  2. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  3. Efficient cFS-based On-board Lamberts Solution for DSMs

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: T11

    Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM) architectures provide unique scientific and programmatic benefits including multipoint in-situ measurements, multi-angle viewpoints, and improved understanding of the connections between separately measured phenomena and their time variations. However, these missions impose significant operational demands on ground tracking resources and mission operators alik ...

  4. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  6. Automated Driving Systems (ADS) Test Data Interface

    SBC: Sea, Ltd.            Topic: 190NH1

    SEA is proposing a technical evaluation and feasibility study for a Test Data Interface that could send command signals to a vehicle via CAN, as well as receive diagnostic information from the vehicle. This technology could be used to provide any number of vehicle test protocols, including the evaluation of advanced and autonomous driving features.SEA believes that a Test Data Interface will be a ...

  7. RLS & Associates, Inc. 190-FT1 Submission

    SBC: RLS & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 190FT1

    In the passage of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (Pub. L. No. 114-94), Congress challenged the U.S. DOT and the Federal Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) to develop a cost allocation technology to account for disparate federal reporting requirements and maintain separation of funding sources by trip for non-emergency medical transportation. The U.S. DOT notes the ...

  8. Robotic Utility Mapping and Installation System (RUMI)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Today, urban underground spaces are shared by multiple utility companies for laying power lines, gas lines, water supply/sewage pipes, fiber-optic cables, etc. The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices. Ability to accurately locate and provide awareness of bu ...

  9. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Pipeline operators employ cleaning tools for improving product throughput, inhibiting corrosion, and preparing their pipes for inline inspection. For many pipeline risk models, improving the scope and quality of input data is a long-term process. If the combined cost of pigging and inspecting was low and could be done simultaneously, pipeline operators would be encouraged to perform inspections mo ...

  10. Innovative technologies for nondestructive determination of fracture toughness for pipeline steels in transportation infastructure

    SBC: Innerspec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    In the inspection and quality assurance framework, coercimetry refers to non-destructive testing of mechanical properties based on measurements of the magnetic characteristics of a metal. This technology relies on the continuous and noticeable (100-400%) increase in the magnitude of the coercivity, while the metal passes from as-delivered to its final state. As both magnetic and mechanical propert ...
