  1. "MAGLEV OPTICAL DETECTION OF OBSTACLES (MODO)"

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 Department of Transportation
  2. IN SITU INFARED FIBER OPTIC SENSOR FOR NDI CORROSION AND DISBOND DETECTION IN AIRCRAFT JOINTS/FASTENERS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FOSTER-MILLER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL INFARED FIBER OPTIC SENSOR TO NON-DESTRUCTIVELY DETECT CORROSIVE ATTACK AND DISBONDING A BOTH METAL-TO-METAL AND COMPOSITE TO METAL JOINTS AND FASTENERS IN AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES. THIS NEW INFRARED NDI SYSTEM WILL BE A POWERFUL ANALYTICAL TOOL TO DETECT THE ONSET OF DISBONDING AND INTRUSION OF CORROSIVE ELEMENTS INTO THE JOINT LONG BEFORE IT BECOMES VISIBLE B ...

  3. Chemical-Free Deicing- A Systems Approach

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes an innovative approach to non-chemical deicing of aircraft which focuses on new technology which could provide revolutionary improvement in the performance of a relatively mature deicing technique. This combined systems approach could be readily incorporated into existing aircraft and ground support equipment. We propose to develop a permanent anti-icing surface treatment ...

  4. "An Object Oriented Network Data Model for Transportation GIS"

    SBC: Gis/trans, Ltd            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1996 Department of Transportation
  5. Response-Based Parameter Estimation for Determining Unknown Bridge Foundations

    SBC: Infrasense, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evaluation of bridges for vulnerability to scour or other potential sources of damage requires knowledge of foundation conditions beneath piers and abutments that are often unknown. INFRASENSE proposed to develop and demonstrate a response-based parameter estimation method (RPEM) which will address the need for a simple, low-cost system for unknown foundation evaluation. The RPEM system is based ...

  6. MWM-Array Characterization of Widespread Fatigue Damage Onset

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will investigate the potential of an enhanced version of the Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM), called the MWM-Array, to characterize and predict remaining life for components experiencing widespread fatigue damage. The MWM has already demonstrated the potential to characterize fatigue damage in metals priod to the formation of cracks, as well as the ability to detect and charac ...

  7. Automated Production of Composite Energy Absorbing Utility Poles

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites, Kaman Sciences and Dr. Malcolm Ray of the University of Iowa propose to investigate the design of energy absorbing utility poles made from composite materials. This team has considerable experience in the multiple technologies needed to successfully complete the proposed program, including design of high performance composite products for automated production and design, analysi ...

  8. Monolithic Fully Integrated Optic Inertial Navigation System

    SBC: Optisensors Inc            Topic: N/A

    The GPS is an affordable and accurate means of guiding military and civilian aircraft. However, at times the GPS signal becomes blocked or degraded due to loss of satellite lock or poor viewing angle. It is necessary to back it up with inertial navigation. However, there is no INS system which is accurate enough and inexpensive enough to do the job. A completely monolithic fully integrated INS ...

  9. HTSC SUPERCONDUCTING SHIELDS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF SHIELDING LARGE AREAS OF THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT FROM THE RESIDUAL MAGNETIC FIELD EMANATING FROM THE DRIVE AND LEVITATION MAGNETS IS ADDRESSED USING AN ACTIVE/PASSIVE HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING SHIELD. THE LARGE AREA SHIELDS REQUIRED BY MAGLEV AND THE RESIDUAL FIELD LEVEL MAKE PASSIVE SHIELDING PROHIBITIVE. ACTIVE SHIELDING WITH AN ARRAY OF WATER COPPER CANCELLATION COILS WI ...

    SBIR Phase I 1992 Department of Transportation
  10. A Novel Sensor & Diagnostic System for High Speed Composite Flywheels

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

    This proposal describes the development of a novel inductive/dielectric sensor-based composite flywheel diagnostic system for high rotational speed applications such as locomotive drivetrain energy storage. The proposed diagnostic system will combine composite flywheel strength and fatigue models developed by SatCon Technology Corp. with innovative sensor and data processing technology developed ...
