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. MULTIMEDIA FEASIBILITY STUDY- PHASE I

    SBC: ANTARES Group Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTING A VISUALLY8ORIENTED DATABASE OF TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM ENHANCEMENT PROJECTS UNDERTAKEN AT THE STATE LEVEL UNDER ISTEA. THESE ENHANCEMENTS COULD INCLUDE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN PROJECTS, LANDSCAPING AND SCENIC ENCHANCEMENTS, HISTORIC PRESERVATION AND MITIGATION OF HIGHWAY RUNOFF IMPACTS ON WATER QUALITY. THE GOAL OF THE DATAB ...

  3. AEROSOL CONCENTRATION BY SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATOR

    SBC: David Gordon Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FAA AVIATION SECURITY HAS EXPRESSED A NEED FOR TECHNOLOGIES TO PROVIDE INCREASED SENSITIVITY/RESPONSE TO AIRBORNE FORMS OF EXPLOSIVES. THE TECHNOLOGIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPACE CHARGE ATOMIZING ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATION (SCAEP) HAVE CAPABILITIES IN CONCENTRATING THE CONTAMINANTS IN LARGE VOLUMES OF AIR INTO SMALL VOLUMES OF LIQUID WITH INCREASED DETECTION CAPABILITY. AN R & D PROGRAM TO DEFINE CAPT ...

  4. ADVANCED MATERIAL CONCEPTS FOR GUARDRAIL END TREATMENTS

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    GUARDRAIL TERMINALS ARE SOME OF THE MORE TROUBLESOME AND POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS ROADSIDE APPURTENANCES. RECENTLY DEVELOPED TERMINAL CONCEPTS WHICH HAVE PASSED CURRENT CRASH TEST CRITERIA TEND TO BE EXPENSIVE AND MAY REQUIRE EXCESSIVE LENGTH OF NEED, FLARE-OUT SPACE AND ADDITIONAL FILL AND GRADING. THIS PHASE I SBIR PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MORE EFFICIENT ENERGY ABSORBING TERMINAL CON ...

  6. A MEMBRANE CONCENTRATOR FOR EXPLOSIVES DETECTION

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A VAPOR DETECTION SYSTEM ABLE TO ANALYZE ORGANIC VAPORS AT VERY LOW CONCENTRATIONS WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO SCREEN AIR TRAVEL PASSENGERS AND THEIR BAGGAGE FOR EXPLOSIVES. THE LEVEL OF SENSITIVITY REQUIRED FOR THE DETECTOR IS BETWEEN 1 AND 100 X 10-15 G OF THE MATERIAL OF CONCERN. CURRENT DETECTORS WITH THIS SENSITIVITY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR USE AT AIRPORT GATES. THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS ...

  10. "MAGLEV OPTICAL DETECTION OF OBSTACLES (MODO)"

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE REALIZATION OF SAFE, HIGH-SPEED MAGLEV OR STEEL WHEEL GROUND TRANSPORTATION WILL REQUIRE A RELIABLE SYSTEM TO DETECT OBSTACLES IN THE GUIDEWAY AT A CONSIDERABLE DISTANCE. REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE ALL-WEATHER OPERATION, DAY TIME AND NIGHT TIME OPERATION, AND THE DETECTION OF OBSTACLES AROUND THE GUIDEWAY CURVE (NOT IN LINE OF SIGHT). IN ADDITION THE SYSTEM MUST BE SAFE FOR PASSENGERS ON THE TRAIN, ...
