  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. An advanced hyperspectral imaging system for target discrimination

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA04061

    The field of hyperspectral imaging has undergone tremendous development in the past decade. Research and development of the hyperspectral imaging in military applications has primarily focused on air-to-ground and space-to-ground reconnaissance of stationary military targets and terrestrial backgrounds. In this SBIR program, researchers of Dymas Research propose an innovative hyperspectral imaging ...

  7. Consolidated High Density and High Energy Density Nanocomposites Produced by Arrested Reactive Milling

    SBC: EXOTHERM CORP.            Topic: MDA04017

    Highly reactive nanocomposite powders will be consolidated into solid shapes suitable for use as structural components of munitions. Nanostructured, reactive composites of intermetallic or thermite compositions have been prepared recently by Arrested Reactive Milling (ARM). Specific materials prepared previously include compositions in the systems Al-Fe2O3, Al-MoO3, and B-Ti. The prepared nanoco ...

  8. Novel Infrared Point Sources

    SBC: FORUN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04030

    There is a need for broadband infrared light source for simulation projection systems operating at room temperature. We are proposing to develop tunable quantum cascade infrared light emitters based on III-V nitride semiconductors. During Phase I, the proposed emitter will be designed and fabricated. Electro-luminescence in the infrared will be measured at room temperature and low temperatures. In ...

  9. Dynamic Spectral Filtering Techniques

    SBC: NANOOPTO CORP.            Topic: MDA04079

    NanoOpto proposes to combine novel nano-structured materials with liquid crystal actuators in an extension of resonant grating filter theory to design a highly compact, high performance, easily manufactured, dynamic spectral filter. The theoretical breakthrough is twofold: first, in the use of nano-scale gratings in the filter design - this allows significantly and continuously modify material pr ...

  10. Enhanced Photorefractive Lithium Niobate for Passive Agile Filters

    SBC: Nova Phase, Inc.            Topic: MDA04079

    Single crystals of lithium niobate can be used to construct a very simple passive agile filter, in which an incoming beam interferes with its own back-reflection to set up a diffraction grating that results in energy transfer and depletion of the transmitted power. The virtue of such an approach is that it can respond to incident coherent radiation of any wavelength within its range of sensitivit ...
