  1. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  2. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  3. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  4. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Improved Cold Thermal Energy Storage for Refrigeration Applications

    SBC: Promethean Power Systems            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes the commercialization of a new type of industrial refrigeration system for cooling raw milk in Indian villages, without the use of backup diesel generators. The innovation lies in a novel thermal battery pack concept developed by Promethean Power Systems with a Phase I grant from the National Science Foundation. The battery s ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Novel Proteolysis-based Tools for Metabolic Engineering

    SBC: Ginkgo BioWorks            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project aims to engineer microbes for the cost-effective production of specialty chemicals. Currently, engineered microbial strains bear mutations that increase the production of chemicals of interest by inhibiting the cell's ability to produce off pathway chemicals. These "loss-of-function" mutations are critical as they effectively channel the ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Epitaxially Grown GaSb Thin Films on GaAs Substrates For Near-Field Conversion of Heat to Electricity

    SBC: MTPV LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II Project goal is to produce GaSb photovoltaic devices of multicell (MIM) construction for TPV use. Current devices use single cell. MIM devices have significant advantages over single cell in efficiency and cost. A MIM device is composed of many sub-cells physically isolated on the same substrate. This proportionally increases output voltage a ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: A Novel 10 kW Micro-turbine for Distributed Generation Applications

    SBC: Dynamo Micropower            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a low-cost 10kW micro-turbine power generator that provides the basis for portability, fuel flexibility, and reduced maintenance of conventional turbo-machines at a cost that is competitive with reciprocating engines. Current micro-turbines have prohibitively high costs due to complicated geometry and materials, bu ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Extracting Valuable Information Automatically from Objects with Surface Impressions via Photographs and Interactive Digital Surrogates

    SBC: Learning Sites, Inc.            Topic: EI

    The innovation, CUNAT (CUNeiform Automated Translator) attacks significant problems in a discipline wedded to conservative manual methods. Ancient Mesopotamian legal treatises, Egyptian medical records, and Roman political accounts--telling us exactly what happened in the words of the very people whose actions formed our history - languish untranslated, because there are too many of them, translat ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: A novel economic, efficient, environmentally benign, and sustainable multi-component separation technology based on acoustophoresis

    SBC: Flodesign Sonics, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project focuses on a novel ultrasonic acoustophoretic separation technology that is economic, efficient, sustainable, and environmentally benign. Current technologies, e.g., hydrocyclones, and membrane filtration, suffer from problems, such as high energy costs, use of consumables, fouling, and limited efficiency in separation of micron-sized ...
