Smart Manufacturing Workflow Environment
Nimbis Services will provide an open workflow environment that supports the sequential execution of third-party apps using networked information-based modeling and data analytic technologies to integrate manufacturing intelligence across an entire manufacturing ecosystem. The result will optimize plant operation by providing management alternatives in the right context, at the right time and to the right user.
High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples
Polaris Sensor Technologies will design a device that integrates the established polarimetric architectures of division of aperture, focal plane and time to yield a multiplexed data collection method that simultaneously characterizes samples across all relevant dimensions. This approach, in conjunction with proposed dedicated data processing hardware, promises to open up the technique to additional applications such as thin-film process control.
Three-Dimensional Test Materials for Solid Supports
The proposed structural studies are of great value in developing a family of hybrid controlled pore glass (CPG) products that could dramatically reduce the manufacturing costs of several important classes of advanced pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals.
Digital Micromirror Device Detection Scheme for Transmission Scanning Electron Microscopy
The novel detection system proposed will use a digital micromirror device for precise selection of any combination of small angular portions over a large area of the diffraction plane and will easily transition between the production of bright field and dark field images and transmission diffraction patterns.
Advanced Tactile Sensing for Dexterous Robot Hands in Industrial Automation and Assembly
SynTouch will develop measures of robotic grasper dexterity and use them to evaluate new tactile sensory technology with the older tactile sensors of the Schunk Dexterous Hand. The biomimetic nature of the BioTac sensor and its biologically inspired reflexive behaviors will lead to a new level of dexterity, enabling advanced applications in industrial automation and assembly.
High-Sensitivity, Low-Cost, Surface-Acoustic-Wave Based Microscale Thermogravimetric Analyzer for Nanoparticle Characterization
X-wave Innovations (XII) proposes a high-sensitivity, high-accuracy, low-cost, surface-acoustic-wave based microscale thermogravimetric analyzer (SAW--TGA) for nanoparticles. The proposed approach is based on XII-developed surface acoustic wave sensor technology, which can simultaneously provide accurate temperature and mass change measurements at elevated temperatures and in real time.
