  1. Object-Accelerated Computational Fabric

    SBC: EXOGI LLC            Topic: SB072008

    CPU technology has progressed to a point of diminishing marginal returns in its current direction. The great success of the highly pipelined sequential processor has now become a hindrance to the efficient scalability for the evolutionary escape route of cookie-cutter chip multi-processor (CMP) designs. RISC instruction sets exist because they are easy to decode and pipeline, but they have relativ ...

  2. Machine Tool Genome Project

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    This project describes research that will lead to the commercialization of the Tool Dashboard, a new technique for pre-process milling parameter selection. In this approach, dynamic models of the cutting tool and holder will be analytically coupled to spindle-machine measurements to predict the tool point dynamics. Given this information, stability lobe diagrams, which display stable and unstable ...

  3. Dynamic Error Measurement for Large Machine Tools

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    Existing machine tool metrology methods measure the quasistatic errors of a machine tool and, thus, evaluate its static positioning accuracy. Yet machine tools are dynamic, they do not stop and pause in an effort to reach a programmed position. Additionally, current techniques do not identify all of the errors, many of which significantly impact the volumetric accuracy of the machine. Almost immed ...

  4. Inexpensive, Portable Sensors for Chemical-Biological Agent Detection

    SBC: Latel Corporation            Topic: SB093013

    In modern battlespace, deployment of chemical and biological agents by our adversaries is a threat that needs to be addressed. These agents are cheap to manufacture and easily available. Their effects can be devastating to our troops. Detecting chemical and biological agents often require bulky equipment in a laboratory. Identifying the agents could take many minutes in such facilities. A more eff ...

  5. Nanometer-Precision Positioning System with 2mm x 2mm Range of Motion

    SBC: PIEZOMAX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: BMDO99013

    nPoint proposes to design and construct a closed-loop 2mm range-of-motion, 2-axis nano-positioning system with unprecedented precision and resolution. There is considerable need for such a tool in near-future nanomanufacturing, characterization, and lithography. One example is scanned-probe tip-based nanomanufacturing. As such manufacturing comes to commercial fruition, accurate long-range positi ...

  6. Functionally Graded Metallic Lattice Components (FGMLC) for Advanced Propulsion Component

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: SB082007

    ORBITEC proposes to develop functionally graded metallic lattice components for use in advanced rocket propulsion systems. The FGMLC material will utilize an internal intertwined lattice structure to join different constituents of the composite material. This lattice structure will allow a designed gradation from one material to another while maintaining each materials properties. The FGMLC will u ...

  7. Chemical and Explosive Vapor Detection in Shipping Containers with Remotely Accessed Microcantilever Array Sensors

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: SB041005

    The remarkable sensitivity, compactness, low cost, low power-consumption, scalability, and versatility of microcantilever sensors make this technology possibly the best solution for container screening. In Phase I, Nevada Nanotech Systems (NNTS) successfully demonstrated all components of a prototype sensor system for measuring the concentrations of unlawful or hazardous materials in shipping con ...

  9. A Trans-Atmospheric Turbojet Engine

    SBC: Hmx, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Mass Injection Pre-Compressor Cooling (MIPCC) is a promising technology which can permit convention jet engines, normally limited in speed and altitude, to propel aircraft to substantially higher altitudes and velocities. By injecting coolant ahead of thecompressor and using its heat of vaporization to cool inlet gasses, the engine can operate at substantially higher velocities without exceeding ...
