  1. OPTICAL DETECTION OF PAVEMENT ICING

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD FOR DETERMINING INCIPIENT ICE LAYER FORMATION ON PAVED SURFACES IS TO BE DEMONSTRATED. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE WILL RELY UPON THE ENHANCEMENT IN SPECULAR REFLECTANCE, I.E., "GLARE," THAT WILL OCCUR WHEN AN OVERLYING ICE LAYER FORMS ON A PAVED SURFACE. THE PROPOSED INVESTIGATIONS WILL ALSO EXPLORE HOW OVERLYING ICE LAYERS MODIFY THE BACKSCATTERED RADIATION OBSERVED OFF PAVEMENT SURFACES. TH ...

  2. PLUME MODELING AND TESTING

    SBC: Physicon Inc            Topic: N/A

    TACTICAL MANEUVERING INTERCEPTORS OPERATE IN THE ATMOSPHERE BUT MAY BE AT A HIGH ENOUGH ALTITUDE TO ENCOUNTER FREE MOLECULAR FLOW. PLUME MODELS USED TO SIMULATE VARIOUS CONDITIONS ENCOUNTERED DURING FLIGHT REQUIRE INCREASINGLY COMPLEX COMPUTATIONAL RESOURCES TO ADVANCE THE STATE-OF-THE-ART. AS THESE MODELS BECOME MORE AND MORE COMPLEX THE RESULTS PREDICTED BY THE MODEL ARE NOT EASILY RELATED TO TH ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A REACTION INJECTION MOLDED (RIM) PALLET ADAPTER FOR THE NEW 155 MM PLASTIC PROP CHARGE CASE

    SBC: Polyform Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW METHODS OF PACKAGING HAS BEEN A PRIMARY CONCERN TO THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. THIS IS EVIDENT IN THE INNOVATIVE METHODS AND MATERIAL CHOICES THAT HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE AMMUNITION LOGISTICS PLANNERS. A MEANS OF ADAPTING PALLETS TO VARIOUS AMMUNITION CONTAINERS IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE. RATHER THAN CONSIDERING THE HIGH COST OF A SPECIAL PALLET FOR EACH CONT ...

  4. FLEXIBLE DYNAMIC IR TARGET

    SBC: Remtech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INEXPENSIVE, PROGRAMMABLE, 3-D THERMAL TARGET WHICH SIMULATES THE IR SIGNATURE OF VARIOUS VEHICLES IS NEEDED TO ASSIST IN DESIGNING MISSILE SEEKERS, TAILORING IR SIGNATURES TO IMPROVE STEALTH CHARACTERISTICS OF VEHICLES, AND FOR DEVELOPING IR IMAGERY DEVICES. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PHASE I STUDY IS TO DEVELOP A FEASIBLE (P) PROGRAMMABLE (IR) (T) TARGET (OR "PIRT") DESIGN, AND TO PRODUCE A WORKABLE ...

  5. TUNABLE SOLID STATE LASER SOURCE

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HEREIN IS TO EXPERIMENTALLY INVESTIGATE AND CHARACTERIZE VISIBLE LASER EMISSION FROM THE SOLID-STATE LASER MATERIAL TI(3+):AL(2)O(3) USING A SURFACE DISCHARGE AS THE PRIMARY EXCITATION SOURCE. RECENTLY, A VISIBLE FLUORESCENCE REGION WAS FOUND TO EXIST EXTENDING FROM 480 TO 690 NANOMETERS AND LASER EMISSION HAS BEEN ACHIEVED IN THIS EMISSION BAND IN THE PROPOSER'S LABORATORY. W ...

  6. EFFICIENT PARAMETRIC GENERATOR AT 4 MICRONS

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of DefenseArmy
  7. PATTERN RECOGNITION OF DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGES

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS CONCERNED WITH THE USE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES FOR IDENTIFICATION AND DISCONTINUITIES WITHIN DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHIC IMAGES. THE INTENDED APPLICATION IS FOR MEDICAL IMAGES IN THE FIELD, I.E., TO AID THE PHYSICIAN IN LOCATING OBJECTS WITHIN THE IMAGE. WE REVIEW THE STATE-OF-THE-ART, INCLUDING RECENT DEVELOPMENTS USING MARKOV RANDOM FIELD MODELS WHICH SHOW GREAT P ...

  9. METHOD FOR MEASUREMENT OF THICKNESS AND DISTRIBUTION OF FUNGICIDE ON TEXTILES

    SBC: SKIAMETRICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MEASURING THE THICKNESS OF A FUNGICIDE COATING ON AN UNDERLYING TEXTILE FABRIC IS APPROACHED FROM TWO PERSPECTIVES, BOTH OF WHICH EXPLOIT THE DIFFERENT X-RAY SCATTERING PROPERTIES OF THE COATING AND BASE MATERIALS. BOTH METHODS PROVIDE A QUANTITATIVE MEASURE OF THE THICKNESS OVER 100% OF THE COATED AREA, WITH COATING THICKNESS RESOLUTION OF APPROXIMATELY 10%. BOTH METHODS ARE NONCONTACT AND CAN BE ...

  10. CLOSED LOOP VISION GUIDED ROBOT

    SBC: Sparta, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I WILL ADDRESS ISSUES IN HIGH-ACCURACY, CLOSED-LOOP VISION GUIDED ROBOT MOTION. IT IS PROPOSED TO USE IMAGE FEATURES WHICH CHANGE WITH THE POSITION OF A ROBOT MOUNTED CAMERA. THE VALUES OF THESE FEATURES COMBINED WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE FEATURE JACOBIAN IN ROBOT CO-ORDINATES WILL BE USED TO CORRECT MANIPULATOR POSITION ALONG A TRAJECTORY. THE MAJOR PHASE I TASK IS TO ANALYTICALLY DETERMINE THE ...
