  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM ATTITUDE CONTROL

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

    A PROTOTYPE GUIDANCE AND CONTROL SYSTEM SENSOR FOR DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS IS PROPOSED. THIS GUIDANCE SUBSYSTEM SENSOR WILL USE THE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) SATELLITE CONSTELLATION FOR BOTH POSITION AND ATTITUDE DETERMINATION OF THE DEW. THIS GPS ATTITUDE DETERMINATION SYSTEM CAN BE CAN BE APPLIED FOR POINTING AND ATTITUDE CONTROL OF MANY TYPES OF DEWS, INCLUDING GROUND, AIR, AND SPACE BASE ...

  6. LASER ALLOYING OF PLASMA-DEPOSITED COATINGS FOR PROTECTION AGAINST ATOMIC OXYGEN

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    ATOMIC OXYGEN-INDUCED DEGRADATION OF MATERIALS IN LOW EARTH ORBIT IS A PROBLEM OF GREAT CONCERN IN THE DEPLOYMENT OF SATELLITES, REFLECTORS AND MIRROR AND ANTENNA STRUCTURES. IN PARTICULAR, THE DEGRADATION OF THIN CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE MATERIALS BY ATOMIC OXYGEN RESTRICTS THE OPERATIONAL LIFE AND BATTLE-READINESS OF THIS OTHERWISE STRUCTURALLY ADVANTAGEOUS MATERIAL. ALTHOUGH SEVERAL METHODS ARE ...

  7. MEASURING MAGNETIC FIELD STRUCTURE BEHIND A PROJECTILE

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    DMS (DILUTED MAGNETIC SEMICONDUCTOR) CRYSTAL WILL MEASURE MAGNETIC FIELD STRENGTHS OF A HYPERVELOCITY GUN (HVG), WITH UNIQUELY HIGH DIRECTIVITY AND SPATIAL RESOLUTION, UNDER A HARSH ELECTRO-MAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) CONDITION. KNOWLEDGE OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD STRUCTURE BEHIND AND AHEAD OF A PROJECTILE IS ESSENTIAL FOR DESIGNING AN EFFICIENT HVG OF SDI INTEREST, ALTHOUGH EMI MAKES SUCH A MEASUREME ...

  8. HEALTH MONITORING AND CONTROL SYSTEM RECONFIGURATION FOR LARGE SPACE TRUSSES USING OPTICAL FIBER SENSORS

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE NEXT GENERATION SPACECRAFT WILL BE MADE OF NEW STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS WITH LITTLE DAMPING SO THAT ACTIVE VIBRATION SUPPRESSION IS ESSENTIAL. THESE SPACECRAFT, FUNCTIONING IN A REMOTE HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT WHERE IMMEDIATE REPAIR IS PRECLUDED, MAY SUSTAIN DAMAGE FROM EXTERNAL DISTURBANCES AND AGING. TO ADDRESS THE OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF FUTURE SPACECRAFT, THIS PROGRAM IS DEVELOPING AN ...

  10. CRYOGENICALLY COOLED CONTROLLED SWITCH FOR SPACE POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID STATE SWITCH FOR OPERATION AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL PROVIDE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER CONDITIONING IN THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING FIELD OF LOW TEMPERATURE ELECTRONICS. SINCE EXISTING CONTROLLED SWITCHES ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUITABLE FOR CRYOGENIC OPERATION, ONLY A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH CAN DEVELOP STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF LOW LOSS AND RELIABLE OPERATION IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE B ...
