Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Arthur Gerstenfeld , Investigator
Award Amount: $300,000.00
Abstract:
This research focuses on determining the feasibility of uf using expert systems to support (rather than replace) human decision makers. we intend to show the feasibility of using expert support systems (ess) for air transportation systems.this research will concentrate on the intelligent man/… More

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF USING AN EXPERT SYSTEM TO AID THE PILOT OF GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,800.00
Abstract:
The purpose of this project is to show the feasibility of using an expert system to aid the pilot of general aviation aircraft. the need increasingly exists on smaller aircraft to perform error detection and correction and procedural assistance. issues of human factors engineering are includedin… More

THE PROJECT CONSISTS OF THREE OBJECTIVES TO BE PERFORMED IN SEQUENCE DURING THE SIX MONTHS OF PHASE I.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Arthur gerstenfeld
Award Amount: $49,400.00
Abstract:
The project consists of three objectives to be performed in sequence during the six months of phase i. the first current high technology weapon systems where at present human tutors are emphasizing skill level deficiencies. the second objective will be to select 6 cases for intelligent computer… More

EXPERT SYSTEM MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (ESMS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr Arthur Gerstenfeld
Award Amount: $49,400.00

EXPERT SYSTEM MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (ESMS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr Arthur Gerstenfeld
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
The purpose of this project is to show the feasibility of developing an expert system management system (esms). the esms would interface with the pilot on one side and interface with the other expert systems on the other side. in order to demonstrate the feasibility of the system we have divided the… More

TELEROBOTICS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: SYSTEM DESIGN ARCHITECTURE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,702.00
Abstract:
The objective of this research is to develop a reasoning and planning system capable of issuing commands to a robot. we intend to demonstrate a robot involved in a reasoning task. we will use an object-oriented approach. our plan isto work closely with the national bureau of standards, real time… More

SPEECH RECOGNITION SYSTEM FOR AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Dr arthur gerstenfeld , VICE PRESIDENT
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
This project is based on the belief that air traffic controltraining is indeed a task that could benefit greatly from the addition of speech technology. this proposal is also based on the belief that this application requires very careful integration being aware of the specific limitations and… More

A HIERARCHICAL APPROACH TO DATA FUSION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Dr arthur gerstenfeld
Award Amount: $49,798.00
Abstract:
The goal of this research project is to develop a preliminary prototype of a hierarchical system for data fusion. the system will utilize both the qualitative and judgemental reasoning process of a human expert, as well as the quantitative capabilities of most statistical and probabilistic… More

Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Arthur Gerstenfeld Ph D
Award Amount: $49,831.00

TOWARD INTELLIGENT CONTROL OF ROBOTICS FOR SPACE STATION MAINTENANCE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Arthur Gerstenfeld Ph D
Award Amount: $454,056.00
Abstract:
The objective of this project is to show the feasibility of adding learning, planning, and reasoning to telerobots for space applications. the idea is to have telerobots that have enough reasoning powers so that each individual movement does not have to be told to it. the area of space station… More

NAVAL SUPPLY CENTER ADVISORY SYSTEM (NSCAS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
