  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. "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, ...

  4. HYBRID METHOD FOR ASSESSMENT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL PROFICIENCY MAINTENANCE.

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO IDENTIFY THE EFFECT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL ON REGAINING AND MAINTAINING FLYING SKILLS. BY COGNITIVE REHEARSAL (CR) WE MEAN ACTIVITIES PERFORMED BY THE FAA INSPECTOR DURING FLIGHT PROFICIENCY CHECKS SUCH AS CHECKLIST VERIFICATION, VERIFICATION OF ABNORMAL PROCEDURE EXECUTION, AND THE LIKE. PRECISE DATA ABOUT THE TYPES OF SKILLS MAINTAINED VIA CR, THE RATE OF DECAY OF THE SKILLS NOT MA ...

  5. AEROSOL CONCENTRATION BY SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATOR

    SBC: David Gordon Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FAA AVIATION SECURITY HAS EXPRESSED A NEED FOR TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE INCREASED SENSITIVITY/RESPONSE TO AIRBORNE FORMS OF EXPLOSIVES. THE TECHNOLOGIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATION (SCAEP) HAVE CAPABILITIES IN CONCENTRATING THE CONTAMINANTS IN LARGE VOLUMES OF AIR INTO SMALL VOLUMES OF LIQUID WITH INCREASED DETECTION CAPABILITY. AN R & D PROGRAM TO DEFINE CAPT ...

  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 ...

  7. FIBER OPTIC BASED SENSOR SYSTEMS FOR TURBINE ENGINES

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTRA PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN INNOVATIVE SET OF FIBER OPTIC SENSORS SUITABLE FOR USE IN MONITORING COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES. THE SENSOR SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE A COMMON ELECTRO-OPTIC TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER/SIGNAL PROCESSOR (EO MODULE) AND FIBER OPTIC LINK. THREE DIFFERENT SENSOR HEADS WILL BE DEMONSTRATED WHICH WILL MEASURE ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT/PRESSURE, VIBRATION, AND TEMPERATURE. THE SENSOR ...

  9. NEW RARE EARTH ALUMINATE SCINTILLATORS FOR GAMMA-RAY DETECTION

    SBC: Alem Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DETECTION OF WEAPONRY AND OTHER HAZARDS IS AN UNFORTUNATE BUT NECESSARY FACTOR IN MODERN TRANSPORTATION ENVIRONMENT. FOR INANIMATE OBJECTS, ONE PARTICULARLY ATTRACTIVE TECHNIQUE IS GAMMARAY DETECTION. IRRADIATION WITH A HIGH-ENERGY SOURCE, SUCH AS A NEUTRON EMITTER, CAUSES ELEMENTS IN THE OBJECT TO EMIT GAMMA RAYS. EACH ELEMENT HAS ITS OWN CHARACTERISTIC RADIATION SIGNATURE, WHICH CAN BE USED TO D ...
