  1. Enhancing Subseasonal and Seasonal (S2S) Forecasts

    SBC: PRESCIENT WEATHER LTD            Topic: 9301

    Computer forecasts of weather and climate variability created by the U.S. and other nations on the subseasonal scale (weeks) and on the seasonal scale (months) are increasingly used by private and public activities to mitigate risk and seize opportunity. These forecasts are produced as ensembles of tens of individual computer forecasts and are most useful when calibrated by comparing histories of ...

  3. Improved Condition Monitoring of Traction Motors

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 190FR5

    Identification of defects and incipient failures before the breakdown of the equipment is recognized as an important maintenance activity in the railroad industry to improve efficiency and safety of the operation. It is well known that a proper implementation of condition monitoring improves the overall equipment reliability and reduces unexpected field failures. Traction motor faults can result i ...

  4. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challenge facing pipeline operators is that many pipelines are old, making their structural integrity uncertain, and that material pedigree of the pipeline steel is unknown. Therefor ...

  5. Non-Equilibrium Short-Pulsed Discharge for Removal of Antibiotics and Pathogens from Water used in Aquacultural Facilities

    SBC: AA Plasma LLC            Topic: 9101

    "Seafood consumption in the United States has risen to over 50% per capita over the last 25 years with over 75% of total U.S. seafood consumption coming from import. These trends, if continued, place a high importance on the safety aspect of seafood trade. Despite the lack of evidence supporting higher risk in imported food, many of the U.S. seafood import sources are located in tropical areas whe ...

  6. Advancing Flood Extent Delineation Modeling Using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: 9503

    The proposed research will advance flood inundation mapping and enhance situational awareness in disaster response situations through a combination of machine learning techniques and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. One of the most difficult challenges during the early stages of a flood event is acquiring timely, unobstructed Earth observation data that can provide lifesaving insight into the ...

  7. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels 3/16/2018 Ultrasound-based technology to nondestructively determine fracture toughness of pipeline steels will be developed. Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challeng ...

  8. Adaptive Mapping of the Gulf Dead Zone with AutonomousSurface Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV), LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Gliders alone are incapable of monitoring the shallower regions of the hypoxic zone under conditions when the density gradient is strong, therefore surface vehicles are required to autonomously collect a suite of oceanographic observations from surface waters and profile this portion of the hypoxic zone. Autonomous Surface Vehicles, LLC (ASV, LLC) is partnering with Integral Co ...

  9. Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder

    SBC: Brandywine Photonics, LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose developing a new observational capability for measuring upper atmosphere (20-Km to 200-Km+ altitude) wind and temperature dynamics, based on Doppler imaging of Limb concentrations of NO, N2O, and CO2 called the Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder. The principle of operation is that by measuring the Doppler shift of trace gases created by the differential velocity betwee ...

  10. Automated parking-cruising detection and measurement using Bluetooth AVI Sensor network

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Searching for street parking, a behavior known as cruising for parking, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many recent smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue, but the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. The goal of this work is to develop methods to detect and measure cruising for parking and its effects on congestion u ...
