  1. Analyzing Human Dimensions of Software Engineering Processes

    SBC: APPLIED VISIONS, INC.            Topic: SB172007

    The Secure Decisions team will conduct research to: 1) determine how human dimensions of software engineering (SE) processes influence software security and quality; and 2) develop mechanisms for measuring these relationships in both open source and closed (private) development environments. The human dimensions of interest are: characteristics and behaviors of developers and development teams; en ...

  3. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: None

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface for the Universal Robot E-Series that allows an user to label arbitrary 3 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. MINIATURE ELECTRON BEAM ACCELERATOR INCORPORATING ELECTRON SOURCE AND HIGH GRADIENT ACCELERATION MECHANISM

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

    LIGHT WEIGHT, HIGH ENERGY CHARGED PARTICLE BEAM PRODUCTION IS FEASIBILE WHEN THE ACCELERATION POTENTIAL IS GENERATED FROM AN INDUCTIVE ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM. AN INTENSIVE, COPIOUS X-RAY RADIATION SOURCE IS THEREFORE OBTAINABLE SIMULTANEOUSLY THROUGH THE HIGH-CURRENT ELECTRON BEAM AND METAL TARGET INTERACTION. USE OF A PLASMA OPENING SWITCH IS PROPOSED FOR OPENING THE INDUCTIVE CIRCUIT BECAUSE IT I ...

  8. MICROWAVE NDE SENSOR FOR IN-PROCESS CONTROL IN THE MANUFACTURE OF CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES

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

    THE INTELLIGENT PROCESSING OF MATERIALS IS A NOVEL CONCEPT IN MATERIALS PROCESSING IN WHICH INFORMATION FROM REAL TIME, IN-SITU MICROSTRUCTURAL SENSORS AND PROCESS MODELS ARE COMBINED WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPROACHES TO CONTROL A MATERIALS PROCESS. THE INSITU SENSORS ARE A KEY TO THIS TECHNOLOGY SINCE INFORMATION ABOUT THE "STATE" OF THE MATERIAL MUST BE ASCERTAINED. THEREFORE, THIS PROPOSA ...

  10. MAGNETIC IMAGING SEEKER

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN OBJECT WILL ELECTRICAL AND/OR MAGNETIC PROPERTIES IN THE PRESENCE OF A MAGNETIC FIELD WILL PRODUCE SOME SIGNATURE OF ITS PRESENCE OR ITS MOTION, WHICH COULD BE DECIPHERED FROM A PRECISE MEASUREMENT OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD. MAGNETIC SENSORS OF EXTREMELY HIGH SENSITIVITY ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. SQUID DEVICES HAVE A SENSITIVITY BETTER THAN 10(-10) GAUSS HZ1/2. INDUCTION COIL MAGNETOMETERS CAN BE DE ...
