  1. A FRAMEWORK FOR DISTRIBUTED PLANNING AND SCHEDULING SYSTEMS

    SBC: I-Kinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    KNOWLEDGE-BASED PLANNING AND SCHEDULING (P&S) ENGINES REQUIRE THE INTEGRATION OF SEPARATE DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (DBMS) FACILITIES IN ORDER TO MANAGE AND SHARE LARGE AMOUNTS OF SCHEDULING DATA AND KNOWLEDGE. PLANNING AND SCHEDULING ENGINES USE PARTICULARLY RICH DATA MODELS FOR THE REPRESENTATION OF ARBITRARILY COMPLEX INTERRELATIONSHIPS AND CONSTRAINTS. CONVENTIONAL DBMS TECHNOLOGIES, SUCH AS ...

  3. A New Sol-gel Host Material For Improved Solid Dye Lasers

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Triton Systems, Inc., proposes an innovative exploratory research program to fabricate and test, by lasing, a new and unique sol-gel host material for improved dye lasers, called "SupraGel." These materials will allow for the development of dye lasers of improved efficiency, longer lifetime, higher mecahnical integrity, improved machineability, and improved optical quality. Specifically, the resul ...

  4. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  5. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  6. Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR)

    SBC: MZEAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Use of"Smartphones"and cellular networks is becoming an increasing priority for military applications. By placing the source of information directly with the solider on the ground via a Smartphone, the vision of"every soldier a sensor"becomes attainable. mZeal proposes to facilitate this vision with the Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR) system. AMMSTAR will capture photographic ...

  7. AERODYNAMIC CONTRAIL PREDICTION AND CONTROL

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

    THE EXHAUST GASES LEAVING AN AIRCRAFT THAT IS FLYING AT ALTITUDES IN THE HIGH TROPOSPHERE AND LOWER STRATOSPHERE (30,000 TO 60,000 FT) ARE SUBJECT TO COLD TEMPERATURES AS THEY MIX WITH THE AMBIENT AIR. AERODYNE RESEARCH, INC. (ARI) HAS RE- CENTLY MADE SIGNIF ICANT CONTRIBUTIONS IN TACKLING PHYSICAL AND TECHNICAL PROBLEMS RELATED TO CONTRAIL F ORMATION. UNDER NASA SPONSORSHIP, ARI HAS BEEN STUDYING ...

  8. AIRBORNE COHERENT LIDAR SYSTEM FOR THE DETECTION OF CLEAR AIR TURBULENCE

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    CLEAR AIR TURBULENCE (CAT), WHICH CAN CONTAIN DIFFERENTIAL WIND VELOCITIES OF 100'S OF METERS PER SECOND, ARE A SEVERE DANGER TO AIRCRAFT WHICH ENCOUNTER THEM WITHOUT WARNING. WE DESCRIBE AN EYE-SAFE LIDAR SYSTEM DESIGNED TO PROVIDE 10 SECONDS OF WARNING TO AN AIRCRAFT TRAVELING AT 400 KNOTS. THE SENSOR DETECTS THE PRESENCE OF AIR TURBULENCE BY MEASURING THE VARIANCE IN THE DOPPLER-SHIFTED BACKSCA ...

  9. An Intelligent Scalable Control Architecture For Distributed Nonlinear Systems

    SBC: NeuroDyne Inc            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop and implement a learning controller architecture for control of complex distributed nonlinear systems with multiple localized equipment controllers and a variety of sensor feedback. The fundamental philosophy of this approach is to optimize control at a local level through the use of neural networks and optimal control techniques such as dynamic programming, and to utiliz ...

  10. AN ORGANIC MOLECULAR SYSTEM FOR NONLINEAR OPTICS

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    APPLICATIONS OF NONLINEAR OPTICAL (NLO) MATERIALS TO TECHNOLOGIES SUCH AS OPTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING, SWITCHING AND COMPUTING SYSTEMS, HAS BEEN INTENSIVELY STUDIED DURING THE LAST DECADE. STILL, THE LACK OF NLO MATERIALS WITH ENHANCED SECOND AND THIRD ORDER SUSCEPTIBILITY LIMITS DEVELOPMENT OF THESE APPLICATIONS. ORGANIC NLO MATERIALS ARE OFTEN CITED AS HAVING THE BEST LONG-RANGE PROMISE FOR NLO DE ...
