  7. AIRFLOW MONITOR AND STALL WARNING DEVICE

    SBC: Maris Worden Aerospace Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. A METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING ATMOSPHERES FOR SPACE LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS GENERALLY ACCEPTED THAT HIGHER PLANTS WILL SERVE AS IMPORTANT COMPONENTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONING AND FOOD PRODUCTION SYSTEMS FOR FUTURE SPACE OR PLANETARY SURFACE HABITATS. BECAUSE OF STRUCTURAL CONSIDERATIONS IT IS LIKELY THAT ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION AND PRESSURE WILL BE RADICALLY DIFFERENT. IN DEFINING GROWTH SYSTEMS FOR ALTEREDATMOSPHERES WE MUST UNDERSTAND HOW PLANTS OPERATE IN GEN ...

  10. A REAL TIME ICE DETECTION SYSTEM

    SBC: Monat Assocs            Topic: N/A

    MODERN AVIATION REQUIRES ALL-WEATHER CAPABILITY. ONE OF THEMAJOR PROBLEMS INVOLVES THE RELIABLE DETECTION OF ICE FORMATION ON WINGS, ENGINES AND ROTORS, AS WELL AS ON AIRCRAFT RUNWAYS. AT PRESENT, NO SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH POSITIVELY DETECTS ICE PER SE, AND NOT MERELY POTENTIAL ICING CONDITIONS. OUR PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A DEVICE WHICH WILL NOT AFFECT THE AERODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF WINGS, ...
