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. 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. JOINED WING AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Aca Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE JOINED WING IS A NEW TYPE OF AIRCRAFT CONFIGURATION WHICH EMPLOYS TANDEM WINGS ARRANGED TO FORM DIAMOND SHAPES IN BOTH PLAN AND FRONT VIEWS. WIND TUNNEL TESTS AND FINITE- ELEMENT STRUCTURAL ANALYSES SHOW THAT THE JOINED WING PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES OVER A COMPARABLE CONVENTIONAL WING: LIGHTER WEIGHT AND HIGHER STIFFNESS, LESSINDUCED DRAG, LOWER WAVE DRAG, HIGHER TRIMMED MAXIMUM LIFT ...

  3. AUTOMATIC CONTAMINATION EVALUATOR FOR OPTICAL SURFACES

    SBC: Acton Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT SHUTTLE FLIGHTS HAVE SHOWN THAT SIGNIFICANT TEMPORARYOR PERMANENT DEGRADATION OF OPTICAL SURFACES CAN OCCUR IN FLIGHT. SEVERAL OSMIUM-COATED SAMPLES, FLOWN ON SHUTTLE FLIGHT STS 5, EXPERIENCED A PERMANENT LOSS OF REFLECTIVITY BY FACTORS OF 2-3 IN THE VACUUM ULTRAVIOLET PORTION OF THE SPECTRUM. OTHER COATING MATERIALS AND WINDOWS CARRIED ABOARD EARLIER SHUTTLE FLIGHTS SUFFERED LESS OR EVEN N ...

  4. TRACKING PROGRESSIVE FRACTURE\TOWARDS RETIREMENT FOR CAUSE

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    ONE OF THE MOST COMMON PROBLEMS IN THE FIELDS OF SYSTEM DYNAMICS AND PATTERN RECOGNITION IS THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF A SYSTEM ARE KNOWN THAN AN ACCURATE MATHERMATICAL MODEL COULD BE CONSTRUCTED AND A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE BEHAVIOR OF THE SYSTEM COULD BE DEVELOPED. THIS WOULD HELP IMPROVE ITS DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE, MADE ITS IDENTIFICATION EASIER, FACILITATE INSPEC ...

  5. EXPERIMENTS AND MODELING OF MULTI-COMPONENT FUEL BEHAVIOR COMBUSTION

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

    TO SATISFY AIR FORCE REQUIREMENTS TO IMPROVE AVIATION REACTIVE ATMOSPHERES IN A UNIQUE, CONTRACTOR-OWNED ENTRAINED FLOW REACTOR WITH ON-LINE, IN-SITU ANALYSIS OF VOLATILE SPECIES, TEMPERATURE AND RADIATION ABSORPTION CHARACTERISTICS BY FOURTER TRANSFORM INFRARED (FT-IR) SPECTROSCOPY. THESE DATA WILL BE USED TO EVALUATE THE APPLICATION OF EXISTING CONTRACTOR-DEVELOPED MODELS OF VAPORIZATION, PYROLY ...

  6. ELIMINATION OF EXCESSIVE SURFACE DEFECTS IN GAAS IC MATERIALUSING NON-CONTACT POLISHING

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE EXTENSION OF A NON-CONTACT POLISHING TECHNIQUE PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED FOR IT-VI COMPOUNDS, IS PROPOSED FOR (100) GAAS WAFERS INTEGRATED CIRCUIT APPLICATIONS IN MIND. AN INITIAL TASK WILL BE TO CHARACTERIZE SUCH NON-CONTACT POLISHED SURFACES AND COMPARE THEM WITH CONVENTIONALLY POLISHED SURFACES. FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL DEVELOPMENT OF THE TECHNIQUE, WE WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF SCALE-UP FO ...

  7. RAYLEIGH SCATTERING AS A HIGH TEMPERATURE COMBUSTION DIAGNOSTIC METHOD

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT EVALUATES THE USE OF RAYLEIGH SCATTERING TECHNIQUES FOR USE AS A TEMPERATURE MONITOR IN THE SEVERE ENVIRONMENT OF GAS TURBINES. POTENTIAL ADVANTAGES OF THIS TECHNIQUE OVER ALL OTHER PRESENTLY USED METHODS ARE HIGH ACCURACY (+/-10K), EASE OF INSTALLATION, HIGH SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL RESOLUTION, AND NONINTRUSIVE OPERATION. THIS PHASEOF THE PROGRAM CONSISTS OF DETAILED FEASIBILITY CALCULAT ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR PREDICTING THE PERCENTAGE FATIGUE LIFE INCREASE RESULTING FROM SHOT PEENED COMPONENTS

    SBC: Airtech Precision Shot            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT SHOT PEENING TECHNOLOGY DOES NOT OFFER THE CAPABILITY TO ACCURATELY PREDICT FATIGUE LIFE BENIFITS. RECENT TEST RESULTS IDENTIFY A HERETOFORE UNDOCUMENTED SURFACE INTEGRITY PHENOMENOM ASSOCIATED WITH PEENING AT RELATIVELY HIGH INTENSITIES WHICH HAS BEEN LINKED TO PREMATURE SPECIMEN FAILURE AT SPECIMEN FAILURE AT FATIGUE LIFE LOWER THAN THAT OF UNPEENED SPECIMEN. DATA PRESENTED BY SEVERAL AU ...

  9. TERRAIN HAZARD DETECTOR SENSOR

    SBC: A.k. Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THE TERRAIN HAZARD DETECTION SENSOR MEASURES THE CONTOUR OF THE TERRAIN IN FRONT OF A MOVING VEHICLE PROVIDING INFORMATION ABOUT TERRAIN SLOPE. IT MEASURES THE SIZE OF OBJECTS IN THE VEHICLE PATH AND ISSUES COMMANDS TO THE VEHICLE WHEN THE OBJECT IS TOO LARGE FOR THE VEHICLE TO PASS OVER AND ALSO MEASURES SIZES OF HOLES AND DITCHES IN THE VEHICLE PATH TO INSURE THAT THE VEHICLE CAN SAFELY PASS OVE ...

  10. LONG LIFETIME, SPACEBORNE, CLOSED-CYCLE CRYOCOOLER

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES A CONCEPT FOR A CONTINUOUS REFRIGERATOR FOR OPERATION IN ZERO-GRAVITY WHILE COOLING SENSORS TO A TEMPERATURE DOWN TO 0.3 KELVIN. NO CAPABILITY SUCH AS THIS CURRENTLY EXISTS. THE CONCEPT ASSUMES A SUPERFLUID HELIUM DEWAR (1.5 KELVIN) AS THE HIGH-TEMPERATUREHEAT SINK. A SUPERFLUID HELIUM-4 STAGE, CALLED A "VORTEX" REFRIGERATOR, SERVES AS AN INTERMEDIATE COOLING SYSTEM TO IN ...
