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. Traffic Intersection Simulation of IntelliDrive, J2735, and DSRC/WAVE with eTEXAS

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 101FH3

    We accelerate the maturity of IntelliDrive applications and unlock the storehouse of modeling detail in TEXAS to organizations building IntelliDrive applications J2735/Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) signal controllers and on-board IntelliDrive systems. We add four SAE J2735 messages: SPAT MapData Basic Safety Messages and Signal Request Message for emergency vehicle preemption. Mapping ...

  2. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings.  The system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system.  The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera.  ...

  3. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase I, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner were selected for use. We have demonstrated that our pedestrian counting system can count multiple pedestrians walking in a large group, maintain individual tracks even when some pedestrians walk in unpredictable patterns or leave the crosswalk prematur ...

  4. Advanced Field-Deployable Monitor of Multiple Pesticides in Water

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The development of an inexpensive, field pesticide sensor would serve a large market for researchers, municipalities and regulatory agencies to minimize the risks involved in pesticide use. The long-term vision is for this technology to become a key environmental science tool to support water quality monitoring efforts. The proposed device will solve two of the most important shortcomings of prese ...

  5. Validation of a Multiple Food-borne Pathogen Detection and Strain-Level Identification Assay

    SBC: TESSARAE, LLC            Topic: 85

    The primary objectives of this Phase II project are to 1) validate performance of the prototype resequencing pathogen microarray application for detection and identification of selected food-borne pathogens, including varieties of viruses, bacteria and eukaryotic agents; 2) iterate and port the prototype application to a more practical, "market-friendly" product form factor that requires ...

  6. Cooling System for Multiple Sclerosis Patients

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: 84133S2

    This project develops a small mobile personal cooling system that can be worn conveniently by individuals with heat-related disabilities. The successful development of this mobile technology: (1) supports access, promotes integration, and facilitates the independence of individuals with disabilities in the workplace and educational settings, and during recreational activities; (2) provides increas ...

  7. Next-Generation, LED-based, Adjustable Spectrum, Pulsed Solar Simulator

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: 02a

    Solar simulators are needed for measuring the performance of solar cells and solar panels. These instruments currently use filtered high-intensity xenon lamps with poor spectral control, high voltage transients that can adversely affect electronic control circuits, lamp aging and a lack of easily-implemented size scaling. What is needed is a more reliable, low-voltage solid-state, spectrum-adjus ...

  8. Photoluminescense for Solar Cell Crack Detection

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: 02b

    In the manufacturing process for photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, a significant percentage of crystalline silicon wafers and solar cells contain microcracks that are difficult or impossible to detect with the human eye or currently available machine vision systems. These microcracks can propagate through the cells, resulting in power loss and cell breakage, due to mechanical and thermal stres ...

  9. Components for Heating and Fueling of Fusion Plasmas

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 67b

    Next generation fusion facilities will require many megawatts of RF power from dozens of gyrotrons. Conventional DC power systems, built from WWII era components, have provided the typical approach to powering high-power RF vacuum devices for the last 50 years. Typically, they suffer from reliability and availability problems, and are often only 50 70% efficient. Scaling these conventional RF pow ...

  10. Laser Vibrometer PFC Health Monitoring System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 66a

    The structural degradation of fusion reactor components within high temperature magnetically confined plasma environments is a well-known problem. The high heat flux associated with the plasma, in addition to sputtering and thermal cycling, leads to detrimental erosion and cracking of the plasma facing components (PFCs) which tile the reactor walls. At present, no evaluation method exists that wil ...
