  1. LONGITUDINAL STRESS (FORCE) MEASUREMENT OF RAIL UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Magnasonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN 1982, A SPECIAL COMMITTEE OF THE NMAB ISSUED A REPORT ON THE NONDESTRUCTIVE METHODS THAT MIGHT BE USED TO MEASURE THELOGITUDINAL FORCE IN INSTALLED RAILS. IT SHOWED THAT THE ACOUSTO-ELASTIC EFFECT WHICH INFERS THE STRESS FROM MEASURE MENTS OF SMALL SHIFTS IN THE VELOCITY OF SOUND WAS PROMISINGBUT DIFFICULT TO IMPLEMENT BECAUSE VARIATIONS IN THE METALLURGICAL STRUCTURE OF THE METAL AND UNCERTAIN ...

  2. MINIATURIZED HEMO-AND PERITONEAL DIALYSIS MACHINE

    SBC: ASH ACCESS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO PRODUCE A PORTABLE, MINIATURIZED DIALYSIS MACHINE WHICH IS SIMPLE, SAFE, AND SYMPTOM-FREE IN OPERATION. THIS DIALYSIS MACHINE SHOULD ALLOW THE AVERAGE HEMO-OR PERITONEAL DIALYSIS PATIENT TO PERFORM DIALYSIS BY HIMSELF AT HOME, UNASSISTED. THE MACHINE WILL BE SMALL (12 LBS.), PORTABLE, AND TOTALLY SELF-CONTAINED (WITHOUT NEED FOR CONNECTION TO WATER SUPP ...

  3. ANGULATION MECHANISM FOR CATHETERS AND ANGIOSCOPES

    SBC: Cri Ltd            Topic: N/A

    MEDICAL SCIENCE HAS PROGRESSED TO THE POINT THAT CATHETERS AND ANGIOSCOPES CAN BE USED FOR DIRECT VISUALIZATION OF THE INTERIOR SURFACES OF THE HEART AND CORONARIES. THE PRIMARY HINDRANCE TO FURTHER PROGRESS IN THIS FIELD IS THE LACK OF A MINIATURIZED ANGULATION SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT SUGGESTS THAT PROPRIETARY MATERIALS BE INCORPORATED INTO THE TIP OF A CATHETER OR ANGIOSCOPE TO MAKE THEM MA ...

  5. METAL VALUE RECOVERY FROM ALLOY CHEMICAL MILLING WASTE

    SBC: Montana Environment Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PROPOSAL IS PRESENTED OUTLINING A RESEARCH STUDY DIRECTED TOWARD TREATMENT OF CHEMICAL MILLING WASTE FOR RECOVERY OF COBALT, CHROMIUM, AND NICKEL. THE APPLICATION OF A NEW TECH NOLOGY IS PROPOSED THAT IS SELECTIVE AND COST EFFECTIVE FOR RECOVERY OF THESE THREE ELEMENTS. THE PROCESS IS ON OF SOL SOLUTION PURIFICATION BY SELECTIVE PHOSPHATE PRECIPITATION. THE PRECIPITATION IS SELECTIVE TOWARD TRIV ...

  6. ADIABATIC WANKEL TYPE ROTARY ENGINES

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF R & D WORK HAS BEEN DONE FOR THE WANKEL ROTARY ENGINE APPLICATION TO AUTOMOBILES, PLANES, ETC. RESULTING IN SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS. THE PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY AND DURABILITY THAT THE WANKEL HAS DEMONSTRATED, HOWEVER, FALLS SHORT OF THE POPULAR DIESEL ENGINE. THE ADIABATIC, TURBOCOMPOUND CONCEPT THAT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED FOR THE DIESEL IS THOUGHT TO BE MORE BENEFICIAL TO T ...

  7. DEAD RECKONING OPTOELECTRONIC INTELLIGENT DOCKING SYSTEM (DROID)

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO STUDY A NEW CONCEPT FOR THE AUTOMATION OF STS OPERATIONS EMPLOYING A SYNERGISTIC COMBINATION OF EXISTING OPTOELECTRONIC SUBSYSTEMS INTEGRATED BY MICROPROCESSOR INTELLIGENCE. THE DROID IS A ROBOT PILOT WHICH UTILIZES A LASER RANGEFINDER, A LASER INTERFEROMETER, A LASER DIODE ARRAY, A QUADRANT RECEIVER AND AN OPTICAL CONTRAST VIDEO TRACKER TO PRODUCE PRECISE INFORMATION O ...

  8. MINIATURE INFRARED DATA ACQUISITION AND TELEMETRY (MIRDAT) SYSTEM

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO STUDY A NEW CONCEPT FOR THE MINIATURIZATION OF DATA ACQUISITION AND TELEMETRY UNITS FOR APPLICATION IN WIND TUNNEL INSTRUMENTATION. THE PROPOSED MIRDAT SYSTEM INCLUDES TELEMETRY TRANSMITTER UNITS (TTUS) WHICH COLLECT SIXTEEN CHANNELS OF ANALOG DATA, THREE CHANNELS OF PULSED DIGITAL DATA AND FOUR BINARY STATUS BITS. THE TTU TRANSMITS DATA BY MEANS OF FREE SPACE, PULSED I ...

  9. WIDELY TUNABLE GAS LASER FOR REMOTE SENSING OF THE STRATOSPHERE

    SBC: Lasertechnics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    REMOTE SENSING AND RANGE-RESOLVED MEASUREMENTS OF ATMOSPHERIC GASES, AEROSOLS, BIOLOGIC SPECIES, PHYSICAL PARAMETERS OF ATMOSPHERE AND OCEANS, AND GEOLOGIC MINERALS WITH COHERENT LIGHT PULSES IS AN EMERGING TECHNOLOGY WHICH IS ONLY CONSTRAINED BY THE AVAILABILITY OF SUITABLE NARROWBAND TUNABLE LASER SOURCES. THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED, COMPACT MULTIGAS LASER FOR AIRBORNE ...

  10. A PULSED CO2 LASER FOR SPACE APPLICATION IN REMOTE ATMOSPHERIC SENSING

    SBC: Pulse Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SPACE QUALIFIABLE PULSED CO2 LASER SYSTEM FOR REMOTE SENSING OF THE ATMOSPHERE IS A DIFFICULT PROBLEM MADE MORE DIFFICULT BECAUSE OF PRESENT PULSED CO2 (TEA) LASER CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS HIGH OPERATING VOLTAGE, LOW EFFICIENCY, AND RELATIVELY SHORT LIFE EXPECTANCY UNDER SEALED CONDITIONS. THIS PROJECT EXAMINES THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING A UNIQUE LOW-VOLTAGE, COMPACT, EFFICIEN ...
