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. EXPERT SYSTEM FOR IMPROVED MAINTENANCE AIDING

    SBC: Abaris            Topic: N/A

    REPAIR OF SHIPBOARD MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT REQUIRES INFORMATION AND EXPERTISE NOT EASILY AVAILABLE TO SHIPBOARD MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL. WHAT INFORMATION THAT IS AVAILABLE IS GENERALLY EMBEDDED IN TECHNICAL MANUALS OR MAINTENANCE/REPAIR CARDS THAT ARE DIFFICULT TO DECIPHER, BULKY, AND SOMETIMES HARD TO MAINTAIN. A SYSTEM THAT ALLOWED FOR IMPROVED MAINTENANCE AIDING AND GUIDANCE TO NON-EXPERTS WOULD ...

  4. A COMPACT ACCELERATOR-BASED NEUTRON SOURCE FOR BAGGAGE INTERROGATION

    SBC: Accsys Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF THERMAL NEUTRONS AS A TOOL FOR BAGGAGE INSPECTIONIS AN ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE, WITH A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM CURRENTLY BEING TESTED FOR AIRPORT FEASIBILITY AS AN EXPLOSIVE DETECTION DEVICE. THIS SYSTEM COULD POSSIBLY BE MODIFIED FOR INDIVIDUAL BAGGAGE IDENTIFICATION THROUGH THE USE OF IMAGING OR ACTIVATION DETECTION OF SUITABLE TAGS. HOWEVER, FEASIBILITY TESTING OF THIS CONCEPT AND THE COMMERC ...

  5. IMPROVEMENT OF SMALL SCALE TESTING FOR EXPLOSIVE SENSITIVITY

    SBC: 3c Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVES OF PHASE I ARE TO DETERMINE HOW WELL THE SMALL SCALE TESTS CURRENTLY USED FOR SCREENING EXPLOSIVES, AND THE MODELS THAT DESCRIBE EXPLOSIVE BEHAVIOR IN THE SMALL SCALE TEST AND IN THE FULL SCALE MUNITION, CAN PREDICT THRESHOLDS OF EXPLOSIVE REACTION IN THE OPERATIONAL FULL SCALE MUNITION. FULL SCALE MUNITIONS WILL BE STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE CRITICAL MODE(S) OF EXPLOSIVE REACTION THA ...

  6. UNIVERSAL END-EFFECTOR WITH TORQUE FEEDBACK FOR HAND VALVES

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL OFFERS TO DESIGN AND FABRICATE A UNIVERSAL END-EFFECTOR WHICH CAN PROVIDE TORQUE FEEDBACK WHILE OPENINGOR CLOSING VALVES. THE END-EFFECTOR WOULD BE ESPECIALLY USEFUL IN HAZARDOUS OR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS WHERE HUMAN PRESENCE IS PRECLUDED. THE DESIGN WILL BE A MODIFICATION OF A MACHINE RECENTLY INVENTED BY THE PROPOSING FIRM FOR THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY, WHICH CAPTURES TORQUE DATA D ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A SELF-RESTORING CHANNELIZING DEVICE

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE DETERIORATION OF THE U.S. HIGHWAY SYSTEM'S PAVEMENTS AND BRIDGES, CONSTRUCTION REHABILITATION HAS BECOME A LARGE SCALE EFFORT. ONE OF THE SAFEST AND MOST EFFICIENT TECHNIQUES FOR TRAFFIC CONTROL DURING REHABILITATION OF DIVIDED HIGHWAYS IS TWO-LANE TWO-WAY OPERATION (TLTWO). IN THIS TECHNIQUE, ONE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY IS CLOSED OFF FOR REPAIR WHILE THE OTHER IS PUT INTO TLTWO WITH CHANNE ...

  8. DIRECTED ENERGY SYSTEM POINTING THROUGH GEOSYNCRONOUS POSITIONING SATELLITE INTERFEROMETRY

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT STUDIES CONCENTRATE ON GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) AS A SPACECRAFT ATTITUDE DETERMINATION TOOL. TWO GPS ANTENNAS RECEIVING THE SAME SIGNAL CAN COMPARE THEIR RELATIVE PHASES TO DETERMINE THE ANGLE BETWEEN THE TWO ANTENNAS AND THE GPS SATELLITE. BY COMPUTING THE ANGLE TO THREE OR MORE SATELLITES, THE COMPLETE INERTIAL ORIENTATION MAY BE DETERMINED. APPLYING ADVANCES IN GPS INTERFEROMETRY ...

  9. SYNTHESIS OF ULTRAHIGH PURITY SUBMICRON BORON CARBIDE POWDERS

    SBC: ADVANCED REFRACTORY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MATERIALS FOR SPACECRAFT STRUCTURES ARE REQUIRED WHICH POSSESS HIGH STIFFNESS TO WEIGHT RATIOS, ALONG WITH CHEMICAL AND DIMENSIONAL STABILITY IN SPACE ENVIRONMENTS. B(4)C HAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST RATIOS AND CAN BE FABRICATED INTO DENSE BODIES. OPTIMAL COMPOMENT PERFORMANCE WILL LIKELY REQUIRED AN IMPROVED B(4)C POWDER WHICH IS NOT AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY NOW. A PROPRIETARY HIGH TEMPERATURE REACTOR HA ...

  10. ON-LINE PURIFIERS FOR CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION

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

    THE MATERIALS USED IN THIN-FILM PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS AND MANY OTHER SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES ARE FREQUENTLY GROWN USING CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) OR OTHER VAPOR-BASED PROCESSES. MANY OF THE PROCESS GASES USED, FOR EXAMPLE, ARSINE, PHOSPHINE, AMMONIA, DIBORANE, AND SILANE, ARE HIGHLY REACTIVE. CONTAMINATION, CHEMICAL OR PARTICULATE, OF THESE REACTIVE GASES SERIOUSLY INTERFERES WITH DEVICE PERFORMA ...
