  1. CHARACTERIZATION OF HAIL BY ACOUSTIC PROFILE

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM IS ORGANIZED TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ACOUSTIC APPROACH TO AUTONOMOUS DETECTION, IDENTIFICATIONAND MEASUREMENT OF HAIL. THE SENSOR, WHICH IS DESIGNED TO DISCRIMINATE HAIL FROM RAIN AND OTHER FORMS OF PRECIPITATIONIS CONFIGURED IN A SMALL, ALL SOLID STATE UNIT WITH NO MOVING PARTS. LOW COST, LOW POWER CONSUMPTION AND HIGH RELIABILITY ARE ALL IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF ANGULAR ACCELEROMETER

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH EFFORT COMPLETED RECENTLY FOR THE AIR FORCE IDENTIFIED NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR ANGULAR MOTION MEASUREMENT. TWO CONCEPTS WERE FOUND WHICH APPEAR TO OFFER POTENTIAL FOR AN EXCELLENT COMBINATION OF SMALL SIZE, WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE, WIDE BANDWIDTH AND EASE OF FABRICATION AND UTILIZATION. ONE DEVICE, CALLED A FLUID-FILLED BENDER BEAM, USES PIEZOCERAMICELEMENTS TO PRODUCE A SIGNAL PROPORTIONAL TO ...

  3. DIGITAL INFRA-RED EYE COMMAND TRANSDUCER

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH TECHNOLOGY IS ADVANCING AT AN EVER INCREASING PACE,ITS APPLICATION FOR USE BY HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS HAS BEEN SLOW. SEVERELY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS OFTEN REQUIRE SOME TYPE OF "HIGH TECHNOLOGY" MEANS TO ENABLE THEM TO HAVE A DEGREE OF MOBILITY. THE SPECIFIC AIM OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF USING ELECTRO-OPTICS AS A MEANS FOR THE HANDICAPPED TO EFFECT CONTROL OF HIS/HER ...

  4. REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METAL IONS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER USING IMMOBILIZED ALGAE

    SBC: Bio-recovery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PLATING AND ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES ARE REQUIRED BY STATEAND FEDERAL REGULATIONS TO REMOVE TOXIC, HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS BEFORE DISCHARGE. THE SEMICONDUCTOR AND AND PRINTED CIRCUIT INDUSTRY ALONE REMOVED OVER 7.2 TONS OF HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER IN 1983. MUCH OF THE RECOVERED METALS ARE DISCARDED AS SLUDGES, BECAUSE TECHNIQUES FOR RECOVERING AND SEPARATING THE METAL IONS ARE U ...

  7. CONTAMINANT RETURN FLUX EXPERIMENT AND MODELING

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO DEVELOPING A RETURN FLUX EXPERIMENT OF VEHICLE EMITTED GASES, VIA COLLISIONS WITH THEAMBIENT ATMOSPHERE, IS PRESENTED. THE SENSORS AND SOURCES REQUIREMENTS ARE DEVELOPED IN CONJUNCTION WITH NECESSARY MODELING PARAMETERS ASSESSMENT. THE EXPERIMENT PACKAGE IS DESIGNED FOR DEPLOYMENT IN THE SHUTTLE PAYLOAD BAY. THE SENSORS TO BE EVALUATED INCLUDE A PRESSURE GAUGE WITH DIRECT ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. IMPROVED CONTAMINATION MODELING ANALYSIS

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENT MODELS FOR SPACECRAFT UTILIZE A SINGLE COLLISION SCATTERING MODEL TO PREDICT FLUXES OF CONTAMINANTS ON SURFACES AND CONTRIBUTIONS TO OPTICAL LINES-OF-SIGHT. THEY ALSO DO NOT INCLUDE THE RAM PRESSURE BUILDUP OF AMBIENT GASES NEAR SPACECRAFT SURFACES. AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH IS PRESENTED THAT UPDATES THE GAS DYNAMICS MODELING OF CONTAMINANTS AND AMBIENT ATMOSPHERE IN ...
