  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 ...

  4. VEHICLE AXLE DETECTOR BASED ON NON-CONTACT DETECTION

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PACIFIC-SIERRA RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SENSOR MODULE FOR COUNTING VEHICLE AXLES ON ROADWAYS. THIS SENSOR WOULD NOT REQUIRE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THE ROADBED, AND COULD BE SAFELY SETUP WITHOUT IMPEDING TRAFFIC EVEN TEMPORARILY. THE SENSOR WILL DETECT THE AXLES ON MULTIPLE LANE HIGHWAYS AND KEEP THE SEPARATE LANE COUNTS DISTINCT. THIS ROADWAY LAND AXLE DETECTOR (LAD) IS BASED ON EXISTING ...

  5. Optics for Focal Plane Photochromic Anti-glare Device

    SBC: Quantic Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anti-glare visors and rearview mirrors for cars can be constructed by inserting a photochromic layer in the focal plane of an optical system. Rays from intense glare souces are focused and create dark spots on the photochromic layer and thus self attenuate. Rays from dim objects are left unaffected. The optics can be achieved with either conventional lenses or microlens arrays. Anti-glare devi ...

  6. 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. Transportation Planning Uses of Commercial Data

    SBC: Systan, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Transportation planning currently relies on extensive and expensive household surveys, which are so costly that they are rarely conducted more than once every ten years and are often out-of-data within a year or two. Research is proposed that would test the feasibility of supplementing or supplanting these surveys with commercial data bases. To accomplish this, existing data sources will be revi ...

  9. AN ADVANCED LASER-BASED TRACKING DEVICE FOR MOTOR VEHICLE LANE POSITION MONITORING AND STEERING ASSISTANCE

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED DEVICE ALLOWS THE DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION ANDTRACKING OF ALL TYPES OF EXISTING ROADWAY PAVEMENT DELINEATORS. THE INFORMATION WILL PROVIDE LATERAL POSITION SENSING. THE CONCEPT OF ROADWAY LANE POSITIONING IS NOT NEW, BUT RECENT IMPROVEMENTS IN DIODE LASERS AND SOLID STATEDETECTORS PROVIDE THE MEANS TO FINALLY IMPLEMENT A WORKABLE SENSOR. THE PROPOSED OPTICAL SENSOR WILL BE COMPACT, I ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF LOW POWER DIGITAL COMMUNICATION (LPDC) SYSTEM

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

    AN INNOVATIVE LOW POWER DIGITAL COMMUNICATION (LPDC) SYSTEM IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL ENCODE RAW DATA FROM THE SELF POWEREDVEHICLE DETECTORS (SPVD) SENSORS AND SEND ENCODED DATA TO THE RECEIVED BASE STATION VIA THE LPDC DEVICES. THE PROPOSED ENCODING ALGORITHM WILL ALLOW THE LPDC TO OPERATE RELIABLY IN THE PRESENCE OF INTERFERENCE FROM OTHER COMMUNICATION USERS. PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT BY UTI ...
