  1. A TUNABLE, MONOCHROMATIC X-RAY GENERATOR FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION

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

    PARAMETRIC X-RADIATION (PXR) IS PROPOSED AS AN INTENSE, TUNABLE, MONOCHROMATIC HARD-X-RAY SOURCE FOR THE DETECTION OF EXPLOSIVES. THIS RADIATION IS HIGHLY COLLIMATED, HAS A BANDWIDTH OF 0.1, AND AN INTENSITY EQUAL TO THAT OF SYNCHROTRON RADIATION ON A PER ELECTRON BASIS. PXR GENERATION IS ACHIEVED BY PLACING CRYSTALS INTO THE PATH OF ELECTRON BEAMS WITH ENERGY OF 6 MEV OR GREATER. THE VIRTUAL PHOT ...

  2. "MAGLEV OPTICAL DETECTION OF OBSTACLES (MODO)"

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE REALIZATION OF SAFE, HIGH-SPEED MAGLEV OR STEEL WHEEL GROUND TRANSPORTATION WILL REQUIRE A RELIABLE SYSTEM TO DETECT OBSTACLES IN THE GUIDEWAY AT A CONSIDERABLE DISTANCE. REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE ALL-WEATHER OPERATION, DAY TIME AND NIGHT TIME OPERATION, AND THE DETECTION OF OBSTACLES AROUND THE GUIDEWAY CURVE (NOT IN LINE OF SIGHT). IN ADDITION THE SYSTEM MUST BE SAFE FOR PASSENGERS ON THE TRAIN, ...

  3. HYBRID METHOD FOR ASSESSMENT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL PROFICIENCY MAINTENANCE.

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO IDENTIFY THE EFFECT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL ON REGAINING AND MAINTAINING FLYING SKILLS. BY COGNITIVE REHEARSAL (CR) WE MEAN ACTIVITIES PERFORMED BY THE FAA INSPECTOR DURING FLIGHT PROFICIENCY CHECKS SUCH AS CHECKLIST VERIFICATION, VERIFICATION OF ABNORMAL PROCEDURE EXECUTION, AND THE LIKE. PRECISE DATA ABOUT THE TYPES OF SKILLS MAINTAINED VIA CR, THE RATE OF DECAY OF THE SKILLS NOT MA ...

  4. AEROSOL CONCENTRATION BY SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATOR

    SBC: David Gordon Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FAA AVIATION SECURITY HAS EXPRESSED A NEED FOR TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE INCREASED SENSITIVITY/RESPONSE TO AIRBORNE FORMS OF EXPLOSIVES. THE TECHNOLOGIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATION (SCAEP) HAVE CAPABILITIES IN CONCENTRATING THE CONTAMINANTS IN LARGE VOLUMES OF AIR INTO SMALL VOLUMES OF LIQUID WITH INCREASED DETECTION CAPABILITY. AN R & D PROGRAM TO DEFINE CAPT ...

  5. HIGH-SPEED SWITCHES FOR MAGLEV VEHICLES

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP SWITCHES CAPABLE OF RAPID OPERATION AT MAXIMUM VEHICLE SPEEDS FOR MAGLEV SYSTEMS WITH DIFFICULT TOPOLOGIES. MAGLEV SYSTEMS REQUIRE SWITCHES CAPABLE OF ENABLING ENTRY AND EXIT FROM THE MAIN GUIDEWAY AT HIGH SPEED (UP TO 134 M/S) I ORDER TO MAINTAIN GUIDEWAY CAPACITY. SOME VEHICLE/GUIDEWAY CONFIGURATIONS ARE NOT WELL SUITED TO IMPLEMENTING A HIGH SPEED SWI ...

  6. SELF-REINFORCED POLYMERS FOR AIRCRAFT CABIN INTERIORS

    SBC: Maxdem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POLY-X(TM) RESINS, A NEW CLASS OF RIGID-ROD THERMPLASTICS WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR POTENTIAL USE IN AIRCRAFT CABIN INTERIORS. THE POLY-X(TM) POLYMERS ARE THE STIFFEST KNOWN THERMOPLASTICS WITH TENSILE MODULI OF 10 GPA. BECAUSE OF THEIR HIGH STIFFNESS AND STRENGTH IT IS PROPOSED THAT THEY MAY MAKE POSSIBLE LIGHTER STRUCTURES FOR AIRCRAFT INTERIORS. IT IS ALSO EXPECTED THAT THESE NEW RESINS WILL HAV ...

  7. A MEMBRANE CONCENTRATOR FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A VAPOR DETECTION SYSTEM ABLE TO ANALYZE ORGANIC VAPORS AT VERY LOW CONCENTRATIONS WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO SCREEN AIR TRAVEL PASSENGERS AND THEIR BAGGAGE FOR EXPLOSIVES. THE LEVEL OF SENSITIVITY REQUIRED FOR THE DETECTOR IS BETWEEN 1 AND 100 X 10-15 G OF THE MATERIAL OF CONCERN. CURRENT DETECTORS WITH THIS SENSITIVITY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR USE AT AIRPORT GATES. THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS ...

    SBIR Phase II 1994 Department of Transportation
  8. FIBER OPTIC BASED SENSOR SYSTEMS FOR TURBINE ENGINES

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTRA PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN INNOVATIVE SET OF FIBER OPTIC SENSORS SUITABLE FOR USE IN MONITORING COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES. THE SENSOR SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE A COMMON ELECTRO-OPTIC TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER/SIGNAL PROCESSOR (EO MODULE) AND FIBER OPTIC LINK. THREE DIFFERENT SENSOR HEADS WILL BE DEMONSTRATED WHICH WILL MEASURE ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT/PRESSURE, VIBRATION, AND TEMPERATURE. THE SENSOR ...

  10. SELF LOCATING, EXPENDABLE, AIR-DEPLOYABLE COAST GUARD SURFACE DRIFTER ("SEACS") BUOY

    SBC: Torrey Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    IN ORDER TO PLAN AN EFFECTIVE SEARCH, COAST GUARD PLANNERS NEED TO COLLECT TRUE SURFACE CURRENT AND OCEANOGRAPHIC DATA,GET THAT DATA TO THE SEARCH PLANNERS IN A TIMELY FASHION, AND PROVIDE THE CURRENT SEARCH PLAN TO THE OPERATIONAL SEARCH ELEMENTS. DERIVED FROM THE STANDARD CODE DRIFTER, THE SELF-LOCATING EXPENDABLE, AIR DEPLOYABLE COAST GUARD SURFACE DRIFTER ("SEACS") BUOY WILL PROVIDE WORLDWIDE ...
