  1. A NEURAL TECHNOLOGY SMART SENSOR FOR SATELLITE ATTITUDE DETERMINATION

    SBC: Complex Systems Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO DESIGNAND CHARACTERIZE A PROTOTYPE NEURAL TECHNOLOGY SENSORY SYSTEM, A "SMART SENSORY RETINA," TO PERFORM SATELLITE AND SPACECRAFT ATTITUDE DETERMINATION BY STAR PATTERN IDENTIFICATION. THE PROPOSED SENSOR CHIP IS CALLED A RETINA BECAUSE, LIKE BIOLOGICAL RETINAS, IT COMBINES OPTICAL TRANSDUCTION AND PREPROCESSING WITHIN A SINGLE ANALOG COMPUTING SURFACE. T ...

  6. A Patterns Based Model for Software Design Rationale Capture

    SBC: Tri-state Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    Capturing the rationale behind decision making in design plays an important role to explain a design, redesign and/or reuse an existing design. Existing design rationale models suffer from the lack of integrating rationale with the design process. The integration is crucial for the domain of software design due to its complexity. A model for design rationale capture and its related knowledge ba ...

  7. A Rapid, Controlled and Selective Etching Tool for Bonded Wafer Processing

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an etching tool based upon its patented Fast Atom Sample Tester (FAST) technology that addresses a critical processing problem faced by manufacturers of Bonded wafers. The fabrication process for bonded wafers results in a 5 mm wide strip of partially delaminated silicon along the perimeter of the 8-in. wafer which can serve as a source of unaccep ...

  9. A Rubust System for Automated Video-Based Vehicle Recognition

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: SB031015

    We propose an end-to-end video-based system for online class recognition of moving vehicles observed by a passive stationary camera. SAVOR (or System for Automated Video-based Object Recognition) continuously detects, tracks, and classifies vehicles within the camera's field of view in real time, additionally providing a live operator display and archiving data and results for later analysis. To o ...

  10. A SAFE, HIGH-POWER-DENSITY LITHIUM BATTERY

    SBC: ECO ENERGY CONVERSION            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM RELATES TO THE EVALUATION OF A NEW CATHODE CATALYST IN DIS-TYPE LI/SOC12 CELLS. THIS NEW CA CATALYST HAS BEEN SHOWN TO CHANGE THE CATHODE REACTION MECHANISM AND TO INCREASE BOTH CATHODE RATE (FACTOR OF TEN) AND CAPACITY (FACTOR OF AT LEAST TWO) IN BOBBIN-TYPE LI/SOC12 CELLS. THE NEW MECHANISM RESULTS IN A DECREASE IN CATHODE OVERPOTENTIAL (LESS LIC1) AND A SAFER LI/SOC12 CELL. ...
