  1. Automated Image Analysis for Fisheries Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 921F

    We propose to develop software that is capable of automatically classifying and measuring the length of fish observed in video. We will focus initially on underwater video, but much of the software will also be applicable to fish onboard commercial fishing vessels as well. Our approach is to first segment fish based on their motion in the water. For this purpose, we will make use of existing au ...

  2. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 913N

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels, and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA in its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate an advanced algorithm to derive ba ...

  3. Mobile VHF Lightning Mapping System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 942RDW

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a mobile VHF-based sensor suite for detecting and mapping lightning flashes. The proposes Lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LUTMUS)™ System will meet small unmanned aerial system (UAS) cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWAP) constraints and should be capable of being placed on virtually any small UAS. The most critical component of the LITMUS syst ...

  4. Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 122FH4

    Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) has been employed as a major technology to collect heavy vehicles’ data on the freeways. Because WIM is one of the most costly and sophisticated data collection system, how to effectively utilize the valuable WIM data, monitor WIM stations' performance, and identify out of calibration stations are especially important. In this project, we propose an innovative and yet pract ...

  5. A First Responder Tool for Rapic, Efficient, and Effective Response to Hazardous Material Incidents

    SBC: QUIMBA SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: 07PH2

    The nightmare scenario in HAZMAT transport (or storage) is an incident in the proximity of a densely populated area. This issue is so critical that Congress has, on a number of occasions, considered restricting HAZMAT transportation, routing it around metropolitan areas. While so far such restrictions have not been implemented, the HAZMAT transportation industry faces mounting legal and insuranc ...

  6. Microwave Thermoreflectometry for Corrosion Detection in Concrete

    SBC: NEWPORT SENSORS INC            Topic: 07FH2

    This SBIR project will explore innovative application of the PI's proprietary microwave imaging technology to time-resolved thermoreflectometry for non-destructive detection of rebar corrosion in concrete. This is based on the principle that a corrosion layer surronding the rebar serves as a thermal insulator and, as a result, corroded rebars cools more slowly than uncorroded ones upon heating. ...

  7. 6 Dimensional Sensor Package (6DSP)

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07NH1

    Understanding the kinematics of intruding structures (floor plans, doors, roofs, etc.) as well as dummy motions is critical to safety related research. DTS believes the best way to acquire this data is to use small lightweight sensor packages to dynamically track the motion of single points using six degrees-of-freedom measurements. This methodology does not require line of sight to the measured ...

  8. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Cities must perform detailed assessments of sidewalks and streets, including curb ramps, pedestrian signals, crosswalks, street furniture, and other components to determine compliance with the Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines. However, current assessment methods are inadequate or unreasonable due to time and resources required. The objectives of this project are to: 1) develop elect ...

  9. COAL LOCOMOTIVE PROPOSAL NO. 7300-912

    SBC: Brobeck Corp.            Topic: N/A

    COAL IS AN ATTRACTIVE FUEL FOR RAILROAD LOCOMOTIVES BECAUSE OF ITS DOMESTIC ABUNDANCE AND LOW COST PER UNIT OF HEAT. ONE RESTRAINT IN COAL AS A LOCOMOTIVE FUEL IS ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION. CONSIDERING THESE CONFLICTING CONDITIONS OF ATTRACTIVENESS AND DIFFICULTY IN USING COAL AS A FUEL, IT BECOMES QUITE IMPORTANT HOW THE COAL IS HANDLED AND CONVERTED TO HEAT FOR LOCOMOTIVE POWER. A STUDY OF HEAT EN ...

  10. SMOKE EMITTING INTERIOR MATERIALS FOR TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

    SBC: Chem-tronics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP RIGID SYNTOCTIC POLYIMIDE FOAM PANELS POSSESSING FLAME RESISTANCE, NO-SMOKE EMISSION AND LOW THERMAL CONDUCTANCE FOR REPLACING INTERIOR MATERIALS OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES NOW DESIGNATED AS POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS. AT LEAST FOUR CANDIDATE MATERIALS WILL BE PREPARED AND TESTED TO SELECT THE MOST PROMISING CANDIDATE FOR SCALE-UP IN A PHASE II PROGRAM.
