  1. A REAL-TIME 3-D CLOUD SIMULATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR IMPLEMENTING A REALTIME, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD MODEL TO SUPPORT REENTRY VEHICLE TEST OPERATIONS. AN EXISTING RESEARCH CLOUD MODEL WOULD BE INTERFACED TO A MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC MODEL. THE COMBINED MODELING SYSTEM WOULD BE ADAPTED FOR USE AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR). FORECASTS OF DETAILED CLOUD FEATURES SUCH AS WATER CONTENT, RADAR REFLECTI ...

  3. ACOUSTO-OPTIC PROCESSOR FOR SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PROCESSING OF SAR DATA IN REAL TIME REQUIRES HIGH SPEED COMPUTATION DEVICES CURRENTLY BEYOND THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OF CONVENTIONAL METHODS. DESIRED PROCESSORS MUST ALSO BE SMALL, RUGGED AND LOW POWER TO BE DEPLOYED ON AIRCRAFT. OPTICAL TECHNIQUES CAN SATISFY THESE REQUIREMENTS WITH IMAGINATIVE ARCHITECTURES. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH FOR REAL TIME SAR IMAGE RECONSTRUCTION THAT C ...

  4. ADAPTIVE COMMUNICATIONS EXCHANGE SYSTEM (ACES)

    SBC: Lica Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACES IS AN INTEGRATED CONTROL SYSTEM WHICH USES CONVENTIONAL AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES FOR AUTOMATED ASSISTANCE TO THE OPTIMIZATION OF AIR COMBAT COMMUNICATIONS CAPABILITIES. ACES CONTROLLERS ARE ELEMENTS OF EACH COMBAT WEAPONS AND C2 ENVIRONMENTS NODE WHICH CAN SENSE BOTH THE ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENT AND THE QUALITATIVE DEMANDS FOR COMMUNICATIONS AT NODES AND WITHIN NETWORKS. ACES ...

  5. ADAPTIVE GRID TECHNIQUES FOR USE IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT FOCUSES ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF ALL OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS: 1) HOW GOOD ARE THE NUMERICAL ANSWERS OBTAINED IN A COMPUTATION? AND 2) HOW CAN THE BEST POSSIBLE ANSWERS BE OBTAINED FOR A FIXED AND LIMITED COMPUTATIONAL EFFORT, BUDGET, OR COMPUTING CAPABILITY? IN GENERAL TERMS THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS ARE 1) TO DETERMINE RELIABLE A-POSTERIORI ESTIMATES OF ERROR ...

  6. ADAPTIVE NULLING BY ELECTRICAL SURFACE CONTROL OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA

    SBC: COMPUTER SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO FORMING A NULL IN THE SECONDARY PATTERN OF A REFLECTOR ANTENNA IS DEVELOPED BY THIS PROJECT. AN ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLABLE REFLECTIVE SURFACE BEING DEVELOPED ON A NASA SBIR IS THE STARTING POINT FOR THE WORK. THIS PROJECT EXTENDS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SURFACE SO THAT IT IS USEFUL AS A NULL FORMER. THE RESULT IS CONSIDERABLY REDUCED COST OF NULL STEERING ANTENNAS. THE DE ...

  7. ADVANCED RADIOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES UTILIZING A SOLID-STATE ELECTRONIC IMAGER

    SBC: General Imaging Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF MUNITIONS PRESENTS SPECIAL PROBLEMS THAT CANNOT BE SOLVED WITH CONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES. AN ELECTRONIC X-RAY IMAGING SYSTEM WILL BE STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ITS USE IN ADVANCED RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGING TECHNIQUES SUCH AS REMOTE ON-LINE INSPECTION, MULTISPECTRAL RADIOGRAPHY AND BACKSCATTER TOMOGRAPHY.

  8. AIR SPACE MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Engineering & Economics Rsrch            Topic: N/A

    IN RECOGNITION OF THE GROWING SHORTFALL BETWEEN NEEDS AND ABILITIES TO PROVIDE A SAFE AND EFFICIENT AIR NAVIGATION AND AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM, THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION (FAA) IMPLEMENTED ITS LONG RANGE PLANNING NATIONAL AIRSPACE SYSTEM (NAS) PLAN. THE NAS PLAN CONTAINS A COLLECTION OF MODERNIZATION PROJECTS AFFECTING MOST ELEMENTS OF THE NAS AND POTENTIALLY HAVING SIGNIFICANT IMPCTS ...

  9. ANALYSIS OF PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS TO SUPPORT BIOFEEDBACK CONTROL MECHANISMS

    SBC: Transform Index Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE A SOFTWARE SYSTEM THAT MAKES CORRELATIONAL/FACTOR TYPE ANALYSES OF LARGE DATA BASES PRACTICAL ON MICROCOMPUTER-CLASS MACHINES, AND IS ABLE TO COMPUTE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS AT A SPEED THAT MAKES REAL-TIME FEEDBACK CONTROL MECHANISMS POSSIBLE. THE SOFTWARE PROTOTYPE DEVELOPED WILL ACCESS A DATA BASE COMPOSED OF A W ...

  10. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPLIED TO AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS

    SBC: Smart Systems Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP TECHNIQUES FOR COMPUTER SPEECH RECOGNITION USING PARALLEL DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING MODELS. THESE MODELS ARE BASED UPON THEORIES OF HUMAN COGNITIVE PROCESSING AND HAVE SEVERAL USEFUL PROPERTIES. THEY ARE VERY EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT AT INTEGRATING TOGETHER IMPRECISE INFORMATION, AND THUS FOR INTEGRATING MULTIPLE SOURCES OF KNOWLEDGE FOR SPEECH RECOGNITION. THEY ...
