  2. BRL-CAD BASED LUGGAGE SIMULATION TOOL

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MODELING ANBD SIMULATIONS ARE USED EXTENSIVELY IN THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF "BULK" EXPLOSIVES DETECTION DEVICES. HOWEVER, OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF THE INPUT MODEL, NAMELY LUGGAGE AND EXPLOSIVE CONTENTS, CAN LEAD TO POOR DETECTOR DESIGNS. MANUAL PRODUCTION OF SUCH INPUT IS COSTLY AND ERROR PRONE. THIS EFFORT WILL AUTOMATE THE PRODUCTION OF SIMULATED LUGGAGE THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER TOOL. ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF ANGULAR ACCELEROMETER

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH EFFORT COMPLETED RECENTLY FOR THE AIR FORCE IDENTIFIED NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR ANGULAR MOTION MEASUREMENT. TWO CONCEPTS WERE FOUND WHICH APPEAR TO OFFER POTENTIAL FOR AN EXCELLENT COMBINATION OF SMALL SIZE, WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE, WIDE BANDWIDTH AND EASE OF FABRICATION AND UTILIZATION. ONE DEVICE, CALLED A FLUID-FILLED BENDER BEAM, USES PIEZOCERAMICELEMENTS TO PRODUCE A SIGNAL PROPORTIONAL TO ...

  4. MEASURING LIVE LOAD STRESSES ON BRIDGES

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (DOT) IS REQUIRED TO MAIN- TAIN THE NATION'S BRIDGES AND ENSURE THEIR SAFETY. HOWEVER,A LARGE NUMBER OF BRIDGES HAVE NOT BEEN RECENTLY INSPECTED TO DETERMINE IF THEY ARE CAPABLE OF SAFELY SUPPORTING THE TRAFFIC THAT IS CROSSING THEM. THE CURRENT METHOD OF SURVEYING BRIDGES, TO DETERMINE THEIR STRESS CONDITION, IS COSTLY AND TIME-CONSUMING. THIS PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP ...

  5. LONGITUDINAL STRESS (FORCE) MEASUREMENT OF RAIL UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Magnasonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN 1982, A SPECIAL COMMITTEE OF THE NMAB ISSUED A REPORT ON THE NONDESTRUCTIVE METHODS THAT MIGHT BE USED TO MEASURE THELOGITUDINAL FORCE IN INSTALLED RAILS. IT SHOWED THAT THE ACOUSTO-ELASTIC EFFECT WHICH INFERS THE STRESS FROM MEASURE MENTS OF SMALL SHIFTS IN THE VELOCITY OF SOUND WAS PROMISINGBUT DIFFICULT TO IMPLEMENT BECAUSE VARIATIONS IN THE METALLURGICAL STRUCTURE OF THE METAL AND UNCERTAIN ...

  6. Collection of Motorcycle Exposure and Crash Factor Data

    SBC: Autonomous Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous Innovations Inc. (AII) proposes to develop a novel comprehensive monitoring system for motorcycles that will monitor vehicle miles traveled (VMT), as well as a varity of physical measurements, to understand the exposure and factors in the increased numbers of accidents among motorcycles riders. All has extensive experience in developing and integrating sensors and data-logging for a va ...

  7. Video Detection and Image Processing Systems for Traffic Law Enforcement

    SBC: DIGITAL TRAFFIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Digital Traffic Systems, Inc. has previously developed and sells commercially an Intelligent Camera System that interprets video images of the road traffic and computes traffic parameters including: Queue Length (Vehicle count), Flow Speed (miles per hour), Density (vehicles per mile), volume (vehicles per hour), Lane Occupancy (percent of lance occupied) and Headway (average distance| feet betwe ...

  8. A Neural Network-based System for Automated Detection of Wire Insulation Chafing from TDR/FDR Data

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to develop an automated system for identification and characterization of chafing in the aircraft wiring. Chafing degrades wiring integrity and can lead to shorts and/or damaged data pathways. Shorts have been associated with deadly in-flight fires. Damaged data pathways have caused engine shutdowns, loss of control, and other safety hazards. Currently recognizing and measurin ...

  10. RESTRICTED VISIBILITY WARNING SYSTEM

    SBC: Ecotek International            Topic: N/A

    ECOTEK INTERNATIONAL PROPOSES AN ALL SOLID-STATE VISIBILITY MONITORING SYSETM THAT WILL BE USED TO MONITOR VISIBILITY CONDITIONS ALONG ROADWAYS AND WARN TRAVELERS OF LOW VISIBILITY CONDITIONS. THE PURPOSE OF THE SYSTEM IS TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MULTIPLE-VEHICLE COLLISIONS AND CONSEQUENT FATALITIES, INJURIES, AND PROPERTY DAMAGES. THE SYSTEM IS BASED ON AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO A WELL-ESTABLISHED ...
