  2. Remarkable Reading Machine: Your Child

    SBC: Media Group of CT.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop a video/electronic media training program to strengthen preschool children's beginning reading skills. Many children in the United States, particularly children from low-income families, begin kindergarten unprepared to develop beginning reading skills. They lack the kind of experiences that research indicates are crucial to being ready to learn how to rea ...

  3. Space-Flight Assessment of a Small-Scale Collins Type Cryocooler Concept

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

    A compact, reliable, efficient and inexpensive cryocooler requiring less than 1 kW of power for 2W of cooling at 10 Kelvin is being developed and will be demonstrated. This performance is at least twice as efficient as the best current state-of-the-artfor small low-temperature cryocoolers. The proposed technical approach, whose technical feasibility and suitability for space-based applications h ...

  6. An Efficient Computational Approach to Target Discrimination

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Target discrimination is one of the critical components of the midcourse phase processing in providing effective missile defense. Currently, detailed models that use an elaborate discrete Bayesian network predict the sensor phenomenology for each possibletarget type and sensor. The predicted sensor phenomenology is compared to the observed phenomenology, and the target type estimate is updated. ...

  7. Physical Model-Based Target Discrimination in Clutter using Surface-Based Radar

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    With the appropriate processing algorithms, surface-based radar has the potential to discriminate reentry vehicles from other threat objects in the presence of clutter, which is a critical part of the BMD problem. Discrimination is based on resolving theobjects in range, and characterizing each object's shape and motion. The algorithm we propose is the model-based approach, which applies a hypot ...

  9. Rapid Radiation Failure Analysis of Digital Circuits Using a Computing Farm


    The failure of digital circuits due to radiation using simulation was not addressed in the past due to several obstacles. First, radiation failure models, radiation faults dictionaries and the specification of susceptibility to radiation are not availablein the current hardware description languages (HDL) like IEEE 1076 (VHDL) or IEEE 1364 (Verilog). Second, the simulation that will gather useful ...

  10. Z-Fiber for Improved Through Thickness Thermal Conductivity of MMC's

    SBC: AZTEX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aztex has developed a technology to reinforce composites called Z-Fiberr insertion. Normally standard carbon fiber pins are inserted through the thickness of an uncured carbon prepreg laminate using ultrasonic energy. The resulting product has superiordamage tolerance. It is possible to adapt this process to use thermally conductive pins and to insert them in the Z direction through a pitch based ...
