  1. Active Seat Belt Tensioning (AST

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In line with the NHTSA¿s desire to encourage the development of restorable vehicle occupant safety systems here in the U.S., Mide is proposing to develop a active seat belt tensioning (AST) device that can control and tailor the rate at which the belt pre-stiffens during a crash, depending on the expected severity of the crash. To do this Mide will develop and integrated system that will take it ...

  2. Piezo Structural Acoustic Pipeline Leak Detection System

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mide is proposing an innovative method for detecting leaks in pipelines. In Phase I Mide will demonstrate that piezoelectric materials can be used to sense leaks, that a low power event recorder can be used to store detected leaks and that an innovative low-power/self powered acoustic data transmission monitor system can be used to report leaks and their location. Monitor data will be transmitte ...

  3. Development of a Portable Human Error Incident Investigation Tool for the Railroad Industry

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller proposes to develop a human-centered portable human error investigation tool to aid railroad investigators in systematically identifying those factors that likely contributed to a railroad incident, and formulating appropriate corrective actions. This tool will be designed as a ¿co-pilot¿ to the investigator to ensure a meaningful and successful human error investigation. Fos ...

  4. Fiber Bragg Grating Sensor to Measure Relative Humidity in Concrete

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller, Inc. proposes to develop a system for monitoring the internal relative humidity (RH) in concrete using an innovative optical fiber strain sensor. Capable of measurement from 70 to 100% RH, with precision of ? 1%, our approach builds on the technology already developed for strain sensors and fiber optic read-out systems. Since fiber optic sensors can be frequency multiplexed, appro ...

  5. Innovative Emergency Egress Windows for Rail Passenger Cars

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This document is a SBIR Phase II proposal regarding an emergency egress window for rail passenger cars. The technical approach presented here is a result of a successful demonstration of an emergency egress window concept during the previous Phase I program. Currently available egress windows suffer from two basic problems: All require that a large amount of gasket material be removed by passen ...

  7. Infrasonic Frequency Seismic Sensor System for Pipeline Integrity Management

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences, Inc. in cooperation with the NYSEARCH committee of the North East Gas Association proposes to develop an infrasonic gas pipeline evaluation network that uses low frequency seismic/acoustic (0.1 to 100 Hz) sensor technology to proactively detect and warn of unauthorized activity near underground gas pipelines before damage occurs, thereby preventing third party damage and subsequ ...

  8. Spawning and Hatchery Technology to Improve Hybrid Catfish Production

    SBC: Alabama Catfish Inc. d/b/a Harvest Select Farm            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Catfish imports are coming from third world nations capable of producing catfish and selling lower prices than American counterparts. Therefore, methods that improve efficiency and reduce the cost of producing catfish would be a tremendous asset to the industry. The hybrid catfish between channel catfish female and blue catfish males has been shown to have many superior char ...

  10. Reproductive Confinement of Channel Catfish with Transgenic Sterilization

    SBC: Aqua Bounty Technologies            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Transgenic, domestic, interspecific hybrid and exotic fish all have great potential for benefiting both aquaculture and recreational fishing. Many of these fish, especially transgenics, are not used because of ecological concerns. The ultimate solution to these biodiversity, genetic biodiversity and environmental risk issues for application of these fish is transgenic steril ...
