Collective Protection approach. Providing COLPRO has several very significant implications for Canine kennels and shelters: „X The outer surface of the structure must be CB agent impervious „X The outer surface of the structure must resist effects of the decontamination process „X The system must provide the animal ...

  10. Low-Loss, FemtoEtch, in-Fiber Fabry-Perot 860-nm Optical Filter

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Most commercial filters have significant loss even in the passband of the filter. This problem is further exacerbated when the filter must be integrated or inserted within an optical fiber. Translume has developed over the last few years means and expertise to micromachine single-mode fiber using a combination of femtosecond laser pulses and highly anisotropic hydrofluoric acid etching. We propose ...
