  1. Low Cost Night Vision System for High Speed Vessel Operations

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    A concept for a low cost, high quality night vision system for use by coxswains and crew members during night intercepts that is capable of providing the visual acuity, depth perception and situational awareness necessary for high-speed maneuvers is a described. It allows the operator to see the sea state at night, safely maneuver a high speed boat and pursue covert intercepts. The helmet-mounte ...

  2. Low-Cost Night Vision System for High-speed Vessel Operations

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    On this program, we will design, fabricate and test of a novel wide field-of-view night-vision system for use by coxswains and crewmembers during night intercepts. The system is capable of providing the visual acuity, depth perception and situational awareness necessary for high-speed boat maneuvers and allows the operator to see the sea at night, safely maneuver a high-speed boat and pursue cove ...

  3. Inertial Navigation Safety System for General Aviation Aircraft

    SBC: Paper Pilot Research, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This project offers an innovative inertial navigation safety system for general aviation use. The device is intended to provide dead-reckoning navigation information during unexpected and extended duration GPS service outages. The navigation algorithm will rely on a nonlinear stochastic filtering method. The specific innovation is that a priori information regarding the aircraft state is used t ...

  4. Utilization of Native Grass and Forb Meadows as a Source for Native Seed

    SBC: Solis Environmental            Topic: N/A

    Mandates to use native wildflower and grass seed began in 1987 with the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act and have been reinforced by two Executive Orders. Current demand for native seed exceeds the supply therefore the need exists to develop additional native seed sources.

  5. NESSI (New England Shipwreck Survey Initiative) Geographic Information System (GIS)

    SBC: Stefan Claesson & Associates            Topic: N/A

    Submerged archaeological sites contain a significant part of our historical legacy-one that is increasingly threatened by development, vandalism and natural forces. In recognition of that legacy, the New England Shipwreck Survey Initiative (NESSI) has been planned in order to identify and preserve the maritime archaeological resources of the region. A computerized database, specifically a Geogra ...

  6. Active Automated Diagnostic System for Aircrafts

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aircraft wire damage can be caused by aging, maintenance, vibration, exposure to moisture, and many other factors. However, current wire maintenance and inspection methods are often insufficient to detect these frequent problems. Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop an aircraft wire maintenance system that detects wiring problems and analyzes the type of fault. This system, called Active Aut ...

  7. Bluetooth Tire Failure Warning Systems

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The public awareness of recent auto fatalities has brought to the forefront the danger associated with tread separation tire failures. Current tires and vehicles do not have a means of warning the operator of imminent tire failure. If a system were implemented to provide such a warning to the operator, action could be taken to prevent a potentially disastrous accident. A design team led by Luna ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
