  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 ...

  3. IN SITU INFARED FIBER OPTIC SENSOR FOR NDI CORROSION AND DISBOND DETECTION IN AIRCRAFT JOINTS/FASTENERS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FOSTER-MILLER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL INFARED FIBER OPTIC SENSOR TO NON-DESTRUCTIVELY DETECT CORROSIVE ATTACK AND DISBONDING A BOTH METAL-TO-METAL AND COMPOSITE TO METAL JOINTS AND FASTENERS IN AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES. THIS NEW INFRARED NDI SYSTEM WILL BE A POWERFUL ANALYTICAL TOOL TO DETECT THE ONSET OF DISBONDING AND INTRUSION OF CORROSIVE ELEMENTS INTO THE JOINT LONG BEFORE IT BECOMES VISIBLE B ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. HTSC SUPERCONDUCTING SHIELDS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF SHIELDING LARGE AREAS OF THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT FROM THE RESIDUAL MAGNETIC FIELD EMANATING FROM THE DRIVE AND LEVITATION MAGNETS IS ADDRESSED USING AN ACTIVE/PASSIVE HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING SHIELD. THE LARGE AREA SHIELDS REQUIRED BY MAGLEV AND THE RESIDUAL FIELD LEVEL MAKE PASSIVE SHIELDING PROHIBITIVE. ACTIVE SHIELDING WITH AN ARRAY OF WATER COPPER CANCELLATION COILS WI ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. NDI OF COMPOSITE STRUCTURAL MATERIALS BY GAMMA SCATTER SENSING

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    WITHOUT EFFECTIVE NONDESTRUCTIVE INSPECTION (NDI) MENTHODS, STRUCTURES EMPLOYING COMPOSITE MATERIALS MUST RELY ON LARGE DESIGN MARGINS OF SFETY AND EXPENSIVE INDIVIDUAL COMPONENT PROOF TESTING. OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO REMEDY THIS WITH GAMMA RAY SCATTERING COUNTING, A FORMOF RADIOMETRY WIDELY USED TO MEASURE THICKNESS AND COMPOSI- TION OF EMPHASIS ON DEVELOPING A PORTABLE S ...
