  2. Phase II: EcoSod An Alternative Native Sod Solution for Highway Construction

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act requires the use of native grasses and wildflowers within highway corridors. A major problem for the revegetation industry has been the ability to predictably establish native vegetation from seed. The production of native sods would allow for the most sensitive period of establishment-germination and initial seedling growth-to be ...

  3. Demonstration of a Low-Cost Vehicle Monitoring

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 112FM1

    During the Phase I SBIR Effort, Mainstream demonstrated a unique vehicle monitoring system (VMS) for tractor trailer applications. The development was driven by the need to easily store, retrieve, and transfer key trailer parameters to the tractor and the need to electronically transfer key driver, tractor, and trailer information to roadside inspectors and maintenance personnel. In Phase I, we ...

  4. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will use an ultrasonic beam traveling logitudinally along the rail rather than the complex normal and angle-beams transducer assemblies in current systems. Detectio of transverse defects becomes a simple pulse-echo application and resolves many inherent speed, inspectin reliability and robustness problems in current rail inspection systems. The simplified procedure will increase the r ...
