  1. Use of High-Resolution Imaging Techniques for Condition Assessment and Damage Detection of Bridges

    SBC: S C SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 180FH2

    This proposal consists of an innovative integrated solution for damage diagnosis of bridge structures using a non-contact image-based measurement methodology. High-resolution and regular camera systems will be used to capture the bridge movements and the traffic passing the bridge, respectively. Computer vision techniques will be used to extract the deflection time-histories of the bridge as well ...

  2. Integrated Sensor Unit for Signalized Intersections

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 180FH3

    The DOT seeks an integrated unit capable of identifying and tracking individual vehicles with high accuracy using multiple vehicle detection inputs, including video images, radar-based detection, and vehicle-to-everything radio signal inputs (DSRC, cellular-V2X), with a deep learning-based engine to fuse collected data. To address this DOT need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to contin ...

  4. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...

  5. EXPLOSIVES DETECTION WITH A HAND-HELD FOURIER TRANSFORM ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETER

    SBC: Femtometrics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXPLOSIVE DETECTION CAPABILITIES AT MOST AIRPORTS CONSIST OF MAGNETOMETERS AND X-RAY EQUIPMENT THAT WERE DESIGNED TO DETECT HANDGUNS. U.S. PUBLIC LAW 101-604 WAS ENACTED AFTER THE PAN AM 103 INCIDENT WHICH DICTATES THAT IN ADDITION TO CARRY-ON LUGGAGE, CHECKED BAGS, MAIL AND CARGO MUST BE MONITORED PRIOR TO BEING LOADED ONTO AN AIRCRAFT. THE CANDIDATE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIESMUST ALSO BE TESTED BY A ...

  7. CRITICAL SECTOR DETECTOR TOOL

    SBC: Iat            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PHASE I WORK WILL DEVELOP A CRITICAL SECTOR DETECTOR TOOL CONCEPT THAT WORKS. THE TOOL WILL EVALUATE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER WORKLOAD. IT WILL ANALYZE THE TASK REQUIREMENTS OF HUMAN CONTROLLERS, CALCULATE WORKLOAD FOR THE VARIOUS CONTROLLER POSITIONS OF A SECTOR TEAM, AND COMPARE WORKLOAD ESTIMATES WITH SATURATION LIMITS TO IDENTIFY POTENTIAL OVERLOADS. IT WOULD ALLOW AIR TRAFFIC CONTR ...

  8. STRUCTURES

    SBC: Invocon Consultants            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO MONITOR VIBRATION IN HIGHWAY BRIDGES. IT IS DESIRABLE TO MONITOR MANY POINTS ON THE BRIDGE. THE CURRENT PROBLEM IS THAT SENSORS MUST BE WIRED TO A CENTRAL LOCATION. WIRE IS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL AND TO MOVE. THE SOLUTION IS TO COLLECT SENSOR DATA BY RADIO. A SYSTEM EXISTS THAT ELIMINATES WIRE. IT GATHERS SENSOR DATA TO A CENTRAL LOCATION BY RADIO. THE SYSTEM'S UNIQUE FEATURE IS THA ...
