  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  4. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  6. Driver-Vehicle-Interface for a Transit Collision Avoidance System

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

    Not Available Joint Vision 2010 utilized operational concepts of Dominant Maneuver, Precision Engagement, Focused Logistics and Full Dimensional Protection with Information Superiority for join warfighting. A key challenge in this vision is understanding how advanced sensors combined with information Superiority can be exploited for a system of systems (SoS) approach. The AFRL vision is to prov ...

  7. Advanced Wheel/Rail Interaction Force Measurement System

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

    Not Available A novel anti-jam GPS antenna concept is proposed that is an alternative to the complex and expensive Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) currently in use. This approach, called the L-CRPA, can utilize installation foot prints as small as a Fixed Reception Pattern Antenna (FRPA) and provide three modes of operation. Mode-1 provides a typical broad-coverage FRPA pattern for si ...

  8. Deveopment of Protocols and Instrumentation for the Measurement of Exhaust Emissions from Alternatively-Fueled Internal Combustion Engines

    SBC: ION OPTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Combining proton exchange membrane fuel cells with electrolyzers (PEMFC/EC) can offer higher efficiencies, higher power, long endurance missions. However, current proton exchange membrane fuel cell/electrolyzer PEMFC/ED systems need to improve the projected power and energy densities. PEMFC/EC systems, have previously been investigated for providing regenerative power based on one s ...

  9. Bus Rapid Transit Simulation Model

    SBC: Multisystems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available We propose to use microelectromechanical system (MEMS) switches to develop reconfigurable antenna concepts for the Global Hawk Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The current need is an antenna that can relay communications from HF to K band, and serve radar functions from VHF to X band. Reconfigurable antennas will be developed that can serve multiple frequency bands using a common aper ...

  10. Roadway Pavement Condition Sensor

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

    Not Available The purpose of this proposed effort is to provide a design for a new generation of GPS CRPA antennas which will have superior anti-am performance against a larger number of intentional or unintentional interfering sources than is presently possible. At the same time, this new antenna system (including electronics) will be designed for minimum cost in commercially production quantiti ...
