  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 ...

  3. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  5. Coral Tissue Engineering for Mass-production of Coral for the Recreational Marine Aquarium Trade and Conservation Industry

    SBC: Haereticus Environmental Laboratory            Topic: 812

      Over 10 million coral species a year are traded in the +$100 million/year ornamental-recreational aquaria industry. Over ninety percent of commercial coral specimens come from some form of mass harvesting of wild corals from coral reefs. This can have a detrimental impact to coral reefs. We invented a method of perpetual propagation of corals through tissue engineering.  ...

  6. An Integrated System for In-Field Detection of Microbial Contaminants in Coastal Waters

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 811

    NOAA places a high priority in working with state and territory coastal resource managers to manage and conserve these vital resources. Microbial contamination adversely impacts coastal water quality, and poor water quality has negative economic, health and environmental effects. Therefore, the advancement and implementation of rapid and automated methods for monitoring and identifying m ...

  7. High Char Yield Multifunctional Textile Finishes

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for advances in non toxic treatments for cover and barrier fabrics. Since polybrominated materials have been banned in many European countries and the production of a number of brominated additives terminated in the U.S. as well, future technologies must focus on non-halogenated treatments. In general, non-halogenated treatments (phosphates and borates) are not durable to aqueous sol ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. DIVER MONITORING SYSTEM FOR PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE MONITORING OF DIVER PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIABLE, SUCH AS HEART AND RESPIRATORY RATES, MUSCLE FATIGUE AND BODY CORE TEMPERATURE, IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE BECAUSE DIVERS OCCASIONALLY EXCEED SAFE PHYSIOLOGICAL LIMITS. DIVERS ARE CALLED ONTO PERFORM TASKS WHICH REQUIRE A HIGH LEVEL OF EXERTION, OFTEN UNDER UNFAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, AN INDIVIDUAL CAN EXPERIENCE FATIG ...

  10. MOTION COMPENSATING SCALE

    SBC: General Oceanics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A SCALE FOR WEIGHING LOADS OF UP TO 100 KG. ON MOVING PLATFORMS SUCH AS SHIPS. THE PROBLEM IN THESE SITUATIONS IS THAT ACCELERATION FORCES GENERATED BY THE MOTION OF THE VEHICLE CONSTANTLY VARY THE APPARENT WEIGHT OF ANY OBJECT RESTING ON THE SCALE. THE SOLUTION PROPOSED HERE IS TO USE AN ELECTRONIC SCALE AND COMBINE ITS ELECTRICAL OUTPUT SIGNAL WITH SIGNALS F ...
