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. INVESTIGATION OF FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING IN DEFENSE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Computer Technology Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE DOD SOFTWARE INITIATIVE CLEARLY IDENTIFIED THE CHALLENGES FOR FUTURE SYSTEMS. THEY WILL HAVE TO BE LARGER AND MORE COMPLEX, DEVELOPED AND DELIVERED MORE RAPIDLY, AND MAINTAINED OVER LONGER PERIODS. TRADITIONAL PROGRAMMING TECHNIQUES, HOWEVER, APPEAR TO HAVE REACHED THEIR LIMITS, MAKING MUCH LARGER SOFTWARE SYSTEMS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO BUILD AND MAINTAIN. AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH, CALLED FUNC ...

  2. THE DESIGN OF A RAPID, INTELLIGENT PROTOTYPING LANQUAGE (RIPL)

    SBC: Computer Technology Associates            Topic: N/A

    DESIGN OF EFFECTIVE MAN-MACHINE INTERFACES (MMI) IS CRITICAL TO THE OPERATIONAL EFECTIVENESS OF INTERACTIVE COMPUTER SYSTEMS. UNFORTUNATELY, MMI DESIGN FLAWS USUALLY ARE NOT UNCOVERED UNTIL LATE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION PHASE WHEN THEIR CORRECTION IS VERY EXPENSIVE OR IMPOSSIBLE. RAPID PROTOTYPING TOOLS HAVE BEEN USE TO ALLEVIATE THESE PROBLEMS BY ALLOWING MMI DESIGNS TO BECOME VISIBLE AND MODIFIABLE ...

  3. ECHELLE GRATING-RULING

    SBC: Hyperfine Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ECHELLE SPECTROGRAPHS DESIGNED FOR THE VACUUM ULTRAVIOLET HAVE BEEN LIMITED IN THEIR USEFULNESS DUE TO LOW EFFICIENCY AND STRAYLIGHT OF THE ECHELLE GRATING. THIS PROJECT APPLIESNEW APPROACHES IN COATING TECHNOLOGY AS A MEANS TO PROVIDE IMPROVED DEVICES. THE R&D EFFORT INCLUDES THE STUDY OF VACUUM DEPOSITION CONDITIONS AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO THE RULEABILITY OF ECHELLE GROOVES. SEVERAL TEST COATI ...

  4. OF TEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY AND REFRACTIVE INDEX

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS PHASE I EFFORT WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF A PASSIVE REMOTE SENSING INFRARED DEVICE THAT ACCURATELY AND IN REAL-TIME PROFILES ATMOSPHERICTEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY, AND REFRACTIVE INDEX. THIS PROPOSED EFFORT IS A LOGICAL EXTENSION OF A PREVIOUSLY SUBMITTED THEORETICAL AND NUMERICAL ALGORITHM STUDY WITH THE ARMY RESEARCH OFFICE. SINCE THEIR CHARTER IS FOR BASIC THEORET ...

  5. AN INFRARED ABSORPTION HYGROMETER FOR USE IN PRIMARY COOLANTLOOPS OF GAS-COOLED NUCLEAR REACTORS

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE HAVE RECENTLY DEVELOPED AN INFRARED ABSORPTION OPTICAL HYGROMETER FOR USE IN THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE. IN THIS PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WE WILL NUMERICALLY AND EXPERIMENTALLY SHOW THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO ADAPT OUR EXISTING TECHNOLOGY TO MONITOR TRACE MOISTURE IN THE HIGH PRESSURE PRIMARY COOLANT LOOPS OF GAS-COOLED NUCLEAR REACTORS. POTENTIAL SENSOR ADVANTAGES INCLUDE FASTER RESPONSE, HIGHER SENSIT ...

  6. CONTROLLED SOLIDIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS ORGANIC WASTES WITH RECOVERY OF RECYCLABLE COMPONENTS

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TECHNOLOGY FOR SOLVENT RECOVERY AND RECYCLE OR FOR THE SOLIDIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS LIQUID ORGANIC WASTE CANNOT BE APPLIED TO ALL WASTE STREAMS. MATERIALS CONTAINING CORROSIVE, HIGHLY REACTIVE, OR ACIDIC COMPONENTS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE DISTILLATION/SEPARATION EQUIPMENT OF SOLVENT RECOVERY OPERATIONS. NOR ARE THESE MATERIALS OR THOSE WITH HIGHLY TOXIC AND/OR CORROSIVE VAPOR CONSTITUEN ...

  7. PURIFICATION OF A BACTERIAL PROTEASE INHIBITOR

    SBC: Corptech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS INTENDED TO DEVELOP A PROTEASE INHIBITOR THAT CAN BE SAFELY ADMINISTERED TO PATIENTS WHO HAVE ONGOING ELASTIN DESTRUCTION AS A MAJOR FEATURE OF THEIR DISEASE. SUCH DISEASES INCLUDE THOSE IN WHICH PHAGOCYTE ACTION (INFLAMMATION) HAS OCCURRED IN CONJUNCTION WITH CONNECTIVE TISSUE TARGETS. PROMINENT AMONG THESE DISEASES ARE PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA, PNEUMONIAS, ADULT RESPIRATORY DISTRESS S ...

  8. RELIABLE STRENGTH ASSESSMENT OF WOOD COMPOSITES

    SBC: Engineering Data Mgmt Inc.            Topic: N/A

    METHODS FOR RELIABLE ASSESSING THE STRENGTH OF WOOD COMPOSITES WILL BE DEVELOPED USING NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION PROCEDURES INVOLVING SPECTRAL ANALYSIS OF STRESSWAVE PARAMETERS. THESE PROCEDURES ARE BASED ON THE EXTENSION OF PREVIOUS RESEARCH ON NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF THE STRENGTH OF WOOD UTILITY POLES. THEY APPEAR TO OFFER CONSIDERABLE PROMISE AS RELIABLE STRENGTH PREDICTION METHODS FOR OTH ...

  9. NOVEL METHOD OF DENTAL ANESTHIA

    SBC: Hauser Laboratorytories            Topic: N/A

    SELECTIVE APPLIATION OF TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRICAL NERVE STIMULATION (TENS) FOR PAIN CONTROL HOLDS PROMISE IN THE AREA OF DENTAL ANESTHESIA. APPLICATION OF A NOVEL CARBON FIBER ELECTRODE WITH A SOPHISTICATED YET SIMPLE CONTROL UNIT, WILL LEAD TO AFFECTIVE PAIN CONTROL IN DENTAL APPLICATIONS. MECHANICAL AND ADHESIVE ELECTRODE ATTACHMENT TECHIQUES WILL BE INVESTIGATED. A NEW POLYACRYLAMIDE\SILICONE P ...

  10. DURABLE INFRARED HUMIDITY SENSOR FOR SHIPBOARD

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE HAVE RECENTLY DEVELOPED A DURABLE INFRARED OPTICAL HUMIDITY SENSOR FOR AIRBORNE IN-CLOUD USE. WE ARE CURRENTLY ADAPTING THIS SENSOR FOR USE IN THE EXTREME PRESSURES AND TEMPERATURES OF PRIMARY COOLANT LOOPS OF GAS-COOLED NUCLEAR REACTORS. IN THIS PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WE WILL THEORETICALLY AND EXPERIMENTALLY SHOW THAT IT IS FEASIBLE TO ADOAPT OUR EXISTING NON-CONTACT MOISTURE SENSING TENCHNOL ...
