  1. CLASP Phase II: producing a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler Commercial Prototype

    SBC: Green Eyes, LLC            Topic: 814

    In our Phase I test, Green Eyes successfully demonstrated the feasibility of a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler (CLASP) system capable of autonomous operation for one year. The feasibility prototype also incorporated two-way telemetry and near real-time display of processed data. CLASP uses a profiling pump to deliver water to a flow-through multi probe sensor and additional ...

  2. 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. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The techniques uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated im ...

  5. N/A

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The key innovation of this proposal is the use of Time Modulated Ultra-Wideband (TM-UWB) technology to develop a low cost radio system that allows both voice communication and tracking positions of fire fighters inside buildings. This radio has several characteristics which make it ideal for tracking multiple individuals without line-of-sight. During Phase I we have performed many tests, incl ...
