Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. FEASIBILITY OF SPOKEN LETTER RECOGNITION ON A VLSI NEUROCOMPUTER

    SBC: Adaptive Solutions Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF SPEECH RECOGNITION ON A VLSI NEUROCOMPUTER. THE SPEECH RECOGNITIONSYSTEM WILL PERFORM SPEAKER-INDEPENDENT RECOGNTION OF SPOKENENGLISH LETTERS. THE CURRENT IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SYSTEM, NOW RUNNING IN THE CONTEXT OF A DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE APPLICATION ON A SUN4 WORKSTATION, CLASSIFIES ISOLATED LETTERS OF THE ENGLISH ALPHABET AT 96% ACCURACY-THE BEST REPOR ...

  5. SIMULTANEOUS ENGINEERING AUTOMATION

    SBC: Aquidneck Management Associate            Topic: N/A

    A NEW GENERATION OF ENGINEERING AND MANUFACTURING AUTOMATION DESIGNTOOLS ARE NOW EMERGING AS A RESULT OF THE PIONEERING WORK THAT HAS BEEN DONE IN OBJECTORIENTED PROGRAMMING TECHNOLOGY. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL PROCEDURAL LANGUAGE APPROACHES, THE OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING APPROACH ALLOWS DATA STRUCTURES AND PROCEDURES TO BE DEFINED FOR GENERIC CLASSES OF OBJECTS. SYSTEM PERFORMANCE, RNA, AND COST DAT ...

  6. A NEW CLASS OF PHOTO-RESPONSIVE POLYMERS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL TYPES OF PHOTO-RESPONSIVE POLYMERS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED OVER THE PAST 10 YEARS. HOWEVER, CURRENT LIMITATIONS (SUCH AS IRREVERSIBILITY, INADEQUATE PHYSICAL CHANGES, AND HIGH EXPENSE) HAVE PREVENTED THEIR WIDESPREAD USE. BEND RESEARCH PROPOSES TO PURSUE A NEW CLASS OF PHOTO-RESPONSIVE POLYMERS FOR USE IN A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS (E.G., OPTICAL MEMORY DEVICES, ABSORBANTS, SWITCHES IN ROBOTIC ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL ORGANIC/INORGANIC HYBRID MATERIALS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED FOR NEW MATERIALS WITH IMPROVED PROPERTIES IS APPARENT FROM THE SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF TIME AND MONEY DEVOTED TO THIS RESEARCH. HOWEVER, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE USING CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES TO PRODUCE MATERIALS WITH MANY COMBINATIONS OF PROPERTIES THAT WOULD HAVE HIGH COMMERCIAL VALUE. HOWEVER, ORGANIC/INORGANIC HYBRID (OIH) MATERIALS OFFER A UNIQUE ALTERNATIVE TO CONVENTIONAL MULTIPHASE MATERIALS. ...

  8. ENZYME REACTORS FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF PEPTIDE INHIBITORS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HYPERTENSION IS ONE OF THE MAJOR HEALTH CHALLENGES FACING RESEARCHERS IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL FIELD. SYNTHETIC PEPTIDESTHAT ARE INHIBITORS OF RENIN AND ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME HAVE PROVED VERY SUCCESSFUL IN TREATING HYPERTENSION AND HAVE SHOWN PROMISE IN TREATING OTHER DISEASES. WHILE THE DEMAND IS HIGH FOR SYNTHETIC PEPTIDES TO TREAT HYPERTENSION AND OTHER DISORDERS, AVAILABLE PEPTIDE-SYNTHES ...

  9. MEMBRANE-BASED MICROBIAL-OXIDATION PROCESS FOR PHEROMONE PRODUCTION

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED METHODS ARE NEEDED TO LIMIT THE COSTLY DAMAGE CAUSED BY FOREST BEETLES THROUGHOUT THE U.S. AND THE WORLD. INSECT PHEROMONES--CHEMICALS THAT CAN BE USED TO CONTROL INSECT BEHAVIOR--ARE AN ATTRACTIVE PEST-CONTROL METHOD BECAUSE OF THEIR SAFETY, SPECIFICITY, AND EFFECTIVENESS. THE USE OF FOREST-BEETLE PHEROMONES HAS BEEN LIMITED, HOWEVER, BY THE LACK OF A COMMERCIALLY PRACTICAL, COST-EFFECTI ...

  10. REVERSO-OSMOSIS MEMBRANES FOR REMOVAL OF LOW-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT ORGANICS FROM WATER

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    REVERSE OSMOSIS IS A MEMBRANE PROCESS THAT HAS THE POTENTIALTO IMPROVE SIGNIFICANTLY WASTE-WATER RECYCLING TECHNOLOGY FOR USE IN SPACE, AND TO ELIMINATE OR REDUCE THE NEED FOR THE EXPENDABLE POLISHING BEDS REQUIRED BY EXISTING WASTE-TREATMENT SUBSYSTEMS. HOWEVER, TO REALIZE THIS PROMISE, REVERSE-OSMOSIS (RO) MEMBRANES MUST BE DEVELOPED THAT CAN REMOVE LOW-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT ORGANICS FROM WASTE WATER ...
