  1. Long Range ROW Detection and Warning System

    SBC: NAVMAR APPLIED SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 151FR7

    Rail line intrusion events, initiated by dismounted individuals on foot or in vehicles, often result in devastating collisions with a train, with outcomes unfavorably to the intruder. A need exists for a locomotive mounted advanced remote detection system that can autonomously detect and characterize an intruder, at a distance, alerting the operating engineer to take corrective action. Navmar Appl ...

  2. Long Range ROW Detection and Warning System

    SBC: R-DEX Systems, Inc            Topic: 151FR7

    R-DEX Systems proposes to develop the TrackMap System, an innovative and groundbreaking long-range detection and warning system (DWS) for the detection of unlawful targets on the railroad right of way (ROW). TrackMap will leverage low-cost radar sensors, proven software, and high-performance embedded processing to enable the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and its safety partners to signific ...

  3. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Drivers searching extensively for parking, a behavior known as cruising, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue in recent years. However, the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. We propose to develop a low cost approach to automatic detection of cruising behavior using dense netwo ...

  4. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    This proposal leverages our current DOT-funded SBIR Phase II project developing software to assist truck drivers and companies to fatigue optimize driver scheduling and route planning. This project will build a set of web-services specially designed to provide objective quantitative feedback to truck drivers, dispatchers, and safety managers about fatigue from fatigue stressors common in trucking ...

  5. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    Welding of HPS70W is well understood when using submerged arc welding (SAW) and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) techniques. A Welding Advisory Group (WAG) which consisted of technical advisors from the Navy, AISI, and FHWA, major filler metal manufacturers, and steel producers determined the guidelines for welding HPS70W. As a result, comprehensive guidelines and welding procedures exist for SAW ...

  6. Development of roses resistant to rose rosette disease

    SBC: CONARD-PYLE CO. THE            Topic: 82

    The ornamental sector is the most valuable non-food crop sector of US agriculture. However, changing climates and increased interstate commerce have increased the ease with which diseases can spread and threaten this valuable industry. In the past few decades, Rose Rosette Disease (RRD) has spread from its source in the Rockies, through the Mid-West to the South and major populations centers of th ...

  7. Research & Development of Ergonomic Tools & Equipment for Women Livestock Farmers

    SBC: GREEN HERON TOOLS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Some 30% of U.S. farm operators are women, and an unspecified number of "farm wives" and other female helpers also perform farm chores. Despite anatomical, physiological and anthropometric characteristics that place women at elevated risk for some farm injuries, women have typically had to use agricultural tools and equipment ill-suited to their frames, physical strengths etc.Green Heron Tools, LL ...

  9. An Instant Estrogen Sensor for Poultry Gender Sorting Automation

    SBC: Abzyme Therapeutics, LLC            Topic: 83

    The need for segregation of poultry based on sex is driven by gender-related differences in growth rate, market age, management practices, and nutritional requirements. Each day, global poultry industry staff would ideally like to determine the gender of > 150 million newly hatched birds. Currently, this can be done only manually at the hatchery, which is a virtually impossible undertaking. Aut ...

  10. High-performance lignopolymer surfactants

    SBC: SALIX LIGNOPOLYMERS, LLC            Topic: 81

    Salix Lignopolymers is commercializing a formulation of polymer-grafted kraft lignin that utilizes controlled polymerization chemistry to produce a hybrid nanoparticle having a lignin core and a polymer corona. When grafted with water-soluble polymers, experiments in surfactant applications have shown materials made of 60% lignin are highly surface active. In contrast, traditional polymer grafting ...
