Abstract : The purpose of this program is to develop the basis for continuing research of interest to the Air Force at the institution of the faculty member; to stimulate continuing relations among faculty members and professional peers in the Air Force to enhance the research interests and capabilities of scientific and engineering educators; and to provide follow-on funding for research of particular promise that was started at an Air Force laboratory under the Summer Faculty Research Program. During the summer of 1992 185 university faculty conducted research at Air Force laboratories for a period of 10 weeks. Each participant provided a report of their research, and these reports are consolidated into this annual report. The following reports were among those completed during the Air Force 1992 Apprenticeship Program: The Development of Multi-Dimensional Fourier Transform to Be Used to Predict the Light Scattering Off an Optic; Programming Bar Code Readers for Inventory Purposes using the Interactive Reader Language; High Resolution Statistical Models for Prediction of Cloud Cover; Exploring Electromagnetic Effects; Fuzzy-C Optical Tracker; Thermal Control Using Scrapers in a Rotating-Disk, Wetted-Wall Chemical Reactor; Setting Up a Workstation-Based Computing Area for Development and Simulation; Iterated Function Systems: Fractal Modeling of Real-World Natural Systems; Scientific Visualization of a Carbon-60 Molecule; Research into the Causes of Pre-Fires; Synthesis and Purification of Fullerenes; Using Fuzzy Logic in the Design of Systems to Destroy Missiles Based on Infrared Emissions; Investigation of Neural Network Based Lightning Warning System for the Kennedy Space Center; Polyester Synthesis and Analysis; A Look at Theoretical Specific Impulse in Potential Solution Propellants; Master Oscillator Power Amplifier Basics; Coming in for a Landing; Reduction and Analysis of Synchrotron Spectroscopic Data; and 5 others.
