  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

    SBC: Polymer Bridge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed in 1 eight-hour day; and 4) be cost-competitive on an installed cost basis. This bridge will be buil ...

  7. Enhancing the Usability of an Intersection Collision Avoidance Simulation Method

    SBC: Rioux Engineering            Topic: 03FH2

    The TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic is a high-quality single-intersection microscopic traffic simulation model developed at The University of Texas at Austin. It analyzes in sub microscopic detail the behavior of driver-vehicle units as they go through an intersection and intermix with other traffic flows. It has detailed intersection geometry, path following, microscopic car following, lan ...

  8. CNT-Based D2 Ion Source for Improved Neutron and Photon Generator

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) proposes to develop a novel field ionization technology to produce a deuterium ion (D+) current for a neutron source or gamma-ray source enabling fast switching, high repetition rate and high yields. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have a high aspect ratio structure (they are long and narrow) that induces high electric field concentration, thus they are ideal choices for electr ...

  9. Bio-Advise- A Rapid and Fully Automated Biothreat Evaluation Model

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB062002

    In the event of a biological threat, first responders need tools that enable them to rapidly determine if a release is real or a hoax, which requires identifying multiple threat agents from a complex environmental sample. Current threat analysis is costly, time-consuming, and requires complex procedures with considerable expertise to execute. Lynntech s solution is BioAdvise, a simple, self-contai ...

  10. Advanced Unattended Ground Sensor (AUGS)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: HSB062003

    SPEC will develop and deliver a suite of extended duration (2 year+), covert, unattended sensors for near real-time monitoring of the passage of people and vehicles in critical, remote border areas. The Advanced Unattended Ground Sensor (AUGS) will form a robust network of sensors, using a variable information bridge, to relay actionable information to the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). Advanced ...
