  1. Anonymous Traffic Probes for Travel Time and O-D using Bluetooth IDs

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 082FH2

    Building upon the successes of an SBIR Phase I project, Traffax Inc. in cooperation with Purdue University proposes in Phase II a large scale deployment of Bluetooth Traffic Monitoring (BTM) technology to exercise real-time capability and continued exploration of BTM arterial specific applications.  Whereas the first phase concentrated on resolving several key issues and demonstrating utility ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Wireless Sensor Network with Accurate Time Synchronization and Wide Area Coverage for Traffic Signal Timing Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 101FH2

    Improved traffic signal timing and traffic incident response are two of the most cost-effective ways of reducing urban arterial network congestion. System-wide analysis of its cause is required to mitigate congestion or excessive traffic delay. Network wide, synchronized and real-time traffic flow data, and Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) data are indispensable for effectively adjusting traffic sig ...

  4. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    PHASE II TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE The major objective of this Phase II proposal is to establish open source traffic simulation model and software, and to develop application programming interfaces to accommodate future traffic research needs. Objectives will be accomplished by building and demonstrating FOMM, an open source traffic simulation model and software. Furthermore, to accommodate future resea ...

  5. Product Development and Demonstration of Sub-Surface Measurements Prototypes for Location and Inspection of Transportation Infrastructure

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    The Advanced Pavement Evaluation (APE) prototype system combines multiple sensors to detect, measure, and assess the condition of sub-surface features, including in-pavement traffic sensors, pavement structures, and defects or deterioration of such structures. In phase II, the research and development efforts produced two distinct prototypes solutions: a step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SF ...

  6. Client-Centered Calibration of the NOAA Climate Forecast System

    SBC: PRESCIENT WEATHER LTD            Topic: 821C

    Prescient Weather proposes four Phase I tasks to increase the value of the new NOAA Climate Forecast System to commercial customers. The capabilities demonstrated and explored in Phase I will be developed and integrated in Phase II as components of a new Seasonal Information and Decision Support System (SIDSS) for our World Climate Service customers. The Phase I tasks are: • Improve season for ...

  7. Extraction of Bioproducts from Algae in Water using Cavitating Jets

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 812SG

    One of the most promising biomass sources for fuels and other feedstocks is photosynthetic algae. Algae can produce lipids, proteins, and other compounds, and can be grown in salt water. Current production practices rely on expensive means of harvesting, concentrating, and extracting the algae. This makes the “bio-crude” produced by algae more expensive than petroleum. Recovering the cellular ...

  8. Multi-Modal Sensor with Real Time Telemetry for Storm Surge and other Meteorological Measurements

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: 836N

    Storm surge poses a grave threat to both life and property as hurricanes make landfall. The ability to monitor surge in real-time using a densely-space network of sensors with integrated data recording and telemetry would provide NOAA with a unique capability. Our approach is to offer a system which incorporates a flexible multi-modal data acquisition platform with integrated telemetry for real-ti ...

  9. Crack Arrest and Structural Repair of High Strength Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructural Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: 07PH1

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest / structural repair technology as a novel crack arrestor tool for high-strength pipelines. The crack arrestor would comprise a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nanocrystalline material applied to the outside of the pipe either in the coating mill during fabrication or in-field during or following constru ...

  10. Structural Repair of Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructured Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest/structural repair technology as a novel in-field pipeline repair tool. The repair would be comprised of a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nancrystalline material applied to the damaged region of the pipe in order to utilize the "crack filling" characteristic of the process. The concept proposed has alr ...
