  1. Alternative Transducers for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: MAYUR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: SB031007

    The DARPA Phraselator currently deployed in overseas military operations is capable of translating spoken English language phrases into audible Pashto, Urdu, Dari, and Arabic language phrases. Although usable, the Phraselator is highly vulnerable to typical military environment noise resulting in significant loss of accuracy due to the limitations of existing microphone technology. Therefore the ...

  3. SURFACE STRENGHTHENING OF ADVANCED CERAMICS BY A THIN COMPOSITE SKIN

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT AND TRANSFER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I SBIR PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT A MONOLITHIC CERAMIC CORE-COMPOSITE SKIN STRUCTURE HAS SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED FRACTURE TOUGHNESS AS COMPARED TO THE CORE MATERIAL, WHILE SUBSTANTIALLY MAINTAINING ITS FLEXURAL STRENGTH. THE CORE MATERIAL IS REACTION BONDED SILICON NITRIDE, A FORMABLE AND RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE STRUCTURAL CERAMIC. THE COMPOSITE SKIN IS A CHEMICAL VA ...

  4. IMPROVED METHOD FOR HEATING CATALYTIC CONVERTERS OF VEHICLES TO ATTAIN ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE THREE-WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVICE MAKING TODAY'S AUTOMOBILES COMPLY WITH EXISTING EMISSION LAWS. THE FIRST TWO OR THREE MILES IN A TYPICAL 22-MINUTE, 12-MILE COMUTE IN TODAY'S VEHICLES RESULT IN THE EMISSION OF HALF OF THE TOTAL NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS, WHICH RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF URBAN SMOG, AS WELL AS HALF OF THE TOXIC CO EMISSIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE CAT ...

  5. Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB032039

    The Systems and Process Engineering Corporation (SPEC) will develop the Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL) which will use a proven high accuracy phase detected range circuit to determine range profiling to 1/8-inch accuracy. This circuit allows the ISL to operate as a Class I eye-safe device and still achieve the needed range. The ISL also utilizes ultra short pulse lengths, allowing improved signal ...

  7. Magnetic Microscope for the Inspection of Multichip Modules

    SBC: Neocera , LLC            Topic: N/A

    This is a proposal to develop and market a verification and inspection tool for MCM substrates. By reducing the risk of mounting good die on to defective MCM substrates, a significant reduction in cost and improvement in the yield and reliability of populated MCMs can be realized. A tool which detects potential problems during substrate manufacture, reduces substrates verification time, enhances s ...

  9. Multi-Dimensional Data Visualization System for Seismic Discrimination

    SBC: Multimax, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop the concept of a visualization subsystem to aid in the interpretation of multi-variate seismic discrimination analysis. Novel visualization techniques will be explored to identify tools capable of aiding in the discrimination of different types of seismic events, particularly those detected at regional distances out to 2,000 km. Such techniques will incl ...

  10. Research to Optimize Linked Compading Techniques for Noise Reduction in FM and FDM/FM Communications

    SBC: Link Plus Corp            Topic: N/A

    Link Plux Corporation and TRW, Inc. have recently been successful in implementing miniaturized linked compander technology using digital signal processing (DSP). The current product removes noise from voice transmissions across HF SSB radio (documented US Government testing measures 22 dB average improvement in S/N, with 47 dB maximum). Current proven products apply to AM/SSB signals at MF, HF, VH ...
