  1. A Configurable Object-Oriented Expert System to Embody Cultural (Awareness) Models for Simulation and Semi-Autonomous Forces

    SBC: AURORA SIMULATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    One of the biggest problems faced by both military and non-military personnel in planning and conducting Operations Other Than War (OOTW) and Law Enforcement (LE) is a lack of cultural awareness. A lack of cultural awareness in OOTW causes misplanning and misinterpretation in the areas of economics, politics, religion, and historical events. The objective of the proposed work is to produce a des ...

  2. Adaptive Network Security Management

    SBC: INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project is dedicated to the development of an adaptive network security management tool that is analogous to implementing and incident/response paring mechanism on top of a universal remote control facility for a variety of network and security tools, network types and operating systems. Our proposed approach to accomplishing this is to integrate and agent architecture with a Case-Based Reas ...

  3. Adaptive Network Security Management

    SBC: MOUNTAIN WAVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Mountain Wave, Inc. proposes to investigate the development of an automated network security management product that would allow personnel within an Information Technology (IT) organization to combine information from heterogeneous sources into an integrated application that captures business processes and automates tasks to "prevent" potential security violations. This product will: be "extensib ...

  4. ADVANCED FORCE CONTROL OF ELECTRIC MANIPULATORS WITH ADAPTIVE CRITIC NETWORKS

    SBC: Jameson Robotics            Topic: N/A

    RESPONSIVE AND SENSITIVE FORCE CONTROL IS ESSENTIAL FOR SOPHISTICATED ROBOT TASKS SUCH AS ASSEMBLY AND FINE MANIPULATION. HOWEVER, THIS KIND OF CONTROL IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR MANIPULATORS DRIVEN BY ELECTRIC MOTORS WITH GEARED TRANSMISSIONS, PRIMARILY DUE TO FRICTION IN THE DRIVE TRAIN. YET THESE TYPES OF MECHANICAL SYSTEMS ARE OFTEN THE MOST PRACTICAL FOR MANY APPLICATIONS. TWO PRIMARY TYPES OF CON ...

  5. Aerodynamics and Flight Control Design for Hovering MUAVs

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Aurora Flight Sciences, with expertise in designing and manufacturing low Reynolds number high-altitude aircraft, proposes to develop new aerodynamics computational tools and flight control solutions to enable the development of 15cm and smaller hovering micro unmanned aerial vehicles (MUAV)s. The objective of this project is to validate the analytical approach, and refine the proposed MUAV desig ...

  6. Aerospace Ceramics and Bone

    SBC: BIOMEDICAL ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BioMedical Enterprises, Inc. (BME) and NASA Ames Research Center (NASA ARC) are developing NASA's aerospace insulation materials for use as an osseous scaffolding to facilitate and support bone wound healing and regeneration. Fibrous reusable composite insulation (FRCI) developed by NASA for use on the space shuttle was modified to promote bone ingrowth and will be evaluated for its ability to fo ...

  7. A High Power Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitor for Hybrid Operations

    SBC: Molten Salt Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Feasibility of double layer capacitors (DLC) utilizing two types of molten salts as electrolytes will be investigated. These double layer capacitors involve two high surface area carbon electrodes, a separator and molten salt electrolytes. They will operate in the range of temperatures from room temperature to 260oC. A high single cell voltage and low cell resistance are anticipated for these doub ...

  8. Airborne Underground Imaging-Radar System Definition

    SBC: System Planning Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A Phase I study is proposed to investigate the feasibility of applying a novel ray-tracing technique for electromagnetic propagation through the dense, refractive media of the earth's upper surface. Application of the technique to modern radar and navigation technology should result in the ability to conduct airborne surveillance of subsurface targets with three dimensional spatial resolution of l ...

  10. A Liquid Fuel Pocket-Sized Thermoelectric Generator for Battery Replacement

    SBC: Trymer Company            Topic: N/A

    The proposed work will explore possibilities for a less than 100 Watt-hour, pocket-sized, Trymer-"Type", thermoelectric generator that converts high energy-density fuels into electrical power for small system usage. Computer models and an actual small-scale working generator will be developed in Phase I and used to study and test the concept. Scavenged heat from an engine-exhaust manifold will a ...
