  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 ...

  3. Fiber-Optic Arc Excitation Spectrometry for Subsurface Heavy Metal Detection

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

    Site characterization to detect subsurface contamination is of a enormous interest for both public and private applications. Biotronics is proposing to adapt an arc excitation spectrometry technology originally developed for anlaysis of liquid nutrient solutions at NASA to the detection of heavy metals in soils. A preliminary design will be defined that will permit arc excitation of soil adjacent ...

  4. INTEGRATION OF EXPERT SYSTEM FOR PROCESS PLANNING AND FEATURE BASED DESIGNS

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

    ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE/EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNIQUES HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE ABILITY TO ADDRESS COMPLEX REASONING TASKS REQUIRED FOR PROCESS PLANNING. FEATURE-BASED DESIGN THEORY AND PRELIMINARY EFFORTS HAVE SHOWN THE POTENTIAL OF PROVIDING A FUNDAMENTAL MODEL FOR CAPTURE AND MANIPULATION OF DESIGN KNOWLEDGE. HOWEVER, THE TWO TECHNOLOGIES HAVE NOT BEEN SUFFICIENTLY INTEGRATED TO ALLOW DESIGN FEATURES TO ...

  5. 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 ...

  8. High Performance Robust Lightweight Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    At present, the only fuel cell systems that have the capability of achieving high power den W cm-2) are the proton exchange membrane (PEM) and the alkaline fuel cell (AFC) systems. Of these, the PEM system is the leading candidate fuel cell power source for many military and commercial applications. In order to make PEM fuel cell power sources cost-competitive with competing technologies and more ...

  9. Improved Structural Adhesives from Natural Products for High-Moisture Environments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    At present, four classes of structural adhesives (epoxy resins, phenolic resins, acrylic adhesives and urethanes) are commonly employed in applications where the adhesive joint is either totally immersed in salt or fresh water or subject to high levels of moisture while simultaneously experiencing large shear loads. Each of these synthetic polymer formulations suffers from individual disadvantages ...
