  1. NEURAL NETWORK APPLICATIONS FOR CLOUD-TRACK WIND DETERMINATION

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO APPLY ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS TO THE DERIVATION OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS FROM SATELLITE IMAGERY. IN PHASE I, WE WILL CONCENTRATE ON USING A NEURAL NETWORK IN THE FIRST STEP IN THE DERIVATIO OF CLOUD MOTION VECTORS, THE HEIGHT ASSIGNMENT AND TARGET SELECTION. THE NEURAL NETWORK COMBINES, AT EACH IMAGE PIXEL, BRIGHTNESS IN DIFFERENT CHANNELS TO DETERMINE CLOUD TYPE AND LEVEL (I.E., L ...

  3. PARALLEL METHODS FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL DEVELOP WAVELET-BASED DOMAIN DECOMPOSITION PROCEDURES FOR THE SOLUTION OF THE INITIAL VALUE PROBLEM FOR THE SCHROEDINGER EQUATION ON MULTIDIMENSIONAL SPATIAL DOMAINS. ACCURATE AND PRACTICAL NUMERICAL CALCULATIONS WOULD BE OF GREAT USE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EXTENSION OF THE BORN-OPPENHEIMER PROCEDURE. BEING BOTH COMPACTLY SUPPORTED AND ORTHOGONAL, WAVELETS COMBINE THE ADVANTAGES OF FINI ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW COST MANUFACTURING PROCESS FOR PRODUCTION OF HIGH QUALITY TITANIUM SURGICAL IMPLANT COMPONENTS

    SBC: DYNAMET TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCES IN TITANIUM ALLOY POWDER METALLURGY (P/M), UTILIZING HIGH PURITY STARTING POWDERS, HAVE RESULTED IN STATIC AND DYNAMIC MECHANICAL PROPERTIES COMPARABLE TO WROUGHT TITANIUM ALLOYS. THE DEVELOPMENTS OVERCOME EARLIER LIMITATIONS IN FATIGUE RESISTANCE WHICH RESTRICTED P/M TITANIUM USAGE FROM THE DEMANDING REQUIREMENTS OF SURGICAL IMPLANTS. DUE TO THE INHERENT ECONOMIES OF P/M PROCESSES, P/M T ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A BUOY-MOUNTED CO2 ANALYZER

    SBC: Endeco/ysi, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRECISE MEASUREMENTS ON CO2 UPTAKE BY THE OCEANS ARE NEEDED IN ORDER TO INCREASE OUR CURRENT UNDERSTANDING OF THE GLOBAL CO2 CYCLE, AND DORMULATE INTELLIGENT CO2 MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES. WE PROPOSE TO MONITOR THE CO2 PARTIAL PRESSURE DIFFERENTIAL AT THE AIR-SEA INTERFACE BY DEVELOPING A BUOY-MOUNTED CO2 ANALYZER. OCEAN BUOYS ARE USED FOR PHYSICAL OCEANOGRAPHIC AND METEOROLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS, AND TO ...

  7. A NEW METHODOLOGY FOR FAULT DETECTION OBSERVRS IN VAV SYSTEMS

    SBC: GENSYM CORP.            Topic: N/A

    EQUIPMENT INSTALLED IN BUILDINGS FOR HEATING, VENTILATION, AND AIR CONDITIONING IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY COMPLEX. OPERATION WITH CONFLICTING GOALS IS GETTING MORE DIFFICULT. METHODS ARE NEEDED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE REAL-TIME DETECTION AND DIAGNOSIS OF FAULTS IN BUILDING EQUIPMENT. CURRENT APPROACHED TO SOLVING THIS PROBLEM DO NOT WORK WELL IN NONLINEAR SYSTEMS SUCH AS VAV, AND CAN GIVE INCO ...

  8. ARCHITECTURAL CAD-BASED TOPOLOGICAL MODELS FOR FIRE HAZARD ANALYSES

    SBC: Lorron Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL RESULT IN A LOGICAL DESIGN OF A CAD-BASED TOPOLOGICAL BUILDING MODELING SYSTEM TO FACILITATE THE ORGANIZATION OF, AND ACCESS TO, BUILDING GRAPHIC AND ALPHA-NUMERIC DATA REQUIRED FOR FIRE HAZARD ANALYSES USING NIST AND OTHER FIRE EFFECTS CODES. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM PROVIDES (1) A MEANS OF CONVERTING CAD FLOOR PLANS TO A TOPOLOGICAL (AND ANALYTIC) BUILDING MODEL; (2) AN EXT ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. FEASIBILITY STUDY OF A PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT SOFTWARE PRODUCT FOR MANAGED CARE ORGANIZATIONS

    SBC: Mikalix And Company            Topic: N/A

    QUALITY MANAGEMENT IN HEALTH CARE IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE NATIONAL REFORM AGENDA. THE ABILITY TO ASSESS CONDITION-SPECIFIC OUTCOMES, CONDUCT COMPARATIVE ANALYSES, AND INTERPRET THE CLINICAL RELEVANCE, WILL SHAPE AND DEFINE THE HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY'S RESPONSE TO QUALITY IMPROVEMENT INCENTIVES TO CHANGE. TO ENHANCE THE ABILITY TO MANAGE QUALITY, MIKALIX & COMPANY (M&C) PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF ...
