  3. DECREASEING THE COST AND INCREASING THE PERFORMANCE OF COMPUTER BASED TRAINING SIMULATIONS

    SBC: Digital Dispatch Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AUTHORING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN PROVEN EFFECTIVE IN PRODUCING COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING LESSONS CONTAINING SEQUENCES OF TEXT AND GRAPHICS SCREENS THROUGH WHICH THE STUDENT IS GUIDED UNTIL MASTERY IS ACHIEVED. IN A PERSONNEL TRAINING SIMULATION, FAR MORE ADVANCED CAPABILITIES ARE REQUIRED, INCLUDING MULTITASKING, COMMUNICATION WITH EXTERNAL DEVICES, HIGH SPEED DATA ANALYSIS AND GRAPHI ...

  4. REACTIVE PROTECTION FOR HARDENED FACILITIES

    SBC: Seb Engineering Inc (fscm63834            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO EXPLORE THE WORTHINESS OF EMPLOYING REACTIVE PROTECTION FOR STRUCTURES SUBJECTED TO THE EFFECTS OF MODERN CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS. THE REACTIVE PROTECTION CONSISTS OF HIGH EXPLOSIVE (HE) CHARGES EMBEDDED IN PROTECTIVE LAYERS. THE SYSTEM IS INTENDED FOR DISTRUBING THE PENETRATION CAPABILITIES OF MODERN CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS, CONTROLLING THE MAGNITUDE OF LOADS ...

  5. MEASUREMENT OF ELECTRO-OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF ALXGA1-XN FOR INTEGRATED OPTIC DEVICES

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE A PROGRAM TO FABRICATE SINGLE MODE SYMMETRIC WAVEGUIDES IN ALXGA1-XN, AND TO MEASURE THE ELECTRO-OPTICAL PROPOERTIES OF THE MATERIAL SYSTEM. OUR PROGRAM IS SIGNIFICANT DUE TO THE POTENTIAL OF USING ALXGA1-XN WAVEGUIDES FOR UNIQUE ELECTRO-OPTIC DEVICES OPERATING IN THEULTRAVIOLET AND VISIBLE PARTS OF THE SPECTRUM. WE SPECIFICALLY DESIRE TO FABRICATE SUCH A SOLID STATE LASER SCANNER UNDER ...

  6. ENZYME-LINKED RECEPTOR ASSAY FOR SODIUM CHANNEL TOXINS

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A LARGE NUMBER OF TOXINS (SUCH AS PARALYTIC SHELLFISH TOXINS, TETRODOTOXIN, AND BACTRACHOTOXIN) ARE POTENTIALLY LETHAL CONTAMINANTS IN SEAFOOD SAMPLES. THESE TOXINS ARE KNOWN TO ACT BY ALTERING THE CONDUCTANCE PROPERTIES OF A WELL-CHARACTERIZED SODIUM CHANNEL FOUND IN MUSCLES AND NERVES. IN THIS STUDY, WE WILL PREPARE AN ENZYME-LINKED ASSAY TO DETECT THESE TOXINS: ENZYME- OR COENZYME-TOXIN CONJUGA ...

  7. SURFACE MODIFICATION TO IMPROVE CELL ADHESION IN BIOREACTORS

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SCIENTIFIC AND REGULATORY CONSIDERATIONS DICTATE THAT MANY VACCINES AND GENETICALLY ENGINEERED PROTEINS FOR USE IN IN HUMANS ARE BEST PRODUCED IN MAMMALIAN CELL LINES DERIVED FROM NON-MALIGNANT SOURCES. THESE CELLS USUALLY REQUIRE A SURFACE UPON WHICH TO GROW, AND SEVERAL BIOREACTOR CONFIGURATIONS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH HAVE LARGE SURFACE AREAS COMPRESSED INTO SMALL VOLUMES, THEREBY IMPROVING T ...

  8. NON-CONTACT PENCIL PROBE FOR ADVANCED MANUFACTURING INSPECTION

    SBC: Cyberoptics Corp            Topic: N/A

    AS THE UNITED STATES MOVES TO JUST-IN-TIME MANUFACTURING, THERE WILL BE INCREASED EMPHASIS ON RAPID AND ACCURATE INSPECTION TECHNIQUES. FOR THESE REASONS, RESEARCH AIMED AT THE ULTIMATE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH ACCURACY, MINIATURE PROBE CAPABLE OF INSPECTING MANUFACTURED PARTS WITH COMPLEX GEOMETRIES IS PROPOSED. A NOVEL LASER BASED, NON-CONTACT INSPECTION TECHNIQUE FOR PRECISION MEASUREMENTS OF INTE ...

  9. "PROPERTIES OF ROCK DISCONTINUITIES"

    SBC: Itasca Consulting Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ROCK MASSES ARE THE HOST MEDIA FOR ENGINEERING VENTURES OF MAJOR ECONOMIC AND DEFENSE SIGNIFICANCE. THE PERFORMANCE OFA ROCK MASS UNDER ENGINEERING CONDITIONS IS USUALLY DOMINATED BY THE DISCONTINUOUS NATURE OF THE MEDIUM. HOWEVER, THE TECHNIQUES OF DESCRIBING THE TOPOGRAPHY OF DISCONTINUITIES OR JOINTS, WHICH STRONGLY INFLUENCE THEIR PROPERTIES, AND OF EXPERIMENTALLY MEASURING THEIR MECHANICALPRO ...

  10. ANTIGEN PRODUCTION & TROUT IMMUNIZATION AGAINST INFECTIOUS HEMATOPOIETIC NECROSIS VIRUS

    SBC: Rangen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IMMUNIZATION IS THE ONLY PRACTICAL CONTROL FOR HIGHLY DESTRUCTIVE INFECTIOUS HEMATOPOIETIC NECROSIS (IHN) VIRUS INFECTIONS OF TROUT AND SALMON. IHN VIRUS GROWN IN CELL CULTURE EITHER GIVES TOO LITTLE ANTIGEN OR THE MATERIAL IS NOT SUFFICIENTLY ANTIGENIC FOR USE AS A KILLED-VACCINE. BUTVIRUS REPLICATION AND SHEDDING DURING EPIZOOTICS PRODUCE HIGH LEVELS OF NATURAL INFECTIVITY AND, PERHAPS, A FORM H ...
