  1. WEIGHING TRUCK COMBINATIONS IN MOTION, SOLELY ON THE TRACTOR

    SBC: Airsport Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPROVED METHOD OF WEIGHING TRUCKS WHILE IN MOTION IS PROPOSED. TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE TIME LOST AT WEIGH STATIONS, THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY NEEDS TO EXCHANGE DATA, INCLUDING WEIGHT DATA, BETWEEN MOVING TRUCKS AND ENFORCEMENT FACILITIES. LEGALLY LOADED TRUCKS WOULD THEN BE ABLE TO PROCEED WITHOUT STOPPING. THIS INVOLVES WEIGH-IN-MOTION. PRESENT WEIGHING TECHNIQUES INVOLVE LOAD CELLS OR ...

  2. EMBEDDED PAVEMENT STRESS SENSORS CONTAINING PIEZOELECTRIC COMPOSITES

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER MATERIALS, INC. (FMI) PROPOSES SENSORS WHICH CAN BE EMBEDDED IN PAVEMENT TO MEASURE STRESS AND STRAIN FROM TRUCKS PASSING OVER AT SPEEDS UP TO 60 MPH. THESE SIMPLE, DURABLE SENSORS WILL BE MADE FROM PIEZOELECTRIC COMPOSITES WHICH ACT AS PASSIVE SENSORS AND DEVELOP A CHARGE PROPORTIONAL TO THE APPLIED PRESSURE. THE CHARGE IS CONVERTED TO A VOLTAGE WHICH IS RECORDED ON NEARBY EQUIPMENT. THE PH ...

  3. Lightweight Ceramic Ablators

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Future atmospheric entry vehicles will require thermal protection materials/systems that are more durable, lower weight, combined with highly efficient protection from atmospheric heating. One low density material concept has been found to exhibit good ablation and in-depth thermal response under simulated entry conditions. This material is a low density carbon fiber reinforced carbon matrix with ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Production of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT) by Catalytic Disproportionation of CO in a Continuous Fluidized Bed System Phase II

    SBC: SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT)            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of SouthWest Nanotechnologies (SWeNT) is the development of superior technology for the large-scale manufacturing and marketing of nanotubes of unique quality for near-term specialty applications. The Phase I of this SBIR focused in demonstrating that SWeNT's process can be scaled-up to a continuous-mode operation. In the commercialization aspects, the company focused on developin ...

  6. Diboride Composites Reinforced with Silicon-Carbide Platelets

    SBC: White Materials Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The addition of Sic Platelets to selected diboride material systems offers the possibilities of increased toughness and improved Thermal protection. The innovative use of single crystal silicon carbide platelets with their highly reflective crystalographic planes, could lead to increased hot wall heat fluxes due to increased reflectivity of the platelets versus the normal particulate. In addition ...

  7. 3D Flow Field Measurements using Aerosol Correlation Velocimetry

    SBC: AeroMancer Technologies Corporation            Topic: A108

    AeroMancer Technologies proposes to develop a 3D Global Lidar Airspeed Sensor (3D-LGAS) using Aerosol Correlation Velocimetry for standoff sensing of high-resolution spatially and temporally resolved three-component global airspeeds using a scanning elastic lidar. The proposed instrument uses range-resolved elastic backscatter data from a scanning lidar beam to generate a 3D map of aerosol density ...
