  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. 6 Dimensional Sensor Package (6DSP)

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07NH1

    Understanding the kinematics of intruding structures (floor plans, doors, roofs, etc.) as well as dummy motions is critical to safety related research. DTS believes the best way to acquire this data is to use small lightweight sensor packages to dynamically track the motion of single points using six degrees-of-freedom measurements. This methodology does not require line of sight to the measured ...

  3. A First Responder Tool for Rapic, Efficient, and Effective Response to Hazardous Material Incidents

    SBC: QUIMBA SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: 07PH2

    The nightmare scenario in HAZMAT transport (or storage) is an incident in the proximity of a densely populated area. This issue is so critical that Congress has, on a number of occasions, considered restricting HAZMAT transportation, routing it around metropolitan areas. While so far such restrictions have not been implemented, the HAZMAT transportation industry faces mounting legal and insuranc ...

  4. Microwave Thermoreflectometry for Corrosion Detection in Concrete

    SBC: NEWPORT SENSORS INC            Topic: 07FH2

    This SBIR project will explore innovative application of the PI's proprietary microwave imaging technology to time-resolved thermoreflectometry for non-destructive detection of rebar corrosion in concrete. This is based on the principle that a corrosion layer surronding the rebar serves as a thermal insulator and, as a result, corroded rebars cools more slowly than uncorroded ones upon heating. ...

  5. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Detonators

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify explosive detonators. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape, and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by ...

  8. VEHICLE AXLE DETECTOR BASED ON NON-CONTACT DETECTION

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PACIFIC-SIERRA RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SENSOR MODULE FOR COUNTING VEHICLE AXLES ON ROADWAYS. THIS SENSOR WOULD NOT REQUIRE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THE ROADBED, AND COULD BE SAFELY SETUP WITHOUT IMPEDING TRAFFIC EVEN TEMPORARILY. THE SENSOR WILL DETECT THE AXLES ON MULTIPLE LANE HIGHWAYS AND KEEP THE SEPARATE LANE COUNTS DISTINCT. THIS ROADWAY LAND AXLE DETECTOR (LAD) IS BASED ON EXISTING ...

  9. Optics for Focal Plane Photochromic Anti-glare Device

    SBC: Quantic Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anti-glare visors and rearview mirrors for cars can be constructed by inserting a photochromic layer in the focal plane of an optical system. Rays from intense glare souces are focused and create dark spots on the photochromic layer and thus self attenuate. Rays from dim objects are left unaffected. The optics can be achieved with either conventional lenses or microlens arrays. Anti-glare devi ...

  10. 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 ...
