  1. Demonstration of a Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection System Using Asset-Based Change Detection

    SBC: Noble Drone Services, LLC            Topic: 180FR4

    Today’s prevailing methods of visual track inspection tend to be expensive, disruptive to operations, and have potential to be less thorough than preferred. To help address these issues, machine vision technology emerged in the rail sector over a decade ago; however, the technology has not achieved its expected potential due to the uncontrolled nature of rail environments. Recent findings have s ...

  3. Innovative technologies for nondestructive determination of fracture toughness for pipeline steels in transportation infastructure

    SBC: Innerspec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    In the inspection and quality assurance framework, coercimetry refers to non-destructive testing of mechanical properties based on measurements of the magnetic characteristics of a metal. This technology relies on the continuous and noticeable (100-400%) increase in the magnitude of the coercivity, while the metal passes from as-delivered to its final state. As both magnetic and mechanical propert ...

  4. 3D PRINTABLE, REACTIVELY DEPOSITED HYBRIDSIL POLYIMIDE MATERIALS FOR THE FFF PRODUCTION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE TOOLING

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: A18140

    The objective of this program is to develop, cultivate, and commercially transition innovative high temperature HybridSil polyimide copolymers that may be 3D printed via fused filament fabrication (FFF) processes using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) 3D printers to additively manufacture tooling for high-pressure injection molding operations. The proposed FFF printable HybridSil polyimides will pr ...

  5. Provably Unclonable Functions on Re-configurable Devices

    SBC: Potomac Research LLC            Topic: A18BT001

    Physically UnclonableFunctions (PUFs) have been proposed as central building blocks in cryptographic protocols and security architectures. PUFs are physical devices that exhibit a challenge/responsebehavior: when presented with a challenge, the device produces a response that is a random function of both the challenge and the physical properties of the device.In contrast to most digital designs, i ...
