    • "Things Are in People, People Are in Things": A Phenomenological Approach to H.D.'s HERmione and the Modernist Prosthetic Body
    • Roberg, Alison Stone
    • H.D.’s autobiographical novel HERmione is phenomenological in texture. It portrays both sides of a dynamic process: the individual “creates” the world by adjusting a “psychic lens,” projecting a mental space in which objects can appear;...


    • A Comparison of Two Common Classification Procedures for Economical Urban Land Cover Mapping Using NAIP Imagery
    • Simons, Kent Lowell 1956-
    • Detailed urban land cover maps are increasingly useful and important applications of remote sensing. Municipal agencies and others use land cover maps and data for numerous critical local planning and monitoring functions and for urban geographical...


    • A Compliant Threshold Acceleration Sensor Integrated with Radio Frequency Identifiable Tags
    • Todd, Benjamin L 1978-
    • Fully compliant bistable mechanisms have been proposed to be used as threshold accelerometers. The advantages to using these devices are that they require no external power to operate and maintain their sensing state. Using this characteristic the...


    • A Framework for an Implantable Wireless Pressure and Volume Sensor Focusing on the Diagnosis and Treatment of Shunt Failure in Hydrocephalus Patients
    • Wichern, Donald Monte 1977-
    • The framework for a permanently implantable wireless compliance sensor was developed and validated using laboratory experiments. The proposed sensor would measure the intracranial pressure and fluid volume in the brain and return this information...


    • A Methodology for the Design of Spaceborne Pencil-Beam Scatterometer Systems
    • Spencer, Michael W. 1961-
    • Spaceborne scatterometer instruments are important tools for the remote sensing of the Earth's environment. In addition to the primary goal of measuring ocean winds, data from scatterometers have proven useful in the study of a variety of land...



    • A Survey of Invasive Exotic Ants Found on Hawaiian Islands: Spatial Distributions and Patterns of Association
    • Martin, Camie Frandsen
    • An intensive sampling of all ant species encountered on 6 Hawaiian Islands: Big Island, Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, and Lanai took place between 1988 and 1996. Species presence and absence was recorded at each site. Using remote sensing, variables...


    • Adaptive Quaternion Control for a Miniature Tailsitter UAV
    • Knoebel, Nathan B 1980-
    • The miniature tailsitter is a unique aircraft with inherent advantages over typical unmanned aerial vehicles. With the capabilities of both hover and level flight, these small, portable systems can produce efficient maneuvers for enhanced...


    • An Evaluation of a Low-Cost UAV Approach to Noxious Weed Mapping
    • Jones, Brandon Tyler 1979-
    • Mapping their location and extent is a critical step in noxious weed management. One of the most common methods of mapping noxious weeds is to walk the perimeter of each patch with a handheld GPS receiver. This is the method used at Camp...


    • An Object-Based Image Analysis of Treated and Untreated Pinyon and Juniper Woodlands Across the Great Basin
    • Hulet, April
    • Land managers need to rapidly assess vegetation composition and bare ground to effectively evaluate, manage, and restore shrub steppe communities that have been encroached by pinyon and juniper (P-J) trees. A major part of this process is...


    • Application Improvements of Slab-Coupled Optical Fiber Sensors
    • Chadderdon, Spencer L.
    • This dissertation explores techniques for improving slab-coupled optical fiber sensor (SCOS) technology for use in specific applications and sensing configurations. SCOS are advantageous for their small size and all-dielectric composition which...


    • Characterization and Preliminary Demonstration of Microcantilever Array Integrated Sensors
    • Anderson, Ryan R.
    • I characterize the behavior of microcantilever arrays which utilize the in-plane photonic transduction that I've previously developed and evaluate the performance of the microcantilever arrays in simple sensing scenarios with integrated...


    • Characterizing the Three-Dimensional Behavior of Bistable Micromechanisms
    • Cherry, Brian B 1979-
    • Compliant bistable micromechanisms have been proposed for use in applications such as switches, relays, shutters, and sensing arrays. Unpublished laboratory testing suggests that off-axis forces may affect the bistable nature of fully compliant...


    • Consensus Seeking, Formation Keeping, and Trajectory Tracking in Multiple Vehicle Cooperative Control
    • Ren, Wei 1976-
    • Cooperative control problems for multiple vehicle systems can be categorized as either formation control problems with applications to mobile robots, unmanned air vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicles, satellites, aircraft, spacecraft, and...


    • Construction of Large Geo-Referenced Mosaics from MAV Video and Telemetry Data
    • Heiner, Benjamin Kurt 1981-
    • Miniature Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) are quickly gaining acceptance as a platform for performing remote sensing or surveillance of remote areas. However, because MAVs are typically flown close to the ground (1000 feet or less in altitude), their field...


    • Delineation of mass movement prone areas by Landsat 7 and digitial image processing
    • Howland, Shiloh Marie 1979-
    • The problem of whether Landsat 7 data could be used to delineate areas prone to mass movement, particularly debris flows and landslides, was examined using three techniques: change detection in NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index), change...


    • Design of Piezoresistive MEMS Force and Displacement Sensors
    • Waterfall, Tyler Lane 1980-
    • MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) sensors are used in acceleration, flow, pressure and force sensing applications on the micro and macro levels. Much research has focused on improving sensor precision, range, reliability, and ease of...


    • Development of a Grond-Based High-Resolution 3D-SAR System for Studying the Microwave Scattering Characteristics of Trees
    • Penner, Justin Frank
    • This thesis presents the development of a high-resolution ground-based 3D-SAR system and investigates its application to microwave-vegetation studies. The development process of the system is detailed including an enumeration of high-level...


    • Development of a Pseudo-uniform Structural Velocity Metric for Use in Active Structural Acoustic Control
    • Fisher, Jeffery M 1984-
    • Active control of sound and vibration fields has become an strong area of research over the past few decades. In regards to the active control of acoustic radiation from vibration fields, known as active structural acoustic control (ASAC), there...


    • Development of a Sense and Avoid System for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems
    • Klaus, Robert Andrew
    • Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) represent the future of modern aviation. Over the past 10 years their use abroad by the military has become commonplace for surveillance and com- bat. Unfortunately, their use at home has been far more restrictive....


    • Development of an Energy-Based Nearfield Acoustic Holography System
    • Harris, Michael C 1979-
    • Acoustical-based imaging techniques have found merit in determining the behavior of vibrating structures. These techniques are commonly used in numerous applications to obtain detailed noise source information and energy distributions on source...
