  2. COMBINED OBJECT-ORIENTED AND NEURAL NETWORK APPROACHES FOR SPATIAL DATA MODELS

    SBC: Quba Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS EMPLOYING OBJECT-ORIENTED DATA MODELS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE FEASIBILITY OF REPRESENTING COMPLEX AND ABSTRACT CARTOGRAPHIC FEATURES AS COMPOSITES OF SIMPLER FEATURES. SEPARATE DEVELOPMENTS IN NEURAL-NETWORK TECHNOLOGY HAVE SHOWN PROMISE IN RECOGNIZING OR EXTRACTING SPATIAL FEATURES WITHIN SAMPLE DATA SETS. COMBINING OBJECT-ORIENTED AND NEURAL-NETWORKS APPROACHES MAY LEAD TO NEW ...

  3. ASSESSING AND INCREASING THE TESTABILITY OF OBJECT-ORIENTED SOFTWARE

    SBC: Cigital, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOFTWARE HAS BECOME EXPENSIVE; BY THE YEAR 2000, IT REPORTEDLY WILL BE A 2 TRILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY WORLDWIDE. TO REDUCE COSTS, IT IS VITAL TO REUSE CODE. OBJECT-ORIENTED (00) LANGUAGES ARE TOUTED TODAY FOR THE EASE WITH WHICH SOFTWARE COMPONENTS WRITTEN IN THEM CAN BE REUSED. DUE TO THIS CHARACTERISTIC (ALONG WITH OTHER BENEFITS FO 00 SOFTWARE), SOFTWARE VENDORS ARE BEGINNING TO WRITE CRITICAL AP ...

  5. ROLE-BASED ACCESS CONTROL

    SBC: Seta Corp.            Topic: N/A

    ROLE-BASED ACCESS CONTROL (RBAC) IS AN IDEAN WHOSE TIME HAS COME. DAC AND MAC, AS SPECIFIED IN DOD'S LANDMARK ORANGE BOOK, ARE INADEQUATE FOR MANY COMMERCIAL AND CIVILIAN GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS. DAC IS TOO WEAK AND MAC IS FOCUSSED ON CONFIDENTIALITY OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. RBAC HAS THEREFORE EMERGED AS A THIRD FORM OF ACCESS CONTROL TO FILL THIS URGENT NEED. ALTHOUGH THERE IS A GROWING CONSEN ...

  6. Perflouromembranes for Low Cost Oxygen Enrichment of Aquaculture

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Success in aquaculture depends heavily on delivery of oxygen to fish. Currently, liquid oxygen and on-site generation by pressure swing adsorption (PSA) are two methods for supplying oxygen to aquaculture. Both are costly and have absorption efficiency problems. Membrane contractors, paddle wheels, and porous pipes are used with limited success to enhance oxygen transport to aquaculture. We ha ...

  7. Algorithms for Health Care Quality Management and Outcomes Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    American health care is in the midst of momentous change. Quality improvement principles are being used increasingly to enhance productivity and efficiency of health care delivery and to help contain costs. In producing patient outcomes and resource utilization measures, it is vital to control appropriately for case mix (i.e., differences in patients due, e.g., to illness severity) in the predicti ...

  8. Characterization of Consolidation of Non-Spherical Powders

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    We propose to characterize the early stage of consolidation of non-spherical powders to further the development of process models to enable simulation of powder metallurgy manufacturing for the consumer market, especially the automotive industry. Typically, spherical powders with a narrow size distribution are used for aerospace applications, while low-cost powders with irregular shapes and a wide ...

  10. High-Temperature Thermal Conductivity Measurements of Ceramic Powders

    SBC: MetSys Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Not Available It is proposed to develop an advanced field apparatus for measuring the thermal conductivity of ceramic powders over the range of temperatures from room temperature to 1500 to 2500 K, depending upon the particular material and its compatibility with other materials. The apparatus will have the capability to carry out fully automated thermal conductivity measurements, by transient or ...
