  1. AER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW CONCEPT IN PROVIDING WEATHER \FORECASTING FOR INDUSTRY, MADE POSSIBLE BY THE DECREASING COSTS OF POWERFUL COMPUTERS.

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW CONCEPT IN PROVIDING WEATHER \FORECASTING FOR INDUSTRY, MADE POSSIBLE BY THE DECREASING COSTS OF POWERFUL COMPUTERS. IMPROVED SHORT-RANGE FORECASTS WOULD BE OBTAINED BY RUNNING A MODEL ON THE USER'S COMPUTER. THE MODEL WOULD ACCESS THE FORECASTS OF THE NATIONAL METEROLOGICAL CENTER AND MODIFY THEM THROUGH A DETAILED SIMULATION OF THE PHYSICS OF ATMOSPHERIC PROCESSES,T ...

  2. MOORED INSTRUMENT HIGH SPEED ACOUSTIC TELEMETRY SYSTEM

    SBC: Datasonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A REQUIREMENT FOR A RELIABLE, SECURE METHOD FOR RETRIEVAL OF DATA FROM MOORED INSTRUMENTATION ARRAYS. THESEARRAYS, WHICH CONTAIN CURRENT METERS, TIDE GAUGES, TEMPERATURE SENSORS, AND OTHER OCEANOGRAPHIC INSTRUMENTS, ACQUIRE AND STORE DATA OVER A PERIOD OF WEEKS OR MONTHS AND THEN ARE RETRIEVED, THE RESTORED DATA RECOVERED, AND THE INSTRUMENTS REDEPLOYED. RETRIEVAL AND DEPLOYMENT IS AN EXP ...

  4. NUCLEASE A IN BACILLUS SUBTILIS INTERACTIVE EXPERT EDITING SUBSYSTEM LOW-COST HRPT DIRECT READOUT STATION

    SBC: Genex Corpon            Topic: N/A

    BOVINE PANCREATIC RIBONUCLEASE A (RNASE A) IS A MODEL SYSTEMFOR ESTABLISHING RULES THAT GOVERN PROTEIN STABILITY AND FOLDING. BY LEARNING AND APPLYING THESE RULES, MORE ROBUST ENZYMES OF VARIOUS TYPES COULD BE DESIGNED FOR COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS. SYNTHESIS, CLONING AND EXPRESSION IN BACILLUSSUBTILIS OF A GENE ENCODING RNASE A WILL ALLOW FOR THE ECONOMICAL PRODUCTION OF VARIANT PROTEINS WHICH ARE ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF NEW UV/VUV RADIOMETRIC STANDARDS

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE ONLY A FEW RADIOMETRIC STANDARDS AVAILABLE IN THE 115-350 NM WAVELENGTH REGION. AMONG THEM ARE THE ARGON MINI-ARC AND THE DEUTERIUM LAMP. BOTH LAMPS PROVIDE STABLE SOURCES OF UV/VUV RADIATION, AND CAN BE CALIBRATED BOTH IN RADIANCE AND IRRADIANCE. HOWEVER, EACH HAS DISADVANTAGES THAT LIMIT ITS USEFULNESS AS A BENCHTOP OR SPACE-QUALIFIED STANDARD. ONE POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVE SECONDARY RADIOM ...

  9. "TWO-WAVELENGTH LASER FOR SURGERY"

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF LASERS AS A SURGICAL MODALITY HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED IN RECENT YEARS. LASERS OF VARIOUS WAVELENGTHS ARE SUITED FOR DIFFERENT SPECIFIC SURGICAL FUNCTIONS. CO2 (10.6 ) RADIATION HAS SMALL PENETRATION DEPTHS IN TISSUES. THIS LEADS TO HIGH SURFACE TEMPERATURES WHICH ARE DESIRABLE FOR TISSUE INCISION THROUGH EVAPORATION. ND:YAG LASERS (1.06 ) PROVIDE VOLUMETRIC TISSUE HEATING WHICH IS EFFECTIV ...

  10. THE SCATTERING OF X-RAYS CAN BE USED TO IMAGE THE DENSITY OFANATOMICAL STRUCTURES UP TO SEVERAL CENTIMETERS DEEP IN THE HUMAN BODY.

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE SCATTERING OF X-RAYS CAN BE USED TO IMAGE THE DENSITY OFANATOMICAL STRUCTURES UP TO SEVERAL CENTIMETERS DEEP IN THE HUMAN BODY. THIS RESEARCH DESCRIBES A TECHNIQUE OF USING COMPTOM SCATTERED X-RAYS IN AN IPSILATERAL (BACKSCATTER) GEOMETRY TO OBTAIN THREE-DIMENSIONAL DENSITY INFORMATION FORMAXILLODENTAL IMAGING. THE TECHNIQUE IS CALLED COMPTON SCATTER TOMOGRAPHY (CST). CURRENTLY, IN THIS ANATOM ...
