  1. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  2. ABDUCTIVE NETWORKS FOR COMPLEX AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SOLVE MANY COMPLEX AIR FORCE PROBLEMS. ADVANCES IN COMPUTING SPEED AND EXISTING SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY ALONE ARE UNLIKELY TO RESULT IN REAL-TIME AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF MEETING THE COMPLEX REQUIREMENTS OF THE AIR FORCE MISSION. RATHER, AN ALTERNATIVE METHODOLOGY SUCH AS ABDUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY, A NEW TECHNOLOGY PRESENTED IN THIS ...

  5. A VLSI NEUROCOMPILER FOR MASSIVELY INTERCONNECTED MODELS

    SBC: ADVANCED SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    MASSIVELY INTERCONNECTED COMPUTERS, COMMONLY CALLED NEUROCOMPUTERS, ARE AT THE HEART OF SIXTH-GENERATION COMPUTING. TO DATE, HOWEVER, ONLY NEUROCOMPUTER SIMULATORS AND EMULATORS ARE AVAILABLE. THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL DEVELOP TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES TO TRANSLATE NEUROCOMPUTERS INTO COMPUTATIONALLY EQUIVALENT DIGITAL VLSI CIRCUITS. CONCEPTS FROM SWITCHING CIRCUIT THEORY WILL BE USED TO TRANSLATE IND ...

  6. LIGHT-WEATHER DATABASE FOR REENTRY TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEVELOPMENT OF A PLAN AND ITS DEMONSTRATION IN PRODUCING MODERN DATABASE FOR RV TECHNOLOGIES IS PROPOSED BY USING CLOUD MICROPHYSICAL DATA SETS COLLECTED SINCE 1985 OVER THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT AND U.S. ARMY KWAJALEIN ATOLL. THE PLAN INCLUDES THE USE OF AIRBORNE RADAR, MODELING, AND SATELLITE ADDITIONS TO THE PARTICLE SIZE DATA TO CORRELATE PARTICLE SIZE AND LIQUID WATER CONTENT OVER AN EXTEN ...

  7. SATELLITE KILL ASSESSMENT SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TO MEET THE KINETIC ENERGY ANTI-SATELLITE (KE ASAT) REQUIREMENTS FOR TIMELY AND RELIABLE KILL ASSESSMENT, AEROMET PROPOSES TO RECOMMEND INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES IN REAL-TIME KILL ASSESSMENT SPECTROSCOPY. BECAUSE IT CAN BE CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO ACCURATELY VERIFY SATELLITE ELIMINATION, A KILL ASSESSMENT SYSTEM MUST DISCERN BETWEEN VARIOUS HIT AND MISS PHENOMENA, INCLUDING THE USE OF POTENTIAL COUNTER ...

  8. APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS TO MACHINE VISION FLAME DETECTION

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

    CURRENT TECHNIQUE OF OPTICAL FLAME DETECTION RELY ON THE USE OF NARROW BANDWIDTH SENSORS WHICH HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE PRONE TO FALSE ALARMS. TO ADDRESS THIS NEED, AMERICAN RESEARCH CORPORATION OF VIRGINIA (ARCOVA) PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN INTELLIGENT MACHINE VISION INTERFACE FOR THE DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION OF SPECTRAL FLAME SIGNATURES. THE APPROACH BEING PROPOSED WOULD USE MACHINE VISION ...

  9. POTENTIAL-WELL CONSERVED HELICITY INJECTED ELECTRON-BEAM-DRIVEN MILLIMETER WAVE SOURCE MODIFIED ORBITRON

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

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A MORE EFFICIENT, HIGH POWER MILLIMETER WAVE SOURCE BY MODIFYING THE ORIGINAL ORBITRON MASER. THE ORIGINAL ORBITRON IS DRIVEN BY A SINGLE POWER SUPPLY (I.E.A SMALL CAPACITOR) WHICH GENERATES AN AXISYMMETRIC LOGARITHMIC POTENTIAL-WELL AS RADIALLY DIRECTING (AT FIRST) ELECTRON BEAMS IN THE TUBE OF COAXIAL GEOMETRY. HOWEVER, THE POSITIVE POTENTIAL (V(O)) I ...

  10. POLARON INDUCED RESONANCE MECHANISMS OF DEUTERIUM-LITHIUM FUSION IN A CRYSTALLINE PALLADIUM LATTICE

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

    CONVENTIONAL FUSION PROCESSES ARE NOT EXPECTED TO ACHIEVE BREAK-EVEN WITHIN THE NEXT DECADE. COLD FUSION IS AN EXCITING OPTION, SINCE IT OFFERS AN INEXPENSIVE ALTERNATIVE AND SOME CLAIM BREAK-EVEN HAS ALREADY BEEN ACHIEVED. HOWEVER, TO DAT, NO IN-DEPTH THEORETICAL STUDY OF COLD FUSION HAS BEEN CONDUCTED. LOW NEUTRON FLUX AND THE USE OF LITHIUM HYDROXIDE AS AN ELECTROLYTE IN THE FUSION CELLS USED B ...
