  1. Operational Ocean Instrumentation, Measurements, and Data/Information Dissemination Systems: Digital Camera Visibility Sensor

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 821

    Visibility is a crucial safety issue in all transportation fields, and current technology is inadequate for measuring visibility for a number of reasons including (but not limited to) limited area coverage, overgeneral categorization of visibility conditions, expense, need for direct operation and calibration, and lack of ruggedness. Having demonstrated the practicality of its video-based visibili ...

  2. Vacuum Windows for Third Generation Syschrotron Radiation Beamlines

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Improving the quality and intensity of the x-ray beam is an important design goal for every synchrotron installation. Although small, the effects of vacuum windows on x-ray absorption and phase contrast cannot be neglected. Synchrotron x-rays have wavelengths on the order of one Angstrom (1 x 10-10m), the same order of magnitude as inter-atomic distances. These x-rays are used to study many differ ...

  3. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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- ...

  6. 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 ...
