The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. N/A

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This subtopic solicited Phase I R&D for an advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) system that would provide fast-scanning high resolution (3 scans/sec at 1cm-1 resolution), low noise, mid-infrared measurements for characterization of spray flames. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) demonstrated FT-IR emission/transmission (E/T) measurements from the NIST spray combustion faci ...

  2. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  3. Advanced Rain and Dust Erosion Resistant Coating Systems

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Rain and dust erosions on aircraft forward facing surfaces such as leading edges, engine inlets, nose radomes, propeller blades, and antennas are serious problems. Due to increasing optical missile threats more low gloss rain erosion coatings are beingused. Current commercial lusterless gray rain erosion coating failed the rain test within 36 minutes when tested at 500mph under 1

  4. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...

  5. KW Class Fiber Lasers

    SBC: PC PHOTONICS            Topic: N/A

    The double-clad multicore fiber laser has proven to be the most efficient, optically-pumped laser. In Phase I, we have demonstated that phase-locking occurs spontaneously among a group of closely packed single mode fiber lasers configured isometrically ina common cladding. This result suggests that, by using our unique power combining technique developed at PC Photonics Corporation, high power o ...

  6. A COMPUTATIONAL MODEL FOR THE DISCHARGE PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY IN PLASMA PROCESSING

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMA PROCESSING HAS BECOME AN IMPORTANT TECHNIQUE IN SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE FABRICATION. IN ORDER TO IMPROVE PROCESS REPRODUCIBILITY AND DEVELOP PROCESS AND QUALITY CONTROL, THE GEC REFERENCE CELL HAS BEEN CHOSEN AT NIST AS THE EXPERIMENTAL STANDARD REACTOR WHICH IS DESIGNED TO ADVANCE THE NEXT GENERATION PLASMA PROCESSING EQUIPMENT. THE PROPOSED EFFORT ADDRESSES DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPREHENSIVEPRED ...

  7. PROCESS MONITORING AND CONTROL DURING PLASMA PROCESSING OF SEMICONDUCTORS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SUCCESSFUL PLASMA PROCESSING AND THE ELUCIDATION OF THE UNKNOWN PLASMACHEMISTRY REQUIRE SIMULTANEOUS KNOWLEDGE OF MANY PROCESS VARIABLES WITHIN THE PLASMA REACTOR. THESE VARIABLES INCLUDE 1) GAS TEMPERATURE AND COMPOSITION, 2) SUBSTRATE TEMPERATURE, AND 3) FILM THICKNESS, COMPOSITION, AND INDEX OF REFRACTION. THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO TECHNIQUES THAT CAN MONIOTR MORE THAN ONE OF THESE VARIABLES AT A ...

  8. SUPERIOR FIBER INSERTS FOR NUTS

    SBC: Memry Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A VARIETY OF POLYMERS ARE USED AS INSERTS IN NUTS TO PROVIDE RESISTANCE TO LOOSENING FROM VIBRATION AND SHOCK. FIBER REENFORCED RESINS FORMERLY USED HAVE GENERALLY BEEN REPLACED WITH POLYAMIDES (NYLON) AND POLYIMIDES. IT WOULD BE A LOGISTICS ADVANTAGE IF THESE PREVAILING TORQUE LOCK NUTS COULD BE REUSED AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN DEMATED FROM THEIR BOLT OR SHAFT DURING INSPECTION OR REPAIR PROCEDURES. A ...

  9. CATALYTIC INTEGRAL IGNITOR/INJECTOR FOR IMPROVED IGNITION/STABILITY AND ALTITUDE RELIGHT

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATING A CATALYTIC IGNITOR INTO AN AIR BLAST FUEL INJECTOR OFFERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE FLAME STABILITY AND ALTITUDE RELIGHT, AMONG OTHER ADVANTAGES. PREVIOUS WORK BY PRECISION COMBUSTION DEVELOPING A CATALYTIC GLOW PLUG HAS SHOWN THAT A CATALYTIC IGNITOR OFFERS SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVED IGNITION OVER CONVENTIONAL (NON-CATALYTIC) SURFACE IGNITION DEVICES. IN THIS PROJECT WE PRO ...
