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. A NEW MAGNETO-OPTIC BASED FLAW IMAGING DEVICE FOR UNDERWATERAPPLICATION

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS INTENDEDTO DEMONSTRATE THE BASIC FEASIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING AND OPTIMIZING A NEW MAGNETO-OPTIC 'SANDWICH' DEVICE INTENDED FOR DIRECT VISUALIZATION OF FLAWSIN FERROUS MATERIALS (STEEL) IN A MARINE ENVIRONMENT. THE DEVICE IS BASED IN THE PROPERTY OF SOME MAGNETO-OPTIC GARNETFILMS TO ROTATE THE PLANES OF POLARIZATION OF AN INCIDENT, LINEARLY POLARIZED LIGHT WAVE (FARADAY MAGN ...

  2. Ballast Water Exchange Monitoring System

    SBC: Glosten, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Glosten Ballast Management System developed under SBIR Phase I determined that tracking ballast exchanges was feasible and showed strong commercial viability. Phase II of this project is intended to demonstrate, with a full-scale shipboard installation, that automated tracking of a vessel¿s ballast system is practical and cost effective for both the operator and the regulator. The system is ...

  4. DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION OF SUBSURFACE CORROSION USING IMPROVED MAGNETO-OPTIC/EDDY-CURRENT IMAGING AND IMAGE PROCESSING

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NONDESTRUCTIVE INSPECTION FOR CORROSION IN ALUMINUM AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES OF AGING AIRPLANES HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED RECENTLY USING MAGNETO-OPTIC/EDDY CURRENT IMAGING TECHNOLOGY. THIS TECHNOLOGY WAS DEVELOPED FOR RAPID INSPECTION OF SURFACE BREAKING CRACKS NEAR RIVETS IN ALUMINUM AIRCRAFT ALLOYS, BUT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE CAPABLE OF GENERATING IMAGES OF CORRODED REGIONS AS WELL. DEVELOPMENT OF A CORROS ...

  5. Development of Commercial Space Vehicle Tracking with ADS-B

    SBC: M42 Technologies, LLC            Topic: 142FA1

    Automatic Direct Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) can be used to provide seamless integration of space and vehicles and aircraft and for more efficient airspace use as the number of commercial space vehicles operations increase. This proposed Phase II will continue the development of techniques and equipment needed to allow for commercial space vehicles to be tracked via 1090ES ADS-B for internation ...

  6. Development of Equipment Washers for Invasive Plant Protection

    SBC: Kennedy, Sheilah A            Topic: 081FH3

    SK realistic estimated timeline of 18 months maximum, hopefully sooner, will allow for design, engineer and testing modifications to be addressed. SK learned from Phase II that even the simple modifications can result in hours of engineering and design work. The successful completion of the DOTWASH system was designed and developed. The overall components were tested with good operating capabiliti ...

  8. LABORATORY INVESTIGATION OF ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS ON VORTEX WAKES

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED IN A STRATIFIED TOW TANK ARE PROPOSED TO CHARACTERIZE VORTEX WAKES UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ATOMOSPHERIC DISTURBANCE. FLOW RESEARCH HAS DEVELOPED INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR STRATIFYING THE FLUID IN THE TANK, GENERATING A CURRENT SHEAR AND CREATING AMBIENTTURBULENCE WITH GOOD CONTROL. SUCH CAPABILITIES WOULD FACILITATE THE ISOLATION OF THE EFFECTS OF THE DISTURBANCE S ...

  9. NONDESTRUCTIVE TEST METHODS FOR ACCIDENT DAMAGE INSULATED TANK CARS

    SBC: Failure Analysis Associates            Topic: N/A

    THERE EXISTS A NEED FOR FIELD EVALUATION TECHNIQUES ON DAM- AGED RAIROAD TANK CARS, A LARGE PROPORTION OF WHICH ARE OF INSULATED DESIGN CONSISTING OF AN OUTER SHELL, AN INSULA- TION SPACE, AND AN INNER LINER. THESE CARS ARE USED TO HAULMANY POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS MATERIALS AND CHEMICALS, AND THEREFORE, MUST BE CAREFULLY ASSESSED IN THE EVENT THAT THEYARE DAMAGED. A MAJOR DIFFICULTY ARISES IN ATTEMP ...

  10. PRODUCTIVE TERMINAL OPERATIONS

    SBC: William Bradford Hubbard            Topic: N/A

    INCREASING DEMAND FOR INTERNATIONAL INTERMODAL CONTAINER-HANDLING CAPABILITY IS RAPIDLY BEGINNING TO EXCEED THE CAPABILITY OF U.S. WEST COAST PORTS TO PROVIDE FACILITIES TO EFFICIENTLY ACCOMODATE IT. THIS TRAFFIC MUST MAKE THE TRANSITION FROM A MARINE MODE OF TRANSPORT, PRIMARILY TO RAIL TRANSPORT AND VICE VERSA. THE PROCESS AT PRESENT IS INEFFICIENT AND CONSEQUENTLY EXPENSIVE; THE END RESULT IS I ...
