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. Artificial Intelligence Software to Tutor Literary Braille to the Blind and Visually Impaired

    SBC: Quantum Simulations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Braille is the primary medium of written communication for persons who are blind. Prior research shows that Braille literacy strongly correlates with stronger reading habits and the pursuit of higher education, whereas Braille illiteracy negatively impacts students' academic performance and ability to navigate the everyday world. A recent report found that there has been a dramatic declin ...

  2. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...

  3. Viability of Crowd-Source Transit Information Systems

    SBC: View Update Media LLC            Topic: 121FT1

    The company is commercializing a mobile social computing system named Tiramisu (“pick me up” in Italian) that is intended to connect riders and transit service providers. It supports a variety of collaboration mechanisms designed to improve the experience of riders in a transit service and improve the service provided by service operators. The system has been designed using current knowledge i ...

  4. A Machine Learning Tool for Image Quality Assessment through Prediction of Iris Recognition Success

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC (formerly Rhobotika, LLC)            Topic: HSB0112005

    In Phase I we developed a machine learning method for predicting match score errors in iris imagery to determine the quality of the image. We now propose to develop a flexible and configurable tool for creating, refining, and applying such a match score predictor to any image quality assessment problem where a training signal can be identified. The tool will enable users to supply ground truth for ...

  5. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation policy making, work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations (Van Dongen et al. 2003; Mollicone et al. 2010). Our group was the first to document the considerable magn ...

  6. Development of manufacturing technology for the practical application of specialized and environmentally sensitive nutrients, enzymes, immune-stimulating compounds and biologics to aquafeeds

    SBC: Zeigler Bros, Inc.            Topic: 823F

    Zeigler Bros., Inc. (ZBI) has teamed with Harrisvaccines, Inc. (HV) to develop a new aquafeed manufacturing platform for the practical application of underutilized feed additives. These include enzymes, immune-stimulating compounds and biologics that require specialized protection to ensure they are delivered to the animal as viable compounds. ZBI pioneered microparticle feeds and will use this ...

  8. App for Speech Development for Students with ASD

    SBC: Handhold Adaptive, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are severe neurodevelopmental disabilities characterized by deficits in social and communication skills and the presence of restrictive, repetitive behaviors. For the 80 percent of individuals with ASDs who speak, prosody—the rhythm, stress, and intonation of speech—is among the most noticeable and chronic impairments. Prosodic speech deficits impede social int ...

  9. Compact, Regenerable, Low Power Adsorber for Spacesuit CO2, Humidity, and Trace Contaminant Control

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Current approaches planned for space suit atmosphere revitalization (AR) are neither compatible with each other nor regenerable in space, and have a high life cycle operating cost associated with them. The proposed PCI innovation in collaboration with University of Hartford involves synthesizing improved sorbents on high surface area supports tailored for CO2, water and trace contaminant removal. ...

  10. Integrated Vibration and Acceleration Testing to Reduce Payload Mass, Cost and Mission Risk

    SBC: American Aerospace Advisors, Inc            Topic: T702

    We propose to develop a capability to provide integrated acceleration, vibration, and shock testing using a state-of-the-art centrifuge, allowing for the test of synergistic effects of these combined environments. By installing a shaker table on the centrifuge, the test setup can provide both sustained and dynamic-g loads as well as simultaneous vibration loads, in two independent axes. This metho ...
