  1. DEVELOPMENT OF FIBER OPTIC APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS

    SBC: Edjewise Sensor Products Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEW LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING FIBER OPTICS AND HIGH EFFICIENCY ARC SOURCES, WILL BE APPLIED IN THIS PHASE I PROJECT TO DEVELOP INNOVATIVE APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS (ALS) FOR AIRPORT RUNWAYS. THE GOAL IS TO REPLACE THE LARGE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUAL INCANDESCENT SPOT LIGHTS PRESENTLY IN SUCH SYSTEMS WITH REMOTE SOURCES COUPLED TO OPTICAL WAVEGUIDES THAT WILL TRANSMIT AND PROJECT THE REQUIRED HIG ...

  2. DESIGNING DISPLAYS AND DECISION SUPPORTS USING COGNITIVE SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    SCREENING BAGGAGE AND PASSENGERS FOR CONCEALED WEAPONS AND EXPLOSIVES REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT COMPONENT OF THE AVIATION SECURITY SYSTEM. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES ENHANCE OUR ABILITY TO OBTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHAPE AND COMPOSITION OF CONCEALED ITEMS. HOWEVER, THE DEVELOPMENT OF DECISION SUPPORTS TO PRESENT THIS INFORMATION TO THE OPERATOR HAS LAGGED BEHIND. HOW A SYSTEM PRESENTS INFORMATIO ...

  3. NEURAL NETWORK AUGMENTED GPS/LORAN-C NAVIGATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Netrologic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NETROLOGIC PROPOSES TO BUILD A NAVIGATION SYSTEM FOR SHIPS WHICH INTEGRATES GPS AND LORAN-C. THE GPS SYSTEM PROVIDES ASF ERROR CORRECTION TO LORAN-C SO THAT THE CORRECTED LORAN-C IS ABLE TO FURNISH NEAR GPS QUALITY GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION INFORMATION. IN AREAS WHERE DGPS IS AVAILABLE THE DGPS SIGNAL CAN BE FURNISHED AS A REFERENE TO REALIZE CORRESPONDING GAINS IN ACCURACY FOR CORRECTED LORAN0-C. A N ...

  4. HYBRID POLYMERIC GLAZING MATERIALS

    SBC: Rolltrusion Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PROCESS IS PROPOSED FOR THE APPLICATION OF POLYMERIC MATERIALS FOR AUTOMOTIVE WINDOWS. SEMI-CRYSTALLINE POLYMERIC MATERIALS CAN BE RENDERED CLEAR THROUGH 3-D ORIENTATION VIA SOLID STATE PROCESSING. APPLYING THIS TECHNOLOGY TO A HYBRID POLYMER STRUCTURE CAN RESULT IN CHEMICALLY RESISTANT, MECHANICALLY STRONG, OPTICALLY CLEAR AND ECONOMICALLY VIABLE PLASTIC WINDOWS FOR GROUND TRANSPORTATION.

  5. OF LONGITUDINAL STRESSES IN RAILS UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Eggers And Associates            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL TECHNIQUE (PATENT IN APPLICATION) IS PROPOSED FOR THE NON-DESTRUCTIVE MEASUREMENT OF LONGITUDINAL STRESSES IN RAIL WHICH MAKE USE OF TWO PHENOMENA KNOWN AS (1) MAGNE TOSTRICTION AND (2) SKIN EFFECT. MAGNETOSTRICTION IS EXHIBITED BY FERROMAGNETIC MATERIALS SUCH AS RAIL STEELS AND GIVES RISE TO A CHANGE IN THE MAGNETIC PERMEABILITY WITH APPLIED STRESS. THE SKIN EFFECT DETERMINES THE DISTRIBU ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. DUE TO THE IMPROVED MECHNICAL PROPERTIES AND DURABILITY OF POLYMER CONCRETE MATERIALS, THERE IS A LOT OF INTEREST IN INTHE HIGHWAY COMMUNITY FOR USE OF THESE MATERIALS FOR PAV PAVEMENT APPLICATIONS.

    SBC: Pahdalai Coatings Co.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE IMPROVED MECHNICAL PROPERTIES AND DURABILITY OF POLYMER CONCRETE MATERIALS, THERE IS A LOT OF INTEREST IN INTHE HIGHWAY COMMUNITY FOR USE OF THESE MATERIALS FOR PAV PAVEMENT APPLICATIONS. BUT THERE IS NO INFORMATION AVAILABLEABOUT ITS APPLICATION FOR AIRPORT RUNWAY USE. PANDALAI COATINGS COMPANY PROPOSES TO TAKE UP A STUDY OF POLYMER CONCRETE MATERIALS TO EVALUATE ITS FEASIBILITY AS AN ...
