  2. Deep Submergence Rated Flexible Hoses and Piping System Connectors

    SBC: ATKINS & PEARCE, INC.            Topic: SOCOM08002

    Connecting deep submergence systems (submarines) in the field can be a dangerous and difficult task. The rigid piping systems used today have little flexibility to accommodate for variations in connection points and differences in tolerances between vessels. Atkins & Pearce, a 200 year old textile processing company, has developed a technology that uses a multi-layered approach to create a high ...

  3. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  4. TCAS I DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Acom Microwave            Topic: N/A

    AS A RESULT OF THE INCREASING VOLUME OF AIR TRAFFIC IT HAS BECOME APPARENT THAT A NEED EXIST FOR A DEVICE OPERATED ON BOARD THE AIRCRAFT TO WARN THE PILOT OF OTHER AIRCRAFT THAT MAY POSE A POTENTIAL COLLISION. OUR OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A INEXPENSIVE TCAS I SYSTEM (AD-VANCED TECHNOLOGY AIRBORNE TRAFFIC ALERT AND COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM) THAT MEET "ALL" OF THE FAA TCAS I REQUIREMENTS AS PER RTC ...

  7. MINIATURE MICROSENSOR ARRAY BIOMIMETIC "ELECTRONIC NOSE" FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF AIRCRAFT FIRES.

    SBC: Microsensor Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT DAY FIRE DETECTORS NORMALLY EMPLOY A SINGLE SENSOR, SUCH AS AN OPTICAL DENSITY OR IONIZATION DETECTOR, THAT HAS WELL KNOWN LIMITATIONS. ALARM DECISIONS ARE THUS BASED ON A SINGLE MEASUREMENT THAT IS OFTEN INACCURATE, AND INSENSITIVE. WE PROPOSE TO USE AN ARRAY OF VERY SMALL AND INEXPENSIVE SOLID-STATE DEVICES THAT ARE HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO A VARIETY OF PHYSICAL EFFECTS AND CHEMICAL VAPOR PRO ...

  8. OCEAN WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER

    SBC: Ocean Wave Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR AIDS TO NAVIGATION (ATON) ARE ESSENTIAL SIGNPOSTS FOR SAFE PASSAGE ALONG COASTAL AND OFFSHORE SEAWAYS. PRESENTLY, THEIR SIGNALS ARE POWERED BY ON-SITE ENGINE GENERATORS REQUIRING CONSIDERABLE AND COSTLY MAINTENANCE. ATON AUTONOMY WILL BE GREATLY INCREASED WITH DEEP DISCHARGE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY PROVIDING THAT ON-SITE CHARGING SOURCES ARE USED. AMONG NATURALLY AVAILABLE SOURCES, THE UNCEASING ...

  9. An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

    SBC: Polymer Bridge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed in 1 eight-hour day; and 4) be cost-competitive on an installed cost basis. This bridge will be buil ...

  10. STRESSMETER FOR MEASURING DYNAMIC BRIDGE STRESSES

    SBC: Re/spec Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS FOR A COMPACT, PORTABLE SYSTEM CAPABLE OF MEASURING DYNAMIC STRESSES INDUCED BY HEAVY TRUCKS IN THE STRU- TURAL MEMBERS OF BRIDGES. USE OF STATE-OF-OF THE-ART ELEC- TRONIC CIRCUITRY NOW ALLOWS CONSTRUCTION OF A HYBRID ANALOG-DIGITAL INDICATOR THATCAN DISPLAY THE PEAK STRESSES A BRIDGEEXPERIENCES BY USING DATA FROM STRAIN SENSORS ATTACHED TO THE BRIDGE. THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING SUC ...
