Award List:

A BATTLEFIELD SEISMIC NETWORK SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: E Mercado
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Algorithms are derived that define the paths of maximum coherency for a seismic event generated by firing an artillery weapon from an arbitrary location. signal extraction techniques are described to extract the coherent signal from an event recorded on multiple receivers. simulated battlefield… More

A REAL TIME SCOUR MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Dr. E.b. Davies , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $49,655.00

A REAL TIME SCOUR MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Dr. E.b. Davies , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $250,000.00
Abstract:
Proposed is a new instrument based on the refraction mode ofseismic surveying to measure the development of scour adjacent to a bridge pier or abutment. the instrument uses a repeatable acoustic source placed nextto the concrete structure and an array of hydrophones in a pvc pipe that is buried… More

SBIR Phase I: A Non-Destructive Method for Examining BridgeFoundations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Edward Mercado
Award Amount: $74,842.00

An Optical Rolling Wheel Deflectometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Edward Mercado
Award Amount: $10,000.00

An Optical Rolling Wheel Deflectometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Edward Mercado
Award Amount: $99,186.00

SBIR Phase I: Pneumatic Scour Measurement System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Edward Mercado, PI
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses the problem of measuring scour depth around bridge foundations under flood conditions. Flood-borne debris collecting around bridge piers forms bird's nests that aggravate scour by creating excess turbulence and preventing… More
