  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. BRL-CAD BASED LUGGAGE SIMULATION TOOL

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MODELING ANBD SIMULATIONS ARE USED EXTENSIVELY IN THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF "BULK" EXPLOSIVES DETECTION DEVICES. HOWEVER, OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF THE INPUT MODEL, NAMELY LUGGAGE AND EXPLOSIVE CONTENTS, CAN LEAD TO POOR DETECTOR DESIGNS. MANUAL PRODUCTION OF SUCH INPUT IS COSTLY AND ERROR PRONE. THIS EFFORT WILL AUTOMATE THE PRODUCTION OF SIMULATED LUGGAGE THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER TOOL. ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF ANGULAR ACCELEROMETER

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH EFFORT COMPLETED RECENTLY FOR THE AIR FORCE IDENTIFIED NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR ANGULAR MOTION MEASUREMENT. TWO CONCEPTS WERE FOUND WHICH APPEAR TO OFFER POTENTIAL FOR AN EXCELLENT COMBINATION OF SMALL SIZE, WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE, WIDE BANDWIDTH AND EASE OF FABRICATION AND UTILIZATION. ONE DEVICE, CALLED A FLUID-FILLED BENDER BEAM, USES PIEZOCERAMICELEMENTS TO PRODUCE A SIGNAL PROPORTIONAL TO ...

  4. COMPUTER-BASED PAVEMENT DISTRESS INDENTIFICATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Brent Rauhut Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AS PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS BECOME THE PRIMARY TOOL BY WHICH AGENCIES ALLOCATE THE FUNDS FOR PAVEMENT REHABILITATION, THE ACCURACY OF DISTRESS DATA. ONE OF THE LEAST EXPENSIVE BEING MANUAL DISTRESS SURVEYS. HOWEVER, MANUAL DISTRESS SURVEYS HAVE THEIR LIMITATIONS. INACCURACIES THAT ARISE IN THE ACCUMULATION AND SUMMARIZATION OF THE DISTRESS DATA CAN LIMIT OR IMPAIR ITS USE SIGNIFICANTLY. ONE WAY ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. INNOVATIVE FIRE RESISTANT ("FIREPROOFING") COATINGS FOR USE ON COMPOSITE PRODUCTS ABOARD U.S. COMMERCIAL SHIPS

    SBC: Omega Point Laboratorytorie            Topic: N/A

    THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD (USCG) HAS LONG BEEN INTERESTED IN THE MITIGATION OF HAZARDS TO LIFE SAFTEY FROM FIRE ONBOARD SHIPS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERIOR FIRE RESISTANT COATINGS FOR GLASS-REINFORCED POLYMERIC (GRP) COMPOSITES, WHICH MAY BE USED AS BULKHEADS, DECKS AND INTERIORWALLS, IS ONE WAY TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM. THE COAST GUARD, OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES (E.G., THE U.S. NAVY) AND NUMERO ...

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

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 142FH1016

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) is pleased to propose the further design and development of “MySidewalk,” a mobile application facilitating the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition data. MySidewalk utilizes advances in social networks, mobile data collection, and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. Phase I demonstrated the feasibility of the conce ...
