  1. MULTIPLE LASER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Apeiron Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE KEY PROBLEM TO BE ADDRESSED IN PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT WILL BE TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A NOVEL POSITION MEASURING SYSTEM FOR A FAMILY OF COMPUTER CONTROLLED MACHINE TOOLS. THE MULTIPLE LASER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM (MLMS), WHICH FORMS THE BASIS OF THIS PROPOSAL, WILL MEASURE THE (X, Y, Z) POSITION OF THE CUTTING HEAD DIRECTLY AT RATES AND ACCURACIES SUFFICIENT FOR CLOSED LOOP POSITION CONTR ...

  2. INTELLIGENT FORWARD OBSERVER TRAINER

    SBC: Betac Corp            Topic: N/A

    AN INTELLIGENT TUTORING SYSTEM (ITS) WILL BE DEVELOPED AND INCORPORATED INTO A PROTOTYPE PC-BASED DESKTOP TRAINER FOR COMBAT FORWARD OBSERVERS AND FORWARD AIR CONTROLLERS. THIS TRAINER WILL USE DIGITAL VIDEO INTERACTIVE (DVI) TECHNOLOGY TO PRESENT THE TRAINEE WITH A SERIES OF HIGHLY REALISTIC INTERACTIVE SIMULATIONS OF THE FORWARD OBSERVER/CONTROLLER'S COMBAT ENVIRONMENT. THIS TRAINER MAKES EXTENS ...

  3. CONCEPT FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS FOR A LARGE RADIUS TRACK-CENTRIFUGE

    SBC: Biodynamic Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT DEFENSE CENTRIFUGES FOR HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION ARE MORE THAN 25 YEARS OLD, ARE LIMITED IN THE PROFILES WHICH THEY REPRODUCE, AND INTRODUCE SIGNIFICANT SIMULATION ARTIFACT. A RANGE OF SIGNIFICANT PROFILES EXISTS WHICH CANNOT BE ADEQUATELY SIMULATED WITH CURRENT CENTRIFUGES, IMPACT FACILITIES, OR SPATIAL DISORIENTATION TRAINERS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL EXPLORE THE POTENTIAL PROFILES WHICH CO ...

  4. HIGHLY ACCURATE SKIN FRICTION AND HEATING RATE PREDICTIONS USING NOVEL ADAPTIVE TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    ACCURATE AND EFFICIENT PREDICTION OF SKIN FICTION AND HEATING RATES FOR SUPERAND HYPERSONIC VEHICLES HAS LONG BEEN A GOAL OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD). THE USE OF STANDARD CFD METHODS TO RESOLVE THE NEAR-WALL BOUNDARY LAYER (WHICH IS ESSENTIAL FOR GOOD PRECITIONS OF AIRFOIL BEHAVIOR) USING A LARGE NUMBER OF GRID POINTS IS SELDOM FEASIBLE, OFTEN INACCURATE, AND IF DONE, ALWAYS REQUIRES EXC ...

  5. FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONICS

    SBC: Daina            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE MILITARY AVIONICS SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE AT LEAST AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENT IN MEAN TIME BETWEEN CRITICAL FAILURES. TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL INNOVATIVE FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONIC SYSTEM DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE NEEDED. THE APPROACH PROPOSED BY DAINA WILL BE BASED ON THE USE OF EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT DATA, BUILT-IN RELIABILITY MODEL, ADAPTIVE STATISTICAL SYSTEM STATE AND PARAMETER ES ...

  6. FAULT TOLERANT CPU CIRCUIT

    SBC: Galaxy Microsystems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FAST AND EFFICIENT ERROR DETECTION IS THE CORNERSTONE IN DEVELOPING A FAULT TOLERANT SYSTEM. UNDER CURRENT PROGRAM, GALAXY HAS DEVELOPED AN ERROR TOLERANT CPU ARCHITECTURE THAT WILL REAL TIME DETECT AND CORRECT SOFT ERRORS IN THE REGISTERS. EXPANSION OF THIS WORK WILL LEAD TO INTEGRITY CHECKING OF THE REMAINING PROCESSOR FUNCTIONS I.E. ALU, I/O, CONTROL, ETC. NECESSARY FOR ONBOARD MESSAGE PROCESSI ...

  7. DETERMINATION OF A GENERIC DEPOT SUPPORT FUNCTION FOR LEADLESS CHIP CARRIER TECHNOLOGY ON THE F15E

    SBC: Galaxy Microsystems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LEADLESS CHIP CARRIER PACKAGING IS CURRENTLY IN USE IN SEVERAL LRUS ON THE F15E. EACH SUPPLIER CONFIGURES HIS OWN DEPOT SUPPORT FACILITY WITH PARTICULAR EMPHASIS ON THEIR OWN ASSEMBLIES. THIS RESULTS IN A PROLIFERATION OF DEPOT SUPPORT EQUIPMENT AND AN EXCESSIVE NEED FOR PERSONNEL TRAINING. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO ASCERTAIN AN OVERALL DEPOT SUPPORT FUNCTION FOR LEADLESS CHIP CARRIER IMPL ...

  8. FORM FEATURE BASED DESIGN KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION FOR ULCE

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN LARGE, LONG LIFE, COMPLEX PRODUCTS SUCH AS MODERN WEAPONS SYSTEMS THE ORIGINAL DESIGN TEAM IS LONG SINCE GONE WHEN THE PRODUCT EXHIBITS THE DESIGN PROBLEMS. THE ONLY WAY TO PROVIDE THE NEW DESIGN TEAM WITH VISIBILITY INTO THE CORRELATION BETWEEN THE DESIGN DECISIONS AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS IS TO PROVIDE A MEANS OF CAPTURE OF THE DESIGN RATIONALE AND THE CORRELATE THIS RATIONAL TO THE EFFECTS. TH ...

  9. LIGHTWEIGHT HIGH-POWER ELECTROCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS FOR SATELLITES

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRICAL ENERGY STORAGE FOR SATELLITES IS PROVIDED BY RECHARGEABLE NI-CD, OR MORE COMMONLY AT PRESENT, BY RECHARGEABLE NI-H2 BATTERY SYSTEMS. WHILE THESE WORK RATHER WELL FOR GEOSYNCHRONOUS ORBIT (GEO) APPLICATIONS, THEIR PREDICTED PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS ARE LESS THAN SATISFACTORY FOR THE MORE DEMANDING LOW EARTH ORBIT (LEO) SATELLITE APPLICATIONS. IN TERMS OF POWER OUTPUT PER UNIT WEIGHT, ...

  10. HIGH SPEED INFERENCE ON 1750A

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

    PROGRESS IN EXPERT SYSTEMS IS MAKING IT POSSIBLE TO REALIZE PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS IN A WIDE RANGE OF SPACE SYSTEM TASKS. THE OPERATIONAL EMPLOYMENT OF EXPERT SYSTEMS ON SPACE PLATFORMS WILL BE DRIVEN BY THE EFFICIENT UTILIZATION OF COMPUTING RESOURCES WITHIN SPACE SYSTEM ENVIRONMENTS. THIS DOCUMENT PROPOSES TO IDENTIFY CHARACTERISTICS/ATTRIBUTES REQUIRED FOR SPACE SYSTEM APPLICATIONS, IDENTIFY TH ...
