  1. DIAMOND TRANSMISSION X-RAY SOURCES

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    X-RAY IMAGING AND INSPECTIONS PLAY AN INCREASING ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF MODERN MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUE. THE INCREASING DEMAND FOR HIGH-RESOLUTION INSPECTION AND FOR INSPECTION AS AN ADJUNCT TO CRITICAL MANUFACTURING STEPS HAS GENERATED A NEED FOR NEW, FLEXIBLE, COMPACT, HIGH-RESOLUTION SOURCES. THE USE OF THIN-FILM CONVERTORS MOUNTED ON COOLED DIAMOND TRANSMISSION SUBSTRATES ...

  3. ADVANCED FARE PAYMENT MEDIA

    SBC: Echelon Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF SMART CARDS FOR THE PUBLIC TRANSIT INDUSTRY HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED. THERE IS A PERCEPTION THAT SMART CARDS CAN BE USED TO REDUCE THE TOTAL TRANSACTIONCOSTS ASSOCIATED WITH FARE PAYMENT, TO IMPROVE SECURITY, REDUCE FRAUD AND IMPROVE SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND RIDERSHIP. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATENESS OF THESE CLAIMS; THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY R ...

  4. TURBINE ENGINE ROTOR SYSTEM FAILURE PREDICTION AND PREVENTION

    SBC: Systems Control Technology,            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A METHODOLOGY AND A PROTOTYPE DESIGN FOR A SYSTEM CAPABLE OF PREDICTING FAILURE OF ROTATING PARTS IN TURBINE ENGINES. SCT PROPOSES AN INNOVATIVE, INTEGRATED APPROACH THAT ASSIMILATES DATA FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES TO TREND ENGINE PERFORMANCE AND HEALTH. INDICATIONS OF COMPONENET FAILURE WILL BE IDENTIFIED AND ACTUAL DATA WILL BE COMPARED AGAINST THE INDICAT ...

  5. ANALOG CMOS NEURAL CIRCUITS FOR SPEECH RECOGNITION

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    REAL-TIME RECOGNITION OF SPEAKER-INDEPENDENT CONNECTED SPEECH HAS PROVEN TO BE A DIFFICULT PROBLEM FOR ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS. LOW-PRECISION HIGHLY-PARALLEL ANALOG NEURAL NETWORKS HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO RECOGNIZE SPEAKER-DEPENDENT SMALL-VOCABULARY CONNECTED SPEECH USING STANDARD COMPONENTS. THE REGENT WILL RESEARCH AND DEVELOP MASSIVELY-PARALLEL CUSTOM INTEGRATED CIRCUITS THAT WILL PERFORM THIS TASK, USIN ...

  6. A NOVEL LINEAR SYNAPSE DESIGN FOR ANALOG NEURAL NETWORKS

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TO BUILD FAST INEXPENSIVE ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK HARDWARE, A HIGH-PERFORMANCE BUT COMPACT SYNAPSE CIRCUIT IS REQUIRED. DIGITAL IMPLEMENTATIONS REQUIRE LARGE SYNAPSE CIRCUITS. EXISTING ANALOG SYNAPSE DESIGNS ARE HIGHLY NON-LINEAR OR REQUIRE EXPENSIVE FABRICATION PROCESSES. OUR NEW LINEAR SYNAPSE CIRCUIT IS SMALL, ALLOWS FOR ON-CHIP LEARNING, AND USES STANDARD CMOS BULK TECHNOLOGY AND SO RESULTIN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 National Science Foundation
  7. RESEARCHING CUSTOM KEYBOARD OVERLAYS FOR DISABLED COMPUTER USERS

    SBC: Unicorn Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DESIGN A FEASIBILITY STUDY THAT WILL CENTER ON THE NEEDS OF DISABLED PEOPLE AND THEIR ABILITY TO USE A COMPUTER TO LEARN MATH SCIENCE, AND ENGINEERING IN SCHOOL. THE STUDY WILL FOCUS ON COMPUTER KEYBOARDS AND THEIR USEFULNESS TO DISABLED STUDENTS. THE STUDY WILL DETERMINE WHETHER IT IS FEASIBLE TO RESEARCH CUSTOM KEYBOARD OVERLAYS FOR ALTERNATIVE, MEMBRANE KEYBOA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 National Science Foundation
  8. A LOW-COST OPTICAL WEATHER IDENTIFIER FOR AN AUTOMATED WEATHER OBSERVING SYSTEM

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE TYPE OF PRECIPITATION (RAIN, SNOW, FOG/HAZE, HAIL) HAS TRACTIONALLY RELIED ON HUMAN JUDGMENT. RECENTLY, THE WAVE PROPAGATION LABORATORY OF DEVELOPED A TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMATIC WEATHER IDENTIFICATION USING LASER SCINTILLATION AND SCATTERING. THE TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TESTED IN FIELD OPERATION. HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM IS TOO CLUMSY AND EXPENSIVE FOR LARGE-SCALE FIELD ...

    SBIR Phase II 1985 Department of Transportation
  9. ICING MONITORING EQUIPMENT

    SBC: JONAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A RUGGED NEW DEVICE FOR MONITORING THE ONSET OF ICE FORMATION ON SURFACES OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES, ROADS, BRIDGES AND AIRCRAFTS, WILL BE DEVELOPED AND A PROTOTYPE WILL BE LABORATORY TESTED. THE NOVEL GAGE AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEM IS PARTLY BASED ON THE TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO MEASURE CONDUCTIVITY OF SOLUTIONS. BASED ON EXISTING TECHNOLOGY, AND ALREADY TESTED UNDER HIGH ...

  10. MAXIMIZATION OF AGAR BIOSYNTHESIS IN THE RED ALGAE

    SBC: Ocean Genetics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INTERNAL NEED EXISTS FOR A STABLE SOURCE OF HIGH-QUALITY PURIFIED AGAR (AGAROSE) FOR BIOCHEMICAL AND MICROBIOLOGICAL RESEARCH. MATERIAL IS CURRENTLY OBTAINED EXCLUSIVELY FROM NATURAL POPULATIONS BY LABOR-INTENSIVE METHODS, SINCE CULTURE SYSTEMS HAVE YET TO BE WIDELY DEVELOPED. PRESENT PRODUCTION OF AGAR IS THREATENED BY OVER-EXPLOITATION OF NATURAL POPULATIONS AND UNSTABLE SOCIO-POLITICAL SITUA ...
