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. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

      City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects.  Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required.  This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process a ...

  2. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  3. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Cities must perform detailed assessments of sidewalks and streets, including curb ramps, pedestrian signals, crosswalks, street furniture, and other components to determine compliance with the Public Rights-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines. However, current assessment methods are inadequate or unreasonable due to time and resources required. The objectives of this project are to: 1) develop elect ...

  4. MARKETING AND ENGINEERING ANALYSIS OF SPVD APPLICATIONS

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATE BOTH CONVENTIONAL AND INNOVATIVE USES FOR THE SELF POWERED VEHICLE DETECTOR (SPVD) AND TO MODIFY THE EXISTING DESIGN, IF REQUIRED, TO MEET THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE NEW APPLICATIONS. THE OVERALL GOAL OF THE PROPOSED SBIR PHASE IEFFORT CAN BE SUBDIVIDED INTO THREE FUNDAMENTAL OBJECTIVES: RESEARCH INTO THE VARIOUS APPLICATIONS OF SPVD TECHNOLOGY AND ...

  5. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...

  7. OCEAN WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER

    SBC: Ocean Wave Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR AIDS TO NAVIGATION (ATON) ARE ESSENTIAL SIGNPOSTS FOR SAFE PASSAGE ALONG COASTAL AND OFFSHORE SEAWAYS. PRESENTLY, THEIR SIGNALS ARE POWERED BY ON-SITE ENGINE GENERATORS REQUIRING CONSIDERABLE AND COSTLY MAINTENANCE. ATON AUTONOMY WILL BE GREATLY INCREASED WITH DEEP DISCHARGE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY PROVIDING THAT ON-SITE CHARGING SOURCES ARE USED. AMONG NATURALLY AVAILABLE SOURCES, THE UNCEASING ...

  8. Calibration of an Autonomous Navigation System Using GPS and Machine Learning

    SBC: Sierra Nevada Corporation            Topic: N/A

    GPS receivers are heavily used in aviation for both visual and instrument flights. There is a need for a backup system so that enroute and non-precision approaches can be flown without reliance on ground based systems should GPS be unavailable. We propose to use barometric pressure, airspeed, low-cost inertial sensors, three-axis magnetometer along with high-fidelity geomagnetic models, and an ...

  9. Helmsman's Recording Accelerometer (HRA)

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) require a real time display of appr opriate data to allow the helmsman to access the damage potential to his cargo (equipment/personnel) and support his decision relative to speed and course selection when operating in rough water. Furthermore, maintenance support personnel need quantitative data to support design decisions and maintenance activities. This proposa ...

  10. Supercharged Diesel Non-Gasoline Burning Outboard Engine

    SBC: G.s. Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal outlines an SBIR Phase I supercharged uniflow diesel non-gasoline burning outboard engine design capable of diesel fuel operation and lightweight construction. Inherent specific weight penalties of the Diesel cycle being inversely proportional to specific displacement, indicates a scale reduction of these engines demand greater design discipline relative to the combustion physics th ...
