  1. A COMPACT ACCELERATOR-BASED NEUTRON SOURCE FOR BAGGAGE INTERROGATION

    SBC: Accsys Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF THERMAL NEUTRONS AS A TOOL FOR BAGGAGE INSPECTIONIS AN ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE, WITH A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM CURRENTLY BEING TESTED FOR AIRPORT FEASIBILITY AS AN EXPLOSIVE DETECTION DEVICE. THIS SYSTEM COULD POSSIBLY BE MODIFIED FOR INDIVIDUAL BAGGAGE IDENTIFICATION THROUGH THE USE OF IMAGING OR ACTIVATION DETECTION OF SUITABLE TAGS. HOWEVER, FEASIBILITY TESTING OF THIS CONCEPT AND THE COMMERC ...

  2. AN AUTOMATED INJURY CODING PROGRAM

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    WITHIN THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT NEED TO PROVIDE ACCIDENT INVESTIGATORS WITH ADVANCED COMPUTER BASED TOOLS THAT CAN ASSIST IN THE ANALYSIS OF ACCIDENT DATA. IN PARTICULAR, AN "EXPERT SYSTEM" THAT COULD INTERPRET THE VARIOUS SOURCES OF ACCIDENT DATA AND AUTOMATICALLY CODE THESE IN ACCORDANCE WITH VARIOUS INJURY CODING SCHEMES, WOULD BE OF SIGNIFICANT ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. SHADOWGRAPH ENHANCEMENT

    SBC: Astrophysics Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD OF AUTOMATED OPERATOR ASSISTANCE FOR SECURITY X_RAYMACHINE OPERATORS IS DEVELOPED AND EVALUATED. THE METHOD ISBASED ON ANALYSIS OF IMAGE AREAS SUFFICIENTLY DENSE TO POS- SIBLY CONTAIN A THREAT. BOTH METALLIC THREATS SUCH AS GUNS AND NONMETALLIC THREATS SUCH AS EXPLOSIVES ARE STUDIED.

  5. ROAD TESTS AND EVALUATION TO DETERMINE EFFECTIVENESS OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENT PREVENTION SONIC DEVICE TO IMPROVE SAFETY OF MOTOCYCLISTS AND SCHOOL BUS OCCUPANTS

    SBC: Computer Sonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN 1985, 4570 MOTRCYCLISTS AND 24 SCHOOL BUS OCCUPANTS WERE KILLED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS. THE TOTAL SOCIETAL COST OF VEHICLE ACCIDENTS IN THE UNITED STATES IS ABOUT 30 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR. REDUCING THE VEHICLE TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS BY10% WILL RESULT IN THE NATIONAL WEALTH BY 3 BILLION DOLLARS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE EFFECTIVENESS OF RECENTLY DEVELOPED AND BUITL PROTOTYPES OF ...

  7. EXPLOSIVES DETECTION WITH A HAND-HELD FOURIER TRANSFORM ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETER

    SBC: Femtometrics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXPLOSIVE DETECTION CAPABILITIES AT MOST AIRPORTS CONSIST OF MAGNETOMETERS AND X-RAY EQUIPMENT THAT WERE DESIGNED TO DETECT HANDGUNS. U.S. PUBLIC LAW 101-604 WAS ENACTED AFTER THE PAN AM 103 INCIDENT WHICH DICTATES THAT IN ADDITION TO CARRY-ON LUGGAGE, CHECKED BAGS, MAIL AND CARGO MUST BE MONITORED PRIOR TO BEING LOADED ONTO AN AIRCRAFT. THE CANDIDATE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIESMUST ALSO BE TESTED BY A ...

  8. CRITICAL SECTOR DETECTOR TOOL

    SBC: Iat            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PHASE I WORK WILL DEVELOP A CRITICAL SECTOR DETECTOR TOOL CONCEPT THAT WORKS. THE TOOL WILL EVALUATE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER WORKLOAD. IT WILL ANALYZE THE TASK REQUIREMENTS OF HUMAN CONTROLLERS, CALCULATE WORKLOAD FOR THE VARIOUS CONTROLLER POSITIONS OF A SECTOR TEAM, AND COMPARE WORKLOAD ESTIMATES WITH SATURATION LIMITS TO IDENTIFY POTENTIAL OVERLOADS. IT WOULD ALLOW AIR TRAFFIC CONTR ...

  9. 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 ...
