  7. ACOUSTO-FLUIDIC NOISE GENERATORS FOR AIRCRAFT COMPONENT STRUCTURE TESTING

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH INTENSITY ACOUSTIC NOISE GENERATORS ARE REQUIRED BY NASA TO IRRADIATE ADVANCED AIRCRAFT COMPONENT STRUCTURES ANDMATERIALS AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES AND NOISE LEVELS UP TO 190 DB. PRESENTLY THE NOISE GENERATORS USED BY NASA AT THEIR LANGLEY ACOUSTIC RESEARCH FACILITY OPERATE AT LOW TEMPERATURES (70 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT) AT NOISE LEVELS UP TO 168 DB. CURRENTLY THESE GENERATORS ARE ELECTRO-MECHANIC ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. ELECTROMAGNETIC INSULATORS

    SBC: Magnetic Concepts            Topic: N/A

    THIS INNOVATION IS BASED ON THE MEISSNER EFFECT TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE AND REDUCE THE WEIGHT, SIZE, AND POWER OF SPACECRAFT POWER AND PROPULSION EQUIPMENT BY GREATLY REDUCING MAGNETIC FLUX LEAKAGE IN MOTORS, ACTUATORS AND OTHER ELECTROMAGNETIC DEVICES. IT WILL UTILIZE THE MOST ADVANCED FORM OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTORS- THIN FILMS. THE OBJECTIVES ARE TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PASSIVE FLU ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. A CONCEPT ORIENTED DISTRIBUTED EXPERT SYSTEM FOR SPACECRAFT

    SBC: OMITRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE INNOVATION TO BE DVELOPED IS A PROTOTYPE DISTRIBUTED CONCEPT ORIENTED EXPERT SYSTEM FOR APPLICATION TO SPACECRAFT ANALYSIS MONITORING AND CONTROL. SYSTEM FUNCTIONS WILL BE PERFORMED BY SEMI-AUTONOMOUS EXPERT MODULES WORKING TOGETHER UNDER THE COORDINATION AND CONTROL OF A SUPERVISORYEXPERT . CONCEPT ORIENTED REPRESENTATIONS OF BOTH KNOWLEDGE BASE AND LOGICAL PROCESSES WILL BE EMPLOYED THROUGHO ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. A COMPACT OPTICAL RAIN DROPLET DISTROMETER FOR UNATTENDED FIELD OPERATION

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SATELLITE AND SUPPORTING IN-SITU OBSERVATIONS OF PRECIPITATION PARAMETERS ARE CRITICALLY NEEDED TO SATISFY GLOBAL-SCALE CLIMATE MONITORING REQUIREMENTS. THE MAJOR SOURCE OF DATA WILL BE ESTIMATES OF RAINFALL AMOUNT DERIVED FROM THRESHOLD IR HISTOGRAMS OF GEOSTATIONARY SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS. SINCE THESE ARE SPACE-BASED INDIRECT MEASUREMENTS, IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO ASSESS THE VALIDITY OF THESE EST ...
