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. Long Term Behavior, Failure Analysis & In-Service Testing of Composite Cylinders

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: 101PH1

    TRI proposes to develop reliable methodology and protocols for in-service inspection,recertifying and retiring DOT COPVs to maximize service life while ensuring personnel safety. This method must be sufficiently robust to prevent in-service failures, while being straightforward and affordable enough to be conducted at cylinder recertification facilities. To accomplish this with a high degree of co ...

  2. Development of a non-destructive, quantitative residual stress assessment tool

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    A nondestructive tool will be developed to quatitatively assess residual stress in pipelines from the exterior and through coatings. Residual stress is a critical factor that determines the cracking susceptibility of pipeline steels, but existing methods for measuring mechanical damage in pipeline steels are incapable of quantifying the residual stress levels. A larger gouge or dent does not nec ...

  3. A Nanocomposite, Regenerable, High Capacity CO2 Sorbent

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SOCOM10002

    SOCOM is seeking an innovative solution for a simpler, high capacity scrubber to reduce the levels of CO2 in underwater breathing apparatus and re-breathers. Existing CO2 scrubbers are absorbent based and suffer from slow reaction rates under pressure, at colder temperatures, and under heavy breathing, as well as limited CO2 capacity and the dangers of a caustic cocktail if the scrubber floods. ...

  4. Microwave measurement of rail distance traveled

    SBC: SYSTEMS & MATERIALS RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 081FR3

    Rail vehicle distance traveled measurements don't currently meet the precision requirement of 5ft./mile.  An innovative microwave technique is proposed using two X band transceiver assemblies separated by a known distance.  Reflected energy from metal objects such as tie-plates or dielectric contrast between ties and rail bed are used as replicate pairs to measure the time passage betwee ...

  5. Miniature Netted Sensors

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06015

    Williams-Pyro is developing an AccuTag Miniature Surveillance and Tracking System (Accu-MiSTS). Accu-MiSTS employs cluster management techniques and ad-hoc networking to provide a readily scalable architecture with which to perform comprehensive surveillance. A cluster comprises one supernode and up to 65,536 nodes, all of which are within the communication range of at least one other node. The Ac ...

  6. Enhancing the Usability of an Intersection Collision Avoidance Simulation Method

    SBC: Rioux Engineering            Topic: 03FH2

    The TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic is a high-quality single-intersection microscopic traffic simulation model developed at The University of Texas at Austin. It analyzes in sub microscopic detail the behavior of driver-vehicle units as they go through an intersection and intermix with other traffic flows. It has detailed intersection geometry, path following, microscopic car following, lan ...

  7. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  8. Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance

    SBC: dNovus RDI            Topic: SOCOM07003

    The need to identify and track vehicles by US Special Operations Forces has never been more acute because of the engagements in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Global War on Terror. Such capability is needed both for planning and conducting operations involving Special Forces. Special operations forces are carry out a wide variety of intelligence gathering missions which require vehicle identification ...

  10. Pipeline Integrity Process Management/Audit System

    SBC: AECsoft USA Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As the OPS performs audits of the pipeline operators, pursuant to the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of 2002 and Sub-part O of the newly released 49 CFR 192, the focus is no longer on the existence of a plan, rather, it is on the existence of a process, the completion of tasks defined within those processes and the documentation that supports and/or defines the decisions associated with said acti ...
