Award List:

NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) Broadcast Simulator

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Viorel Olariu, Senior Design Engineer
Award Amount: $74,859.00
Abstract:
Complex and expensive instrumentation is currently required to test the NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) receivers because of their unique characteristics. There is a critical need for a small, portable, dedicated broadcast simulator specifically designed to evaluate NWR system performance. This SBIR Phase… More

Autonomous Nonbattery Wireless Strain Gage for Structural Health Testing and Monitoring in Extreme Environments

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: UCCS
Principal Investigator: Viorel Olariu, CTO
Award Amount: $99,979.00
RI Contact: Andrew D. Ketsdever
Abstract:
There is a need to monitor the structural health of aerospace components operating in extreme temperatures ranges (e.g. -60 to +300C) and with high accelerations. Ideally the sensors employed for this task should be passive (i.e. not powered through batteries), permanently placed on the critical… More

Distributed Wireless Sensor Network for Structural Health Monitoring of Ships

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Viorel Olariu, CTO
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Such Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems should be able to detect failures in their early stages so that the repairs would… More

Wireless Torque Sensor for Condition Based Maintenance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: UCCS
Principal Investigator: Viorel Olariu, CTO – (719) 502-1348
Award Amount: $149,999.00
RI Contact: Gwendolyn A. Logan Gennaro
Abstract:
In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Of particular importance is the condition based maintenance of Navy rotating machinery (motors, generators, pumps, gear systems,… More
