  1. On-board Smart Vision System to Support Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication

    SBC: Connected Wise LLC            Topic: 180FH1

    Connected automated vehicle (CAV) technology has significant implications in terms of transportation system safety and efficiency. However, building and maintaining a wireless communication infrastructure (e.g. roadside units (RSUs), power, fiber optic lines etc.) across the U.S. is a challenging task. In urban areas, where vehicle population and vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) are high, building suc ...

  2. Guided Augmented Independence Travel Aid (GAIT-Aid)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: 180FT1

    Lack of transportation access affects approximately 30% of people with functional limitations. In fact, people with functional limitations experience transportation access barriers four times more than those without limitations. With the emerging market of low cost augmented and virtual reality technology, perceptual user interfaces (PUI) that interact more naturalistically with end-users are prov ...

  3. Power Dense Free-Piston/Free-Displacer Stirling Cryocooler

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: SB141003

    Cryogenic cooling offers significant improvements to the operation of several types of electronic systems, including computers, IR detectors, and solid-state lasers. However, commercially available liquid-nitrogen generators do not meet the size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements of many defense systems. In this proposal, Mainstream identifies a method to make significant improvements in cry ...

  4. Feature Based Localization and Navigation for Miniature Underwater Vehicles

    SBC: EDGEONE LLC            Topic: SB141005

    This proposal outlines an approach for reliable autonomous Feature Based Localization and Navigation (FBLN) in the absence of self-localizing reference signals such as GPS or long baseline acoustic positioning systems. Our proposed solution will solve the FBLN problem using several complementary approaches that minimize navigation errors. These approaches include developmental hardware, SLAM, an ...

  5. Scale-Up of ATPE Technology to Produce Highly Enriched Semiconducting SWCNTs

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

    Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have unique material properties making them very attractive for use in a variety of electronic applications. However, as-grown SWCNTs contain a mixture of tubes with heterogeneous optical and electronic properties. The chiral species must be separated in order to maximize the desired properties. To date, no large scale separation process has been accomplishe ...

  6. Quantum Dot Mid-Wave Infrared Focal Plane Array

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: ST13B002

    The objective of this proposal is to develop novel lead salt semiconductor quantum dot (QD) mid-infrared detectors for sensing and imaging applications. The proposed development is based on our recent study of PbSe photoconductive (PC) detector with a rec

  7. Develop Exercise Software to Run on ARPA JANUS-3D Warqame in UNIX Environment

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The field training of Reserve Component units is difficult because of limited training time and facilities and the difficulty in assembling all necessary player personnel. Computer wargames which allow interactive play of player personnel are a relatively inexpensive alternative and supplement to field exercises. Unfortunately, most existing simulations are designed to exercise maneuver command an ...

  8. Statistical Modeling of SOI Devices for the Low Power Electronics Program

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal by AET, Inc., directly addresses the computer aided-design system needs of the process and device development for the Low Power Electronics program. Besides the need for a commercial silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology, significant reductions in process and device dimensions will be required. The combination of SOI material and small geometry devices will mean that wafer fab manufa ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. PENtagon: A Computer-Based Simulator and Emulator

    SBC: The Athena Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mission of the modern mobile and fast response defense forces can only be fulfilled provided there exists a cadre of well qualified electronic technicians. It is therefore incumbent on the DOD to develop both field-portable instrumentation and effective training methods. The newly emerging field of virtual (or soft) instruments provides a possible partial solution to this problem. Unfortunatel ...
