  1. Wireless Brake Shoe Force Measurement System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In line with the DOT's desire to encourage the development of a wireless brake shoe force measurement system, Mide will use its extensive experience on loadcell design, energy power-harvesting and wireless data transmission to develop an accurate system for the self-powered, wireless measurement of brake shoe forces on Railroad freight cars. Piezo or coil/magnet proof mass devices will harvest vi ...

  2. Infrasonic Frequency Seismic Sensor System for Pipeline Integrity Management

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) is working with the NYSEARCH suborganization of the Northeast Gas Association (NGA) to develop the Proactive Infrasonic Gas Pipeline Evaluation Network (PIGPEN) system to detect and warn of third-party damage before it occurs. PIGPEN uses low frequency seismic/acoustic (0.1 to 100 Hz) sensor technology to proactively detect and warn of unauthorized activity near the un ...

  3. Wireless Magnetic Workzone System

    SBC: VehicleSense Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I we will develop a work zone collision system consisting of "smart barrels" and a central communications computer. The "smart barrels" will incorporate magnetic sensors, an LED display, and wireless communications resulting in a unit that can accurately measure the speed of passing vehicles and relay this information to adjacent barrels and the central communications computer. The ...

  4. Noninvasive Treatment of Hemorrhagic Shock

    SBC: ADVANCED CIRCULATORY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A03178

    Shock secondary to acute blood loss remains the number one cause of death for our soldiers. Furthermore, heat shock and dehydration remain a common cause of cardiovascular collapse for our military personnel, especially as operations move increasingly into desert combat. The main objective of this proposal is to continue the development of the inspiratory impedance threshold device (ITD); an opera ...

  5. Wave Energy Harvesting to Power Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N05T021

    Recent world events have highlighted the need for timely and accurate intelligence data to assess threats and combat terror. An unmanned surface vehicle (USV ) can potentially perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, provide force protection, hunt for mines in coastal waters or harbors, and provide port security. USVs under development by the Navy are powered by the ...

  6. Field-Expedient Combat Load Assessment Device (CLAD)

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A05176

    Field combat load assessment for combat training and combat mission personnel load management is an identified military need. The combat load assessment device or CLAD must meet several requirements not found in off-the-shelf commercial or consumer weighing devices. Weight requirements, accuracy requirements, functional requirements, and cost requirements prohibit the use of currently OTS hardwa ...

  7. Vulnerabilty Assessment and Prioritization Methodology (VAPM)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: SB052013

    This project will develop and deploy a comprehensive force protection vulnerability analysis process that accommodates diverse and large geographic areas, public events, infrastructure interdependencies, attacker goals, means, and methods, and defender priorities. This process will be based on the Vulnerability Assessment and Prioritization Methodology (VAPM) originally developed and applied to do ...

  8. An Accurate, Efficient Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Algorithm for TAWS

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A05053

    A core process for sensor performance prediction is the radiative transport algorithm used to convert the scene environmental characteristics into radiance. Numeric approximations are often used to enhance execution time at the expense of overall radiometric accuracy. However, many radiative transfer approximations have limited applicability, working only for a set of atmospheric conditions, sen ...

  9. Simulation of Stressing Optical Clutter for Scene Generation

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA04154

    This effort will characterize the spatial structure and real world features of stressing atmospheric phenomena and develop techniques to efficiently represent these phenomena in optical/infrared background models. Our approach to this problem involves locating and identifying stressing backgrounds contained in measurements and extracting key clutter characteristics in a form that allows t ...

  10. Characterization of mesoscale weather prediction errors for dispersion modeling

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: DTRA04003

    DTRA uses high-resolution mesoscale forecasts to drive HPAC, the DTRA dispersion modeling tool that generates critical forecasts of dosage resulting from releases of chemical, biological, or radiological agents. HPAC is designed to provide probablistic information based on estimates of the uncertainty of the input forecast fields of the meteorological variables (wind, temperature, etc.). ...
