  1. Low-cost Low-power Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More that 52% of the U.S. highway congestion in urban areas is a direct result of highway incidents. Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, low-cost and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems. Several solutions have been proposed but none could meet the requirements of transportation authorities. Central Signal, funded by federal agencies, has done ...

  2. High-Performance Passively Q-Switched Microchip Laser

    SBC: CONCEPTS RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N06015

    This proposal addresses the requirement to develop an ultra-compact, high-performance, passively Q-switched short pulse microchip laser that is appropriate for use in a military system environment. We plan to achieve the program goals through specific research paths and perform critical experiments that will demonstrate the effectiveness of the improvements in Phase I. In addition, to these design ...

  3. STTR Friction Stir Processing for Superplastic Forming

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N06T038

    In Phase I, technical and commercial feasibility was demonstrated for the application of friction stir processing (FSP) following by superplastic forming (SPF) of a 5083 aluminum alloy, and for FSP following by room temperature bending. An application showing significant promise for FSP followed by SPF is an aluminum water tight door. The use of FSP followed by SPF enables a significant part co ...

  4. Portable Friction Stir Welding Technology for Aluminum Fabrication

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N07T032

    Friction Stir Welding (FSW) has been demonstrated to provide significant benefit for Naval applications. However, its use has been limited to fabrication of panels, because no portable multi-axis FSW solution exists. If FSW could be used for in situ fabrication of complex assemblies, significant further benefits could be realized, including cost reduction and improved quality (significantly less ...

  5. APE Segmentation for Variable Speed Speech Synthesis

    SBC: PERCEPTRAL LLC            Topic: N08149

    We propose to apply proprietary technology to meet the needs of variable speed speech synthesis. Our approach involves a new method of sound segmentation that provides not only greater control of speech timing, but extensive control and variability of all manner of prosodic features, including intonation and accent, without undue degradation to sound quality and intelligibility. Current systems fa ...

  6. 3D Tool for Physics-Based Weather Simulation in a Training Environment

    SBC: Planet, LLC            Topic: N07037

    There are many high-end weather simulation tools available, but most focus on visual aspects of weather effects or predication modeling and not the capability (without extreme levels of programming) to demonstrate the physical effects of weather on objects in a realistic manner. The goal of this Phase II project is to create a set of real-time weather conditions and other shipboard physical phenom ...

  7. A Portable, Reagentless Spectral Analyzer for Rapid Diagnosis of Campylobacter Enteritis and Shigella Dysentery

    SBC: Biotronics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A portable fluorometric spectral analyzer for rapid field or shipboard diagnosis of Campylobacter enteritis and Shigella dysentery Is proposed for Phase I feasibility demonstration. All living cells are fluorescent and exhibit "fingerprint" spectral patterns that allow for their detection and Identification. The Campylobacter and Shigella bacteria have specific fluorescent patterns that may ...

  8. Advanced Concept Basalt Fiber Reinforcement for Concrete

    SBC: Research & Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    Extensive research (Ukraine) has shown that high strength continuous fibers of basalt can be produced. These fibers are inexpensive and have exceptionally high strength, stiffness and corrosion resistance. Basalt is a naturally occurring volcanic mineral, consisting a variety concentration of oxides. The product envisioned is a low-cost, corrosion resistant replacement for steel bar in reinforc ...
