  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 ...

  5. NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF CERAMIC USING SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    CERAMIC MATERIALS ARE UNDER CONSIDERATION FOR STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS IN ADVANCED HEAT ENGINES FOR SEVERAL REASONS. THE PRIMARY MOTIVATION IS THEIR HIGH STRENGTH UNDER SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING OPERATING TEMPERATURES. THE USE OF THESE HIGH TEMPERATURE MATERIALS WILL PERMIT BETTER FUEL EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE COOLING SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS. DUE TO THEIR ATOMIC STRUCTURE, CERAMICS INTRINSICALLY EXHIBIT LOW ...

  8. KENETIC CHAIN

    SBC: BAND, LAVIS & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT INVOLVES THE CHARACTERIZATION, EVALUATION AND MODIFICATION OF A CHAIN -SHOCK ABSORBER UTILIZED COMMERCIALLY. THESE SHOCK ABSORBERS CAN BE ASSEMBLED AS "LINKS" TO FORM A LENGTH OF "CHAIN" WITH THE DESIRED SHOCK ABSORBING CHARACTERISTICS. THIS CHAIN CAN EITHER BE INCORPORATED BETWEEN THE SHIP-S ANCHORING CHAIN AND A BOUY, BETWEEN THE BOUY AND ITS ANCHOR, OR BETWEEN THE SHIP- ...

  9. SPECTRAL ANALYSIS OF STRAY LIGHT

    SBC: Breault Research Organization, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE PHASE I DEVELOPMENT WE WILL INVESTIGATE AND STUDY APPROACHES FOR THE EVALUATION OF THE STRAY LIGHT CHARACTERISTICS OF A ROTATING FREE GYRO TYPE IR SEEKER IN THE FREQUENCY DOMAIN. SINCE THIS IS A FUNDAMENTALLY NEW AREA OF STRAY LIGHT ANALYSIS, WE WILL BEGIN BY DEVELOPING INSIGHTS INTO THE UTILITY OF THIS TECHNIQUE BY EXAMINING THESIGNATURES OF VARIOUS INTERNAL (THERMAL EMISSION) AND EXTE ...

  10. HIGH RESOLUTION ACOUSTO-OPTIC DEVICES FOR OPTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    ACOUSTO-OPTIC (A-O) BRAGG CELLS PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN SIGNAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS DUE TO THEIR REAL TIME PROCESSING CAPABILITIES, AS WELL AS THEIR CONVERSION CAPABILITIES OF A FUNCTION OF TIME TO A FUNCTION OF SPACE AND TIME. IN THIS PROGRAM, BRIMROSE WILL INVESTIGATE, DESIGN AND FABRICATE STATE-OF-THE-ART ACOUSTO-OPTIC DEVICES MADE OUT OF TEO2 MATERIAL AND DESIGN TO INCREASE THEIR BANDWIDTH (UP ...
