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. An Intermodal Operations Planning & Coordination System

    SBC: Zeta-Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed activity will conduct case studies of six selected United States ports to determine whether an integrated terminal information system in each of them might deliver significant benefits to port operators, port users, and shippers. Using the experience of the railroad industry as a guide, problems and possibilities for integrating information flow will be examined. The final report w ...

  2. Automated Production of Composite Energy Absorbing Utility Poles

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites, Kaman Sciences and Dr. Malcolm Ray of the University of Iowa propose to investigate the design of energy absorbing utility poles made from composite materials. This team has considerable experience in the multiple technologies needed to successfully complete the proposed program, including design of high performance composite products for automated production and design, analysi ...

  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 ...

  5. Highway Capacity Software in Portable Graphical User Interface (GUI) Format

    SBC: Catalina Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) has, for the past 10 years, been the principal tool for applying the analysis methods of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM). The HCS has been DOS-based with a very limited user interface. With a number of new research materials being produced, and an approved plan in place which leads to publication of an HCM 2000 and accompanying software, there is a strong op ...

  7. Response-Based Parameter Estimation for Determining Unknown Bridge Foundations

    SBC: Infrasense, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evaluation of bridges for vulnerability to scour or other potential sources of damage requires knowledge of foundation conditions beneath piers and abutments that are often unknown. INFRASENSE proposed to develop and demonstrate a response-based parameter estimation method (RPEM) which will address the need for a simple, low-cost system for unknown foundation evaluation. The RPEM system is based ...

  8. Transportation Planning Uses of Commercial Data

    SBC: Kjs Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For more than three decades, transportation planners have relied on survey data collected specifically for the development of travel forecasting models, which are expensive to collect and maintain on an ongoing basis. There is a plethora of data collected for other reasons that could potentially support transportation planning which is becoming more accessible through technological advances. Use ...
