  1. Advanced Prediction Methods for Augmentative Communication

    SBC: ENKIDU RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices can provide an effective avenue of communication for individuals with communicative disabilities. A core component of many AAC systems is dynamic word prediction, in which a list of probable words is autonomously generated and presented for immediate user selection. Current word prediction systems employ algorithms which do not take full a ...

  2. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  3. A LOW COST PRODUCT DESIGNED TO INTERFACE WITH A PERSONAL COMPUTER, WHICH WILL VOCALIZE WORDS IN THE COMPUTER'S MEMORY.

    SBC: Dynamic Industries Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IS TO INVESTIGATE COST EFFECTIVE (LOW COST/HIGH PERFORMANCE) PRODUCTS AND APPLICATIONS DESIGNED TO INTERFACE WITH A PERSONAL COMPUTER, WHICH WILL VOCALIZE UPON A GIVEN COMMAND WORDS OR PROCESSES WHICH HAVE BEEN STORED IN THE COMPUTER'S MEMORY OR ARE DISPLAYED ON THE COMPUTER MONITOR. THE PRODUCT GOAL IS THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A PRINT ...

  4. AN IMPROVED HEAD SCANNER USING AN ADVANCED TEXT-RECOGNITION ALGORITHM TO IMPROVE PORTABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

    SBC: Intellisys, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP AN IMPROVED READER FOR PRINTED TEXT. THE PRESENT STANDARD IN THIS FIELD IS THE KURZWEIL READING MACHINE. THIS MACHINE HAS SEVERAL DISADVANTAGES, MOST NOTABLY ITS PHYSICAL SIZE AND WEIGHT, ITS COST, AND ITS POOR PERFORMANCE WITH CERTAIN SPECIALIZED TYPES OF FORMATS AND FONTS (E.G., CHEMICAL JOURNALS AND FADED PRINT ON DAMAGED PAPER). IT IS PROPOSED HERE TO ...

  5. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...

  6. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE DOWNHOLE SIGNAL CONDITIONING MODULE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH RANGE (200,000 G) ACCELEROMETERS ARE THE ONLY TRANSDUCERS THAT PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LONG-TERM DATA IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF INTEREST TO THE BLAST AND SHOCK COMMUNITY. THESE GAGES HAVE A VERY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE AND NOISE OFTEN MASKS THE LATE TIME (BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) DATA. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A CLOSE COUPLED LOGARITHMIC GAIN SIGNAL CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT WILL CORRECT THE LATE TIME NOIS ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF AN EULERIAN FINITE ELEMENT CODE

    SBC: Intelligent Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT NUMERICAL COMPUTATIONS TO DESCRIBE NUCLEAR GROUND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS, NUCLEAR CRATER FORMATION, IMPACT DYNAMICS AND PENETRATION MECHANISMS PRESENTLY EMPLOY EULERIAN-BASED FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO MODEL THE MASS FLUX PHENOMENA IN TRACKING MATERIAL MOVEMENT THROUGH THE DISCRETIZED SPACE. THE FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES SUFFER IN COMPARISON TO FINITE ELEMENT CODES, HOWE ...

  9. Multi-language Speech Synthesis for Voice Output Communication Aids using Eloquence

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

    Many speech- and visually-impaired individuals can benefit from text-to-speech systems for unlimited vocabulary speech synthesis. The demands on these systems are especially severe in the case of voice output communication aids (VOCAs) for speech-impaired individuals, since the speech produced substitutes for a speaker's own voice. VOCA quality thus depends not only on intelligibility, but on th ...

  10. NUCLEAR SURVIVABILITY AWARENESS AND TRAINING

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE INTENT OF DOD INSTRUCTION 4245.4, "ACQUISITION OF NUCLEAR SURVIVAL SYSTEMS" IS TO PROVIDE FOR NUCLEAR SURVIVABILITY THROUGHOUT THE LIFE CYCLE OF WEAPON SYSTEMS WHICH ARE REQUIRED TO SURVIVE THE EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS. ONE KEY TO IMPLEMENTING THIS INTENT IS TO INSURE THAT ALL THE PEOPLE INVOLVED ARE FAMILIAR WITH THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES TO IMPLEMENT AND PRESERVE THIS SURVIVABILITY. THIS STUD ...
