  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. High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9020663R

    Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to perform a single measurement. Moreover, manufacturers are interested in comprehensive evaluation of thin ...

  3. An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

    SBC: Polymer Bridge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed in 1 eight-hour day; and 4) be cost-competitive on an installed cost basis. This bridge will be buil ...

  4. Determination of the Onset of Widespread Fatigue Damage

    SBC: Qual-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QUAL-X proposes to nondestructively inspect the extensive surface areas of aging commercial airliners for corrosion and fatigue damage. QUAL-X will characterize the above surfaces both at local and global areas of interest using chemical gas penetrants and advanced gas sensor techniques; both of which were developed as an extension of the company's unique and singular experience with the ket gas ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF FIBER OPTIC APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS

    SBC: Edjewise Sensor Products Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEW LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING FIBER OPTICS AND HIGH EFFICIENCY ARC SOURCES, WILL BE APPLIED IN THIS PHASE I PROJECT TO DEVELOP INNOVATIVE APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS (ALS) FOR AIRPORT RUNWAYS. THE GOAL IS TO REPLACE THE LARGE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUAL INCANDESCENT SPOT LIGHTS PRESENTLY IN SUCH SYSTEMS WITH REMOTE SOURCES COUPLED TO OPTICAL WAVEGUIDES THAT WILL TRANSMIT AND PROJECT THE REQUIRED HIG ...

  6. DESIGNING DISPLAYS AND DECISION SUPPORTS USING COGNITIVE SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    SCREENING BAGGAGE AND PASSENGERS FOR CONCEALED WEAPONS AND EXPLOSIVES REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT COMPONENT OF THE AVIATION SECURITY SYSTEM. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES ENHANCE OUR ABILITY TO OBTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHAPE AND COMPOSITION OF CONCEALED ITEMS. HOWEVER, THE DEVELOPMENT OF DECISION SUPPORTS TO PRESENT THIS INFORMATION TO THE OPERATOR HAS LAGGED BEHIND. HOW A SYSTEM PRESENTS INFORMATIO ...

  7. NEURAL NETWORK AUGMENTED GPS/LORAN-C NAVIGATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Netrologic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NETROLOGIC PROPOSES TO BUILD A NAVIGATION SYSTEM FOR SHIPS WHICH INTEGRATES GPS AND LORAN-C. THE GPS SYSTEM PROVIDES ASF ERROR CORRECTION TO LORAN-C SO THAT THE CORRECTED LORAN-C IS ABLE TO FURNISH NEAR GPS QUALITY GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION INFORMATION. IN AREAS WHERE DGPS IS AVAILABLE THE DGPS SIGNAL CAN BE FURNISHED AS A REFERENE TO REALIZE CORRESPONDING GAINS IN ACCURACY FOR CORRECTED LORAN0-C. A N ...
