  1. DEVELOPMENT OF A RELIABLE REAL-TIME FREON DETECTOR

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

    IN ORDER TO PREVENT INJURY OR DEATH RESULTING FROM OXYGEN DEPRIVATION CAUSED BY THE RELEASE OF HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF FREON GASES IN INDOOR ENVIRONMENTS, A SIMPLE, COMPACT, RELIABLE FREON MONITORING DEVICE IS PROPOSED. THE ELECTRON-CAPTURE DETECTOR WILL BE USED AS THE FREONSENSING ELEMENT IN THE MONITOR BECAUSE OF ITS PROVEN SENSITIVITY AND SELECTIVITY TO FREONS. THE PROPOSED INSTRUMENT, WHICH OPE ...

  2. INTEGRATED RELIABILITY AND TIMING DESIGN ANALYSIS TOOL

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    DURING DEVELOPMENT OF COMPLEX, EMBEDDED SYSTEMS QUANTITATIVE TRADEOFFS OF RELIABILITY AND TIMING PERFORMANCE ARE OFTEN NOT CONSIDERED. DEGRADED PERFORMANCE IN ONE OR BOTH OF THESE AREAS CAN RESULT. AN INTEGRATED RELIABILITY AND TIMING ANALYSIS TOOL WILL PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY FOR SIMULTANEOUSLY ASSESSING SYSTEM DESIGNS FOR BOTH CHARACTERISTICS. BY BASING THE TOOL ON AN ICONIC DESIGN REPRESENTATION ...

  3. A HARDWARE SCALABLE MICROPROCESSOR-BASED TESTBED FOR SYSTEM-LEVEL SIMULATION

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT AN EFFICIENT AND ECONOMICAL MICROPROCESSOR-BASED TESTBED FOR SYSTEM-LEVEL SIMULATION WHICH IS EASILY SCALABLE IN HARDWARE RESOURCES AND WHICH HAS A POWERFUL DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT. THE PERFORMANCE TARGET OF THE TESTBED IS A TIME COMPRESSION TEN TIME GREATER THAN THAT FROM ONE OF THE CONSTITUENT PROCESSORS. THE SIMULATION TESTBED WILL BE DESIGNED TO EXECU ...

  4. EXPERT SYSTEM FOR FINITE ELEMENT MODELING

    SBC: Autodesk Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MOST TYPICAL PROBLEMS IN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING ARE BEST ANALYZED BY APPROXIMATING AN OBJECT'S GEOMETRY WITH FINITE ELEMENTS. SELECTING AN APPROPRIATE MESHING STRATEGY FOR A GIVEN SOLID REQUIRES KNOWLEDGE ABOUT FINITE ELEMENT THEORY IN GENERAL, AND ABOUT PACKAGE-SPECIFIC DETAILS IN PARTICULAR. THE ADEPT SYSTEM INTEGRATES A TRADITIONAL SOLIDMODELER WITH AN EXPERT SYSTEM EQUIPPED WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE ...

  5. TACTILE TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM FOR DEXTEROUS TELEROBOTICS

    SBC: Begej Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND FABRICATE AN INNOVATIVE FINGERTIP-SHAPED TACTILE TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM FOR DEXTEROUS TELEROBOTIC SYSTEMS. THE PRINCIPAL TASKS TO BE PERFORMED ARE: (1) DESIGN OF VARIOUS MINIATURE TACTILE STIMULATOR ELEMENTS AND EVALUATION OF THE ACTUATION STRENGTH, DISPLACEMENT MAGNITUDE, FREQUENCY RESPONSE RANGE, AND THERMAL LOADING CHARACTERISTICS, (2) CONSTRUCTION OF ...

  6. ASYNCHRONOUS MULTILEVEL ADAPTIVE METHODS FOR PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS ON THE NAVIER-STOKES COMPUTER

    SBC: Colorado Research Development            Topic: N/A

    NASA IS CURRENTLY SUPPORTING A VERY PROMISING PROJECT FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH-POWERED MULTIPROCESSOR SYSTEM, THE NAVIER-STOKES COMPUTER (NSC). WHILE MULTILEVEL ALGORITHMS ARE BEING STUDIED IN THE NSC ENVIRONMENT FOR SOLVING THE ELLIPTIC EQUATIONS THAT ARISE IN DISCRETIZING INCOMPRESSIBLENAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS, NO RESEARCH HAS YET FOCUSED ON LOCAL ADAPTIVE SCHEMES FOR THIS PURPOSE. THIS IS IMPOR ...

  7. SYMBOLIC IMAGERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (SIMS)

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

    THE USE OF IMAGERY FOR THE PRESENTATION OF DATA IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY COMMON. INTEGRATING IMAGE DATA WITH GRAPHIC DATA STRUCTURES AND FEATURE INFORMATION IS VERY DIFFICULT USING TRADITIONAL DIGITAL REPRESENTATIONS. SEPARATE IMAGE AND FEATURE INFORMATION DATABASES ARE COMMONLY USED, BUT THE ANALYST IS REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN TWO OR MORE DATABASES AND TO PERFORM INTEGRATION OF THE INFORMATION IN HIS ...

  8. FAST PRODUCIBLE OPTICAL NOVELTY FILTERS MADE WITH FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL PHASE CONJUGATORS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO PRODUCE FAST SWITCHING, LOW-POWER, LOW-COST, HIGH RESOLUTION OPTICAL PHASE CONJUGATORS FOR NOVEL APPLICATIONS TO TRACKING NOVELTY FILTERING. THE OPTICAL PHASE CONJUGATING DEVICE DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL USES A SI:H PHOTOSENSORSIN THE PHOTODIODE MODE TO MODULATE THE INDEX OF REFRACTION OF A HIGHLY BIREFRINGENT (DELTA N = 0.2) FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL ( ...

  10. LOW-COST FM-CW DOPPLER MICRO-RADAR RAIN GAGE

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NEW NASA SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING PROGRAMS SUCH AS TRMM, WHICH INTEND TO MEASURE GLOBAL PRECIPITATION, REQUIRE "GROUND TRUTH" CALIBRATION. PRECIPITATION MEASUREMENT IS ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT FROM SHIPS AT SEA, WHICH ARE THE PRIMARY "SEA TRUTH" AVAILABLE OVER MOST OF THE EARTH'S SURFACE. CONVENTIONAL GAGES ARE UNSUITED TO MARINE PLATFORMS. IF SUCCESSFUL, THIS RESEARCH WILL RESULT IN A PRACTICAL AND I ...
