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. MyASL Quizmaker

    SBC: Institute For Disabilities Research & Training Inc            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: American Sign Language (ASL) is a visual and gestural language that is distinct from English, has its own grammar, syntax, vocabulary, and no text representation. Despite the differences between the languages, students who use ASL are typically assessed with protocols for English-speaking students, as few exist specifically for students who use ASL. Not surprisingly, prior research shows ...

  2. Swarm Robotic Sensing Platform for Search and Rescue

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: HSB0121006

    Teleoperation is the most commonly used method for controlling Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (SUGV) into areas that are too dangerous or constrained for humans or canines to explore. These SUGVs provide cameras and sensors that provide situational awareness to the operators. However, as the number of SUGVs increases, so do the constraints and operational requirements that they impose on the mis ...

  3. Mitigation of Contact Lens, Eye Surgery, Pupil Dilation, and Other Challenges in Iris Recognition

    SBC: Member of the Family LLC            Topic: HSB0111005

    Member of the Family LLC's proposal is designed to study and analyze the effects of contact lens usage, eye surgery and various types of pupil dilation as they relate to the accuracy and performance of iris recognition systems. Additionally we propose to determine whether or not appropriate measures exist or can be created to mitigate the effects of these factors in iris recognition. While others ...

  4. Examination of HM Portable Tanks within Transportation System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 112PH1

    Portable tanks used to transport hazard materials are often subject to forces and stress, thermal cycle loading, and shock/vibration throughout the transportation process. It is an interest to assess what effects may occur during loading and unloading from one shipping mode to another and what conditions the HM packages will experience in that specific mode. An in-situ sensor system is proposed he ...

  5. Innovative Solutions to Effectively Enforce Anto-texting Rules on Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV) Drivers

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM2

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes an innovative anti-texting system which does not prevent the use of any cell phone but can detect and record the texting and driving behavior for enforcement instead. This proposal lays out a concrete plan to develop a robust and cost effective system that can detect, identify and record the instances when a driver is texting (or voice calling without ha ...

  6. Communicating Towed unit (Trailer) Vehicle Identification Number(s) (VIN) to the Powered Unit

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 121FM1

    Usually the lifetime of a trailer is much longer than tractors; tractors must work with a variety types and ages of trailers over the course of their use. In many scenarios (e.g., roadside, border crossing, smart parking, connected vehicle initiative, etc.), it is necessary to identify trailer(s)' VIN(s) and know their order attached to the powered unit. An automated trailer VIN identification and ...

  7. Three dimensional detection ranging and mapping of utilities and underground infrastructure at intersections using step-frequency groung penetrating radar without traffic control

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 122FH5

    A method to detect, locate, and map utilities and underground infrastructure is proposed at traffic speeds based on recent advances in step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SFGPR). Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated imaging of subsurface civil infrastructure elements such as pavement structure and inductive loop detectors embedded in the pavement. The proposed r ...

  8. GeoRad-Next Generation High Resolution, Long Range, Flexible and Modular Ground Penetrating Radar

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 122FH5

    Intelligent Automation Inc (IAI) in collaboration with IDS North America proposes to develop the next generation Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) technology called GeoRad. We will leverage an existing state –of-the-art dual-frequency dual-polarized massive array GPR and improve its accuracy so that wires, and pipes can be mapped. The accuracy of the position of the ground penetration radar directl ...

  9. SCAP Content Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NIST and G2 have been on the forefront of security automation with the development of the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). However, the barrier to entry for SCAP content creation is the requirement to have in depth knowledge of the underlying specifications. This project aims to allow security experts to create SCAP content without the need to be an expert in the specification. By leve ...

  10. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...
