The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

      City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects.  Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required.  This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process a ...

  3. SHARE-System for Human-factors Assessment and Readiness Evaluation

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: 101FA1

      This proposal addresses the development of a System for Human-factors Assessment and Readiness Evaluation (SHARE).  The SHARE system will enable the classification and modeling of the portfolio of technologies being developed under the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen).  It will develop and validate anchors by which to measure and model the maturity of human fact ...

  4. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

      This SBIR project will develop a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train.  The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelength high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature from these measurements. The feasibi ...

  5. Air-Steam Hybrid: an Alternative to Internal Combustion-cleaner, more efficient, multi-fuel compatible retrofit-able

    SBC: Bevilacqua-Knight Inc.            Topic: 101FT1

      An air/steam propulsion system has been developed and key performance attributes have been demonstrated qualitatively:  a mixed propellant system can provide immediate power without a boiler, and that power can be varied by varying the ratio of water and air in the propellant mix.  What is proposed is an analysis of scaling this very promising technology to propel buses and trains ...

  6. Transportation Autonomous Device

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR4

      Railroad yards are in constant movement with potentially thousands of train cars moving over miles of track compressed into a limited area.  The harsh environment presents many safety hazards for railroad workers who must move through this environment and perform assigned tasks.  Job related injuries cost he railroads over $1 billion annually and from 2008 30.3% of those injuries ...

  7. Field Rail Welding with the Electroslag Welding Process

    SBC: EST&D LLC            Topic: 101FR5

      The two most frequently used field rail welding processes, thermite and flash-butt, have limitations.  The thermite process, though less expensive and more portable, sometimes produces welds with inclusions which can limit short term quality and long term fatigue life.  Flash-butt, which produces a very high quality weld, is not as portable as thermite.  SBIR solicitation 10. ...

  8. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

      The ability to monitor the integrity of a bridge structure and detect damage or condition changes at early stages is of significant importance for bridge operation safety.  Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques.  In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a low cost and effi ...

  9. A Wireless Sensor Network with Accurate Time Synchronization and Wide Area Coverage for Traffic Signal Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 101FH2

      Increasing population, vehicles, and the excessive traffic induced by urban sprawl is overburdening the existing highway system.  Traffic delays and air pollution are often caused by ineffective traffic signal timing.  Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are adopted to better manage and control the surface transportation network in many cities.  However, there is lack of ...

  10. Lightweight, Cost-Effective, Energy-Efficient Pultruded composite Train Roof with Phase Change Material Core

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: 101FT1

      KaZaK Composites, Inc. proposes to work with Oak Ridge National Labs and Bombardier Transportation to design and develop a lightweight, cost effective pultruded composite rail car roof.  Including a novel Phase Change material core.  The program goal will be the design of a composite sandwich panel replacement for the current welded aluminum roof structure of passenger rail cars.& ...
