  1. INVESTIGATION OF AN AUDIO FEEDBACK SYSTEM ALLOWING VISUALLY IMPAIRED ACCESS TO GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACES

    SBC: Atg            Topic: N/A

    THE PROLIFERATION OF GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACES (GUIS) IN PERSONAL COMPUTERS, SUCH AS MICROSOFT WINDOWS AND MACINTOSH, IS A THREAT TO VISUALLY IMPAIRED PERSONS' ABILITY TO USE COMPUTERS BECAUSE GUIS REPRESENT INFORMATION ICONICLY AND SPATIALLY, AS WELL AS TEXTUALLY. THE GUIS VISUAL ORIENTATION MAKES GUIS DIFFICULT FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED TO ACCESS THROUGH TRADITIONAL ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES. WE PR ...

  2. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE POSSIBILITY OF UTILIZING COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE LETTER-QUALITY OR DOT-MATRIX PRINTERSFOR BRAILLE OUTPUT WHEN USED WITH A MICROCOMPUTER.

    SBC: Duffy Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE POSSIBILITY OF UTILIZING COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE LETTER-QUALITY OR DOT-MATRIX PRINTERSFOR BRAILLE OUTPUT WHEN USED WITH A MICROCOMPUTER. THE BRAILLE-OUTPUT ENVISIONED WOULD BE GRADE I BRABRAILLE SINCE GRADE II WOULD NORMALLY REQUIRE TRANSCRIPTION BY AN EX AN EXPERIENCED BRAILLIST. THIS CONCEPT IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE AN INEXPENSIVE, AUTOMATED, AND RAPID SYSTEM OF BRAILLE- ...

  5. Improved Tungsten Penetrators

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Kinetic energy penetrators are currently relied upon as a way to defeat enemy armor. Historically these penetrators have been composed of unanium or tungsten based alloys due to their high densities. In addition to density, the deformation behavior of the alloy determines it's performance. A penetrator whose tip mushrooms or fractures on impact is less effective than a penetrator that retains it's ...

  8. Detection of Environmental Deterioration in Fiber-Reinforced Composites by FT-Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A number of advanced fiber-reinforced organic matrix composites employed in a variety of Army systems are exposed to environmental weathering and/or in-service loading. This may induce chemical, physical, and mechanical changes in the composite material, and ultimately lead to component failure. This proposal will develop a fiber optic based Fourier transform Raman (FT-Raman) spectrometer for the ...

  9. Diesel-Fired Self-Pumping Water Heater R&D

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A self-pumping water heater is proposed wherein a small portion of the water to be pumped is evaporated in a boiler and used to pressurize and heat the main stream of water. Unlike early slow direct-acting steam pumps, the proposed approach operates at moderate frequencies and is extremely compact. In Phase I, an analytical model describing the dynamics of the process would be formulated, and a pr ...
