  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 ...

  4. WS-BD Conformant Handheld Multi-biometric Acquisition System

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: 9010477TT

    Secure trusted biometric validation of identity has never been more important. The increase in global terrorism, unfettered identity theft and new legislation requiring multi-factor authentication are a few of the driving factors. The biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in mobile computing. Millions of new mobile devices ar ...

  5. Inline Material Electrical Characterization Sensor (IMECS)

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is no capability to rapidly assess the electrical properties of nanofiber films during manufacturing and prepregging process. Continuous monitoring of these films will guide the U.S. nanofiber manufacturing industry in optimizing and increasing the yield rate with proper process optimization and avoid any inconsistency in the process and the cost with associated waste material. To address th ...

  7. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Low Salinity, Inc.            Topic: 922F

    The current emphasis in fish nutrition is fish meal replacement with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. We propose to focus specifically upon the protein quality of these alternate protein sources and its potential impacts on marine fish production. Animal byproduct meals created through the rendering industry are widely utilized as i ...

  8. Buoy Guard System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: 932W

    McQ will develop a complete conceptual design for a Buoy Guard System (BGS). This system will detect the presence of intruders at and on the buoy. It will initiate deterrent actions to persuade and force the intruders away from the buoy. It will also collect imagery and other data about the intruders and about their activities associated with the buoy. This data, along with the basic warning w ...

  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 ...
