  2. Stress and Geometry Imaging from Outside the Pipeline

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 111PH1

    There is a well defined, yet unfulfilled need for a convenient (non-contact, light weight) and rapid imaging tool for multi-directional, thru-wall stresses (both applied and residual) from the outside of a pipeline. Quantitative stress imaging is needed at mechanical damage and corrosion sites, as well as at other critical locations (dents, bends, etc.). JENTEK is uniquely positioned to deliver ...

  3. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase I, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner were selected for use. We have demonstrated that our pedestrian counting system can count multiple pedestrians walking in a large group, maintain individual tracks even when some pedestrians walk in unpredictable patterns or leave the crosswalk prematur ...

  4. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    PHASE II TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE The major objective of this Phase II proposal is to establish open source traffic simulation model and software, and to develop application programming interfaces to accommodate future traffic research needs. Objectives will be accomplished by building and demonstrating FOMM, an open source traffic simulation model and software. Furthermore, to accommodate future resea ...

  5. Silver Ion Formulations for the Control of Bacterial Plant Pathogens and to Reduce Bactericide Resistance and Health Risks

    SBC: AGION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 82

    While bacteria cause fewer plant diseases than fungi and viruses, they do cause serious economic damages to both US and worldwide agriculture. Citrus canker caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis has resulted in the destruction of over 20 million trees in Florida, while fire blight caused by Erwinia amylovora costs exceed $100 million per year in the United States alone, and recent epidemics have cost o ...

  6. Biobased and Biodegradable Impact Modifier for Completely Renewable Bioplastic

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: 88

    The now rapidly developing field of plastic materials based on renewable resources (bioplastics) provides tremendous opportunities to sustain and enhance the domestic plastics industries, the fourth largest manufacturing sector of the American economy. In addition, bioplastic materials are derived from agricultural materials and will help reduce the U.S. dependence on foreign oil Growth in the use ...

  7. Robust Airborne Wind Turbine Shroud for Production of Low Cost Renewable Energy

    SBC: Altaeros Energies, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Hundreds of existing wind power projects have transformed communities by creating jobs, improving economic development, and reducing environmental pollution. However, 85 percent of rural communities cannot utilize wind power today due to community concerns or poor wind resources at ground level that make projects uneconomical. Altaeros Energies is developing an airborne wind turbine that adapts pr ...

  8. Use of Direct Filtration on the Influent to Floating Bead Filters and Treatment of Waste Discharge with Coagulation Aids for Suspended Solid

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: 87

    As fish species with greater sensitivity to water quality are cultured in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), it becomes vital to improve fine solids capture. Additionally, phosphorous levels in the discharge from RAS are often high (per EPA guidelines and regulations) and can lead to eutrophication of receiving waters. This project has the potential to improve PBF performance in both respect ...

  9. Development of a safe and efficacious vaccine for Rift Valley fever virus

    SBC: BIOPROTECTION SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: 83

    This application addresses the USDA NIFA "Global Food Security and Hunger" primary societal challenge area by developing a countermeasure against a potential agricultural disease threat - Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV). RVFV is an arthropod-borne pathogen that often results in severe morbidity and mortality in both humans and livestock. RVF manifests itself in the vast majority of indivi ...
