  2. Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Proposal title: Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments Additional passenger fatalities/injuries can occur during derailments involving interaction with wayside structures. Analogously, automobile fatalities often result from interaction of vehicles with roadside structures; personnel hazard reduction is a key design criterion for roadsid ...

  3. SoldierBoost, Nutrient-Dense Soldier Food Bar Ration

    SBC: SYSTEMS & MATERIALS RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DLA163001

    Soldiers engaged in Sustained Operations can burn up to 6,000 kcal of energy per day, which cannot be compensated for by current rations - Meals, Ready-to-Eat and First Strike Rations only provide up to 3,750 kcal/day and 2,900 kcal/day, respectively. This energy debt is further aggravated by the fact that most soldiers "field strip" their rations, removing menu items that are undesirable, or that ...

  4. Resilient Wayside Structures and Passenger Car Survivability

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Additional passenger fatalities and injuries can occur during derailments due to interaction with wayside structures, such as catenary poles, bridge abutments, and discontinuities in third rails at highway grade crossings. Resilient wayside structures can reduce these risks, by lessening the amount of intrusion, penetration, and passenger motion. PEC and Arup will work together to develop resilien ...

  5. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    The Next Generation Equipment Committee (NGEC) developed a standard for specifying the use of an Ethernet based digital train line (DTL) network to replace the COMM line for passenger trains. These specifications are PRIIA 305‐919 Digital Train Line Hardware and PRIIA 305‐920 Digital Train Line Software. The intent Is to eventually allow for the improvement of passenger train control. DTL spec ...

  6. Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    With this research, we would like to provide new materials joining methods to the DOT. This will be achieved with a pulse energy store that has already demonstrated game changing capability in welding a wide variety of metals and alloys. The process we are proposing is known as Homopolar Welding. The weld is created by a solid state fusion welding process whereby high current is passed through the ...

  7. SoldierBoost, Nutrient-Dense Soldier Food Supplement

    SBC: SYSTEMS & MATERIALS RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DLA163001

    Soldiers engaged in high intensity operations can burn up to 4,500 kcal of energy per day, which cannot be compensated for by current rationsMeals Ready to Eat (MREs) and First Strike Rations (FSRs) only provide up to 3,750 kcal/day and 2,900 kcal/day, respectively. This energy debt is further aggravated by the fact that most soldiers field strip their MREs, removing menu items that are undesirabl ...

  8. Low Cost Carbon Fluoride Active Materials for BA-5790/U Lithium Batteries

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: DLA152001

    American Energy Technologies Co. will partner with Eagle Picher Technologies in order to develop a lean and efficient method for synthesis of Lithium battery grade carbon monofluoride (CFx). The focus of the development / prototyping work will be on continuous processing, application of domestic raw materials and use of modern material de-aggregation techniques for particles of the end-product. Pr ...

  9. Upscaling and Optimization of Magnet to Magnet Recycling

    SBC: Urban Mining Company            Topic: DLA161003

    Neodymium-iron-boron rare-earth based magnets are key components of mobile phones, electric vehicles, wind-turbines and many critical US defense systems. Despite their importance, the US is completely reliant on imports from China for their supply. Future supply risk renders this situation untenable, yet re-establishing the supply chain for these magnets in the US could take two decades. Urban Min ...
