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. Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection of Fastener Holes in Two-Layer Structures

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Nondestructive inspection is a key component of programs aimed at extending the service life of aging aircraft. One important capability is the detection of cracking and corrosion around fastener holes. In thick, multiple layer structures, there is oftenno solution but removal of the fasteners for inspection, a costly and potentially damaging process. Phased array ultrasonics offer a novel and ...

  2. Optimized Phased Array Hard Alpha Inclusion Detection in Castings

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Current manufacturing technology for cast titanium components cannot guarantee theabsence of hard alpha inclusions.Under the effect of fatigue, such inclusions become likely sites for structuralfailure. By performing nondestructive inspections on the manufactured parts usingphased array ultrasound, one can eliminate parts with the largest inclusions.Despite such quality control, undetected inclus ...

  3. Space-Flight Assessment of a Small-Scale Collins Type Cryocooler Concept

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "A compact, reliable, efficient and inexpensive cryocooler requiring less than 1kW of power for 2W of cooling at 10Kelvin is being developed and will be demonstrated. This performance is at least twice as efficient as the best current state-of-the-art forsmall low-temperature cryocoolers. The proposed technical approach, whose feasibility has been confirmed, is to apply the advantageous features ...

  4. New Method for Determination of Acoustic Signatures in Wind Tunnel Testing

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The acoustic signature generated by test articles in high speed wind tunnel tests is difficult to measure due to the high level of background noise created by the wind tunnel flow. A unique research program using microphone arrays is proposed to addressthis issue. The program combines experimental tests and analytical algorithm development to devise a system able to reject the undesirable wind tu ...

  5. High speed low loss optical switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This program addresses the development of a solid-state optical switching technology. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and high reliability. Sub-microsecond andmultiple-port fiber switches of low loss and low cost are long sought after performance attributes. This type of high performance optical switches is i ...
