  1. Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    The United States has a vast network of pipelines used for fuel transport. This infrastructure, installed in 1950–1970, is one of the largest in the world. Yet poor/missing records of the materials used, combined with the overall age and associated environmental degradation effects, often results in unsafe operation. Current non-destructive inspection techniques are only capable of detecting mat ...

  2. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  3. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  4. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  5. Miniature, Efficient, Low-Vibration Cryocooler for Gamma Ray Detectors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: HSB051003

    Hand-held gamma ray spectrometers are a vital tool for detecting and identifying nuclear materials to counter the threat of radiological and nuclear terrorism. The HPGe crystals in these detectors must operate at cryogenic temperatures to achieve good energy resolution. We propose to develop an innovative, miniature cryogenic cooling system that will be ideal for hand-held detectors. High efficien ...

  6. Laser-Based Acoustic Emission Detection for Building Stability Assessment

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: HSB052005

    A laser-based acoustic emission (AE) detection device is proposed for structural stability assessment of buildings in order to provide warning of structural instability or pending collapse. It will help to reduce injuries and fatalities during emergency mitigation operations. This new device will take advantage of innovations in laser ultrasonics, artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced acoustic ...

  7. Cost-Saving Enhancements to the Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN)

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: HSB051004

    A low cost Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN) is now being developed under an ONR Phase 2 SBIR and as a joint project between the USA and Singapore. The SDSN is a network of inexpensive sonar nodes where narrow sonar beams are formed using airbacked parabolic reflectors. The feasibility of the system has been proven through trials conducted in Singapore harbor and full development is well unde ...

  8. NEW TRANSIT MARKETS FOR COMPETITIVE PROCUREMENT

    SBC: Dean P Bell & Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN UNPRECEDENTED PUBLIC SECTOR/PRIVATE SECTOR BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP AMONG PRIVATE BUS OPERATORS, VISITOR AND CONVENTION BUREAUS (C&VB) AND PUBLIC TRANSIT AGENCIES TO MEET THE GROWING TRANSPORTATION NEEDS OF THE MEETING MARKET (E.G., CONVENTIONS AND CORPORATE MEETINGS). THIS WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A FIXED-ROUTE SHUTTLE SERVICE BETWEEN HOTELS AND CONVENTION ...
