  1. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines 3/20/2018 For this SBIR we will develop a machine vision system which uses onboard standard-resolution cameras in vehicles to identify and read barcode signs on the roadside. The proposed approach could provide a low-cost solution that make connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology viable for rural areas ...

  2. Satellite Low-Shot Augmented Object Detection (SALSA)

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA172002

    The recent widespread use of overhead sensors, and their ability to provide continuous streams of imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, has generated a critical need for high-fidelity, automated object detection systems. For intelligence analysts, searching large volumes of imagery with vast spatial and temporal extent can be extremely time consuming and tedious ...

  3. NGAflix: a cloud-based adaptive bitrate video processing and distribution system

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA181002

    The large volume of full motion video from unmanned aerial vehicles, along with other data from various sensors creates resource andengineering challenges in managing, processing and distributing that data. Law enforcement and intelligence work require videos in locationsfar from where they were recorded, and need multiple sensor streams to be synchronized for search, filtering, and transformation ...

  4. Low-Shot Alternate Viewpoint Analogies

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA181008

    Overhead imagery analysts spend their time scouring aerial and satellite imagery looking for objects based on example images. Collectingexample imagery of our adversaries newest military hardware is often challenging. The only examples we have may be from open sourceintelligence at air shows or military parades or from limited clandestine collections. Often, only a small set of ground-based imager ...

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

    SBC: NELSON/NYGAARD CONSULTING ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 142FH2

    Cruising for parking is a problem that cities have long struggled to address. Recent efforts by the FHWA in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and other cities have advanced the state of knowledge but large gaps remain. This project seeks to address these important gaps by using GPS traces, GPS-augmented travel surveys, and GPS traces with driver video to quantify the extent of cruising, and ...

  8. Environmentally Friendly Low Friction Coating for Concrete Barriers

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 121FH1

    Resodyn Corporation is proposing a material and application system that will create a low friction coating on concrete median barriers. The advanced material developed for the low friction coating is an affordable, tough, weather resistant, and environmentally friendly copolymer. The proposed application concept is for truck mounted equipment that enables a single pass application of the coating ...

  9. Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System (IDEAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 111FH3

    Low or narrow bridges are often hit by legal-sized commercial vehicles and oversize vehicles often strike regulation bridges. In both cases the accidents result in extensive property damage, possible personal injuries and even death, and increased traffic congestion. Past attempts to warn drivers of risks for bridge hits have failed due to inaccurate measurement, high rates of false alarms, or s ...

  10. Transportation Autonomous Device

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR4

    Job related injuries cost the railroads over $1 billion annually and from 2005 through 2008 30.3% of those injuries occurred in the rail yard. A majority of the accidents were attributed to slips, trips and falls from the worker slipping on ballast or tripping on other trackside objects. IEM is developing a Transportation Autonomous Device that may be configured to work autonomously, with a remote ...
