  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  8. Instrumented Anchor Pin for Heavy Truck Brake

    SBC: Stratcom International Llc            Topic: N/A

    The bonded resistance strain gage has made possible a varety of force sensing transducers, commonly known as "load cells." Widely used types of load cells include the column, the bending beam, the ring, the circular plat and the shear web. To instrument the anchor pins used in heavy truck air braking systems, STRAINSERT will utilize proven research and evaluation techniques implemented during th ...

  9. Innovative Energy Absorbing Composite Utility Poles

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Utility poles present a serious roadside hazard due to the large number of poles located in close proximity to the roadways and the unforgiving nature of existing pole designs. Breakaway wooden utility poles have been developed over the past twenty years in an effort to improve utility pole safety, but these designs have not gained widespread acceptance. In order to realize safer utility poles w ...

  10. Single Crystal Relaxor Ferroelectrics for High Performance Bio-Medical Ultrasound Transducers

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The TRP-SBIR project will address the synthesis and characterization of single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics for high performance bio-medical transducers. The ability to grow single crystals of various relaxor-based compositions with specific crystallographic orientations offers piezoelectric, dielectric and electro-mechanical properties not achieveable in ploycrystalline PZT ceramics. Limitati ...
