  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
