    SBIR Phase I 1994 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  2. PREATTENTIVE VISION BASED AUTOMATIC RECOGNITION OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    FIELD TRACKING OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS FROM FOREST FIRES OR VOLCANOES REQUIRES DETERMINATION OF THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT SHOWN IN VISIBLE IMAGES SCANNED FROM VARIOUS ANGLES ABOUT THE CLOUDS. AT THE PRESENT TIME, TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT IS DETERMINED BY AN OPERATOR WHO MANUALLY LOCATES POINTS ON THE CLOUD PERIMETER-A PROCEDURE WHICH HAS BEEN FOUND TO BE EXPENSIVE, TIME CONSUMING ...

  3. THIN FILM OPTICAL SENSORS FOR SUBSURFACE MONITORING OF ORGANIC WASTE BIODEGRADATION

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF BIOREMEDIATION PROCEDURES TO TREAT ORGANIC WASTES CONTAINING CHLORINATED SOLVENTS OR CONCENTRATED ORGANICS PROVIDES AN EFFECTIVE METHOD OF REDUCING SUBSURFACE CONTAMINATION. HOWEVER, THE TRANSITION OF MICROBIALLY MEDIATED BIODEGRADATION FROM LABORATORY STUDIES TO FIELD-BASED METHODS HAS BEEN HAMPERED BY METHODOLOGICAL LIMITATIONS RELATED TO THE INABILITY TO VERIFY THE ACTIVITY AND TYPE ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. LASER INTERFEROMETRIC TECHNIQUES FOR TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT

    SBC: Gratings, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LASER APPLICATION FOR NONCONTACT TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT OF A SEMICONDUCTOR WAFER IS BEING DEVELOPED. THE TECHNIQUE CAN BE APPLIED FOR EITHER CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) OR BY RAPID THERMAL PROCESSING (RTP) SYSTEMS. THE METHOD IS BASED ON THERMAL EXPANSION OF A SEMICONDUCTOR WAFER, AND USES SPECKLE PATTERNS GENERATED FROM THE BACK (ROUGH SURFACE) OF THE WAFER. SPECKLE PATTERNS ARE GENERATED ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. MICROCONTAMINATION REDUCTION IN PLASMA PROCESSING THROUGH CHARGE STATE MODIFICATION

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMA PROCESSING HAS MOVED TO THE FOREFRONT OF INTEGRATED CIRCUIT (IC) FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY. CONTAMINANTS CONTINUE TO PLAGUE THE INDUSTRY BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE THAN 50 PERCENT OF THE YIELD LOSSES. THESE PARTICLES ALSO ACT TO LIMIT THE FEATURE DENSITY ON THE IC WAFERS. ADVANCES IN CLEANROOM TECHNOLOGY HAVE RESULTED IN THE PLASMA PROCESSOR BEING THE MAIN SOURCE OF MICROCONTAMINANTS. PART ...

  10. POLISHING OF SAPPHIRE FOR OPTICAL APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT PROCESSES FOR MANUFACTURING SAPPHIRE INTRODUCE A NUMBER OF DEFECTS SUCH AS DIE MARKS AND GROWTH ARTIFACTS IN THE AS-GROWN SAPPHIRE BLANK. THUS, THESE MATERIALS NEED TO BE POLISHED PRIOR TO USE IN OPTICS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A HIGH-QUALITY, HIGH-SPEED, COST-EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR POLISHING SAPPHIRE BASED OPTICS. THE TWO METHODS CURRENTLY USED FOR POLISHING SAPPHI ...
