  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. ANTHROPOMORPHIC CUTANEOUS TACTILE SENSING ON DEXTEROUS MECHANICAL HANDS

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH SPECIALLY DESIGNED END-EFFECTORS HAVE PROVIDED PRESENT DAY ROBOTS AND TELEOPERATOR SYSTEMS WITH THE ABILITY TO DO MANY INTRICATE TASKS, TRUE MANIPULATOR DEXTERITY WILL ONLY COME THROUGH THE USE OF MULTI-FINGERED ANTHROPOMORPHIC MECHANICAL HANDS. STABLE GRASPING OF IRREGULAR OBJECTS, OBJECT RECOGNITION, PRECISION ASSEMBLY, AND PERFORMANCE OF MANY INTRICATE TASKS NOW CONFINED TO HUMANS WILL ...

  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 ...

  5. THE ENZYMATIC DEGRADATION OF POLYURETHANE PAINT BY SUBSTRATE ADDITION

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ENZYMES HAVE BEEN USED IN INDUSTRY, FOR ANALYTICAL PURPOSES AND IN MEDICINE SINCE THE TURN OF THE CENTURY. THE LOW CONCENTRATION OF ENZYMES WHICH ARE NORMALLY PRODUCED BY WILD STRAINS, HOWEVER, WAS A CONSIDERABLE HINDRANCE FOR NEW RESEARCH AND APPLICATION UNTIL RECENT ADVANCES IN FERMENTATION CONDITIONS, GENETICS AND IMMOBILIZATION PROCESSES. THESE BREAKTHROUGHS HAVE ALLOWED THE ENZYME TECHNOLOGY ...

  6. THE BIODEGRADATION OF UNCURED FIBER-REINFORCED POLYMERS

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER-REINFORCED POLYMERS COMPRISE A SIGNIFICANT FRACTION OF THE MATERIALS USED IN THE FABRICATION OF RECENT AND DEVELOPING AIR FORCE WEAPON SYSTEMS. EPOXY, POLYIMIDE, PHENOLIC AND POLYESTER RESIN BASES, IN CONJUNCTION WITH KEVLAR 49 ARAMID, CARBON AND GLASS SUPPORTS, PROVIDE HIGH-PERFORMANCE WITH LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS, DAMAGE (FATIGUE AND STRESS) RESISTANCE AND VIBRATION DAMPIN ...

  7. THE BIODEGRADATION OF CONFORMAL COATINGS

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRINTED BOARDS AND COMPONENTS ARE COATED WITH A PROTECTIVE FILM, CALLED CONFORMAL COATINGS, PRIMARILY TO PREVENT, OR AT LEAST TO MINIMIZE, DEGRADATION IN ELECTRICAL PERFORMANCE WHEN SUBJECTED TO ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES. THESE CONFORMAL COATINGS ARE SYSTEMS OF SYNTHETIC RESINS THAT ARE DISSOLVED IN BALANCED VOLATILE SOLVENT VEHICLES. OF THE VAST NUMBERS OF SYNTHETIC RESINS NOW AVAILABLE, A SELECTED ...

  8. STATISTICAL STUDY OF STRESS-INDUCED MICROSTRUCTURES IN SELECTED ROCK AND CONCRETE

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PROPERTIES OF ELASTIC-BRITTLE MATERIALS CHANGE UNDER STRESSES WHICH ARE HIGH ENOUGH TO INDUCE MICROSTRUCTURAL ALTERNATIONS. THESE MICROSTRUCTURAL CHANGES ULTIMATELY ARE THE CAUSES FOR MACROSCALE FAILURE OF MATERIALS. OBSERVATIONS AND STATISTICAL STUDIES OF THE STRESS-INDUCED MICROSTRUCTURAL CHANGES (DAMAGE TO THE MATERIAL) IN RELATION TO THE STRESS CONDITIONS, AND THEORETICAL ANALYSIS OF EFFECTIVE ...

  9. ANALYTICAL MODELING OF FATIGUE LIFE ON ROD END BEARING SYSTEM

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, AS REPORTED IN PROGRAM SOLICITATION 90.1 BY THE AIR FORCE, THE SPECTRUM OF BEARING AND BEARING LINER MATERIALS USED IN THE AIRCRAFT BEARING SYSTEMS BEHAVE IN AN UNEXPECTED WAY WHEN SUBJECTED TO CYCLIC LOADINGS. TO INVESTIGATE THE PROBLEM AND BETTER PREDICT THE FATIGUE LIFE OF THIS ROD AND BEARING SYSTEM, FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSES OF STRESS DISTRIBUTIONS, STRESS INTENSITY FACTORS, FATIGUE CHA ...

  10. A BIOLOGICAL MODEL OF THE EFFECTS OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES

    SBC: Topical Testing, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE BASIC NATURE OF MILITARY OPERATIONS, IT IS SOMETIMES NECESSARY FOR AIR FORCE PERSONNEL TO BE EXPOSED TO TOXIC CHEMICALS IN THEIR WORK ENVIRONMENT EITHER AS A PROTRACTED LOW-LEVEL EXPOSURE OR AS A HIGH-LEVEL, ACUTE EXPOSURE. THE APPLICATION HEREIN PROPOSES TO USE THE ANTERIOR EYE (CORNEA AND CONJUNCTIVA) AND ITS SENSORY INNERVATION AS AN ASSAY OF TOXIC EFFECTS. THE ANTERIOR EYE HAS UNIQU ...
