  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  2. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 912RN

    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  3. Device and Strategy for Shock Wave Mitigation

    SBC: LARRY HILL CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: 091FH1

    Substantial simulation work has been done showing that traffic shock-waves can be reduced or eliminated through "cooperative adaptive cruise control" and "communicating cruise control" where following vehicles are warned that leading vehicles are slowing in time to react. To be effective, however, such devices must be installed and operate in the majority of vehicles in the queue. Even if mandat ...

  4. Digital Imaging of Pipeline Mechanical Damage and Residual Stress

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined. The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining life. Empirical relationships between damage features and burst pressure have been developed and adopted i ...

  5. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    Automated vehicle counting technology has been in use for many years, but developments in automated pedestrian counting technology have been limited. Pedestrians are more difficult to detect, track and count, than motor vehicles because their paths are much less constrained. In Phae I, we propose to develop a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LE ...

  6. FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL.

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL. MOST DIESEL OPERATORS NOW CONSIDER PERIODIC OIL ANALYSES AS THEIR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN MAINTAINING EQUIPMENT; THIS METHOD IS BOTH EXPENSIVE AND OFTEN INCONVIENT. THIS RESEARCH EXPLORES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION OF ...
