  1. 6 Dimensional Sensor Package (6DSP)

    SBC: Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07NH1

    Understanding the kinematics of intruding structures (floor plans, doors, roofs, etc.) as well as dummy motions is critical to safety related research. DTS believes the best way to acquire this data is to use small lightweight sensor packages to dynamically track the motion of single points using six degrees-of-freedom measurements. This methodology does not require line of sight to the measured ...

  2. A First Responder Tool for Rapic, Efficient, and Effective Response to Hazardous Material Incidents

    SBC: QUIMBA SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: 07PH2

    The nightmare scenario in HAZMAT transport (or storage) is an incident in the proximity of a densely populated area. This issue is so critical that Congress has, on a number of occasions, considered restricting HAZMAT transportation, routing it around metropolitan areas. While so far such restrictions have not been implemented, the HAZMAT transportation industry faces mounting legal and insuranc ...

  3. Microwave Thermoreflectometry for Corrosion Detection in Concrete

    SBC: NEWPORT SENSORS INC            Topic: 07FH2

    This SBIR project will explore innovative application of the PI's proprietary microwave imaging technology to time-resolved thermoreflectometry for non-destructive detection of rebar corrosion in concrete. This is based on the principle that a corrosion layer surronding the rebar serves as a thermal insulator and, as a result, corroded rebars cools more slowly than uncorroded ones upon heating. ...

  4. A fast pulsed, high flux neutron source for remote 3D imaging of IEDs

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: AF073009

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect IED in the field. Our source offers a

  5. Portable Active Damage Inspection (PADI) system for stress-corrosion cracks in aerospace structures

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF073109

    Safety, reliability, and life-cycle cost are of great concern to the aging aircraft manufacturing and maintenance industries. Acellent Technologies proposes to develop an accurate, reliable integrated system for detection, prediction and mitigation of aging and manufacturing related hazards in civilian and military aircraft. The objective of the proposed program will be to provide the U.S. Air For ...

  6. Production of New Durable, Transparent Conductive Coatings


    Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is currently used as a transparent electrically conductive coating on aircraft canopies to provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding for electronic components. The problem with ITO is that it is relatively soft and scratches easily, requiring frequent replacement of the windscreen, leading to high maintenance costs and aircraft downtime. In addition, ITO is applie ...

  7. Non-Invasive Model Attitude and Deformation Measurement

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06298

    A system for high-resolution, real-time (40Hz), non-invasive wind tunnel attitude and deformation measurement is proposed. The system combines projection of structured laser light with photography of the illuminated surface. Photogrammetric techniques are used to obtain the three dimensional shape of the surface. Whereas most structured light systems employ a repeating pattern of lines, the prop ...

  8. Software Integration for Computational Cognitive Models in Virtual Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Cognitive Systems            Topic: AF07T020

    Development of a general purpose software interface between cognitive models and 3D virtual environments requires innovation and research in cognitive abstractions and interfaces, as well as a thoughtful application of software architecture and engineering principles. We propose to embed these innovative cognitive abstractions in a middleware layer that offers “plug-and-play” operation for ar ...

  9. Short Pulse Neutron Generator

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF073009

    A short-pulsed neutron generator is proposed for the detection of concealed high explosives. A recently developed RF-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse length is 5-10 ns with a repetition rate of 100 kHz. Using the D-T nuclear reaction, we expect the proposed generator to produce an average yield of 10E9 n/s at this pulse length and rate ...

  10. Development of Flow-Field Seeding for Large Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: AF06297

    The Air Force seeks a large production wind tunnel seeding system with full field steering capability. Additionally, the system must offer control of the particle size and density along with minimal maintenance and flow disturbance characteristics. These features will increase tunnel productivity, and compliment nonintrusive flow visualization techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) ...
