  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. ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED GAS CHROMATOGRAPH

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF MICROBORE CAPILLARY COLUMNS FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY PROMISES TO FACILITATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INSTRUMENT CAPABLE OF RESOLVING AS MANY AS 15 COMPONENTS PERSECOND. THUS, MANY ANALYSES COULD BE COMPLETED IN JUST A FEW SECONDS PERMITTING, FOR THE FIRST TIME, REAL-TIME ANALYSIS BY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY. TO TRANSLATE THIS CONCEPT INTO A PRACTICAL INSTRUMENT, WE SHALL HAVE TO REDESIGN EVERY COM ...

  7. INSTRUMENTATION FOR HIGH RESOLUTION ELECTRON LOSS SPECTROSCOPY FOR VIBRATIONAL ANALYSIS OF ROUGH PRACTICAL SURFACES

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRON LOSS SPECTROSCOPY FOR VIBRATIONAL ANALYSIS IS AN ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE BEST SUITED FOR ADSORBATES ON POLISHEDMETALLIC SURFACES. IONWERKS PROPOSES A DEPARTURE FROM THE STANDARD INSTRUMENTATION WHICH ALLOW VIBRATIONAL MEASUREMENTS ON PRACTICAL SURFACES SUCH AS ROUGH METALLIC OXIDES. OUR TECHNIQUE DERIVES INCREASED SENSITIVITY AND VIBRATIONAL RESOLUTION FROM USING LOW ENERGY ELECTRONS IN A W ...

  8. KNOWLEDGE BASED INFORMATION MODEL INTEGRATION

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTEGRATED DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS IS WIDELY RECOGNIZED AS A CRITICAL COMPONENT IN THE EFFORT TO IMPROVE THE COMPETITIVE POSTURE OF AMERICAN INDUSTRIES. A KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF THESE COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS LIES IN THE ROBUSTNESS OF THE INFORMATION INTEGRATION SUPPORTED BY THE SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, THE INDIVIDUAL METHODS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT THE DEFINITION ...

  9. A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN ENVIRONMENT FOR MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS A RECOGNIZED PROBLEM THAT CURRENT COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN (CAD) AND COMPUTER AIDED ENGINEERING (CAE) INTERFACES(1) LIMIT PRODUCTIVITY OF HUMAN DRAFTSPERSONS, (2) DENY CONCEPT SUPPORT TO PRODUCT DEFINERS, AND (3) INHIBIT USE OF THESE SYSTEMS FOR DELIVERY OF KNOWLEDGE BASED CONCURRENT ENGINEERING SUPPORT. THESE PROBLEMS LIMIT INITIATIVES TO BOTH PRODUCE BETTER FIRST DESIGNS AND TO REDUCE THE PRO ...

  10. PROTECTED GRAPHITE MATERIALS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE INDUSTRIALAPPLICATIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE UNIQUE PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES EXHIBITED BY GRAPHITE MAKES IT AN ATTRACTIVE ENGINEERING MATERIAL FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, THE STRONG CHEMICAL REACTIVITY OF GRAPHITE IN OXIDIZING ENVIRONMENTS AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES REQUIRES THAT GRAPHITESURFACES BE PROTECTED IN SUCH APPLICATIONS. A NEED EXISTS: FOR MODIFYING THE SURFACE CHEMISTRY OF GRAPHITE, FOR DEVEL ...
