The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until September, 2020.

  1. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  2. In-Situ X-Ray Imaging Systemand X-Ray Fluorescence for Planetary Science

    SBC: Advanced Analyzer Labs, Inc.            Topic: S1

    To answer the questions such as how have the myriad chemical and physical processes that shaped the solar system operated, interacted, and evolved over time? from ldquo;Vision and Voyages for Planetary Science in the Decade 2013-2022rdquo; by National Research Council, we propose to develop a compact, low-power, in-situ X-ray imaging and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) instrument called Tomo-XRF probe to ...

  3. Real-Time Flight and Airspace Risk Monitoring for Airline Operations

    SBC: Robust Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Our Flight and Airport-Airspace Monitor (FAAM) will provide airline dispatchers and airline operations center managers a real-time tool to estimate the safety margin of a terminal airspace and flights operating in that airspace. Our concept divides the safety monitoring architecture into two components: an Airspace/Airport Monitoring component, and a Flight Monitoring system. The Airspace Monitor ...

  4. Dispatch Operations and Control for Autonomous Fleets

    SBC: Robust Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Robust Analytics proposes a suite of near-term technologies that can support managing multiple autonomous or semi-autonomous aircraft including Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicles simultaneously. Our approach builds off the existing knowledge base of airline operations, leveraging emerging technologies that enable autonomous flight.Our approach enables monitoring of ...

  5. Probabilistic Formulation of Multi-Fidelity Aerodynamic Databases (ProForMA)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A1

    The design of new aircraft involves understanding the flow physics around the configurations as well as their stability and control characteristics over the entire flight envelope. Such a coverage is extremely expensive if wind tunnel and flight tests are the primary means of understanding the aerodynamic characteristics. Hence, there has been a push towards use of simulations for understanding ae ...

  6. Integrated On-Chip Power for Harsh Environments

    SBC: CoolCAD Electronics            Topic: S4

    CoolCAD Electronics proposes the development of a silicon carbide (SiC) based motor controller suitable for most stepper motors. The silicon carbide motor controller will be designed and fabricated to operate at extremely high temperature and high radiation environments, beyond the reach of a typical silicon-based motor controller.To demonstrate a successful SiC motor controller, we will fabricate ...

  7. An Early and In-Situ Cell Failure Detection and Reconditioning System for Lithium-Ion Batteries

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A2

    There is substantial evidence suggesting that a Lithium-ion cell undergoes internal structural and mechanical changes prior to a catastrophic failure. Some of these changes include electrode expansion, electrode ruffling, dendrite formation, internal gas formation, and internal density changes. A key characteristic of these changes is that most of them occur prior to any external measurable parame ...

  8. Machine Vision System to Support Vehicle to Infrastructure (V21) Safety Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 18FH1

    To keep drivers and passengers of vehicles safe, especially in rural areas with limited access to Information and Communications Technology (ICT), the DOT and the commercial automotive industry are keenly interested in machine vision based V2I and CAV technology to perform functions such as navigating assistance in areas where GPS or detailed maps are unavailable, caution and warning systems capab ...

  9. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based System for Advanced Freeway Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 18FH4

    Planned or unplanned traffic events, such as work zones, collision accidents, sporting games and stormy/snowy weather, arise along our roadway systems and affect normal traffic operations. These anomaly events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. Thus, local or regional Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have spent tremendous amount of resources responding ...

  10. Robotic Utility Mapping and Installation System (RUMI)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Today, urban underground spaces are shared by multiple utility companies for laying power lines, gas lines, water supply/sewage pipes, fiber-optic cables, etc. The recordings of such buried utilities are often erroneous, inadequate, or outdated (if they ever exist) due to insufficient surveying methodologies and as-built recording practices. Ability to accurately locate and provide awareness of bu ...
