  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Rogue Base Station Situational Awareness Reseach and Development

    SBC: AKAMAI PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 18OATS003

    There is a critical need to detect rogue cellular tower base stations (fake cell towers).Rogue towers are a growing threat to the national cellular phone infrastructure.Initial exploratory tests using 2G and 3G GSM detectors discovered illegal cellular activity in the National Capital Region.Our effort will use both fixed and mobile methodologies to geo-locate rouge cell towers.This process to be ...

  4. Mobile Network Resiliency Research and Development

    SBC: AKAMAI PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 18OATS002

    There is a requirement to reduce the vulnerability of commercial voice and data networks. These vulnerabilities include cyber-attacks such as SS7, or that which would occur after an EMP event. The cellular network is also vulnerable to external monitoring and tracking. This effort will design, develop, and implement a resilient 4G LTE / First Net cellular capability. To accomplish this, the effort ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. HunchLab for EMS: A Low-Cost, Multi-Screen Performance Management Solution for Underserved Agencies

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: HSB0161006

    The goal of this research is to explore the feasibility of providing a low-cost Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to assist underserved Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies of all sizes to better analyze and improve operations through real-time data analysis. Delivering a data analysis suite tuned to key performance indicators of EMS agencies as an online, cloud subscription will result ...

  7. Portable Linear Accelerator (linac) for Active Interrogation Systems for Radiological Gamma Isotope Source Replacement

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: HSB0161013

    Orphaned radioactive sources represent an ever-increasing security threat as potential materials for fabrication of "dirty bombs" and other illicit applications. According to the 2008 NAS report, the major radioisotope sources used in the United States are Cs-137 (~3M Ci @662keV) and Co-60 (~200M Ci @1.2-1.3MeV) for industrial radiography, measurement and irradiation applications. A large number ...

  8. Long Range ROW Detection and Warning System

    SBC: NAVMAR APPLIED SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 151FR7

    Rail line intrusion events, initiated by dismounted individuals on foot or in vehicles, often result in devastating collisions with a train, with outcomes unfavorably to the intruder. A need exists for a locomotive mounted advanced remote detection system that can autonomously detect and characterize an intruder, at a distance, alerting the operating engineer to take corrective action. Navmar Appl ...

  9. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Drivers searching extensively for parking, a behavior known as cruising, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue in recent years. However, the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. We propose to develop a low cost approach to automatic detection of cruising behavior using dense netwo ...

  10. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    This proposal leverages our current DOT-funded SBIR Phase II project developing software to assist truck drivers and companies to fatigue optimize driver scheduling and route planning. This project will build a set of web-services specially designed to provide objective quantitative feedback to truck drivers, dispatchers, and safety managers about fatigue from fatigue stressors common in trucking ...
