  1. A COMPACT ACCELERATOR-BASED NEUTRON SOURCE FOR BAGGAGE INTERROGATION

    SBC: Accsys Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF THERMAL NEUTRONS AS A TOOL FOR BAGGAGE INSPECTIONIS AN ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE, WITH A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM CURRENTLY BEING TESTED FOR AIRPORT FEASIBILITY AS AN EXPLOSIVE DETECTION DEVICE. THIS SYSTEM COULD POSSIBLY BE MODIFIED FOR INDIVIDUAL BAGGAGE IDENTIFICATION THROUGH THE USE OF IMAGING OR ACTIVATION DETECTION OF SUITABLE TAGS. HOWEVER, FEASIBILITY TESTING OF THIS CONCEPT AND THE COMMERC ...

  2. AN AUTOMATED INJURY CODING PROGRAM

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    WITHIN THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT NEED TO PROVIDE ACCIDENT INVESTIGATORS WITH ADVANCED COMPUTER BASED TOOLS THAT CAN ASSIST IN THE ANALYSIS OF ACCIDENT DATA. IN PARTICULAR, AN "EXPERT SYSTEM" THAT COULD INTERPRET THE VARIOUS SOURCES OF ACCIDENT DATA AND AUTOMATICALLY CODE THESE IN ACCORDANCE WITH VARIOUS INJURY CODING SCHEMES, WOULD BE OF SIGNIFICANT ...

  3. SHADOWGRAPH ENHANCEMENT

    SBC: Astrophysics Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD OF AUTOMATED OPERATOR ASSISTANCE FOR SECURITY X_RAYMACHINE OPERATORS IS DEVELOPED AND EVALUATED. THE METHOD ISBASED ON ANALYSIS OF IMAGE AREAS SUFFICIENTLY DENSE TO POS- SIBLY CONTAIN A THREAT. BOTH METALLIC THREATS SUCH AS GUNS AND NONMETALLIC THREATS SUCH AS EXPLOSIVES ARE STUDIED.

  4. ROAD TESTS AND EVALUATION TO DETERMINE EFFECTIVENESS OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENT PREVENTION SONIC DEVICE TO IMPROVE SAFETY OF MOTOCYCLISTS AND SCHOOL BUS OCCUPANTS

    SBC: Computer Sonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN 1985, 4570 MOTRCYCLISTS AND 24 SCHOOL BUS OCCUPANTS WERE KILLED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS. THE TOTAL SOCIETAL COST OF VEHICLE ACCIDENTS IN THE UNITED STATES IS ABOUT 30 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR. REDUCING THE VEHICLE TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS BY10% WILL RESULT IN THE NATIONAL WEALTH BY 3 BILLION DOLLARS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE EFFECTIVENESS OF RECENTLY DEVELOPED AND BUITL PROTOTYPES OF ...

  6. NEURAL NETWORKS FOR AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL

    SBC: Netrologic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POWERFUL NEW COMPUTATIONAL DEVICES AND METHODS BASED ON BIO-LOGICAL PRINCIPLES OF INFORMATION PROCESSING ARE CURRENTLY BEING APPLIED IN PROBLEMS IN PATTERN RECOGNITION COMBINATORIAL OPTIMIZATION, EVIDENTIAL KNOWLEDGE PROCESSING AND IN MANYOTHER PROBLEMS WHICH HAVE RESISTED SOLUTIONS USING CONVEN- TIONAL ALGORITHMIC APPROACHES. THE RESEARCH PROPOSED HEREININVOLVES EXPLORING THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLY ...

  7. SQUID NMR FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION

    SBC: Quantum Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE SUCCESS OF PREVIOUS CONVENTIONAL NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE (NMR) AND NUCLEAR QUADRUPOLE RESONANCE (NQR) SYSTEMS FOR DETECTING EXPLOSIVES IN AIRLINE BAGGAGE HAS BEEN LIMITED BY THE NEED TO OPERATE AT LOW FIELDS AND LOW FREQUENCIES WHERE THE SENSITIVITY OF SUCH SYSTEMS IS SEVERELY LIMITED. HOWEVER, RECENT EXPERIMENTS HAVE SHOWN THAT SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES IN NMR DETECTION CIRCUITS CAN ACHIEVE ...

  9. COMPUTER VOICE AND SPEECH DATA ENTRY AND RECOGNITION

    SBC: Speech Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    TO THE EXTENT THAT THE ADVENT OF COMPUTERIZED AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS NEEDS AN EFFECTIVE MAN-MACHINE DIALOGUE WHICH IS NOT ENCUMBERED BY EXCESSIVE KEYBOARD INTERACTION, A REAL-TIME CONTINUOUS SPEECH INTERFACE CAN SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. UNTIL NOW, SPEECH-RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGIES HAVE BEEN CHARACTERIZED BY LIMITED VOCABULARY, RESTRICTED SYNTAX, AND WORD ISOLATION. THIS STUDY WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FE ...

  10. SPACE TIME ADAPTIVE PROCESSING FOR AI RADARS

    SBC: Adaptive Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AIRBORNE INTERCEPTOR RADARS AT UHF OR L-BAND WITH CONFORMAL WINGMOUNTED ARRAY ANTENNAS AND DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING ARE OF INTEREST FOR FUTURE SYSTEMS. ADAPTIVE CONTROL OF THE ANGLE/DOPPLER RESPONSE OF THESE RADARS, USING ARRAY ELEMENT OUTPUTS, MULTIPLE BEAM OUTPUTS, OR SUB-APERTURE OUTPUTS PROVIDES A POSSIBLE METHOD OF DETECTING AND TRACKING LOW CROSS-SECTION TARGETS IN GROUND CLUTTER. THESE TEC ...
