  1. Wire Insulation Incorporating Self-Healing Polymers (WIISP)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: T601

    NextGen Aeronautics, Inc. and their partner, Virginia Tech, propose to develop a self-healing material for wire insulation using a class of poly(ethylene-co-methacrylic acid) (EMAA) and poly(tetramethylene oxide) ionomer polymers. The self-healing property of these materials is strongly correlated with the thermal processes that occur during and after damage initiation. Recent experimental result ...

  4. Unified Representation for Collaborative Visualization of Planetary Terrain Data

    SBC: DigitalFish, Inc.            Topic: T1101

    We propose to apply to planetary terrain mapping an alternative, multiresolution method, subdivision surfaces (subdivs), in place of conventional digital elevation maps (DEMs) and fixed-resolution meshes. The proposed research is innovative in that it presents a new setting for subdivs that demands novel extensions to subdivision algorithms, techniques and theory. The primary objectives of this wo ...

  5. Unified Representation for Collaborative Visualization and Processing of Terrain Data

    SBC: DigitalFish, Inc.            Topic: T401

    We build upon our prior work applying subdivision surfaces (subdivs) to planetary terrain mapping. Subdivs are an alternative, multi-resolution method with many advantages over conventional digital elevation maps (DEM's) and fixed-resolution meshes. The proposed research is innovative in presenting a new setting for subdivs demanding novel extensions to subdiv algorithms, techniques and theory as ...
