  1. High-Throughput Low-Cost Manufacturing of Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: 90103

    New shape-engineered iron-based microscopic contrast agents (MCAs) for magnetic resonance imaging promise to increase diagnostic accuracy while reducing side effects, and enhance scientists’ ability to track stem cells. Currently, techniques used for making multispectral microscale contrast agent particles are cost prohibitive. In Phase I, an innovative technique (employing template-guided elect ...

  2. Resonant Scan Lens for Scanning Beam LIDAR

    SBC: z-senz LLC            Topic: 90501

    The objective of this Phase II project is to research, develop, and commercialize a resonant scan lens (RSL) for use in a resonant light detection and ranging (R-LIDAR) distance sensor. R-LIDAR uses a resonant optomechanical system to generate a beam scan. While resonant optomechanical systems produce high-speed and large field-of-view (FOV) scans from a miniature form factor, the beam scans lack ...

  3. High-Throughput Low-Cost Manufacturing of Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: 9010368R

    Scalable manufacturing of micro-engineered MRI contrast agents has the potential to increase the specificity and resolution of imaging techniques, while reducing morbidity. Currently, techniques used for making such particles are expensive and labor intensive. In Phase I, Weinberg Medical Physics will validate techniques for rapid, massively parallel fabrication of microscale contrast agents (incl ...

  4. High Performance Beam Scanning Using a Resonant Scan Lens

    SBC: XSB INC.            Topic: 9050140TT

    The objective of this project is to demonstrate a resonant scan lens (RSL) that increases the uniformity of beam scans projected from resonant optomechanical systems. While resonant optomechanical systems generate high-speed beam scans, large mechanical displacements, and robust operation from miniature form factors, scans projected from such systems lack uniformity across the field-of-view (FOV). ...

  5. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: CARR ASTRONAUTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 843WP

    Phase II of the New METSAT Display project will produce a working beta version of the Earth Imaging product customized for NWS/NOAA as outlined in the Phase I proof of concept. This product will ingest imagery from a data source (in this case a web service of NOAA satellite imagery) and display it accurately on a globe of the Earth. Vector data such as roads, cities, towns, counties, states, etc. ...

  6. Climate Impact Visualization Tools using 3D City for Community-Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 93

    To build a climate-smart and resilient nation, we need to foster a climate-literate public that understands its vulnerabilities to a changing climate and makes informed decisions. A core component of this challenge is to develop simple, intuitive and high-impact visualizations of climate data--data that is and will be made available through the President’s Climate Data Initiative--for education ...

  7. New METSAT Display Service for Weather-Ready Nation

    SBC: CARR ASTRONAUTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 84

    NOAA has identified a problem with the display and usability of satellite imagery on NWS websites. This proposal provides analysis of the feasibility and usability of a proposed system to address this concern. Our goal in the project is to create a heuristically sound conceptual design and tool set for display and interaction with satellite imagery on the NWS site. The project will also explore ...

  8. An Automated Lapping Apparatus and Process for High-Precision Random Profile Roughness Specimen Fabrication

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 9020268TT

    The measurement and quality control for smooth engineering surfaces are becoming more and more important in modern science and technology due to their important engineering functions and high production costs. NIST has frequently received requests from U.S. industry to provide Standard Reference Material (SRM) high-precision, random profile roughness specimens to support smooth surface measurement ...

  9. High-Sensitivity, Low-Cost, Surface-Acoustic-Wave Based Microscale Thermogravimetric Analyzer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To meet NIST’s need for development of a new electronic system for microscale thermogravimeter nanoparticle analysis, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) proposes a high-sensitivity, high-accuracy, low-cost, surface-acoustic-wave based microscale thermogravimetric analyzer (SAW-µ-TGA). The proposed approach is based on XII-developed surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensor technology, which is capable of ...
