  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 ...

  8. 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 ...
