  1. METAL MONOLITHS FOR CONVERSION OF NATURAL GAS TO LIQUID FUEL

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED METHODS FOR THE CONVERSION OF NATURAL GAS TO LIQUID FUELS ARE NEEDED SO THAT NATURAL GAS ENERGY RESOURCES CAN BE BETTER UTILIZED. IN RECENT RESEARCH BREAKTHROUGHS, CERAMIC MONOLITHS HAVE BEEN USED IN PARTIAL OXIDATION TO CATALYZE VERY FAS, HIGH SELECTIVITY SYNTHESIS OF HIGHER HYDROCARBONS FROM METHANE. USE OF METAL MONOLITHS (SOLID METAL PLATES PERFORATED WITH SMALL, UNIFORM HOLES) IS P ...

  2. A HIGH POWER THICK TARGET DESIGN FOR IRRADIATION BY HIGH INTENSITY CHARGED PARTICLE BEAMS

    SBC: Amparo Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I ADDRESSES A NEW APPROACH FOR THE DESIGN OF HIGH POWER NUCLEAR TARGETS USED FOR PRODUCTION OF RADIOISOTOPES BY HIGH ENERGY CHARGED PARTICLE BEAMS, NOTABLY HIGH ENERGY PROTONS. SUCH TARGETS WILL YIELD LARGER QUANTITIES OF RADIOACTIVE SPECIES THAN PRESENTLY AVAILABLE, EITHER FOR BASIC RESEARCH (E.G., STUDIES USING RADIOACTIVE BEAMS) OR FOR APPLIED PURPOSES (E.G., PRODUCTION OF MEDICAL RADIOI ...

  4. THE PERIPHERAL COMPONENT INTERCONNECTION/SCALABLE COHERENT INTERFACE BRIDGE FOR DATA ACQUISITION AND COMPUTATION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: BI RA SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: N/A

    COALESCING THE FRAGMENTED INFORMATION ASSOCIATED WITH EACH EVENT OF A HIGH-ENERGY PHYSICS DETECTOR AND THEN PROCESSING IT AT THE RATES DEMANDED BY ACCELERATOR SYSTEMS ARE AMONG THE LARGEST CHALLENGES IN THE PHYSICS COMMUNITY. NEW DETECTOR SYSTEMS CONTINUE TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF MEASURED PARAMETERS AND SIMULTANEOUSLY INCREASE THE RESOLUTION OF DETECTOR COMPONENTS SO THAT THE VOLUME OF GENRATED ...

  5. HUMAN PRESENCE DETECTION IN VEHICLES

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN EXISTING SYSTEM HAS DEMONSTRATED, IN QUIET CONDITIONS, VERY RELIABLE DETECTION OF HUMANS HIDDEN IN VEHICLES. SEISMIC VIBRATIONS ARE THE MAJOR, UNAVOIDABLE LIMITATIONS. MEASUREMENT OF THE SEISMIC VIBRATIONS AND COHERENT ANALYSES WILL BE UTILIZED TO COMPUTE AND SUBTRACT THE EFFECT OF THE SEISMIC INTERFERENCE ON THE VEHICLE MOTION. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL IMPROVE THE RELIABILITY, INCREASE THE S ...

  6. RELIABLE INTRUSION DETECTION

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    RELIABLE INTRUSION DETECTION MAY BE ACHIEVED BY COMBINING GENERALIZED POTENTIAL FUNCTION (GPF) NEURAL NET CONSTRUCTION AND MULTIPLE SENSOR DATA FUSION. TRADITIONALLY, RELIABLE INTRUSION DETECTION CAN BE DIFFICULT BECAUSE NOISE LEVELS CHANGE WITH TIME AND LOCATION, AND AN INTRUSION MAY PRODUCE A WIDE RANGE OF SIGNALS OR VARIATIONS OVER THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SENSORS. ACCOMMODATING THESE VARIATION ...

  7. FORECASTING RESERVOIR THICKNESS WITH FRACTALS

    SBC: Nw Resources            Topic: N/A

    THE NATION DESIRES TO EXPAND THE USE OF CLEAN BURNING, COMPETITIVELY PRICED NATURAL GAS. THE INCREASED DEMAND FOR NATURAL GAS HAS PROMPTED NEW DRILLING IN ESTABLISHED GAS FIELDS. THE PROPER PLACEMENT OF THE NEW WELLS IS DEPENDENT ON THE GAS FORMATION PROPERTIES BETWEEN THE EXISTING WELLS. ONE OF THE PROPERTIES IS THE THICKNESS OF THE GAS BEARING ZONE. IT IS GENERALLY ACCEPTED THAT THE FORMATIO ...

  8. A MULTIMEDIA-AUGMENTED SOFTWARE TUTORIAL FOR THE HIGH ACCEPTANCE RECOIL POLARIMETER DEVICE

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF USING MULTIMEDIA-AUGMENTED SOFWEARE TUTORIALS TO SUPPORT TEACHING THE PRINCIPLES OF EXPERIMENTAL NUCLEAR PHYSICS. THE DETECTOR SYSTEM FOR THE PHOTON TAGGING FACILITY AT THE CONTINUOUS ELECTRON BEAM ACCELERATOR FACILITY (CEBAF) IN NEWPORT NEWS, VIRGINIA IS NOW UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT THE NUCLEAR DETECTOR LABORATORY OF THE CENTER FOR NUCLEAR STUDIES OF THE ...

  10. HIGH QUALITY CHEMICALLY VAPOR DEPOSITED NIOBIUM COATINGS FOR SUPERCONDUCTING RADIO FREQUENCY CAVITIES

    SBC: Sumi Tech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONALLY, SUPE2RCONDUCTING CAVITIES FOR LARGE ELECTRON POSITION COLLIDERS ARE FABRICATED FROM HIGH PURITY NIOBIUM (NB) SHEETS USING LATHE SPINNING AND WELDING. THESE CAVITIES SUFFER FROM THE PROBLEM OF THERMOMAGNETIC BREAKDOWN RESULTING FROM THE RELATIVELY POOR THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY OF NB AT LIQUID HELIUM TEMPERATURES. A MORE ELEGANT AND LOW COST SOLUTION TO THE BREAKDOWN PROBLEMS IS THE USE ...
