  1. Wireless Compatible Digital Train Line (WiDTL) for Passenger Type Vehicles in a Train Consist

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR1

    This project seeks to define the performance requirements for a wireless Digital Train Line (WiDTL) through definition of functionality and performance expected, and translating these into network equipment specifications and architecture that wireless network equipment manufacturers can build towards. The effort will include an in-depth review of wireless technology as it applies to sensitive and ...

  2. Next Generation Freight Truck for Autorack Cars

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 151FR3

    Autorack cars transport one of the most valuable commodities – fully assembled Automobiles. Due to the longer and higher profile of an Autorack and the fact that heavy automobiles are loaded on to high deck levels, freight trucks with improved track-to-vehicle dynamics as well as higher speed capabilities are desired in anticipation of higher speed passenger service and shared corridors. Unique ...

  3. Unipolar nBn HgCdTe on Silicon for High Performance, Low Cost NIR/SWIR Imagers

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: SOCOM12002

    We propose the development of a near infrared/shortwave infrared (NIR/SWIR) sensor based on mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) in an n-type/barrier/n-type (nBn) architecture, designed for room-temperature operation in the 0.7 to 2.8µm NIR/SWIR spectral range. The sensor will compete as a low cost/high performance alternative to near infrared indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs)-based cameras by prov ...

  4. Electronically Controlled Pneumatic Brake System Emulator Development

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 121FR2

    Migration of the vehicle fleet from the current, pneumatic-only, automatic air brake (AAB) system to ECP presents a significant challenge due to the systems’ inherent operational incompatibility. This project will investigate the feasibility of devices that can help to ease this transition by allowing ECP equipped cars to operate in a conventionally braked train, as well as devices to permit con ...

  5. Stealth Conformant Coatings for Diver Dry Suits

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: SOCOM10001

    American Energy Technologies Co., a woman-owned small business concern of Illinois, will partner with Georgia Institute of Technology of Atlanta, GA and Clemson University of South Carolina in order to develop and qualify a matrix of conformant clad coatings for outer garments of rubberized dry suits used by free swimming Special Operations Forces Divers. The principle constituents of these exteri ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  8. Alternative Power Sources

    SBC: SmartSpark            Topic: SOCOM04008

    SmartSpark Energy Systems proposes a battery-free power supply for unattended field use that combines advanced power electronics with state-of-the-art photovoltaics and high-density double-layer capacitors. The technical challenges are to develop and apply sophisticated power electronics for optimal energy management of a photovoltaic source, to store the energy efficiently in a reversible proces ...

  10. COUNTS OF PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC TO JUSTIFY SIGNALS, SIDEWALKS AND OTHER FACILITIES IN OUTSIDE ENVIRONMENT ARE DONE MANUALLY.

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    COUNTS OF PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC TO JUSTIFY SIGNALS, SIDEWALKS AND OTHER FACILITIES IN OUTSIDE ENVIRONMENT ARE DONE MANUALLY. COST OF TAKING THIS DATA WOULD BE REDUCED IF A RELIABLE, AUTOMATIC PEDESTRIAN DETECTION DEVICE WERE AVAILA-BLE. THE DEVICE MUST BE RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE, DURABLE, PORTABLE AND ADAPTABLE TO OUTSIDE ENVIRONMENTS. A LINEAR PESTRAIN SENSOR ARRAY (LPSA) IS PROPOSED FOR PHASE I RESE ...
