  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. US FLAG COASTAL RO/RO SHIPS; APPLICATION OF CASSETTE TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Advanced Marine Enterprises,            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL EVALUATE THE RANGE OF SHIP SIZES AND POWER LEVELS (SPEEDS) TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM SHIP CHARACTERISTICS FOR OPERATING U.S. FLAG RO/RO SHIPS IN U.S. COASTAL SERVICE. RO/RO CARGO HANDLING TECHNIQUES PREVALENT IN EUROPE AND SCANDINAVIA WILL BE INCORPORATED AS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE SERIES OF SHIPS INVESTIGATED. THESE TECHNIQUES INVOLVE THE USE OF CASSETTES TO HANDLE CONTAINERS ...

  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. ACOUSTIC DETECTION OF AXLES

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING ACOUSTIC RADIATION FROM VEHICLE TIRES TO PROVIDE A LOW COST, EASY TO DEPLOY, UNOBTRUSIVE, RELAIBLE REPLACEMENT FOR THE CURRENT METHOD OF COLLECTING VEHICLE AXLE PASSAGE DATA. THE PROPOSED METHOD WILL CROSS-CORRELATE THE TIRE NOISE RECEIVED AT SPATIALLY SEPARATED MICROPHONES TO LOCATE AXLE CROSSINGS. THE PROCESSING ...

  7. LASER BASED REAL-TIME POSITIONING SYSTEM

    SBC: Spatial Positioning Systems            Topic: N/A

    SPATIAL POSITIONING SYSTEMS INC. (SPSI) PROPOSES TO RESEARCH AND DEVELOP A SELF-CALIBRATING THREE DIMENSIONAL LASER-BASED POSITIONING SYSTEM FOR INTEGRATED USE IN A RIVER BOTTOM MAPPING SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE REAL-TIME 3-D POSITIONING OF A BOAT TO AN ACCURACY OF 100 MM IN THE VERTICAL AND 1 M IN THE HORIZONTAL. THE UPDATE RATE IS EXPECTED TO BE 50HZ AND THE RANGE 300 ME ...

  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 ...
