  1. A Miniatruized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year. To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered. As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to develop an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use. The technical innovation will be to develop a reversible ...

  2. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    The NOAA strategic vision is to help realized ¿an informed society that uses a comprehensive understanding of the role of the oceans, coasts, and atmosphere in the global ecosystem to make the best social and economic decisions.¿ Never is this vision more applicable as it is to tropical cyclones (TCs). These systems pose one of the largest natural threats to our society and economy. The NO ...

  3. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known. Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment or in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use. The Tech ...

  4. Multi-Point Optical Sensor-Based Roof Measurement System for Use in Dynamic Rollover Testing

    SBC: Boxboro Systems LLC            Topic: 07NH2

    An optical, non-contact roof deformation monitoring system will be designed based on an existing multi-point, non-contact, multi-axis optical sensor-based measurement system that is currently used to measure chest deflection in crash-test dummies. The research involves determining suitable components to be used in the optical path, from high-power LED arrays through lenses and optical sensors. T ...

  5. A New Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Motorcycle Detection and Classification

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Detection, classification, and characterization are the key to enhancing motorcycle safety, operations and travel estimation. Motorcycle fatalities are currently estimated at 30 times those of auto fatalities per Vehicle Mile Traveled (VMT). Although it has been an active research area for many years, motorcycle detection and classification still remains as a challenging task. The goal of Phase I ...

  6. New In-field Composite Repair Techniques for Transmission or Distribution Pipelines

    SBC: Odyssian Technology, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Composite in-field pipeline repair technology is proposed that builds upon recent advances in composite repair techniques. Alternative composite materials and processes are proposed that will substantially ease in-field repair and reduce the time personnel are exposed to potentially adverse environmental conditions. Also proposed is a sensor leak detection system that can be optionally installed ...

  7. High Speed Photolytic Cleaning of Third Rail Insulator Cleaning

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: 07FT4

    This project addresses the specific need for an improved method for cleaning insulators that electrically isolate the third rail. Current methods are labor intensive and expensive, but the insulators should be cleaned regularly to avoid even greater expense. This project is to adapt an innovative photolytic paint stripper to cleaning insulators for the third rail. The overall objective is to de ...

  8. Quick-release Emergency Egress Panel on Cab Car End Doors

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 07FR2

    The FRA has identified cab car end door kick panels as possible emergency egress panels. They could be used in circumstances where the convential emergency exits are unusable. The industry has operational and maintenance concerns. The objectives of this SBIR are to define the requirements for end door emergency egress panels and identify alternative design approaches and assess their effectiven ...

  9. Wireless Brake Shoe Force Measurement System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 04FR1

    Railroad freight car safety and maintenance cost is directly related to knowledge of the actual braking force provided by a brake shoe. If the brake force is too low, safety is at risk. If the brake shoe is replaced before the end of it's lifetime to ensure safety, maintenance and thus operating costs are increased. Currently there is no system in place to monitor brake shoe force during train ...

  10. Hearing Companion: Handheld Portable Sound Identification and Critical Alerting Functionality for People Who Are Deaf or Have Hearing Loss

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Based on previous research, this project develops and demonstrates the HearingCompanionwhich: (1) automatically recognizes specific sounds in the environment on a pocket-sized device; and(2) alerts the user on their mobile device via vibration, images, and captions that identify these recognizedsounds. This efficient, wearable system utilizes existing and developing technology, improvingthe abilit ...
