  6. ALGORITHM FOR DETECTING SLOWLY MOVING TARGETS WITH SBR

    SBC: Adaptive Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPACE BASED RADARS WITH LENS OR REFLECTOR ANTENNAS CAN READILY PROVIDE MULTIPLE BEAM OUTPUTS. OTHER SBR DESIGNED TO DETECT AND TRACK AIRCRAFT, INCLUDING SYSTEMS WITH CORPORATE FED ARRAY ANTENNAS, MAY PROVIDE MONOPULSE SUM AND DIFFERENCE OUTPUTS FOR ANGLE MEASUREMENT. A METHOD IS DESCRIBED FOR EXPLOITING THESE MULTIPLE BEAM OR MONOPULSE ANTENNA OUTPUTS FOR THE DETECTION OF SLOW-MOVING TARGETS WITH ...

  7. STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE IS PROPOSED USING THE THERMAL IGNITION COMBUSTION CHAMBER. THE ADIABATIC DIESEL ENGINE WITHOUT WATER OR AIR COOLING ALLOWS THE THERMAL IGNITION CHAMBER TO STORE HEAT DURING COMBUSTION AND RELEASE THE ENERGY FOR IGNITION IN THE FOLLOWING CYCLE. INJECTION OF FUEL ON TO 1800-2000 DEG. F WALL TEMPERATURE WILL PREPARE THE FUEL FOR ...

  10. TRANSFORMATIONAL SYNTHESIS AND REASONING ABOUT THE FUTURE

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    TWO KEY PROBLEMS FOR BUILDING PRACTICAL YET GENERAL KNOWLEDGE-BASED PLANNING APPLICATIONS ARE 1) REPRESENTING THE PLAN AND 2) PROJECTING THE PROBABLE EFFECTS OF EXECUTING THE PLAN. BOTH OF THESE PROBLEMS REQUIRE TECHNIQUES FOR REASONING ABOUT THE FUTURE. THE REPRESENTATION AND THE PROJECTION PROBLEMS BOTH NEED TO BE SOLVED FOR THE PARTIAL AND ABSTRACT PLANS THAT WILL BE GENERATED AT INTERMEDIATE S ...
