  1. Entire Ship Ballast Autonomous Wireless Monitoring System

    SBC: Invocon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The exchange of ship ballast water has introduced non-native organisms to ports around the world. These bioinvaders are non-indigenous species that have the potential to upset local ecological systems and economics. Various treatment methods are in limited use or experimentation: heat treatment, ultraviolet, chemical, and filtration. These are successful in eliminating a portion of the organis ...

  2. Video Detection and Image Processing Systems for Traffic Law Enforcement

    SBC: DIGITAL TRAFFIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Digital Traffic Systems, Inc. has previously developed and sells commercially an Intelligent Camera System that interprets video images of the road traffic and computes traffic parameters including: Queue Length (Vehicle count), Flow Speed (miles per hour), Density (vehicles per mile), volume (vehicles per hour), Lane Occupancy (percent of lance occupied) and Headway (average distance| feet betwe ...

  3. A Neural Network-based System for Automated Detection of Wire Insulation Chafing from TDR/FDR Data

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to develop an automated system for identification and characterization of chafing in the aircraft wiring. Chafing degrades wiring integrity and can lead to shorts and/or damaged data pathways. Shorts have been associated with deadly in-flight fires. Damaged data pathways have caused engine shutdowns, loss of control, and other safety hazards. Currently recognizing and measurin ...

  4. Calibration of an Autonomous Navigation System Using GPS and Machine Learning

    SBC: Sierra Nevada Corporation            Topic: N/A

    GPS receivers are heavily used in aviation for both visual and instrument flights. There is a need for a backup system so that enroute and non-precision approaches can be flown without reliance on ground based systems should GPS be unavailable. We propose to use barometric pressure, airspeed, low-cost inertial sensors, three-axis magnetometer along with high-fidelity geomagnetic models, and an ...

  5. Utilization of Native Grass and Forb Meadows as a Source for Native Seed

    SBC: Solis Environmental            Topic: N/A

    Mandates to use native wildflower and grass seed began in 1987 with the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act and have been reinforced by two Executive Orders. Current demand for native seed exceeds the supply therefore the need exists to develop additional native seed sources.

  6. Active Automated Diagnostic System for Aircrafts

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aircraft wire damage can be caused by aging, maintenance, vibration, exposure to moisture, and many other factors. However, current wire maintenance and inspection methods are often insufficient to detect these frequent problems. Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop an aircraft wire maintenance system that detects wiring problems and analyzes the type of fault. This system, called Active Aut ...
