  2. Comparative Gene Sequence/Expression Analysis of Pathogenic and Non-Pathogenic Micro-Organisms

    SBC: EGEA BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Biological warfare (BW) and bioterrorism are significant and increasing global threats. Genetic engineering made possible by the Human Genome Project may allow the development of novel BW agents and escalation of the BW threat. Major problems inbiological weapons defense are the identification of the biological agent, determining the pathogenic genes, and providing counteragents including vaccin ...

  3. Computer Assisted Reasoning for Robust Strategies

    SBC: EVOLVING LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    Decision makers often confront deep uncertainty where standard decision support tools fail to provide support. Sophisticated planners seek strategies robust across a wide range of plausible scenarios. But most analytical tools attempt to optimize for aparticular future lending little aid in the search for robust minimal regret strategies. Robustness is more challenging computationally than opti ...

  4. MEMS RF Switches with Ultra-High Switching Speeds

    SBC: GEOSPACE RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed investigation focuses on the research and development of a fundamentally new, high-speed, radio-frequency (RF) switch. It is designed for frequencies in the range 1-100 GHz. The switch is predicted on thin-film microelectromechanical systems(MEMS) technology with piezoelectric actuation. In general, piezoelectric materials develop strain when an electric field is present, which allows ...

  5. High Performance Uncooled Sensor for Automotive Applications

    SBC: INDIGO SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase II of this program, Indigo Systems proposes to complete the design of a 324x124 uncooled microbolometer focal plane array (FPA) and fabricate the Readout Integrated Circuit (ROIC). The FPA will serve as the key enabler of a low-cost,high-sensitivity, high-reliability night vision sensor (NVS) with utility in both commercial and military applications. The sensor is intended primarily for ...

  6. Case-Based Planning and Construction of Adaptive Software

    SBC: INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Software development continues to be an ad hoc endeavor without much of a plan to guide the development. Nevertheless, software visionaries speculate that one day an engineer will be able to specify the function that a software module is intended toperform, and then a set of agents, each associated with a debugged module, would be able to coordinate among themselves and synthesize the desired resu ...

  7. Magnetic MEMS Switches for RF Missile Seeker Applications

    SBC: MICROLAB            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed here consists of design, fabrication, packaging, and characterization of latching magnetic RF MEMS switches operational from dc through 40GHz. The active switching component of the device is a movable ferromagnetic cantilever thatelectrically shunts a gap in an on-chip transmission line (CPW and/or microstrip) to turn the switch ON and opens the gap to turn the switch OFF. Packag ...

  8. Group Algorithms for Surveillance and Precision Tracking (GrASP)

    SBC: ORINCON            Topic: N/A

    A surveillance system needs to accurately locate and identify not only single targets, but also groups of targets engaged in a common activity. Existing tracking systems are capable of tracking individual targets quite accurately; however, they fail to useinformation related to group behavior in order to improve these estimates. As part of our Phase I work, ORINCON developedAlgorithms those are ab ...

  9. Dynamic Group Workflow Collaboration Using Agent-Based Asynchronous and Fault-Tolerant System

    SBC: PROMIND SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Agents on the Web are ideal vehicle to create 'semantic Web' - or Web that has inherent and flexible business logic available to its users. The effort of this proposal is focused on achieving this goal using the methodology and softwaredeveloped in Phase I and expanding both the methodology and software with new commercial extensions and features (such as XML, Jini/WAP, ODBC, etc.) as ...

  10. Direct Chemo-Mechanical Actuation

    SBC: QUOIN INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A high efficiency and precision control pneumatic/mechanical actuator, which converts chemical to mechanical energy, will extend human performance and provide advantages in reducing system weight and bulk. In Phase I Quoin successfully built and tested afeasibility demonstration actuator. A 1-inch-diameter impulse turbine, driven by bottled nitrogen gas, delivered torque to a ball screw linear out ...
