  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. DEVELOPMENT OF SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE (SAW) ALTITUDE SENSOR

    SBC: Amerasia Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A CONSTANT NEED FOR LESS COSTLY AIRCRAFT ALTITUDE SENSORS, FOR WHICH LARGE NUMBERS OF THESE SENSORS ARE REQUIRED. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO PERFORM STUDIES LEADING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE (SAW) ALTITUDE SENSOR FOR AVIONICS AIR-DATA INSTRUMENTATION. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A HIGH PERFORMANCE ALTITUDE SENSOR WHICH WILL UTILIZE STATE-OF-THE ...

  5. Motor Vehical Crash Costing Technology

    SBC: ARCCA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    With the advent of widely available PC technology, crash safety information can be cost-effectively disseminated to millions of people in an engaging and educational way. With an enticing and informative PC application, data about damages, costs, injuries and death can be personalized and grasped by anyone, particularily young drivers developing new driving behaviors. ARCCA's proposed system wil ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. COAL LOCOMOTIVE PROPOSAL NO. 7300-912

    SBC: Brobeck Corp.            Topic: N/A

    COAL IS AN ATTRACTIVE FUEL FOR RAILROAD LOCOMOTIVES BECAUSE OF ITS DOMESTIC ABUNDANCE AND LOW COST PER UNIT OF HEAT. ONE RESTRAINT IN COAL AS A LOCOMOTIVE FUEL IS ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION. CONSIDERING THESE CONFLICTING CONDITIONS OF ATTRACTIVENESS AND DIFFICULTY IN USING COAL AS A FUEL, IT BECOMES QUITE IMPORTANT HOW THE COAL IS HANDLED AND CONVERTED TO HEAT FOR LOCOMOTIVE POWER. A STUDY OF HEAT EN ...

  8. FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL.

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL. MOST DIESEL OPERATORS NOW CONSIDER PERIODIC OIL ANALYSES AS THEIR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN MAINTAINING EQUIPMENT; THIS METHOD IS BOTH EXPENSIVE AND OFTEN INCONVIENT. THIS RESEARCH EXPLORES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION OF ...

  9. Highway Capacity Software in Portable Graphical User Interface (GUI) Format

    SBC: Catalina Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) has, for the past 10 years, been the principal tool for applying the analysis methods of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM). The HCS has been DOS-based with a very limited user interface. With a number of new research materials being produced, and an approved plan in place which leads to publication of an HCM 2000 and accompanying software, there is a strong op ...

  10. SMOKE EMITTING INTERIOR MATERIALS FOR TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

    SBC: Chem-tronics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP RIGID SYNTOCTIC POLYIMIDE FOAM PANELS POSSESSING FLAME RESISTANCE, NO-SMOKE EMISSION AND LOW THERMAL CONDUCTANCE FOR REPLACING INTERIOR MATERIALS OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES NOW DESIGNATED AS POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS. AT LEAST FOUR CANDIDATE MATERIALS WILL BE PREPARED AND TESTED TO SELECT THE MOST PROMISING CANDIDATE FOR SCALE-UP IN A PHASE II PROGRAM.
