  1. ADVANCED ELECTRIC SWITCHING CONCEPTS FOR MAGLEV VEHICLES

    SBC: POWER SUPERCONDUCTOR APPLICATIONS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THREE SYSTEMS OF ACTIVE GUIDEWAY SWITCHING CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED WHICH USE FAIL- SAFE ELECTRICAL SWITCHING WITHOUT NEED FOR LARGE MECHANICAL MOVEMENT OF GUIDEWAY STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE SPECIFIC APPLICATION OF THIS APPARATUS TO A 300 MPH, 40- 80 TONNE CLASS MAGLEV VEHICLE OF 50-200 PASSENGERS IS USED AS A BASELINE DESIGN WITH A VEHICLE WIDTH 3.65 M AND EXTENDING IN LENGTH FROM 14 M TO 56 M. THE TH ...

  2. ADVANCED MATERIAL CONCEPTS FOR GUARDRAIL END TREATMENTS

    SBC: United Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    GUARDRAIL TERMINALS ARE SOME OF THE MORE TROUBLESOME AND POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS ROADSIDE APPURTENANCES. RECENTLY DEVELOPED TERMINAL CONCEPTS WHICH HAVE PASSED CURRENT CRASH TEST CRITERIA TEND TO BE EXPENSIVE AND MAY REQUIRE EXCESSIVE LENGTH OF NEED, FLARE-OUT SPACE AND ADDITIONAL FILL AND GRADING. THIS PHASE I SBIR PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MORE EFFICIENT ENERGY ABSORBING TERMINAL CON ...

  4. ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATION FOR REFRIGERATED SHIPPING CONTAINERS

    SBC: Re/spec Inc            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATIONS TO IMPROVE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF REFRIGERATED SHIPPING CONTAINERS WHILE AVOIDING THE ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (CFC'S) IN FOAM INSULATION CURRENTLY BEING USED. ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATIONS, CURRENTLY UNDER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, DO NOT CONTAIN CFC'S AND HAVE VERYHIGH THERM ...

  5. A Neural Network-based System for Automated Detection of Wire Insulation Chafing from TDR/FDR Data

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to develop an automated system for identification and characterization of chafing in the aircraft wiring. Chafing degrades wiring integrity and can lead to shorts and/or damaged data pathways. Shorts have been associated with deadly in-flight fires. Damaged data pathways have caused engine shutdowns, loss of control, and other safety hazards. Currently recognizing and measurin ...

  6. A NOVEL MASS SPECTROMETER FOR THE DETECTION OF VAPORS FROM EXPLOSIVE, INCENDIARIES AND NOXIOUS GASES

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOUTHWEST SCIENCIES, INC. PROPOSES A NOVEL MASS SPECTROMETRIC METHOD, * IONIZATION ENERGY MODULATED MASS SPECTROMETRY (IEMMS), FOR THE RAPID DETECTION OF VAPORS FROM EXPLOSIVES, INCENDIARIES AND NOXIOUS GASES. IEMMS COMBINES ELECTRON IMPACT IONIZATION USING A MONOCHROMATIC ELECTRON BEAM WITH ION DETECTION USING TWIN TIME-OF-FLIGHT (TOF) MASS ANALYZERS. ONE ANALYZER QUANTIFIES POSITIVE IONS WHILE T ...

  7. Automated parking-cruising detection and measurement using Bluetooth AVI Sensor network

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Searching for street parking, a behavior known as cruising for parking, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many recent smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue, but the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. The goal of this work is to develop methods to detect and measure cruising for parking and its effects on congestion u ...

  8. BRL-CAD BASED LUGGAGE SIMULATION TOOL

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MODELING ANBD SIMULATIONS ARE USED EXTENSIVELY IN THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF "BULK" EXPLOSIVES DETECTION DEVICES. HOWEVER, OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF THE INPUT MODEL, NAMELY LUGGAGE AND EXPLOSIVE CONTENTS, CAN LEAD TO POOR DETECTOR DESIGNS. MANUAL PRODUCTION OF SUCH INPUT IS COSTLY AND ERROR PRONE. THIS EFFORT WILL AUTOMATE THE PRODUCTION OF SIMULATED LUGGAGE THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER TOOL. ...

  10. Client-Centered Calibration of the NOAA Climate Forecast System

    SBC: PRESCIENT WEATHER LTD            Topic: 821C

    Prescient Weather proposes four Phase I tasks to increase the value of the new NOAA Climate Forecast System to commercial customers. The capabilities demonstrated and explored in Phase I will be developed and integrated in Phase II as components of a new Seasonal Information and Decision Support System (SIDSS) for our World Climate Service customers. The Phase I tasks are: • Improve season for ...
