  1. Coral Tissue Engineering for Mass-Production of Coral for the Recreational Marine Aquarium Trade

    SBC: Haereticus Environmental Laboratory            Topic: 812

    Over 10 million coral specimens a year are traded in the +$100 million/year ornamental-recreational aquaria industry.  Over ninety percent of commercial coral specimens come from some form of mass harvesting of wild corals from coral reefs.  This can have a detrimental impact to coral reefs.  We have invented a method of perpetual propagation of corals through tissue engineering.&nb ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Non-contact Track Gage Measurement System (NC-TGMS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 081FR4

    One of the causes of derailments occurs when the track gage is no longer compliant with the FRA track safety standards for gage measurments.  Ensuring track gage is in compliance with the FRA track safety standards is therefore of paramount importance to the FRA.  Currently, the FRA wishes to develop a non-contact track gage measurement system that overcomes the limitations of current sy ...

  4. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings.  This system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system.  The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera.  ...

  5. Roadway Waste Heat Electricity Production Using Impoved Roadway Paving Technologies

    SBC: Planphoria LLC            Topic: 091FH5

    Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use.  Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly differ from the requirements of other roadways, we will determine the feasibility of this concept by le ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ( ...
