  1. 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 ...

  3. Efficient Materials for Optical Cryocoolers

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: CBD171001

    This Phase-I SBIR proposal directly addresses the need to improve the size, weight and power, SWaP, of optical cryocoolers. In particular, the proposers will work toward increasing the efficiency of optical cryocoolers by incorporating cooling materials that require less input laser power to achieve a given heat lift. The new cooling materials will be high-purity crystals doped with active rare-ea ...

  4. Open-Path Optical Analyzer for Quantitative Chemical Weapons Detection

    SBC: MESH, INC.            Topic: CBD171004

    Existing U.S. military chemical point sensors such as the JCAD can only provide qualitative detection/ identification results for CWAs and TICs. MESH is proposing to develop a low cost, active FTIR system with a variable optical path within a short open external distance from the sensor. This system will be capable of multicomponent analysis including chemical identification and quantification. Lo ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  8. Microfiber-Based Closures with Hermetic Sealing for Chem Bio Protective Garments

    SBC: nanoGriptech, Inc.            Topic: CBD13109

    Hook and loop closures in Army uniforms have been identified as the critical sources of leaks in protective clothing/equipment, which limits the overall protective capability of the ensemble. We demonstrated during Phase I of this project that we can design and fabricate hybrid closure systems which incorporate areas of microfiber adhesive arrays inspired by the foot-hairs found on geckos which ha ...

  9. Development of a long-acting, injectable controlled release butyrylcholinesterase formulation using predictive modeling.

    SBC: Qrono, Inc.            Topic: CBD13107

    Elevated levels of human butyrylcholinesterase (hBuChE) confer protection from chemical warfare nerve agents and other organophosphorous chemicals. As a prophylactic, the key to enabling this protection is the ability to maintain elevated concentrations of hBuChE in the plasma for days or weeks. Thus far, plasma-derived hBuChE and PEGylated recombinant forms of BuChE (rBuChE) have been tested in ...

  10. Composite Cylinder Life-Cycle In-Service Assessment

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: 101PH1

    Current inspection, maintenance and lifetime estimation practices for composite cylinders have been adopted from earlier NASA research. WavesinSolids LLC are proposing a technological based on an acoustic emission (AE) technique for the in-service testing of composite cylinders. The approach will establish the correlation between AE activity and intensity metrics and the stress intensity factor, a ...
