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. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume ...

  2. Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Proposal title: Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortu ...

  3. A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection 3/19/2018 The US energy transport pipeline system is a longstanding distribution network with most of its still standing pipes being installed between the 1950s–1970s. Due to degradation mechanisms, such as embrittlement, capable of causing a two-fold reduction in fracture toughness, pipe rupture is a major risk. Current nondestructive ins ...

  4. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  5. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  6. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  7. Improving the Ventilation of Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key inn ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. ENHANCED GPS FOR TERMINAL AREA NAVIGATION

    SBC: Deering System Design Consulta            Topic: N/A

    THIS SBIR PROPOSAL DEFINES THE SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR A LOWCOST INTEGRATED PRECISION APPROACH, LANDING AND TAXI SYSTEM BASED ON GPS NAVIGATION FOR GENERAL AVIATION USERS. FLIGHT TESTS WILL BE CONDUCTED USING DIFFERENTIAL OR ENHANCED DIFFERENTIAL GPS TECHNIQUES. THE RESULTS OF THESE TESTS WILL HELP DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE GPS-BASED SYSTEM, THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE GPS RECEIVER, ...

  10. 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 ...
