  2. 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 The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices.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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Weather "Action-Chain" Enabler (ACE) Application

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 834

    In this Phase II effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Westover Studios, proposes to develop a functional prototype of the Weather “Action Chain” Enabler (ACE) application using the technologies identified, knowledge gained, and preliminary design conceived during the Phase I effort. As designed, the Weather ACE application will be a non-intr ...

  6. Sea Tag-SP: A family of acoustic enabled satellite tags for spawning detection and more

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Phase-1 demonstrated the powerful and unusual remote sensing opportunities available by adding acoustic signal detection to pop-up satellite tags (PSAT). The time and location of spawning define the starting point in the life history of fish. Yet this event, which is of critical importance to fishery researchers and managers seeking to gain an understanding of distinct reproductive populations and ...

  7. A Compact Turbo-Rankin Energy Conversion System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    Creare is developing a miniature power system for NOA weather monitoring stations in remote locations. This system can provide electric power continuously from naturally occurring temperature differences that exist between ambient air and water in environments such as the Arctic Ocean and the Great Lakes. Generating power directly from these temperature difference uses the atmosphere and ocean/lat ...

  8. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  9. Under Keel Clearance- Risk Management System (UKC-RMS)

    SBC: W R SYSTEMS LTD.            Topic: 828

    The S‐100 specification is a new geospatial standard for hydrographic data, that is presently under development by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO). Once the S‐100 based products and services are fully developed by the IHO, current datasets will be scheduled for obsolescence, and the Hydrographic Offices (HOs) will no longer produce them. Companies offering e‐navigation solu ...

  10. Developing a robust and scalable calibration approach to low-cost AQ sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Poor air quality represents a major public health risk, contributing to an estimated one of every eight deaths worldwide. Low-cost air quality sensors have developed rapidly over the last few years and offer the opportunity to make air quality monitoring widespread at an affordable price. However, low-cost sensors are currently unable to deliver accurate, reliable data due to a lack of understandi ...
