  1. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  2. ROBUST DESIGN ENGINEERING WORKSTATION

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    MSI PROPOSES TO INCORPORATE BACKGROUND SUBSTITUTION OF "FAULTY MODELS" IN CAD DESIGN SIMULATION OF ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS TO PERFORM A "DESIGN OF EXPRIMENTS" DETERMINATION OF SENSITIVITY TO PARAMETRIC VARIATION IN COMPONENTS. THE INFORMATION LEARNED WILL BE USED TO SELECT COMPONENTS THAT WILL HAVE A LONGER LIFE, AND GREATER DURABILITY. THIS FORM OF ANALYSIS COMBINED WITH WORST CASE SENSITIVITY ANALYS ...

  4. A PORTABLE IMAGING SYSTEM FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EXAMINATION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DIFFICULTY IN PREDICTING STRUCTURAL DEGRADATION RATES FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS DUE TO CORROSION AND OTHER FACTORS HAS LED TO THE NEED FOR COSTLY, TIME CONSUMING INSPECTIONS AND INCREASED COST FROM INTENTIONALLY OVERDESIGNED COMPONENTS. THE SITUATION INDICATES A SERIOUS, UNMET NEED FOR A SIMPLE BUT ACCURATE SYSTEM FOR REAL- TIME, IN SITU, NONDESTRUCTIVE ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT ...

  5. RESTRICTED VISIBILITY WARNING SYSTEM

    SBC: Ecotek International            Topic: N/A

    ECOTEK INTERNATIONAL PROPOSES AN ALL SOLID-STATE VISIBILITY MONITORING SYSETM THAT WILL BE USED TO MONITOR VISIBILITY CONDITIONS ALONG ROADWAYS AND WARN TRAVELERS OF LOW VISIBILITY CONDITIONS. THE PURPOSE OF THE SYSTEM IS TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MULTIPLE-VEHICLE COLLISIONS AND CONSEQUENT FATALITIES, INJURIES, AND PROPERTY DAMAGES. THE SYSTEM IS BASED ON AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO A WELL-ESTABLISHED ...

  6. PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCES LABORATORY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIFFERENTIATING AMONG THE DENOMINATIONS OF U.S. CURRENCY IS A PROBLEM FOR THE VISUALLY HANDICAPPED. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DEVICES THAT ASSIST THE BLIND IN DETERMINING CURRENCY DENOMINATIONS ARE RELATIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IS A SYSTEMATIC APPLICATION OF PATTERN RECOGNITION AND MICRO-ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY TO DEVELOP A PEN-SIZE PAPER CURRENCY READER. RECENT AD ...

  7. Clinical Report Cards for Consumers

    SBC: The Performance Link            Topic: N/A

    This prototype product line will result in a "health score card"/"clinical report card" forconsumers to be used to assist them with their decisions regarding health care choices. Consumersatisfaction, quality and clinical outcomes data from both the inpatient and outpatient settings, will beintegrated into a survey system supported by software, with databasing and report generatingcapabilities. Ou ...

  8. Portable, Parallel, Stochastic Optimization for the Design of Aeropropulsion Components

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1994 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Earth-Observing Sensor for Geostationary Orbit

    SBC: Apt, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The specific proposed innovation is the use of an active radiometer in place of conventional radar techniques for measuring rainfall over the earth's surface from satellite platforms. This technique provides a substantial savings in data acquisition time that can be used to increase the scan rate and to improve the spatial resolution (i.e. reduce the footprint) of the measurements. This will provi ...

  10. Thin-Film Pressure Sensor with Optical Output

    SBC: Gre, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a thin, flexible pressure sensing film with optical out- put consisting of a polymer LED on a piezoelectric polymer substrate. The innovation lies in combining these two types of polymers to make a single sensor which will provide a minimal intrusion method for measuring pressure distributions on structures in free-flight and/or wind tunnel tests. Spatial resolution should be better tha ...
