  1. Examination of HM Portable Tanks within Transportation System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 112PH1

    Portable tanks used to transport hazard materials are often subject to forces and stress, thermal cycle loading, and shock/vibration throughout the transportation process. It is an interest to assess what effects may occur during loading and unloading from one shipping mode to another and what conditions the HM packages will experience in that specific mode. An in-situ sensor system is proposed he ...

  2. Innovative Solutions to Effectively Enforce Anto-texting Rules on Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV) Drivers

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM2

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative anti-texting system which does not prevent the use of any cell phone but can detect and record the texting and driving behavior for enforcement instead. This proposal lays out a concrete plan to develop a robust and cost effective system that can detect, identify and record the instances when a driver is texting (or voice calling without ha ...

  3. Communicating Towed unit (Trailer) Vehicle Identification Number(s) (VIN) to the Powered Unit

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM1

    Usually the lifetime of a trailer is much longer than tractors; tractors must work with a variety types and ages of trailers over the course of their use. In many scenarios (e.g., roadside, border crossing, smart parking, connected vehicle initiative, etc.), it is necessary to identify trailer(s)' VIN(s) and know their order attached to the powered unit. An automated trailer VIN identification and ...

  4. Three dimensional detection ranging and mapping of utilities and underground infrastructure at intersections using step-frequency groung penetrating radar without traffic control

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 122FH5

    A method to detect, locate, and map utilities and underground infrastructure is proposed at traffic speeds based on recent advances in step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SFGPR). Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated imaging of subsurface civil infrastructure elements such as pavement structure and inductive loop detectors embedded in the pavement. The proposed r ...

  5. GeoRad-Next Generation High Resolution, Long Range, Flexible and Modular Ground Penetrating Radar

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 122FH5

    Intelligent Automation Inc (IAI) in collaboration with IDS North America proposes to develop the next generation Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) technology called GeoRad. We will leverage an existing state –of-the-art dual-frequency dual-polarized massive array GPR and improve its accuracy so that wires, and pipes can be mapped. The accuracy of the position of the ground penetration radar directl ...

  6. Security-Enhanced Autonomous Network Management for Space Networking

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: O106

    NASA's Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) program is integrating its three current agency networks: Space Network (SN), Deep Space Network (DSN), and Near Earth Network (NEN). This effort raises several issues for the network management in the future integrated space networks. First, an integrated network management function, which uses common standards and implementations, is needed to se ...

  7. ESPRIT: Exercise Sensing and Pose Recovery Inference Tool

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: X1101

    Crew exercise is important for maintaining the health and fitness of astronauts, and to prevent adverse health problems, such as bone density losses. We developed algorithms for ESPRIT: an Exercise Sensing and Pose Recovery Inference Tool, in support of NASA's Exercise Countermeasure Program. ESPRIT is a stereo camera system that monitors exercise activities, detects markers placed on the body and ...

  8. Novel Silicon Carbide Deep Ultraviolet Detectors: Device Modeling, Characterization, Design and Prototyping

    SBC: CoolCAD Electronics            Topic: S105

    Silicon Carbide deep UV detectors can achieve large gains, high signal-to-noise ratios and solar-blind operation, with added benefits of smaller sizes, lower operating voltages, radiation hardness, ruggedness and scalability. SiC UV APDs implementation is challenging due to some material defects, relatively not-well modeled device operation, and very high absorption coefficients near 200nm wavelen ...

  9. An Ultra Low Power Cryo-Refrigerator for Space

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S107

    Future NASA Space Science Missions will incorporate detectors, sensors, shields, and telescopes that must be cooled to cryogenic temperatures. An enabling technology for these missions is advanced cryocoolers that can provide continuous and distributed cooling with minimal input power. On this program, Creare proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative cryocooler that produces refrigeratio ...

  10. Formaldehyde Profiler Using Laser Induced Fluorescence Technique

    SBC: MASSTECH, INC.            Topic: S108

    Formaldehyde (HCHO) is a key trace species that is of great interest to atmospheric scientists in NASA and other research institutions. In this SBIR project, we proposed to build an airborne atmospheric formaldehyde (HCHO) profiler implementing a Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) technique. This airborne instrument can also be used on the ground for measuring vertical HCHO profiles. To our knowle ...
