  2. Development of an in situ Thermal Extraction Detection System (TEDS) for Rapid, Accurate, Quantitative Analysis of Environmental Pollutants in the Subsurface

    SBC: Ion Signature Technology, Inc.            Topic: 09NCERP1

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its publication Technology News and Trends in 2009 featured the Navy's work that saved 6 years and $3 million delineating chlorinated solvent plumes in soil and groundwater. The Navy used EPA's TRIAD process, which incorporates systematic planning, field analytics, and dynamic work strategies, during its hazardous waste site investigation. A direct ...

  3. Development of an in situ Thermal Extraction Detection System (TEDS) for Rapid, Accurate, Quantitative Analysis of Environmental Pollutants in the Subsurface

    SBC: Ion Signature Technology, Inc.            Topic: 08NCERH1

    Ion Signature Technology, Inc. (IST) will develop and market a collection and analysis system that will retrieve soil-bound pollutants as well as soluble and non-soluble contaminants from groundwater as the probe is pushed by cone penetrometry of Geoprobe into the subsurface. The goal of this project is to detect in real-time the wide range of compounds listed in EPA Method 8260 (VOCs) and 8270 ( ...

  4. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  5. SOCOM SOF Combatant Motion Recording and Biofeedback System

    SBC: MEMSense, LLC            Topic: SOCOM02007

    The United States Special Operations Command’s Special Boat Teams are routinely exposed to an environment prone to injury and the long-term effects of repetitive impact stress. The primary cause for injury and long-term degenerative musculoskeletal effects is the repetitive impacts incurred as the MK V and NSW RIB vessels impact the ocean’s surface. The goal of SOCOM02-007 Phase II research is ...

  7. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...

  9. OCEAN WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER

    SBC: Ocean Wave Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR AIDS TO NAVIGATION (ATON) ARE ESSENTIAL SIGNPOSTS FOR SAFE PASSAGE ALONG COASTAL AND OFFSHORE SEAWAYS. PRESENTLY, THEIR SIGNALS ARE POWERED BY ON-SITE ENGINE GENERATORS REQUIRING CONSIDERABLE AND COSTLY MAINTENANCE. ATON AUTONOMY WILL BE GREATLY INCREASED WITH DEEP DISCHARGE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY PROVIDING THAT ON-SITE CHARGING SOURCES ARE USED. AMONG NATURALLY AVAILABLE SOURCES, THE UNCEASING ...

  10. An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

    SBC: Polymer Bridge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed in 1 eight-hour day; and 4) be cost-competitive on an installed cost basis. This bridge will be buil ...
