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. Laser Refrigerator


    The advent of MEMS (micro electro-mechanical systems) was supposed to cause a market revolution with its breakthrough in miniaturization. In practice, this potential has not been realized chiefly due to the power limitations to which MEMS are subject. Onlyrelatively simple applications, e.g. in pressure sensing and optics, have been commercially developed. With the laser engine described in this P ...

  2. High-Efficiency, Large-Area Curved Diffraction Gratings for Remote Sensing Applications in the Infrared

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Infrared detection systems play a key role in national security, where they are used in aerial and satellite reconnaissance to identify potential targets and detect enemy weapons. While multispectral infrared imaging systems have greatly enhanced remotesensing capabilities, current systems have been optimized for the visible and shortwave infrared. Longwave infrared detection would also be of grea ...

  7. Innovative Operating Software

    SBC: CAPRARO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This effort examines the merit of using Semantic Web technology, as developed by the World Wide Web Consortium and DARPA, to reduce the time and money required by MDA to acquire and maintain software. MDA has a large collection of legacy software andalgorithms in a variety of programming languages. These same algorithms are useful throughout MDA, yet the cost of rewriting code is enormous. We prop ...

  10. Manufacturing Process for Polymer Precursors to Diamond and Diamond-Like Carbon

    SBC: CENYMER CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A critical problem facing the electronics industry is dissipation of thermal energy. Since diamond-like carbon (DLC) is an excellent thermal conductor and electrical insulator, it is ideal for use in electronics for heat dissipation. Many prototypes havebeen fabricated using DLC to verify the performance improvement it offers, but the costs and practical difficulties inherent in the fabrication of ...
