  2. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...

  3. COLLISION AVOIDANCE TECHNIQUE USED BY THE MAJOR RAILROADS OF THE US STILL RELY ON THE ALERTNESS OF THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER TO SEE AND RESPOND TO WARNING SIGNALS DISPLAYED IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND ALONG THE RIGHT-OF-WAY.

    SBC: Expert Systems Engineers            Topic: N/A

    COLLISION AVOIDANCE TECHNIQUE USED BY THE MAJOR RAILROADS OF THE US STILL RELY ON THE ALERTNESS OF THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER TO SEE AND RESPOND TO WARNING SIGNALS DISPLAYED IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND ALONG THE RIGHT-OF-WAY. SO LONG AS THE ENGINEER REMAINS ALERT, THE SYSTEM WORKS WELL, BUT WHEN THE ENGINEER IS NOT QUICK TO PERCEIVE AND REACT TO DANDER SIGNALS, THE SYSTEM FAILS. MAINTAINING ENGINEE ...

  4. STRUCTURES

    SBC: Invocon Consultants            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO MONITOR VIBRATION IN HIGHWAY BRIDGES. IT IS DESIRABLE TO MONITOR MANY POINTS ON THE BRIDGE. THE CURRENT PROBLEM IS THAT SENSORS MUST BE WIRED TO A CENTRAL LOCATION. WIRE IS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL AND TO MOVE. THE SOLUTION IS TO COLLECT SENSOR DATA BY RADIO. A SYSTEM EXISTS THAT ELIMINATES WIRE. IT GATHERS SENSOR DATA TO A CENTRAL LOCATION BY RADIO. THE SYSTEM'S UNIQUE FEATURE IS THA ...
