  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. DEMONSTRABLY CORRECT COMPILATION (DCC)

    SBC: Baldwin/mchugh Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A TECHNIQUE FOR OBTAINING TRUSTWORTHY COMPILATION BASED ON A COMPILATION CHECKER (SIMILAR TO A PROOF CHECKER) IS PROPOSED. THE TRANSFORMATIONS USED IN A COMPILER WILL BE FORMALLY SPECIFIED AND VERIFIED USING INTERPRETER EQUIVALENCE METHODS. THE COMPILER WILL BE INSTRUMENTED TO PRODUCE A TRACE OF THE TRANSFORMATIONS APPLIED IN THE COMPILATION OF A GIVEN PROGRAM. THE COMPILATION CHECKER WILL VALIDAT ...

  3. INTEGRATION OF EXPERT SYSTEM FOR PROCESS PLANNING AND FEATURE BASED DESIGNS

    SBC: Cim Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE/EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNIQUES HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE ABILITY TO ADDRESS COMPLEX REASONING TASKS REQUIRED FOR PROCESS PLANNING. FEATURE-BASED DESIGN THEORY AND PRELIMINARY EFFORTS HAVE SHOWN THE POTENTIAL OF PROVIDING A FUNDAMENTAL MODEL FOR CAPTURE AND MANIPULATION OF DESIGN KNOWLEDGE. HOWEVER, THE TWO TECHNOLOGIES HAVE NOT BEEN SUFFICIENTLY INTEGRATED TO ALLOW DESIGN FEATURES TO ...

  5. VIRTUAL FACTORIES AS A MECHANISM FOR CONTINUOUS BUSINESS RE-ENGINEERING

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE A SIMULATION/FACTORY CONTROL CAPABILITY TO (1) SIMULATE PRODUCTS, PROCESSES, AND FACTORY CONFIGURATIONS AT MULTIPLE LEVELS OF ABSTRACTION, (2) PROVIDE FINE GRAINED ANALYSIS OF PRODUCT AND PROCESS DESIGNS, AND (3) PROVIDE A MODEL DRIVEN FACTORY CONTROL ARCHITECTURE SO THAT THE MODELS EXECUTED IN THE SIMULATION STUDIES CAN BE DIRECTLY US ...

  6. APPLICATIONS OF FULLERENES: CATALYST SUPPORTS FOR AQUEOUS FUEL CELLS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FUEL CELLS OPERATING IN AQUEOUS ELETROLYTES (BELOW 200¿C, DEPENDING ON THE CHOSEN ELECTROLYTE TECHNOLOGY) NORMALLY OPERATE ON HYDROGEN FUEL AND OXYGEN (OR AIR) AS THE OXIDANT. HIGH-PERFORMANCE FUEL CELL ELECTRODES REQUIRE HIGH CATALYST SURFACE AREAS, GOOD ELECTRONIC CONDUCTIVITIES AND BROAD REACTION ZONES, DEFINED BY THE CONTACT AREA BETWEEN THE CATALYST, THE GAS PHASE REACTANT AND THE ELECTROLYT ...

  7. DIGESTIVE ENZYME SUPPLEMENTS TO INERT FEEDS FOR SMALL-EGG FISH LARVAE

    SBC: International Aquaculture Res            Topic: N/A

    INADEQUATE STARTER FEEDS SEVERELY HOLD BACK NEW AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES SUCH AS PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO RAISE FISHES WHOSE LARVAE DEVELOP FROM SMALL EGGS AND HAVE VERY "DIFFICULT" FOOD REQUIREMENTS. INERT LARVAL FEEDS HAVE NOT SUCCESSFULLYELIMINATED THE STRICT DEPENDENCY ON NATURAL FORAGE DURING THE CRITICAL POST-LARVAL STAGE AFTER YOLK ABSORPTION AND BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH ...

  8. APPLICATION OF VLSI TO VECTOR ACCUMULATORS AND INTEGRATING TIME TO DIGITAL CONVERTER

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESIGN, SIMULATION, FABRICATION, AND EVALUATION OF A PROTOTYPE VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION (VLSI) DATA ACQUISITION SUBSYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AVAILABLE STATE-OF-THE-ART ONE MICRON CMOS TECHNOLOGY MAY ALLOW INCORPORATION OF MORE THAN 128 CHANNELS OF 24-BIT 300 MHZ COUNTERS INTO A SINGLE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT. A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM OF SIMPLE REPEATED CELLS OF COUNTERS, CONTROL AND I/O BUFFERS HAS BEEN DESIGN ...

  9. NEURAL NETWORKS FOR ADAPTIVE THREAT RESPONSE

    SBC: MARTINGALE RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NEURAL NETWORKS ARE A PROMISING SOLUTION TO SEVERAL PROBLEMS IN THE APPLICATION OF PARALLEL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY FOR ADAPTIVE RECOGNITIONAND RESPONSE TO COMPLEX PATTERNS. UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS NOT KNOWN HOW TO GET A NEURAL NETWORK TO RECOGNIZE PATTERNS INDEPENDENTLY OF THE VALUES OF THEIR FEATURE PARAMETERS WITHOUT INCORPORATING SPECIAL INVARIANT TRANSFORMS FOR EACH SUCH FEATURE. THIS PROPOSAL INT ...

  10. POLYCULTURE OF MARINE SHRIMP AND OYSTERS IN PONDS

    SBC: Ocean Ventures Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT RESEARCH ON POLYCULTURE OF OYSTERS IN PONDS WITH MARINE SHRIMP. SURVIVAL OF OYSTERS IN STATIC WATER PONDS IS LOW, BUT IT IS ANTICIPATED THE SURVIVAL AND GROWTH WILL BE GOOD IN PONDS WHERE AERATION DEVICESCAUSE WATER TO CIRCULATE WITHIN THE POND. BESIDES THE OBV IOUS ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO BE DERIVED FROM THE SALE OF OYSTERS, BENEFITS TO GENERAL POND PRODUCTIVITY ARE ANTICIP ...
