  1. Automated Visual Anthropometry for Three-dimensional Assessment of Respirators (AVATAR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    Military respirator masks provide the Warfighter with life critical protection against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN)threats. To ensure the safety, comfort, and effectiveness of the American Warfighter, it is essential that every Warfighter be assigned arespirator that is properly sized and fitted. However, current methods for sizing and fitting respirators depend on manual ...

  2. Dual Mode T-DHM/IR Spectral Sensor for Time-resolved Pathogen Imaging

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171003

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a dual-mode, nanometer-scale, 3D optical imaging system that combines tomographic digitalholographic microscopy (T-DHM) with infrared (IR) absorption spectroscopy. The proposed sensor will be capable of generating high data rate,sub-wavelength axial/lateral resolution, 3D structural images with simultaneous and complementary functional information o ...

  3. Smartphone Application for Mask Sizing and Projecting Quantitative Fit

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    Identifying the correct size of a full facepiece respirator for an individual requires a significant degree of skill. Furthermore, the fit assessment procedure is time consuming due to the series of tasks required to calculate the fit factor, a measure of the quality of fit. The Chemical and Biological Defense (CBD) program needs a quicker, less manually intensive, and more reliable method to sele ...

  4. Crowding Information Collection and Dissemination System

    SBC: Arcon Corporation            Topic: 171FT1

    Train car crowding is a key issue resulting in passenger dissatisfaction and degraded transit service. One reason for train car crowding is an uneven distribution of passengers among the train cars which results in overcrowding of certain cars while leaving other cars sparsely occupied. If passengers waiting at a station are informed about the expected crowding levels in the arriving train, they c ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 171NH1

    Driving under the influence of marijuana, the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States is reported to double the risk of crash involvement. As marijuana decriminalization and legalization measures continue to gain acceptance, the potential number of drivers using marijuana could rise dramatically, necessitating new ways for law enforcement to combat the pursuant increase in drug relate ...

  8. A Robust Railway Track Crack Detection System Using Thermal Signatures

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 171FR2

    In Phase I, Migma Systems propose to develop a robust system for detection of railway track surface cracks. Automated railway inspection is critical for ensuring the safety of public transportation. Rails often break under trains and broken tracks can lead to train derailment. In Phase I, we will make a prototype sensor with low power microprocessor, IR camera, GPS and temperature/humidity sensor ...

  9. Driver breath measurement of marijuana intoxication by infrared spectroscopy

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: 171NH1

    The intoxicating effects of marijuana are of public safety concern. With the expected increase in the use of this substance it is important to provide law-enforcement officials with a simple driver test for its detection. Because of the presence of the intoxication agent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) vapor in the exhaled breath of marijuana users, it is possible to confirm marijuana intoxication via ...

  10. Multimodal Alerting Interface with Networked Short-range Transmissions (MAIN-ST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 161FH2

    The connected vehicles (CV) program is a DOT initiative that uses dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) to enable safer and greener surface transportation. Ongoing efforts exist to bring motor vehicles and infrastructure onto CV networks, but bicycles have been largely overlooked. Consequently, a significant need exists to bring cyclists onto these networks so other connected entities can be ...
