  1. Digital Imaging of Pipeline Mechanical Damage and Residual Stress

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined.  The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining life.  Empirical relationships between damage features and burst pressure have been developed and ...

  2. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    Automated vehicle counting technology has been in use for many years, but developments in automated pedestrian counting technology have been limited.  Pedestrians are more difficult to detect, track and count, than motor vehicles because their paths are much less constrained.  In Phae I, we propose to develop a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting.  In this sys ...

  3. Device and Strategy for Shock Wave Mitigation

    SBC: LARRY HILL CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: 091FH1

    Substantial simulation work has been done showing that traffic shock-waves can be reduced or eliminated through "cooperative adaptive cruise control" and "communicating cruise control" where following vehicles are warned that leading vehicles are slowing in time to react. To be effective, however, such devices must be installed and operate in the majority of vehicles in the queue. Even if mandat ...

  5. Chemical-Free Deicing- A Systems Approach

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes an innovative approach to non-chemical deicing of aircraft which focuses on new technology which could provide revolutionary improvement in the performance of a relatively mature deicing technique. This combined systems approach could be readily incorporated into existing aircraft and ground support equipment. We propose to develop a permanent anti-icing surface treatment ...

  7. Response-Based Parameter Estimation for Determining Unknown Bridge Foundations

    SBC: Infrasense, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evaluation of bridges for vulnerability to scour or other potential sources of damage requires knowledge of foundation conditions beneath piers and abutments that are often unknown. INFRASENSE proposed to develop and demonstrate a response-based parameter estimation method (RPEM) which will address the need for a simple, low-cost system for unknown foundation evaluation. The RPEM system is based ...

  8. MWM-Array Characterization of Widespread Fatigue Damage Onset

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will investigate the potential of an enhanced version of the Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM), called the MWM-Array, to characterize and predict remaining life for components experiencing widespread fatigue damage. The MWM has already demonstrated the potential to characterize fatigue damage in metals priod to the formation of cracks, as well as the ability to detect and charac ...

  9. Automated Production of Composite Energy Absorbing Utility Poles

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites, Kaman Sciences and Dr. Malcolm Ray of the University of Iowa propose to investigate the design of energy absorbing utility poles made from composite materials. This team has considerable experience in the multiple technologies needed to successfully complete the proposed program, including design of high performance composite products for automated production and design, analysi ...

  10. Monolithic Fully Integrated Optic Inertial Navigation System

    SBC: Optisensors Inc            Topic: N/A

    The GPS is an affordable and accurate means of guiding military and civilian aircraft. However, at times the GPS signal becomes blocked or degraded due to loss of satellite lock or poor viewing angle. It is necessary to back it up with inertial navigation. However, there is no INS system which is accurate enough and inexpensive enough to do the job. A completely monolithic fully integrated INS ...
