  1. THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A SIMPLE YET ACCURATE APPROACH TO MEASURING THE POSITION AND ORIENTATION OF A ROBOT.

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A SIMPLE YET ACCURATE APPROACH TO MEASURING THE POSITION AND ORIENTATION OF A ROBOT. THE MECHANISM CAN BE USED TO MAKE BOTH STATIC AND DYNAMIC MEASUREMENTS. TWO VERSIONS OF THE DESIGN ARE PROPOSED; THE FIRST VERSION HAVING HIGH ACCURACY OVER A SMALL WORK VOLUME,AND THE SECOND VERSION HAVING LOWER ACCURACY OVER A WORK VOLUME WHICH WOULD ALLOW POSE MEASUREMENT OVER THE ENTIRE ...

  2. NOAA WEATHER RADIO COVERAGE MAPPING SYSTEM

    SBC: MCCREARY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DISSEMINATION OF TIMELY WEATHER DATA IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT AS THE POPULATION DENSITY OF THE UNITED STATES INCREASES. AS THE SOLE GOVERNMENT OPERATED RADIO SYSTEM PROVIDING DIRECT WARNINGS TO PRIVATE HOMES, THENOAA WEATHER RADIO (NWR) SYSTEM IS CRITICAL FOR DISSEMINATING NATURAL DISASTER WARNINGS AND THE TIMELY DISSEMINATION OF WEATHER DATA. THE NEED FOR A LOW COST, REAL TIME COVER ...

  3. SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS OF HIGH CLOUDS IN THE TROPICS AND CLIMATE CHANGE

    SBC: Mentor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THREE ASPECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE INVOLVING VERY HIGH TROPICAL CLOUDS ARE: (1) WHETHER CHANGES IN HIGH CLOUD PARAMETERS LEAD TO POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK IN CO2 EFFECTS ON CLIMATIC TEMPERATURE CHANGES; (2) DO CHANGES IN THE HEIGHTS OF CLOUD TOPS AND CLOUD AMOUNT, OR CLOUDS WHICH REACH TO THE TROPICAL TROPOPAUSE, AFFECT THE AMOUNT OFWATER VAPOR IN THE LOWER STRATOSPHERE AND INDIRECTLY THE ANTARCT ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF MODULAR, HIGH PERFORMANCE FLUIDIC COMPONENTS FOR VENTILATION CONTROL IN NUCLEAR FACILITIES

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VENTILATION SYSTEMS FOR NUCLEAR FACILITIES MUST HAVE VERY HIGH RELIABILITY AND EFFECTIVENESS. FLUIDIC VORTEX AMPLIFIERS, EJECTOR PUMPS AND OTHER TYPE OF COMPONENTS OFFERTHE HIGHEST DEGREE OF RELIABILITY IN THESE VENTILATION SYSTEM APPLICATIONS BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO-MOVING-PARTS TO WEAR OUT, RELATIVELY FAST RESPONSE, REQUIRE LITTLE OR NO MAINTENANCE AND SOME CASES ARE CHEAPER THAN EQUIVALENT CONVENT ...

  6. NON-INVASIVE, NON CONTACT, MULTICONDUCTOR CURRENT SENSOR

    SBC: Energy Teller Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POWER MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL ARE MAJOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT AND ENERGY CONSERVATION GROWTH INDUSTRIES. NEWLY PATENTED CURRENT TO VOLTAGE TRANSDUCER (CVT) TECHNOLOGY IS SMALLER, SAFER AND LESS EXPENSIVE THAN CTS. IN ADDITION, THIS NON-CONTACT CVT MONITORS CURRENT IN MULTICONDUCTOR CABLES NON-INVASIVELY--CTS CANNOT. RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO EXPAND THE UNDERSTANDING, EASE OF APPLICATION AND ACCURACY OF TH ...

  7. A GAS-FIRED LIQUEFIER FOR NATURAL GAS RECOVERY FROM REMOTE LOCATIONS

    SBC: General Pneumatics Corp            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT CONSISTS OF A MOBILE, SELF-CONTAINED, GAS-FIREDNATURAL GAS LIQUEFIER SYSTEM FOR THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY OF NATURAL GAS FROM "CAPPED" WELLS IN REMOTE LOCATIONS. THE SYSTEM IS AN INNOVATIVE ARRANGEMENT OF MULTIPLE, TRUCK-MOUNTED STIRLING LIQUEFIER MODULES THAT LIQUEFY METHANE FOR RECOVERY FROM THE WELLHEAD GAS WHILE UTILIZING THE HEAVIER FRACTIONS OF THE NATURAL GAS FOR COMBUSTION TO POWE ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A PULSED MHD SOURCE FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC SOUNDING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THE MEASUREMENT OF THE ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY OF THE EARTH'S CRUST IS OF GREAT VALUE IN THE EXPLORATION FOR AND THE DELINEATION OF RESOURCES. THIS INFORMATION CAN ALSO SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCE UNDERSTANDING OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE CRUST, ITS CURRENT COMPOSITION AND STRUCTURE, AND THE FORCES WITHIN IT. THE PREFERRED METHOD OF ELECTROMAGNETIC SOUNDING (EMS) IS TO INDUCE AN EL ...

  9. AN ADVANCED CONCEPT FOR COST-EFFECTIVE PRESSURIZED FLUIDIZED BED COMBUSTION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    MTCI'S ALTERNATIVE SECOND-GENERATION ADVANCED PFBC CONCEPT EMPLOYS A PULSE COMBUSTION-BASED COMBUSTOR ISLAND IN THE TOPPING CYCLE. THE PULSE COMBUSTOR ACTS AS A VITIATED AIR BURNER AND SERVES TO INCREASE THE FLUE GAS TEMPERATURE FROM ABOUT 1600 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AT THE EXIT OF THE PFBC TO ABOUT 2000 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AT THE INLET TO THE GAS TURBINE. THE COMBUSTOR ISLAND INCLUDES A COMBINED SULFU ...

  10. AN ADVANCED OIL SHALE RETORTING TECHNOLOGY FOR SYNCRUDE OIL

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SYNCRUDE OIL OBTAINED BY RETORTING OIL SHALE REPRESENTS A POTENTIAL SOURCE OF FUEL AND CHEMICAL FEEDSTOCK. THE EXTENT OF TOTAL U.S. RESOURCES GREATER THAN 15 GALLONS OF SYNCRUDE OIL PER TON OF OIL SHALE IS ESTIMATED TO BE 2.5 TRILLION BBL. THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OIL SHALE RETORTING TECHNOLOGY IS NOT ECONOMIC BECAUSE OF A NUMBER OF FACTORS, INCLUDING THE LACK OF A VIABLE ABOVE-GROUND RETORTING PROCES ...
