  1. Magnetohydrodynamic Energy Bypass Application for Single-Stage-to-Orbit Vehicles

    SBC: Mse Technology Applications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The global political structure has changed dramatically since the breakup of the former Soviet Union. World changes have caused the U.S. to reprioritize its National hypersonic needs. The United States government has looked to the needs of the future, and the hypersonic aeorospace plane is one of the systems included in alternative force structures. One of the hypersonic aerospace plane concepts w ...

  2. Visual Knowledge Capture for the Development of Expert Systems

    SBC: S&K Electronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    S&K Electronics is proposing a visual programming environment for developing expert systems in CLIPS. This project will be known as the Visual Expert System Programming Resource, or VESPR. The visual environment will provide a graphical interface for easily capturing knowledge and converting it into the appropriate language constructs; it will also provide visualization of the system being develop ...

  3. Laser Materials for Remote Sensing of Ozone

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Space based lidar systems for the remote sensing of Ozone require high-power, high-efficiency lasers operating in the ultraviolet. Diode-pumped solid-state lasers are the primary candidates for this application. Operation in the ultraviolet is typically achieved through two or three frequency conversion steps using nonlinear optical materials. This reduces the efficiency of the laser systems placi ...

  4. Lithium Borogermanate; A New NLO Crystal for Frequency Conversion

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Nonlinear optical (NLO) materials play a critical role in current solid-state laser systems enabling broad tunability and operation at wavelengths not accessible by available laser gain media. At the same time, NLO materials limit the longevity and efficiency of these laser systems due to low damage thresholds, poor optical quality and small nonlinearities. As a result, new NLO materials are requi ...

  5. An Assisted Change Detection System

    SBC: Visual Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has a critical need for intelligent change detection algorithms andgeoprocessing techniques for digital imagery archives of earth sciencedata obtained from satellites and aerial platforms. Currently, the changedetection process is slow, labor-intensive, and costly. Change detectionmethods that rely on pixel differencing detect all changes between imageryand are thus not well suited for detect ...

  6. A Novel Machine Learning System for Autonomous Classification of High-Resolution

    SBC: Visual Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has a critical need to automate the identification and classification of features in Earth Science imagery, particularly new high-resolution imagery. In addition, commercial applications of Earth Science data as well as the viability of the remote sensing industry depend on the development of new tools for accelerated classification of remotely sensed images. Previous research by others to au ...

  8. LOW COST HIGH PERFORMANCE CONTINUOUS FIBER CERAMIC COMPOSITES: 3-D BRAIDED PREFORMS AS SIC MATRIX COMPOSITES USING CVI

    SBC: Quadrax Advanced Materials            Topic: N/A

    3-D BRAIDED PREFORMS SHOULD INCREASE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF CERAMIC COMPOSITES IN ALL DIRECTIONS; ITS INTERLOCKING FIBER ARCHITECTURE SHOULD BE EFFECTIVE IN ARRESTING CRACKS, AND REMOVING CATASTROPIC FAILURE. THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES THE ISUES OF MERGING AN EFFECTIVE REINFORCEMENT SYSTEM WITH AN INEXPENSIVE CERAMIC MATRIX PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY TO DISCOVER A LOW COST MANUFACTURING ROUTE TO HIGH PER ...

  10. Bioengineered Proteins for Chemical/Biological Defense, Protection, and Decontamination

    SBC: Transwesttech            Topic: N/A

    This proposal encompasses a facile method for generating transgenic chickens. Traditionally, the approach to accomplish this has been to target the avian egg or embryo for gene insertion using either viral or 'standard' plasmids as vectors. In contrast,our proposed method introduces two new features, i.e. (1) novel transposon DNA vectors and (2) injection of DNA into the testes of immature males. ...
