  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. 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. 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 ...

  5. PULSE TO DIGITAL CONVERSION SYSTEM

    SBC: Moscow Electronics Co            Topic: N/A

    THE COMPLETE DESIGN IS PRESENTED WITHIN THIS PROPOSAL FOR A SYSTEM WHICH WILL PROVIDE A PRECISE, ONE-STEP CONVERSION DIRECTLY FROM A PULSE TRAIN INPUT TO A DIGITIZED PULSE RATE OUTPUT. IT IS A DISTRIBUTED PROCESSOR SYSTEM EMPLOYING A MASTER CONTROL PROCESSOR AND FROM 2 TO 30 IDENTICAL PULSE MODULES. THE PULSE MODULE IS A STANDALONE UNIT WHICH PERFORMS THE PULSE PERIOD MEASUREMENT. THE MICROPROCESS ...

  6. PREDICTING 3-D WINDFLOWS AT VENDENBERG AFB USING A MESOSCALE NUMERICAL MODEL

    SBC: R*scan Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PREDICTION OF MESOSCALE DISPERSION, FOR EMERGENCY RESPONSE PURPOSES, IS CRITICALLY DEPENDENT UPON ACCURATELY FORECASTING THE 3-D WIND FIELD WITHIN THE DOMAIN OF INTEREST SEVERAL HOURS IN ADVANCE. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEMS, WHICH TYPICALLY USE SOME FORM OF GAUSSIAN DIFFUSION MODEL COMBINED WITH WIND FIELDS INTERPOLATED FROM SCATTERED SURFACE LAYER WIND MEASUREMENTS, ARE, UN ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
