  1. A Compact Neutron Spectrometer Based Upon Inorganic Hydrogenous Scintillators

    SBC: Merril Corporation of Utah, dba MSI Photogenics            Topic: N/A

    Mission Support proposes to develop a compact, self-contained neutron spectrometer for MeV neutrons that will be suitable for the detection of the nitrogen, oxygen and carbon components in explosive materials. Neutron-resonance-radiographic techniques will be employed to detect the presence of these materials through their distinctive total-neutron-cross-section resonances. The detector insures ...

  2. A Higher Performance Traffic Detector Built on SmartSensor HD and Multi-Beam Radar Technology

    SBC: WAVETRONIX LLC            Topic: 091FH3

    Wavetronix currently sells the SmartSensor HD radar detection which is the highest performance above ground detector currently available.  However, the count, speed and classification accuracy can be significantlly improved by employing multi-beam radar technology which we have recently developed.  Multi-beam radar technology allows multiple radars to be used cost effectively inside a si ...

  3. A LOW-COST NEUTRON TRANSMISSION/SCATTERING TECHNIQUE FOR EXPLOSIVE DETECTION.

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED USING A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE LOW-FLUX, ISOTOPIC SOURCE AND MULTIPLE DETECTORS FOR SPECTRAL TRANSMISSION/SCATTERING RADIATION DATA TO OBTAIN CHARACTERISTIC SIGNATURES OF EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS. THE AMOUNT AND ENERGY OF SCATTERING DEPENDS ON THE DENSITY, COMPOSITION AND SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF THE MATERIAL, WHILE NEUTRON TRANSMISSION DEPENDS ON THE ATTENUATION CAPABILITY ...

  5. An Optimized Semi-Flush Flasher

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Lightweight structures are demanding for high inach vehicles and engine exhaust impinged structures subjected to high temperatures. Currently used polyimide composites have limited service temperatures whereas titanium alloys have much higher densities than those of advanced composites. This Phase I research proposes the processing of high temperature sandwich structures using micro ...

  6. An Optimized Semi-Flush Flasher

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a full prototype next-generation semi-flush flasher system for airport runway approach lighting. Current systems are many years old and inefficient; airports need inset flashers to add runway length and more efficiently use strictly limited land allocations. An inset flasher is proposed that is optimized both optically and electrically. A flasher fixture based on the P ...

  7. A System for Automated Reduciton of MPEG-1 Encoded Facial Videos

    SBC: M-VISION INC            Topic: N/A

    Not Available We propose to design and build an analog VLSI smart-pixel wavefront-sensor chip that will drive a deformable membrane mirror to correct rapidly changing wavefront distortions. On-chip detectors will sense the error signal in local wavefront tilts using a Hartmann-sensor within a feedback loop. The error signal is then used to drive the membrane mirror to the phase conjugate of the i ...

  8. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...

  9. Belt Shift Interlock Delay/Deaccelerator with Learning Curve Software to increase Seatbelt Usage on commercial Vehicles

    SBC: The Tenik Group Inc.            Topic: 07FM1

    Various methods for increasing seat belt usage have been investigated over the last several years including visual and audible warnings currently installed in today's vehicles. In spite of these attempts, FMCSA research has shown that drivers of about 59% of commercial motor vehicles (those weighing over 10,000 pounds or more that operate in interstate commerce) buckle their safety belts as compa ...
