  1. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  7. RELEVANCE OF VISUAL ACCOMMODATION FOR PERFORMANCE IN SPACECRAFT

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: N/A

    "DARK FOCUS" IS DEFINED AS THE RESTING STATE OF VISUAL ACCOMMODATION YET TWO GENERAL MISCONCEPTIONS EXIST. FIRST, THAT THE RESTING POINT IS AT OPTICAL INFINITY, AND SECONDLY,THAT THE EYE ACCOMMODATES ACCURATELY. VISUAL PERFORMANCES REQUIRED IN SPACE ENTAIL CONTINUOUSLY CHANGING VIEWING DISTANCES AND TO ALLOW CREW MEMBERS TO PERFORM ROUTINELY ACCOMMODATION CHANGES NEED TO BE ASSESSED. WHEN A PERSON ...

  8. K BASE: A HYBRID ANALOGICAL/SEMANTIC MODELER FOR COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN,

    SBC: Gms Technology            Topic: N/A

    LACK OF NON-GEOMETRIC KNOWLEDGE IS IDENTIFIED AS A FUNDAMENTAL FLAW OF THE MODELERS UPON WHICH MOST TRADITIONAL THREE-DIMENSIONAL COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) SYSTEMS ARE FOUNDED. A HYBRID REPRESENTATION SCHEME IS OUTLINED WHICH ADDS NON-GEOMETRIC SEMANTICS TO THE TRADITIONAL MODELING METHODS TO FORM A KNOWLEDGE BASE (K-BASE). THE K-BASE SYSTEM OUTLINED BORROWS CONCEPTS FROM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ...

  9. DETERMINATION OF ORBITING SPACECRAFT ANTENNA DISTORTION BY GROUND-BASED MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: Interferometrics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO STUDY A GROUND-BASED SYSTEM FOR MEASURING THE DISTORTIONS AND POWER DISTRIBUTIONS OF IN-ORBIT REFLECTOR ANTENNAS AND PHASED ARRAYS. THE SYSTEM WILL MEASURE THE FAR-FIELD AMPLITUDES AND PHASES IN THE MAIN BEAM AND SIDELOBES OF THE SATELLITE ANTENNA. THE FOURIER TRANSFORM OF THESE DATA GIVES THE COMPLEX APERTURE DISTRIBUTION. PHASE DEVIATIONS IN THE APERTURE DISTRIBUTION ARE RELATED TO ...
