  1. Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System (IDEAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 111FH3

    Low or narrow bridges are often hit by legal-sized commercial vehicles and oversize vehicles often strike regulation bridges. In both cases the accidents result in extensive property damage, possible personal injuries and even death, and increased traffic congestion. Past attempts to warn drivers of risks for bridge hits have failed due to inaccurate measurement, high rates of false alarms, or s ...

  2. Transportation Autonomous Device

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR4

    Job related injuries cost the railroads over $1 billion annually and from 2005 through 2008 30.3% of those injuries occurred in the rail yard. A majority of the accidents were attributed to slips, trips and falls from the worker slipping on ballast or tripping on other trackside objects. IEM is developing a Transportation Autonomous Device that may be configured to work autonomously, with a remote ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Volcanic Ash Nephelometer Probe

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: S309

    Advanced dropsondes that could effectively be guided through atmospheric regions of interest such as volcanic plumes may enable unprecedented observations of important atmospheric phenomena. IDI proposes to develop a flight ready optical sensor to provide cloud properties and hazardous volcanic ash and icing information within commercial airspace. The probe will initially be developed for a drops ...

  5. An Advanced Wet Expansion Turbine for Hydrogen Liquefaction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X1001

    This proposal is responsive to NASA SBIR Topic X10.01, specifically, the need for efficient small- to medium-scale hydrogen liquefaction technologies, including domestically produced wet cryogenic turboexpanders. Future NASA missions will require hydrogen liquefaction systems for spaceport, planetary, and lunar surface operations. A critical part of these systems is the cryogenic expansion turbi ...

  6. Emile: The EventML Explorer

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: A120

    The protocols needed to coordinate the activities of distributed components, such as consensus algorithms, are notoriously difficult to design, implement, and verify. Abstraction is the only way to gain intellectual control over this complex problem; so ATC-NY and Cornell University have developed Event Logic, a high-level model for describing and reasoning about distributed systems, and EventML, ...

  7. Adaptive Rotorcraft Condition and Usage Tracking System (ARCUTS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: A209

    International Electronic Machines (IEM), a leader in the development of innovative sensor solutions for transportation systems, will develop the Adaptive Rotorcraft Condition and Usage Tracking System (ARCUTS), building upon and integrating wireless instrumentation systems developed for the U.S. Navy, CBM systems developed for the U.S. Army, and condition and diagnostic sensing systems developed f ...

  8. A Structurally-Integrated Ice Detection and De-Icing System for Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S308

    Unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) are becoming more prevalent for Suborbital Scientific Earth Exploration, which often involves high altitude, long endurance flight missions. Extreme environmental conditions, especially involving sub-freezing temperatures (e.g. polar missions in support of the U.S. Global Change Research Program), can lead to the accretion of ice on control surfaces and jeopardize bot ...

  9. A Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler for Aircraft Superconducting Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A201

    Hybrid turbo-electric aircraft with gas turbines driving electric generators connected to electric propulsion motors have the potential to transform the aircraft design space by decoupling power generation from propulsion. Resulting aircraft designs such as blended-wing bodies with distributed propulsion can provide the large reductions in emissions, fuel burn, and noise required to make air tran ...

  10. High Energy Battery Materials with Novel Separator and Electrolytes for Space Applications

    SBC: NOHMS Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X802

    Future space exploration energy-storage needs span a wide range of requirements. NASA's Exploration missions will require safe, human-rated, high specific energy, high energy density and high efficiency-storage systems that can be used in space and on the moon and Mars. These energy storage devices need to be used in applications such as Landers, Rovers, and extravehicular activities (EVAs). ...
