Abstract:GS Engineering is proposing an innovative access system for freight locomotives that will make on-boarding and off-boarding significantly easier and safer by reducing the effort required and assisting workers with the climb up
and down. The proposed solutions would eliminate the large first step and… more
Abstract:The major concern of National Park Service (NPS) is that the traffic sensors must be visually unobtrusive for minimizing the impact on viewsheds or the disturbance of the historical, cultural landscape. We propose an innovative visually unobtrusive vehicle detection and travel time monitoring system… more
Abstract:There is a need to develop new technologies that will robotically relocate existing overhead utilities to the subsurface within crowded rights-of-way in an accurate and safe manner, at an acceptable cost to the project’s owner, using construction methods such as Horizontal Directional Drilling… more
Abstract:To mitigate the Dilemma Zone (DZ) problem, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes an innovative Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS). In this proposed Phase IIB work, IAI team will deploy and evaluate an enhanced version of DCWS that was designed in earlier phases. DCWS provides… more
Abstract:Multiple major pipeline failures have been caused by seam weld defects not detected by available ILI technology [August 16, 2013 WSJ]. Phase I will demonstrate a game changing capability to deliver internal and external corrosion mapping and seam weld crack detection in a low-cost tool that… more
Abstract:This proposal is in response to announcement DTRT57-13-R-SBIR2 in the area 13.2-FH1, Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel. It is proposed to use Homopolar Generator (HPG) Welding to join the high performance bridge steel in the 3” by 30” cross sections mentioned in… more
Abstract:NanoSonic will work with the Giles County, Virginia,school system,and Leidos,
a developer of ITS NanoSonic will work with the Giles County, Virginia,school
system,and Leidos,a developer of ITS and CV technologies,to create and deliver
a set of STEM lesson plans involving ITS and CV concepts. With… more
Abstract:The Pedestrian Automated System for Enforcement and Safety is a novel video and radar based system that is able to detect and track vehicles and pedestrians, and to determine when violations of pedestrian right of way have occurred. By using multiple sensor modalities the system provides a robust… more
Abstract:the goal of driver's education is to provide students with the skills necessary to safely and effectively operate a motor vehicle. While effective training has been implemented since the 1930s, research suggest opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn… more
Abstract:SK realistic estimated timeline of 18 months maximum, hopefully sooner, will allow for design, engineer and testing modifications to be addressed. SK learned from Phase II that even the simple modifications can result in hours of engineering and design work. The successful completion of the DOTWASH… more
Abstract:In phase I, a concept to detect, recognize, compute depth, and map utilities and underground infrastructure was demonstrated at traffic speeds with advances in step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SF-GPR).
The description of the proposed non-destructive evaluation method was based on first… more
Abstract: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… more
Abstract:What is needed is a lightweight system that can be deployed and used by one
person that will measure and compile the track geometry data and compute the MCO for a rail section in real time without reliance on any external reference. Such a device, the Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement System… more
Abstract: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… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
