  1. UNIQUE IMMUNOASSAYS FOR DETECTION OF CIGUATOXIN AND RELATED MARINE TOXINS USING MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES

    SBC: Moana Bioproducts Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A UNIQUE AND HIGHLY SIMPLIFIED IMMUNOLOGICAL PROCEDURE USING A MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY TO CIGUATOXIN IN A TWO-STEP PROCEDURE. THE MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY(MAB) IS PREPARED BY THE MOUSE HYBRIDOMA TECHNIQUE, USING HIGHLY PURIFIED CIGUATOXIN CONJUGATED TO PROTEIN CARRIERS. THE MAB-CTX THUS OBTAINED IS CONJUGATED TO COLLOIDAL GOLD (< 0.45 UM DIAMETER) OR COLORED LATEX PARTICLES. THIS WI ...

  2. SHALLOW WATER SONAR SYSTEM

    SBC: Ocean Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPECIAL MILITARY NARROW BEAM ACOUSTIC PROJECTORS AND TRANSMISSION TECHNIQUES CAN BE EASILY ADAPTED FOR COMMERCIAL USE TO ENABLE FISHERMEN OR RESEARCHERS TO DETECT,LOCATE, AND QUANTIFY BIOLOGICAL TARGETS WITH VERY HIGH ACCURACY IN SHALLOW WATER. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A METHOD FOR PRODUCING VERY NARROW ACOUSTIC BEAMS WITH VIRTUALLY NO SIDELOBES FROM A SMALL APERTURE PROJECTOR ARRAY. ALSO ...

  3. ASSESSMENT OF MECHANICAL SHOCK SENSOR CAPABILITIES

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

    THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE, IF ANY, DEVELOPMENT IN RECENT YEARS IN THE AREA OF MECHANICAL SHOCK (MS) SENSORS, ESPECIALLY SENSORS WITH HIGH FREQUENCY AND HIGH-G RESPONSE. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THROUGH THE USE OF LITERATURE SOURCES AN ASSESSMENT BE MADE OF THE STATE-OF-THE-ART IN MS SENSORS AND OF THE IMPROVABILITY OF THE MOST ADVANCED DEVICES TO EXTEND THEIR FREQUENCY AND DYNAMIC RANGE. IT IS ALSO PROPOSE ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGHER-ORDER META MODEL FOR SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EACH PHASE OF THE DEVELOPMENT LIFE CYCLE IS IMPORTANT AND THE PRODUCTS OF EACH ARE ESSENTIAL FOR A SUCCESSFUL SYSTEM. HOWEVER, DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUES AND TOOLS ARE PHASE-SPECIFIC AND DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH ONE ANOTHER. WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE CASE BECAUSE DEVELOPERS HAVE NOT YET DISCOVERED A UNIFYING CONCEPTUAL MODEL OF INFORMATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT CONSTRUCTS APPLICABLE TO THE WHOLE LIFE CY ...

  5. IMPROVED AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION METHODS FOR ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO EXAMINE A VARIETY OF AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION TECHNIQUES ESPECIALLY THOSE CONCERNING RECENT WORK ON PULSE SHAPE AND ELECTRONIC SIGNAL PROCESSING TO OBTAIN IMPROVED TARGET DETECTION PERFORMANCE FOR AN ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZE IN AN AEROSOL ENVIRONMENT. BASED ON THIS STUDY A SYSTEM CONCEPT WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DEMONSTRATE THE IMPROVED AEROSOL PERFORMANCE THAT IS OBTAINABLE AND THAT RELIAB ...

  6. CONTROL OF HELICOPTER ROTORBLADE AERODYNAMICS

    SBC: AEDAR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL IS CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CONCEPT FOR THE CONTROL OF THE AERODYNAMICS OF HELICOPTER ROTOR BLADES. SUCH A CONTROL DEVICE WILL MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO MECHANIZE THE HELICOPTER ROTOR AIR FOIL MUCH IN THE SAME WAY THAT THE WINGS OF FIXED WING AIRCRAFT ARE MECHANIZED TO ACHIEVE HIGH LIFT, STALL-FREE PERFORMANCE AT LOW SPEEDS. EXISTING METHODS FOR ACTIVE CONTROL OF HELICOPTER R ...

  7. PROCESS CONTROL FOR PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY SOLID FILLED EXPLOSIVES

    SBC: APPLIED ORDNANCE TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    COMPOSITE EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS LIKE PLASTIC BONDED EXPLOSIVES (PBX'S) ARE CONSIDERABLY LESS SENSITIVE TO HEAT, SHOCK AND IMPACT THAN CONVENTIONAL TNT-BASED EXPLOSIVES. THE NAVY USES THESE IN MANY LOW VOLUME MUNITIONS. THEIR INTRODUCTIONN INTO HIGH USE MUNITIONS WILL PROVIDE SUBSTANTIAL SHIP/PLATFORM SURVIVABILITY IMPROVEMENTS. THESE MATERIALS ARE COMPLEX AND COSTLY TO MIX AND LOAD USING EXISTING HI ...

  9. 3-D OBJECT RECOGNITION IN A NEURAL NETWORK THAT PERFORMS SENSOR FUSION

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

    THE FUSION OF SENSOR DATA TO PERFORM 3-D TARGET RECOGNITION FROM 2-D VIEWS IS AN INHERENTLY COMPLEX, COMPUTE-BOUND PROBLEM CHARACTERIZED BY AN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF PIXEL DATA WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED AND INTEGRATED INTO A SINGLE COHERENT DESCRIPTION OF OBJECTS IN AN IMAGE. NEURAL NETWORKS OFFER THE PROMISE OF PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS TO COMPUTER-BOUND PROBLEMS. ATLANTIC HAS BEEN PERFORMING LOW LEVEL F ...

  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 ...
