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. Vehicle Interior Noise Prediction Using Energy Finite Element Analysis

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: A204

    It is proposed to develop and implement a computational technique based on Energy Finite Element Analysis (EFEA) for interior noise prediction of advanced aerospace vehicles that will expand NASA's noise prediction capability at the early stage of design process. In many situations, aerospace structures are subjected to high frequency mechanical and/or acoustic excitations. Presently, noise perfor ...

  2. Electronic Correlated Noise Calibration Standard for Interferometric and Polarimetric Microwave Radiometers

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: E104

    A new type of calibration standard is proposed which produces a pair of microwave noise signals to aid in the characterization and calibration of correlating radiometers. The proposed Correlated Noise Calibration Standard (CNCS) is able to generate pairs of broad bandwidth stochastic noise signals with a wide variety of statistical properties. The CNCS can be used with synthetic aperture interfero ...

  3. A C-Band Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) Detection and Mitigation Testbed

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: E104

    Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) can render microwave radiometer measurements useless. We propose a method and an architecture that can be used to identify sources of RFI and be used to identify an optimal scheme for the mitigation of RFI. The system consists of a fully functional digital radiometer that can collect data in the field and pipe the pre-detected signal into, for example, a spectr ...

  4. CMOS-MEMS Microgravity Accelerometer with High-Precision DC Response

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: B101

    This Phase I SBIR effort initiates development of a high-sensitivity low-noise all-silicon CMOS-MEMS accelerometer for quasi-steady measurements of accelerations at sub 1 micro-g levels. The accelerometer module includes integrated low-noise CMOS circuitry with active offset and low-frequency noise cancellation to enable high-precision DC measurements. The high-performance of the sensor is enabl ...

  8. Broad Spectrum Sanitizing Wipes with Food Additives

    SBC: Microcide, Inc.            Topic: B304

    Microcide proposes to develop novel multipurpose non-toxic sanitizing wipes that are aqueous based, have shelf life of 3-5 years, have broad spectrum microbicidal activity, detergency for cleaning and chelating properties to bind toxic metal ions. The proposed wipes can eliminate undesirable characteristics of presently used commercial sanitizing wipes by NASA. The commercial sanitizing wipes use ...

  9. Low Noise PAV Ducted Propeller using Automotive Manufacturing

    SBC: Munro and Associates            Topic: T701

    Munro & Assoc. and MISATS (MU&M) recognize the explosive market pull for low cost airplanes, i.e. PAV, that provide affordable, comfortable and safe traveler. MU&M propose a revolutionary convergence in design integration for propulsor manufacturing technology as a decisive enabler for PAV. The critical target for a sub $100,000 PAV is a $10,000 propulsion system. Munro & Assoc.'s (Munro's) innova ...

  10. Three Dimensional Volumetric Terahertz Scanning for Aerospace Non Destructive Evaluation

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    NASA and the aerospace industry are beginning to utilize terahertz (THz) reflection imaging (for example, examining the space shuttle external tank sprayed on foam insulation for voids and disbonds). THz non destructive evaluation (NDE) imaging is widely applicable to composite resin, ceramic, plastic, natural, and other non-metallic materials. Current commercial equipment is capable of 2D raster ...
