  1. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Detonators

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify explosive detonators. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape, and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by ...

  2. EXPLOSIVES DETECTION WITH A HAND-HELD FOURIER TRANSFORM ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETER

    SBC: Femtometrics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXPLOSIVE DETECTION CAPABILITIES AT MOST AIRPORTS CONSIST OF MAGNETOMETERS AND X-RAY EQUIPMENT THAT WERE DESIGNED TO DETECT HANDGUNS. U.S. PUBLIC LAW 101-604 WAS ENACTED AFTER THE PAN AM 103 INCIDENT WHICH DICTATES THAT IN ADDITION TO CARRY-ON LUGGAGE, CHECKED BAGS, MAIL AND CARGO MUST BE MONITORED PRIOR TO BEING LOADED ONTO AN AIRCRAFT. THE CANDIDATE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIESMUST ALSO BE TESTED BY A ...

  3. CRITICAL SECTOR DETECTOR TOOL

    SBC: Iat            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PHASE I WORK WILL DEVELOP A CRITICAL SECTOR DETECTOR TOOL CONCEPT THAT WORKS. THE TOOL WILL EVALUATE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER WORKLOAD. IT WILL ANALYZE THE TASK REQUIREMENTS OF HUMAN CONTROLLERS, CALCULATE WORKLOAD FOR THE VARIOUS CONTROLLER POSITIONS OF A SECTOR TEAM, AND COMPARE WORKLOAD ESTIMATES WITH SATURATION LIMITS TO IDENTIFY POTENTIAL OVERLOADS. IT WOULD ALLOW AIR TRAFFIC CONTR ...

  7. VEHICLE AXLE DETECTOR BASED ON NON-CONTACT DETECTION

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PACIFIC-SIERRA RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SENSOR MODULE FOR COUNTING VEHICLE AXLES ON ROADWAYS. THIS SENSOR WOULD NOT REQUIRE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THE ROADBED, AND COULD BE SAFELY SETUP WITHOUT IMPEDING TRAFFIC EVEN TEMPORARILY. THE SENSOR WILL DETECT THE AXLES ON MULTIPLE LANE HIGHWAYS AND KEEP THE SEPARATE LANE COUNTS DISTINCT. THIS ROADWAY LAND AXLE DETECTOR (LAD) IS BASED ON EXISTING ...

  8. Optics for Focal Plane Photochromic Anti-glare Device

    SBC: Quantic Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anti-glare visors and rearview mirrors for cars can be constructed by inserting a photochromic layer in the focal plane of an optical system. Rays from intense glare souces are focused and create dark spots on the photochromic layer and thus self attenuate. Rays from dim objects are left unaffected. The optics can be achieved with either conventional lenses or microlens arrays. Anti-glare devi ...

  9. EVALUATION OF HIGH SENSITIVITY MAGNETIC IMAGING FOR DETECTION OF HIDDEN CORROSION

    SBC: Quantum Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXPERIMENTS AT THE MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (MIT), THE NAVAL RESEARCH LABORATORY, AND QUANTUM MAGNETICS HAVE DEMONSTRATED A NEW POWERFUL NONINVASIVE TECHNIQUE FOR MONITORING ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION PROCESSES VIA THEIR ASSOCIATED MAGNETIC FIELDS. IN ADDITION TO REMOTELY DETECTION CORROSION ACTIVITY, SIMPLE ANALYSIS OF THE TIME EVOLUTION OF THESE MAGNETIC FIELDS CAN HIGHLIGHT SPECIFIC ...

  10. AN AUTOMATED ACTIVITY LOG PREPARATION SYSTEM FOR COAST GUARD COMMAND CENTERS

    SBC: Reticular Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACTIVITY LOGS ARE CURRENTLY MAINTAINED BY COAST GUARD WATCH PERSONNEL. THE CONTENTS VARY DEPENDING ON THE WATCHSTANDER AND EVENTS. THE ACTIVITY LOG MAY CONTAIN HANDWRITTEN ENTRIES, COMPUTER GENERATED TEXT, COPIES OF RECEIVED FACSIMILIES AND VARIOUS OTHER ENTRIES. THE COAST GUARD NEEDS AN IMPROVED METHOD FOR CAPTURING INFORMATION. THIS SYSTEM SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF HANDLING INFORMATION AS IT IS RECEI ...
