  5. ADVANCED FORCE CONTROL OF ELECTRIC MANIPULATORS WITH ADAPTIVE CRITIC NETWORKS

    SBC: Jameson Robotics            Topic: N/A

    RESPONSIVE AND SENSITIVE FORCE CONTROL IS ESSENTIAL FOR SOPHISTICATED ROBOT TASKS SUCH AS ASSEMBLY AND FINE MANIPULATION. HOWEVER, THIS KIND OF CONTROL IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR MANIPULATORS DRIVEN BY ELECTRIC MOTORS WITH GEARED TRANSMISSIONS, PRIMARILY DUE TO FRICTION IN THE DRIVE TRAIN. YET THESE TYPES OF MECHANICAL SYSTEMS ARE OFTEN THE MOST PRACTICAL FOR MANY APPLICATIONS. TWO PRIMARY TYPES OF CON ...

  6. AUTOMATED SUPPORT FOR CREATION AND MAINTENANCE OF LARGE SITUATION BASED ONTOLOGIES

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE CONTEXT OF INFORMATION MANAGEMENT, ONTOLOGY IS THE TASK OF EXTRACTING THE NATURE AND STRUCTURE OF A GIVEN EINGEERING, MANUFACTURING, BUSINESS, OR LOGISTICAL DOMAIN AND STORING IT INAN EXPRESSIVELY RICH, USABLE, COMPUTATIONALLY FEASIBLE REPRESENTATIONAL MEDIUM. AN ARRAY OF ONTOLOGY DATABASES IN USE ACROSS A WIDE VARIETYOF SUCH SYSTEMS WOULD REVOLUTIONIZE THE TASKS OF INFORMATION MANAGEMENT A ...

  7. BIOCORROSION/BIODETERIATION/BIOFOULING OF COATED METALS

    SBC: Bioindustrial Technologies, In            Topic: N/A

    MICROBIOLOGICALLY INFLUENCED CORROSION (MIC) OF MOST INDUSTRIALLY UTILIZED ALLOYS, INCLUDING THOSE USED IN MANY NAVAL APPLICATIONS, IS WELL ESTABLISHED. MIC OF COATED AND CATHODICALLY PROTECTED MATERIALS IS ALSO WELL DOCUMENTED. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WOULD EXAMINE THE ROLES OF NATURALLY OCCURRING MEMBERS OF MIC COMMUNITIES OTHER THAN BACTERIA; THE ALGAE, PROTOZOANS AND FUNGI IN MIC PROCESSES, INCL ...

  10. CDTE OPTICAL COMPONENTS IN LONG WAVELENGTH INFRARED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Xacton Corp            Topic: N/A

    INFRARED SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED FOR A VARIETY OF DEFENSE RELATED APPLICATIONS, SUCH AS: SURVEILLANCE, TARGET DETECTION, ACQUISITION AND TRACKING, MISSILE GUIDANCE, ETC. FOR MANY APPLICATIONS SUCH AS THOSE INVOLVING COLD-DIM TARGETS, THESE SYSTEMS NEED TO OPERATE IN THE VERY LONG WAVELENGTH REGION OF THE INFRARED SPECTRUM, E.G. 15-35 MICRONS CUTOFF. IN THIS WAVELENGTH REGION, THE AVAILABILITY OF SUITAB ...
