  1. CRYSTALLOGRAPHY OF CERAMIC PARTICULATE IN METAL-MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: Advanced Microscopy Techniques            Topic: N/A

    METAL-PARTICULATE INTERFACES HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON THE PROPERTIES OF CERAMIC-REINFORCED METAL-MATRIX COMPOSITES. DESIRED INTERFACE CHARACTERISTICS ARE ADHERENCE, MECHANICAL TOUGHNESS AND RESISTANCE TO ENVIRONMENTAL ATTACK. IN TURN, THESE PROPERTIES ARE DICTATED BY SURFACE MORPHOLOGY, CHEMICAL COMPOSITION, SHAPE AND THE PRESENCE OF THIRD PHASES. STEPS MUST BE TAKEN TO CONTROL THE RELEVANT CHARACTE ...

  5. ENHANCED REMOVAL OF RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES BY FLUOROCARBON SURFACTANT SOLUTIONS

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

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH ADDRESSES THE APPLICATION OF ESI'S ENHANCED PARTICLE REMOVAL TO THE NON-DESTRUCTIVE DECONTAMINATION OF NUCLEAR EQUIPMENT. IN THIS PROCESS, THE PART TO BE CLEANED IS CONTACTED, UNDER CONDITIONS OF SHEAR, WITH A SOLUTION OF A HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT FLUOROCARBON SURFACTANT IN AN INERT PERFLUORINATED LIQUID. IT IS THEN RINSED WITH PERFLUORINATED LIQUID AND AIR DRIED. THE PERFLUORI ...

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Department of Commerce
  7. A 180 DEGREE FIELD-OF-VIEW FOVEAL AND PERIPHERAL CAMERA

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WIDE FIELD-OF-VIEW (FOV) CAMERAS TO DATE HAVE BEEN PLAGUED BY DISTORTION WHICH LIMITS THEIR USE IN TELEROBOTIC OPERATIONS. ONE REASON FOR THIS DISTORTION HAS BEEN THE NEED TO PROJECT A HEMISPHERICAL IMAGE ONTO A FLAT PLANE. Q-DOT PROPOSES A UNIQUE IMAGING SYSTEM WHICH UTILIZES A HEMISPHERICAL FOCAL PLANE TO MINIMIZE DISTORTION. THIS FOCAL PLANE SERVES TO INTERFACE WIDE FOV, FLY-EYE OPTICS TO A FLA ...

  8. ENHANCED UTILIZATION OF NWS HYDROLOGIC FORECAST INFORMATION

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT OF WATER SUPPLIES IS BECOMING CRITICAL AT THE SAME TIME THAT WATER MANAGEMENT OPERATIONS ARE GROWING MORE COMPLEX. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE (NWS) IS ENHANCING ITS ABILITY TO PROVIDE FORECASTING INFORMATION; HOWEVER; MOST WATER MANAGERS ARE UNAWARE OF THE VALUE OF THE INFORMATION AND HOW IT CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO WATER RESOURCES OPERATIONS. RTI WILL EXAMINE WAYS IN WH ...

  9. A USER-DRIVEN EVALUATION AND RE-DESIGN OF TECHNICAL INFORMATION

    SBC: The Reynolds Group (trg)            Topic: N/A

    TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE SPACE ENVIRONMENT SERVICES CENTER (SESSC) TO HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THEIR USERS USE SESC INFORMATION PRODUCTS, WE PROPOSE A USER-DRIVEN EVALUATION PROCESS BASED ON NATURALISTIC INQUIRY METHODS. AT THE END OF THIS PROCESS, WE WILL RECOMMEND SPECIFIC CHANGES TO THE SESC PRODUCTS AND THEIR DELIVERY FORMAT. PHASE I RESEARCH WILL INVOLVE DEVELOPING AN INTERVIEW PROT ...
