  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 ...

  4. STRESSMETER FOR MEASURING DYNAMIC BRIDGE STRESSES

    SBC: Re/spec Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS FOR A COMPACT, PORTABLE SYSTEM CAPABLE OF MEASURING DYNAMIC STRESSES INDUCED BY HEAVY TRUCKS IN THE STRU- TURAL MEMBERS OF BRIDGES. USE OF STATE-OF-OF THE-ART ELEC- TRONIC CIRCUITRY NOW ALLOWS CONSTRUCTION OF A HYBRID ANALOG-DIGITAL INDICATOR THATCAN DISPLAY THE PEAK STRESSES A BRIDGEEXPERIENCES BY USING DATA FROM STRAIN SENSORS ATTACHED TO THE BRIDGE. THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING SUC ...

  6. A RECUPERATOR FOR CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: Almatech            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVOLVES DEVELOPMENT AND VERIFICATION OF THE PERFORMANCE OF A NOVEL HEAT EXCHANGER OPERATING IN THE 98 TO 99 PERCENT THERMAL EFFECTIVENESS RANGE. HEAT EXCHANGERS FOR CRYOCOOLER APPLICATIONS USED IN HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS, REMOTE SENSING, ETC., FREQUENTLY REQUIRE THERMAL EFFECTIVENESS OF OVER 98%. THIS IS DIFFICULT TO ACCOMPLISH,PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF THE EFFECT OF THE LONGITUDINAL THERMAL ...

  7. A NOVEL, INSULATED, DOUBLE-WALLED TUBE DESIGN FOR THERMALLY-ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL, DOUBLE-WALLED, VACUUM-INSULATED TUBE IS PLANNED FOREFFICIENT TRANSMISSION OF HOT WATER OR STEAM FOR ENHANCED THERMAL RECOVERY OF HEAVY OIL FROM DEEP OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS DESIGN IMPROVES THE STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY WHILE P PROVIDING IMPROVED THERMAL INSULATION HAVING A LOW MANUFACTURING COST. PHASE I OF THIS PROGRAM INVOLVES THE DETAILED ANALYSIS, DESIGN, AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE TUBING. A P ...

  8. 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. AN IN-SITU URANIUM ISOTOPE MEASUREMENT FOR USE IN ATOMIC VAPOR LASER ISOTOPE SEPARATION

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN INSTRUMENT IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT THAT WILL QUANTITATIVELY MEASURE ISOTOPIC RATIOS ON A SOLID OR LIQUID SURFACE OF URANIUM (OR OTHER ELEMENTS). THE INSTRUMENT USES A PULSED ION BEAM AT GRAZING INCIDENCE TO KNOCK SURFACE ATOMS OFF IN BILLIARD BALL TYPE COLLISIONS. SOME OF THESE ATOMS ARE IONIZED AND CAN BE FOCUSED THROUGH A HIGH RESOLUTION TIME-OF-FLIGHT MASS SPECTROMETER. A HIGH DUTY CYCLE ALLOWS ...

  10. 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 ...
