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. ELECTROMAGNETIC DETECTION OF BURIED MINES USING A SUPERCONDUCTIVE MAGENETIC GRADIOMETER

    SBC: Physical Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    MINES BURIED IN THE SEA BOTTOM ARE OFTEN IMPOSSIBLE TO DETECT ACOUSTICALLY. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY PROVIDES AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF DETECTION. AN ACTIVE SYSTEM FORMED BY A SOURCE CURRENT ENCIRCLING A SUPERCONDUCTIVE MAGNETIC GRADIOMETER HOLDS THE PROMISE OF PROVIDING AN UNDERWATER-TOWED SYSTEM FOR DETECTING BURIED MINES ELECTROMAGNETICALLY. THE SOURCE CAN OPERATE AT FREQUENCIES OF A FEW TENS OF HE ...

  2. A PORTABLE OXYGEN CONCENTRATOR FOR EMERGENCY USE

    SBC: Maxdem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE MAXDEM OXYGEN PUMP IS A NOVEL ELECTROCHEMICAL PROCESS FOR CONCENTRATING OXYGEN FROM AIR. IT IS RADICALLY DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER MEANS OF OBTAINING PURE OXYGEN. THE OXYGEN PUMP IS EXTREMELY SIMPLE IN CONCEPT. EXCEPT FOR A SMALL FAN TO CIRCULATE AIR, THERE ARE NO MOVING PARTS, PROVIDING FOR QUIET OPERATION. THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR CONCENTRATING OXYGEN IS PROJECTED TO BE 4-5 TIMES MORE EFFICIEN ...

  3. NAVAL AIRCRAFT REFUELING ALTERNATIVES

    SBC: DCS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT IS TO PRESENT TO THE NAVY DETAILED CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT AND ANALYSES OF ALTERNATIVE IN-FLIGHT REFUELING CONCEPTS. THESE RESULTS WILL FACILITATE THE DETERMINATION BY THE NAVY OF WHICH CONCEPTS WARRANT FURTHER INVESTIGATION OR DEVELOPMENT QUESTIONS THAT WILL BE ANSWERED IN THE ANALYSES INCLUDE: (1) IS THE COMPLETE SYSTEM TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE? (2) IS THE ...

  4. LIMITER FOR NAVAL SHIPBOARD ELECTRONIC POWER (RAP-088)

    SBC: MISSION MEDICAL            Topic: N/A

    AN EMISSION-CONTROLLED DEVICE FOR LIMITING TERMINATING CURRENT IN UTILITY POWER LINE TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION NETWORKS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AND DEMONSTRATED EXPERINMENTALLY BY RASOR ASSOCIATES THROUGH FUNDING BY THE ELECTRIC POWER RESEARCH INSTITUTE. BECAUSE OF ITS AUTOMATIC INSTANTANEOUS RESPONSE TO LIMIT CURRENT SURGES AND OVERLOADS, AND BECAUSE IT MAKES POSSIBLE THE USE OF SIMPLE MICHANCIAL ...

  5. ADHESIVE SYSTEMS FOR RUBBER-TO-METAL BONDS

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO THE NAVY'S NEED FOR NON-PROPRIETARY BONDING SYSTEMS FOR NEOPRENE-TO-METAL VULCANIZED BONDS. THE APPROACH OFFERED IS TO BEGIN WITH THE CHEMLOC 205/220 AND OTHER EXISTING PROPRIETARY AND NON-PROPRIETARY FORMULATIONS, TO ESTABLISH THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CERTAIN MODIFICATIONS THEREOF TO IMPROVE CATHODIC DELAMINATION RESISTANCE. THE MODIFICATIONS PROPOSED INCLUDE ADDITIONSOF REA ...

  6. A TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY STUDY APPLICABLE TO GENERAL PURPOSE AUTOMATIC PULSE MEASUREMENT

    SBC: Systems For Automatic Test            Topic: N/A

    PRECISE CHARACTERRIZATION OF THE PULSED RF SIGNAL RESPONSE OF A MODULE IS OFTEN NECESSARY TO ENSURE ITS PERFORMANCE IN A SYSTEM. SOME SYSTEMS REQUIRE THAT MANY MODULES OF A TYPE BE ACCURATELY CHARACTERIZED IN GAIN AND PHASE RESPONSE OVER A RANGE OF FREQUENCY AND SIGNAL LEVELS. A APPROACH TO ACCURATELY MEASURING THESE PARAMETERS USING CURRENTLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTS UNDER COMPUTER CONTROL IS DESCRI ...

  8. DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING PLAN FOR A COMPOSITE LOW ALTITUDE DISPENSER (LAD)

    SBC: Advanced Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    COMPOSITE MATERIALS SUCH AS GRAPHIT/EPOXY AND KEVLAR/EPOXY OFFER THE POTENTIAL TO REDUCE WEIGHT, RADAR CROSS SECTION (RCS), AND MANUFACTURED COSTS IN FLIGHT VEHCILE STRUCTURES. THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO APPLY THESE BENEFITS TO AFAL'S LOW ALTITUDE DISPENSER (LAD). AT THE SAME TIME THE CURRENT 11" PAYLOAD BAY WOULD BE INCREASED TO 12" TO INCREASE PAYLOAD VOLUME AND EFFICIENT MUNITIONS PACKING. AFT ...

  9. CORRELATION

    SBC: Computer Cognition            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTER COGNITION HAS DESIGNED THE FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF A KNOWLEDGE-BASED COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM CAPABLE OF HIGH- LEVEL ANALYSIS AND INFERENCE GENERATION FROM INCOMMING PREPROCESSES SENSOR DATA OF UNKNOWN OBJECTS. TO MEET THE HIGH PERFORMANCE DEMANDS OF SUCH A KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEM, ANEW COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE HAS BEEN DESIGNED WHICH TAKES ADVANTAGE OF EMERGING COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY SUCH AS OPTI ...

  10. LOCATING DEEPLY BURIED ORDNANCE

    SBC: Quantum Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTICALLY PUMPED MAGNETIC DETECTORS ARE CURRENTLY USED IN MILITARY APPLICATIONS TO DETECT BURIED ORDANANCE AND UNDERWATER MINES, BUT EXISTING INSTRUMENTS HAVE LIMITED SENSITIVITY. DR WILLIAM HAPPER HAS SUGGESTED THAT OPTICALLY PUMPED SENSORS CAN BE DRAMATICALLY IMPROVED AND MIGHT ULTIMATELY PROVIDE A SENSITIVITY COMPARABLE TO TO THAT OF SUPERCONDUCTING GRADIOMETERS. IN THIS PROPOSAL WE OUTLINE PRE ...
