  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. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  6. Machine Tool Operational Visualizer

    SBC: CNC Connection Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CNC machine tools continue to be a critical part of manufacturing; yet, a majority of the users still do not have a comprehension of how the systems function internal to the control system. With the current capability and cost benefits of personal computers and multimedia tools, the opportunity to create an educational tool to display the inner workings of the CNC system is feasible. This proposal ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Diamond Indenter Finishing Machine

    SBC: Dia-Tool Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Dia-Tool proposes herein a new manufacturing machine that will combine the processing steps of shaping the indenter and the measurement of the resulting cone into a single automated Diamond Indenter Finishing Machine. The images of the edges of the indenter cone are digitized through an imaging array and directly stored in computer memory. The indenter cone images are then transformed by image ana ...

  9. Use of Very High Frequency Plasmas to Prepare a-SiGe Alloy Photovoltaic

    SBC: ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The program objective is to investigate the feasibility of using a very high frequency (VHF) [70 MHz] plasma technique to produce high efficiency a-SiGe:H solar cells at relatively high deposition rates. Using the VHF technique, high quality a-SiGe:H material is expected due to enhanced low energy ion bombardment of the growing film surface which has been found to be beneficial to the growth of th ...

  10. 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 ...
