  1. A SPATIO-TEMPORAL BACKPROPAGATION NEURAL NETWORK APPROACH TOFISHERY STOCK PREDICTION

    SBC: LNK CORP., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DESIGN AND BUILD A SYSTEM FOR FISHERY AND MARINE MAMMAL STOCK PREDICTION USING NONLINEAR SPATIO-TEMPORAL NEURAL NETWORK THEORY. WHILE THE CENTRAL ENGINE OF THE SYSTEM MAKES USE OFNONLINEAR NEURAL NETWORKS FOR PREDICTION, SEVERAL PERIPHERAL MODULES INCORPORATED IN THE DESIGN ASSIST THE USER IN EMPLOYING THE PREDICTOR FOR VARIOUS APPLICATIONS. IN PARTICUL ...

  2. FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WATER COLLECTION SYSTEM FOR FLOATING NET PEN AQUACULTURE

    SBC: Minnesota Aquafarms Inc            Topic: N/A

    A SMALL SCALE WASTE COLLECTION SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED AND EVALUATED TO DETERMINE POTENTIAL EFFECTIVENESS OF FOUR DIFFERENT DEGREES OF CONTAINMENT OF NET PANS; 5, 50, 60, AND100 PERCENTS. EFFECTIVENESS OF THE COLLECTION UNIT WILL BE EVALUATED BY MONITORING EFFICIENCY OF PHOSPHOROUS, SUSPENDED SOLIDS AND DOB LOAD REMOVAL AT EACH OF THE FOUR CONFIGURATIONS. OTHER OPERATIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLE ...

  3. LARGE-FORMAT REAL-TIME X-RAY IMAGERS

    SBC: NANOPTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE A NOVEL TECHNOLOGY FOR A REAL-TIME X-RAY IMAGER. THE PROPOSED TECHNOLOGY CAN BE ADAPTED TO SPECIFIC MEDICAL OR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS WHICH MAY HAVE DIFFERENT REQUIREDCHARACTERISTICS. THE SPATIAL RESOLUTION CAN BE IN THE RANGEOF 5 TO 20 LINE PAIRS PER MM. A SINGLE UNIT HAS AN ACTIVE IMAGING AREA OF 10 CM X 10 CM. BECAUSE THERE IS ESSENTIALLYNO DEAD SPACE AROUND THE EDGE OF A UNIT, SEVE ...

  5. ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES TO INTEGRATED DAMAGE CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR USCG VESSELS

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

    INTEGRATED DAMAGE CONTROL SYSTEMS (IDCS) HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO IMPROVE MONITORING, DECISION-MAKING, AND RESPONSE TO SHIPBOARD EMERGENCIES. ULTIMATELY, IMPLIMENTATION OF THESE SYSTEMS MAY REDUCE MANPOWER. THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF PHASE I WILL BE TO PROVIDE THE USCG WITH SEVERAL DESIGN CONCEPTS FOR INSTALLING IDCS ON USCG SHIPS. THIS WILL INCLUDE ALTERNATIVES FOR HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE AS A FUNCTIO ...

  6. RETROFITTABLE TRAIN ALERTER DEVICE REQUIRING COGNITIVE RESPONSE

    SBC: Pulse Electronics Inc            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO TRAIN ALERTER DEVICES SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE "DEAD-MAN PEDAL." THERE CONTINUES TO BE ROOM FOR ADDITIONAL ENHANCEMENTS, PARTICULARLY IN LIGHT OF TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES IN THE FIELD OF ERGONOMICS AND HUMAN FACTORS. ONE AREA OF POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENT LIES IN THE RESPONSE THAT THE DEVICE REQUIRES FROM THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER. DEVICES CURRENTLY IN USE HAVE B ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORT FOR MINI-CARS

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE DOWNSIZING OF AUTOMOBILES ON U.S. HIGHWAYS, MINI-CARS HAVE BECOME A MAJOR PART OF THE AUTO POPULATION. THE LIGHT WEIGHT AND HIGH CRUSH RATE OF THESE VEHICLES CAN CAUSEHIGH VELOCITY CHANGE LEVELS WHEN IMPACTING MOST EXISTING BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORTS. THIS INCREASES THE PROBABILI-TY OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTSOF MINI-CARS WHEN IMPACTING LUMI- NAIRE SUPPORTS. CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED WH ...

  10. IN-PLACE AIR PERMEAMETER FOR OPEN-GRADED DRAINAGE LAYERS

    SBC: Geo-systems Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RAPID FIELD TEST IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE PERMEABILITY OF OPEN-GRADED ROAD BASES AND OTHER DRAINAGE LAYERS. THE SAME TEST ALSO SHOULD BE ADAPTABLE TO EVALUATE PERMEABILITIES OF OTHER EXPOSED PAVEMENT LAYERS INCLUDING THOSE COMPOSED OF BITUMINOUS OR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETES, AS AN INDEX TO PERMEATION AND POSSIBLY TO DETERIORATION. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE PERMEABILITY BE EVALUATED THROUGH USE ...
