  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. Electromagnetic Detection of Tornadoes

    SBC: Airborne Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate objective of this project is to develop an instrument capable of remote detection and location of tornadoes and/or storms containing tornadoes. There are many reports, both scientific and anecdotal, suggesting that tornadoes and tornadic thunderstorms emit anomalous electromagnetic (EM) radiation-both RF and luminous. This radiation is characterized by unusually high rates of EM pulse ...

  3. High Resolution Semiconductor Gamma Ray Detectors for Radionuclide Metrology

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Quantitative, non-invasive X and gamma ray 3-D tomographic assessment of large, irregularly shaped, heterogeneous bodies is essential for efficient progress of environmental waste management. Currently, thousands of sealed containers with low-level radioactive waste are in storage. The material must be identified and quantified as a preliminary step to processing or storing the material. Curren ...

  4. A 3-D Machine Tool Error Modeling System

    SBC: AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.            Topic: N/A

    In response to the increasing demand for better understanding of the manufacturing processes and the machining systems, a new testing standard--ASME B5.54 and a family of new testing instruments have been developed for evaluating the performances of a variety of CNC machining centers. Because of the advancement and versatility of the new instruments, test data are being collected at a much higher ...

  5. A High Temperature Fiber Optic Raman Probe for Corrosion and Process Monitoring

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to monitor the progress of chemical reactions and to detect the presence of corrosive constituents is a challenge in the emerging field of hydrothermal oxidation (HTO) reactors. Likewise, there is also a need to monitor crevice corrosion in commercial steam-generation boilers because corrosion undermines the integrity of steam generators and therefore impacts the operating cost and re ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Development of a Sweating Thermal Conductive Performance Apparatus for

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

    Fire fighter burn injuries continue to be a frequent problem despite significant advances in protective clothing. A reason for this is the buildup of moisture in fire fighting garments as a result of sweating or fire fighting activities. This buildup of moisture increases the heat transfer through the garment and can result in scald burn injuries as the water is quickly heated. Currently, there is ...

  8. Autonomous Agents for Distributed Problem Solving, Planning and Control

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Automation, Incorporated is developing a new innovative approach to concurrent product-process development. The resulting system will also allow integrated development of production planning and scheduling, including external supplier integration. Our approach is based on the paradigm of autonomous agents. The work herein proposed focuses on improvements and extensions to the "Intel ...

  9. A High Sensitivity, High Resolution Imaging Detector for Alpha Particles

    SBC: NewTek            Topic: N/A

    The storage photostimulable phosphor (SPP) technique has been demonstrated to be sensitive to ionization radiation. It is especially suited for detecting alpha particles since the efficiency is practically 100%. In addition to being able to quantify total ionization deposited in a SPP sensor, it also captures the radiation source distribution information in a digital image which can be readily ana ...

  10. Compact Photoconductive-Based Sampling System with Electronic Sampling

    SBC: OptoElectric            Topic: N/A

    Critical issues associated with the design of a rugged, compact "real time" sampling system using photoconductive switches as the signal generator and sample will be investigated. The design concept is based upon an optoelectronic equivalent time sampling principle developed by the Principal Investigator. It involves first the phase locking of the temporal waveform to be measured to the optical pu ...
