  1. A RELIABLE LOCOMITIVE CAB ALERTER

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED FOR LOCOMOTIVE CAB ALERTERS THAT CAN BE RETROFITTED TO ALERTER SYSTEMS ALREADY IN SERVICE. THE CONCEPTS INCLUDE A TOUCH SCREEN, WHICH REQUIRES TOUCHING A TARGET TO RESET THE TIMER OR TO RESPOND TO THE ALERTER LIGHT PROMPT. THE INITIAL LOCATION OF THE TARGET ON THE SCREEN IS AUTOMATICALLY SELECTED AT RANDOM. ANOTHER CONCEPT IS THE USE OF A TELEPHONE KEYPAD WITH LCD, WH ...

  2. Fast Room Temperature Cure Adhesive for Fiber Optic Connector

    SBC: Advanced Material Systems            Topic: N/A

    Standard U.S. Navy fiber optic assemblies require that the fiber be bonded to the connector using an adhesive that is labor intensive and heat controlled (MIL-A-24792). Advanced Material Systems (AMS) proposes a study that could solve this problem through the development of an adhesive system that would cure at room temperature in less that 3 minutes and yet meet all of the in-service req ...

  5. Micro Air-launched Expendable Meteorological Sonde (MAXMS) with Selective Availability Anti Spoofing Module (SAASM)-compatible GPS

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N03116

    Phase I research was conducted to prove the feasibility of developing a Micro-sized Air-launched Expendable Meteorological Sonde (MAXMS) for both military and research purposes. Conceptual designs were developed for an instrument that can be launched from standard aircraft countermeasures dispensers and that can achieve the required measurement accuracy. Two variants of the design, SAASM compatibl ...

  6. Over-the-Horizon Communications for Small Autonomous Ground Based Observations

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N03139

    There is a need for the capability to transmit data from various types of unattended ground based sensors such as biological/chemical, meteorological, audio/video surveillance, communication monitoring/decoying and vehicle/personnel movement sensors. These sensors will be precision air deployed using standard countermeasures dispensers and will be packaged in standard flare and chaff countermeasu ...

  7. Airborne and Air-Deployed Multi-Sensor Search Optimization

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N04022

    Since the Second World War, increased performance has been acquired by investing heavily in expensive new sensor hardware, at the near exclusion of developing new algorithms and tactics to optimize use of sensors in complex environments. The shift toward threats in just such hostile areas demands a more synergistic approach wherein new sensors breed new tactics, and possibly vice versa. The opti ...

  8. CURVE (Coordinated UAV Routing in Variable Environments)

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N04T003

    The objective is to determine the best algorithmic approach to optimally select unmanned vehicle flight paths that maximize mission success for attached sensors. That involves trade-offs between a) active emissions and passive collections, b) high and low altitudes, c) high and low speeds, d) day and night operations, e) rough and smooth terrain, f) accuracy and efficiency, etc. The solutions wi ...

  9. Surf Zone (SZ) Mapping and Sensor System

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N04141

    The importance of Very Shallow Water (VSW) and the Surf Zone (SZ), VSW/SZ, for littoral operations is well known. Both ocean dynamic conditions and bathymetry may vary significantly in space and time. The harsh SZ environment (mainly due to currents, waves, and surf) makes data collection using in-situ sensors or Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) difficult especially for a mobile sensor syst ...
