  1. Multi-Point Optical Sensor-Based Roof Measurement System for Use in Dynamic Rollover Testing

    SBC: Boxboro Systems LLC            Topic: 07NH2

    An optical, non-contact roof deformation monitoring system will be designed based on an existing multi-point, non-contact, multi-axis optical sensor-based measurement system that is currently used to measure chest deflection in crash-test dummies. The research involves determining suitable components to be used in the optical path, from high-power LED arrays through lenses and optical sensors. T ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT RESIDUAL LIFE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ECONOMIC FACTORS CONTINUE TO RESULT IN COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT BEING OPERATED WELL BEYOND THEIR INITIAL DESIGN LIFE. FURTHER, EACH OF THESE AIRCRAFT EXPERIENCES A SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT LOADS AND ENVIRONMENT HISTORY. IN ORDER TO ACCURATELY CALCULATE THE REMAINING LIFE FOR ANY GIVEN AIRCRAFT, AND THEREBY PERMIT IT TO OPERATE SAFELY BEYOND ITS INITIAL DESIGN LIFE, THE HISTORY OF THAT AIRCRAFT MUST BE K ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. "METHOD TO ENHANCE SENSITIVITY IN DETECTING AIRBORNE EXPLOSIVES"

    SBC: Lsr Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BESIDES ENSURING AIR SAFETY, THERE ARE ECONOMIC REASONS FOR DEVELOPING A HIGH SENSITIVITY EXPLOSIVE DETECTING SYSTEM. SUCH A SYSTEM WOULD ALLOW A QUICK, ACCURATE, AND RELIABLE SCREENING OF AIRCRAFT SUSPECTED OF CARRYING EXPLOSIVES. DETECTING THE PRESENCE OF MILITARY EXPLOSIVES INVOLVES TRACE AMOUNTS OF AIRBORNE PARTICLES IN AMBIENT AIR. BECAUSE THE CONCENTRATIONS ARE SO LOW (ON THE ORDER OF 1 UG/M ...

  9. A New Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Motorcycle Detection and Classification

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Detection, classification, and characterization are the key to enhancing motorcycle safety, operations and travel estimation. Motorcycle fatalities are currently estimated at 30 times those of auto fatalities per Vehicle Mile Traveled (VMT). Although it has been an active research area for many years, motorcycle detection and classification still remains as a challenging task. The goal of Phase I ...

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

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

    In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow simulation models will be developed and demonstrated in the Phase I. In addition, areas identified by th ...
