  1. Real-Time Image Vector Processor: RTIVP

    SBC: Aspex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Proposed Innovation is real-time hardware for image processing, image understanding and machine vision that will achieve significant performance increases over current systems by implementing a set of operations required to support a specific set of algorithms. These algorithms are intended to process and analyze multiple, parallel partial derivative images or "Jet bundles" which provide a fr ...

  2. A Low Cost Superconducting Frequency Counter Josephson Voltage Standard

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The principal factor preventing wide use of the Josephson primary voltage standard is its cost. By reducing the cost of a HYPRES voltage standard to a level comparable with true cost of secondary standards (including the cost of calibration and low accuracy, etc.), and making it easy to use, we intend to put the Josephson voltage Standard within reach of most secondary standard users. In phase I ...

  3. A Virtual Machining and Inspection System (VMIS)

    SBC: Icamp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the VMIS is to allow manufacturers the luxury of testing and perfecting manufacturing plans long before a single machine tool is turned on and resources are committed. The VMIS will allow the user to select an available machine tool and an available inspection device, specify a proposed inspection plan and a dimensional analysis procedure, and then build and inspect hundreds (or ev ...

  4. High-Temperature Thermal Conductivity Measurements of Ceramic Powders

    SBC: MetSys Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Not Available It is proposed to develop an advanced field apparatus for measuring the thermal conductivity of ceramic powders over the range of temperatures from room temperature to 1500 to 2500 K, depending upon the particular material and its compatibility with other materials. The apparatus will have the capability to carry out fully automated thermal conductivity measurements, by transient or ...

  5. COMBINED OBJECT-ORIENTED AND NEURAL NETWORK APPROACHES FOR SPATIAL DATA MODELS

    SBC: Quba Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS EMPLOYING OBJECT-ORIENTED DATA MODELS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE FEASIBILITY OF REPRESENTING COMPLEX AND ABSTRACT CARTOGRAPHIC FEATURES AS COMPOSITES OF SIMPLER FEATURES. SEPARATE DEVELOPMENTS IN NEURAL-NETWORK TECHNOLOGY HAVE SHOWN PROMISE IN RECOGNIZING OR EXTRACTING SPATIAL FEATURES WITHIN SAMPLE DATA SETS. COMBINING OBJECT-ORIENTED AND NEURAL-NETWORKS APPROACHES MAY LEAD TO NEW ...

  6. A Diode Laser Multigas Analyzer for Advanced Detection of Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences will develop a novel fire detection technology based on optical spectroscopy, using diode lasers and fiber optics. Rapid, quantitative detection of part per million concentrations (or better) of multiple gases, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride, and a fiber optical distribution network permits one laser to be used for at least 800 di ...

  7. Automated Feature Extraction from Scanned Nautical Charts and High-Resolution Images for GIS Applications Using Expert Systems Programmable with Pseudo-English

    SBC: Susquehanna Resources And            Topic: N/A

    Converted from advanced automatic target recognition (ATR) processors, this new feature extraction/GIS system (a) uses raster data as input, and thus eliminates manual digitization; (b) uses expert systems to extract features automatically, and thus eliminates time-consuming and error-prone manual object tracing; and (c) vectorizes the extracted objects and converts them into GIS layers automatica ...

  8. Cold Neutron Microprobe for Material Analysis Using Tapered Capillary Optics

    SBC: X-RAY OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The project will research a new generation of optic for focusing cold neutrons using tapered capillary optics. The success of the program will result in neutron beam probes with unprecedented spatial resolution and detection limits for small sample volumes. The individuals involved are the world leaders in neutron focusing capillary optics, having achieved better than an order-of-magnitude impro ...
