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. WEIGHT, COMPACT SOLAR WATER DISTILLATION PURIFICATION DEVICE

    SBC: Abel Company            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY AND PRACTICALITY OF UTILIZING CHARCOAL CLOTH IN A LIGHT-WEIGHT SOLAR POWERED DISTILLATION PURIFICATION DEVICE INCORPORATING CHARCOAL CLOTH AS THE ENERGY ABSORBENT WATER WICK. IN THIS PROPOSED DEVICE, IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE CHARCOAL CLOTH WILL ACT NOT ONLY AS THE DISTILLATION MEDIA, BUT WILL ALSO REMOVE OBJECTIONABLE ODORS, CO-DISTILLABLE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS A ...

  2. TECHNOLOGY FOR PRESSURE-INSTRUMENTED THIN AIRFOIL MODELS

    SBC: Applied Cryogenics & Materials            Topic: N/A

    PRESSURE INSTRUMENTED AIRFOIL MODELS FOR TESTING IN CRYOGENIC WIND TUNNELS DEMAND THE SIMULTANEOUS ACHIEVEMENT OF MANY FACTORS INCLUDING STRENGTH, TOUGHNESS, DIMENSIONAL STABILITY, MACHINABILITY, BONDABILITY, ACCURACY OF PROFILE AND SURFACE FINISH. MANY PREVIOUS MODELS HAVE FAILED TO REACH COMPLETION OR HAVE PERFORMED INADEQUATELY BECAUSE ACHIEVEMENT OF SOME FACTORS HAS CRITICALLY COMPROMISED OTHE ...

  3. BROADBAND TRANSMITTING ANTENNA

    SBC: ASTRON WIRELESS TECHNOLIGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR HF BROADBAND TRANSMITTING ATENNA FOR COMMUNICATIONS AND JAMMING APPLICATIONS. THE MAJOR DISADVANTAGES OF PRESENT NARROW BAND ANTENNAS ARE: SLOW TUNING COUPLERS LIMIT JAMMING SYSTEM RESPONSE TIME AND OPERATIONAL BANDWIDTHS; TO ACHIEVE RESONABLE EFFICIENCIES LARGE ATENNA STRUCTURES ARE REQUIRED, ESPECIALLY AT THE LOWER FREQUENCIES; REQUIRE GOOD GROUND CONDUCTIVITY TO MAINTA ...

  4. ON-THE-BOTTOM SURVEILANCE BUOY

    SBC: Defense Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SONOBUOY ON THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN CAN ACHIEVE LONG DETECTION RANGES BY USE OF THE RELIABLE ACOUSTIC PATH (RAP). BY PUTTING AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL PROCESSOR IN THE BUOY TO DO SPECTRUM ANALYSIS AND CONTACT REPORT GENERATION, THE DATA TRANSMITTED TO SURVEILLANCE AIRCRAFT CAN BE REDUCED TO SHORT BURSTS ON A SCHEDULE THAT MEETS PATROL AIRCRAFT REVISIT REQUIREMENTS FOR INCREASED AIRCRAFT UTILIZATION AT ...

  5. ADVANCED UNDERSEA TACTICAL COMMUNICATIONS TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Defense Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN INCREASING NEED FOR LONG RANGE (200KM) APPROXIMATELY 10 BPS RATE ACOUSTIC COMMUNICATION AT LOW BIT ERROR RATES IN THE COMMAND AND CONTROL OF ACOUSTIC SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM ELEMENTS, UNDERWATER VEHICLES AND SENSORS. SIMULATED FISH NOISE, CODED TONE AND MULTITONE CW SIGNALS HAVE BEEN USED WITH VARYING SUCCESS. ONLY THE M-ARY, MULTITONE, LONG BAND LOW FREQUENCY WAVEFORMS ARE PRACTICAL FOR L ...

  6. RESEARCH ON THE FEASIBILITY OF A SELF-CUSTOMIZING AUTHORING SYSTEM FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION

    SBC: Education Turnkey Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH MARKET DEMAND IS HIGH AND THE POTENTIAL FOR LARGE COST SAVINGS EXIST, YOUR BOTTLENECKS TO USING MICROCOMPUTER ADMINISTRATIVE/IMS PACKAGES ARE: (A) THE INABILITY OF "CANNED" PACKAGES TO MEET SPECIFIC LEA NEEDS; AND (B) THE HIGH COST OF PACKAGES CUSTOMIZED BY DEVELOPERS TO MEET LEA NEEDS. USER-FRIENDLY MINI-AUTHORING PROGRAMS OFFER UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEA'S TO CUSTOMIZE GENERAL PACKAGE ...

  7. REFINEMENTS FOR EDDY CURRENT TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: N/A

    EDDY CURRENT FIELD INSPECTIONS ARE PRESENTLY PERFORMED BY TECHNICIANS WHO MUST EXAMINE AND EVALUATE THE OUTPUT OF EDDYCURRENT EQUIPMENT AND MANUALLY RECORD THE RESULTS OF SUCH INSPECTIONS. AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTING A DIGITAL SYSTEM WHICH AUTOMATES THIS PROCESSS IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY. THE SYSTEM IS BASED UPON A GENERAL PURPOSE, LOW-COST PERSONAL COMPUTER. IT AUT ...

  8. ADAPTIVE RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR ADVACED ELINT\ESM SYSTEMS

    SBC: Greenbriar Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES ELINT\ESM SIGINAL PROCESSING RESEARCH FOR REAL-TIME DETECTION IDENTIFICATION AND LOCATION OF THREAT RADAR EMITTERS ON THE BATTLEFIELD. GIVEN THE PREDICTED FUTURE GROWTH OF PULSE DENSITIES IN THE ELECTRONIC ENVIORNMENT, AND THE PROLIFERATION OF AGILE RADARS, IT IS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP MORE SOPHISTICATED ELINT\ESM SYSTEMS. AN ARCHITECTURE IS PRESENTED FOR A COMPUTER-BASED, AD ...

  9. AUTOMATION OF THE DETECTION OF DEFECTS IN THE HEAT-EXCHANGERTUBING OF NUCLEAR STEAM GENERATORS

    SBC: Greenbriar Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DETECTION OF DEFECTS IN THE HEAT EXCHANGER TUBING OF NUCLEAR STEAM GENERATORS IS CURRENTLY PERFORMED BY AN INSPECTION TEAM OF EXPERIENCED ANALYSTS USING A NUMBER OF VISUAL AND MANUAL OPERATIONS. THE PRESENT PROCEDURE REQUIRES CONSIDERABLE TIME AND EFFORT, AND IS SUBJECT TO THE UNCERTAINTIES OF HUMAN INTERPRETATION AND JUDGEMENT. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH PROJECT ARE TO EVALUATE ...

  10. PROCESS FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF 2,2', 4,4'-TETRAHYDROXY- BENZOPHENONE.

    SBC: Helix Associates Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A ONE STEP SYNTHESIS OF THE ABOVE COMPOUND FROM COMMERCIALLYAVAILABLE RESORCINOL AND RESORCYLIC ACID WILL BE INVESTIGATED USING HYDROGEN FLUORIDE, BORON TRIFLUORIDE, NAFION(R) RESINS, AND OTHER STRONG LEWIS ACIDS AS CATALYSTS.YIELDS WILL BE OPTIMIZED FOR THE PREFERRED SYSTEMS. A COST EFFECTIVE PURIFICATION TO A PRODUCT USUABLE IN THIN FILM SOLAR APPLICATION WILL BE WORKED OUT.
