  1. Data Fusion Approach for the Effective Inspection of Prestressed Concrete

    SBC: FDH Engineering Inc.            Topic: 141FH1

    While many inspection technologies are available to find corrosion in steel tendons of prestressed concrete, no single technology has shown consistent results over the wide range of prestressed structures and inspection settings that are required from the bridge infrastructure market. However, a new NDE method – Nonlinear Impact Resonance Spectroscopy (NIRS) – shows promise in identifying corr ...

  2. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: MERCURY DATA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 121FT1

    We propose to develop an advanced navigation solution for public transportation passengers that will guide them from their origin to single or multiple destination points and across multiple modes of transportation. Passengers will simply need to enter their destination (and optionally a starting point) and the system will select optimal and alternative routes. The navigation software will run on ...

  3. 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. DEVELOPMENT OF A DATABASE ON LUGGAGE MATERIALS TO FACILITATE DETECTION OF EXPLOSIVES

    SBC: Ec/r Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A DATABASE OF MATERIALS COMMONLY FOUND IN LUGGAGE. THIS WOULD INCLUDE DATA ON WHAT TYPES OF ARTICLES ARE TYPICALLY FOUND IN LUGGAGE AND DATA ON THE ELEMENTAL COMPOSITION AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THESE ARTICLES. THE DATABASE WOULD BE USED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NON-INTRUSIVE LUGGAGE ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES AND, ALSO, IN THEIR SUBSEQUENT APPLICATION IN ...

  9. 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 ...
