The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Low-Cost, Full-Field, Surface Profiling Tool for Mechanical Damage Evaluation

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent source of leaks and ruptures in pipelines.  The most common type of mechanical damage is dents, sometimes associated with secondary features such as gouges, external corrosion, or cracks.  Currently used techniques for assessing dents are not accurate enough for reliable determination of fitness for service.& ...

  2. Design, Development and Testing of Optimized "Soft Crack Arrestors"

    SBC: ENGINEERING MECHANICS CORPORATION OF COLUMBUS            Topic: 07PH1

    EMC2''s Phase II proposal focuses on continuing development of "Soft Crack Arrestors" through additional key material property, detailed analytical refinement of the design, and full-scale pipe validation testing.  This material testing will be done over a range of temperatures to cover extreme conditions for future pipeline designs, with special attention to arctic applications.  It is ...

  4. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Detonators

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify explosive detonators. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape, and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by ...

  7. VEHICLE AXLE DETECTOR BASED ON NON-CONTACT DETECTION

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PACIFIC-SIERRA RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL SENSOR MODULE FOR COUNTING VEHICLE AXLES ON ROADWAYS. THIS SENSOR WOULD NOT REQUIRE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THE ROADBED, AND COULD BE SAFELY SETUP WITHOUT IMPEDING TRAFFIC EVEN TEMPORARILY. THE SENSOR WILL DETECT THE AXLES ON MULTIPLE LANE HIGHWAYS AND KEEP THE SEPARATE LANE COUNTS DISTINCT. THIS ROADWAY LAND AXLE DETECTOR (LAD) IS BASED ON EXISTING ...

  8. Determination of the Onset of Widespread Fatigue Damage

    SBC: Qual-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QUAL-X proposes to nondestructively inspect the extensive surface areas of aging commercial airliners for corrosion and fatigue damage. QUAL-X will characterize the above surfaces both at local and global areas of interest using chemical gas penetrants and advanced gas sensor techniques; both of which were developed as an extension of the company's unique and singular experience with the ket gas ...

  9. Optics for Focal Plane Photochromic Anti-glare Device

    SBC: Quantic Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anti-glare visors and rearview mirrors for cars can be constructed by inserting a photochromic layer in the focal plane of an optical system. Rays from intense glare souces are focused and create dark spots on the photochromic layer and thus self attenuate. Rays from dim objects are left unaffected. The optics can be achieved with either conventional lenses or microlens arrays. Anti-glare devi ...

  10. Transportation Planning Uses of Commercial Data

    SBC: Systan, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Transportation planning currently relies on extensive and expensive household surveys, which are so costly that they are rarely conducted more than once every ten years and are often out-of-data within a year or two. Research is proposed that would test the feasibility of supplementing or supplanting these surveys with commercial data bases. To accomplish this, existing data sources will be revi ...
