  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 ...

  5. A RELIABLE LOCOMITIVE CAB ALERTER

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED FOR LOCOMOTIVE CAB ALERTERS THAT CAN BE RETROFITTED TO ALERTER SYSTEMS ALREADY IN SERVICE. THE CONCEPTS INCLUDE A TOUCH SCREEN, WHICH REQUIRES TOUCHING A TARGET TO RESET THE TIMER OR TO RESPOND TO THE ALERTER LIGHT PROMPT. THE INITIAL LOCATION OF THE TARGET ON THE SCREEN IS AUTOMATICALLY SELECTED AT RANDOM. ANOTHER CONCEPT IS THE USE OF A TELEPHONE KEYPAD WITH LCD, WH ...

  6. DISTRIBUTED-NETWORK PARALLEL COMPUTING FOR ADAPTIVE METHODOLOGIES IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    A GENERAL-PURPOSE, SOLUTION-ADAPTIVE, FINITE-ELEMENTS CODE THAT TREATS BROAD CLASSES OF INCOMPRESSIBLE FLOWS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. THE CODE EMPLOYS H-ADAPTIVE AND P-ENRICHMENT ALGORITHMS THAT REFINE THE STRUCTURE OF THE MESH TO OPTIMIZE COMPUTATIONS. THE FULL POTENTIAL FOR USE OF SUCH SMART ALGORITHMS IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS APPEARS TO LIE IN PARALLEL COMPUTATIONS PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF THE EX ...

  7. IN SITU SURFACE ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS/PROCESS CONTROL AT MILLITORR PRESSURE DURING SUPERCONDUCTOR FILM DEPOSITION

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE HIGH PRESSURE LIMITS OF A NEW PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUE FOR SURFACE ELEMENTAL AND ISOTOPIC ANALYSIS ARE BEING EXPLORED. THE TECHNIQUE SHOULD BE USEFUL IN THE MILLITORR PRESSURE REGIME, THUS ALLOWING MEASUREMENT OF THIN FILM STOICHIOMETRY DURING GROWTH AND PROCESSING. THE PRESENT RESEARCH IS FOCUSING ON ANALYSIS OF YTTRIUM-BARIUM-COPPER-OXYGEN (YBCO) SUPERCONDUCTOR FILMS SUBJECTED TO HIGH PRESSURES ...

  8. NONDESTRUCTIVE MEASUREMENT OF RESIDUAL STRESSES IN POWERPLANT PIPING WELDS USING MAGNETOELASTIC TECHNIQUES

    SBC: KARTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD TO MEASURE NONDESTRUCTIVELY THE BIAXIAL RESIDUAL STRESSES IN FERRITIC PIPING WELDS WITHIN FOSSIL-FIRED AND NUCLEAR-POWERED ELECTRICITY GENERATING PLANTS IS PLANNED. THE METHOD USES THE MAGNETICALLY INDUCED VELOCITY CHANGES OF ULTRASONIC WAVES TO DETERMINE THE STRESSES. IT IS BEING SHOWN THAT THE METHOD CAN DETERMINE THE ABSOLUTE VALUES, SIGN, AND ORIENTATION OF THE AXIAL AND CIRCUMFERENTI ...

  9. SITE-SPECIFIC ENDONUCLEASES FOR HUMAN GENOME MAPPING

    SBC: PROMEGA CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR LIMITATION IN CURRENT LARGE SCALE GENOME MAPPING METHODOLOGY IS THAT FEW TOOLS EXIST FOR GENERATING SPECIFIC DNA FRAGMENTS IN THE MEGABASE SIZE RANGE. THIS PHASE I RESEARCH IS EXAMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A FAMILYOF INTRON-ENCODED SITE-SPECIFIC ENDONUCLEASES CAPABLE OF GENERATING DNA FRAGMENTS 2 TO 100 MEGABASES IN SIZE BY USINGTHE FOLLOWING STEPS: (1) DEVELOP METHODS FOR EXPRES ...
