  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. Automated High Speed, Low Water Consumption Insulator Cleaner

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

    A novel third rail insulator cleaner and novel cleaning tool - the Spin Wedge, will be developed. The novel cleaner is a skate that rides directly on the third rail and is attached to a service vehicle. Four Spin Wedges, attached to the skate, direct a very rapid series of high pressure water jets arcs, like hammer blows, only on the surface to be cleaned. As the skate moves forward at high spe ...

  3. Balancing Safety and Capacity in an Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System

    SBC: Sabra & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This research is designed to develop a methodology that will identify unsafe traffic conditions such as rear-end, angle and left-turn crashes at individual signalized intersections, and in arterial and grid signalized networks. This research project will have a final product in the form of an algorithms, that would be developed to alleviate such safety risks by adjusting controller timing and ope ...

  4. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The techniques uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated im ...

  5. COMMERCIAL SPACE LAUNCH FREQUENCY REQUIRMENTS

    SBC: Berner, Lanphier & Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY COMMERCIAL SPACE-LAUNCH FREQUENCY REQUIREMENTS ARE MET IN THE 2200- TO 2300-MHZ BAND. NEW FREQUENCY ALLOCATIONS MAY LIMIT FREQUENCIES FOR COMMERCIAL SAFE AND RELIABLE COMMERCIAL SPACE-LAUNCH OPERATIONS TO THREE CHANNELS IN THE 2360- TO 2390-MHZ BAND. THIS RESEARCH WILL ASSESS WHETHER THIS ALLOCATION IS SUFFICIENT TO ENSURE CONTINUED SAFE AND RELIABLE COMMERCIAL SPACE-LAUNCH OPERATIONS. D ...

  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 ...
