  1. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...

  2. COMPREHENSIVE INTRMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION VISUAL DATABASE

    SBC: Reebie Associates            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE VALUE OF DELIVERING INTERMODAL FREIGHT DATA TO A WIDE VARIETY OF TRANSPORTATION PLANNERS; FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND ULTIMATELY SOME PRIVATE SECTOR USERS. THE PROJECT'S CHALLENGE IS TO MAKE DATA ACCESSIBLE IN TERMS OF THE USER'S ABILITY TO INTERACT WITH VARIOUS SOURCES AND DEPTHS OF INFORMATION AND THE SYSTEM'S ABILITY TO BE TIME RESPONSIVE. THE FACT THAT THE DATA ...

  3. FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS.

    SBC: Springborn Materials Science            Topic: N/A

    FLAME RETARDANT FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE FOAM FINDS WIDESPREAD COMMERCIAL USE AS A SEATING MATERIAL DUE TO ITS FAVORABLE COST, SUPPORT, AND RESILIENCE CHARACTERISTICS. HOWEVER, SMOKE AND TOXIC GAS EVOLUTION IN THE EVENT OF FIRE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM. THE GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO CREATE A FIRE RESISTANT COMPOSITE FOAM STRUCTURE WHICH WILL GENERATE NEGLIGIBLE QUANTITIES OF TOXIC FUMES WHEN EXPOSED TO FI ...

  4. TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C.

    SBC: The Associated Corp            Topic: N/A

    TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C. THE CURRENT TLAM-C USES A TERRAIN MAPPING RADAR ALTIMETER AND CORRELATES THE SENSED AREA AT KEY WAYPOINTS WITH A STORED DIGITAL REPRESENTATION OF THE TERRAIN AREA AT THE WAYPOINTS TO PROVIDE MID-COURSE AND TERMINAL GUIDANCE CORRECTION TO THE INERTIAL NA ...

  5. IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF TONPILZ-TYPE TRANSDUCER ELEMENTS CAN RESULT FROM (1) INCREASING THE AREA OF THE RADIATING FACE AND (2) DECREASING THE MASS OF THE RADIATING HEAD.

    SBC: B-k Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF TONPILZ-TYPE TRANSDUCER ELEMENTS CAN RESULT FROM (1) INCREASING THE AREA OF THE RADIATING FACE AND (2) DECREASING THE MASS OF THE RADIATING HEAD. HOWEVER, SUCH IMPROVEMENT IS LIMITED BY THE INTRODUCTION OF A FLEXURE MODE, WITH THE OUTER RING MOVING AT A DIFFERENT VELOCITY AND PHASE FROM THE INNER AREA OF THE HEAD-MASS. THE UNDESIRABLE RESULT IS A BI-MODAL RESPONSE WITH, GEN ...

  6. Inexpensive Digital Phase Fluorometer

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Fluorescence-lifetime based sensing provides a more robust and reliable detection method than intensity measurements which are notoriously prone to systematic errors. Measurement of fluorescence lifetime is also an important adjunct to quantitative spectrofluorimetric measurements in direct fiber-optic sensing systems. The reason for this is that dynamic quenching effects by other species in the s ...

  9. Composite Spring Propulsion System

    SBC: DEEGAN RESEARCH GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Expendable mine-hunting countermeasures require a propulsion system that is acoustically and magnetically quiet while being light in weight, reliable, and inexpensive. Proposed for development and demonstration is a composite spring energy storage device. Calculations show that a spring weighing only eight pounds can deliver 1/10 horsepower for three to five minutes to power a small vehicle. The ...

  10. Surface Mobility Technology CASPER: Stealthy, Modular, Amphibious, Small Armored Vehicle

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CASPER is a new vehicle designed for stealthy shipping, transportation and deployment, amphibious operations, and modular construction, to create a low-cost family of vehicles and platforms. The vehicle is to use an electric drive, with an engine-driven high-speed electric generator, providing power to electric motors for driving tracks, waterjets and other needs. Innovation lies in the overall de ...
