  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. DYNAMIC GPS ATTITUDE DETERMINING SYSTEM FOR MARINE APPLICATIONS

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

    A 3-DIMENSIONAL ATTITUDE SENSOR WHICH USES GPS CARRIER PHASEINTERFEROMETRY IS PROPOSED FOR ANALYSIS AND CONCEPT TESTING IN PHASE I, AND PROTOTYPING IN PHASE II. THE RESULTING SENSOR WILL BE ACCURATE AT ANY LATITUDE. ADROIT SYSTEMS PROPOSES TO ENHANCE ITS SUCCESSFUL 2-DIMENSIONAL, STATIC GPSATTITUDE DETERMINING SYSTEM (ADS) SO THAT IT WILL OPERATE UNDER DYNAMIC CONDITIONS WHILE MEASURING 3-DIMENSIO ...

  3. AN INNOVATIVE OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM FOR HIGH SPEED GUIDED GROUND TRANSPORTATION

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

    AN INNOVATIVE OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM BASED ON A RAIL-GUIDED PROPELLER-DRIVEN POD CONTAINING A MICROWAVE RADAR SENSOR IS PROPOSED. THE SENSOR POD WILL TRAVEL A FEW MILES AHEAD OF THE HIGH SPEED TRAIN OR MAGLEV VEHICLE, DETECT POTENTIAL OBSTACLES, AND ENACT AN APPROPRIATE WARNING OR AVOIDANCE PROCEDURE. THE PROPOSED OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM HAS MANY HIGHLY DESIRABLE FEATURES INCLUDING: A VERY LO ...

  5. OPTICAL POLARIZATION BASED TAMPER-PROOF DRIVER'S LICENSE AND IDENTIFICATION CARDS

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF FALSE DRIVER'S LICENSES AND OTHER IDENTIFICATION CARDS TO OBTAIN ALCOHOL BY UNDER- AGE DRIVERS AND BY REPEAT OFFENDERS WITH SUSPENDED LICENSES IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY SUCH DRIVERS ARE MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS TO FATALITIES, INJURIES AND PROPERTY DAMAGE. THEDEVELOPMENT OF TAMPER-PROOF DRIVERS' LICENSES AND IDENTIFICATION CARDS WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THIS PROBLEM. DUE TO HI ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. COMMERCIAL SPACE LAUNCH FREQUENCY REQUIRMENTS

    SBC: Berner, Lanphier & Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY COMMERCIAL SPACE-LAUNCH FREQUENCY REQUIREMENTS ARE MET IN THE 2200- TO 2300-MHZ BAND. NEW FREQUENCY ALLOCATIONS MAY LIMIT FREQUENCIES FOR COMMERCIAL SAFE AND RELIABLE COMMERCIAL SPACE-LAUNCH OPERATIONS TO THREE CHANNELS IN THE 2360- TO 2390-MHZ BAND. THIS RESEARCH WILL ASSESS WHETHER THIS ALLOCATION IS SUFFICIENT TO ENSURE CONTINUED SAFE AND RELIABLE COMMERCIAL SPACE-LAUNCH OPERATIONS. D ...
