  3. AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SHELL PADS TO ESTABLISH OYSTER SEED BEDS AND COMMERCIAL REEFS

    SBC: Continental Shelf Assocs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL, ANHYDRITE CALCIUM SULFATE, FOR USE AS CULTCH IN CONSTRUCTING SEED BEDS AND ARTIFICIAL OYSTER REEFS IS HEREIN PROPOSED. GIVEN THE FACTS THAT OYSTER PRODUCTION IN THE UNITED STATES HAS DECLINED GREATLY SINCE 1908 AND THAT NATURAL OYSTERSHELL IS SCARCE AND EXPENSIVE, MOTIVATION FOR USE OF THIS ALTERNATE MATERIAL AS CULTCH INCLUDES ITS CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION, LOW COST ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYSIS TOOL FOR HIGH AND LOW VELOCITY ICE INDENTATION PROBLEMS

    SBC: Simtex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TWO MAJOR OBSTACLES CONFRONTED PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO ANALYZE FIELD ICE BEHAVIOR; NAMELY: THE LACK OF PROPER CONSTITUTIVE LAWS TO MODEL REALISTIC ICE BEHAVIOR, PARTICULARLY AT HIGH STRAIN-RATES, AND THE DIFFICULTY IN INCORPORATING LARGE ICE DEFORMATIONS IN THE ANALYSIS. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A STUDY WHICH WILL IMPLEMENT AN ICE CONSTITUTIVE MODEL SUBROUTINE TO WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH A LAGRANGE EXP ...

  6. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  7. GLOBAL CONVERGENCE PROCESSING OF STEROSCOPIC IMAGES

    SBC: Coprocessor Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE A THREE DIMENSIONAL VIDEO DISPLAY SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM WILL NOT REQUIRE VIEWING APPARATUS (SPECIAL GLASSES, ETC.) AND IS COMPATIBLE WITH EXISTING TV SYSTEMS. IT WILL USE A BASIC STEREOSCOPIC 3D TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED SEVERAL YEARS AGO, BUT THE NEW SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE UNIQUE IMAGE PROCESSING THAT CORRECTS DEFECTS OTHERWISE INHERENT IN ALL SYSTEMS THAT DISPLAY STEREOSCOPI ...

  9. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...
