  1. MINIATURE ELECTRON BEAM ACCELERATOR INCORPORATING ELECTRON SOURCE AND HIGH GRADIENT ACCELERATION MECHANISM

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

    LIGHT WEIGHT, HIGH ENERGY CHARGED PARTICLE BEAM PRODUCTION IS FEASIBILE WHEN THE ACCELERATION POTENTIAL IS GENERATED FROM AN INDUCTIVE ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM. AN INTENSIVE, COPIOUS X-RAY RADIATION SOURCE IS THEREFORE OBTAINABLE SIMULTANEOUSLY THROUGH THE HIGH-CURRENT ELECTRON BEAM AND METAL TARGET INTERACTION. USE OF A PLASMA OPENING SWITCH IS PROPOSED FOR OPENING THE INDUCTIVE CIRCUIT BECAUSE IT I ...

  2. MICROWAVE NDE SENSOR FOR IN-PROCESS CONTROL IN THE MANUFACTURE OF CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES

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

    THE INTELLIGENT PROCESSING OF MATERIALS IS A NOVEL CONCEPT IN MATERIALS PROCESSING IN WHICH INFORMATION FROM REAL TIME, IN-SITU MICROSTRUCTURAL SENSORS AND PROCESS MODELS ARE COMBINED WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPROACHES TO CONTROL A MATERIALS PROCESS. THE INSITU SENSORS ARE A KEY TO THIS TECHNOLOGY SINCE INFORMATION ABOUT THE "STATE" OF THE MATERIAL MUST BE ASCERTAINED. THEREFORE, THIS PROPOSA ...

  3. AN ASSESSMENT OF MILITARY APPLICATIONS OF THE AQUANAUTICS TECHNOLOGY FOR OXYGEN EXTRACTION

    SBC: Arion Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY UNDERTAKES AN ASSESSMENT OF THE MILITARY MARKET FOR APPLICATIONS OF AN OXYGEN EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY BEING DEVELOPED BY DARPA AT THE AQUANAUTICS CORPORATION. THE POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS IDENTIFIED THROUGH A LITERATURE SEARCH AND TECHNICAL DISCUSSIONS WITH DEVELOPING AGENCIES ARE SUBJECTED TO AN OPERATIONAL, TECHNICAL, AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE WHICH APPLICATIONS HAVE ...

  4. MAGNETIC IMAGING SEEKER

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN OBJECT WILL ELECTRICAL AND/OR MAGNETIC PROPERTIES IN THE PRESENCE OF A MAGNETIC FIELD WILL PRODUCE SOME SIGNATURE OF ITS PRESENCE OR ITS MOTION, WHICH COULD BE DECIPHERED FROM A PRECISE MEASUREMENT OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD. MAGNETIC SENSORS OF EXTREMELY HIGH SENSITIVITY ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. SQUID DEVICES HAVE A SENSITIVITY BETTER THAN 10(-10) GAUSS HZ1/2. INDUCTION COIL MAGNETOMETERS CAN BE DE ...

  5. HIGH TEMPERATURE METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES FOR HYPERSONIC AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES

    SBC: CORDEC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE NATIONAL AERO-SPACE PLANE (NASP) PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP MANNED HYPERSONIC AIRPLANES (MACH 6-25) THAT WILL PROVIDE ORBIT-ON-DEMAND CAPABILITY FROM CONVENTIONAL RUNWAYS, THEREBY REVOLUTIONIZING ACCESS TO SPACE. HOWEVER, SUCCESS WILL DEPEND UPON THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW, LIGHT-WEIGHT STRUCTURAL MATERIALS HAVING UNPRECEDENTED HIGH-TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES. VERY ATTRACTIVE NEAR-TERM CANDIDA ...

  6. RECONFIGURABLE OPTICAL SUPERCLASSIFIER

    SBC: Digital Optics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRESENT PROGRAM HAS THREE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES. THE FIRST IS TO CONSTRUCT A COMPUTER CONTROLLED VERSION OF A CONFIGURABLE OPTICAL SUPERCLASSIFIER THAT IS CAPABLE OF ACCEPTING A SYSTOLIC STREAM OF INPUT DATA. THE NEXT MAJOR OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE BUS STRUCTURE THAT WILL BE REQUIRED TO FEED DATA INTO THE OPTICAL SUPERCLASSIFIER AT RATES THAT ARE CO ...

  7. APPLICATION OF VLSI TO VECTOR ACCUMULATORS AND INTEGRATING TIME TO DIGITAL CONVERTER

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESIGN, SIMULATION, FABRICATION, AND EVALUATION OF A PROTOTYPE VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION (VLSI) DATA ACQUISITION SUBSYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AVAILABLE STATE-OF-THE-ART ONE MICRON CMOS TECHNOLOGY MAY ALLOW INCORPORATION OF MORE THAN 128 CHANNELS OF 24-BIT 300 MHZ COUNTERS INTO A SINGLE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT. A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM OF SIMPLE REPEATED CELLS OF COUNTERS, CONTROL AND I/O BUFFERS HAS BEEN DESIGN ...

  8. NEURAL NETWORKS FOR ADAPTIVE THREAT RESPONSE

    SBC: MARTINGALE RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NEURAL NETWORKS ARE A PROMISING SOLUTION TO SEVERAL PROBLEMS IN THE APPLICATION OF PARALLEL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY FOR ADAPTIVE RECOGNITIONAND RESPONSE TO COMPLEX PATTERNS. UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS NOT KNOWN HOW TO GET A NEURAL NETWORK TO RECOGNIZE PATTERNS INDEPENDENTLY OF THE VALUES OF THEIR FEATURE PARAMETERS WITHOUT INCORPORATING SPECIAL INVARIANT TRANSFORMS FOR EACH SUCH FEATURE. THIS PROPOSAL INT ...

  9. MAGNETIC IMAGE SEEKER UTILIZING NEW MAGNETIC MATERIALS

    SBC: Security Tag Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT A NEW TYPE OF SOFT MAGNETIC MATERIAL CAN BE USED FOR A VERY SENSITIVE AND LOW MAGNETIC FIELD DETECTION DEVICE. TO DETECT THE MILITARY TARGETS, ONE NEEDS A HIGHLY SENSITIVE DEVICE BUT THE EXISTING FLUX-GATE MAGNETOMETERS ARE LIMITED BY THEIR SIGNAL-TONOISE RATIO. WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERIOR MAGNETIC MATERIALS AND IMPROVED ELECTRONICS, SOME OF THE NOISE PROBLEMS IN FLUX-GATE ...

  10. INTELLIGENT DATABASE ACCESS THROUGH A CONCEPT ORIENTED FRONT-END

    SBC: Smart Systems Technology            Topic: N/A

    INFORMATION IS A VALUABLE RESOURCE OF ORGANIZATIONS. AN ADEQUATE AMOUNT OF ACCURATE AND TIMELY INFORMATION IS VITAL TO ANALYSIS, PLANNING, AND DECISION-MAKING. CURRENTLY INFORMATION IS NOT BEING ADEQUATELY MANAGED AS A RESOURCE. SPECIALIZED SKILLS ARE OFTEN NEEDEDTO PROPERLY ACCESS INFORMATION IN DATA BASES. THE USER INTERFACES OF CURRENT DATA MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS REQUIRE THEIR USERS TO KNOW TOO MAN ...
