  1. 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 ...

  2. 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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Advanced Concept Basalt Fiber Reinforcement for Concrete

    SBC: Research & Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    Extensive research (Ukraine) has shown that high strength continuous fibers of basalt can be produced. These fibers are inexpensive and have exceptionally high strength, stiffness and corrosion resistance. Basalt is a naturally occurring volcanic mineral, consisting a variety concentration of oxides. The product envisioned is a low-cost, corrosion resistant replacement for steel bar in reinforc ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. TRANSIT INFORMATION DECISION SUPPORT ENVIRONMENT REQUIREMENTS STUDY

    SBC: Viggen Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF POWERFUL GIS AND DECISION SUPPORT TOOLS WILL AID TRANSIT PROFESSIONALS IN PROVIDING BETTER SERVICES AND MAKING INFORMED DECISIONS. HOWEVER, THE LACK OF INTEGRATION BETWEEN MULTIPLE DATA SOURCES AND TRANSIT SOFTWARE TOOLS WITH GIS PREVENTS TRANSIT FROM FULLY DEMONSTRATING THE SYNERGY THAT IS ACHIEVABLE BY GIS AND FURTHER DELAYS ADOPTION AND WIDE-SPREAD USE OF GIS IN TRANSIT AGENCIES. THE ...
