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 Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  3. Networkable Automated Water Vapor Lidar for Tropospheric Profiling

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 03g

    Measurement of the vertical profile of H2O vapor in the lower atmosphere can provide new understanding of the dynamics of H2O vapor mass transport. Such measurements can improve predictive capability for precipitation forecasts as well as lead to increased understanding of complex feedback mechanisms involving H2O vapor, temperature, radiative balance, and precipitation and therefore are important ...

  4. Advanced Plastic Scintillators for Nuclear Non-Proliferation Monitoring

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03c

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) is a serious threat. Preventing the spread of these nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years. Neutron detection is an important component of the overall detection techniques used in identifying WMDs. At present, there is need for an efficient detection system that would allow neutron detection wit ...

  8. Solid-State Neutron Detector for Nuclear Material Accounting

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Nuclear material accounting within the nuclear fuel cycle includes preventing and detecting theft or diversion of special nuclear material. Neutron detection by use of pressurized He-3 tubes is a critical component within the scheme of safeguarding nuclear materials. Due to the worldwide shortage and high demand of 3He supply, alternative neutron detection technologies are required to ...
