  3. DIGITAL INFRA-RED EYE COMMAND TRANSDUCER

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH TECHNOLOGY IS ADVANCING AT AN EVER INCREASING PACE,ITS APPLICATION FOR USE BY HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS HAS BEEN SLOW. SEVERELY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS OFTEN REQUIRE SOME TYPE OF "HIGH TECHNOLOGY" MEANS TO ENABLE THEM TO HAVE A DEGREE OF MOBILITY. THE SPECIFIC AIM OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF USING ELECTRO-OPTICS AS A MEANS FOR THE HANDICAPPED TO EFFECT CONTROL OF HIS/HER ...

  6. MONOLITHIC GAAS LIGHT-EMITTING DIODES ON SILICON VLSI CIRCUITS ELEMENTS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OPTOELECTRONIC SOURCES, INTEGRATED AS MONOLITHIC ELEMENTS ON SILICON VLSI CHIPS, OFFER IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES IN THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION WITHIN THE CHIP OR BETWEEN CHIPS IN ADVANCED COMPUTER SYSTEMS. THE SPEED OF OPTICAL-INTEGRATED VLSI DEVICES IS EXPECTED TO BE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN EQUIVALENT VLSI WITH METALLIC INTERCONNECTS, DUE TO ABSENCE OF THE RC DELAY INHERENT IN THE METALLIC CONDU ...

  7. OPTICAL INTERCONNECTION TECHNIQUES USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT AIMS TO EXPLOIT THE HIGH-SPEED ELECTRO-OPTIC PROPERTIES OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS (FLCS) TO MAKE OPTICAL CROSSBAR SWITCHES. THESE SWITCHES WOULD ALLOW LARGE NUMBERS (HUNDREDSTO THOUSANDS) OF INPUT LIGHT BEAMS MODULATED AT GHZ RATES TO BE CONNECTED IN ANY POSSIBLE ONE-TO-ONE PATTERN TO AN EQUALLY LARGE NUMBER OF OUTPUTS. THE PROPOSED SWITCH GEOMETRIES PROMISE THAT ONLY A ...

  8. ELECTRON BEAM STABILITY IN COMPACT RECIRCULATING ACCELERATORS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    STABLE BEAM TRANSPORT IS A CENTRAL ISSUE IN DEVELOPING COMPACT HIGH CURRENT ELECTRON BEAM RECIRCULATING INDUCTION ACCELERATORS. POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS INSTABILITIES INCLUDE THE NEGATIVE MASS, THE BEAM BREAKUP (FOR INDUCTIVE GAPS DESIGNS), AND THREE-WAVE (FOR STRONG FOCUSING DESIGNS). MISSION RESEARCH CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DETERMINE THEIR SERIOUSNESS FOR HIGH CURRENT RECIRCULATING ACCELERATORS AND ...

  9. APPLICATION OF ADAPTIVE NEURAL NETWORKS

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO IDENTIFY SPECIFIC TACTICAL AVIONICS APPLICATIONS WHICH COULD BENEFIT FROM THE SPECIAL INFORMATION-PROCESSING CAPABILITIES OF ADAPTIVE NEURAL NETWORKS. FOR SPECIFIC TACTICAL APPLICATIONS, A TRADE-OFF ANALYSIS OF SPECIFIC NEURAL NETWORK ARCHITECTURES WILL BE CONDUCTED WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF SELECTING THE MOST PROMISING ARCHITECTURES. A PHASE II PLAN WILL BE P ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF ANGULAR ACCELEROMETER

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH EFFORT COMPLETED RECENTLY FOR THE AIR FORCE IDENTIFIED NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR ANGULAR MOTION MEASUREMENT. TWO CONCEPTS WERE FOUND WHICH APPEAR TO OFFER POTENTIAL FOR AN EXCELLENT COMBINATION OF SMALL SIZE, WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE, WIDE BANDWIDTH AND EASE OF FABRICATION AND UTILIZATION. ONE DEVICE, CALLED A FLUID-FILLED BENDER BEAM, USES PIEZOCERAMICELEMENTS TO PRODUCE A SIGNAL PROPORTIONAL TO ...
