  1. ADVANCED FIRE DETECTION BASED ON COMBINED CONVENTIONAL SMOKE AND CO SENSORS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT SMOKE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES SUFFER FROM SIGNIFICANT FALSE ALARM RATES. THESE PROBLEMS ARE CURRENTLY BEING ADDRESSED BY REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF EXISTING PARTICULATE DETECTORS. IN THIS WORK, THE FEASIBILITY OF A COMBINED PARTICULATE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR WILL BE EVALUATED. THE USE OF MULTIPLE FIRE SIGNATURES HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR REDUCING THE FALSE ALARM PROBLEMS WHILE INCREASING ...

  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. DEVELOPMENT OF A STANDARD CALIBRATION MODEL FOR THE NEAR-INFRARED ANALYSIS OF GASOLINE

    SBC: L T Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY (NIST) HAS UNDERTAKEN AN EFFORT TO PROVIDE SOLID STANDARDS AND ALGORITHMS FOR THE STANDARDIZATION OF NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROPHOTOMETERS. THIS EFFORT, COUPLED WITH RECENT ADVANCES IN MATHEMATICAL ALGORITHMS FOR REGRESSION MODEL TRANSFER, HAS CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF STANDARD CALIBRATION MODELS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH FOCUSES ON TH ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS.

    SBC: NEOCERA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTSC) FILMS HAVE A LARGE POTENTIAL AS DETECTORS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. TO BE USEFUL FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS, IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE HTSC FILM QUALITY SHOULD BE VERY HIGH, BOTH FROM THE VIEW POINTS OF STRUCTURE AND SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES. A MAJOR TASK, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE HIGH SENSITIVITY, FAST RESPONSE, LOW NOISE LEVELS, AND UNIFORM SPECTRAL ...
