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. VESSEL TRACKING SYSTEM EQUIPMENT

    SBC: P F Newcomb & Associates            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1992 Department of Transportation
  2. HTSC SUPERCONDUCTING SHIELDS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM OF SHIELDING LARGE AREAS OF THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT FROM THE RESIDUAL MAGNETIC FIELD EMANATING FROM THE DRIVE AND LEVITATION MAGNETS IS ADDRESSED USING AN ACTIVE/PASSIVE HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING SHIELD. THE LARGE AREA SHIELDS REQUIRED BY MAGLEV AND THE RESIDUAL FIELD LEVEL MAKE PASSIVE SHIELDING PROHIBITIVE. ACTIVE SHIELDING WITH AN ARRAY OF WATER COPPER CANCELLATION COILS WI ...

  3. DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION OF SUBSURFACE CORROSION USING IMPROVED MAGNETO-OPTIC/EDDY-CURRENT IMAGING AND IMAGE PROCESSING

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 Department of Transportation
  4. ADVANCED ELECTRIC SWITCHING CONCEPTS FOR MAGLEV VEHICLES

    SBC: POWER SUPERCONDUCTOR APPLICATIONS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THREE SYSTEMS OF ACTIVE GUIDEWAY SWITCHING CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED WHICH USE FAIL- SAFE ELECTRICAL SWITCHING WITHOUT NEED FOR LARGE MECHANICAL MOVEMENT OF GUIDEWAY STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE SPECIFIC APPLICATION OF THIS APPARATUS TO A 300 MPH, 40- 80 TONNE CLASS MAGLEV VEHICLE OF 50-200 PASSENGERS IS USED AS A BASELINE DESIGN WITH A VEHICLE WIDTH 3.65 M AND EXTENDING IN LENGTH FROM 14 M TO 56 M. THE TH ...

  5. RETROFITTABLE TRAIN ALERTER DEVICE REQUIRING COGNITIVE RESPONSE

    SBC: Pulse Electronics Inc            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO TRAIN ALERTER DEVICES SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE "DEAD-MAN PEDAL." THERE CONTINUES TO BE ROOM FOR ADDITIONAL ENHANCEMENTS, PARTICULARLY IN LIGHT OF TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES IN THE FIELD OF ERGONOMICS AND HUMAN FACTORS. ONE AREA OF POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENT LIES IN THE RESPONSE THAT THE DEVICE REQUIRES FROM THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER. DEVICES CURRENTLY IN USE HAVE B ...

  6. EVALUATION OF HIGH SENSITIVITY MAGNETIC IMAGING FOR DETECTION OF HIDDEN CORROSION

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

    EXPERIMENTS AT THE MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (MIT), THE NAVAL RESEARCH LABORATORY, AND QUANTUM MAGNETICS HAVE DEMONSTRATED A NEW POWERFUL NONINVASIVE TECHNIQUE FOR MONITORING ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION PROCESSES VIA THEIR ASSOCIATED MAGNETIC FIELDS. IN ADDITION TO REMOTELY DETECTION CORROSION ACTIVITY, SIMPLE ANALYSIS OF THE TIME EVOLUTION OF THESE MAGNETIC FIELDS CAN HIGHLIGHT SPECIFIC ...

  7. AN AUTOMATED ACTIVITY LOG PREPARATION SYSTEM FOR COAST GUARD COMMAND CENTERS

    SBC: Reticular Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACTIVITY LOGS ARE CURRENTLY MAINTAINED BY COAST GUARD WATCH PERSONNEL. THE CONTENTS VARY DEPENDING ON THE WATCHSTANDER AND EVENTS. THE ACTIVITY LOG MAY CONTAIN HANDWRITTEN ENTRIES, COMPUTER GENERATED TEXT, COPIES OF RECEIVED FACSIMILIES AND VARIOUS OTHER ENTRIES. THE COAST GUARD NEEDS AN IMPROVED METHOD FOR CAPTURING INFORMATION. THIS SYSTEM SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF HANDLING INFORMATION AS IT IS RECEI ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF AN OPTICAL FIBER DYNAMIC SURFACE GEOMETRY MEASUREMENT ARRAY

    SBC: Robert A Denton Inc            Topic: N/A

    DYNAMIC QUANTIFICATION OF THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL SURFACE GEOMETRY OF ANTHROPOMORPHIC TEST DEVICES CAN IMPROVE CURRENT INJURY ASSESSMENT CAPABILITIES. PRESENTLY, A CHEST BAND CONSISTING OF MANY STRAIN GAUGES MOUNTED IN A MEMBRANE ARRAY IS BEING USED TO MEASURE DEFORMATION OF THE TORSO. WHILE THIS TECHNIQUE PROVIDES REASONABLE DATA, IT INCREASES THE COSTOF DATA ACQUISITION AND THE TIME TO PERFORM THE ...

  9. DETECTION OF EXPLOSIVES VAPOR AT THE PPT LEVEL WITH A LASER INTERFEROMETRIC CALORIMETER

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1992 Department of Transportation
  10. A NOVEL MASS SPECTROMETER FOR THE DETECTION OF VAPORS FROM EXPLOSIVE, INCENDIARIES AND NOXIOUS GASES

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOUTHWEST SCIENCIES, INC. PROPOSES A NOVEL MASS SPECTROMETRIC METHOD, * IONIZATION ENERGY MODULATED MASS SPECTROMETRY (IEMMS), FOR THE RAPID DETECTION OF VAPORS FROM EXPLOSIVES, INCENDIARIES AND NOXIOUS GASES. IEMMS COMBINES ELECTRON IMPACT IONIZATION USING A MONOCHROMATIC ELECTRON BEAM WITH ION DETECTION USING TWIN TIME-OF-FLIGHT (TOF) MASS ANALYZERS. ONE ANALYZER QUANTIFIES POSITIVE IONS WHILE T ...
