  1. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...

  2. Digital Waveform-Based System for Acoustic Emission Measurement for Nondestructive Testing of Structural Steel

    SBC: Digital Wave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Digital Wave Corporation proposed to develop a novel nondestructive testing (NDT) system for high speed acquisition and analysis of wide band acoustic emission (AE) waveforms. The system will provide the capability to detect, identify and locate crack growth in loaded steel structures. This system will incorporate the new high fidelity sensor developed by the Federal Highway Administration and a ...

  5. STRUCTURES

    SBC: Invocon Consultants            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO MONITOR VIBRATION IN HIGHWAY BRIDGES. IT IS DESIRABLE TO MONITOR MANY POINTS ON THE BRIDGE. THE CURRENT PROBLEM IS THAT SENSORS MUST BE WIRED TO A CENTRAL LOCATION. WIRE IS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL AND TO MOVE. THE SOLUTION IS TO COLLECT SENSOR DATA BY RADIO. A SYSTEM EXISTS THAT ELIMINATES WIRE. IT GATHERS SENSOR DATA TO A CENTRAL LOCATION BY RADIO. THE SYSTEM'S UNIQUE FEATURE IS THA ...

  6. Field Energy Recoil Emission Technology (FERET)

    SBC: Invocon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Passenger safety concerns have prompted the FAA to elicit energy-sensitive neutron detectors which do not rely on the time-of-flight method and are suitable for use in explosive detection systems. Invocon, Inc. proposes to design an inspection system consisting of an energy source and a detector. Designated FERET sytem, (Field Energy Recoid Emission Technology), it would detect substances identi ...

  8. Small Absolute Gravimeter

    SBC: Micro-g Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will test the feasibility of a compact absolute gravimeter for use in rugged field environments such as ocean floors and the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica. The accuracy of the measurement should be better than 5x10^-7 m/s^2 (10 uGal) in an observing period of 24 hours. Phase I will show the feasibility of a new miniature optical design and fringe detection system. We will demonstrat ...

  10. An Expert System for Aquaculture Environment Control

    SBC: Ortech Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will explore the use of a fuzzy logic based expert system in a closed loop control system for nitrate removal (denitrification) from large aquaculture systems. Nitrate is naturally generated by the bio-mass in any aquatic system. Current techniques for the control of nitrate levels are almost exclusively based on water exchange. For large ...
