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. NEW CONCEPTS AND INNOVATIONS TO ENHANCE THE COST ESTIMATION OF AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS/SUBSYSTEMS

    SBC: Abaris            Topic: N/A

    ABARIS PROPOSES AN EXPERT SYSTEM TO AID THE AVIATION PLANNER AND COST ESTIMATOR IN DEALING WITH THE IMPACT OF NEW MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE FOR THE DESIGN AND SUBSEQUENT MANUFACTURE OF NEW AIRCRAFT. THE NEW ADVANCED COMPOSITES; GRAPHITE AND KEVLAR FIBERS, EPOXY AND BISMALEIMIDE RESINS, ETC., OFFER SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT REDUCTIONS AND OTHER OPERATIONAL ADVANTAGES, BUT REQUIRE DIFFERENT DESIGN ...

  4. ALGORITHM FOR DETECTING SLOWLY MOVING TARGETS WITH SBR

    SBC: Adaptive Sensors Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPACE BASED RADARS WITH LENS OR REFLECTOR ANTENNAS CAN READILY PROVIDE MULTIPLE BEAM OUTPUTS. OTHER SBR DESIGNED TO DETECT AND TRACK AIRCRAFT, INCLUDING SYSTEMS WITH CORPORATE FED ARRAY ANTENNAS, MAY PROVIDE MONOPULSE SUM AND DIFFERENCE OUTPUTS FOR ANGLE MEASUREMENT. A METHOD IS DESCRIBED FOR EXPLOITING THESE MULTIPLE BEAM OR MONOPULSE ANTENNA OUTPUTS FOR THE DETECTION OF SLOW-MOVING TARGETS WITH ...

  5. THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL CHARACTERIZATION OF FIBER-MATRIX INTERFACE IN SIC REINFORCED GLASS CERAMICS

    SBC: ADTECH SYSTEMS RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH THE USE OF CERAMIC COMPOSITES IN AEROSPACE SYSTEMS IS MONOTONICALLY INCREASING, THERE ARE NOT MANY ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES REVEALING THE UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THESE MATERIALS CAN PROVIDE. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THESE MATERIALS HAVE GREAT PROMISE FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE STRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS INCLUDING HOT TURBINE ENGINE COMPONENTS. WHILE FEW FIBER REINFORCED CERAMIC SYSTEMS ARE CO ...

  6. A DIAMOND FILM PHOTOCONDUCTIVE POWER SWITCH

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    IN THE PAST DECADE, STUDIES HAVE INDICATED THAT IT IS THEORETICALLY POSSIBLE, IN A SINGLE OPTO-COUPLED SOLID STATE DEVICE, TO SWITCH HIGH VOLTAGES (100 KV/CM LENGTH) AND HIGH CURRENTS (10KA/CM WIDTH) WITH PHENOMENALLY FAST RURN-ON/TURN-OFF TIMES, MORE EFFICIENTLY AND COMPACTLY THAN USING EXISTING THERMIONIC OR PLASMA DEVICES. THE MOST HEAVILY STUDIED PHOTOCONDUCTORS FOR SWITCHING APPLICATIONS HAVE ...

  7. VERIFICATION AND VALIDATION OF AI SOFTWARE

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    NEW VERIFICATION AND VALIDATION (V&V) TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED FOR USE WITH AI SOFTWARE. FORTUNATELY, AI SYSTEMS HAVE SEVERAL FEATURES THAT CAN BE USED IN NEW WAYS TO SUPPORT VERIFICATION AND VALIDATION; IN PARTICULAR, AUTOMATIC REASONING ABOUT DECLARATIVE REPRESENTATION CAN CHECK FOR CONSISTENCY AND OTHER PROPERTIES OF RULES, REASONING ABOUT UNCERTAINTY CAN BE USED TO ACHIEVE ROBUTNESS IN THE FACE O ...

  8. KNOWLEDGE BASED DECISION ANALYTIC STRUCTURE FOR DECISION AIDING

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    COMPLEX AIR FORCE COMMAND AND CONTROL PROBLEMS REQUIRE ADVANCED DECISION AIDING TECHNOLOGY TO GUIDE THE USERS THROUGH PROBLEM FORMULATION, SOLUTION, AND EXPLANATION PROCESS. SUCH PROBLEM AREAS AS TARGET PRIORITIZATION, RESOURCE ASSIGNMENT, PATH PLANNING, ETC., DO NOT ALWAYS HAVE NEAT, EASILY DEFINABLE PROBLEM STRUCTURES. IN THE PAST, DECISION ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN APPLIED TO VARIOUS PROBLE ...

  9. 3-D TARGET MODELING REPRESENTATION AND PERCEPTION

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, CONSIDERABLE RESEARCH IN MACHINE VISION IS BEING DIRECTED TOWARD PROBLEMS IN PERCEPTUAL ORGANIZATION, WHICH INVOLVED HOW OBJECTS SUCH AS JUNCTIONS, LINES, AND REGIONS, EXTRACTED BY LOCAL PROCESSES, ARE COMBINED TO PRODUCE COHERENT PERCEPTIONS OF OBJECTS AND EVENTS. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP PERCEPTUAL ORGANIZATION AS A RECURSIVE ENERGY MINIMIZATION PROCESS USING A HOPFIELD NEURAL NETWORK AP ...
