  1. A Real-time Demonstration of the Smart Flow System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to further the development of NIST's Smart Space technology and demonstrate that the integrated system facilitates the interaction of persons with limited abilities in a meeting room environment. Such a demonstration will serve to simulate interest in applying Smart Space technology in real world interaction. Two individuals enter the meeting room laptop ...

  2. Magnetic Methods for On-Line Non-Destructive Mechanical property Measurement

    SBC: Magnetronix Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A pressing challenge in automotive, aerospace, and other manufacturing industry is the ability to measure the mechanical properties of formed metal and alloy components on a part-by-part basis. We propose to develop a non-destructive testing system suitable for rapid on-line measurement of critical mechanical properties of steel parts as they are being produced. Our approach is based on measuremen ...

  3. Observing Station Metadata System

    SBC: MAYUR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    Mayur Tech demonstrated a prototype web based system for submitting and storing observational station metadata for NOAA NWS programs during phase 1. We propose to develop this prototype into a complete metadata operational system leading to the development of commercial tools in phase 2. Mayur Tech plans to enhance the current CSSA metadata system, and add new functionality to NWS and FAA sites. T ...

  5. Diode Pumped Nd:LuAlO3 Laser

    SBC: MetaStable Instruments, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The optical pumping of helium at 1083 nm is proving useful in applications involving magnetometry, polarized electron sources and neutron spin filters, but existing sources at 1083 nm are limited in efficiency, lifetime, reliability, compactness and power. The crystal laser material Nd:LuAlO3 (neodymium doped lutetium orthoaluminate) has ideal spectroscopic properties, but previous growths have d ...

  6. Accessible Virtual Reality for Machinist Training Modules

    SBC: Microcompatibles, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will emphasize outfitting a virtual classroom and creating a skills (CNC) oriented training program. The virtual classroom will involve contextual learning using a realistic simulation of the manufacturing environment. The simulation will have all of the characteristics of a machine shop, but will allow the learner to explore and experiment ("discover") in ways that would not be pr ...

  7. Ultrasonic Inspection for Neck/Shoulder Cracks in Aluminum Gas Cylinders

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    Recent catastrophic failures of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) aluminum gas cylinders and similar air tanks have generated the need for a highly reliable, low cost inspection method to insure the integrity of these tanks. The failures of these tanks have been the result of crack formation in the neck and shoulder area. The cracks originate from the interior wall and can re ...

  8. A SENSITIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGING DETECTOR FOR COLD NEUTRONS

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL PHOTOSTIMULABLE PHOSPHOR IMAGING TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED TO REPLACE BULKY COUNTING SYSTEMS CURRENTLY USED IN NEUTRON DIFFRACTION AND SCATTERING INVESTIGATIONS. THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE PROPOSED DETECTOR CAN BE VARIED TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO MOVE THE DETECTION SYSTEM CLOSER TO THE SCATTERING SAMPLE, THEREBY INCREASING THE NEUTRONS AVAILABLE FOR DETECTION AND SHRINKING THE SIZE OF THE EXPERIME ...

  9. A Micro-Electroformed Cross Capacitor (MECC)

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Utilizing new hard, etch resistant photoresists derived from epoxy formulations such as SU-8 to serve as the mold for electroless metaldeposition for MEMS electroforming techniques, a fully micro-miniaturized cross capacitor can be realized. A Micro-Electroformed Cross Capacitor (MECC) is built by electroforming high aspect metals atop the substrate. A Phase 1 effort would model MECC performance, ...

  10. Portable Aerosol Lidar

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An inexpensive aerosol lidar is proposed by combining inexpensive fiber coupled diode laser and photon counting detection technology for air quality monitoring in metropolitan area. The combination of inexpensive light source and high sensitivity photon detection technology developed in the "Micro Pulse Lidar" project will result in a rugged and affordable lidar system for air pollution monitori ...
