  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations.  This project will deliver an individualized Fatigue Management Program (FMP) technology for trucking operations th ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Bio-Inspired Dry Fibrillar Adhesives for Enhanced Sealing of Respiratory Protective Masks

    SBC: nanoGriptech, Inc.            Topic: CBD09102

    NanoGriptech LLC proposes to develop repeatable skin adhesives using technology inspired by the feet of geckos and insects. These adhesives will be integrated into full facemask respirators to reduce or replace head harness straps, which are currently used to hold the facemasks in place. Expected benefits are improved fit, resistance to shifting, improved sealing, and reduced discomfort and tiss ...

  7. Distributed Thermal Imaging Spectrometer for Force Protection

    SBC: MESH, INC.            Topic: CBD09108

    This proposal describes how a very low cost hyperspectral imager can be built. The key to the low cost is the use of a commercially available thermal camera based on uncooled microbolometer as the detecting element. An interferometer is placed in front of the camera to produce the spectrum. Each frame of the camera captures one point of the interferogram, producing a hyperspectral image at 4cm- ...

  8. CBRN Sensor and Sensor Netting Algorithms

    SBC: MESH, INC.            Topic: CBD09110

    Being proposed is a way to integrate the inputs from multiple sensors and different types of sensors to produce a map of the chemical threat. This technique weights every input based on type of sensor, minimum detectable level, health and status of each instrument, and time and position errors. The Sensor Netting Algorithm (SNA) will be based on tomography with weighting factors. The output will ...
