  1. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  2. Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 122FH4

    Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) has been employed as a major technology to collect heavy vehicles’ data on the freeways. Because WIM is one of the most costly and sophisticated data collection system, how to effectively utilize the valuable WIM data, monitor WIM stations' performance, and identify out of calibration stations are especially important. In this project, we propose an innovative and yet pract ...

  3. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

    The Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train. The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelenght high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature from these ...

  4. Low-Cost, Full-Field, Surface Profiling Tool for Mechanical Damage Evaluation

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent source of leaks and ruptures in pipelines. The most common type of mechanical damage is dents, sometimes associated with secondary features such as gouges, external corrosion, or cracks. Currently used techniques for assessing dents are not accurate enough for reliable determination of fitness for service. In this p ...

  5. Mobile VHF Lightning Mapping System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 942RDW

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop a mobile VHF-based sensor suite for detecting and mapping lightning flashes. The proposes Lightning Mapping Unmanned Sensor (LUTMUS)™ System will meet small unmanned aerial system (UAS) cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWAP) constraints and should be capable of being placed on virtually any small UAS. The most critical component of the LITMUS syst ...

  6. Automated Image Analysis for Fisheries Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 921F

    We propose to develop software that is capable of automatically classifying and measuring the length of fish observed in video. We will focus initially on underwater video, but much of the software will also be applicable to fish onboard commercial fishing vessels as well. Our approach is to first segment fish based on their motion in the water. For this purpose, we will make use of existing au ...

  7. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 913N

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels, and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA in its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate an advanced algorithm to derive ba ...

  8. SMOKE EMITTING INTERIOR MATERIALS FOR TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

    SBC: Chem-tronics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP RIGID SYNTOCTIC POLYIMIDE FOAM PANELS POSSESSING FLAME RESISTANCE, NO-SMOKE EMISSION AND LOW THERMAL CONDUCTANCE FOR REPLACING INTERIOR MATERIALS OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES NOW DESIGNATED AS POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS. AT LEAST FOUR CANDIDATE MATERIALS WILL BE PREPARED AND TESTED TO SELECT THE MOST PROMISING CANDIDATE FOR SCALE-UP IN A PHASE II PROGRAM.
