  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. ADVANCED MATERIAL CONCEPTS FOR GUARDRAIL END TREATMENTS

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    GUARDRAIL TERMINALS ARE SOME OF THE MORE TROUBLESOME AND POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS ROADSIDE APPURTENANCES. RECENTLY DEVELOPED TERMINAL CONCEPTS WHICH HAVE PASSED CURRENT CRASH TEST CRITERIA TEND TO BE EXPENSIVE AND MAY REQUIRE EXCESSIVE LENGTH OF NEED, FLARE-OUT SPACE AND ADDITIONAL FILL AND GRADING. THIS PHASE I SBIR PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MORE EFFICIENT ENERGY ABSORBING TERMINAL CON ...

  7. X-RAY DAMAGE THRESHOLD FOR FILM AND MAGNETIC RECORDING MEDIA

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION NEEDS STATISTICAL DATA ON THE X-RAY DAMAGE THRESHOLD OF PHOTOGRAPHIC FILM AND MAGNETIC MEDIA TO PREDICT POSSIBLE DAMAGING EFFECT OF HIGHER POWERED X-RAY FACILITIES BEING CONSIDERED AS PART OF INCREASED AIRPORT SECURITY. TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATES, INC. (TDA) PROPOSES AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM TO STATISTICALLY EVALUATE DAMAGE THRESHOLDS. X-RAY TRANSPORT ANAL ...

  8. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 1994 Department of Transportation
  9. BIOSENSORS FOR AIRCRAFT SMOKE DETECTION

    SBC: Udt Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    UDT SENSORS, INC. PROPOSES A NOVEL TECHNIQUE OF MONITORING AND DETECTING LOW LEVELS OF VARIOUS GASEOUS COMPONENTS OF FIRE MY MID INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY, IN THE REGION OF 3 TO 20 MICRON. THE FIRE DETECTOR CONSISTS OF A STABLE INFRARED SOURCE, AND NARROW BAND THERMOPILE DETECTORS TUNED FOR GASEOUS BY PRODUCTS OF COMBUSTION, UNIQUE TO AIRCRAFT FIRES. SUCH THERMOPILE DETECTORS ARE CAPABLE OF IDENTIFYIN ...

  10. ADVANCED MATERIALS FOR AUTOMOBILE AIRBAG SYSTEMS

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: N/A

    THE INTRODUCTION OF NON-AZIDE GENERANTS FOR AUTOMOBILE AIRBAG SYSTEMS PRESENTS NEW CHALLENGES IN THE USE OF MATERIALS FOR INTERNAL AIRBAG COMPONENTS SUCH AS PRIMARY AND SLAG FILTERS. BECAUSE NON-AZIDES ARE MUCH HOTTER (2130 DEGREES CENTIGRADE VS. 1090 DEGREES CENTIGRADE) AND CONTAIN MORE METALLIC OXIDES THAN AZIDES, CURRENT MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR USE WITH THESE GENERANTS. U ...
