  1. TOPOLOGICAL DATA MODELS FOR OBJECT-ORIENTED EXPERT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Dba Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS EMPLOYING KNOWLEDGE BASED EXPERT SYSTEMSWORKING WITH OBJECT-ORIENTED DATA MODELS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE FEASIBILITY OF AUTOMATING THE CARTOGRAPHIC MAPPING AND CHART PRODUCTION CYCLE. AREAS WHERE CHART PRODUCTION EXPERTSYSTEMS ARE MOST BENEFICIAL ARE: AUTOMATED PLACEMENT OF FEATURE NAMES, MAP GENERALIZATION AT CHANGE OF SCALE, DETECTION AND RESOLUTION OF SYMBOL PLACEMENT CONFLICT ...

  3. EVALUATE HEAT FLUX MICROSSENSOR FOR AUTOMATIC FIRE DETECTION

    SBC: Vatell Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE FIRE DETECTION AND CONTROL CAPABILITIES OF A NOVEL SENSOR WILL BE EVALUATED IN A COMBINED EXPERIMENTAL AND ANALYTICAL PROGRAM. THE SENSOR, CALLED A HEAT FLUX MICROSENSOR (HFM), WAS DEVELOPED JOINTLY BY VIRGINIA TECH AND VATELL CORPORATION. THIS SENSOR'S CHARACTERISTICS MAKE IT AN OUTSTANDING CANDIDATE FOR USE IN FIRE DETECTION. ABLE TO DETECT LEVELS OF HEAT FLUX AS LOW AS 10 WATTS/M(2) WITH A ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTELLIGENT CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM

    SBC: Acumen Engineering And            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL OUTLINES A CONCEPT FOR A DEVICE WHICH WILL DETECT THE INCORRECT INSTALLATION OF A CHILD SAFETY SEAT IN AN AUTOMOBILE AND ADVISE THE USER OF THE CONDITION. IN THE PROPOSED PROGRAM, ACUMEN ENGINEERING/ANALYSIS, INC. WILL DEVELOP THE DEVICE TOA PROTOTYPE STAGE TO DEMONSTRATE ITS TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY. IN ADDITION, COST ESTIMATES FOR A MASS-PRODUCED VERSION OF THE INTELLIGENT CHILD RESTRA ...

  5. IMPROVEMENT IN THE GRAPHITE REFERENCE CELL FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FOR CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEMS TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN MITIGATING CORROSION WITHOUT CAUSING HYDROGEN EMBRITTLEMENT OF PRESTRESSING STEEL, THE AMOUNT OF POLARIZATION OF THE EMBEDDED STEEL MUST BE VERY ACCURATELY CONTROLLED. PRESENTLY AVAILABLE EMBEDDED REFERENCE ELECTRODES DO NOT HAVE THE LONG TERM STABILITY OR RELIABILITY RE@UIRED TO MONITOR AND CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF POLARIZATION WITH THE ACCURACY RE ...

  6. A LUGGAGE SIMULATION TOOL FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Directed Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTER MODELING OF MULTIDETECTOR, THREE-DIMENSIONAL IMAGING EXPLOSIVES DETECTION DEVICES IS A CRITICAL ASPECT OF THE DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION OF THESE SYSTEMS. FOR ANY SYSTEM MODEL, THE TARGET LUGGAGE IS A COMMON DENOMINATOR. A LUGGAGE SIMULATION TOOL WHICH COULD GENERATE DATA FILES FOR INPUT INTO ANY SUCH CODE MUST HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO GENERATE REALISTIC OBJECTS OF MANY DIFFERENT TYPES, SHAPES ...

  7. NEW FAST HEAVY SCINTILLATORS FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION: A FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: W Peter Trower Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 Department of Transportation
  8. NEW GRAPHICAL COMMUNICATION TACTILE SENSORS TO ASSIST INDIVIDUALS HAVING VISUAL DISABILITIES

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    ONE OF THE MAJOR OBSTACLES TO EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT OF INDIVIDUALS WITH SEVERE VISUAL DISABILITIES IS THE INABILITY TO ACCESS VISUAL IMAGES FOUND IN THE EDUCATIONAL SETTING OR REQUIRED FOR SATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE IN THE WORKPLACE. EFFORTS TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO VISUAL IMAGES HAVE INCLUDED TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS SUCH AS COMPUTER-BASED BRAILLE PRINTERS, TACTILE BRAILLE DISPLAYS AND RAISED-RELI ...

  9. NETWORK ARCHITECTURE SPEECH SYSTEM (NASS)

    SBC: Automated Functions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NETWORK ARCHITECTURE SPEECH SYSTEM (NASS) UTILIZES A NEW APPROACH IN PROVIDING EXCELLENT ACCESS FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE TO OFF THE SHELF PROGRAMS (E.G., WORDPERFECT, LOTUS 1-2-3) THAT RUN ON THE IBM PC, AT, PS/2, AND COMPATIBLES. IT DRAMATICALLY CHANGES THE CURRENT SENSORY ADAPTIVE AID ARCHITECTURE BY TRANSFERRING THE "SCREEN READER" SOFTWARE FROM THE PC TO A NEW TYPE OF "SMART" OUTPUT DE ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF THE ADULT RATING OF ORAL ENGLISH (AROE) FOR LEP ADULTS

    SBC: Development Associates            Topic: N/A

    VERY FEW ORAL ENGLISH PROFICIENCY ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENTS EXIST THAT ARE APPROPRIATE FOR LIMITED-ENGLISH-PROFICIENT (LEP) ADULTS IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT TRAINING PROGRAMS. THE AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTS REQUIRE LEVELS OF STUDENT AND STAFF TIME AND OTHER PROGRAM RESOURCES THAT ARE DIFFICULT FOR PROGRAMS TO PROVIDE AND OFTEN ARE NOT APPROPRIATE FOR ASSESSMENT OF EMPLOYMENT-RELATED ORAL PROF ...
