  1. 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 ...

  4. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Novel Bioaerosol Concentrator/Sampler for Enhanced Biosensor Performance

    SBC: ITI            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a robust, generic, front-end, bio-sampler that when combined with either a wet or dry biological detector, will result in more accurate and rapid detection of hazardous airborne biological agents. While most current systems require samples to be delivered in a fluid for analysis, emerging dry detection technologi ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Novel Linearizer for Wireless Integrated Circuits

    SBC: MixSig Labs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop methods for wireless integrated circuits. The linearization method can be summarized as a "bad amplifier" is added to a "good amplifier" to form a "much better amplifier." This new technology enables complete implementation on a single integrated circuit, leading to cellular radio and wireless systems with lower cost, small ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Use of Histone-Like Protein to Assess the Health of Rainbow Trout

    SBC: Norcarex Bio Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to explore the novel use of an immune protein for measuring stress in rainbow trout. No convenient tests are currently available to measure stress, a condition that often leads to disease. Accurate stress measurements will dramatically reduce disease losses, the major cause of economic losses in salmonid aquaculture. HLP-1 is ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Bioremediation of Chlorinated Solvents in Saturated, Low Permeability Soils

    SBC: North Wind Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II Project proposes to develop an innovative solution to the the problem of chlorinated solvent contamination in variably saturated, low permeability soils. Prior Phase I work has demonstrated that: 1) chitin is an effective electron donor for stimulating biodegradation of chlorinated solvents, 2) that chitin enhances bioavailability of the so ...
