  1. Digital Imaging of Pipeline Mechanical Damage and Residual Stress

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined.  The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining life.  Empirical relationships between damage features and burst pressure have been developed and ...

  2. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    Automated vehicle counting technology has been in use for many years, but developments in automated pedestrian counting technology have been limited.  Pedestrians are more difficult to detect, track and count, than motor vehicles because their paths are much less constrained.  In Phae I, we propose to develop a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting.  In this sys ...

  3. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users


    The overall objective of the HSGR Program is to develop a high sensitivity military GPS receiver to provide reliable GPS navigation, under weak GPS signal conditions, to ground based military GPS users. Mayflower’s approach to meet this HSGR program objective is to design, develop and incorporate “high-sensitivity” signal processing enhancements (namely, Vector Tracking (VT) and Multi-bit GP ...

  4. Device and Strategy for Shock Wave Mitigation

    SBC: LARRY HILL CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: 091FH1

    Substantial simulation work has been done showing that traffic shock-waves can be reduced or eliminated through "cooperative adaptive cruise control" and "communicating cruise control" where following vehicles are warned that leading vehicles are slowing in time to react. To be effective, however, such devices must be installed and operate in the majority of vehicles in the queue. Even if mandat ...

  5. Seat Belt Non-usage Warning System

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

    Highway fatalities per 100 million vehicle-miles have declined from a high of 5.1 in 1960 to 1.5 in 1999. Increased use of seat belts undoubtedly is responsible for a significant portion of this decline. The goal of DOT¿s ¿Buckle Up America¿ campaign, initiated in 1997, is to increase the seat belt usage rate to 90 percent by 2005. However, current seat belt usage falls short of this goal. ...

  6. Automated Communications Analysis System

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Synthetic environment exercises are a critical component in the DOD's strategy for testing CONOPS, training soldiers, and evaluating equipment. Communication is a vital component of these exercises, and communications data is a valuable information sourcefor AAR facilitation. However, communications analysis requires time-consuming transcription and processing.Technologies are being developed to ...

  7. Instructional System for Enhancing Seakeeping Cognitive Readiness and Decision-Making Skills

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Planing hull craft pose unique safety challenges. The Mark V Special Operations Craft, for instance, carries Special Operations Forces in littoral waters and travels at very high speeds. Failure to adequately negotiate wave conditions may result ininjury to the crew and damage to the craft. The requisite seakeeping skills, however, are difficult to master. What is needed is a comprehensive ins ...

  8. Design and Validation of Simulation-based Training for Emergency First Responders

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Simulation-based training is a promising instructional tool for training first responder military and civilian emergency personnel but its growth and adoption into practical use in training programs has been significantly hindered by the lack ofvalidation. We will address this challenge through two interrelated objectives. We will design a validated training program for first responders that us ...

  9. Warrior Readiness for Coalition and Collaborative Teams

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The focus of this proposal is to develop a system that is responsive to the needs of military leaders in developing and maintaining high performance, multinational teams. In Phase I we will define requirements for a scenario-based assessment and trainingsystem. The system will be derived from a training needs assessment specifically intended to identify competencies for multinational teams. Ba ...

  10. Structured electrolytes for lighweight fuel cells

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "Compact and lightweight power sources are needed for communication, computation and sensors. There are no solid proton conductors that work satisfactorily between 200 and 500¿C. This is a most important and desirable range of operating temperatures forsmall and scalable fuel cells. This research explores the feasibility of developing structured solid-state proton conductors that operate effi ...
