  1. USE OF NEURAL NETS IN PREDICTING PERSONNEL ATTRITION

    SBC: Intech Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE APPLICATION OF NEURAL NETWORK TECHNIQUES TO PREDICTING PERSONNEL ATTRITION CAN HAVE SEVERAL ADVANTAGES OVER CONVENTIONAL APPROACHES SUCH AS TIME SERIES METHODS AND ECONOMETRIC MODELS. THE POWER OF THE NEURAL NETWORK APPROACH HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED BY THEIR ABILITY TO REPRESENT NONLINEAR MAPPING NETWORKS, AND TO SUCCESSFULLY MANAGE MULTIVARIATE DATA. THIS PHASE I PROGRAM WILL IDENTIFY AND CHARAC ...

  3. SOLUBLE CONDUCTING POLYMERS FOR EMI SHIELDING COMPOSITES

    SBC: Gumbs Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADDRESSING THE NEED FOR LIGHT-WEIGHT CORROSION RESISTANT MATERIALS FOR EMI SHIELDING, THE NOVEL TECHNOLOGY PROPOSED HEREIN UTILIZES SOLUBLE CONDUCTING (SEMICONDUCTING) POLYMERS DEVELOPED IN GUMB'S LABORATORIES FOR UNRELATED APPLICATIONS. THESE POLYMERS HAVE 6% W/W OR HIGHER SOLUBILITY IN ORGANIC SOLVENTS AND BULK CONDUCTIVITIES AS HIGH AS 2,000 S/CM (DATA PRESENTED HEREIN). STABILITY, DURABILITY ( ...

  5. PRODUCTION AND COATING OF PURE BORON POWDERS

    SBC: Aerochem Research            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PROCESS IS PROPOSED TO SYNTHESIZE PURE SPHERICAL BORONPOWDERS COATED WITH EITHER TITANIUM OR ZIRCONIUM FOR USE IN ENERGETIC PROPELLANTS AND EXPLOSIVES. THE PROCESS IS BASED ON A PROCESS PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED BY AERO-CHEM TO PRODUCE PHOTOVOLTAIC SILICON. IT INVOLVES THE REACTION OF VAPOR PHASE SODIUM WITH BORON TRICHLORIDE AND TITANIUM (OR ZIRCONIUM) CHLORIDE AND EXPANSION OF THE PRODUCTS T TH ...

  6. PARACHUTE OPENING SHOCK LOAD LIMITING SYSTEM

    SBC: Frost Engineering Development            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED TO SHAPE THE OPENING SHOCK FORCE-TIME PULSE OF A PERSONNEL PARACHUTE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN MAXIMUM DECELERATION WITH A MINIMUM PROBABILITY OF INJURY TO AN EJECTEE. ANALYSIS OF THE BIODYNAMICS OF PARACHUTE OPENING WILL BE USED TO ESTABLISH A MAXIMUM TOLERABLE DECELERATION. DESIGN CRITERIA INCLUDING THE NEEDED STROKE AND FORCE-DISPLACEMENT CURVE WILL BE DEVELOPED. TWO METHODS OF LOAD LI ...

  7. OPTICAL FIBER INSPECTION SYSTEM FOR COMPOSITE SHAFTING

    SBC: Advanced Composite Technology            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL PROVIDE THE NAVY WITH A LOW-COST FIBER OPTIC ENHANCEMENT TO THE "STANDARD" COMPOSITE PROPULSION SHAFTS IT PROPOSES FOR FUTURE SHIPS. THIS ENHANCEMENT WILL PROVIDE THREE SPECIFIC ADVANTAGES. FIRST, IT WILL PROVIDE A MEANS OF QUALITY CONTROL THROUGH THE SCIENTIFIC MONITORING OF THE THICK WALL COMPOSITE DURING MANUFACTURE. SECOND, IT WILL PROVIDE A MEANS OF "REAL-TIME" MONITORING OF ...

  8. OPTICAL BEAM STEERING AND SHAPING USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    ONE FACTOR LIMITING THE USE OF OPTICS IN APPLICATIONS SUCH AS COMMUNICATIONS, LASER RADAR, AND OPTICAL PROCESSING IS THE LACK OF A SATISFACTORY TECHNOLOGY FOR THE STEERING AND SHAPING OF OPTICAL BEAMS. SIMILAR PROBLEMS HAVE EXISTED FOR RADAR AND RADIO COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS. IN THOSE TECHNOLOGIES, HOWEVER, THE PROBLEMS HAVE LARGELY BEEN SOLVED BY THE USE OF PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA TECHNIQUES. DISPLAY ...

  10. MULTIPLE TADIL PROCESSING

    SBC: MIKROS SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM IDENTIFIED IN THIS PROJECT IS THE LACK OF COMMUNICATION INTEROPERABILITY. THE PROBLEM WAS DISCOVERED DURING THE VIETNAM CONFLICT AND CORRECTIVE ACTION BEGAN WITH THE TACS/TADS INTERFACE PROGRAM. THE RECOMMENDED APPROACH IS ONE WHICH ADDS ANOTHER "TRANSLATOR BOX/CARD" IN A COMMUNICATION SYSTEM ALREADY LADENED WITH COSTLY BLACK BOXES. THE FOLLOWING THESIS IS ONE WHICH ATTACKS THE ROOT PR ...
