  1. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...

  2. 120-X-2 Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric & Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensing

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 84

    To capture critical weather and SST data in the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer (TCBL), Piasecki Aircraft proposes to evaluate existing meteorological sensor packages, integrate new off-the-shelf MEMS sensors, and design an air-launched UAS to improve the resolution of observations captured in the TCBL. Capturing latent and sensible heat fluxes can be achieved reliably with a powered UAS (compare ...

  3. Self-Contained Sub-Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Ref ...

  4. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    High performance steels were developed in a cooperative program between the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), and the U.S. Navy Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center. HPS70W high strength steel is currently being used in bridge structures. HPS is stronger than conventional 70W steel and has less than 15% of the sulfur and 60% of th ...

  5. Feasibility of an ultrasonic based instrument for assessing in-situ pipeline coatings

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FBS, Inc. proposes to establish the feasibility of an ultrasonically based device for in-situ evaluation of pipeline coatings and for the archiving of coating properties. Based on our experience gained through DOT and EPRI sponsored work on long range ultrasonics, buried pipes, and tar coated pipes we recognize the need for coating characterization not only as an important factor for inspection d ...

  6. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser Technology Inc. has demonstrated for the first time, the detection of non-visible cracks of less than 10 microns soon after casting of high performance concrete test prisms. Fine cracks may be associated with the two leading causes of concrete deterioration, delayed ettringite formation and alkali-silica reaction. Laser Technology is a leading developer, manufacturere and provider of laser ...
