  1. A Compact, Low-Cost Signaling System for Persons in Distress

    SBC: AFAB Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The design of LADAR systems varies widely with application and platform requiring custom designs which increase cost and complexity and limit the commercial applicability. To address this issue, CTI proposes a unique, modular optical waveguide amplifier (WGA) based transmitter which can be adapted to coherent and direct detection transceivers over a wide range of repetition rates an ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Creating a Global Infrastructure for Virtual Aids to Navigation (V-ATON)

    SBC: WisdomTools Enterprises Inc            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Today's dense and rapidly evolving threat environments have increased the requirements that are being placed on tools necessary for characterizing urban electromagnetic (EM) environments. Although effective tools for urban EM environment characterization exist for simple 2-D models, the more challenging problem of characterizing the EM environment of a large densely populated region ...

  4. Robust Intelligent Monitoring of Varied Approach Lighting Subsystem


    Not Available The objective of this SBIR effort is to develop and demonstrate an innovative digital beamforming antenna array suitable for installation on a space vehicle. GPS can provide a cost effective method of tracking space vehicles during launch and orbit entry. However, an antenna is needed that can track the GPS satellites while the space vehicle is spinning to leverage this advantage. N ...

  5. Small Scale Diesel Generator for Railway Applications


    Autonomous inspection systems are necessary to increase awareness of track safety and maintenance issues. However, electrical power for these systems is not available under freight railway vehicles. Mainstream Engineering (MEC) proposes development of a small-scale diesel generator with an integrated starter-alternator (ISA) and automated battery charging circuit for this application. The proposed ...
