  1. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  2. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT RESIDUAL LIFE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

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

    ECONOMIC FACTORS CONTINUE TO RESULT IN COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT BEING OPERATED WELL BEYOND THEIR INITIAL DESIGN LIFE. FURTHER, EACH OF THESE AIRCRAFT EXPERIENCES A SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT LOADS AND ENVIRONMENT HISTORY. IN ORDER TO ACCURATELY CALCULATE THE REMAINING LIFE FOR ANY GIVEN AIRCRAFT, AND THEREBY PERMIT IT TO OPERATE SAFELY BEYOND ITS INITIAL DESIGN LIFE, THE HISTORY OF THAT AIRCRAFT MUST BE K ...

  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. "METHOD TO ENHANCE SENSITIVITY IN DETECTING AIRBORNE EXPLOSIVES"

    SBC: Lsr Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BESIDES ENSURING AIR SAFETY, THERE ARE ECONOMIC REASONS FOR DEVELOPING A HIGH SENSITIVITY EXPLOSIVE DETECTING SYSTEM. SUCH A SYSTEM WOULD ALLOW A QUICK, ACCURATE, AND RELIABLE SCREENING OF AIRCRAFT SUSPECTED OF CARRYING EXPLOSIVES. DETECTING THE PRESENCE OF MILITARY EXPLOSIVES INVOLVES TRACE AMOUNTS OF AIRBORNE PARTICLES IN AMBIENT AIR. BECAUSE THE CONCENTRATIONS ARE SO LOW (ON THE ORDER OF 1 UG/M ...
