  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 ...

  5. ARCHITECTURE EVALUATION TEST BED

    SBC: ADVANCED SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    THE ESTIMATION OF THE COMPUTER CAPACITIES REQUIRED TO SUPPORT A MISSION ARE USUALLY THE SUBJECT OF MUCH DISCUSSION. ESTIMATES OF THE WORKLOAD AND OTHER PARAMETERS VARY GREATLY. THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT MOST APPLICATIONS DO NOT FIT THE TRADITIONAL TIMING AND SIZING EFFORT. NONE OF THE THREE COMPONENTS (WORKLOAD, PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS AND ARCHITECTURE) IS USUALLY PRESENT. WE CONTEND THAT THE M ...

  7. LAMINAR/TURBULENT FLOW DETECTOR

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL BOUNDARY LAYER ACOUSTIC MONITOR (BLAM) PROGRAM PRODUCED BLAM GAUGES WHICH WERE USED ON MINUTEMAN FLIGHTS TO TEST FLOW AROUND RE-ENTRY VEHICLES (RV), AND DETECT THE LOCATION OF THE TRANSITION TO TURBULENT FLOW. IT IS POSTULATED THAT THESE BLAM GAUGES CAN BE RECONFIGURED TO OPERATE TO DETECT TURBULENT FLOW IN WATER TUNNELS. IN ORDER TO EFFECT THIS REDESIGN, THE WATER TUNNEL ENV ...
