  1. Robotic Utility Mapping and Installation System (RUMI)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 141FH3

    Today, urban underground spaces are shared by multiple utility companies for laying power lines, gas lines, water supply/sewage pipes, fiber-optic cables, etc. The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices. Ability to accurately locate and provide awareness of bu ...

  2. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based System for Advanced Freeway Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 18FH4

    Planned or unplanned traffic events, such as work zones, collision accidents, sporting games and stormy/snowy weather, arise along our roadway systems and affect normal traffic operations. These anomaly events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. Thus, local or regional Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have spent tremendous amount of resources responding ...

  4. Decentralized, Public, and Mobile-Based Sidewalk Inventory Tool

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 142FH1

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) is pleased to propose the further design and development of MySidewalk mobile application facilitating the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition data. The MySidewalk application utilizes advances in social networks and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. Phase I and II research was facilitated by inputs from City of Colle ...

  5. Comprehensive Chemical, Biological, and Explosives Indicator Ticket Platform for Rapid Field Identification of Threats

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A17063

    For mission success in the modern operational environment, chemical threat agents must be rapidly detected and accurately identified. Currently M8 and M9 papers are used, but these are restricted in the types of agents that can be detected and are handicapped by high rates of false identifications. In Phase I, highly selective color change chemical reactions were formulated and deployed onto paper ...

  6. Improved Lateral Stability for Unmanned Ground Vehicle Convoys

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: A14080

    Building on the software algorithms and technology developed under Phase II, Robotic Research will refine and implement CLICS software and upgraded hardware on relevant AGR/ExLF systems for convoy operations. The driving technical objective is to refine our software to become the “middleware” which any robotic system may use as the foundation for convoy operations.

  7. Long-life, Shelf-stable, Wet Layup Laminating Resins and Paste Adhesives

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A17005

    A composite repair matrix resin was demonstrated during Phase I having an extended shelf life of three to five years. This capability will improve quality and consistency of composite repair processes. It will also reduce the need for re-certification of expired resin materials in field repair operations. The resin was designed specifically for composite repair applications, although the technolog ...

  8. Self Regenerating Dust Masks for Punishing Military Operational Environments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A12116

    Our combatants deployed in operational environments which have high airborne particulate matter (PM) levels are at serious risk of developing respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately no standardized PM protective equipment can currently be issued due to limitations for extended wear during sustained aerobic activity. Lynntech, Inc. proposes to develop lightweight PM filter face coveri ...

  9. Non-toxic Hydrophobic Coatings for Improved Infrared and Red Phosphorus Obscurant Performance

    SBC: NCD TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A17057

    Phase I successfully developed novel plasma coating technologies and diamond-like carbon (DLCs) coatings for producing non-toxic hydrophobic coatings to improve the infrared obscurant performance of metal flakes and red phosphorous (RP) powder. The DLC coatings were shown to be highly hydrophobic, reduce agglomeration, prevent oxidation, reduce phosphine production, and not interfere with the burn ...

  10. A Platform Agnostic Low SWaP-C Chirped LFMCW Radar for Counter-UAS Application


    Intelligent Fusion Technology, Inc. (IFT) designed a high performance, low SWaP radar system that can be mounted on a group 1 or 2 UAS for counter-UAS applications, on forward observation missions. IFT's innovative radar structure allows the Tx and Rx antennas to co-exist on a small platform without degrading the radar long range performance. With relatively low output power, after applying advanc ...
