  1. MOORED INSTRUMENT HIGH SPEED ACOUSTIC TELEMETRY SYSTEM

    SBC: Datasonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A REQUIREMENT FOR A RELIABLE, SECURE METHOD FOR RETRIEVAL OF DATA FROM MOORED INSTRUMENTATION ARRAYS. THESEARRAYS, WHICH CONTAIN CURRENT METERS, TIDE GAUGES, TEMPERATURE SENSORS, AND OTHER OCEANOGRAPHIC INSTRUMENTS, ACQUIRE AND STORE DATA OVER A PERIOD OF WEEKS OR MONTHS AND THEN ARE RETRIEVED, THE RESTORED DATA RECOVERED, AND THE INSTRUMENTS REDEPLOYED. RETRIEVAL AND DEPLOYMENT IS AN EXP ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF NEW UV/VUV RADIOMETRIC STANDARDS

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE ONLY A FEW RADIOMETRIC STANDARDS AVAILABLE IN THE 115-350 NM WAVELENGTH REGION. AMONG THEM ARE THE ARGON MINI-ARC AND THE DEUTERIUM LAMP. BOTH LAMPS PROVIDE STABLE SOURCES OF UV/VUV RADIATION, AND CAN BE CALIBRATED BOTH IN RADIANCE AND IRRADIANCE. HOWEVER, EACH HAS DISADVANTAGES THAT LIMIT ITS USEFULNESS AS A BENCHTOP OR SPACE-QUALIFIED STANDARD. ONE POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVE SECONDARY RADIOM ...

  7. REMOTE SENSING OF ESTUARINE AND NEAR-COAST SALINITY

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH IS PROPOSED TO DESIGN A MICROWAVE REMOTE SENSING SYSTEM TO CONDUCT AIRBORNE REMOTE SENSING MEASUREMENTS IN COASTAL AREAS UTILIZING RELATIVELY SMALL AIRCRAFT. THE SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE AT LEAST ONE MICROWAVE RADIOMETER OPERATING AT 1.4 GHZ (L-BAND). A TRADE-OFF STUDY WILL BE DONE TO DETERMINE THE BEST WAY TO REMOTELY MEASURE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE, WHICH IS NEEDED TO PROVIDE CORRECTIONS ...

  10. MICROWAVE HEATING FOR PROCESSING CERAMIC HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTORS

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I EFFORT HAS SUCCESSFULLY DEMONSTRATED THAT COMBINING SOL-GEL CHEMISTRY WITH MICROWAVE HEATING CAN RESULT IN THE FABRICATION OF A CERAMIC HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR (HTS) IN ABOUT AN HOUR. SOL-GEL PROCESSING RESULTED IN UNIFORM MICRON-SIZED PRECURSOR POWDERS WITH THE DESIRED STOCHIOMETRY. THIS POWDER WAS SUBSEQUENTLY HEATED FOR 70 MINUTES UNDER SPECIFIC CONDITIONS IN A MODIFIED MICROWAVE OVE ...
