  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. Cost Effective, Power Efficient, Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More than 52% of U.S. urban highway congestion is a direct result of highway incidents.  Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, cost-effective and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems.  Several solutions have been proposed but none could satisfy requirements of transportation authorities.  Central Signal's research and development, ...

  3. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Microwave measurement of rail distance traveled

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: 081FR3

    Rail vehicle distance traveled measurements don't currently meet the precision requirement of 5ft./mile. An innovative microwave technique is proposed using two X band transceiver assemblies separated by a known distance. Reflected energy from metal objects such as tie-plates or dielectric contrast between ties and rail bed are used as replicate pairs to measure the time passage between transcei ...
