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

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  2. 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 ...

  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. COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY TO EVALUATE AIRCRAFT VORTEX WAKE INTENSITY

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE DOES NOT EXIST TODAY A UNIFIED MEANS OF EVALUATING THE VORTEX INTENSITY BEHIND COMMERCIAL JET LINERS PRIOR TO PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING AT FULLSCALE. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, DATA AND ANALYTICAL DEVELOPMENTS HAVE PROVIDED MUCH ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGY WHICH MAY MAKE POSSIBLE THE PREDICTION OF WAKE INTENSITY AND DECAY FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES. THE OBJECT OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO DEMO ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Reducing Traffic Pressure During Hazmat Incidents By Utilizing Situation Awareness Capabilities

    SBC: Drakontas LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal responds to DOT topic 081-PH2 "Hazardous Materials (Using Handheld Devices to Assist in Emergency Response to Hazardous Materials Incidents)." The significant innovation in this project involves extending cutting edge tools developed to enhance situation awareness among first responders with appropriate hazmat and traffic information to create a framework for interperting traffic re ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
