  1. "HIGH PERFORMANCE SIGNAL PROCESSING"

    SBC: The Athena Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING (DSP) INDUSTRY SUPPLIES ESSENTIAL TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGY TO A HOST OF DEFENSE AND CIVILIAN END-USERS. DSP PRODUCTS ARE FOUND IN MANY FIELDS INCLUDING COMMUNICATIONS, AUDIO, VIDEO, AUTOMATION, GEOPHYSICAL, MEDICAL, AND RADAR/SONAR APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, MANY CRITICALLY IMPORTANT PROBLEMS CANNOT BE SERVEDBY THIS INDUSTRY DUE TO CURRENT COMPUTATIONAL LIMITATIONS OFDSP HARD ...

  2. LARGE SCALE SYSTEM RELIABILITY EVALUATION

    SBC: Carlsen & Fink Associates            Topic: N/A

    WHILE THE NATION'S ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING CONTINUES TO BECOME INCREASINGLY DEPENDENT ON THE NATION'S ELECTRIC ENERGY SYSTEMS, CONTINUED RELIABLE PERFORMANCE OF THOSE SYSTEMS MUST BE MAINTAINED DESPITE INCREASING FINANCIAL AND OPERATING CONSTRAINTS. THE TASK OF MAINTAINING ACCEPTABLE LEVELS OF RELIABILITY IS MADE INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT BY THE LACK OF ANALYTICAL TOOLS FOR RELIABILITY EVALUAT ...

  3. POWER SYSTEM STATIC SECURITY CONTROL

    SBC: Carlsen & Fink Associates            Topic: N/A

    SECURITY CONTROL OF POWER SYSTEMS INVOLVES THE MONITORING OFTHE SYSTEM STATE, THE EVALUATION OF SYSTEM VULNERABILITY TO POTENTIAL DISTURBANCES, AND CONTROL ACTION CALCULATED TO CONSTRAIN THAT VULNERABILITY TO AN ACCEPTABLE LOW VALUE. BECAUSE OF THE PERVASIVE UNCERTAINTIES IN THIS PROBLEM, SECURITY CONTROL IN PRACTICE HAS BEEN RESTRICTED TO EMPIRICAL, SOMETIMES INTUITIVE PROCEDURES, SUPPORTED AT BE ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A CATALYTIC INFRARED COOKING GAS BURNER

    SBC: Catalytic Energy Corp            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL GAS-FIRED COOKING RANGES HAVE LOW OVERALL THERMAL COOKING EFFICIENCY, WASTING APPROXIMATELY HALF OF THE COMBUSTION ENERGY. FURTHER, COOKING IMPLEMENTS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A MAJOR SOURCE OF THE INDOOR AIR POLLUTANTS NO2 AND CO. THE PURPOSE OF THE RESEARCH PROPOSEDHEREIN IS TO CONSTRUCT A WORKING PROTOTYPE OF A CATALYTIC INFRARED GAS BURNER SUITABLE FOR COMMERCIAL AND DOMESTIC COOKI ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A PERSONALIST APPROACH TO ESTIMATING POPULATIONS OF INSTITUTIONS APPLIED TO MARKET RESEARCH

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    WHEN A BUSINESSMAN OR OTHER DECISION MAKER NEEDS AN ESTIMATE (SAY, OF SALES OF A NEW INDUSTRIAL PRODUCT), AND HEHAS ACCESS TO RICH AND VARIED INFORMATION, BUT LIMITED RESOURCES HE NORMALLY MAKES HEAVY USE OF JUDGEMENT IN HIS ENQUIRY. PERSONALIST (BAYESIAN) STATISTICS PROVIDES A LOGICAL FRAMEWORK TO GUIDE THE USE OF SUCH JUDGMENT, IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANY SAMPLE OR OTHER DATA. IN PARTICULAR, IT PROD ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  8. AN INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK FOR KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION AND ACQUISITION

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    MANY DIVERSE METHODS OF KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION HAVE BEEN USED BY AI RESEARCHERS. NONE APPEAR POWERFUL ENOUGH TO CAPTURE THE DIVERSE TYPES OF KNOWLEDGE THAT PEOPLE POSSESS NOR DO THEY APPEAR FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THE ACQUISITION OF KNOWLEDGE. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION SCHEME THAT INTEGRATES THREE MAJOR FRAMEWORKS: SCHEMAS/FRAMES, PRODUCTION RULES AND MENTAL ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  9. FLAW DETECTION, SIZING AND LOCATION BY DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING SPECTRUM TECHNIQUE

    SBC: Florida Nuclear Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HEREIN INVOLVES ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH TO CAREFULLY EVALUATE AND FURTHER DEVELOP THE DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING TECHNIQUE FOR ACCURATE NON-INVASIVE DETERMINATION OF VOIDS, CRACKS, FLAWS IN MATERIALS AND THE DEFECTS SIZING AND LOCATION CAPABILITIES OF THIS METHOD. THIS NEW DEVICE, WHICH WE HAVE TERMED "DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING SPECTRUM PROBE (DGSSP)," IS B ...

  10. WAVE EQUATION IMAGING OF OFFSET VSP DATA

    SBC: Geoquest International Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PROPOSED METHOD FOR GENERATING AN IMAGE IN DEPTH OF A GEOLOGIC CROSS-SECTION FROM OFFSET VERTICAL SEISMIC PROFILE (VSP) DATA WILL BE TESTED AND EVALUATED. THE PROPOSED METHOD USES WAVE EQUATION MIGRATION TECHNOLOGY COUPLED WITH A NEW IMAGING METHOD TO GENERATE THE IMAGE. THIS ELIMINATESTHE NEED FOR RAY TRACING AND ALLOWS FOR MORE COMPLEX VELOCITY MODELS THAN DO PRESENT METHODS. THE METHOD WILL B ...
