  1. REAL-TIME COLLECTION, PROCESSING AND DISSEMINATION OF CUSTOMIZED LIGHTNING DATA FROM OVERLAPPING DETECTION NETWORKS

    SBC: R*scan Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNOLOGY OF REAL-TIME LIGHTNING GROUND STROKE MONITORING HAS ADVANCED SIGNIFICANTLY DURING THIS DECADE. THERE IS A CLEAR NEED FOR AN INTEGRATED NATIONAL LIGHTNING NETWORK. IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS HOWEVER, TECHNIQUES MUST BE DEVELOPED TO COLLECT LIGHTNING DATA FROM GEOGRAPHICALLY SEPARATE (AND OFTEN OVERLAPPING) NETWORKS. NETWORK OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS, SUCH AS PEAK DATA RATES, MUST ...

  2. LABORATORY INVESTIGATION OF ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS ON VORTEX WAKES

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED IN A STRATIFIED TOW TANK ARE PROPOSED TO CHARACTERIZE VORTEX WAKES UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ATOMOSPHERIC DISTURBANCE. FLOW RESEARCH HAS DEVELOPED INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR STRATIFYING THE FLUID IN THE TANK, GENERATING A CURRENT SHEAR AND CREATING AMBIENTTURBULENCE WITH GOOD CONTROL. SUCH CAPABILITIES WOULD FACILITATE THE ISOLATION OF THE EFFECTS OF THE DISTURBANCE S ...

  3. A NEW MAGNETO-OPTIC BASED FLAW IMAGING DEVICE FOR UNDERWATERAPPLICATION

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS INTENDEDTO DEMONSTRATE THE BASIC FEASIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING AND OPTIMIZING A NEW MAGNETO-OPTIC 'SANDWICH' DEVICE INTENDED FOR DIRECT VISUALIZATION OF FLAWSIN FERROUS MATERIALS (STEEL) IN A MARINE ENVIRONMENT. THE DEVICE IS BASED IN THE PROPERTY OF SOME MAGNETO-OPTIC GARNETFILMS TO ROTATE THE PLANES OF POLARIZATION OF AN INCIDENT, LINEARLY POLARIZED LIGHT WAVE (FARADAY MAGN ...

  4. DIMENSIONALLY STABILIZING WAFERBOARD BY PRETREATING WOOD WITH POLYMERS BEFORE GLUING

    SBC: Anasys Instruments Corp.            Topic: N/A

    WOOD WAFERBOARD COULD BE UTILIZED FOR SIDING AND OTHER EXTERIOR EXPOSURE APPLICATION IF IT WERE MORE DIMENSIONALLY STABLE WHEN EXPOSED TO CYCLIC HUMIDITY CONDITIONS OR ENVIRONMENTS WHERE THE PRODUCT ABSORBS MOISTURE. ASPEN WAFERBOARD MARKETS COULD BE EXPANDED IF THE THICKNESS SWELLING AND LINEAR EXPANSION UNDER WET CONDITIONS WERE EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN PLYWOOD. A FEASIBILITY STUDY WILL DETERMINE T ...

  5. NOVEL AUTOMATION FOR INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY AND REDUCED COSTS IN HOP PRODUCTION

    SBC: Miller's Machine & Metal Works            Topic: N/A

    HOP PRODUCTION IN LABOR-INTENSIVE, AND HOP PRODUCTIVITY IS SENSITIVE TO THE FLAWS INHERENT IN HAND-TIED LATTICEWORK. NON-OPTIMUM SPACING OF THE MILLIONS OF KNOTS TIED ANNUALLY REDUCES THE PLANT'S EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT, PEST CONTROL AGENTS, AND SPRAYED PLANT FOODS. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT KNOT-S SPACING VARIATIONS REDUCE CROP YIELD BY AS MUCH AS 30%. PROPOSED IS A NEW GENERATION OF AUTOMATION--ONE THAT ...

  7. SIMPLIFYING THE CREATION OF EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS IN SPECIAL EDUCATION WITH THE HELP OF A COMPUTER-BASED VIDEO PRODUCTION SYSTEM

    SBC: Information Technology Design            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of Education
  8. A DYNAMIC FULL PAGE BRAILLE DISPLAY DEVICE.

    SBC: Novcom Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, THERE ARE NO FULL PAGE BRAILLE DISPLAY DEVICES ON THE MARKET. DESPITE THE DESIRABILITY AND OBVIOUS BENEFITS OF SUCH A PRODUCT, TRADITIONAL ENGINEERING APPROACHES HAVE RESULTED IN MANUFACTURING DESIGNS WHICH ARE PROHIBIITIVELY EXPENSIVE TO PRODUCE. AFTER CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF DOZENS OF ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES, NOVCOM'S PROPOSED PHASE I APPROACH OFFERS THE POTENTIAL TO ACHIEVE FULL PAGE ...

  9. NONINVASIVE MONITORING OF KIDNEYS AWAITING TRANSPLANT

    SBC: BARLOW SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG-TERM GOSL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO CONSTRUCT AND EVALUATE A NONINVASIVE DEVICE THAT WILL ASSESS THE FUNCTIONAL INTEGRITY OF HYPOTHERMIC PERFUSED KIDNEYS PRIOR TO TRANSPLANT. THE DEVICE IS BASED ON MEASUREMENTS OF CHANGES IN MITOCHONDRIAL ELECTRON-TRANSPORT PROTEIN-OXIDATION STATES IN THE KIDNEY CORTEX. THESE CHANGES CAN BE MEASURED SPECTROPHOTOMETRICALLY AND WILL BE IMAGED AT THE SURFACE OF ...
