  1. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  8. Next Generation Neutron Detector for 3He Replacement

    SBC: Innovative American Technology Inc.            Topic: 1012

    IAT has developed the 6LiFZnS(Ag) neutron detector for replacemen of 3He detectors providing neutron efficiency and gamma rejection comparable to 3He tube detectors. To increase neutron efficiency and reduce gamma events in our current detector, we propose the reduction of the ZnS(Ag)scintillation material to nano particles to enhance light transmission across the 6LiFZnS(Ag)layer.  To furthe ...

  10. A novel enhanced-performance low-cost receiver and modified modulation scheme for WWVB

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    The development of a greatly enhanced receiver for the WWVB signal is targeted, as well as possible modifications in the transmitted signal, which would both offer significant improvements in its effective coverage. This is to be achieved while allowing the replacement of the bulky, expensive, ferrite-based antenna, commonly used in the receiver, with a novel lower-cost antenna. Furthermore, the p ...
