  1. A COMPUTERIZED ASSESSMENT OF TEAM LEADERSHIP SKILLS

    SBC: Humrro International Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCHERS ARE DEVELOPING AND VALIDATING A MEASURE OF TEAM LEADERSHIP ABILITY. OVER THE PAST DECADE, MANY ORGANIZATIONS HAVE IMPLEMENTED INNOVATIVE WORK PRACTICES IN RESPONSE TO GROWING COMPETITION AND OTHER MODERN CHALLENGES IN THE MARKETPLACE. AMONG THESE INNOVATIVE PRACTICES IS THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SELF-DIRECTED WORK TEAMS. TO REAP THE BENEFITS OF THIS PRACTICE, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ORGANI ...

  2. ACOUSTIC METHODS FOR STRESS MEASUREMENTS IN STRUCTURES

    SBC: REINHART & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    PREDICTION OF CATASTROPHIC AND COSTLY FAILURES IN STRUCTURALCOMPONENTS HAS BEEN HAMPERED BY THE INABILITY TO MEASURE STRESS LEVELS IN CRITICAL COMPONENTS WITH ACCURACY. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES THE STEPS NEEDED TO DEVELOP A STRESS MEASUREMENT SYSTEM THAT RELIES ON ULTRASONIC (ACOUSTOELASTIC) WAVE MEASUREMENTS. THE RECENT ADVANCEMENTSMADE IN THE USE OF CRITICALLY REFRACTED LONGITUDINAL WAVES (CRLW), ...

  3. A FREQUENCY MODULATED UV SOURCE FOR MEASURING TROPOSPHERIC HYDROXYL RADICAL

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE HYDROXYL RADICAL (OH) PLAYS A KEY ROLE IN THE PHOTOCHEMISTRY OF BOTH THE TROPOSPHERE AND THE STRATOSPHERE. IT IS THE PRIMARY OXIDIZING AGENT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REMOVAL OF MOST TRACE GASES INCLUDING CO AND CH4. SINCE THE OH RADICAL DETERMINES THE LIFETIMES AND, THUS, THE CONCENTRATIONS OF MANY CHEMICAL SPECIES, ACCURATE DETERMINATION OF OH CONCENTRATION IS PIVOTAL IN UNDERSTANDING ATMOSPHERI ...

  4. AIRBORNE SCIENCE DATA RELAY USING ORBCOMM

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  5. AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY ELECTROPOLISHING MACHINE FOR TITANIUM

    SBC: Kemp Development Corp            Topic: N/A

    MOST ELECTROPOLISHING TREATMENTS FOR STAINLESS STEELS EMPLOY MULTIPLE OPEN MILDLY ACIDIC VESSELS. CONCERNS REGARDING FUMES AND CARRYOVER OF MORE AGGRESSIVE ACIDS MAKE COMMERCIAL TREATMENT FOR TITANIUM UNAVAILABLE. AN AUTOMATED ENCLOSED SINGLE TANK ELECTROPOLISHING MACHINE PROVIDES AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY METHOD FOR TITANIUM. WORKPIECES ARE PLACED IN A DRY VACUUM-TIGHT CHAMBER AND NECESSARY ...

  6. A NEW DIFFUSING-VORTEX NUMERICAL SCHEME

    SBC: Intelligent Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A DIFFUSING-VORTEX METHOD, FOR SOLVING THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL INCOMPRESS NAVIER-STOKES EQUATION, WILL BE EXTENDED AND APPLIED TO THE EXTERNAL INCOMPRESSIBLE VISCOUS FLOW OVER A GENERALLY SMOOTH BLUNT BODY. THE NUMERICAL ADVANTAGES OVER OTHER LAGRANGIAN VORTEX METHODS WILL BE FURTHER DEMONSTRATEDBY REDUCING TOTAL CPU TIME AND BY AVOIDING CUT-OFF PROCEDURES. THE NEW APPROACH WHICH IS AN APPROXIMATE EXP ...

  7. A NON-VACUUM FIELD EMISSION DEVICE

    SBC: SI Diamond Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH-SPEED FIELD EMISSION TRIODE DEVICE WHICH DOES NOT REQUIRE HIGH VACUUM FOR OPERATION IS DESCRIBED. THIS IS ENABLED BY COATING A MICRO-TIP CATHODE WITH RECENTLY INVENTED VERY LOW WORK FUNCTION DIAMOND THIN FILM, SUCH THAT THE ELECTRIC FIELD TO EXTRACT ELECTRONS FROM THE CATHODE IS LESS THAN 5 VOLTS PER MICROMETER. HENCE A VOLTAGE OF ONLY 5 VOLTS NEED BE APPLIED BETWEEN THE CATHODE AND THE G ...

  8. AN YTTRIUM ALUMINUM PEROVSKITE BASED GAMMA-RAY DOSIMETER

    SBC: W Peter Trower Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  9. A SOFTWARE IMPLEMENTED FAULT-TOLERANCE (SIFT) LAYER FOR RELIABLE COMPUTING ON MASSIVELY PARALLEL COMPUTERS

    SBC: Reliable Computer Technology            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A COMMON MISCONCEPTION THAT MASSIVELY PARALLEL COMPUTERS ARE NATURALLY RELIABLE, FAULT-TOLERANT, AND RECONFIGURABLE BECAUSE OF THEIR ABUNDANCE OF RESOURCES. IN FACT, THE ONLY ATTRIBUTE GAINED BY MULTIPLE PROCESSORS IS A HIGHER TOTAL FAILURE RATE. HOWEVER, DESIGNERS ARE LARGELY IGNORING THIS ISSUE TO CONCENTRATE ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF SYSTEMS WITH PEAK PERFORMANCE BEYOND THE TERAFLOP BOU ...

  10. A STUDY OF THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING GENERALLY APPLICABLE METHODS AND TECHNIQUES FOR CONVERSION OF EXISTING STATE CULTURAL RESOURCE DATABASES TO GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Ebert And Associates            Topic: N/A

    A VAST BODY OF INFORMATION ON THE NATION'S CULTURAL RESOURCES, COLLECTED LARGELY WITHIN THE LAST TWENTY YEARS BY LEGAL MANDATE, EXISTS IN STATE AND FEDERAL ARCHIVES. MUCH OF THIS INFORMATION IS IN DIGITAL FORM, BUT EVEN MORE RESIDES ON PAPER FORMS AND MAPS. GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (GIS) TECHNOLOGY, WHICH HAS ONLY BECOME WIDELY AVAILABLE IN A PRACTICAL SENSE WITHIN THE LAST FEW YEARS, OFFE ...
