  1. Aircraft Wiring Integrity Verification using Pseudo-Random Binary Sequence

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our approach to aircraft wiring inspection is to inject a special type of low level probe signal into the cable to be tested. The system response to this special input can be used to give the complete transfer function of the cable. Incipient failures in the cable will be detectable as subtle changes in that transfer function, or cross-correlation between probe input signal and response, includi ...

  2. Strain Sensors for Unbound Layers in Flexible Airport Pavements Using Pulsed Radar

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed details an innovative and powerful approach to measuring large-scale soil strain under pavement subjected to periodic loading. We propose to use Time-Modulated Ultra Wide Band (TM-UWB) impulse radar, in combination with a MEMS based passive sensor acting like a transponder embedded in the soil layer. The passive sensor is based on Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology. Our propos ...

  4. Development and Testing of a Pedestrian Alert System

    SBC: OPTIMUS Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The project involves the final design, development, and testing of system designed to alert a driver to an impending pedestrian crash. A PAS was designed to mitigate a primary crash cause by enhancing the motorist¿s capability to detect pedestrians. Phase I showed that the PAS concept will provide all weather operation, non-LOS operation around visual screens, pedestrian detection at close an ...

  6. A Low-Cost In-flight Deicing System for Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is a deicing system for aircraft leading edges using a high-efficiency, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer. The entire aircraft industry needs this technology to improve safety while minimizing the overall impact on aircraft weight and fuel consumption. We propose to use a low-cost, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer to break the ice bond in a manner similar ...

  7. FRP Smart Composite Pipe System

    SBC: SDR Engineering Consultants, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research develops an innovative solution for a new SMART pipe system utilizing high-density polyethylene/fiber reinforced polymer (HDPE/FRP) composite system. The new pipe system utilizes a combination of three interacting materials: FFRP, HDPE, and concrete and is equipped with wireless sensors to provide mentoring capabilities during operations. The proposed system is suitable fo ...

  10. Rapid Rail Inspection System

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will use an ultrasonic beam traveling longitudinally along the rail rather that the complex normal and angle-beams transducer assemblies in current systems. Detection of transverse defects becomes a simple pulse-echo application and resolves many inherent speed, inspection reliability and robustness problems in current rail inspection systems. The simplified procedure will increase ...
