  1. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  2. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  3. A Virtual Machining and Inspection System (VMIS)

    SBC: Icamp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the VMIS is to allow manufacturers the luxury of testing and perfecting manufacturing plans long before a single machine tool is turned on and resources are committed. The VMIS will allow the user to select an available machine tool and an available inspection device, specify a proposed inspection plan and a dimensional analysis procedure, and then build and inspect hundreds (or ev ...

  4. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...

  5. ROBUST DESIGN ENGINEERING WORKSTATION

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    MSI PROPOSES TO INCORPORATE BACKGROUND SUBSTITUTION OF "FAULTY MODELS" IN CAD DESIGN SIMULATION OF ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS TO PERFORM A "DESIGN OF EXPRIMENTS" DETERMINATION OF SENSITIVITY TO PARAMETRIC VARIATION IN COMPONENTS. THE INFORMATION LEARNED WILL BE USED TO SELECT COMPONENTS THAT WILL HAVE A LONGER LIFE, AND GREATER DURABILITY. THIS FORM OF ANALYSIS COMBINED WITH WORST CASE SENSITIVITY ANALYS ...

  9. RESTRICTED VISIBILITY WARNING SYSTEM

    SBC: Ecotek International            Topic: N/A

    ECOTEK INTERNATIONAL PROPOSES AN ALL SOLID-STATE VISIBILITY MONITORING SYSETM THAT WILL BE USED TO MONITOR VISIBILITY CONDITIONS ALONG ROADWAYS AND WARN TRAVELERS OF LOW VISIBILITY CONDITIONS. THE PURPOSE OF THE SYSTEM IS TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MULTIPLE-VEHICLE COLLISIONS AND CONSEQUENT FATALITIES, INJURIES, AND PROPERTY DAMAGES. THE SYSTEM IS BASED ON AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO A WELL-ESTABLISHED ...

  10. PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCES LABORATORY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIFFERENTIATING AMONG THE DENOMINATIONS OF U.S. CURRENCY IS A PROBLEM FOR THE VISUALLY HANDICAPPED. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DEVICES THAT ASSIST THE BLIND IN DETERMINING CURRENCY DENOMINATIONS ARE RELATIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IS A SYSTEMATIC APPLICATION OF PATTERN RECOGNITION AND MICRO-ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY TO DEVELOP A PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER. RECENT AD ...
