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. ADVANCED FARE PAYMENT MEDIA

    SBC: Echelon Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF SMART CARDS FOR THE PUBLIC TRANSIT INDUSTRY HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED. THERE IS A PERCEPTION THAT SMART CARDS CAN BE USED TO REDUCE THE TOTAL TRANSACTIONCOSTS ASSOCIATED WITH FARE PAYMENT, TO IMPROVE SECURITY, REDUCE FRAUD AND IMPROVE SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND RIDERSHIP. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATENESS OF THESE CLAIMS; THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY R ...

  3. AUTOMATED TERCOM PLACEMENT AND EVALUATION

    SBC: Systems Control Technology,            Topic: N/A

    DETERMINING SITES TO BUILD NEW TERCOM MAPS HAVE PROVEN TO BE A VERY COMPLICATED AND TIME CONSUMING TASK, AS EVIDENCED IN BOTH SIOP CRUISE MISSILE PLANNING AND OPERATION DESERT STORM. THE CRUISE MISSILE PLANNER, WITH SOME DIFFICULTY, CAN DETERMINE NEEDED CANDIDATE TERCOM SITES, BUT ALL TOO OFTEN, BECAUSE OF INSUFFICIENT TERRAIN ROUGHNESS, THE DEFENSE MAPPING AGENCY (DMA) IS UNABLE TO CREATE A TERCO ...

  4. DETECTION OF EXPLOSIVES VAPOR AT THE PPT LEVEL WITH A LASER INTERFEROMETRIC CALORIMETER

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY (SRL) HAS DEMONSTRATED, UNDER FUNDING FROM SDIO, AN ULTRASENSITIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE REAL-TIME MEASUREMENT OF ABSORPTION DUE TO TRACE GASES IN THE ATMOSPHERE. THE SRL TECHNIQUE, CALLER LASER INTERFEROMETRIC CALORIMETRY (LIC) IS SIMILAR IN PRINCIPLE TO LASER OPTO-ACOUSTIC (LOA) SPECTROSCOPY WHICH HAS BEEN UTILIZED FOR OVER 15 YEARS TO DETECT TRACE CONCENTRATIONS OF VAPOR ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A DEPTH PROFILING METHOD FOR USE WITH A TOTAL REFLECTANCE X-RAY FLOURESCENCE SYSTEM

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX MATERIAL IS RAPIDLY BECOMING THE SOI MATERIAL OF CHOICE FOR MANY IC APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING RADIATION HARDENED. A CONSTANT THEME OF CONCERN THROUGHOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN THE METALLIC IMPURITY CONTENT IN THE MATERIAL. MAJOR EFFORTS HAVE ADDRESSED THE ELIMINATION OF THE METALLIC CONTAMINATION BY MODIFICATION OF THE IMPLANTATION EQUIPMENT USED TO FABRICATE SIMOX MATERIA ...

  6. HIGH FREQUENCY AIRBLAST PRESSURE SENSOR FOR UGT MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL INSTRUMENTATION FOR AIRBLAST PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS IN CAVITY SHOTS IS LIMITED IN RISE TIME CAPABILITY. THIS RESULTS IN THE INSTRUMENTATION PROVIDING AN INCORRECT INDICATION OF PEAK PRESSURE, WHICH CREATES DISTORTION IN GENERATED HEIGHT-OF-BURST CURVES. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FIBER OPTIC AIRBLAST PRESSURE SENSOR BASED ON THE PHOTOELASTIC EFFECT IS PROPOSED. THIS TECHNIQUE PROMISES TO PRO ...

  7. IMPROVEMENT IN THE GRAPHITE REFERENCE CELL FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FOR CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEMS TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN MITIGATING CORROSION WITHOUT CAUSING HYDROGEN EMBRITTLEMENT OF PRESTRESSING STEEL, THE AMOUNT OF POLARIZATION OF THE EMBEDDED STEEL MUST BE VERY ACCURATELY CONTROLLED. PRESENTLY AVAILABLE EMBEDDED REFERENCE ELECTRODES DO NOT HAVE THE LONG TERM STABILITY OR RELIABILITY RE@UIRED TO MONITOR AND CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF POLARIZATION WITH THE ACCURACY RE ...

  8. INSTRUMENT SUITE TO MEASURE SPACE & TIME RESOLVED XUV & X-RAYS FROM X-PINCHES

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DESIGN, BUILD AND TEST A NOVEL SUITE OF XUV AND X-RAY MEASURING INSTRUMENTS FOR RADIATION FROM X-PINCHES. THIS SUITE WILL OFFER SPACE AND TIME RESOLUTION AND COVER EMISSIONS OVER THE ENTIRE COURSE OF THE IMPLOSION, FROM XUV (100-500 EV) TO SFT X-RAYS (1-10KEV). THE SUITE CONSISTS OF AN X-RAY CRYSTAL SPECTROMETER, AN X-RAY PINHOLE CAMERA AND AN XUV PINHOLE CAMERA. THE BASIC DETECT ...

  9. ION BEAM DEPOSITED FERROELECTRIC MEMORY FILMS

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTER MEMORY ARRAYS ARE EXTREMELY VULNERABLE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC DISTURBANCES RESULTING FROM ACCIDENTAL OR HOSTILE ACTIONS. HARDENING AGAINST SUCH EFFECTS CAN BE IMPARTED EITHER BY ADDING EXTERNAL PROTECTION TO EXISTING SYSTEMS OR BY INCORPORATING SURVIVABILITY IN NEW DESIGNS. INHERENT HARDNESS CAN BE IMPARTED TO RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY ARRAYS BY USING THIN FILM FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS AS MEMORY EL ...

  10. MOLECULARLY ENGINEERED POLYMERS WITH HIGH DIELECTRIC STORAGE DENSITY AND A LARGE DIELECTRIC CONSTANT

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A SYNTHETIC PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO ENGINEER POLYMER MATERIALS THAT HAVE A HIGH DIELECTRIC STORAGE DENSITY, LARGE DIELECTRIC CONSTANT, LOW DIELECTRIC DISSIPATION, AND LIGHT WEIGHT FOR PULSE FORMING LINES FOR PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS. THE SYNTHETIC PROGRAM WAS DEVELOPED BY CONSIDERING MATERIAL GUIDELINES WHICH INCLUDE: 1) INTRINSIC DIELECTRIC STRENGTH; 2) DIELECTRIC CONSTANT; 3) LOW DISSIPATION FAC ...
