  1. CODE-FREE DUAL-FREQUENCY CPS RECEIVER DESIGN

    SBC: S M Systems & Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) SATELLITES TRANSMIT INFORMATION ON TWO FREQUENCIES IN THE L-BAND: L(1) AT 1575.42 MHZ AND L(2) AT 1227.6 MHZ. THESE TWO TRANSMISSIONS ARE PHASE-COHERENT SINCE THEY ARE DERIVED FROM A COMMON OSCILLATOR. BOTH OF THESE FREQUENCIES ARE MODULATED BY A P-CODE CONSISTING OF PSEUDO-RADOM ONE'S AND ZERO'S. THE TRANSMISSION RATE IS 10.23 MHZ AND THE CODE ON BOTH THE TRANS ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTELLIGENT INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN SYSTEM

    SBC: Pls International            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER-BASED INTELLIGENT INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN SYSTEM (IIDS) THAT WILL ACT AS AN ADVISOR TO THE INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNER CONCERNING EDUCATIONAL THEORY AND PRINCIPLES. THE IIDS WILL BE BASED ON CONTEMPORARY COGNITIVE AND INSTRUCTIONAL SCIENCE PRINCIPLES AND WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES WITHIN THE FIELD OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. THE IIDS WILL BE A STRU ...

  3. APPLICATION OF OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY FOR REMOTE TEMPERATURE SENSING

    SBC: CAELUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    REDUCTION OF SATELLITE RADIANCE DATA TO TEMPERATURE PROFILES INVOLVES BOTH DIFFICULT MATHEMATICAL INVERSION ANALYSIS AS WELL AS COMPLICATED DATA PROCESSING. RECENTLY, THE APPLICATION OF THE OPTICAL MEASURE THEORY REPRESENTS A NOVEL APPROACH WHICH PROVIDE A SOLUTION FREE FROM THE NEED OF EXTERNALLY-IMPOSED CONSTRAINTS (KING, 1987). THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A SYSTEMATIC TECHNICAL ...

  4. MATERIALS FOR SUPPRESSION OF SHOCK PROPAGATION

    SBC: Cemcom Research Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CARRIED OUT TO DEMONSTRATE THE UNIQUE VALUE OF CHEMICALLY BONDED CERAMICS (CBC) AS MATERIALS FOR FABRICATION OF MECHANICAL DETERRENTS TO SYMPATHETIC DETONATION OF MUNITIONS. CBC MATERIALS WILL BE FORMULATED AND CHARACTERIZED FOR SHOCK ATTENUATING PROPERTIES AND FRAGMENT CAPTURE OR VELOCITY REDUCTION PROPERTIES. THE FINAL MATERIAL IS LIKELY TO BE A BINARY MATERIAL (TWO DIFFERENT TY ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE G-HARDENED ELECTRO-PHYSIOLOGICAL DATA AND STORAGE DEVICE

    SBC: Gms Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS PROPOSE PHASE I SBIR DESIGN EFFORT, WE WILL DESIGN A PORTABLE, MULTICHANNEL, BATTERY-OPERATED DEVICE THAT WILL DIGITIZE, PROCESS, AND STORE PHYSIOLOGICAL DATA. IT WILL OPERATE IN FLIGHT UNDER HIGH LEVELS OF G STRESS. THE PROGRAMMABLE DEVICE WILL BE CAPABLE OF ACQUIRING DATA AT RATES SUFFICIENT TO RECORD EEG AND ECG WAVEFORMS. THROUGH THE USE OF DATA COMPRESSION TECHNIQUES, IT WILL ALLOW DA ...

  6. REDUCTION OF SPACE SYSTEMS COSTS VIA USE OF EXPERT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Orbitial Systems Ltd            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL AND INNOVATIVE APPLICATION OF AN EXPERT KNOWLEDGE-BASED SYSTEM (KBS) TO SPACE SYSTEMS IS PROPOSED. A KBS DESIGN CONCEPT WILL BE DEVELOPED TO AUTONOMOUSLY MANAGE AND OPERATE SPACE GROUND SUPPORT SYSTEMS. IN PHASE I, THE KBS DESIGN WILL BE EVALUATED AS A TOOL IN INCREASING EFFICIENCY, RELIABILITY, MISSION SUCCESS, AND SAFETY; TO REDUCE COSTS OF MANAGEMENT, DESIFN INTEGRATION AND TEST; AND TO ...

  7. ANTENNA PULSE PATTERN SYNTHESIS IN A COMPLEX MEDIUM

    SBC: Statcon Inc            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO STUDY TWO EFFECTS THAT RESULT FROM THE INTERACTION OF AN ELECTROMAGNETIC BEAM AND A MEDIUM WITH VARIABLE REFRACTIVE PROPERTIES. THE FIRST EFFECT IS THE BEAM SCATTERING THAT OCCURS BECAUSE THE INDEX OF REFRACTION IS A RANDOM FUNCTION OF POSITION AND TIME. THE SECOND EFFECT IS THE NONLINEAR INTERACTION THAT OCCURS WHEN A BEAM OF HIGH INTENSITY CAUSES THE MEDIUM TO LOCALLY CHANGE ITS IN ...

  8. A NEW METHOD FOR LINEAR SEQUENCE GENERATOR CONFIGURATION ESTIMATION

    SBC: Cynetics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED TO IMPROVE RECEPTION OF AND SYNCHRONIZATION OF WIDEBAND SIGNALS OF UNKNOWN PARAMETERS. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THE MATHEMATICAL THEORY OF THE ESTIMATION OF GENERATOR CONFIGURATIONS FROM THEIR OUTPUTS WILL HELP TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL. A PROMISING APPROACH IS TO APPLY SHIFT-AND-ADD AND OTHER PROPERTIES OF LINEAR SEQUENCES TO THE DETERMINATION OF THE GENERATOR CONFIGURATION. A PROPOSE ...

  9. INTEGRATED INFORMATION SIGNAL PROCESSIG

    SBC: Gt-tech Inc            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT MILITARY AND AIRCRAFT RADIOS SPAN NUMEROUS SPECTIAL FUNCTIONS AND NEEDS. MODERN DEVICE TECHNOLOGY (HIGH SPEED DIGITAL FFT'S AND SAW/ACT ANALOG CHIRP FOURIER TRANSFORMERS) HAS OPENED AVENUES FOR SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES IN INTEGRATED SIGNAL PROCESSING CAPABILITIES IN MILITARY RADIOS FOR USE BY THE AIR FORCE. THROUGH USE OF THIS DEVICE TECHNOLOGY, AN LPI/AJ CNI INTEGRATED RADIO CONCEPT, IS PROPO ...

  10. A NEW APPROACH TO E-3 (AWACS) SENSOR DATA FUSION USING MORPHOLOGICAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT THE EVALUATION OF A PROMISING PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY, MORPHOLOGICAL FILTERING, TO THE SENSOR DATA FUSION PROBLEM. THE E-3, AWACS FUSION PROBLEM, IS A DIFFICULT ONE BECAUSE OF THE PROJECTED LARGE NUMBER OF DYNAMIC AIRCRAFT TARGETS (UP TO 4000) AND LARGE NUMER OF SENSORS (UP TO 10) BEING CONSIDERED AS SOURCES TO BE FUSED. FAST MOVING AND MANEUVERING TARGETS OBSERVED ...
