  1. A VARIABLE RATE REAL-TIME SPEECH AND VIDEO CODER FROM 19.2 KBPS TO 64 KBPS AT 10 FRAMES/SECOND

    SBC: Atlanta Signal Processors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 National Science Foundation
  2. INTEGRATED COLOR VISION

    SBC: Dickerson Vision Technologies            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL MACHINE VISION WAS TRODUCED IN THE 1970S. TO THIS POINT, IT HAS NOT BEEM USED WIDELY FOR AUTOMATION IN MANUFACTURING DUE TO PERFORMANCE, COMPLEXITY, AND COST ISSUES. MOST COMMERCIAL VISION SYSTEMS ARE BASED ON VIDEO TECHNOLOGY WITH SEPARATE CAMERAS, FRAME GRABBERS, DIGITIZERS, AND PROCESSORS. RELIANCE ON VIDEO TECHNOLOGY LIMITS PERFORMANCE AND REQUIRES EXPENSIVE, COMPLEX ARCHITECTURES. ...

  3. DESIGN, SYNTHESIS AND EVALUATION OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS WITH SATURATED CORES

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG RANGE SCIENTIFIC GOALS OF THIS RESEARCH ARE TO INCREASE UNDERSTANDING OF THE CORRELATION OF MOLECULAR STRUCTURE WITH PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL (FLC) PHASES, AND TO TEST STRATEGIES FOR DESIGN OF NEW MATERIALS. SPECIFICALLY, THE WORK IS AIMED AT INVENTINGNEW FLC MATERIALS HAVING LOW BIREFRINGENCE AND LOW ABSORPTION AT UV WAVELENGTHS. SUCH FLC MATERIALS WOULD HAVEAP ...

  4. DESIGN AND SYNTHESIS OF LINEAR ELECTRO-OPTIC EFFECT SMECTIC A(*) MATERIALS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 National Science Foundation
  5. COHESIONLESS SOIL AND SMALL DISCONTINUOUS REINFORCING ELEMENTS IN COMPOSITE ENGINEERING MATERIALS

    SBC: Earthwater Corp.            Topic: N/A

    IDENTIFICATION OF OPPORTUNITY: THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PRACTICABLE COMPOSITE GEOTECHNICAL MATERIAL CONSISTING OF SMALL DISCONTINUOUS REINFORCING ELEMENTS IN A COHESIONLESS SOIL MATRIX WOULD HAVE SEVERAL IMPORTANT APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING: BACKFILL FOR RETAINING SYSTEMS; BASE, SUBBASE, AND SUBGRADE MATERIALS FOR PAVEMENTS; ENGINEERED FILLS; BACKFILL AROUND UTILITIES; BEARING MATERIALS FOR FOUNDATIONS I ...

  6. ELECTROCHEMICAL IMPEDANCE PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR DETECTION OF MICROBIALLY INFLUENCED CORROSION

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR DIAGNOSTIC INSTRUMENTATION TO DETECT THE PRESENCE OF MICROBIALLY INFLUENCED CORROSION (MIC) OCCURRING AT METAL SURFACES. THE APPROACH IS DIRECTED TOWARD DEVELOPMENT OF PATTERN RECOGNITION SCHEMES BASED UPON THE ON-LINE ACQUISITION OF ELECTROCHEMICAL IMPEDANCE SPECTRA USING FAST FOURIER TRANSFORM ELECTROCHEMICAL IMPEDANCE SPECTROSCOPY (FFTEIS) INSTRUMENTATION FROM ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 National Science Foundation
  7. MIXED CONDUCTING MEMBRANE FOR SPONTANEOUS SULFUR RECOVERY

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT IS BEING DIRECTED TOWARD DEVELOPING MIXED PROTON AND ELECTRON CONDUCTING PEROVSKITE MEMBRANES COMPATIBLE FOR PROMOTING THE SPONTANEOUS CONVERSION OF H2S INTO SEPARATED SULFUR AND WATER. H2S DECOMPOSITION RELIES UPON INITIAL DISSOCIATION TO H2 AND SX AT THE MEMBRANE OPERATING TEMPERATURE (700-800 DEGREES CENTIGRADE) FOLLOWED BY H2 OXIDATION AND ASSOCIATED PROTON MEDIATION THROUGH THE ME ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 National Science Foundation
  8. INTERMEDIATE TEMPERATURE METHANE FUEL CELLS

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE THE UTILITY OF SOLID OXIDE FUEL CELLS (SOFCS) FOR PROMOTING THE EFFICIENT ELECTROCHEMICAL CONVERSION OF METHANE-BASED FUELS TO ELECTRICAL ENERGY OVER THE TEMPERATURE RANGE 600-900 DEGREES CENTIGRADE. EMPHASES IS IS ON ANODE ELECTROCATALYSTS INCORPORATING LATTICE SUBSTITUENTS DEMONSTRATING EVIDENCE FOR DIRECT OXIDATION OF METHANE AND THEIR STEAM REFORM P ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 National Science Foundation
  9. CLEAN ENERGY FROM MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE

    SBC: EnerTech Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 National Science Foundation
  10. CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER DECKING

    SBC: Engineering Data Mgmt Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CURRENTLY USED METHOD OF STRESS LAMINATING SAWN TIMBER BRIDGE DECKS POSSESSES A SIGNIFICANT STRESS RELAXATIO PROBLEM DUE TO THE ROD FORCE BEING APPLIED PERPENDICULAR TO GRAIN. A LAMINATE IS BEING DEVELOPED WHICH IMPROVES THE STRESS RELAXATION CHRACTERISTIC OF THE DECKING AND PROVIDES A BETTER DIMENSIONALLY STABLE PRODUCT WITH POTENTIAL FOR MATERIAL AMOUNT AND QUALITY SAVINGS. AN INVESTIGATION ...
