    SBC: Airdex Corpon            Topic: N/A

    THE TIME REQUIRED FOR CLEANING, DEHUMIDIFYING AND PURGING OFCARGO HOLDS HAS A DIRECT EFFECT ON THE TURN AROUND TIME OF VESSELS CARRYING MOISTURE SENSITIVE GOODS IN PORT. THIS PROPROJECT WILL THOROUGHLY RESEARCH THE REQUIREMENTS FOR DEHUMIDIFICATION, DEVELOP DESIGN CRITERIA, DESIGN CRITERIA , DESIGN A REFRIGERANT TYPE DEHUMIDIFIER, CONSTRUCT A PROTO TYPE, AND TEST THE EQUIPMENT IN THE FIELD. PARTIC ...

  2. LASER GENERATED SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVES FOR FLAW DETECTION IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS.

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM STUDIES REQUIRE IN-SERVICE INSPECTION USING NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) TECHNIQUES FOR FLAW DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION. IN CASES WHERE SUCH DEFECTS ARE SMALL COMPARED WITH THE THICKNESS OF THE SECTION, ULTRASONIC METHODS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE THE MOST SUITABLE. IT WOULD BE IDEAL TO MAKE SUCH MEASUREMENTS REMOTELY WITH A SYSTEM COMBINING THE STRONG FEATURES OF ULTRASONI ...

  3. FEASIBILITY STUDY TO DETERMINE THE POTENTIAL OF UTILIZATION OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS, CELLULAR PHONE AND ELECTRONIC TRANSFER TECHNOLOGIES TO SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE AND IN SOME CASES ELIMINATE THE SHRINKAGE OF COLLECTED TRANSIT REVENUE THROUGH EMPLOYEE

    SBC: Coin Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    FEASIBILITY STUDY TO DETERMINE THE POTENTIAL OF UTILIZATION OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS, CELLULAR PHONE AND ELECTRONIC TRANSFER TECHNOLOGIES TO SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE AND IN SOME CASES ELIMINATE THE SHRINKAGE OF COLLECTED TRANSIT REVENUE THROUGH EMPLOYEE MIS-HANDLING, EMPLOYEE FRAUD, EMPLOYEE THEFT. THIS STUDY WILL FOCUS ON THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTING T THE ELECTRONIC/MICRO PROCESSOR BASED COLLECTION ...

  4. RECENT BREAK THROUGHS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF (LOW COST LIGHT-WEIGHT) HONECOMB ENERGY ABSORBERS FOR AUTOMOTIVE BUMPER SYSTEMS NOW MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO DESIGN A COST-EFFECTIVE LOW PEAK FORCE BUMPER SYSTEM WHICH CAN BE DESIGNED TO TRANSMIT AN EXTREMELY LOW

    SBC: Concept Analysis Corp            Topic: N/A

    RECENT BREAK THROUGHS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF (LOW COST LIGHT -WEIGHT) HONECOMB ENERGY ABSORBERS FOR AUTOMOTIVE BUMPER SYSTEMS NOW MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO DESIGN A COST-EFFECTIVE LOW PEAK FORCE BUMPER SYSTEM WHICH CAN BE DESIGNED TO TRANSMIT AN EXTREMELY LOW SHOCK LEVEL TO VEHICLE OCCUPANTS. ONE OF CAC'S CONCEPTS IS TO DESIGN A BUMPER SYSTEM CONPOSED OF A FRONT FACE MOUNTED (EVA) HONEYCOMB ABSORBER COVE ...

  5. COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY TO EVALUATE AIRCRAFT VORTEX WAKE INTENSITY

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE DOES NOT EXIST TODAY A UNIFIED MEANS OF EVALUATING THE VORTEX INTENSITY BEHIND COMMERCIAL JET LINERS PRIOR TO PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING AT FULLSCALE. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, DATA AND ANALYTICAL DEVELOPMENTS HAVE PROVIDED MUCH ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGY WHICH MAY MAKE POSSIBLE THE PREDICTION OF WAKE INTENSITY AND DECAY FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES. THE OBJECT OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO DEMO ...

  6. UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT.

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT. THESE STANDARDS ARE SET TO AVOID A LANDING ENCOUNTER WITH A VORTEX WAKE. IF AN ONBOARD VORTEX SENSOR AN ESCAPE SYSTEM COULD BE DEVELOPED WHICH IS BOTH RELIABLE AND INEXPENSIVE, THE A AVIATION COMMUNITY COULD BENEFIT BY DECREASED TERMINAL DELAYS WITHOUT COMPROMISING SAFETY. THE CONCEPT TO BE ST ...

  7. ELIMINATION OF TURBULENCE-INDUCED STRUCTURAL FAILURE AND CONTROL LOSS IN VERY LIGHT AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Daedalus Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SYSTEM UTILIZING THE FREE-WING CONCEPT HAS BEEN DESIGNED FOR LIGHT AND VERY LIGHT WING-LOADING AIRCRAFT THAT ACCOMMODATES MODERATE TO HEAVY TURBULENCE WITHOUT TRANSMITTING HIGH GUST LOADINGS TO THE AIRFRAME OR THREATENING LOSS OF CONTROL. THE PROJECT WILL TEST THE SYSTEM IN A RESEARCH VEHICLE APPROXIMATING THE DESIGN CRITERIA SET FORTH IN 14 CFR, PART 103; THE RESEARCH VEHICLE IS UNMANNED.

  8. A LOW-COST OPTICAL WEATHER IDENTIFIER FOR AN AUTOMATED WEATHER OBSERVING SYSTEM

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE TYPE OF PRECIPITATION (RAIN, SNOW, FOG/HAZE, HAIL) HAS TRACTIONALLY RELIED ON HUMAN JUDGMENT. RECENTLY, THE WAVE PROPAGATION LABORATORY OF DEVELOPED A TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMATIC WEATHER IDENTIFICATION USING LASER SCINTILLATION AND SCATTERING. THE TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TESTED IN FIELD OPERATION. HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM IS TOO CLUMSY AND EXPENSIVE FOR LARGE-SCALE FIELD ...

  9. OF LONGITUDINAL STRESSES IN RAILS UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Eggers And Associates            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL TECHNIQUE (PATENT IN APPLICATION) IS PROPOSED FOR THE NON-DESTRUCTIVE MEASUREMENT OF LONGITUDINAL STRESSES IN RAIL WHICH MAKE USE OF TWO PHENOMENA KNOWN AS (1) MAGNE TOSTRICTION AND (2) SKIN EFFECT. MAGNETOSTRICTION IS EXHIBITED BY FERROMAGNETIC MATERIALS SUCH AS RAIL STEELS AND GIVES RISE TO A CHANGE IN THE MAGNETIC PERMEABILITY WITH APPLIED STRESS. THE SKIN EFFECT DETERMINES THE DISTRIBU ...

  10. SPEECH RECOGNITION IN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC) (NOISE, MULTIPLE VOICES) AND PSYCHOLOGICAL OR PHYSICAL STRESS (PEAK TRAFFIC PERIODS, COLDS), WHILE MEETING THE NEED OF ERROR-RESISTANT OPERATION.

    SBC: Emerson & Stern Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    SPEECH RECOGNITION IN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC) (NOISE, MULTIPLE VOICES) AND PSYCHOLOGICAL OR PHYSICAL STRESS (PEAK TRAFFIC PERIODS, COLDS), WHILE MEETING THE NEED OF ERROR-RESISTANT OPERATION. A SUCCESSFUL DESIGN THAT "CAPTURES" THE INFORMATION ALREADY COMMUNICATED VERBALLY, HOWEVER, WOULD SAVE TIME NOW SPENT RE-ENTERING SPOKEN DATA THROUGH THE KEYBOARD AND REDUCE THE NEED FOR A CONTROLLER TO LOO ...
