  1. UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT.

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT. THESE STANDARDS ARE SET TO AVOID A LANDING ENCOUNTER WITH A VORTEX WAKE. IF AN ONBOARD VORTEX SENSOR AN ESCAPE SYSTEM COULD BE DEVELOPED WHICH IS BOTH RELIABLE AND INEXPENSIVE, THE A AVIATION COMMUNITY COULD BENEFIT BY DECREASED TERMINAL DELAYS WITHOUT COMPROMISING SAFETY. THE CONCEPT TO BE ST ...

  4. DIRECT MONITORING OF APPROACH LIGHTING LAMPS USING POWER LINE COMMUNICATIONS.

    SBC: ELECTRO-RADIATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE 1 PROJECT INVESTIGATES WHETHER RECENT ADVANCES IN OPTICAL AND THERMAL DETECTORS, AND FIBER-OPTICS CAN BE APPLIED TO MONITOR INDIVIDUAL LAMPS IN AIRPORT APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS. PHASE 1 CONCENTRATES THE TECHNICAL EFFORT ON RESEARCH TO MATCH LAMP AND SENSOR CHARACTERISTICS, A DEFINITION OF THE LAMP NETWORK LINE IMPDEANCE AND NOISE MODELS, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF APPROPRIATE SERIES POWER-L ...

  5. "Comparison of Moire Deflectometry and Projection Moire Techniques for Remote Sensing of Fatigue Cracks"

    SBC: Gaea Technologies            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1995 Department of Transportation
  6. SIMULATION MODEL OF AIRCRAFT EVACUATION PROCESS

    SBC: Gourary Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING A PERSONAL COMPUTER MODEL OF THEEVACUATION PROCESS WILL BE STUDIED, USING AN EXPERIMENTAL MODEL DEVELOPED BY GOURARY ASSOCIATES INC. THE RESULTING MODEL WILL PERMIT THE STUDY AND VISUALIZATION OF PASSENGER MOVEMENTS DURING EVACUATION. IT WILL ALSO ALLOW THE STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF CROWDING, FIRE, OBSTRUCTIONS, AND OTHER EFFECTS DURING THE EVACUATION PROCESS. THE MODEL W ...

  7. ICING MONITORING EQUIPMENT

    SBC: JONAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1984 Department of Transportation
  8. Equipment and Facilities for Rapid Installation of Buried Innerduct Network for Utility Lines

    SBC: Outside Plant Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of the universal placement of telecommunications and power supply lines below ground, as an alternative to their typically low-cost installation on utility poles, depends upon the availability of a cost-effective convenient method for placing and replacing cables belowground. A network of underground conduits constructed of field-assembled rigid sections, including straight segmen ...

    SBIR Phase I 2004 Department of Transportation
  9. CORROSION DETECTION IN AGING AIRCRAFT

    SBC: PHYSICAL ACOUSTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCEPT FOR THE DETECTION OF CORROSION IN AGING AIRCRAFT USING ACOUSTIC EMISSION MONITORING IS PROPOSED. CORROSION WILL BE LOCATED THROUGH THE EFFECT THAT IT HAS ON AIRFRAME STRENGTH (10% THINNING RESULTS IN 50% FATIGUE LIFE REDUCTION). ACOUSTIC EMISSION TECHNOLOGY USED ON THE F-111 FIGHTER/BOMBER WILL BE ADAPTED FOR USE ON COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT. PRELIMINARY CONCEPT TESTING ON A BOEING 720B HAS RE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Department of Transportation
  10. ADVANCED ACOUSTIC EMISSION TECHNIQUES FOR TANK CAR WELD INSPECTION

    SBC: PHYSICAL ACOUSTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ACOUSTIC EMISSION CAN DETECT FLAWS IN TANK CARS WITHOUT REMOVAL OF LINING OR INSULATION. THIS RELATIVELY NEW METHOD HAS ALREADY BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY ON ABOUT 10,000 CARS. HOWEVER, THERE HAVE BEEN SOME SHORTCOMINGS IN THE AREAS OF RELIABILITY AND INTERPRETATON. THIS PROJECT WILL ADDRESS AND CORRECT THESE SHORTCOMINGS WITH NEW RESEARCH AND REFINED TECHNIQUES FOR THE AE TEST. THE FIRST AREA OF RESE ...
