  1. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  2. SATELLITE IMAGERY COMPRESSION

    SBC: Alden Electronics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP DATA COMPRESSIONTECHNIQUES USED TO COMPRESS DIGITAL ENVIRONMENTAL SATELLITE DATA FROM THE NATIONAL CLIMATIC DATA CENTER (NCDC) ARCHIVES SUCH THAT THE RESULTING DATA CAN BE READILY USED WITHIN THE LIMITED RESOURCES OF PC/AT SYSTEMS. THE JOINT PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPERTS GROUP (JPEG) HAS DEVELOPED ANINTERNATIONAL STANDARD FOR THE COMPRESSION OF CONTINUOUS TONE DI ...

  4. ON-BOARD PROCESSING OF DOGFISH AND SKATES

    SBC: Fisherman Joint Venture            Topic: N/A

    THE DECLINE IN THE NEW ENGLAND (NE) GROUND FISH STOCK IS SEVERELY AFFECTING THE NE FISHERIES' ECONOMY. TO REVERSE THIS DESTRUCTIVE TREND, NMFS HAS THE DIFFICULT AND UNPOPULARTASK OF IMPLEMENTING STOCK RECOVERY PROGRAMS WHICH REQUIRE CATCH REDUCTIONS. NMFS REPORTS 70% OF PRESENT FISH STOCKS ARE DOGFISH AND SKATES WHICH ARE UNDER-UTILIZED AND ARE GROUND FISH PREDATORS. ALTHOUGH THESE ABUNDANT FISH H ...

  5. NOVEL HOOK AND LOOP TEXTILE PREFORMS FOR LIQUID COMPOSITE MOLDING

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER REINFORCED POLYMERIC COMPOSITES CAN REDUCE WEIGHT, INCREASE CRASHWORTHINESS, AND REDUCE CORROSION RELATIVE TO METALS. HOWEVER, LOW COST MANUFACTURING APPROACHES ARE NEEDED IN ORDER FOR THESE MATERIALS TO BE COMPETITIVE IN HIGH VOLUME AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS. LIQUID COMPOSITE MOLDING (LCM) IS RECOGNIZED AS A PROMISING METHOD FOR RAPID, LOW COST FABRICATION. LOW COST, COMPLEX PREFORMS ARE NEED ...

  6. FEASIBILITY OF A C-BAND SCATTEROMETER TO REMOTELY SENSE HURRICANE PARAMETERS

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH AIMED AT IMPROVING NOAA'S MEASUREMENTS OF HURRICANESURFACE WINDS. WE SPECIFICALLY PROPOSE TO DESIGN A MICROWAVE SCATTEROMETER THAT CAN BE USED TO MEASURE WIND SPEED AND DIRECTION FROM RADAR ECHOS SCATTERED FROM THE OCEAN SURFACE. WE PLAN TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A SPINNING MICROSTRIP ARRAY MOUNTED ON THE BELLY OF THE NOAA P-3 HURRICANE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT. THE PROPOSED ...

  8. INTERACTIVE DNA SEQUENCE PROCESSING FOR A MICROCOMPUTER

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    DNA AND BIOSEQUENCES ARE BEING DETERMINED FASTER THAN THEY CAN BE COMPARED AND ANALYZED. PRESENT TECHNIQUES FOR RIGOROUSLY SEARCHING A LARGE DATABASE ARE COSTLY AND TIME CONSUMING. UNDER ALL PLAUSIBLE GROWTH PROJECTIONS, THE PROBLEM WILL SOON BECOME OVERWHELMING. A CUSTOM, VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT THAT COULD BE USED FOR HIGH SPEED COMPARISON, ANALYSIS, AND INTERPRETATION OF DNA AND PROT ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE REAL TIME SUBSURFACE METHANE/ETHANE DETECTOR SYSTEM FOR NATURAL GAS EXPLORATION AND LEAK/SEEPAGE LOCATION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT STUDIES AN EFFICIENT AND INNOVATIVE NATURAL GAS EXPLORATION SYSTEM COMPOSED OF A HIGHLY SENSITIVE, PORTABLE, REAL TIME, INFRARED LASER DETECTION SYSTEM FOR METHANE AND ETHANE COUPLED TO A PORTABLE SHALLOW DRILLING SYSTEM AND AN AUTOMATED DATA MAPPING SYSTEM. THIS SAME SYSTEM WILL BE DIRECTLY USEFUL IN EVALUATING AND LOCATING UNDERGROUND LEAKS IN NATURAL GAS TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTI ...

  10. AVALANCHE PHOTODIODE DETECTORS FOR THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH SPEED AVALANCHE PHOTODIODE (APD) IS BEING INVESTIGATED THAT WOULD MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CENTRAL TRACKER DETECTOR SYSTEM OF THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC). THE APPROACH WOULD MODIFY EXISTING APD DESIGNS TO YIELD A DEVICE WITH LOWER DARK CURRENT AND FASTER CYCLE TIME WHEN OPERATED IN THE SINGLE-PHOTON COUNTING GEIGER MODE. CONSIDERATIONS INCLUDE THE ADAPTABILITY OF THE DIODE ...
