  1. FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL.

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL. MOST DIESEL OPERATORS NOW CONSIDER PERIODIC OIL ANALYSES AS THEIR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN MAINTAINING EQUIPMENT; THIS METHOD IS BOTH EXPENSIVE AND OFTEN INCONVIENT. THIS RESEARCH EXPLORES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION OF ...

  2. Device and Strategy for Shock Wave Mitigation

    SBC: LARRY HILL CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: 091FH1

    Substantial simulation work has been done showing that traffic shock-waves can be reduced or eliminated through "cooperative adaptive cruise control" and "communicating cruise control" where following vehicles are warned that leading vehicles are slowing in time to react. To be effective, however, such devices must be installed and operate in the majority of vehicles in the queue. Even if mandat ...

  3. Digital Imaging of Pipeline Mechanical Damage and Residual Stress

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined. The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining life. Empirical relationships between damage features and burst pressure have been developed and adopted i ...

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

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    Automated vehicle counting technology has been in use for many years, but developments in automated pedestrian counting technology have been limited. Pedestrians are more difficult to detect, track and count, than motor vehicles because their paths are much less constrained. In Phae I, we propose to develop a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LE ...

  6. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 912RN

    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  7. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  8. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  9. Structured Waveform, Magnetic Field (SWMF) PIG Development for Cracks and Corrosion

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 132PH1

    Multiple major pipeline failures have been caused by seam weld defects not detected by available ILI technology [August 16, 2013 WSJ]. Phase I will demonstrate a game changing capability to deliver internal and external corrosion mapping and seam weld crack detection in a low-cost tool that “encourages more repetitive ILI runs and wider use.” JENTEK’s new through wall imaging method called S ...

  10. Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement Systems (McROMS)

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: 141FR1

    What is needed is a lightweight system that can be deployed and used by one person that will measure and compile the track geometry data and compute the MCO for a rail section in real time without reliance on any external reference. Such a device, the Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement System (McROMS) is the subject of this proposal. But MCO is not the only rail geometry data of interest. If this s ...
