  1. Anonymous Traffic Probes for Travel Time and O-D using Bluetooth IDs

    SBC: TRAFFAX INC.            Topic: 082FH2

    Traffax Inc. proposes a system based on Bluetooth point-to-point communications to anonymous detect vehicles, establish travel times, and develop accurate Origin & Destination (O-D) matrices.  Preliminary research performed at the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Transportation Technology, Indiane Department of Transportation, and Purdue University identified the use of consumer ...

  2. A novel detection and warning system to mitigate dilemma zone (DZ) issues

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 082FH1

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative and inexpensive solutions using In-roadway detectors and embedded pavement flashing light warning system to solve the dilemma zone (DZ) problem.  Detection is performed by a pair of inductive loops in each travel lane, 800 to 1200 ft from intersection.   The detection system includes prediction of vehicle travel time to the in ...

  3. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

    The ability to monitor the condition of a bridge structure to detect damage or changes in condition at early stages is of significant interest to many bridge owners.  Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques.  In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a bridge structural health monit ...

  4. Technology Transfer of Scanning Magnetic Field Imaging

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    High resolution magnetic mapping is a technique that has shown great value in the forensic evaluation of magnetic audio recording tapes. The use of single element raster scan systems has shown that the technique has promise in diagnosing many other systems where internal currents or magnetized inclusions generate external measurable fields. NIST has developed a 256 channel MR array sensor that ha ...

  5. First Steps in Transferring the Policy Machine Technology: Policy Machine Architecture and Functional Specification (PMAFS)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IAI proposes to first develop the functional specification and architecture for the Policy Machine that can be deployed on a local machine as well as a networked platform such as LAN, web services, clouds etc. The policy machine at its core is a meta-data (attribute) based access control engine which utilized policy-based rules to allow or dis-allow use of resources. The attributes may belong to e ...

  6. Multi-posed Virtual Family Models

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A simulation platform to develop multi-posed models for micro-Doppler sensing is proposed. CAD model based human subject models, and hardware accelerated bio-electromagnetic modeling will be developed to understand EM interaction with human subject models. Since each organ is defined via a set of vertex coordinates, various morphing algorithm can be implemented. Consequently, the proposed models ( ...

  7. A Toolkit for Scalable and Automatic Security Analysis Using Security Metrics

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our society has become increasingly dependent on the reliability and proper functioning of a vast number of interconnected information systems. To improve the security of these systems, it is necessary to measure the amount of security provided by different systems and configuration since one cannot improve what cannot be measured. In this proposal, Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) and its consul ...

  8. Mark III Enhancement Program

    SBC: KEYW-Wave Sciences Joint Venture            Topic: N/A

    The NIST array was the first public-domain digital array hardware design. It introduced the (then) novel idea of live capture and streaming of raw array microphone audio over Ethernet for use by one or more computers on a network. The design has been improved over the years to bring it to the Mark III version 2 (2005). The present system is an excellent tool for research into microphone arrays, au ...

  9. USE OF CERAMIC FUEL CLADDING TO REDUCE THE SEVERITY OF LMR ACCIDENTS

    SBC: Gamma Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING CERAMIC CLADDING MATERIALS TO REPLACE THE METALLIC CLADDING MATERIALS NOW USED WITH WATER REACTOR FUEL. SHOULD FEASIBILITY BE DETERMINED, AND EVENTUALLY COMMERCIALIZED, THE ABILITY OF WATER REACTORS TO WITHSTAND SEVERE ACCIDENTS WOULD BE ENHANCED. WITH TODAYS METAL CLAD FUEL, A RELATIVELY SHORT TIME PERIOD IS AVAILABLE AFTER A LOSS OF COOLANT ACCI ...

  10. SHALLOW WATER SONAR SYSTEM

    SBC: Ocean Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPECIAL MILITARY NARROW BEAM ACOUSTIC PROJECTORS AND TRANSMISSION TECHNIQUES CAN BE EASILY ADAPTED FOR COMMERCIAL USE TO ENABLE FISHERMEN OR RESEARCHERS TO DETECT,LOCATE, AND QUANTIFY BIOLOGICAL TARGETS WITH VERY HIGH ACCURACY IN SHALLOW WATER. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A METHOD FOR PRODUCING VERY NARROW ACOUSTIC BEAMS WITH VIRTUALLY NO SIDELOBES FROM A SMALL APERTURE PROJECTOR ARRAY. ALSO ...
