  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. HIGHWAY FOG WARNING SYSTEM

    SBC: SENTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DENSE FOG HAS OFTEN BEEN A CAUSE OF TRAGIC ROAD ACCIDENTS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COST EFFECTIVE HIGHWAY FOG DETECTION SYSTEM WHICH MONITORS ROAD VISIBILITY AND PROVIDES WARNINGS TO MOTORISTS THROUGH ROADSIDE DISPLAYS OR RADIO COMMUNICATION IS PROPOSED FOR DOT 94-FH7. THE PROPOSED OPTICAL SENSOR MEASURES SCATTERED LIGHT FROM FOG PARTICLES. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE FOCUSED ON DETERMINING THE FEASIB ...

  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. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS DEVELOPMENTAL EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A COMPUTER INTEGRATED ROBOT WORK CELL GAGING FINISHED PARTS OR OTHER ASSEMBLY/MACHINING OPERATIONS.

    SBC: Autoflex, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS DEVELOPMENTAL EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A COMPUTER INTEGRATED ROBOT WORK CELL GAGING FINISHED PARTS OR OTHER ASSEMBLY/MACHINING OPERATIONS. THE FOCUS OF THE RESEARCH IS TO CONTROL THE ROBOT TOOL CONTROL POINT (TCP) THROUGH AN ADAPTIVE FEEDBACK CONTROL SYSTEM. THE ROLE OF THE FEEDBACK CONTROL SYSTEM IS TO CONTROL AND MODIFY THE PATH OF THE TCP TO WIT ...

  6. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS DEVELOPMENT IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A THREE DIMENSIONAL VISION BASED PASSIVE OBJECT RECOGNITION SYSTEM CAPABLE OF GENERATING THREE DIMENSIONAL COORDINATE LOCATION INFORMATION IN REAL TIME AT VIDEO

    SBC: Autoflex, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS DEVELOPMENT IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A THREE DIMENSIONAL VISION BASED PASSIVE OBJECT RECOGNITION SYSTEM CAPABLE OF GENERATING THREE DIMENSIONAL COORDINATE LOCATION INFORMATION IN REAL TIME AT VIDEO FRAME RATES OF 30 FRAMES PER SECOND. THE SYSTEM CONFIGURATION UNDER INVESTIGATION WILL UTILIZE PARALLEL PROCESSING OF RAW VIDEO INPUT FROM MULTIPLE C ...

  8. Multispectral Imaging Comparative Design Study

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Conventional imaging spectrometers acquire data within a four dimensional continuum (x,y,l,t) in several ways, all of which involve some form of scanning--mirrors must be moved or different filters must be dialed in. We are proposing to compare the relative costs and benefits of three different approaches to obtaining multispectral imaging data. The three proposed approaches represent a broad cros ...

  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. Near Infrared Fluorophores for Optical Biosensors

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although many fluorophores exist which are suitable for labeling biomolecules, most of them have absorbance and fluorescence wavelenghts which overlap with naturally occurring biological fluorescence. This complicates their use with optical bio- sensors. A very limited number of commercially available near-IR fluorophores exist (e.g., Cy-5, Cy-5.5, Cy-7) which contain suitable reactive groups fo ...
