  1. HIGH SPEED GALIUM ARSENIDE DESIGN TOOL

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INTEREST IN GALIUM ARSENIDE (GAAS) INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (IC) GROWING RAPIDLY BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY FASTAND RESISTANT TO RADIATION. HOWEVER, SOME SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS ARE STILL OF CONCERN. FIRST, THE INCREASED SPEED OF THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS LEAD TO TIMING PROBLEMS IN CIRCUIT DESIGN. WITH THIS TECH- NOLOGY THE GATE SWITCHING SPEEDS HAVE BEEN INCREASED TO WHERE THEY CAN BE EQUIVALENT TO THE WIRE TRANSMI ...

  2. LARGE SCALE SYSTEM RELIABILITY EVALUATION

    SBC: Carlsen & Fink Associates            Topic: N/A

    WHILE THE NATION'S ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING CONTINUES TO BECOME INCREASINGLY DEPENDENT ON THE NATION'S ELECTRIC ENERGY SYSTEMS, CONTINUED RELIABLE PERFORMANCE OF THOSE SYSTEMS MUST BE MAINTAINED DESPITE INCREASING FINANCIAL AND OPERATING CONSTRAINTS. THE TASK OF MAINTAINING ACCEPTABLE LEVELS OF RELIABILITY IS MADE INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT BY THE LACK OF ANALYTICAL TOOLS FOR RELIABILITY EVALUAT ...

  3. POWER SYSTEM STATIC SECURITY CONTROL

    SBC: Carlsen & Fink Associates            Topic: N/A

    SECURITY CONTROL OF POWER SYSTEMS INVOLVES THE MONITORING OFTHE SYSTEM STATE, THE EVALUATION OF SYSTEM VULNERABILITY TO POTENTIAL DISTURBANCES, AND CONTROL ACTION CALCULATED TO CONSTRAIN THAT VULNERABILITY TO AN ACCEPTABLE LOW VALUE. BECAUSE OF THE PERVASIVE UNCERTAINTIES IN THIS PROBLEM, SECURITY CONTROL IN PRACTICE HAS BEEN RESTRICTED TO EMPIRICAL, SOMETIMES INTUITIVE PROCEDURES, SUPPORTED AT BE ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A CATALYTIC INFRARED COOKING GAS BURNER

    SBC: Catalytic Energy Corp            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL GAS-FIRED COOKING RANGES HAVE LOW OVERALL THERMAL COOKING EFFICIENCY, WASTING APPROXIMATELY HALF OF THE COMBUSTION ENERGY. FURTHER, COOKING IMPLEMENTS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A MAJOR SOURCE OF THE INDOOR AIR POLLUTANTS NO2 AND CO. THE PURPOSE OF THE RESEARCH PROPOSEDHEREIN IS TO CONSTRUCT A WORKING PROTOTYPE OF A CATALYTIC INFRARED GAS BURNER SUITABLE FOR COMMERCIAL AND DOMESTIC COOKI ...

  5. A PERSONALIST APPROACH TO ESTIMATING POPULATIONS OF INSTITUTIONS APPLIED TO MARKET RESEARCH

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    WHEN A BUSINESSMAN OR OTHER DECISION MAKER NEEDS AN ESTIMATE (SAY, OF SALES OF A NEW INDUSTRIAL PRODUCT), AND HEHAS ACCESS TO RICH AND VARIED INFORMATION, BUT LIMITED RESOURCES HE NORMALLY MAKES HEAVY USE OF JUDGEMENT IN HIS ENQUIRY. PERSONALIST (BAYESIAN) STATISTICS PROVIDES A LOGICAL FRAMEWORK TO GUIDE THE USE OF SUCH JUDGMENT, IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANY SAMPLE OR OTHER DATA. IN PARTICULAR, IT PROD ...

  6. AN INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK FOR KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION AND ACQUISITION

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    MANY DIVERSE METHODS OF KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION HAVE BEEN USED BY AI RESEARCHERS. NONE APPEAR POWERFUL ENOUGH TO CAPTURE THE DIVERSE TYPES OF KNOWLEDGE THAT PEOPLE POSSESS NOR DO THEY APPEAR FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THE ACQUISITION OF KNOWLEDGE. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION SCHEME THAT INTEGRATES THREE MAJOR FRAMEWORKS: SCHEMAS/FRAMES, PRODUCTION RULES AND MENTAL ...

  7. BIOPOLYMER PRODUCTION FROM WASTEWATER SLUDGES FOR ENCAPSULATION AND OTHER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Health & Environment Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TASKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SOUND MANAGEMENT AND DISPOSAL OF SLUDGES FROM INDUSTRIAL AND MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT OPERATIONS ARE COMPLEX AND EXPENSIVE. THE RECOVERY OF VALUABLE RESOURCES FROM SLUDGES MUST BE AN IMPORTANT INTENT OF THE SLUDGE MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGIES OF THE FUTURE, IF THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH WASTE DISPOSAL OPERATIONS ARE TO BE CONTAINED. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS AIMED AT D ...

  8. MATHEMATICAL PROGRAMMING AND SUPERCOMPUTERS

    SBC: Ketron Management Science Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  9. IMPROVED CELL AND TISSUE CULTURE SYSTEMS FOR MAIZE.

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    PRELIMINARY LABORATORY WORK HAS IDENTIFIED TWO FACTORS WHICH EFFECT THE EASE OF INITIATION OF EMBRYOGENIC CULTURES OF MAIZE AND THE EASE OF MAINTENANCE OF SUCH CULTURES. THESE TWO FACTORS ARE DESCRIBED IN THE PROPOSAL. S-AZACYTIDINE APPEARS TO EXTEND THE WINDOW DURING WHICH TISSUE IS COMPETENT TO FORM EMBRYOGENIC CALLUS. THIS FACT MAY BE EXPLOITED TO INITITATE EMBRYOGENE CULTURES FROM OTHER TISSUE ...

  10. IDENTIFICATION OF THE MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND GENETICS OF ALUMINUM TOLERANCE

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES ARE A MAJOR FOCUS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ECONOMICALLY IMPROVED CROP CULTIVARS BUT TO DATE LITTLE PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN DEVELOPING PROCESSES WHICH CAN IMPROVE ON THE UNDERSTANDING OF STRESS TOLERANCE OR AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF STRESS TOLERANT CULTIVARS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH DEVELOPS A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING STRESS TOLERANCE. ALUMINUM TOXICITY HAS BEEN C ...
