  1. DYNAMIC GPS ATTITUDE DETERMINING SYSTEM FOR MARINE APPLICATIONS

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

    A 3-DIMENSIONAL ATTITUDE SENSOR WHICH USES GPS CARRIER PHASEINTERFEROMETRY IS PROPOSED FOR ANALYSIS AND CONCEPT TESTING IN PHASE I, AND PROTOTYPING IN PHASE II. THE RESULTING SENSOR WILL BE ACCURATE AT ANY LATITUDE. ADROIT SYSTEMS PROPOSES TO ENHANCE ITS SUCCESSFUL 2-DIMENSIONAL, STATIC GPSATTITUDE DETERMINING SYSTEM (ADS) SO THAT IT WILL OPERATE UNDER DYNAMIC CONDITIONS WHILE MEASURING 3-DIMENSIO ...

  2. AN INNOVATIVE OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM FOR HIGH SPEED GUIDED GROUND TRANSPORTATION

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

    AN INNOVATIVE OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM BASED ON A RAIL-GUIDED PROPELLER-DRIVEN POD CONTAINING A MICROWAVE RADAR SENSOR IS PROPOSED. THE SENSOR POD WILL TRAVEL A FEW MILES AHEAD OF THE HIGH SPEED TRAIN OR MAGLEV VEHICLE, DETECT POTENTIAL OBSTACLES, AND ENACT AN APPROPRIATE WARNING OR AVOIDANCE PROCEDURE. THE PROPOSED OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM HAS MANY HIGHLY DESIRABLE FEATURES INCLUDING: A VERY LO ...

  3. SHIP MANEUVERING SIMULATION FOR PASSAGE PLANNING AND TRAINING

    SBC: Advanced Marine Enterprises,            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH EFFORT IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SHIP MANEUVERING SIMULATION SOFTWARE PACKAGE FOR SHIPBOARD USE IN MANEUVERING ASSESSMENT, PASSAGE PLANNING AND TRAINING. THE SOFTWARE MUST OPERATE IN A STAND ALONE MODE AND/OR INTEGRATED WITH THE SHIP'S NAVIGATION AND CONTROL SYSTEM. THE PHASE 1 EFFORT INCLUDES THE INITIAL DETERMINATION OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS SOFTWARE PAC ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. AN ACOUSTIC PLATE MODE DNA BIOSENSOR

    SBC: BIODE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS DEVELOPING A NEW SOLID-STATE BIOSENSOR TECHNOLOGY FOR BIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS. THIS TECHNOLOGY IS BASED ON THE MERGING OF TWO RELATIVELY DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGIES: NUCLEIC ACID PROBES (DNA HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGY) WITH ACOUSTIC PLATE MODE (APM) MICROSENSORS. RECENT ADVANCES IN THE DESIGN AND OPERATION OF APM DEVICES HAVE DEMONSTRATED A DNA HYBRIDIZATION SENSOR PRINCIPLE WITH EXCELLEN ...

  6. FEASIBILITY OF AN ULTRA-CENTRIFUGE FOR DRYING COMMINUTED DEEP CLEANED COAL

    SBC: Coal Tech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEEP CLEANING PROCESSES NOW UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR COAL MOST OFTEN INVOLVE PULVERIZING AND THE USE OF A LIQUID PROCESS MEDIUM. IF THE VERY FINE DEEP CLEANED COAL IS TO BE USED IN A DRY FORM, A SATISFACTORY DRYING TECHNOLOGY IS VITAL. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE INDICATED A SUBSTANTIAL PROBABILITY OF SUCCESS IF THE ULTRAHIGH LEVELS OF CENTRIFUGE GRAVITY ARE COMBINED WITH THE CENTRIFUGAL DECANTING/FI ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. MODULATOR SYSTEMS FOR HEAVY ION FUSION ACCELERATORS

    SBC: Fm Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT EMPLOYS A TWO-PART DESIGN STUDY FOR HIGH CURRENT, HEAVY ION, RECIRCULATING INDUCTION ACCELERATORS FORINERTIAL FUSION INVOLVING: (1) MODULATOR CIRCUIT DESIGN FOR RECIRCULATING ACCELERATORS, BASED PARTICULARLY ON RECENT ADVANCES IN HIGH POWER SWITCH TECHNOLOGY, AND (2) OPTIMUM RECIRCULATOR DESIGN TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF ADVANCES IN THE SWITCHES AND CIRCUITS. RECENT DOE STUDIES HAVE SHOW ...

  10. A BRIGHT SOURCE OF MULTIPLY-CHARGED HEAVY IONS

    SBC: Fm Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH AIMS TO DEVELOP AN IMPROVED SOURCE OF MULTIPLY-CHARGED IONS FOR HEAVY-ION INERTIAL FUSION AND OTHER APPLICATIONS THAT REQUIRE VERY HIGH BRIGHTNESS. A CONVENTIONAL GAS-DISCHARGE SOURCE IS PLANNED THAT DEPENDS ON THE COMBINATION OF TWO ADDITIONAL NOVEL FEATURES. FIRST, THE INITIAL DENSE HOT PLASMA GAS GENERATED FROM A HIGH PRESSURE MICROCAPILLARY DISCHARGE IS FURTHER HEATED BY A LASER ...
