  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 ...

  4. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  5. Ultra High Sensitivity SWIR Methane Imaging Camera

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 861X

    Methane, is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas whose atmosphere concentration is currently over 1.7 ppm. Methane is about 21 times more potent when compared to CO2. Even though its concentration in the atmosphere is more than 200 times lower than carbon dioxide, methane is responsible for 20% of the greenhouse effect. The main natural resources for methane include wetlands, termites and the o ...

  6. Optimized CO2 Gas Sensor for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 822R

    The objective of the proposed work is to create low cost, low power sensors for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. In our Phase I effort, we showed that Dioxide Materials’ miniature CO2 sensors have the speed and sensitivity to meet NOAA’s requirements for sensing ocean carbon. The objective of the proposed work is to further develop the sensors so that they can be used directly in NOAA ...

  7. Coastal Eyes, a Multi-Mission Topographic, Current Retrieval and Debris Mapping Sensor System

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 832D

    Areté Associates proposes the Coastal Eyes, a multi-mission sensor system to respond to NOAA’s core mission objectives for coastal emergency management measurements to map land and surface water topography over coastal, waterways and fresh water regions; surface (fresh and oceans) currents, debris detections and storm surges. Areté will develop a responsive, cost-effective sensor solution, whi ...

  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 ...
