  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 ...

  6. High Bandwidth Optoelectronic Data Interfaces for Satellites

    SBC: ALPHION CORP.            Topic: AF04043

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes the feasibility study of integrated all-optical 2R regeneration and 3R optical signal regeneration devices for use as high-speed interfaces in satellite applications (solicitation AF04-043). Currently available products achieve regeneration of signals by resorting to Optical to Electrical and then Electrical to optical conversion (OEO), which results in costly, ...

  7. Bio-Inspired Delayed Stall Fan/Compressor for Increased Performance

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: AF04188

    Current turbomachinery designs have been optimized, for the most part, using "average flow" design concepts and tools. Future advances in engine performance, especially with regard to increasing per stage pressure ratio, stall margins, and reduced sensitivity to inlet distortion in fans/compressors, must come from innovative technologies which move beyond the current "steady flow" design space. ...

  8. A high-performance phase shifter for phased array antenna

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: AF04026

    Recently, expanding wireless communication systems have presented new challenges to design and produce high quality miniature tunable phase shifters with low cost. Dymas Research proposes a novel RF phase shifter fabricated on high-performance ferreelectric films to provide tunability for adaptive microwave devices. This tunable microwave device has the advantage of achieving frequency or phase tu ...

  9. An active polarization imaging system

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: AF04210

    Polarization imaging system has been explored as a method to improve target detection capabilities in remote sensing and other applications. Polarization imaging can improve target contrast, reduce clutter, aid in the defeat of intervening scatterers, and provide orientation information about various target features. The feasibility of polarization technology application in separation of a boost ...
