  1. "An Object Oriented Network Data Model for Transportation GIS"

    SBC: Gis/trans, Ltd            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1996 Department of Transportation
  2. "MAGLEV OPTICAL DETECTION OF OBSTACLES (MODO)"

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE REALIZATION OF SAFE, HIGH-SPEED MAGLEV OR STEEL WHEEL GROUND TRANSPORTATION WILL REQUIRE A RELIABLE SYSTEM TO DETECT OBSTACLES IN THE GUIDEWAY AT A CONSIDERABLE DISTANCE. REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE ALL-WEATHER OPERATION, DAY TIME AND NIGHT TIME OPERATION, AND THE DETECTION OF OBSTACLES AROUND THE GUIDEWAY CURVE (NOT IN LINE OF SIGHT). IN ADDITION THE SYSTEM MUST BE SAFE FOR PASSENGERS ON THE TRAIN, ...

  4. A Novel Sensor & Diagnostic System for High Speed Composite Flywheels

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the development of a novel inductive/dielectric sensor-based composite flywheel diagnostic system for high rotational speed applications such as locomotive drivetrain energy storage. The proposed diagnostic system will combine composite flywheel strength and fatigue models developed by SatCon Technology Corp. with innovative sensor and data processing technology developed ...

  5. AEROSOL CONCENTRATION BY SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATOR

    SBC: David Gordon Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FAA AVIATION SECURITY HAS EXPRESSED A NEED FOR TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE INCREASED SENSITIVITY/RESPONSE TO AIRBORNE FORMS OF EXPLOSIVES. THE TECHNOLOGIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATION (SCAEP) HAVE CAPABILITIES IN CONCENTRATING THE CONTAMINANTS IN LARGE VOLUMES OF AIR INTO SMALL VOLUMES OF LIQUID WITH INCREASED DETECTION CAPABILITY. AN R & D PROGRAM TO DEFINE CAPT ...

  6. Automated Production of Composite Energy Absorbing Utility Poles

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites, Kaman Sciences and Dr. Malcolm Ray of the University of Iowa propose to investigate the design of energy absorbing utility poles made from composite materials. This team has considerable experience in the multiple technologies needed to successfully complete the proposed program, including design of high performance composite products for automated production and design, analysi ...

  7. Chemical-Free Deicing- A Systems Approach

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

    This proposal describes an innovative approach to non-chemical deicing of aircraft which focuses on new technology which could provide revolutionary improvement in the performance of a relatively mature deicing technique. This combined systems approach could be readily incorporated into existing aircraft and ground support equipment. We propose to develop a permanent anti-icing surface treatment ...

  8. FIBER OPTIC BASED SENSOR SYSTEMS FOR TURBINE ENGINES

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTRA PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN INNOVATIVE SET OF FIBER OPTIC SENSORS SUITABLE FOR USE IN MONITORING COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES. THE SENSOR SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE A COMMON ELECTRO-OPTIC TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER/SIGNAL PROCESSOR (EO MODULE) AND FIBER OPTIC LINK. THREE DIFFERENT SENSOR HEADS WILL BE DEMONSTRATED WHICH WILL MEASURE ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT/PRESSURE, VIBRATION, AND TEMPERATURE. THE SENSOR ...

  9. HIGH-SPEED SWITCHES FOR MAGLEV VEHICLES

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

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP SWITCHES CAPABLE OF RAPID OPERATION AT MAXIMUM VEHICLE SPEEDS FOR MAGLEV SYSTEMS WITH DIFFICULT TOPOLOGIES. MAGLEV SYSTEMS REQUIRE SWITCHES CAPABLE OF ENABLING ENTRY AND EXIT FROM THE MAIN GUIDEWAY AT HIGH SPEED (UP TO 134 M/S) I ORDER TO MAINTAIN GUIDEWAY CAPACITY. SOME VEHICLE/GUIDEWAY CONFIGURATIONS ARE NOT WELL SUITED TO IMPLEMENTING A HIGH SPEED SWI ...

  10. HYBRID METHOD FOR ASSESSMENT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL PROFICIENCY MAINTENANCE.

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO IDENTIFY THE EFFECT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL ON REGAINING AND MAINTAINING FLYING SKILLS. BY COGNITIVE REHEARSAL (CR) WE MEAN ACTIVITIES PERFORMED BY THE FAA INSPECTOR DURING FLIGHT PROFICIENCY CHECKS SUCH AS CHECKLIST VERIFICATION, VERIFICATION OF ABNORMAL PROCEDURE EXECUTION, AND THE LIKE. PRECISE DATA ABOUT THE TYPES OF SKILLS MAINTAINED VIA CR, THE RATE OF DECAY OF THE SKILLS NOT MA ...
