  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 ...

  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 ...

  7. 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 ...
