  1. TRANSFORMATIONAL SYNTHESIS AND REASONING ABOUT THE FUTURE

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    TWO KEY PROBLEMS FOR BUILDING PRACTICAL YET GENERAL KNOWLEDGE-BASED PLANNING APPLICATIONS ARE 1) REPRESENTING THE PLAN AND 2) PROJECTING THE PROBABLE EFFECTS OF EXECUTING THE PLAN. BOTH OF THESE PROBLEMS REQUIRE TECHNIQUES FOR REASONING ABOUT THE FUTURE. THE REPRESENTATION AND THE PROJECTION PROBLEMS BOTH NEED TO BE SOLVED FOR THE PARTIAL AND ABSTRACT PLANS THAT WILL BE GENERATED AT INTERMEDIATE S ...

  2. A PROCEDURAL REASONING LANGUAGE FOR REAL-TIME MISSION PLANNING

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF THE RESEARCH IS TO DESIGN AND DEVELOP A CONCURRENT GOAL-DIRECTED PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE THAT IS SUITABLE FOR EMBEDDED SYSTEM REAL-TIME MISSION PLANNING. THIS LANGUAGE IS DESIGNATED THE PROCEDURAL REASONING LANGUAGE (PRL) SINCE IT MIXES TRADITIONAL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FEATURES WITH GOAL-DIRECTED REASONING CONSTRUCTS IN A PROCEDURAL FORMAT. PRL IS A VISUAL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE TH ...

  3. EVALUATION OF HETEROJUNCTION INTERFACES USING ELECTRO BEAM ELECTROREFLECTANCE

    SBC: Charles Evans & Associates            Topic: N/A

    IN PHASE I, THE INITIAL CHARACTERIZATION OF ELECTRONIC STRUCTURE AT ALGAAS/GAAS INTERFACES BY ELECTRON BEAM ELECTRO-REFLECTANCE (EBER) IS PROPOSED, SPECIFICALLY FOR THE INVESTIGATION OF QUANTUM WELL AND HEMT STRUCTURES. THESE INTERFACES HAVE BEEN STUDIED BY RELATED TECHNIQUES, AND HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO POSSESS UNIQUE SPECTRAL FEATURES. NONETHELESS, BOTH FUNDAMENTAL AND APPLIED QUESTIONS REMAIN ABOUT ...

  4. Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter Based Compact Spectra-Polarimetric Active Imager for Long-Wave IR Operation

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is critical to extract maximum information from IR images for target detection, identification and classification systems. The physical information in an image is contained in basically four parameters namely the intensity, phase, polarization andwavelength of the received light. Besides acquiring intensity variations, rapid collection of corresponding polarization signatures at desired wavel ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. NEUROCOMPUTER FOR IMAGE/SPECTRAL PATTERN RECOGNITION AND ANALYSIS

    SBC: Hnc, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEUROPHYSIOLOGICAL RESEARCH IN VISION HAS SHOWN THAT MANY ASPECTS OF PREATTENTIVE VISION PROCESSING ENTAIL SIMPLE ALGORITHMS WHICH ARE IMPLEMENTED IN A HIGHLY PARALLEL ARCHITECTURE. LIKEWISE, ARTIFICIAL NEURAL SYSTEM RESEARCH AND APPLICATIONS HAVE RESULTED IN MANY PARADIGMS WHICH SHARE MANY OF THE SAME PROCESSING STEPS. WE PROPOSE TO DESIGN A SINGLE, UNIFIED TWO-DIMENSIONAL NEURAL NET PROCESSOR AR ...

  10. 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 ...
