  1. GNSS Radio Occulation Receiver

    SBC: 3s Navigation (dba For            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort is to design a space-qualified dual-frequency GPS/GLONASS receiver with enhanced capabilities for atmospheric remote sounding. While such soundings have been performed using GPS-only receivers, a space-based GPS/GLONASS receiver would be superior in terms of coverage and integrity cross- checking, as well as the ability to process the unencrypted GLONASS L2 signal. This design ...

  2. Self-Calibration and Error Analysis for 2D Measurements

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    Two-dimensional measurement machines, such as microlithography and computed tomography systems, are subject to distortions in the measurement field due to imperfections in their hardware and software. Certified methods to characterize and quantify such distortions are urgently needed. An innovative self- calibrating scheme is tendered which eliminates the disadvantages of previous self-calibration ...

  4. Algorithms for Health Care Quality Management and Outcomes Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    American health care is in the midst of momentous change. Quality improvement principles are being used increasingly to enhance productivity and efficiency of health care delivery and to help contain costs. In producing patient outcomes and resource utilization measures, it is vital to control appropriately for case mix (i.e., differences in patients due, e.g., to illness severity) in the predicti ...

  5. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  6. Automated Imaging and Mapping System for AUV

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Precision underwater mapping is an important requirement of projects ranging from wreck surveys and environmental impact studies to mine clearing operations and marine science projects. Small Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) are capable platforms for mapping operations as they are easily deployed and can operate in hazardous environments. We propose the development of an Automated Imaging and ...

  7. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  8. A Digital Library of Computer-System Security Vulnerabilities

    SBC: Interconnect Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A study will determine the feasibility of using a digital-library system for computer-system vulnerability information. The system model will draw upon advances being made in multi-agency NII digital library research projects, library science techniques being developed for digital media, and standardized WWW technologies. Technical objectives include determining how best to: 1) catalog and class ...

  10. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...
