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. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    The applicant will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will ve entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and ha ...

  4. 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. ...

  5. Tectonite Mobile Quick Repair System

    SBC: Warm Springs Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    This is a proposal for a new and innovative technology to perform quick, durable, and sustained repair of concrete and pavement structures with far less interference to transportation services and flow of traffic on highways than is possible with current materials, systems, and practices. The functional problem is that National Highwayt System consists of over 600,000 bridge structures and over 1 ...

  6. EDUCATIONAL MEDIA TO TEACH PHYSICS AND SAFETY BELT CONCEPTS TO GRAMMAR AND MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE STUDENTS

    SBC: NORTHWEST MEDIA, INC            Topic: N/A

    MANY METHODS HAVE BEEN TRIED TO INCREASE THE USE OF SAFETY BELTS BY CHILDREN BUT EDUCATION SEEMS TO BE THE MOST PROMISING. STUDENTS UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF SAFETY BELT USE WHEN THEY UNDERSTAND THE PHYSICS OF CRASHES. THEY ALSO VISUALIZE PHYSICS CONCEPTS BETTER WHEN A DRAMATIC AND REALISTIC EXAMPLE IS USED, SUCH AS THE DIFFERENCE IN CRASH CONSEQUENCES WHEN SAFETY BELTS ARE WORN. VIDEO TAPE IS ...

  7. TEST METHOD TO DETERMINE THE DEGREE OF ASPHALT STRIPPING FROM AGGREGATES

    SBC: Kelly/strazer Associates Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DAMAGE TO ASPHALT PAVEMENTS OWING TO STRIPPING OF ASPALT CEMENT FROM AGGREGATE IN THE PRESENCE OF WATER HAS PRODUCED SERIOUS DISTRESS, REDUCED PERFORMANCE, AND INCREASED MAINT NTENANCE FOR PAVEMENTS IN THE UNITED STATES, AS WELL AS OTHERAREAS IN THE WORLD. THE PHENOMENON OF STRIPPING HAS BEEN STUDIED BY MANY INVESTIGATORS DURING THE PAST 50 YEARS. THE THE HIGHWAY RESEARCH BOARD, IN JANUARY, 1971, ...

  8. ICING MONITORING EQUIPMENT

    SBC: JONAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A RUGGED NEW DEVICE FOR MONITORING THE ONSET OF ICE FORMATION ON SURFACES OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES, ROADS, BRIDGES AND AIRCRAFTS, WILL BE DEVELOPED AND A PROTOTYPE WILL BE LABORATORY TESTED. THE NOVEL GAGE AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEM IS PARTLY BASED ON THE TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO MEASURE CONDUCTIVITY OF SOLUTIONS. BASED ON EXISTING TECHNOLOGY, AND ALREADY TESTED UNDER HIGH ...
