  1. Advanced Prediction Methods for Augmentative Communication

    SBC: ENKIDU RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices can provide an effective avenue of communication for individuals with communicative disabilities. A core component of many AAC systems is dynamic word prediction, in which a list of probable words is autonomously generated and presented for immediate user selection. Current word prediction systems employ algorithms which do not take full a ...

  6. Superconducting tunable multipole bandpass filter with in-situ trim

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR project, HYPRES proposes to demonstrate a tunable lumped-element superconducting bandpass filter for transmit/receive isolation applications, using Josephson circuits for in situ trim and control. Such a filter will provide insertion loss below 1 dB and 60 dB out-of-band rejection in a filter which can be tuned over the range 500 MHz - 2 GHz. The project will take advantage o ...

  8. Induction Carburizing--A Novel Cost Effective, Environmentally Safe, Affordable Technology

    SBC: SANOVA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Carburizing of steels to improve wear resistance is an old but widely used process. Current furnace technologies are expensive because their extensive requirements for time, space, labor, materials, energy and maintenance, and are harmful to the enviroment due to active atmosphere and heat losses. Separate equipment is needed to establish desired properties in the part case and core. The proposed ...
