  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. THE NUMERICAL SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS OF COLD-SEASON SEVERE WEATHER EVENTS

    SBC: MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENTAL SIMULATIONS AND OPERATIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    THE FUNDAMENTAL GOAL FOR THIS RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF THE DYNAMICAL PROCESSES ASSOCIATED WITH EAST COAST COLD SEASON SEVERE CONVECTIVE EVENTS AND TO NUMERICALLY SIMULATE THESE EVENTS IN ORDER TO PROVIDE HIGHER QUALITY OBJECTIVE GUIDANCE TO THE FORECASTER. THE PHASE I OBJECTIVE IS TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A MESO-B SCALE DYNAMICAL MODEL TO ASSIST IN THE REAL- ...

  3. FUNCTIONAL INTEGRAL FORMULATION OF THREAT AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING

    SBC: A & D Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN COMPUTATION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS PARALLEL PROCESSING ARE WELL-SUITED FOR THE SOLUTION OF SUCH PROBLEMS AS THE SIMULTANEOUS GLOBAL EXTREMIZATION OF MULTIPLE VARIABLES IN A COMPLEX, NONLINEAR, PROBABILISTIC STATE SPACE. HOWEVER, THE USE OF THESE TECHNIQUES TO SOLVE A GIVEN PROBLEM REQUIRES THAT IT FIRST BE FORMULATED IN THESE TERMS. CURRENTLY, THREAT-AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING IS APPROACHED AS ...

  4. Phase separated enzyme inhibitor electrode for mercury compounds

    SBC: ALDERON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MERCURY IS A HIGHLY TOXIC MATERIAL THAT OCCURS IN BOTH ORGANIC AND INORGANIC FORMS. BECAUSE OF ITS WIDESPREAD INDUSTRIAL USE THE WHOLE POPULATION IS EXPOSED TO MERCURY COMPOUNDS EVERYDAY. THERE IS A NEED FOR A FAST, EASY TO USE, INEXPENSIVE, SENSITIVE METHOD FOR THE DETECTION OF MERCURY TO REDUCE THE RISK OF CHRONIC EXPOSURE. OUR OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR THE SELECTIVE DETECTION ...

  5. ADVANCED AI TECHNIQUES FOR MULTIACUITY ATR

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM IN AUTOMATIC TARGET RECOGNITION (ATR) IS THE OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF SENSOR DATA WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED. MANY ADVANCED ATR ALGORITHMS WHICH REDUCE THE FALSE ALARM RATE CANNOT BE EXECUTED IN REAL TIME DUE TO COMPUTATIONAL COMPLEXITY. THIS LIMITS OVERALL SYSTEM PERFORMANCE. IN ATR, THE FEATURES THAT MUST BE RESOLVED ARE LOCALIZED WITHIN THE FIELD-OF-VIEW (FOV) OF THE SENSOR. UN ...

  6. DIGITAL INTERFACE BETWEEN MULTISPECTRAL FORCE LAYDOWN AND MULTISPECTRAL ENVIRONMENT GENERATOR

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD OF CONVENIENTLY ADOPTING EXISTING SCENARIO LAYDOWNS TO A FORM COMPATIBLE WITH EXISTING MULTISPECTRAL SIMULATOR WILL ALLOW FACILITIES SUCH AS THE CECOM CENTER FOR EW/RSTA TO QUICKLY AND ECONOMICALLY CONFIGURE TEST SCENARIOS. NUMEROUS "BLESSED" MULTISPECTRAL LAYDOWNS EXIST THAT COULD BE IMPLEMENTED INTO SIMULATOR TESTING METHODOLOGIES WITH A MULTISPECTRAL INTERFACE. A COMPLEMENTARY METHOD F ...

  7. ATTENTION IN ACTIVE VISION

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN ATTENTION MECHANISM CAN INFLUENCE SYSTEM BEHAVIOR AND PERFORMANCE ONLY TO THE EXTENT IN WHICH SYSTEM RESOURCES ARE ALLOCATABLE. A KEY VISUAL SYSTEM RESOURCE IS ACUITY, AND YET THIS RESOURCE IS FIXED IN CONVENTIONAL UNIFORM ACUITY MACHINE VISION. FEATURES TO BE RESOLVED BY ACTIVE VISION ARE TYPICALLY LOCALIZED WITHIN THE FOV. UNIFORM SAMPLING WITHIN THE FOV IS THUS INAPPROPRIATE; REGIONS WITH LI ...

  10. FLEXIBLE EASILY MODIFIABLE MESSAGE PARSING SYSTEMS

    SBC: Applied Logic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ARMY UNITS MAKE USE OF A VARIETY OF PSEUDO-FORMATTED MESSAGE TYPES, PARTICULARLY FOR TACTICAL INTELLIGENCE PROCESSING. THESE MESSAGES EXHIBIT CONSIDERABLE VARIATION FROM OFFICIAL FORMATS, REFLECTING DIFFERING OPERATING PROCEDURES OR CHANGING NEEDS. OFFICIAL MESSAGE FORMATS ARE AMENABLE TO STANDARD COMPUTER SCIENCE PARSING TECHNIQUES, BUT SUCH PARSERS ARE RIGID, AND ALTERATIONS ARE VIRTUALLY IMPOSS ...
