  1. SHALLOW WATER SONAR SYSTEM

    SBC: Ocean Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPECIAL MILITARY NARROW BEAM ACOUSTIC PROJECTORS AND TRANSMISSION TECHNIQUES CAN BE EASILY ADAPTED FOR COMMERCIAL USE TO ENABLE FISHERMEN OR RESEARCHERS TO DETECT,LOCATE, AND QUANTIFY BIOLOGICAL TARGETS WITH VERY HIGH ACCURACY IN SHALLOW WATER. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A METHOD FOR PRODUCING VERY NARROW ACOUSTIC BEAMS WITH VIRTUALLY NO SIDELOBES FROM A SMALL APERTURE PROJECTOR ARRAY. ALSO ...

  2. BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORT FOR MINI-CARS

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE DOWNSIZING OF AUTOMOBILES ON U.S. HIGHWAYS, MINI-CARS HAVE BECOME A MAJOR PART OF THE AUTO POPULATION. THE LIGHT WEIGHT AND HIGH CRUSH RATE OF THESE VEHICLES CAN CAUSEHIGH VELOCITY CHANGE LEVELS WHEN IMPACTING MOST EXISTING BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORTS. THIS INCREASES THE PROBABILI-TY OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTSOF MINI-CARS WHEN IMPACTING LUMI- NAIRE SUPPORTS. CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED WH ...

  4. IN-PLACE AIR PERMEAMETER FOR OPEN-GRADED DRAINAGE LAYERS

    SBC: Geo-systems Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RAPID FIELD TEST IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE PERMEABILITY OF OPEN-GRADED ROAD BASES AND OTHER DRAINAGE LAYERS. THE SAME TEST ALSO SHOULD BE ADAPTABLE TO EVALUATE PERMEABILITIES OF OTHER EXPOSED PAVEMENT LAYERS INCLUDING THOSE COMPOSED OF BITUMINOUS OR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETES, AS AN INDEX TO PERMEATION AND POSSIBLY TO DETERIORATION. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE PERMEABILITY BE EVALUATED THROUGH USE ...

  5. A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO SECURITY CHECKPOINT OPTIMIZATION

    SBC: International Productivity            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH WILL IDENTIFY AND ANALYZE BOTH THE QUANTITATIVEAND QUALITATIVE ASPECTS OF SECURITY CHECKPOINT OPERATIONS. USING INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES, SCREENING OPERATIONS WILL BE BROKEN INTO BASIC ELEMENTS WHICH WILL THEN BE MEASURED AND INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SUCH COMPONENTS AS: - PROCESSING RATES - DISTRIBUTION OF PASSENGER ARRIVALS - BOARDING VOLUMES ...

  6. ADVANCED DE-ICING FLUIDS FOR GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Kohlman Aviation Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE USE OF ADVANCED TYPE II FLUIDS FOR THE DE-ICING/ANTI-ICING OF GENERAL AVIATION (GA) AIRCRAFT WITH TAKEOFF SAFETY SPEEDS (V2) OF GENERALLY LESS THAN 85 KNOTS. TYPE II FLUIDS WILL BE APPLIED TO SEVERAL GA CATEGORY AIRCRAFT. THE ICE PROTECTION CAPABILITY OF THE FLUID WILL BE EVALUATED FOR DIFFERENT FREEZING PRECIPITATION CONDITIONS. THE EFFEC ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. OVERHEAD INFRARED VEHICLE DETECTOR

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THE WIDELY USED BURIED-LOOP VEHICLE DE- TECTOR -- 3 TO 5 YEAR LIFETIME, COSTLY, INCONVENIENT TO MAINTAIN/REPLE, INCOMPATIBLE WITH SOME ROADWAYS, UNRELIABLE ACTIVATION BY SOME VEHICLES -- CAN BE OVERCOME THROUGH THE USE OF OVERHEAD INFRARED VEHICLE DETECTORS. THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH INCLUDE A SURVEY OF APPROPRIATE INFRARED SENSORS AND DEVICE ANALYSIS, D ...

  9. FOR AGRICULTURE AND RANGE

    SBC: Earth Satellite Corpon            Topic: N/A

    NOAA AVHRR DATA HAS PROVIDED USEFUL QUALITATIVE INFORMATION IN AGRICULTURE AND FORESTRY APPLICATIONS. QUANTITATIVE APPLICATIONS OF AVHRR ARE HOWEVER IN THEIR INFANCY. STUDIES BY EARTHSAT PERSONNEL HAVE SHOWN THAT FOR ONE YEAR IN ONE LOCATION CORN YIELD CAN BE QUANTITATIVELY RELATED TO AVHRR VEGETATION INDEX COUNT VALUES. THE PROPOSED STUDIES WILL EXAMINE FURTHER QUANTITATIVE APPLICATIONS OF AVHRR ...

  10. LIGHT EMITTING PAINTS COULD HAVE MANY IMPORTANT APPLICATIONS, ONE OF WHICH IS IMPROVED SAFETY IN TRANSPORTATION.

    SBC: Quantix Corp            Topic: N/A

    LIGHT EMITTING PAINTS COULD HAVE MANY IMPORTANT APPLICATIONS, ONE OF WHICH IS IMPROVED SAFETY IN TRANSPORTATION. THE PAINT IS BASED ON SPECIALLY PREPARED GRANUALS THAT ARE PHOTOLUMINESCENT, ACTIVATED BY INFRATED RADIATION AVAILABLE FROM HEADLIGHTS. IT APPEARS THAT THESE MATERIALS WILL CHARGEUP FROMT THE SUNLIGHT OR NATURAL DAYLIGHT AND WILL STORE VISIBLE LIGHT ENERGY FOR ONE YEAR OR MORE. THE CRIT ...
