  1. SYNTHESIS AND DEVELOPMENT OF BIODEGRADABLE ANTIFOUL MARINE COATINGS

    SBC: Mead Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    MEAD TECHNOLOGIES, INC. PROPOSES TO SYNTHESIZE FILM FORMING BIODEGRADABLE POLYMERS, SPECIFICALLY A SERIES OF POLY ORGANOPHOSPHAZENES, TO SERVE AS PRIMARY VEHICLES FOR ANTIFOUL MARINE COATINGS. THE COATINGS ARE NON-METAL-CONTAINING FILMS WHICH WILL CONTROLLABLY REACT WITH SEA WATER AT THE DESIRED RATE TO CONTINUOUSLY PROVIDE A NEW SURFACE FOR FURTHER EROSION. THE PRODUCTS OF THE DEGRADATION WILL PR ...

  2. AUTOMATED DESIGN OF AEROSPACE ASSEMBLIES

    SBC: ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP AN AUTOMATED CAD SYSTEM FOR THE STRUCTURAL DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF AEROSPACE MEMBERS. THE SYSTEM WILL ALLOW COMPLEX ASSEMBLIES TO BE SYNTHESIZED FROM STANDARD PARTS LIBRARIES IN A "TINKERTOY" ASSEMBLY FASHION. THE SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO AUTOMATICALLY GENERATE THE FINITE ELEMENT MODEL OF MAJOR STRUCTURAL ASSEMBLIES FROM THE DESIGN PART DEFINITION ...

  3. THE USE OF NEURAL NETWORKS FOR PROGRAMMING AND CONTROL OF SENSORY BASED ROBOTICS

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    TWO MAJOR IMPEDIMENTS TO THE EFFECTIVE USE OF ROBOTICS ARE 1) THE DIFFICULTY IN DEVELOPING ROBUST, ADAPTIVE, GOAL-DIRECTED BEHAVIOR BASED ON SENSORY INTERACTIVE CONTROL AND 2) THE DIFFICULTY IN REPROGRAMMING A ROBOTIC SYSTEM TO CARRY OUT NEW TASKS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS WORK IS TO DEVELOP A HYBRID CONTROL SYSTEM MERGING TRAINABLE NEURAL NETWORK MODULES WITH A WELL-STRUCTURED KNOWLEDGE BASED CONTRO ...

  4. AN ADVANCED HYBRID NEURAL NETWORK FOR ROBOT DYNAMICS MODELING

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    DYNAMICS MODELING IS IMPORTANT FOR THE DESIGN, ANALYSIS, SIMULATION, AND CONTROL OF ROBOTIC AND OTHER COMPUTER CONTROLLED MECHANICAL SYSTEMS. THE FORMULATION OF A MODEL AND THE REQUIREMENTS IMPOSED ON THE COMPUTATIONAL ALGORITHMSDIFFER FROM ONE APPLICATION TO THE OTHER. TODAY, ACCURATE MODELING CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED BY HAVING A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE PHYSICS OF THE SYSTEM IN ADDITION TO PERF ...

  5. SUBMICROMETER SILAYER ELECTRON-BEAM RESIST OF CHLOROMETHYL STYRENE AND AROMATIC SILICON-CONTAINING COPOLYMER

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    AS SWITCHING TIME REQUIREMENTS AND CHIP SIZES DECREASE, SUBMICRON GEOMETRIES WILL BE AN INEVITABLE TREND IN THE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT INDUSTRY IN THE 1990S. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE REQUIRED SMALL GEOMETRIES AND HIGH YIELDS, STRINGENT DEMANDS WILL BE MADE ON RESIST TECHNOLOGY. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE MANY ELECTRON-BEAM RESISTS WHICH HAVE SUBMICRON RESOLUTION, NONE OF THEM TOTALLY MEET ALL PERFORMANCE REQUI ...

  6. SACRIFICIAL POLYIMIDE MATERIALS FOR THE FABRICATION OF MICROELECTROMECHANICAL DEVICES

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Science Foundation
  7. ON-LINE MULTIVARIABLE SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION AND ADAPTIVE CONTROL OF INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    IN THE PROPOSED STUDY, THE CANONICAL VARIATE ANALYSIS (CVA) METHOD OF SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION IS EVALUATED FOR IDENTIFICATION AND ADAPTIVE CONTROL OF INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES.CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ALGORITHMS FOR SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION AND ADAPTIVE CONTROL ARE NOT COMPLETELY RELIABLE FOR AUTOMATIC IMPLEMENTATION ON MICROCOMPUTERS IN REAL TIME. IN THE CVA APPROACH, THE ALGORITHMS ARE COMPUTATIONALLY STABLE A ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A STOPPED-FLOW CYTOMETER

    SBC: Cyto Fluidics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED SBIR PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DESIGN, DEVELOP, AND EVALUATE A STOPPED-FLOW SORTING CYTOMETER. THIS SYSTEM WILLBE BASED ON CYTO FLUIDICS' PATENTED "FLUID TRANSISTOR" WHICH ALLOWS MICROFABRICATION OF FLUID CONTROL VALVES IN SIZES AND DENSITIES AT THE LIMITS OF CURRENT LITHOGRAPHIC METHODS (2 UM). IN THE PROPOSED STUDY, CFI WILL TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY TO CREATE ...

  9. A SIGN LANGUAGE-BASED USER-SYSTEM INTERFACE

    SBC: Dvp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Science Foundation
  10. DYNAMICS OF SHOCKWAVE DISTRUCTION OF KIDNEY STONES

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW, PROPOSED SECTOR SHOCK LITHOTRIPSY (SSL) TECHNIQUE WILL BE COMPARED DIRECTLY WITH AN ELLIPTIC FOCUSED SHOCK (FS) DEVICE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MOST WIDELY USED CLINICAL SHOCK WAVE SOURCE. THE PRESSURE FIELD PATTERNS AND PERFORMANCE AGAINST SIMULATED AND HUMAN KIDNEY STONES IN WATER WILL BE DETERMINED. THE SSL TECHNIQUE EMPLOYS AN ESTABLISHED, U.S. TECHNOLOGY, WHOSE MEDICAL APPLICATION POTENTI ...
