  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. Readorium Rising Reader: Smart Nonfiction Comprehension Software For Students In Grades 3-5

    SBC: Mtelegence Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of the Readorium Rising Reader, a web-based game for students in grades 3 to 5 intended to strengthen reading comprehension of non-fiction science text. The game will provide students with strategies to use as they construct meaning and decipher new content vocabulary. The game will supplement classroom lessons and will be aligned with the Common Core S ...

  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 ...

  6. ICING MONITORING EQUIPMENT

    SBC: JONAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A RUGGED NEW DEVICE FOR MONITORING THE ONSET OF ICE FORMATION ON SURFACES OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES, ROADS, BRIDGES AND AIRCRAFTS, WILL BE DEVELOPED AND A PROTOTYPE WILL BE LABORATORY TESTED. THE NOVEL GAGE AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEM IS PARTLY BASED ON THE TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO MEASURE CONDUCTIVITY OF SOLUTIONS. BASED ON EXISTING TECHNOLOGY, AND ALREADY TESTED UNDER HIGH ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. A COURSEWARE AUTHORING AND DELIVERING SYSTEM FOR CHINESE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION

    SBC: Comptek Company            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF A USER-FRIENDLY AND COST-EFFECTIVE COURSEWARE AUTHORING AND DELIVERING SYSTEM FOR CHINESE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION. THE SYSTEM'S INTERFACE WITH COURSEWARE AUTHORS IS SUPPORTED BY POWERFUL YET CONVENIENT FEATURES LIKE WINDOW SCREEN, MOUSE-MOVED CURSOR, AND MENU-DRIVEN COMMANDS. THE AUTHORS CAN USE THE SYSTEM WITHOUT THE NEED TO KNOW OR REMEMBER ANY PROGRAMMING O ...
