  1. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: Automa Aurora Inc.            Topic: 121FT1

    The project develops a flexible (flex) route bus system, as an alternative to fixed route system plans, to enhance a transit rider’s experience by routing buses in real-time based on rider demand. The architecture leverages existing smart phone, wireless, Internet and GPS technologies but drives innovation through online routing algorithms based on recent theoretical work in optimization and mac ...

  2. GeoRad-Next Generation High Resolution, Long Range, Flexible and Modular Ground Penetrating Radar

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 122FH5

    Intelligent Automation Inc (IAI) in collaboration with IDS North America proposes to develop the next generation Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) technology called GeoRad. We will leverage an existing state –of-the-art dual-frequency dual-polarized massive array GPR and improve its accuracy so that wires, and pipes can be mapped. The accuracy of the position of the ground penetration radar directl ...

  3. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: 122FA1

    Loss of control associated with an inability of pilots to recover from upsets and unusual attitudes is the leading cause of world-wide commercial jet accidents. A key component in many of these events is pilot spatial disorientation. Improved pilot training in these abnormal flight conditions, including the ability of training simulators to replicate spatial disorientation, is needed to reduce l ...

  4. ElectroDynamic Shield for Prevention of Optical Surface Contamination

    SBC: Poly Adaptive LLC            Topic: 122FR2

    The Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) Automated Track Inspection Program uses optical systems such as cameras or laser-based systems to monitor rail performance throughout the country. These systems are hindered by adverse weather conditions that allow water, dirt and mud to coat their optical components resulting in unwanted maintenance costs. Thus FRA is seeking a low-cost, practical s ...

  5. SmartWorkZone- Situational awareness messages in the vehicle when driving through a work zone area.

    SBC: Savari Inc.            Topic: 122FH1

    Congestion due to a work zone can cause accidents, as the drivers may not be prepared to take sudden actions ahead of a work zone or in some cases may not have enough visibility/time. Transmitting alert messages in advance can enable the driver to take safety precautionary measures so that it is beneficial to both the driver and the work zone personnel. The proposal aims to develop a scalable sol ...

  6. Dual Speed Digital Smart Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC)

    SBC: Senseeker Engineering            Topic: SOCOM12003

    This readout integrated circuit (ROIC) will provide an all-digital system-on-chip solution for creating dual frame rate hybrid image sensors in combination with a wide variety detector materials. This ROIC will contain intelligent image processing capabilities along with binning, windowing, and digital zoom functions to maximize the number of applications to which it may be applied. Its high dua ...

  7. Low Dark Current, Extended Wavelength SWIR Sensors Using Hydrogenated nBn InGaAs

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: SOCOM12002

    Improved performance SWIR sensors with extended wavelength response to 2.5 microns will be developed using two disruptive technologies with which Amethyst has demonstrated success: nBn detector structures and defect passivation via hydrogenation. Similar to conventional extended wavelength photodiodes, the improved sensors will based on mismatched InGaAs grown on graded buffer layers on InP substr ...

  8. Short-Wave-Infrared (SWIR) Night Glow Photon-Counting Integrated Circuit (PCIC) Focal Plane Array (FPA) Detectors and Night Vision Cameras

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: SOCOM12002

    Almost all intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms and all small agile munitions need high-sensitivity night vision imagers for situational awareness and for target identification, tracking and discrimination. The requirements of situational awareness, responsiveness and weapon precision are ever more stringent in current and future urban warfare, where minimum collateral da ...

  9. Dual Speed Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC)

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM12003

    This SBIR requires the development of an innovative dual speed ROIC (DSROIC) architecture, mated to a detector array within the band of interest and with suitable response speed. According to the solicitation, this effort will establish a DSROIC concept capable of performing conventional staring imaging at video frame rates, while simultaneously being able to process and detect each frame at a hi ...

  10. Dual Speed Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC)

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: SOCOM12003

    Nu-Trek is proposing a revolutionary two-speed, 30 Hz/960 Hz, digital readout out integrated circuit (DROIC) that simultaneously provides very high resolution images (18-20 bits) at 30 Hz and lower resolution images (10-12 bits) at up to 960 Hz. Power consumption is about 50 mW for a moderate format DROIC. This performance is unprecedented and will enable a widespread implementation of dual speed ...
