  1. Response-Based Parameter Estimation for Determining Unknown Bridge Foundations

    SBC: Infrasense, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evaluation of bridges for vulnerability to scour or other potential sources of damage requires knowledge of foundation conditions beneath piers and abutments that are often unknown. INFRASENSE proposed to develop and demonstrate a response-based parameter estimation method (RPEM) which will address the need for a simple, low-cost system for unknown foundation evaluation. The RPEM system is based ...

  3. AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL COMPUTER SIMULATION

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DEALS WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER SIMULATION OF A GENERALIZED AIR-TRAFFIC CONTROL RADAR. IT INCLUDES THE ABILITY TO REALISTICALLY SIMULATE RADAR RETURNSFROM GROUND CLUTTER AND VARIOUS KINDS OF HAZARDOUS WEATHER. THE SIMULATION WILL ALSO REPRESENT THE EFFECT OF CLUTTER ANDWEATHER RETURN LEAKAGE THROUGH THE RADAR'S ANGLE AND RANGE SIDELOBES. THE PROPOSED SIMULATION WILL ALLOW TH ...

  4. PREVENTING ICE ACCRETION VIA PASSIVE DYNAMICS

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPMENT AN INNOVATIVE ICEPHOBIC COATING THAT WILL PREVENT THE ACCRETION OF ICE ON SURFACES, SUCH AS RUNWAYS VIA THE PHENOMENON OF PASSIVE DYNAMICS. THE UNDERLYING CONCEPT IS TO INCORPORATE SPECIAL MATERIALS INTO EXISTING RUNWAY COATING FORMULATIONS WHICH, ALTHOUGH PASSIVE UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS, BECOME DYNAMIC WHEN ICE FORMING CONDITIONS P ...

  5. BATTERY-POWERED MARINE RADIOBEACON

    SBC: Design Automation Associates            Topic: N/A

    AN ENHANCED MARINE NAVIGATION BEACON TRANSMITTER IS PROPOSEDWHICH INTEGRATES THE TECHNOLOGIES OF POWER CONVERSION AND RFAMPLIFICATION AND EMPLOYS COMPONENTS AND A TOPOLOGY HAVING EXTREMELY LOW LOSSES. THE ENHANCED BEACON, IN WHICH OPERATING WAVEFORMS ARE DIGITALLY GENERATED, PRODUCES THE SAME SIGNAL WHICH IS TRANSMITTED BY EXISTING SYSTEMS.

  6. SPIN-SYNCHRONOUS X-RAY SINOGRAPHY SYSTEM (SXS) FOR IN SITU TURBINE ENGINE FLAW DETECTION

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

    UNCONTAINED AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINE FAILURES ARE DISASTEROUS. CURRENT EFFECTIVE NDE TECHNOLOGIES ARE CONSTRAINED TO UNSTRESSED, PART-LEVEL INSPECTION WHICH MAY NOT DETECT AN INCIPIENT FAILURE. USING APPROPRIATE ASPECTS OF COMPUTED-TOMOGRAPHY (CT) TECHNOLOGY, WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A SPIN-SYNCHRONOUS X-RAY SINOGRAPHY SYSTEM (SXS) THAT WILL BE CAPABLE OF DETECTING INCIPIENT FLAWS IN OPERATING TURBINE ...

  7. AIR-DEPLOYABLE SELF-LOCATING SURFACE DRIFTING BOUY

    SBC: Horizon Marine Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PRESENT DATUM MARKER BUOY REQUIRES EXCESS VALUABLE AIRCRAFT TIME DURING A SEARCH AND RESCUE. FINDING AND HOMING IN ON THE VHF MARKER WASTES TIME. THE OPPORTUNITY ISTO DEVELOP A GPS-BASED, SELF-LOCATING BUOY WHICH TRANSMITS ITS ACCURATE POSITION VIA SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS IN REAL TIME. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROGRAM ARE TO: (1) PRODUCE A WORKING PROTOTYPE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE GPS NAVIGATIO ...

  8. AUTOMATED TEST VEHICLE SYSTEM

    SBC: Macleod Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    UNTIL NOW, PRECISION, LABORATORY QUALITY, AUTOMATED CONTROL OF REMOTE VEHICLES HAS BEEN UNAVAILABLE. THERE EXISTS A NEED FOR PRECISE, REPEATABLE, AUTOMATED CONTROL OF TEST VEHICLES FOR IMPORTANT AND EXPENSIVE VEHICLE COLLISION TESTING. BY APPLYING OUR PROPRIETARY NEW TECHNOLOGY, SUCH VEHICLE CONTROL IS POSSIBLE. THIS TECHNOLOGY IS BASED ON AFFORDABLE COMPUTER BASED LOCAL NAVIGATION AND ROBOTIC CON ...
