  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. PROGRAMMABLE REFLECTANCE OF ARTIFICIAL FLAWS IN RAIL MATERIALS

    SBC: REINHART & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAMMABLE DEFECT SIMULATOR IS NEEDED TO TEST ULTRASONIC RAIL FLAW DETECTION SYSTEMS. CALIBRATION STANDARDS CAN BE DEVELOPED WITH VARIABLE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS ACCORDING TO A PREDESCRIBED SCHEME THAT SIMULATES COMMONLY-OCCURRING FLAWS (CROSS-HEAD FATIGUE CRACKS) IN RAILWAY SYSTEM RAILS. THIS PROJECT WOULD DEVELOP A METHOD OF ALTERING THE EFFECTIVE REFLECTIVITY OF A SOLID-GAS INTERFACE THRO ...

  6. NETWORK PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE NETWORK PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE

    SBC: Apeiron            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED INNOVATION CONSISTS OF A PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENT WHERE EXECUTION TAKES PLACE THROUGHOUT A (PERHAPS HETEROGENEOUS) NETWORK OF COMPUTING DEVICES. FROM THE PROGRAMMER'S POINT OF VIEW, THE LANGUAGE APPEARS AS AN ICONIC OBJECT FLOW LANGUAGE (SUCH AS PROGRAPH) WITH A FEW EXTENSIONS FOR ATTACHING SALIENCE TO SELECTED PROCESSES. NOKNOWLEDGE OF THE NETWORK ARCHITECTURE OR PROTOCOL IS REQUIRED ...

  7. CHEMILUMINESCENT DEOXYOLIGONUCLEOTIDE PROBES FOR THE RAPID DETECTION OF INTACT COLIFORM BACTERIA AND TOTAL BACTERIA

    SBC: Bio-technical Resources, L.p.            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE BACTERIAL DISEASES ARE FREQUENTLY TRANSMITTED THROUGH CONTAMINATED WATER, THE DETECTION OF MICROBIOLOGICALCONTAMINATION IS IMPORTANT, TO ENSURE SANITARY WATER SUPPLIES. CURRENT TESTS ARE LABOR INTENSIVE AND TAKE SEVERAL DAYS TO CONFIRM CONTAMINATION LEVELS. THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A UNIQUE, RAPID, WATER-QUALITY TEST FOR BACTERIA. PHASE I FOCUSES ON THE DEVELOPMENT ...

  8. AN ON-LINE MICROBIOLOGICAL ANALYZER

    SBC: Biotronics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MICROBIOLOGICAL MONITORING WILL BE A CRITICAL FUNCTION IN THE BIOMASS-PROCESSING REACTORS OF THE NASA CONTROLLED ECOLOGICAL LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEM (CELSS). MEASUREMENT OF CELLDENSITY AND CELL ACTIVITY IN SOME REACTORS WILL ALLOW FOR THE AUTOMATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF BIOCHEMICAL PROCESSES WITHOUT THE NEED FOR EXPERIENCED SKILLED PERSONNEL. IN OTHER REACTORS, MICROBIOLOGICAL DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZA ...

  9. AUTOMATION OF REQUIREMENTS DEVELOPMENT UTILIZING A DESK TOP COMPUTER

    SBC: Bruce G. Jackson & Assocs.            Topic: N/A

    NASA IS CONTINUALLY DEVELOPING NEW SYSTEMS RANGING FROM COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO TEST FACILITIES TO LARGE SPACECRAFT. EACH SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT IS INITIATED AND CONTROLLED THROUGH THE USE OF REQUIREMENTS SPECIFICATIONS. THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN AUTOMATED TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION SYSTEM FOR A DESK TOP COMPUTER. THE SYSTEM WILL BE PROTOTYPED TO DEVELOP AND TEST CON ...
