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. Development of a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler

    SBC: Green Eyes, LLC            Topic: 814

    Green Eyes, LLC will demonstrate the feasibility of a Coastal Long-term Automated Self-calibration Profiler (CLASP) system capable of operating autonomously for one year without servicing. CLASP will be configured to incorporate wireless two-way communications for automated data dissemination and remote control. Two major innovations are required to develop such a system. 1. Automated bio-fouli ...

  2. CLASP Phase II: producing a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler Commercial Prototype

    SBC: Green Eyes, LLC            Topic: 814

    In our Phase I test, Green Eyes successfully demonstrated the feasibility of a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler (CLASP) system capable of autonomous operation for one year. The feasibility prototype also incorporated two-way telemetry and near real-time display of processed data. CLASP uses a profiling pump to deliver water to a flow-through multi probe sensor and additional ...

  3. Carbon Nanotube Methods for Molecular Identification of Fish Species

    SBC: Pettit Applied Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 817

    Identification of particular fish species based on specific DNA sequences is not currently time or cost effective, but morphological identification is not always possible during early development stages. The project proposed seeks to develop a microfluidic based approach using DNA hybridization, coupled with a sensitive detection method based on the use of carbon nanotubes to rapidly identify fis ...

  4. Dredged Channel Depth Monitoring

    SBC: SURVICE ENGINEERING COMPANY, LLC, THE            Topic: 844

    The condition of dredged channels in U.S. waterways is ever-changing due to sedimentation, shoaling, and the growing presence of submerged debris. Furthermore, the lack of the most current and accurate subsurface terrain data (specifically, channel depth as a function of position) at the time of a ship¿s transit introduces a level of uncertainty that prevents optimal safety and navigational ef ...

  5. Automated High Speed, Low Water Consumption Insulator Cleaner

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

    A novel third rail insulator cleaner and novel cleaning tool - the Spin Wedge, will be developed. The novel cleaner is a skate that rides directly on the third rail and is attached to a service vehicle. Four Spin Wedges, attached to the skate, direct a very rapid series of high pressure water jets arcs, like hammer blows, only on the surface to be cleaned. As the skate moves forward at high spe ...

  6. Balancing Safety and Capacity in an Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System

    SBC: Sabra & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This research is designed to develop a methodology that will identify unsafe traffic conditions such as rear-end, angle and left-turn crashes at individual signalized intersections, and in arterial and grid signalized networks. This research project will have a final product in the form of an algorithms, that would be developed to alleviate such safety risks by adjusting controller timing and ope ...

  7. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The techniques uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated im ...

  8. Hybrid System for Ultrasound Signal, Spectral, and Image Analyses to Enhance Meat Quality Evaluation in Food Animals

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Determining meat quality attributes in food animals is essential for genetic selection, sorting, and marketing. Ultrasound techniques have the potential to benefit the swine industry for improvements in both quality and yield measures by non-destructive means. There is a need to continually improve percentage intramuscular fat estimation accuracy and reduced bias, especially before integration of ...

  9. Enhancing Pork Quality and Value Using Live Animal Ultrasound Technology for Better Breeding and Marketing Decisions

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Consumers and an ever growing segment of the pork industry know that more optimal levels of marbling must be put back into the high-value pork cuts. Biotronics, Inc. is developing technology to solve this problem by using real-time ultrasound to measure the percent of intramuscular (% IMF) fat in live pigs and hot carcasses. The premise of the project is that swine breeders can be rewarded financi ...

  10. A Rapid and Sensitive Flu Virus Test

    SBC: CELLEX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Avian influenza is a highly contagious disease that can spread rapidly in a susceptible population. Thus, avian influenza may have devastating effects on the poultry industry. Because of potential interspecies transmission, as evidenced with the avian influenza virus H5N1, avian influenza may have devastating effect on public health as well. It is therefore important to prevent and/or to promptly ...
