  1. Monolithic Fully Integrated Optic Inertial Navigation System

    SBC: Optisensors Inc            Topic: N/A

    The GPS is an affordable and accurate means of guiding military and civilian aircraft. However, at times the GPS signal becomes blocked or degraded due to loss of satellite lock or poor viewing angle. It is necessary to back it up with inertial navigation. However, there is no INS system which is accurate enough and inexpensive enough to do the job. A completely monolithic fully integrated INS ...

  4. VEHICLE AXLE DETECTOR BASED ON NON-CONTACT DETECTION

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PACIFIC-SIERRA RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SENSOR MODULE FOR COUNTING VEHICLE AXLES ON ROADWAYS. THIS SENSOR WOULD NOT REQUIRE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THE ROADBED, AND COULD BE SAFELY SETUP WITHOUT IMPEDING TRAFFIC EVEN TEMPORARILY. THE SENSOR WILL DETECT THE AXLES ON MULTIPLE LANE HIGHWAYS AND KEEP THE SEPARATE LANE COUNTS DISTINCT. THIS ROADWAY LAND AXLE DETECTOR (LAD) IS BASED ON EXISTING ...

  5. An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

    SBC: Polymer Bridge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed in 1 eight-hour day; and 4) be cost-competitive on an installed cost basis. This bridge will be buil ...

  6. Determination of the Onset of Widespread Fatigue Damage

    SBC: Qual-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QUAL-X proposes to nondestructively inspect the extensive surface areas of aging commercial airliners for corrosion and fatigue damage. QUAL-X will characterize the above surfaces both at local and global areas of interest using chemical gas penetrants and advanced gas sensor techniques; both of which were developed as an extension of the company's unique and singular experience with the ket gas ...

  7. Optics for Focal Plane Photochromic Anti-glare Device

    SBC: Quantic Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anti-glare visors and rearview mirrors for cars can be constructed by inserting a photochromic layer in the focal plane of an optical system. Rays from intense glare souces are focused and create dark spots on the photochromic layer and thus self attenuate. Rays from dim objects are left unaffected. The optics can be achieved with either conventional lenses or microlens arrays. Anti-glare devi ...

  8. Advanced Concept Basalt Fiber Reinforcement for Concrete

    SBC: Research & Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    Extensive research (Ukraine) has shown that high strength continuous fibers of basalt can be produced. These fibers are inexpensive and have exceptionally high strength, stiffness and corrosion resistance. Basalt is a naturally occurring volcanic mineral, consisting a variety concentration of oxides. The product envisioned is a low-cost, corrosion resistant replacement for steel bar in reinforc ...

  10. 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 ...
