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. 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 ...

  2. DESIGN OF COMPONENTS FOR AN AMPERE INTENSITY, MEV ENERGY, DC ELECTRON BEAM SYSTEM

    SBC: National Electrostatics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NATIONAL ELECTROSTATICS CORPORATION (NEC) PROPOSES TO DESIGNCRITICAL COMPONENTS, AND INVESTIGATE REQUIRED ION OPTICAL ELEMENTS FOR A 3 MEV, 2-5 AMP DC ELECTRON BEAM. SUCH A SYSTEM WOULD BE BASED ON A VERTICAL TEST PELLETRON ACCELERATOR OF THE VAN DE GRAAFF TYPE OWNED AND OPERATED BY NEC. IN THIS CONCEPT AN ELECTRON BEAM PRODUCED IN THE HIGH VOLTAGE TERMINAL OF THE PELLETRON ACCELERATOR WILL BE ACC ...

  4. OPTRODE MEASUREMENT OF RELATIVE HUMIDITY USING ROOM TEMPERATURE PHOSPHORESCENCE QUENCHING

    SBC: Abel Company            Topic: N/A

    QUENCHING OF ROOM-TEMPERATURE PHOSPHORESCENCE OF LUMINESCENT COMPOUNDS IMMOBILIZED ON OR IN SUITABLE THIN- FILM MATRICES IS PLANNED AS A METHOD FOR MEASURING RELATIVE HUMIDITY. COMBINED WITH FIBER OPTICS TECHNOLOGY THIS APPROACH APPEARS TO HAVE THE CAPABILTY OF MEASURING RELATIVE HUMIDITY. COMBINED WITH FIBER OPTICS TECHNOLOGY THIS APPROACH APPEARS TO HAVE THE CAPABILITY OF MEASURING AND/OR MONITO ...

  5. AN INVESTIGATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE COLLECTIVE INTERACTION KLYSTRON

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    AN EXPERIMENTAL, THEORETICAL, AND NUMERICAL PROGRAM IS PLANNED TO DEVELOP AND STUDY A NOVEL, HIGH-POWER MICROWAVE SOURCE, THE COLLECTIVE INTERACTION KLYSTRON (CIK). THIS DEVICE PROMISES TO BE A HIGHLY EFFICIENT, COMPACT SOURCE IN THE 1- TO 10-GHZ RANGE, AND ALTERNATE CONFIGURATIONS THAT EXTEND THE OPERATION TO HIGHER FREQUENCIES ARE POSSIBLE. LINEAR THEORY PREDICTS VERY HIGH GROWTH RATES AND STRON ...

  6. A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR A 5-MW, 300-GHZ QUASI-OPTICAL GYROTRON

    SBC: PHYRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH POWER, CW (CONTINUOUS WAVE) SOURCES AT FREQUENCIES NEAR 300 GHZ ARE NEEDED FOR ELECTRON CYCLOTRON HEATING IN ADVANCED MAGNETIC FUSION DEVICES SUCH AS THE CIT (COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK). RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN GYROTRONS HAVE PUSHED THE STATE OF THE ART TO 100 KW CW AT 140 GHZ. ONE MEGAWATT AT 140 GHZ APPEARS FEASIBLE, BUT NEARTO THE LIMIT OF THE CURRENT FORM OF THE GYROTRON. THE QUASI-OPTICAL ...

  7. A SYNTHETIC BEAM SONAR SYSTEM FOR MOBILE ROBOTS AND TELEOPERATORS

    SBC: Cybermation Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE POTENTIAL OF ULTRASONIC RANGING HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED BY MOST MOBILE ROBOTICS RESEARCHERS. VARIOUS NARROW BEAM SYSTEMS) WERE USED ON EARLY MOBILE ROBOT TEST BEDS. THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THESE SYSTEMS INCLUDE SLOW ACQUISITION SPEEDS, LOST SIGNALS FROM SPECULAR REFLECTIONS, AND INADEQUATE IMMUNITY FROM NOISE. THE FIRST COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE BROAD BEAM ULTRASONIC SYSTEM FOR MOBILE ROBOTS WASRECENTLY ...

  8. A HIGH POWER MICROWAVE AMPLIFIER BASED ON TRANSVERSE MODULATION

    SBC: FM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    A MICROWAVE AMPLIFIER IS PLANNED THAT SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF PEAK POWER OF UP TO SEVERAL HUNDRED MEGAWATTS AT HIGH EFFICIENCY AS WELL AS CONTINUOUS POWER AT LOWER LEVELS. THECONCEPT IS BASED ON TRANSVERSE MICROWAVE MODULATION OF A HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRON BEAM COMBINED WITH A BENDING MAGNET TO PRODUCE AXIAL BUNCHING IN AN OUTPUT CAVITY. THE MECHANISM AVOIDS THE DIFFICULTY OF LONGITUDINAL BUNCHING AT RE ...

  9. THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF AN ELECTRON BEAM DEFLECTION DIAGNOSTIC TOOL

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL ANALYZE AND DEMONSTRATE A NEW ELECTRON BEAM DIAGNOSTIC TOOL BASED ON THE DEFLECTION OF TEST ELECTRONS BY THE ACCELERATED BEAM. A TIGHTLY FOCUSED STREAM OF TEST ELECTRONS IS INJECTED ACROSS THE PATH OF THE BEAM TO BE DIAGNOSED. THE TEST ELECTRONS ARE DEFLECTED IN A MEASURABLE WAY BY THE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS OF THE BEAM UNDER TEST, AND THE DIRECTION AND MAGNITUDE OF THE ...
