  2. THE ROBOT DEFENSE SYSTEMS (RDS) PROWLER IS AN ALL-TERRAIN PLATFORM WITH SOME AUTONOMOUS AND EXCELLENT REMOTE CONTROL CAPABILITIES.

    SBC: Robot Defense System, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ROBOT DEFENSE SYSTEMS (RDS) PROWLER IS AN ALL-TERRAIN PLATFORM WITH SOME AUTONOMOUS AND EXCELLENT REMOTE CONTROL CAPABILITIES. A PROTOTYPE EXISTS AND ADVANCED MODELS ARE SCHEDULED FOR MID-SUMMER 1984 DELIVERY. RD PROPOSES THAT PROWLER BE THE PLATFORM FOR ALL THREE WEAPON SYSTEMS. FOR ANTI-TANK CAPABILITY, RDS IS CONSIDERING TOW, DRAGON, AND MAMBA. THE 7.62MM GATTLING MINIGUN IS THE PROPOSED MA ...

  4. TACTILE SENSOR STUDY

    SBC: Command Control, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A GENERAL PURPOSE TACTILE SENSOR CAPABLE OF IDENTIFYING THE TEXTURE, COMPLIANCE, AND SURFACE FEATURES OF AN OBJECT. THE TACTILE SENSOR WILL CONSIST OF A PIEZOELECTRIC POLYMER MATERIAL WHICH GENERATES AN ELECTRICAL SIGNAL IN RESPONSE TO AN APPLIED FORCE. THE SENSOR WILL BE DESIGNED TO MOVE ACROSS THE OBJECT BEING EXAMINED, AND T ...

  5. SEMICONDUCTING TRANSITION METAL SILICIDES FOR ELECTRO-OPTIC VLSI INTERCONNECTS

    SBC: Colorado Research Development            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS A FUNDAMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF SEMICONDUCTING TRANSITION METAL SILICIDES OF POTENTIAL UTILITY AS ACTIVE MATERIALS FOR ELECTRO-OPTIC INTERCONNECTS IN SILICONMICROELECTRONICS. THIN FILMS OF CRSI2, MNSI2, AND IRSI1.75 WILL BE PREPARED BY ION BEAM SPUTTER DEPOSITION OF THE METALS ONTO SINGLE CRYSTAL SILICON WAFERS, FOLLOWED BY FURNACE REACTION WITH THE ...

  6. OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS

    SBC: Management Support Technology            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTIVE PSYCHOLOGY IS A FORMAL REPRESENTATION SYSTEM THAT HAS ANTICIPATED THE TIME WHEN THE BEHAVIOR OF THE COMPUTER WOULD EMULATE THAT OF A PERSON. BECAUSE OF THIS, IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SERVE AS THE BASIS FOR THE CRITERIA BY WHICH THE PERFORMANCE OF "EXPERT SYSTEM" AND OTHER ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SOFTWARE CAN BE EVALUATED AND DIRECTLY COMPARED WITH OTHER PROGRAMS AND THE PERFORMANCE OF A ...

  7. UNIQUE HAS A NOVEL APPROACH TO THE DESIGN OF A RELIABLE, ENERGY EFFICIENT FLYWHEEL DEVICE.

    SBC: UQM Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    UNIQUE HAS A NOVEL APPROACH TO THE DESIGN OF A RELIABLE, ENERGY EFFICIENT FLYWHEEL DEVICE. FROM TEST RESULTS OF EARLY PROTOTYPES, WE HAVE DETERMINED THAT A HIGH EFFICIENCY MOTOR/ALTERNATOR IN COMBINATION WITH THE FLYWHEEL/ROTOR OPERATING IN A SEALED VACUUM CONTAINER WITH ONLY ELECTRICAL INPUT AND OUTPUT CAN OVERCOME THE INEFFICIENCIES GENERALLY ASSOCIATED WITH MECHANICALLY GEARED DEVICES. AT THE H ...

  8. OPTICAL INTERCONNECTION TECHNIQUES USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT AIMS TO EXPLOIT THE HIGH-SPEED ELECTRO-OPTIC PROPERTIES OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS (FLCS) TO MAKE OPTICAL CROSSBAR SWITCHES. THESE SWITCHES WOULD ALLOW LARGE NUMBERS (HUNDREDSTO THOUSANDS) OF INPUT LIGHT BEAMS MODULATED AT GHZ RATES TO BE CONNECTED IN ANY POSSIBLE ONE-TO-ONE PATTERN TO AN EQUALLY LARGE NUMBER OF OUTPUTS. THE PROPOSED SWITCH GEOMETRIES PROMISE THAT ONLY A ...

  9. APPLICATION OF ADAPTIVE NEURAL NETWORKS

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO IDENTIFY SPECIFIC TACTICAL AVIONICS APPLICATIONS WHICH COULD BENEFIT FROM THE SPECIAL INFORMATION-PROCESSING CAPABILITIES OF ADAPTIVE NEURAL NETWORKS. FOR SPECIFIC TACTICAL APPLICATIONS, A TRADE-OFF ANALYSIS OF SPECIFIC NEURAL NETWORK ARCHITECTURES WILL BE CONDUCTED WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF SELECTING THE MOST PROMISING ARCHITECTURES. A PHASE II PLAN WILL BE P ...

  10. SILICON INTEGRATED CIRCUIT/FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL HYBRID SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK AIMS TO DEVELOP NOVEL, HIGH-PERFORMANCE SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS (SLMS) BY JOINING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS (FLCS), A FAST, LOW-VOLTAGE, LOW-POWER ELECTRO-OPTIC MATERIAL, WITH SILICON INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (ISC). THE RESULTING SLMS MAY BE EITHER ELECTRONICALLY OR OPTICALLY ADDRESSED, HAVE FRAME RATES FROM 10 KHZ (PRESENT) TO 10 MHZ (FUTURE), AND CAN BE USED TO MODULATE OPTICAL ...
