  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. PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCES LABORATORY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIFFERENTIATING AMONG THE DENOMINATIONS OF U.S. CURRENCY IS A PROBLEM FOR THE VISUALLY HANDICAPPED. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DEVICES THAT ASSIST THE BLIND IN DETERMINING CURRENCY DENOMINATIONS ARE RELATIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IS A SYSTEMATIC APPLICATION OF PATTERN RECOGNITION AND MICRO-ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY TO DEVELOP A PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER. RECENT AD ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A HARDNESS ASSURANCE THROUGHPUT OPTIMIZED TESTER

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATED CIRCUIT (IC) PRODUCTION LINES OPERATING UNDER MIL-I-38535 HAVE RADIATION HARNESS ASSURANCE (RHA) AND RELIABILITY DESIGNED AND BUILT INTO THEIR TECHNOLOGY. HARDNESS AND RELIABILITY ARE MAINTAINED BY APPLYING STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROLS (SPCS) TO TEST STRUCTURES FABRICATED ALONGSIDE PRODUCT MICROCIRCUITS. MEASUREMENT AND DATA REDUCTION TECHNIQUES PRESENTLY EMPLOYED ARE SLOW AND COSTLY AN ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A SAFETY SYSTEM FOR WHEELCHAIR-BOUND SCHOOL BUS PASSENGERS

    SBC: HARTLEY ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WHEELCHAIR OCCUPANTS IN SCHOOL BUSES ARE EXTREMELY VULNERABLE TO INJURY IN EVEN MODERATE SPEED CRASHES BECAUSE OF THE OPEN ENVIRNOMENT IN WHICH THEY ARE BEING TRANSPORTED TODAY. IT IS COMMON PRACTICE TO TRANSPORT THIS WHEELCHAIR BOUND POPULATION FACING SIDEWAYS IN VANS AND BUSES. THIS SIDE-FACING ORIENTATION EXPOSES THE WHEELCHAIR OCCUPANT TO ADISPROPORTIONATE AMOUNT OF DANGER IN THE EVENT OF FRON ...

  5. PLASMA DRIVEN WATER SHOCK

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH FIDELITY, HIGH ENERGY DENSITY WATER SHOCK SIMULATOR APPEARS FEASIBLE. MISSION RESEARCH CORPORATION (MRC), WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF THE NEW MEXICO ENGINEERING RESEARCH INSTITUTE (NMERI), PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN ELECTRICAL WATER SHOCK SIMULATOR WHERE AN ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE ACROSS A WELL DEFINED ELECTRODE GAP WILL PRODUCE A HOT PLASMA EXPANSION WHICH RESULTS IN A FAST RISE PRESSUR ...

  6. 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 ...

  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. REDUCED-COST CLOSED-CAPTIONING CONSUMER DECODERS FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED

    SBC: Eeg Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CLOSED-CAPTIONING CONSUMER DECODERS (TELE-CAPTION I&II) ARE HIGHLY DEVELOPED UNITS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE IN QUANTITY PRODUCTION. TELE-CAPTION II HAS BEEN MARKETED AT ABOUT $200RETAIL. COST REDUCTION FOR A REPLACEMENT DECODER WILL REQUIRE COST REDUCTIONS IN EACH OF THE SUB-UNIT COMPONENTS SUCH AS TUNER, IF-DEMODULATOR, IN THE DECODER CIRCUITS AND UL APPROVALS AS WELL. THE USE OF A CONSUMER/VIDEO ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
