  1. Demonstration of a Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection System Using Asset-Based Change Detection

    SBC: Noble Drone Services, LLC            Topic: 180FR4

    Today’s prevailing methods of visual track inspection tend to be expensive, disruptive to operations, and have potential to be less thorough than preferred. To help address these issues, machine vision technology emerged in the rail sector over a decade ago; however, the technology has not achieved its expected potential due to the uncontrolled nature of rail environments. Recent findings have s ...

  2. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challenge facing pipeline operators is that many pipelines are old, making their structural integrity uncertain, and that material pedigree of the pipeline steel is unknown. Therefor ...

  4. Multi-Function Fluid Measurement System using High-Definition Fiber Optic Sensing

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: T13

    Propulsion systems require rigorous and highly instrumented testing to enable a comprehensive analysis of performance and to minimize risks associated with space flight. Current testing instrumentation methods can be replaced with embedded sensor systems that are used for monitoring remote, hazardous, or inaccessible locations, while reducing cabling and power consumption. The additional informati ...

  5. Efficient CO2 and H2O Removal with Novel Adsorbentsfor Life Support Applications on Mars

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T6

    Phase II work will build upon results of Phase I investigations into the performance of cooperative adsorbents for life-support on Mars. The work will focus on the creating of a prototype EMU unit sized to support a single person (1 kg/day of CO2 removal. Tasks in support of this effort include in depth investigations of the role of water on CO2 adsorption mechanism. Improved pellet formulations w ...

  6. Integrated Photonic Filters for RF Signal Processing

    SBC: OEWAVES, INC.            Topic: T8

    In this Project, OEwaves Inc. and Georgia Tech propose to research and develop an RF photonic receiver front-end enabling microwave signal processing at a heterogeneously integrated photonic platform. In particular, we propose to develop a new technology for photonic microwave filters based on the new advances in silicon (Si)-based integrated photonics. In this endeavor, we will exploit the expert ...

  7. Co-Generation of Low-Energy, CO2-Free Hydrogen and Ordinary Portland Cement from Ca-Rich Rocks

    SBC: Brimstone Energy            Topic: G

    We are building a technology that produces low cost hydrogen while releasing low or no carbon dioxide emissions. Key to our affordable hydrogen is the co-generation of valuable co-products like: Sulfuric Acid or Cement. Our processes are lower emission, lower energy and lower cost than conventional production method. We validated a proof-of-concept in our lab in May 2019 and our objective is to de ...

  9. Chemically Engineered Process for Enhanced Carbon Mineralization Potential

    SBC: COMMUNITY ENERGY, INC.            Topic: G

    Globally, carbon capture and storage technologies are being developed to prevent CO2 from entering the atmosphere. One promising version of these technologies is carbon mineralization. Carbon mineralization reacts CO2 gas with minerals containing magnesium and/or calcium. When CO2 reacts with these minerals, it forms solid carbonate which may be sold for use in building materials. One plausible so ...
