  1. TrainAid: A Smart Onboard Railroad Passenger Information and Entertainment System

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 171FR4

    Onboard railroad passenger information system (OPIS) is an electronic system that provides audio and/or visual information for passengers on a train. However, information received by passengers is not guaranteed since the information and service provided by the OPISs are diverse and without a common standard. Therefore, we propose a Smart Onboard Passenger Information and Entertainment, TrainAid, ...

  2. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...

  3. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range Coastal HF Radars Below 11 MHz

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 824

    The U.S. High Frequency Radar (HFR) network contains more than 140 coastal stations that provide hourly two-dimensional coastal surface currents. Approximately one-third of these are Long Range (LR) systems that transmit in the 4 – 5.5 MHz frequency band and have nominal offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 3 – 6 km, respectively. The data provided by the network has numerous appl ...

  4. Crowdsourcing Coastal data with Low Cost IOT CTD / Hydrophone

    SBC: Swift Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 833

    This paper proposes development of a low cost combined hydrophone and CTD sensor, with wireless communication and software support to upload data to National Geographic’s FieldKit. This will enable citizen scientists to collect conductivity, temperature, depth, and ocean noise measurements on an adhoc basis while contributing to a single large data repository which will allow for deep analysis o ...

  5. Micro-fluidic Photometer with Adaptive Mask

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used to convey the particl ...

  6. High-Sensitivity, Miniaturized CO Sensor for Airborne Use on Small UAVs

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 835R

    The team of Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI), TruWeather Solutions, LLC., and Latitude Engineering, LLC. propose to develop a novel, high sensitivity, fast response, solid state, electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor system for use in small UAVs which is capable of PPB level atmospheric measurements. The sensor is based on a thick film multi-element potentiometric micro sensor approach which has bee ...

  7. Capillary Absorption Spectrometer for In-Situ, Underwater Gas Analysiss

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 826R

    We will produce a prototype Capillary Absorption Spectrometer (CAS) capable of measuring dissolved methane in water. The concept utilizes mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy within a hollow fiber optic capillary that both confines a gas sample and acts as an optical waveguide. A tunable laser beam propagates through the hollow fiber to a detector with near unity overlap between the beam and ...

  8. BE-ROVER Benthic Environment-ROV Extensible Robotrmingar System)

    SBC: Robo Nautica, LLC            Topic: 821N

    There is currently no low-cost, high performance minimally invasive, bottom-crawling ROV system for monitoring coastal and littoral benthic environments which is also deployable by a single marine researcher. Such a system augmenting divers’ observations would greatly expand the quantity and quality of data critical to managing coastal environments and preserving the economic benefits derived by ...

  9. Small UAS Platform for NWS Missions

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841W

    NOAA and in particular, the National Weather Service (NWS), have an unmet need of a cost feasible small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) which can support multiple sensing missions which will either directly save lives or indirectly save lives through improved weather forecasts, warnings and public alerts. NOAA has enumerated two dozen valuable applications of small UAS for itself and partners. Toyon ...

  10. Space weather based position error maps for TEC- On-line (SpoT-On)

    SBC: SPACE ENVIRONMENT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 831

    The Space weather-based position error maps for TEC-On-Line (SpoT-On) project will use GPS=GNSS based TEC data, integrated into the Global Assimilation of Ionospheric Measurements (GAIM) operational system at the Utah State University Space Weather Center to product improved TEC position correction maps. These will be publicly and globally accessible. A result is that agencies, industry and consum ...
