  1. Traffic Surveillance System using Heterogeneous Sensor Technologies for National Park Service

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 141FH5

    Continued population growth and expanded commercial development have already push the daily traffic on National Park Service(NPS) Parkways exceeds design capacity especially around the urban area. The Parkways around urban areas usually serve as commuting routes for commuters and as scenic routes for visitors. Heavy traffic in rush hours, high travel speeds during non-peak periods, and condition o ...

  4. Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 122FH4

    Despite heavy vehicles representing a small portion of vehicles on the roads, they have significant influences on pavement, safety, environment, energy consumption, and the performance of traffic system. Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) has been employed as a major technology to collect heavy vehicle data on freeways. Because WIM systems are costly and sophisticated, how to effectively utilize the valuable W ...

  5. Delivering In-Vehicle Messages in Temporary Work Zones

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 122FH1

    The primary objective of SBIR Phase II is to design and validate the data flow inside a smart work zone system by designing a framework that would enable exchanging work zone related messages between remote traffic management center server TMCS and the vehicles on the road. The framework will possess the following capabilities: • Ability to broadcast Traveler Information Messages (TIM) as well ...

  6. Fast Real Time Positioning using GNSS

    SBC: SUB CARRIER SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: 121FH2

    A well-established method of differential GNSS corrections, referred to as real time kinematic (RTK), is applied to raw signals which can be obtained for inexpensive automotive grade GNSS designs. This technical approach to position determination is historically found only in higher cost survey grade devices. Today’s automotive class designs can achieve positional accuracies of slightly over one ...

  7. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 122FA1

    A study conducted by The Boeing Company of world-wide commercial jet transport accidents found the most common events to be loss of control associated with an inability of pilots to recover from upsets and unusual attitudes. A key component in some of these events is pilot spatial disorientation (SD). Improved pilot training in these abnormal flight conditions, including the ability of training si ...

  8. Protecting Ponderosa Pine from Dendroctonus with VerbPlus Repel

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 81

    This SBIR proposal targets the western pine beetle (WPB) Dendroctonus brevicomis LeConte (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae), the most destructive insect pest of ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex Lawson, in much of western North America. This insect causes high levels of tree mortality, inflicting millions of dollars in losses each year. One million or more trees, equivalent to more t ...

  9. Program Code 8.1: Forests and Related Resources, Subtopic 7: Sustainable Bioenergy and Development of Value-Added Products From Forest Resou

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 81

    For sustainable forests, residues must be managed at low cost. If residues could be converted to a valuable energy product, then management costs would be offset, leading to improved forests. To create a valuable energy product from low density residues, they must be densified to reduce handling, transport and storage costs. In this project, the technical feasibility of the low cost Biomass Fuel B ...

  10. Integration of Novel Attractants into Bait and Kill Stations for Control of the Asian Citrus Psyllid

    SBC: Inscent, Inc            Topic: 82

    Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP) vectors citrus greening disease and is thus the most serious pest faced by the US citrus industry. The ACP has already severely affected Florida citrus production, has entered Texas, and is spreading into California, where citrus is a billion-dollar industry with a history dating back to the 19th century. However, current control approaches lack effective attractants for ...
