  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. 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. A RELIABLE LOCOMITIVE CAB ALERTER

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED FOR LOCOMOTIVE CAB ALERTERS THAT CAN BE RETROFITTED TO ALERTER SYSTEMS ALREADY IN SERVICE. THE CONCEPTS INCLUDE A TOUCH SCREEN, WHICH REQUIRES TOUCHING A TARGET TO RESET THE TIMER OR TO RESPOND TO THE ALERTER LIGHT PROMPT. THE INITIAL LOCATION OF THE TARGET ON THE SCREEN IS AUTOMATICALLY SELECTED AT RANDOM. ANOTHER CONCEPT IS THE USE OF A TELEPHONE KEYPAD WITH LCD, WH ...

  6. KNOWLEDGE BASED INFORMATION MODEL INTEGRATION

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

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTEGRATED DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS IS WIDELY RECOGNIZED AS A CRITICAL COMPONENT IN THE EFFORT TO IMPROVE THE COMPETITIVE POSTURE OF AMERICAN INDUSTRIES. A KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF THESE COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS LIES IN THE ROBUSTNESS OF THE INFORMATION INTEGRATION SUPPORTED BY THE SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, THE INDIVIDUAL METHODS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT THE DEFINITION ...

  7. A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN ENVIRONMENT FOR MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING

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

    IT IS A RECOGNIZED PROBLEM THAT CURRENT COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN (CAD) AND COMPUTER AIDED ENGINEERING (CAE) INTERFACES(1) LIMIT PRODUCTIVITY OF HUMAN DRAFTSPERSONS, (2) DENY CONCEPT SUPPORT TO PRODUCT DEFINERS, AND (3) INHIBIT USE OF THESE SYSTEMS FOR DELIVERY OF KNOWLEDGE BASED CONCURRENT ENGINEERING SUPPORT. THESE PROBLEMS LIMIT INITIATIVES TO BOTH PRODUCE BETTER FIRST DESIGNS AND TO REDUCE THE PRO ...

  8. PAIRED ELECTROCHEMICAL SYNTHESIS OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AT PRESENT GLUCOSE IS COMMERCIALLY REDUCED TO SORBITOL BUT THE OPERATING CONDITIONS USED (HIGH TEMPERATURE AND HIGH HYDROGEN GAS PRESSURE) ARE UNDESIRABLE AND DANGEROUS. AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH IS THE PAIRED ELECTROCHEMICAL SYNTHESISOF SORBITOL AND GLUCONIC ACID IN AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS AT AMBIENT TEMPERATURE AND ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE. HOWEVER, A MAJOR DRAWBACK TO THIS APPROACH AT PRESENT IS THE NEED F ...

  9. PICOLITER SOLDER DROPLET DISPENSING FOR ELECTRONICS MANUFACTURING

    SBC: MicroFab Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH PROPOSED IN THIS DOCUMENT ADDRESSES SOLDER APPLICATION TO PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARDS AND OTHER SUBSTRATES WITH A NEW FLEXIBLE APPROACH THAT COULD BE EMPLOYED IN NUMEROUS APPLICATIONS, DIRECTED APPLICATION OF MOLTEN SOLDERDROPLETS, ON THE ORDER OF 30-100MUM, USING INK-JET PRINTING TECHNOLOGY. INK-JET PRINTING SYSTEMS USE THE EJECTION OF TINY DROPS OF INK TO PRODUCE AN IMAGE. THE DEVICES PR ...

  10. IMPROVED HIGH RESOLUTION DISPLAYS COMBINING VERY LARGE SCALEINTEGRATION AND POLYMER DISPERSED LIQUID CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Polytronix Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK REPRESENTS A NEW, INNOVATIVE APPROACH IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED HIGH RESOLUTION DISPLAYS. THE CORE FEATURE OF THIS NEW DISPLAY CENTERS ON CONSTRUCTION OF A REVOLUTIONARY NEW LIGHT VALVE WHICH COMBINES STATE-OF-THE-ART CAPABILITIES IN VLSI AND LIQUID CRYSTAL (LC) TECHNOLOGIES. WITH THIS NEW LIGHT VALVE, IT IS, IN PRINCIPLE, POSSIBLE TO CONSTRUCT DISPLAYS WHICH WOULD HAVE PIXE ...
