  1. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  2. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  3. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  4. OpenWater- A citizen science monitoring platform

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 833

    Ensuring the health of coastal marine ecosystems has emerged as one of the primary environmental concerns of this century. Frequent monitoring of water quality is required to establish baseline levels, allow identification of anomalies, and enable early detection of problems. Citizen science programs have been shown to be a highly effective method of monitoring water quality. Creare proposes to de ...

  5. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 842

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  6. A Compact and Agile Fixed-Wing UAS for VTOL Shipboard Operations

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 832

    Commercially available unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) are not well designed to meet requirements for many atmospheric measurement applications, including deployment from ships, long endurance, and low cost. Multi-rotor UASs have recently gained popularity as a lowcost platform use in measurement and monitoring applications, but these systems have limited endurance and payload capabilities. Exist ...

  7. Manual and Automated Marine Weather Observations Using Smartphones

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 826

    Accurate marine weather nowcasts and forecasts are critical requirements for mariners to maintain situational awareness and ensure safe navigation for vessels, passengers, crew, and cargo. To best achieve this, reliable observations of atmospheric and sea conditions must be available at high spatial and temporal coverage. Unfortunately, existing approaches for marine weather observations are inade ...

  8. Advanced Durability Coatings for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: UNITED PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) engine propulsion reliability is often dominated by failures associated with load bearing, sliding, or rotating components. These durability issues result in frequent overhauls, reducing system availability and increasing operating cost. Overcoming these is dramatically more difficult due to the operating conditions for military applications as well as the major empha ...

  9. Family of Light Weight Cases for 5.56mm Ammunition

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: SOCOM17001

    During the Phase I effort, Corvid Technologies will thoroughly evaluate the present state of the art of candidate materials and designs of a lighter and more cost effective 5.56mm ammunition case for the expressed purpose of compiling data in a clear, easily digested format that will be subsequently used to select a candidate or candidates for prototyping. The present state of the art consists of ...

  10. Canine Response Inhibitors

    SBC: K2 Solutions, Inc            Topic: SOCOM172001

    U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) missions require the ability to maneuver undetected in urban and rural environments. While Special Operations Forces (SOF) have developed Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) for avoiding adversarial humans and technologies, remotely deliverable deterrents for domesticated and feral canines have remained an elusive goal, sometimes compromising operat ...
