  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. DIFFERENTIALLY DRIVEN GENERATORS (DDG)

    SBC: Transmission Technology Co Inc            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONALLY, SHIPBOARD POWER GENERATION IS ACCOMPLISHED VIA AUXILIARY ENGINES AND GENERATOR SETS. SIGNIFICANT COST ADVANTAGES CAN BE PROJECTED IF THIS ELECTRICAL DEMAND COULD BE MET BY EXTRACTING POWER FROM THE SHIP'S PRIME MOVER. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, AND TO MAINTAIN A CONSTANT FREQUENCY ON THEGENERATOR WHILE THE SPEED OF THE PRIME MOVER VARIES OVER A WIDE RANGE, THIS CONTRACTOR PROPOSES THE USE ...

  4. OPERATIONS

    SBC: Transmission Technology Co Inc            Topic: N/A

    COST OF CARGO HANDLING OPERATIONS CAN BE REDUCED BY EQUIPMENT THAT USES LESS TIME AND ENERGY TO PERFORM AND RANDREQUIRES LESS MANPOWER TO OPERATE, MONITOR, AND MAINTAIN. ONE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO EVOLVE A PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF A REPRESENTATIVE PIECE OF MACHINERY, NAMELY A MOORING/WARPING AUTOMATIC TENSIONING WINCH USING ADVANCED ELECTRO-MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY, ELIMINATING HYDRAULICS AND ...

  5. WITH THE GROWING COST OF TRACK MAINTENANCE FOR HEAVY AND LIGHT RAIL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS, THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE MAINTENANCE PLANNING AND FORECASTING OF MAINTENANCE REQ UIREMENTS HAS BECOME MORE READILY APPARENT.

    SBC: Zeta-Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE GROWING COST OF TRACK MAINTENANCE FOR HEAVY AND LIGHT RAIL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS, THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE MAINTENANCE PLANNING AND FORECASTING OF MAINTENANCE REQ UIREMENTS HAS BECOME MORE READILY APPARENT. THIS IN TURN LEADS TO THE REQUIREMENT FOR AN INTEGRATED TRACK MAINTENANCEFORECASTING AND PLANNING SYSTEM THAT WILL ENABLE TRACK MAIN TENANCE SUPERVISORS TO EFFECTIVELY PLAN THEIR MAINTE ...

  6. Detection of Internal Pipeline Corrosion Using a Wireless Sensor

    SBC: AGINOVA, INC.            Topic: 47

    75085-Internal corrosion of natural gas pipelines is a leading cause of pipeline failures, leading to product losses as well as injuries and fatalities. Although in-line inspection tools are presently utilized, 30 percent of natural gas pipelines are not accessible to these tools, and internal corrosion is not detected in real time. This project will develop a wireless sensor network to detect t ...

  7. Membrane-Based Hybrid Process to Capture CO2 from Warm Flue Gas

    SBC: Chembrane            Topic: 45

    75772-Most coal-based power plants use pulverized coal boilers to generate superheated steam for turbine applications, accounting for over 50 percent of U.S. electricity generation. The flue gas stream from these plants contains carbon as CO2, along with N2 and other minor components such as SO2 and NOx. Although some commercial technologies are available to separate or capture the CO2 from the ...

  8. Carbon Dioxide Capture from Large Point Sources

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 45

    76045-The capture of carbon dioxide at the source of its emission has been a major focus in greenhouse gas emission control. Solutions must be both compact and economic, and also address the removal of other acid gases from natural gas streams. Current technologies used for capturing CO2 suffer from inefficient mass transfer and economics. This project will develop a stable, membrane-based, CO2 ...

  9. Step-Out Technology for Producing Hydrogen from Natural Gas

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 45

    75270-Steam methane reforming (SMR), the predominant commercial route for producing hydrogen, is a capital-intensive process ¿ capital charges represent 35-45% of product cost. In order to achieve the significant cost reductions required for the transition to a ¿hydrogen economy,¿ a meaningful shift in the underpinning reactor technology will be needed. This project will develop a safe, cost- ...

  10. Single Crystal Molybdates for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Experiments

    SBC: Integrated Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 16

    75593-The Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay Underground Detector has been identified by the DOE as a high scientific priority for Nuclear Physics research; however, the current generation of proposed experiments to determine neutrino mass would require 500 kg of germanium (Ge), isotopically enriched to 86% in 76Ge, costing more than $100 million. Therefore, several alternate parent isotopes for neut ...
