  1. A Virtual Machining and Inspection System (VMIS)

    SBC: Icamp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the VMIS is to allow manufacturers the luxury of testing and perfecting manufacturing plans long before a single machine tool is turned on and resources are committed. The VMIS will allow the user to select an available machine tool and an available inspection device, specify a proposed inspection plan and a dimensional analysis procedure, and then build and inspect hundreds (or ev ...

  2. An Expert System for Aquaculture Environment Control

    SBC: Ortech Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will explore the use of a fuzzy logic based expert system in a closed loop control system for nitrate removal (denitrification) from large aquaculture systems. Nitrate is naturally generated by the bio-mass in any aquatic system. Current techniques for the control of nitrate levels are almost exclusively based on water exchange. For large ...

  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. 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 ...

  7. CHARACTERIZATION OF HAIL BY ACOUSTIC PROFILE

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM IS ORGANIZED TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ACOUSTIC APPROACH TO AUTONOMOUS DETECTION, IDENTIFICATIONAND MEASUREMENT OF HAIL. THE SENSOR, WHICH IS DESIGNED TO DISCRIMINATE HAIL FROM RAIN AND OTHER FORMS OF PRECIPITATIONIS CONFIGURED IN A SMALL, ALL SOLID STATE UNIT WITH NO MOVING PARTS. LOW COST, LOW POWER CONSUMPTION AND HIGH RELIABILITY ARE ALL IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ...

  8. POLYCULTURE OF MARINE SHRIMP AND OYSTERS IN PONDS

    SBC: Ocean Ventures Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT RESEARCH ON POLYCULTURE OF OYSTERS IN PONDS WITH MARINE SHRIMP. SURVIVAL OF OYSTERS IN STATIC WATER PONDS IS LOW, BUT IT IS ANTICIPATED THE SURVIVAL AND GROWTH WILL BE GOOD IN PONDS WHERE AERATION DEVICESCAUSE WATER TO CIRCULATE WITHIN THE POND. BESIDES THE OBV IOUS ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO BE DERIVED FROM THE SALE OF OYSTERS, BENEFITS TO GENERAL POND PRODUCTIVITY ARE ANTICIP ...

  10. INTERACTIVE EXPERT EDITING SYSTEM

    SBC: Synercom Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXPERT SYSTEM FOR LABELING MAPS RE QUIRES THE PRECISE MODELING OF CARTOGRAPHER'S COMPETENCE WITHIN THE COMPUTER. THIS MODEL CAN BE LARGELY SUBDIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS: GENERALLY ACCEPTED CARTOGRAPHIC RULES, PROJECT SPECIFIC PROCEDURES AND REQUIREMENTS, AND A SYSTEM OF HEURISTICS BASED ON "RULES OF THUMB." RELATIVELY SIMPLE PROGRAMS YIELD ACCEPTABLE RESULTS FOR SIMPLE CASES. H ...
