  1. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  3. Wireless Brake Shoe Force Measurement System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 04FR1

    Railroad freight car safety and maintenance cost is directly related to knowledge of the actual braking force provided by a brake shoe. If the brake force is too low, safety is at risk. If the brake shoe is replaced before the end of it's lifetime to ensure safety, maintenance and thus operating costs are increased. Currently there is no system in place to monitor brake shoe force during train ...

  4. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  5. DETECTION OF EXPLOSIVES VAPOR AT THE PPT LEVEL WITH A LASER INTERFEROMETRIC CALORIMETER

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY (SRL) HAS DEMONSTRATED, UNDER FUNDING FROM SDIO, AN ULTRASENSITIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE REAL-TIME MEASUREMENT OF ABSORPTION DUE TO TRACE GASES IN THE ATMOSPHERE. THE SRL TECHNIQUE, CALLER LASER INTERFEROMETRIC CALORIMETRY (LIC) IS SIMILAR IN PRINCIPLE TO LASER OPTO-ACOUSTIC (LOA) SPECTROSCOPY WHICH HAS BEEN UTILIZED FOR OVER 15 YEARS TO DETECT TRACE CONCENTRATIONS OF VAPOR ...
