  4. Multipath Reducing GPS Receiver and Antenna

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to design an improved GPS receiver and GPS antenna to reduce installation-dependent errors due to multipath. To develop the receiver, we will prototype and implement various interference cancellation algorithms on a software-defined radio simulation toolkit and hardware testbed. We will design an antenna complementary to this receiver that will suppress signals ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Large Solid Angle X-Ray Detector for Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiant Detector Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    One of the standard analytical tools on almost all electron microscopes (EM) is an energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) detector used for chemical analysis. However, there are many limitations with the current generation of EDS detectors for EM. The best potential for achieving larger detector active areas, superb energy resolution and an order of magnitude higher count rate compared with co ...

  9. Development of a High Sensitivity Laser-Induced Incandescence Instrument for Characterizing Soot and Carbanaceous Particles

    SBC: Artium Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    A high sensitivity laser-induced incandescence system is proposed for the detailed characterization of environmental soot. Specifically, innovative approaches have been proposed to (1) reduce the lower detection limit of soot volume fraction and increase the overall measurement range by an order of magnitude from what is currently achievable, and (2) provide PM particle size and number density mea ...

  10. Critical Data Processing for Chemical Warfare Simulant Field Testing- Advanced Data Fusion

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: CBD05110

    To properly measure (and understand) the performance of a standoff detector, properties of the challenge cloud must be known. Meteorological models, such as HPAC and VLSTRACK, have proven to be reasonably good tools for predicting cloud properties. However, a problem with these tools is that they deliver ensemble averages and may not describe a specific cloud to the detail required. The Dugway ...
