  1. MOTION COMPENSATING SCALE

    SBC: General Oceanics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A SCALE FOR WEIGHING LOADS OF UP TO 100 KG. ON MOVING PLATFORMS SUCH AS SHIPS. THE PROBLEM IN THESE SITUATIONS IS THAT ACCELERATION FORCES GENERATED BY THE MOTION OF THE VEHICLE CONSTANTLY VARY THE APPARENT WEIGHT OF ANY OBJECT RESTING ON THE SCALE. THE SOLUTION PROPOSED HERE IS TO USE AN ELECTRONIC SCALE AND COMBINE ITS ELECTRICAL OUTPUT SIGNAL WITH SIGNALS F ...

  3. POLYCULTURE OF MARINE SHRIMP AND OYSTERS IN PONDS

    SBC: Ocean Ventures Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT RESEARCH ON POLYCULTURE OF OYSTERS IN PONDS WITH MARINE SHRIMP. SURVIVAL OF OYSTERS IN STATIC WATER PONDS IS LOW, BUT IT IS ANTICIPATED THE SURVIVAL AND GROWTH WILL BE GOOD IN PONDS WHERE AERATION DEVICESCAUSE WATER TO CIRCULATE WITHIN THE POND. BESIDES THE OBV IOUS ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO BE DERIVED FROM THE SALE OF OYSTERS, BENEFITS TO GENERAL POND PRODUCTIVITY ARE ANTICIP ...

  5. INTERACTIVE EXPERT EDITING SYSTEM

    SBC: Synercom Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXPERT SYSTEM FOR LABELING MAPS RE QUIRES THE PRECISE MODELING OF CARTOGRAPHER'S COMPETENCE WITHIN THE COMPUTER. THIS MODEL CAN BE LARGELY SUBDIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS: GENERALLY ACCEPTED CARTOGRAPHIC RULES, PROJECT SPECIFIC PROCEDURES AND REQUIREMENTS, AND A SYSTEM OF HEURISTICS BASED ON "RULES OF THUMB." RELATIVELY SIMPLE PROGRAMS YIELD ACCEPTABLE RESULTS FOR SIMPLE CASES. H ...

  7. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volt version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resist ...

  10. A Model-Based Solution to Improve the Accessibility and Affordability of Manufacturing System Simulations

    SBC: MBSE Tools, Inc.            Topic: NA

    The vision is to provide decision-makers with effective, fast, and inexpensive analysis tools to answer "What-If" and "What-Should" questions about manufacturing systems. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a modeling methodology with widespread contemporary use in manufacturing, and our strategy is to start with VSM as a deployment beachhead for the eventual deployment of a more generic manufacturing s ...
