  1. APPLYING FIBER OPTIC SENSORS TO REAL-WORLD INDUSTRIAL PROBLEMS

    SBC: Future Focus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER OPTIC SENSORS HAVE VERY ATTRACTIVE FEATURES FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS. BECAUSE THEY USE NONCONDUCTING SILICA INSTEAD OF WIRES, THEY CAN OPERATE IN HIGH ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD ENVIRONMENTS AND EXPLOSION HAZARD AREAS. THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE 1980S WERE THAT FIBER OPTIC SENSOR USAGE WOULD BE OVER $100M PER YEAR IN 1993; ACTUAL SALES WERE UNDER $20M. THE ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE ERROR WAS IN PART DUE ...

  2. ADVANCED FIRE DETECTION BASED ON COMBINED CONVENTIONAL SMOKE AND CO SENSORS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT SMOKE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES SUFFER FROM SIGNIFICANT FALSE ALARM RATES. THESE PROBLEMS ARE CURRENTLY BEING ADDRESSED BY REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF EXISTING PARTICULATE DETECTORS. IN THIS WORK, THE FEASIBILITY OF A COMBINED PARTICULATE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR WILL BE EVALUATED. THE USE OF MULTIPLE FIRE SIGNATURES HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR REDUCING THE FALSE ALARM PROBLEMS WHILE INCREASING ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A STANDARD CALIBRATION MODEL FOR THE NEAR-INFRARED ANALYSIS OF GASOLINE

    SBC: L T Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY (NIST) HAS UNDERTAKEN AN EFFORT TO PROVIDE SOLID STANDARDS AND ALGORITHMS FOR THE STANDARDIZATION OF NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROPHOTOMETERS. THIS EFFORT, COUPLED WITH RECENT ADVANCES IN MATHEMATICAL ALGORITHMS FOR REGRESSION MODEL TRANSFER, HAS CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF STANDARD CALIBRATION MODELS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH FOCUSES ON TH ...

  4. HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS.

    SBC: NEOCERA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTSC) FILMS HAVE A LARGE POTENTIAL AS DETECTORS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. TO BE USEFUL FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS, IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE HTSC FILM QUALITY SHOULD BE VERY HIGH, BOTH FROM THE VIEW POINTS OF STRUCTURE AND SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES. A MAJOR TASK, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE HIGH SENSITIVITY, FAST RESPONSE, LOW NOISE LEVELS, AND UNIFORM SPECTRAL ...

  6. FEASIBILITY FOR DEVELOPING AN ELECTRO-OPTIC-BASED MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR FING GAGES

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID AND ACCURATE MEASUREMENT OF INTERNALLY THREADED HOLES IS ONE OF TODAY'S MORE DIFFICULT MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE IN LIGHT OF THE RECENTLY ADOPTED FASTENER QUALITY ACT (PL 101-595/HR3000) AND MIL-SPEC 7742D FOR CLASS 3 SAFETY-CRITICAL FASTENERS. QUEST HAS PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED A NUMBER OF MINIATURIZED ELECTRO-OPTIC-BASED MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS THAT WOULD BE ADAPTABLE FOR ...
