  1. A Low Cost Sensor for Mid-Chord Offset Measurements

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 141FR1

    This Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing low cost and high accuracy local position sensors and transmitters to autonomously estimate Mid-chord offset in rails. The two innovative parts of the proposed system are (1) a set of miniature and highly accurate local position sensors and transmitters for estimating the absolute positions of the mid point and end points of a 62 ...

  2. Coordinated Data and Scoring for Usage Based Insurance

    SBC: VEHICLE DATA SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: 141FH2

    This SBIR phase I project will extend an existing collaboration with multiple insurance companies to identify a common prototype data set and risk scoring algorithm that are independent of the devices deployed for data collection. Collection devices include some commonly used by various telematics service providers, as well as mobile devices. Parameters will include at a minimum deceleration and ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Traffic Surveillance System using Heterogeneous Sensor Technologies for National Park Service

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 141FH5

    Continued population growth and expanded commercial development have already push the daily traffic on National Park Service(NPS) Parkways exceeds design capacity especially around the urban area. The Parkways around urban areas usually serve as commuting routes for commuters and as scenic routes for visitors. Heavy traffic in rush hours, high travel speeds during non-peak periods, and condition o ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Accurate Identification of Explosives in Baggage

    SBC: Zaptron Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Aluminum-Beryllium alloys (A1BeMet) are binary alloys that combine the high modulus and low density characteristics of beryllium with the fabrication and mechanical property behavior of aluminum. These characteristics are extremely desirable for advanced satellite and space applications. Cost($2000/lb) of the alloys has been the main drawback to their use. By combining thin A1BeMet ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
