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. Augmenting Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data with SPAT and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 111FH2

    Our goal is to create a demonstrable software system that we call IntelliFusion, which fuses Connected Vehicle data with data from traditional inductive loop detectors and uses this data to improve traffic control at intersections across the country. Our work will improve the safety of intersections and improve the mobility of traffic through adaptive traffic control which uses data produced by I ...

  2. Coating Existing Concrete Barriers to Reduce Rollover Potential

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 121FH1

    The objective of this DoT SBIR program is to further establish the technical foundation of low friction HybridSil® Slippery Overturn Automobile Protection (SOAP) coatings on concrete barriers for drastic reductions in vehicle rollover potential and significantly increased concrete impact durability thus, enabling the rapid commercial integration of these coatings. To meet this challenge, NanoSoni ...

  3. Solar Powered Colony Health Monitoring System for Pollinators

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 813

    This project will provide researchers a valuable tool to better learn about bees in almost any enviornment. The self contained power through PV panels will allow these hives to be used without the need to an outside powersource. Researchers can monitor stationary hives, as well as commercial pollination operations. Apiarists can also use these hives to gather data and monitor their own colonies. T ...

  4. Innovative Removal of Nitrate and Nitrites from Contaminated Well Water

    SBC: Micronic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Micronic Technologies has developed a patent pending low-pressure, low-temperature, rapid evaporation technology to treat contaminated water. This technology uses no chemicals, filters, or membranes in a low-pressure system a blower and a chambered cylinder to produce a tornado effect that creates micro-droplets of water for rapid evaporation and recapture after dissolved solids are shed. It is lo ...

  5. Wave Energy Converter Performance- and Cost Optimization Through Novel Controls Strategies

    SBC: Columbia Power Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    The US Department of Energy (DOE) has reported that the wave energy resource available in the US has the potential to power over 100 million homes each year, and the DOE is currently developing an aggressive strategy to support its vision of providing 15% of our nations electricity needs from water power by 2030. However, in addition to survivability and impact issues, producing cost-competitive e ...

  6. Silicon Carbide Quasi-Bipolar Junction Transistor (QBJT)-Based boost converter platform for up-tower wind applications

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 10b

    SiC power electronics are ideally suited for reducing the size and weight of power electronics systems that are used in wind power converters. Present power electronics systems require large transformers which operate a modest frequencies that prevents their use on top of the turbine tower. The electrical parasitics introduced by the interconnections between wind turbine and power conversion elect ...

  7. Multi-flux fiber optic probe of nuclear fuel performance

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 19a

    Current commercial reactor fuel performance monitoring uses external power range monitors, and evaluates coolant water for contamination that would indicate failure of a fuel element. Estimates of the localized fission rates and temperature distributions within the reactor core are approximated using nuclear simulation codes. Real-time characterization of local in-core radiation field parameters w ...

  9. Cryogenically Flexible, Low Permeability Thoraeus Rubber H2 Dispenser Hose

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 06a

    NanoSonic has recently developed high strength-to-weight ratio Thoraeus Rubber composites that maintain radiation resistance and EMI shielding upon severe and repeated mechanicals strains. This state-of-the-art, flexible shielding material was designed as a bladder for space-based enclosures that required ultra-low air permeability, radiation tolerance, resistance to hydrogen (H2) embrittlement ...

  10. 10MHz, 10k-Pixel Fast Fiber-Coupled Imaging Devices for Plasma Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPERV TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 28a

    High speed imaging of plasmas is limited to relatively short record lengths and is very expensive. Portions of the tradeoff space where slightly reduced spatial resolution allows gains in record length and reduced costs are poorly explored. HyperV Technologies Corp. proposes to construct a 100 pixel fiber coupled streak camera as a proof of concept towards an eventual goal of constructing a 100 ...
