  1. AUTOMATION OF REQUIREMENTS DEVELOPMENT UTILIZING A DESK TOP COMPUTER

    SBC: Bruce G. Jackson & Assocs.            Topic: N/A

    NASA IS CONTINUALLY DEVELOPING NEW SYSTEMS RANGING FROM COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO TEST FACILITIES TO LARGE SPACECRAFT. EACH SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT IS INITIATED AND CONTROLLED THROUGH THE USE OF REQUIREMENTS SPECIFICATIONS. THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN AUTOMATED TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION SYSTEM FOR A DESK TOP COMPUTER. THE SYSTEM WILL BE PROTOTYPED TO DEVELOP AND TEST CON ...

  4. RELEVANCE OF VISUAL ACCOMMODATION FOR PERFORMANCE IN SPACECRAFT

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: N/A

    "DARK FOCUS" IS DEFINED AS THE RESTING STATE OF VISUAL ACCOMMODATION YET TWO GENERAL MISCONCEPTIONS EXIST. FIRST, THAT THE RESTING POINT IS AT OPTICAL INFINITY, AND SECONDLY,THAT THE EYE ACCOMMODATES ACCURATELY. VISUAL PERFORMANCES REQUIRED IN SPACE ENTAIL CONTINUOUSLY CHANGING VIEWING DISTANCES AND TO ALLOW CREW MEMBERS TO PERFORM ROUTINELY ACCOMMODATION CHANGES NEED TO BE ASSESSED. WHEN A PERSON ...

  5. K BASE: A HYBRID ANALOGICAL/SEMANTIC MODELER FOR COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN,

    SBC: Gms Technology            Topic: N/A

    LACK OF NON-GEOMETRIC KNOWLEDGE IS IDENTIFIED AS A FUNDAMENTAL FLAW OF THE MODELERS UPON WHICH MOST TRADITIONAL THREE-DIMENSIONAL COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) SYSTEMS ARE FOUNDED. A HYBRID REPRESENTATION SCHEME IS OUTLINED WHICH ADDS NON-GEOMETRIC SEMANTICS TO THE TRADITIONAL MODELING METHODS TO FORM A KNOWLEDGE BASE (K-BASE). THE K-BASE SYSTEM OUTLINED BORROWS CONCEPTS FROM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ...

  6. AIRFLOW MONITOR AND STALL WARNING DEVICE

    SBC: Maris Worden Aerospace Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. RAPID DIAGNOSIS OF BACTERIAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES UNDER MICROGRAVITY CONDITIONS

    SBC: Micro Concepts Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A LABORATORY KIT WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR THE RAPID DIAGNOSIS OF BACTERIAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES UNDER MICROGRAVITY CONDITIONS. THE KIT WILL CONSIST OF COAGGLUTINATION AND/OR LATEX AGGLUTINATION REAGENTS AND ENRICHMENT BROTHS FOR THE RAPID, SELECTIVE GROWTH OF SPECIFIC BACTERIAL PATHOGENS. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARD PRODUCING A FUNCTIONAL, EXPERIMENTAL KIT. COAGGLUTINATION AND/OR LATEX ...

  8. A METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING ATMOSPHERES FOR SPACE LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS GENERALLY ACCEPTED THAT HIGHER PLANTS WILL SERVE AS IMPORTANT COMPONENTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONING AND FOOD PRODUCTION SYSTEMS FOR FUTURE SPACE OR PLANETARY SURFACE HABITATS. BECAUSE OF STRUCTURAL CONSIDERATIONS IT IS LIKELY THAT ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION AND PRESSURE WILL BE RADICALLY DIFFERENT. IN DEFINING GROWTH SYSTEMS FOR ALTEREDATMOSPHERES WE MUST UNDERSTAND HOW PLANTS OPERATE IN GEN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. A BIOREACTOR FOR SCRENNING AND PRODUCTION OF HIGH VALUE SECONDARY PLANT METABOLITES

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE BIOCHEMICAL AND SYNTHETIC CAPACITY OF HIGHER PLANTS, AS SHOWN BY THEIR NATURAL CONTENT OF SUBSTANCES, HAS BEEN USED FOR CENTURIES IN SUPPLYING MATERIALS IMPORTANT IN PHARMACOLOGY AND IN FLAVORS AND FRAGRANCES. MANY OF THESE SECONDARY PRODUCTS ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY AND AN ENORMOUS EFFORT HAS TO BE EXTENDED TO GET THEM. ATTEMPTS TO USE CELL CULTURES OF HIGHER PLANTS AS A MEANS OF PRODUCING SECONDA ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. ADVANCED HELIUM NAGNETOMETERS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: POLATOMIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF PHASE I IS DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED OPTICALLY PUMPED HELIUM MAGNETOMETER CONCEPT. THIS INSTRUMENT WILL MEASURE MAGNETIC FIELDS IN THE 1 TO 10-8 GAUSS RANGE WITH ORDER OF MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENTS IN SENSITIVITY AND ABSOLUTE ACCURACY OVER EXISTING MAGNETOMETERS. OPTICALLY PUMPED HELIUM ISOTOPES CAN BE OPTICALLY PUMPED AND USED AS MAGNETOMETERS IN THE FOLLOWING THREE MODES: (1) VECTOR MOD ...
