  1. Innovative technologies for nondestructive determination of fracture toughness for pipeline steels in transportation infastructure

    SBC: Innerspec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    In the inspection and quality assurance framework, coercimetry refers to non-destructive testing of mechanical properties based on measurements of the magnetic characteristics of a metal. This technology relies on the continuous and noticeable (100-400%) increase in the magnitude of the coercivity, while the metal passes from as-delivered to its final state. As both magnetic and mechanical propert ...

  3. Identifying Valuable Second Lives for Retired-Lithium-Ion Batteries in Transportation Systems

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 171OS1

    The identification of high-value and high-impact secondary applications for retired lithium-ion batteries is critical as the number of electric vehicles on the road continues to increase. During the Phase I DOT SBIR program NanoSonic will evaluate second-use application concepts for retired vehicular lithium-ion batteries in economically valuable, second-use sectors of transportation. We are partn ...

  5. Train Reporting And Inspection INdex (TRAIN)

    SBC: Benten Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 151FR5

    Benten Technologies proposes to develop a back-end schema-less, open source, cloud-based database with front-end browser-based, cross-platform JavaScript model library to support locomotive inspection data collection. TRAIN will allow for the logging of inspection data for all types of locomotives including steam, diesel, diesel-electric, and electric locomotives by railroad and locomotive manufac ...

  6. Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 151FR9

    To address FRA’s requirements of measuring rail vehicle suspension displacement and integrating this into existing accelerometer-based ride quality systems, dFuzion proposes the development of a comprehensive Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS). RPAS will leverage the investment and research already made by FRA in its sponsored portable ride quality meter. By extending the ride quality dat ...

  9. ELECTRONIC BOMB FUZE DETECTION

    SBC: Household Data Services            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL METHODS OF RAPIDLY SCREENING AIRLINE PASSENGERS AND BAGGAGE FOR EXPLOSIVE DEVICES ARE PROPOSED. TWO OF THESE METHODS USE NONLINEAR DEVICE DETECTION (NLDD) TO DETERMINE THE PRESENCE OF ACTIVE OR PASSIVE SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES WHICH MAY BE PART OF AN ELECTRONIC BOMB FUZE. ANOTHER TWO DETECT THE PRESENCE OF RUNNING OSCILLATORS WHICH ARE LIKELY SUBSYSTEMS OF A FUZING DEVICE.
