  1. US FLAG COASTAL RO/RO SHIPS; APPLICATION OF CASSETTE TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Advanced Marine Enterprises,            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL EVALUATE THE RANGE OF SHIP SIZES AND POWER LEVELS (SPEEDS) TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM SHIP CHARACTERISTICS FOR OPERATING U.S. FLAG RO/RO SHIPS IN U.S. COASTAL SERVICE. RO/RO CARGO HANDLING TECHNIQUES PREVALENT IN EUROPE AND SCANDINAVIA WILL BE INCORPORATED AS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE SERIES OF SHIPS INVESTIGATED. THESE TECHNIQUES INVOLVE THE USE OF CASSETTES TO HANDLE CONTAINERS ...

  4. ACOUSTIC DETECTION OF AXLES

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING ACOUSTIC RADIATION FROM VEHICLE TIRES TO PROVIDE A LOW COST, EASY TO DEPLOY, UNOBTRUSIVE, RELAIBLE REPLACEMENT FOR THE CURRENT METHOD OF COLLECTING VEHICLE AXLE PASSAGE DATA. THE PROPOSED METHOD WILL CROSS-CORRELATE THE TIRE NOISE RECEIVED AT SPATIALLY SEPARATED MICROPHONES TO LOCATE AXLE CROSSINGS. THE PROCESSING ...

  5. LASER BASED REAL-TIME POSITIONING SYSTEM

    SBC: Spatial Positioning Systems            Topic: N/A

    SPATIAL POSITIONING SYSTEMS INC. (SPSI) PROPOSES TO RESEARCH AND DEVELOP A SELF-CALIBRATING THREE DIMENSIONAL LASER-BASED POSITIONING SYSTEM FOR INTEGRATED USE IN A RIVER BOTTOM MAPPING SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE REAL-TIME 3-D POSITIONING OF A BOAT TO AN ACCURACY OF 100 MM IN THE VERTICAL AND 1 M IN THE HORIZONTAL. THE UPDATE RATE IS EXPECTED TO BE 50HZ AND THE RANGE 300 ME ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. LASER GENERATED SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVES FOR FLAW DETECTION IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS.

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM STUDIES REQUIRE IN-SERVICE INSPECTION USING NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) TECHNIQUES FOR FLAW DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION. IN CASES WHERE SUCH DEFECTS ARE SMALL COMPARED WITH THE THICKNESS OF THE SECTION, ULTRASONIC METHODS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE THE MOST SUITABLE. IT WOULD BE IDEAL TO MAKE SUCH MEASUREMENTS REMOTELY WITH A SYSTEM COMBINING THE STRONG FEATURES OF ULTRASONI ...

  9. POWDER SYSTEM

    SBC: Energy & Minerals Research            Topic: N/A

    TWO YEARS AGO IT WAS EXPERIMENTALLY SHOWN THAT CHARGED WATERDROPLETS COULD KNOCK-DOWN SMOKE RAPIDLY. WE NOW PROPOSE TO TO DEVELOP A DEVICE WHICH USES A CHRGED FINELY POWERED SOLIDAEROSOL TO KNOCK-DOWN SMOKE. USING A SOLID INSTEAD OF A LIQUID AEROSOL HAS SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES. THE SOLID PART ICLES CAN BE PRE-FORMED IN A READY-TO-USE STATE. PARTICLE SIZE CAN BE RIGOROUSLY CONTROLLED AND HAVE OPTIMU ...
