  1. ENHANCED SIMULATOR TRAINING PROGRAM FOR OPERATORS AT MULTI-UNIT PLANTS.

    SBC: Corpe Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AT MULTI-UNIT NUCLEAR GENRATING STATIONS, CONTROL ROOM OPERATORS ARE GENERALLY LICENSED TO OPERATE ALL SIMILAR UNITS. SIMULATOR TRAINING CONDUCTED AT THE LICENSEE TRAINING FACILITY OCCURS ON ONE SIMULATOR WHICH MAY NOT EXACTLY MIMIC ANY UNIT. INADEQUATE TRAINING ON UNIT-TO-UNIT AND UNIT-TO-SIMULATOR DIFFERENCES, IN CONJUNCTION WITH LIMITED PER-PERSON SIMULATOR TRAINING HOURS, CAN RESULT IN INCREAS ...

  2. ROBUST, ACCURATE, NON-CONTACTING VIBRATION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: EPOCH ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WHEN ROTATING MACHINERY DETERIORATES, VIBRTION PATTERSN CHANGE. WHEN BEARING FREQUENCIES APPEAR, THEN INCREASE IN AMPLITUDE, BEARING FAILURE LOOMS. THE SAME WITH VALVES; WHEN THEY LEAK, THEY VIBRATE. AS LEAKAGE INCREASES, THE VIBRATION PATTERN CHANGES. THERE ARE MANY OTHERS. THE KEY IS KNOWING WHERE AND HOW DEEPLY TO LOOK. THE KEY IN OLDER REACTOR PLANTS IS TO UNOBTRUSIVELY, ECONOMICALLY BACKFIT S ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED TECHNIQUES FOR DYNAMIC PRA

    SBC: Frh, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CHANGES IN PLANT STATUS, EITHER BEFORE OR DURING AN ACCIDENT SEQUENC CAN CONSIDERABLY AFFECT ITS OUTCOME; BOTH THE ACTURAL OUTCOME AND THAT PREDICTED BY PROBABILISTIC RISK ASSESSMENT. IN ORDER TO ACCURATELY REPRESENT THE POSSIBLE ACCIDENTS AND THEIR PROBABILITIES, THE PRA MODEL MUST CONSIDER THE DYNAMIC CHARACTER OF THE PLANT, IT'S SYSTEMS AND OPERATORS. A LIVING, DYNAMIC PRA IS ONE IN WHICH ALL T ...

  4. Advanced High Temperature Dielectric Material

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: BMDO00014

    Active Signal Technologies and Alfred University have brought together a broad-based industrial consortium to rapidly advance the development and commercialization of bismuth sodium titanate (BNT), a novel high performance capacitor material for use in both high-temperature and high-field applications. While the dielectric properties of our Phase I BNT show great promise, this is a new-comer to t ...

  5. Pulse width modulated servo valve enabled by single crystal piezoelectric

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB032033

    Active Signal Technologies and Moog propose to demonstrate a solid state pulse width modulated pilot stage for a servo valve enabled by single crystal PMN-PT. The basic mechanism and labor intensive fabrication processes used to build conventional servo valves remain largely unchanged since the device was launched in 1951, resulting in high cost and limited bandwidth. A digitally controlled valv ...

  6. Compact Variable Depth Sonar (CVDS)

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04070

    The current tested and proven LBVDS system is limited in the platforms that can host it due to the large volume and weight requirements of the system. Active Signal Technologies proposes to retain the high power density features of the system, but modify it to retain as much performance as feasible in a much smaller package. To achieve this, we will perform a rigorous study of materials, transdu ...

  7. Environmental Mission Planner- The Total Solution

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N02152

    The objective of this research is to develop alternatives for a total planning system solution for use of environmental sensor data for the tactical ASW warfighter. This software will be used for pre-flight planning to evaluate alternatives and develop effective tactical search plans based on available environmental data and threat data, to provide recommendations for additional insitu environm ...

  8. Environmental Sensor Simulation System

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N02182

    The objectives of this research are to design and develop a software prototype of a realistic ocean simulation system primarily to support development of environmental sensors through more precise evaluation of sensor design alternatives. This simulation system, the Environmental Sensor Simulation System (ESSS), must accurately represent the ocean''s spatial, azimuthal and temporal dependencies. ...

  9. Robust Towed Array Beamforming

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N03146

    In Phase I Robust Towed Array Beamforming (RTAB) work, Applied Hydro-Acoustics Research, Inc. (AHA) developed and tested several candidate algorithms, including a data-adaptive "Hole-Filling" algorithm, that recover losses of acoustic performance resulting from acoustic channels failures. With SURTASS TwinLine-R sea-test data we have shown a 2 to 3 dB improvement in quiet beam levels by "hole-fill ...

  10. Surface Ship, Hull Mounted, Mine Avoidance Sonar

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N04071

    Reducing reverberation noise, and increasing resolution drive the ability to detect, and classify underwater mines in a shallow littoral environment. This proposal addresses the problem with an analysis of reverberation noise from recorded sea tests, adaptive beamforming (ABF), and adaptive direction of arrival estimation (ADOA). In the reverberation noise analysis phase, the primary focus will be ...
