  1. 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 ...

  2. Addressing the Driving Needs of Short Stature Persons

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: 04NH1

    Phase I research on the development of a supplemental seating system for short stature drivers was undertaken by Safe Inc. in 2005. The purpose of Phase I was to demonstrate the feasibility of a device that would improve the ability of short stature drivers to safely operate a motor vehicle and to improve occupant crash safety. The study sought to examine the use of pedal extenders and other imp ...

  3. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  4. Gas-Kinetic Simulation of Separated Flows

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: SB072006

    This SBIR project proposes to develop a gas-kinetic CFD solver for separated turbulent flow simulation. After successfully developing prototype two-dimensional gas-kinetic BGK-NS/Burnett solvers and demonstrating the benefits of using higher-order hydrodynamic equations for separated turbulent flow simulation in Phase I, the technical objective of Phase II work will be to fully develop and validat ...

  5. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    During the program baseline, LCI will develop an eyesafe, large array RT3D camera system that generates both 3D and 2D grayscale imagery in real-time that can be mounted on the iRobot PackBot. The 3D and 2D grayscale imagery can be fused in software to display both range and albedo information for each pixel in the 3D image, a display that will provide better scene understanding. During the option ...

  6. Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: IRIMSENS, LLC            Topic: SB062015

    Development of new short-wave infrared imaging sensors with signal processing electronics on the same substrate is critical for a number of military and commercial applications. The objective of this research is to develop a new generation of Ge-on-Si p-n heterojunction photodiodes that will culminate in a demonstration of a 64 x 64-pixel infrared imaging array. These photodiodes, whose feas ...

  7. Fundamental Interactions Generating Heterogeneous Teams including Robots (FIGHT-R)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB062009

    Fully autonomous, taskable robots for use in unconstrained environments are still a dream rather than a reality because of a host of problems, including capabilities of existing sensors, effectors, and control/planning software. Indeed, concepts of operations for robot use are tending toward robots collaborating directly with humans, in relationships similar to bomb squad dogs. Fortunately, enough ...

  9. Development of Light-Weight, Low-Cost Multichannels Membrane Reformer

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A novel approach for the development of a lightweight, low-cost, compact, and quick start-up on-board fuel reformer is proposed in this Phase II program. The approach is based on a novel MER¿s technique for the fabrication of multichannel mini-reactors incorporating hydrogen separating membrane. Multichannel mini-reactor shrinks the dimensions through which energy and reactants travel to their ...

  10. Intelligent Automated Software Construction through Researcher Modeling

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to investigate a set of software tools that aid researchers (i.e. scientists, inventors, designers, planners, or investors) in solving complex problems over large sets of data. The DiscoveryToolsTM system will provide acustomer-centered approach to computer automation. The customer (i.e. researcher) encodes problem-solving strategies through an easy-to-use graph ...
