  1. "MAGLEV OPTICAL DETECTION OF OBSTACLES (MODO)"

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE REALIZATION OF SAFE, HIGH-SPEED MAGLEV OR STEEL WHEEL GROUND TRANSPORTATION WILL REQUIRE A RELIABLE SYSTEM TO DETECT OBSTACLES IN THE GUIDEWAY AT A CONSIDERABLE DISTANCE. REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE ALL-WEATHER OPERATION, DAY TIME AND NIGHT TIME OPERATION, AND THE DETECTION OF OBSTACLES AROUND THE GUIDEWAY CURVE (NOT IN LINE OF SIGHT). IN ADDITION THE SYSTEM MUST BE SAFE FOR PASSENGERS ON THE TRAIN, ...

  6. HIGH-SPEED SWITCHES FOR MAGLEV VEHICLES

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP SWITCHES CAPABLE OF RAPID OPERATION AT MAXIMUM VEHICLE SPEEDS FOR MAGLEV SYSTEMS WITH DIFFICULT TOPOLOGIES. MAGLEV SYSTEMS REQUIRE SWITCHES CAPABLE OF ENABLING ENTRY AND EXIT FROM THE MAIN GUIDEWAY AT HIGH SPEED (UP TO 134 M/S) I ORDER TO MAINTAIN GUIDEWAY CAPACITY. SOME VEHICLE/GUIDEWAY CONFIGURATIONS ARE NOT WELL SUITED TO IMPLEMENTING A HIGH SPEED SWI ...

  8. ADVANCED MATERIAL CONCEPTS FOR GUARDRAIL END TREATMENTS

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, 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 ...
