  1. US FLAG COASTAL RO/RO SHIPS; APPLICATION OF CASSETTE TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Advanced Marine Enterprises,            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL EVALUATE THE RANGE OF SHIP SIZES AND POWER LEVELS (SPEEDS) TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM SHIP CHARACTERISTICS FOR OPERATING U.S. FLAG RO/RO SHIPS IN U.S. COASTAL SERVICE. RO/RO CARGO HANDLING TECHNIQUES PREVALENT IN EUROPE AND SCANDINAVIA WILL BE INCORPORATED AS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE SERIES OF SHIPS INVESTIGATED. THESE TECHNIQUES INVOLVE THE USE OF CASSETTES TO HANDLE CONTAINERS ...

  3. Non-contact Track Gage Measurement System (NC-TGMS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 081FR4

    One of the causes of derailments occurs when the track gage is no longer compliant with the FRA track safety standards for gage measurments. Ensuring track gage is in compliance with the FRA track safety standards is therefore of paramount importance to the FRA. Currently, the FRA wishes to develop a non-contact track gage measurement system that overcomes the limitations of current systems (unr ...

  4. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings. This system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system. The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera. An off-the-she ...

  5. Roadway Waste Heat Electricity Production Using Impoved Roadway Paving Technologies

    SBC: Planphoria LLC            Topic: 091FH5

    Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use. Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly differ from the requirements of other roadways, we will determine the feasibility of this concept by leading ...

  7. ACOUSTIC DETECTION OF AXLES

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING ACOUSTIC RADIATION FROM VEHICLE TIRES TO PROVIDE A LOW COST, EASY TO DEPLOY, UNOBTRUSIVE, RELAIBLE REPLACEMENT FOR THE CURRENT METHOD OF COLLECTING VEHICLE AXLE PASSAGE DATA. THE PROPOSED METHOD WILL CROSS-CORRELATE THE TIRE NOISE RECEIVED AT SPATIALLY SEPARATED MICROPHONES TO LOCATE AXLE CROSSINGS. THE PROCESSING ...

  8. LASER BASED REAL-TIME POSITIONING SYSTEM

    SBC: Spatial Positioning Systems            Topic: N/A

    SPATIAL POSITIONING SYSTEMS INC. (SPSI) PROPOSES TO RESEARCH AND DEVELOP A SELF-CALIBRATING THREE DIMENSIONAL LASER-BASED POSITIONING SYSTEM FOR INTEGRATED USE IN A RIVER BOTTOM MAPPING SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE REAL-TIME 3-D POSITIONING OF A BOAT TO AN ACCURACY OF 100 MM IN THE VERTICAL AND 1 M IN THE HORIZONTAL. THE UPDATE RATE IS EXPECTED TO BE 50HZ AND THE RANGE 300 ME ...
