  1. ANALYSIS OF BALLISTIC RANGE DATA USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

    SBC: Arrow Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ANALYSIS OF AEROBALLISTIC RANGE DATA IS A TEDIOUS AND TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING TASK. THE SOPHISTICATED ANALYSIS PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED SOFTWARE (COMPUTER PROGRAMS) HAVE BEEN REFINED EXTENSIVELY DURING THE PAST FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS WITH THE ADDITION OF THE SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM CODES EMPLOYING THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD METHOD. THE REQUIRED PROFICIENCY TAKES BETWEEN THREE AND FIVE YEARS UNDER TH ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF SILICON CARBIDE METAL-SEMICONDUCTOR FIELD-EFFECT TRANSISTORS FOR HIGH POWER OPERATION AT HIGH TEMPERATURES

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

    SILICON CARBIDE POSSESSES A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF PROPERTIES THAT ALLOW SIMULTANEOUS HIGH TEMPERATURE AND HIGH POWER OPERATION OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES MADE FROM THIS MATERIAL. THE CUBIC FORM OF SIC (BETA) HAS A WIDE BANDGAP (2.2 EV @ 27 DEG C), WHICH THEORETICALLY GIVES A MAXIMUM OPERABLE TEMPERATURE OF 925 DEG C. ALPHA SIC (6H) HAS AN EVEN WIDER BANDGAP OF 2.86 EV @ 27 DEG C, GIVING A MAXIMUM OPERA ...

  3. FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR HIGH-DATA-RATE NONDENIABLE COMMUNICATIONS

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: N/A

    MAINTAINING COMMAND-AND-CONTROL COMMUNICATIONS CONNECTIVITY CONTINUOUSLY THROUGH PRE-, TRANS-, AND POST-ATTACK PERIODS IS ESSENTIAL. COMMUNICATION LINKS FOR THIS APPLICATION SHOULD BE NONDENIABLE (BY NUCLEAR DETONATION) AND NONINTERRUPTABLE, AND SHOULD ALSO ALLOW COMMUNICATIONS WHILE IN MOTION AND HIGH DATA RATES. HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL COMMUNICATION TECHNIQUES ARE ILL SUITED FOR USE IN THIS APPLIC ...

  4. REACTION RATE ENGINEERING MODELS OF FATIGUE CRACK GROWTH

    SBC: Kozin Bogdanoff & Assocs Inc            Topic: N/A

    EXPLORE TO WHAT EXTENT THE EXISTING MICRO REACTION RATE KINETIC THEORY OF THERMALLY ACTIVATED FRACTURE CAN BE USED TO RELATE THE PARAMETERS OF PROBABILISTIC MACRO ENGINEERING MODELS OF CUMULATIVE DAMAGE (FATIGUE, FATIGUE CRACK GROWTH) TO THE USUAL PARAMETERS OF ENGINEERING SIGNIFICANCE SO THAT ACCURATE PREDICTION OF CRACK GROWTH CAN BE ACHIEVEDWITH MINIMUM TESTING FOR A SPECIFIC SET OF ENGINEERING ...

  5. MACHINE TOOL PRODUCTS AND PROCESSES

    SBC: South Bend Lathe Inc            Topic: N/A

    SINGLE SPINDLE SCREW MACHINES HAVE REMAINED ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED IN DESIGN AND OPERATION SINCE EARLY IN THE CENTURY. CAMS AND LEVERS ARE STILL THE PRINCIPAL MEANS OF OPERATING THE SLIDES. ALTHOUGH VERY PRODUCTIVE ONCE SET UP, THE TREND TOWARD SMALLER LOT SIZES, SETUP TIME REQUIREMENTS, AND SUPPORT SKILLS REQUIREMENTS HAVE COMBINED TO SUPPLANT THE USE OF THESE MACHINES WITH GENERAL PURPOSE CNC MAC ...

  6. NOVEL BASE BORONATED OLIGONUCLEOTIDES FOR BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY

    SBC: BORON BIOLOGICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY (BNCT) HAS A CLEAR THEORETICALADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TECHNIQUES AS A METHOD OF DELIVERING CELL KILLING RADIATION TO TUMORS. NEW BORON COMPOUNDS ARE NEEDED THAT CAN SELECTIVELY LOCALIZE IN TUMORS AND, UPON CAPTURE OF THERMAL OR EPITHERMAL NEUTRONS, PRODUCE RADIATIONTO KILL TUMOR CELLS BUT SPARE NORMAL TISSUE AND BLOOD. BNCTEFFECTIVENESS WOULD BE GREATEST IF THE BORON TAR ...

  8. LIMITED COOL STORAGE FOR UTILITY DEMAND SIDE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS.

    SBC: Instatherm Co            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJORITY OF ELECTRIC UTILITIES OFFER TIME-OF-USE PRICING, TOGETHER WITH OTHER DEMAND SIDE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS, TO THEIR RESIDENTIAL / COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS. PROJECTIONS BY EPRI (EN-4815-SR) SUGGEST A PEAK REDUCTION OFABOUT 45 GIGAWATTS BY THE YEAR 2000, AS A RESULT OF THESE DSM PROGRAMS. PIVOTAL IN ACHIEVING THIS TARGET, IS THE 23 GIGAWATTS PEAK DEMAND REDUCTION TO BE ATTRIBUTED TO TIME-OF-USE ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF A ROBUST CAD-TO-GEANT INTERFACE FOR PHYSICS DETECTOR SPECIFICATION

    SBC: QUANTUM RESEARCH SERVICES            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT A USEFUL SOFTWARE INTERFACE CAN BE CONSTRUCTED THAT IS CAPABLE OF FAITHFULLY CONVERTING NORMAL COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) OUTPUT FILES INTO A FORMAT THAT IS DIRECTLY READABLE BY THE GEANT HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS DETECTOR SIMULATION CODE. GEANT, ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED IN THE 1970S, HAS EMERGED AS A STANDARD TOOL FOR DETECTOR SIMULATION; ...
