  2. 3-D OBJECT RECOGNITION IN A NEURAL NETWORK THAT PERFORMS SENSOR FUSION

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE FUSION OF SENSOR DATA TO PERFORM 3-D TARGET RECOGNITION FROM 2-D VIEWS IS AN INHERENTLY COMPLEX, COMPUTE-BOUND PROBLEM CHARACTERIZED BY AN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF PIXEL DATA WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED AND INTEGRATED INTO A SINGLE COHERENT DESCRIPTION OF OBJECTS IN AN IMAGE. NEURAL NETWORKS OFFER THE PROMISE OF PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS TO COMPUTER-BOUND PROBLEMS. ATLANTIC HAS BEEN PERFORMING LOW LEVEL F ...

  3. 3-D TARGET MODELING REPRESENTATION AND PERCEPTION

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, CONSIDERABLE RESEARCH IN MACHINE VISION IS BEING DIRECTED TOWARD PROBLEMS IN PERCEPTUAL ORGANIZATION, WHICH INVOLVED HOW OBJECTS SUCH AS JUNCTIONS, LINES, AND REGIONS, EXTRACTED BY LOCAL PROCESSES, ARE COMBINED TO PRODUCE COHERENT PERCEPTIONS OF OBJECTS AND EVENTS. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP PERCEPTUAL ORGANIZATION AS A RECURSIVE ENERGY MINIMIZATION PROCESS USING A HOPFIELD NEURAL NETWORK AP ...

  4. A 3-D NUMERICAL MODEL FOR PREDICTING MESOSCALE WINDFIELDS OVER VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A 3-D NUMERICAL MODEL FOR PREDICTING MESOSCALE WINDFIELDS OVER VANDENBERG AFB IS BEING DEVELOPED. THE MODEL UTILIZES AN OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS TECHNIQUE AND AVAILABLE METEOROLOGICAL DATA TO GENERATE A FIRST GUESS, MASS CONSISTENT WINDFIELD. A HYBRID FINITE ELEMENT METHOD IS THEN USED TO SOLVE THE PRIMITIVE EQUATIONS OF MOTION FOR PREDICTIVE ANALYSIS. A 3-D MESH GENERATOR IS INCLUDED WITH THE COMPUTER ...

  7. A DIAMOND FILM PHOTOCONDUCTIVE POWER SWITCH

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    IN THE PAST DECADE, STUDIES HAVE INDICATED THAT IT IS THEORETICALLY POSSIBLE, IN A SINGLE OPTO-COUPLED SOLID STATE DEVICE, TO SWITCH HIGH VOLTAGES (100 KV/CM LENGTH) AND HIGH CURRENTS (10KA/CM WIDTH) WITH PHENOMENALLY FAST RURN-ON/TURN-OFF TIMES, MORE EFFICIENTLY AND COMPACTLY THAN USING EXISTING THERMIONIC OR PLASMA DEVICES. THE MOST HEAVILY STUDIED PHOTOCONDUCTORS FOR SWITCHING APPLICATIONS HAVE ...

  8. A DISTRIBUTED OPEN ARCHITECTURE FOR SATELLITE GROUND SYSTEMS

    SBC: Integral Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEW CONCEPT IS PRESENTED FOR SATELLITE GROUND SYSTEMS, UTILIZING INDUSTRY STANDARD HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE IN A DISTRIBUTED ENVIRONMENT. A SURVEY OF VENDOR COMPONENTS IS PROPOSED TO ESTABLISH THE POTENTIAL PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PROPOSED ARCHITECTURE. A STRAWMAN DESIGN EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO IDENTIFY THE BENEFITS OF THE ARCHITECTURE FOR VARIOUS CLASSES OF AIR FORCE SATELLITE PROGRAMS. N ...

  9. A DYNAMIC CHARGING SYSTEM FOR THE RAM ACCELERATOR FOR HYPERVELOCITY APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Veritay Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE RAM ACCELERATOR IS A NEW CHEMICAL METHOD FOR ACHIEVING ULTRAHIGH PROJECTILE LAUNCH VELOCITIES. INITIAL DEVELOPMENT WORK PERFORMED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON HAS SUCCESSFULLY ACHIEVED FINAL PROJECTILE VELOCITIES IN EXCESS OF 2.0 KM/S WHEN APPLYING THE ACCELERATOR CONCEPT, BASED ON RAMJET PRINCIPLES, TO A PROJECTILE WITH AN INITIAL VELOCITY OF ABOUT 1.0 KM/S. WORK TO DATE HAS INCORPORATED A ...

  10. A LIQUID CRYSTAL WAVEPLATE TECHNIQUE FOR WAVELENGTH TUNING OF NARROWBAND OPTICAL FILTERS

    SBC: MEADOWLARK OPTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE WAVELENGTH TUNING OF NARROW BANDWIDTH OPTICAL FILTERS USING NEMATIC LIQUID CRYSTAL WAVEPLATES WITH A RETARDANCE THAT IS ELECTRICALLY TUNABLE. THESE TUNABLE LIQUID CRYSTAL WAVEPLATES OR RETARDERS HAVE DISTINCT ADVANTAGES OVER PRESENT TECHNOLOGIES IN THAT THEY PERMIT WAVELENGTH TUNING OF THE FILTER WITH NO MECHANICAL MOTION OR COMPLICATED ELECTROMECHANICAL CONTROL SYSTEMS, ...
