  1. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheic Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    Accurate, high resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and ocean surface wind fields within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase II effort will build on the Phase I project successes to realize an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar (AWRAP) capable of providing these winds with up to 15-meter vertical re ...

  2. Buoy Atmospheric Precipitation Sampler

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 8212

    Reliable automated collection and measurement of precipitation from moored buoys has been an elusive goal. Operation of open aperture collectors on ocean platforms is problematic, requiring constant human attention and intervention to prevent sea spray from contaminating the collected samples, and for dealing with freezing conditions in colder climates. Approaches are described that have the pot ...

  4. Wireless Brake Shoe Force Measurement System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    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 ...

  5. A New Robust Multiple Pedestrians Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 04FH3

    In Phase I, we have developed new pedestrian detection and tracking techniques based on stereo images. Our system comprises a number of key modules including (1) disparity layered thresholding method that can be used to extract the potential pedestrian(s) layer by layer; (2) pedestrian detectiona and discrimination using 3D convex feature that can be used to detect the pedestrian in each disparity ...

  6. Pilot for Rail Passenger Cab Cars

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    TIAX LLC proposes a Phase I SBIR project that will result in a preliminary conceptual design for rail passenger cab car pilots that will reduce the risk for derailment following a grade crossing collision with an automobile. Several tasks are proposed, including: a review of existing pilot designs by contacting car builders and operators; a review of grade crossing accidents; the development of ...

  7. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...
