  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  2. Small Scale Diesel Generator for Railway Applications

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 122FR1

    Autonomous inspection systems are necessary to increase awareness of track safety and maintenance issues. However, electrical power for these systems is not available under freight railway vehicles. Mainstream Engineering (MEC) proposes development of a small-scale diesel generator with an integrated starter-alternator (ISA) and automated battery charging circuit for this application. The proposed ...

  3. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  4. A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO SECURITY CHECKPOINT OPTIMIZATION

    SBC: International Productivity            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH WILL IDENTIFY AND ANALYZE BOTH THE QUANTITATIVEAND QUALITATIVE ASPECTS OF SECURITY CHECKPOINT OPERATIONS. USING INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES, SCREENING OPERATIONS WILL BE BROKEN INTO BASIC ELEMENTS WHICH WILL THEN BE MEASURED AND INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SUCH COMPONENTS AS: - PROCESSING RATES - DISTRIBUTION OF PASSENGER ARRIVALS - BOARDING VOLUMES ...

  5. 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 ...
