  1. PASSIVE WATER REMOVAL FOR COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEMS

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCEPT FOR PASSIVE REMOVAL OF WATER FROM COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY LINES IS PROPOSED. RELYING ON SURFACE TENSION EFFECTS TO REMOVE THE WATER, THIS CONCEPT IS FEASIBLE FROM A PRACTICAL STANDPOINT BECAUSE OF AN INVENTIVE MANUFACTURING APPROACH DEVELOPED BY ALABAMA CRYOGENIC ENGINEERING. THE PHASE I EFFORT INCLUDES THEORETICAL MODELING AND FEASIBILITY TESTING OF CRITICAL ASPECTS OF THE CONCEPT. RESULT ...

  2. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...

  3. INTEGRATION OF EXPERT SYSTEM FOR PROCESS PLANNING AND FEATURE BASED DESIGNS

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

    ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE/EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNIQUES HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE ABILITY TO ADDRESS COMPLEX REASONING TASKS REQUIRED FOR PROCESS PLANNING. FEATURE-BASED DESIGN THEORY AND PRELIMINARY EFFORTS HAVE SHOWN THE POTENTIAL OF PROVIDING A FUNDAMENTAL MODEL FOR CAPTURE AND MANIPULATION OF DESIGN KNOWLEDGE. HOWEVER, THE TWO TECHNOLOGIES HAVE NOT BEEN SUFFICIENTLY INTEGRATED TO ALLOW DESIGN FEATURES TO ...

  4. DIAGNOSTIC INSTRUMENTATION FOR BEHIND-ARMOR DEBRIS USING HIGH-SPEED LASER PHOTODETECTION

    SBC: DYNETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DYNETICS PROPOSES A NOVEL HIGH-SPEED PHOTONIC DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR CHARACTERIZING THE BEHIND-ARMOR EFFECTS OF CHEMICAL-ENERGY WARHEADS AND ARMOR-DEFEAT PHENOMENA. BY SUBDIVIDING THE BEHIND-ARMOR VOLUME INTO REGIONS THAT ARE CONTINUOUSLY MONITORED WITH LASER BEAMS AND PHOTODETECTORS, PASSING PARTICLES ARE DETECTED SINCE THEY MODULATE THE PHOTODETECTOR OUTPUTS. POST-PROCESSING OF THE DIGITIZED, MULTI ...

  5. STRUCTURES

    SBC: Invocon Consultants            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO MONITOR VIBRATION IN HIGHWAY BRIDGES. IT IS DESIRABLE TO MONITOR MANY POINTS ON THE BRIDGE. THE CURRENT PROBLEM IS THAT SENSORS MUST BE WIRED TO A CENTRAL LOCATION. WIRE IS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL AND TO MOVE. THE SOLUTION IS TO COLLECT SENSOR DATA BY RADIO. A SYSTEM EXISTS THAT ELIMINATES WIRE. IT GATHERS SENSOR DATA TO A CENTRAL LOCATION BY RADIO. THE SYSTEM'S UNIQUE FEATURE IS THA ...

  6. VIRTUAL FACTORIES AS A MECHANISM FOR CONTINUOUS BUSINESS RE-ENGINEERING

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE A SIMULATION/FACTORY CONTROL CAPABILITY TO (1) SIMULATE PRODUCTS, PROCESSES, AND FACTORY CONFIGURATIONS AT MULTIPLE LEVELS OF ABSTRACTION, (2) PROVIDE FINE GRAINED ANALYSIS OF PRODUCT AND PROCESS DESIGNS, AND (3) PROVIDE A MODEL DRIVEN FACTORY CONTROL ARCHITECTURE SO THAT THE MODELS EXECUTED IN THE SIMULATION STUDIES CAN BE DIRECTLY US ...

  7. APPLICATIONS OF FULLERENES: CATALYST SUPPORTS FOR AQUEOUS FUEL CELLS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FUEL CELLS OPERATING IN AQUEOUS ELETROLYTES (BELOW 200¿C, DEPENDING ON THE CHOSEN ELECTROLYTE TECHNOLOGY) NORMALLY OPERATE ON HYDROGEN FUEL AND OXYGEN (OR AIR) AS THE OXIDANT. HIGH-PERFORMANCE FUEL CELL ELECTRODES REQUIRE HIGH CATALYST SURFACE AREAS, GOOD ELECTRONIC CONDUCTIVITIES AND BROAD REACTION ZONES, DEFINED BY THE CONTACT AREA BETWEEN THE CATALYST, THE GAS PHASE REACTANT AND THE ELECTROLYT ...
