  1. Multi-Agent Prognostics Health and Usage Monitoring (Multi-PHUM)

    SBC: Intelligent Inference Systems Corporation            Topic: A103

    A prognostic system needs to separate nominal component behavior from the faulty ones even in the cases when those behaviors are similar. Advanced pattern recognition techniques are required to separate nominal and faulty input-output component data vectors in a complex high-dimensional space. We propose to develop the Multi-agent Prognostic Health and Usage Monitoring (Multi-PHUM) and test it i ...

  2. Silicon Photodiode Detectors with Integrated Filters for VUV Solar Observations

    SBC: International Radiation Detectors, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Fabrication of stable, nearly 100% internal carrier collection efficiency silicon photodiodes (AXUV diodes) for 1 nm to 600 nm photons was successfully demonstrated by us several years ago. Owing to their excellent characteristics, these devices are being used by NIST as transfer standards in 5 nm to 250 nm range and aboard SOHO, SNOE and TIMED instruments for the EUV solar spectrum studies. Alt ...

  3. An Innovative Raster-Mirror Optical Detection System for CCD Camera Bistatic Lidar

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 812

    An innovative optical system with 500X higher ¿tendu and spatial resolution will be designed for CCD-based bistatic lidar. A 100¿ vertical field of view is required to image the laser beam from the ground through the boundary layer, but only a few degrees are required in the horizontal direction. The proposed design is based on dividing the vertical field of view into N sectors, using 1D rasteri ...

  4. An autonomous gas chromatograph for measurement of green house gases in airborne applications

    SBC: Sonoma Technology, Inc.            Topic: 815

    An automated, high precision, lightweight gas chromatograph, capable of measuring hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) with a fast duty cycle (1 sample per two minutes) will be designed and built. The detector used for the chromatograph will be an electron capture detector with sensitivity enhanced by addition of nitrous oxide (N2O) reagent gas. The instrum ...

  5. Superconducting Phase Reference


    We propose to develop the technology to address the need for better harmonic reference devices in order to support the field of non-linear device characterization. Superconducting delay lines can be used to generate nonlinear harmonic signals with a known magnitude and phase relationship to the fundamental signal. In order to make such a reference device, we will need to make superconducting delay ...

  6. Rugged Optical Carbon Monoxide Field Analyzer

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 814

    Detection of carbon monoxide (CO) is an essential element of the North American Carbon Program. CO detection is challenging because of the low, 100 parts-per-billion (ppb), concentrations in the atmosphere and the required 10 ppb precision. Vista Photonics proposes to develop novel optical sensing technology that will provide unambiguous carbon monoxide detection with better than 10 ppb precisio ...

  7. Automated Captioning

    SBC: Automatic Sync            Topic: N/A

    Captioning greatly facilitates participation in mainstream society for the hearing impaired. Though enabling software can help, captioning has remained a labor¿intensive and time-consuming process. Commercial applications of automated speech recognition have typically focused on dictation and speech-interactive services, but little effort has been directed towards applying speech technology to th ...

  8. A computer assisted process for developing curriculum plans tightly aligned to state assessment standards

    SBC: Corridor Training Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Low school achievement presents a profoundly serious national crisis affecting, not only the lives of students, but the ability of our nation and our people to compete in an increasingly competitive world. This research takes direct aim at this problem by developing a computer assisted process for constructing useable school curriculum plans that will give teachers usable and practical daily guida ...

  9. KidSystems- An On-line information system for school-linked service programs- supporting student achievement, safety, and development

    SBC: Hatchuel Tabernik and Associates            Topic: N/A

    Hatchuel Tabernik & Associates proposes to field test a new, on-line database service [KidSystems] for school-linked and school-day programs — supporting the accurate and timely measurement of student attendance, service provision, and outcome measures across a variety of supportive and educational services. KidSystems provides district, school-day, after school staff, evaluators and administrat ...

  10. Automate school district's human resources and finance operations using electronic forms of digital signitures.

    SBC: Infomosaic Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Paper forms are labor intensive, time consuming, and prone to error. In order to address the shortcomings associated with paper forms, which the school districts use today, Infomosaic proposes to implement an electronic form framework. The framework is intended to allow any family of transactions currently carried out within county school districts to be converted from traditional paper to a compl ...
