  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. EFFICIENT CONSOLIDATION OF CONCRETE USING THE RESONANCE PHENOMENON AND COMBINATION OF INTERNAL AND SURFACE VIBRATIONS

    SBC: Innotech International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCRETE CONSOLIDATION SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE RESONANCE PHENOMENON AND HARMONIC COMBINATION OF INTERNAL AND SURFACE VIBRATIONS FOR EFFICIENTACHIEVEMENT OF UNIFORM AND THOROUGH CONSOLIDATION OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS. AN INTEGRATED ANALYTICAL-EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH IS PLANNED TO ASSESS THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY AND COST COMPETITIVENESS OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH. ANALYTICA ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF AN OPTICAL FIBER DYNAMIC SURFACE GEOMETRY MEASUREMENT ARRAY

    SBC: Robert A Denton Inc            Topic: N/A

    DYNAMIC QUANTIFICATION OF THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL SURFACE GEOMETRY OF ANTHROPOMORPHIC TEST DEVICES CAN IMPROVE CURRENT INJURY ASSESSMENT CAPABILITIES. PRESENTLY, A CHEST BAND CONSISTING OF MANY STRAIN GAUGES MOUNTED IN A MEMBRANE ARRAY IS BEING USED TO MEASURE DEFORMATION OF THE TORSO. WHILE THIS TECHNIQUE PROVIDES REASONABLE DATA, IT INCREASES THE COSTOF DATA ACQUISITION AND THE TIME TO PERFORM THE ...

  10. DESIGN OF AN NGC/SPARC-BASED MACHINE TOOL CONTROLLER

    SBC: Trellis Software & Controls I            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT CONSISTS OF THE DESIGN OF ANEW MACHINE TOOL CONTROLLER THAT WILL MARRY NEXT GENERATION CONTROLLER (NGC) TECHNOLOGY WITH AN ADVANCED RISC HARDWARE PLATFORM. THE RESULTING MACHINE TOOL CONTROLLER'S COMPUTATIONAL POWER SHOULD BE MORE THAN TEN TIMES GREATER THAN THAT OF EXISTING CONTROLLERS, RESULTING IN HIGHER ACCURACY PATHS, BETTER SURFACE FINISH, AND FASTER CYCLE TIMES. THEUSE ...
