  6. RUNWAYS

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RUNWAY-IMPLANTABLE ELECTRONIC SENSOR IS PROPOSED FOR MEASUREMENT OF ICE ACCUMULATION ON AIRPORT RUNWAYS AND NAVIGATION AID STRUCTURES. THE SENSOR OPERATES BY MEASURING PHASE AND FREQUENCY RESOLVED DIFFERENTIAL ELECTRIC FIELD FLUCTUATIONS WITHIN AN AIR/ICE DIELECTRIC LAYER IN RESPONSE TO AN APPLIED VOLTAGE WAVEFORM ON A RUNWAY-IMPLANTED INSUL ATED SENSOR PLATE. THE SIGNIFICANT FREQUENCY DEPENDENC ...

  8. GPS RELATIVE NAVIGATION PRECISION APPROACH FEASIBILITY RESEARCH

    SBC: Overlook Systems Technologies            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT NATIONAL AIRSPACE NAVIGATION REQUIRES MULTIPLE NAVIGATION AIDS TO SUPPORT EN ROUTE, NON-PRECISION APPROACH,AND PRECISION APPROACH AND LANDING. MULTIPLE NAVIGATION SYSTEMS ARE EXPENSIVE TO MAINTAIN AND OPERATE. THIS EXPENSELIMITS THE AVAILABILITY OF PRECISION APPROACH AND LANDING SERVICES PRIMARILY TO MINOR REGIONAL AIRPORTS. UNAIDED GPS RECEIVERS WILL SOON BE ABLE TO MEET EN ROUTE AND NON- ...

  9. URBAN TRANSIT COST RECOVERY FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: Williams-kuebelbeck & Assc Inc            Topic: N/A

    URBAN TRANSIT IMPROVEMENTS ENHANCE THE VALUE OF THE PROPERTY THEY SERVE. TRADITIONAL URBAN TRANSIT FINANCING TECHNIQUES NEGLECT THIS POTENTIAL SOURCE OF REVENUE. BENEFIT ASSESSMENT DISTRICTS AND IMPACT MITIGATION FEES, BASED ON CONCEPTS ORIGINALLY DEVISED FOR MINOR IMPROVEMENTS (EG. SIDEWALKS), HAVE BEEN APPLIED EXPERIMENTALLY TO URBAN TRANSIT, BUT DO NOT GENERATE THE MAJOR FUNDING URBAN TRANSIT R ...
