  1. Production of NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom for Magnetic Resonance Imagaing (MRI)

    SBC: Phantom Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    his project involves the commercialization of the breast phantom designed by NIST and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) for quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The breast phantom consists of two independent phantoms, one focused on diffusion MRI measurements and the other focused on accurate measurements of fat and fibroglandular tissue properties. The proposed phantom is o ...

  5. A Low-Cost Hybrid Ultrasonic-Radio Frequency (RF) Sensor System for Characterization of Composite Materials

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), is developing a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-radio frequency (RF) sensor (HURFS) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system to assess most structural issues while simultaneously providing feedback on the layer thickness and RF properties of composite, non-conductive materials in multi-layer stacks. The HURFS approach combines the u ...

  8. A Novel Orthogonal Chaos-Based Radar Waveform with Optimized Receiver Filtering

    SBC: POC TECH GROUP LLC            Topic: MDA12002

    To achieve the goal of finding radar signal waveforms for supporting target information and deducing sensor-independent attributes, we propose to use a novel chaos-based orthogonal radar signal waveform with matched-filter-like (or adaptive) pulse compression processing for improving target detection. An open-source-and open-architecture prototype platform is proposed to enable performance analys ...
