  2. 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 ...

  3. APPLICATION OF FLEXIBLE WRAP AROUND AIR VANES TO GUIDED MUNITIONS

    SBC: Coleman Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CRC PROPOSES A DESIGN STUDY TO APPLY TWO DEVELOPMENTAL WRAP-AROUND FIN (WAF) TECHNIQUES TO AIR FORCE GUIDED MUNITIONS. THESE FLEXIBLE WAF DESIGNS DIFFER FROM CONVENTIONAL WAF'S IN THAT THEY BECOME STRAIGHT WHEN DEPLOYED. AS A RESULT THEY AVOID THE UNDERSIRABLE (AND DIFFICULT TO PREDICT AND TO MEASURE) AERODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF CURVED WAF'S. MOST DESIGNERS OF GUIDED MUNITIONS HAVE AVOIDED WAF'S BEC ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. SOLID-STATE DIGITAL X-RAY IMAGING SYSTEM FOR IMPROVED NDI/E TECHNIQUES

    SBC: General Imaging Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A LARGE AREA SOLID-STATE DIGITAL X-RAY IMAGING SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO IMPROVE EXISTING NON-DESTRUCTIVE TEST AND INSPECTION TECHNIQUES. THE IMAGING SENSOR CONSISTS OF A FLUORESCENT SCREEN, A FIBER OPTICS BUNDLE AND AN ARRAY OF SOLID-STATE IMAGE SENSORS. SUBSEQUENT DIGITAL IMAGE PROCESSING AND ARCHIVAL TECHNIQUES OFFER COST SAVINGS AND IMPROVED RESOLUTION OVER MOST EXISTING MODALITIES. THE SENS ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. PARALLEL PROCESSING APPLICATIONS FOR AVIONICS

    SBC: I-MATH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SINGLE FORM OF A "MASSIVELY PARALLEL" COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE IS BEING SOUGHT TO HOST THE COMPLETE SUITE OF A VISION MODEL-BASED OBJECT RECOGNITION ALGORITHM. TWO APPROACHES WILL BE INVESTIGATED DURING PHASE I: (1) A SIMD ARCHITECTURE REPRESENTED BY THE AMT DISTRIBUTED ARRAY PROCESSOR DAP, AND (2) A MIMD ARCHITECTURE BASED UPON THE SHILOACH/VISHKIN ALGORITHM. THE DAP 510 WILL BE EMULATED ON I-MATH ...

  9. A PORTABLE ELECTRON COOLED ANTIPROTON STORAGE RING

    SBC: Integrated Accelerator Technol            Topic: N/A

    ANTIMATTER CONTAINS THE HIGHEST RATIO OF ENERGY STORAGE PER UNIT MASS OF ANY SUBSTANCE KNOWN TO MAN. WHEN ANTIMATTER COMES INTO CONTACT WITH NORMAL MATTER IT COMPLETELY ANNIHILATES, WITH ITS MASS CONVERTED INTO ENERGY ACCORDING TO THE FORMULA E=MC2. THE ENERGY RELEASED IN THE ANNIHILATION MAY PROVE USEFUL AS A FUTURE SOURCE OF POWER FOR APPLICATIONS REQUIRING HIGH POWER DENSITY FUEL SOURCES, SUCH ...

  10. DATABASE ADMINISTRATION ASSISTANT

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS SBIR IS TO APPLY EXPERT SYSTEM AND ADVANCED DATA DICTIONARY TECHNOLOGY TO THE PROBLEM OF DATABASE ADMINISTRATION. PHASE I WILL RESULT IN THE DEFINITION AND SPECIFICATION OF A DATABASE ADMINISTRATION ASSISTANT (DBAA). A PROTOTYPE IMPLEMENTATION SHALL BE DEMONSTRATED AT THE END OF PHASE II. THE FOLLOWING TASKS WILL BE PERFORMED DURING PHASE I OF THIS SBIR: IDENTIFY TYPICAL DBA ...
