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. APPLICATION SPECIFIC INTEGRATED CIRCUIT TO IMPROVE RELIABILITY AND POWER QUALITY AND TO REDUCE COST OF PCS CONTROL

    SBC: Abacus Controls, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POWER CONDITIONERS CURRENTLY IN USE IN PHOTOVOLTAIC COGENERATION INSTALLATIONS DO NOT USE LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION TECHNOLOGY. IT IS THE OBJECTIVE IN PHASE I TO RESEARCH THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPROVING THE ACCURACY, SPEED OF RESPONSE, AND THE RELIABILITY OF A POWER CONDITIONER BY UTILIZING A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE ASIC. MANUFACTURING COSTS WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED WITH THE ASIC IMPLEMENTED SAMPLE ...

  3. ADVANCED TELEROBOTICS CONCEPTS USING NEURAL NETWORKS

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE INTEND TO APPLY NEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGY TO TELEROBOTICS. THIS WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME OF THE ADVANCES THAT ARE BEING DONE FOR AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS. THESE CONCEPTS WILL EXTEND THE CAPABILITIES OF THE HUMAN OPERATOR. THE TELEROBOTIC CONTROLLER WILL BE TAUGHT USING BACKWARD SHAPING TO IMPROVE ITS SPEED OF LEARNING. IT IS PROPOSED TO ADD A CAPABILITY FOR ASSOCIATION BASED SENSOR DATA FUSION. THE ...

  4. NEURAL NETWORKS FOR AUTONOMOUS MOTOR CONTROL

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A ROBOTIC CONTROL SYSTEM WITH NEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGY WHICH CAN ADAPT TO VARIABLE PAYLOAD TRANSPORT CONDITIONS. TRADITIONAL TECHNOLOGIES HAVE DIFFICULTY PROVIDING ADAPTIVE AND AUTONOMOUS MOTOR CONTROL OR THE ABILITY TO GENERALIZE TO UNFORESEEN CONDITIONS. ADAPTIVE CONTROL IS NECESSARY BECAUSE THERE IS VARIATION OF COMPONENT MASSES AND INERTIA, DIRECTION OF GRAVITY AND LITTL ...

  5. EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES RESULTING IN LIGHTER AIRCRAFT WEIGHT INCREASED ENGINE PERFORMANCE (ISP) AND IMPROVED DESIGN TOOLS

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF USING NEURAL NETWORKS (NN) IN FAULT DETECTION AND ISOLATION (FDI) SYSTEMS. WE HOPE TO DEMONSTRATE THE APPLICABILITY OF NEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGIES AND ALGORITHMS FOR THE DESIGN OF IMPORTANT SUBSYSTEMS TO BE USED ON BOARD THE HIGH VISABILITY NASP OR X-30. THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MOST ADVANCED AVIONICS FOR USE IN THIS 21ST CENT ...

  6. LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE: A MANUAL FOR REGULATORS

    SBC: Actuarial Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PHASE I PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A MANUAL FOR THE FINANCIAL REGULATION OF LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE, COVERING THE FINANCIAL BASIS, POLICY PROVISIONS, REVIEW OF PREMIUM RATE FILINGS, CUMULATIVE LOSS RATIOS, RATE INCREASE REVIEWS, RESERVE STANDARDS, NONFORFEITURE PROVISIONS, AND SOLVENCY REQUIREMENTS. IN PHASE II, AN ACTUARIAL COMPUTER MODEL WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT STATES CAN USE TO DETERMINE CUMULAT ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH SENSITIVITY XENON LEAK DETECTOR

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RADIOISOTOPE THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS (RTGS) ARE COMMONLY USED AS POWER SOURCES FOR REMOTE ENVIRONMENTS. THESE UNITS USE XENON AS A HEAT TRANSFER AGENT. IT IS ALSO NECESSARY TO FILL THE RTGS WITH HELIUM TO A 5% CONCENTRATION LEVEL, SINCE THE HELIUM SERVES AS A LEAK DETECTION AGENT. HOWEVER, HELIUM ALSO CAUSES A 5% TO 10% DECREASE IN THE ELECTRICAL EFFICIENCY OF THE RTG. IT IS THEREFORE DESIRABLE ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTI-GAS PROCESS FOR HOT-GAS-STREAM CLEANUP

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC. PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A CONTINUOUS INSITU ANALYZER THAT IS CAPABLE OF MONITORING THE CONCENTRATION OF AMMONIA IN A COAL GASIFICATION GAS STREAM TO PROVIDE A PROCESS CONTROLLER FOR HOT GAS CLEANUP SYSTEMS. A PHOTODIODE ARRAY ULTRA VIOLET (UV) ABSORPTION SPECTROMETER WILL BE EVALUATED AT TEMPERATURES AND PRESSURES REPRESENTATIVE OF GASIFIER PROCESSES. THIS TECHNIQUE IS PRACTICAL ...

  9. ACCURATE PASSIVE RANGING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: ADCOM SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,INC.            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES ARE PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION IN A PHASE I EFFORT TO DETERMINE PASSIVE RF SURVEILLANCE AND TARGETING SENSORS AND ASSOCAITED METHODOLOGY FOR PERFORMING RAPID AND ACCURAGE MEASUREMENTS OF RANGE/LOCATION OF THREAT RF EMITTERS. THE ESSENTIAL PHYSICAL CONSTRAINTS TO BE OBSERVED ARE SENSOR COMPATIBILITY WITH, AND PORTABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATED RANGE DETERMINATION/PROCESSING EQUIPME ...

  10. A MULTILAYER MIRROR/MONOCHROMATOR FOR DUAL-ENERGY DIGITAL SUBTRACTION ANGIOGRAPHY

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

    CURRENT SYNCHROTRON-BASED MEDICAL IMAGING FACILITIES EMPLOY NARROW (.05 - 1%) BANDWIDTH MONOCHROMATORS TO PRODUCE MONOCHROMATIC SOURCES OF HARD X-RAYS FOR DUAL-ENERGY DIGITALSUBTRACTION ANGIOGRAPHY. WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE BANDWIDTH CAN BE INCREASED TO 5 TO 10% PROVIDED THAT THE TWO QUASIMONOCHROMATIC SOURCES ARE LOCATED AN APPROPRIATE DISTANCE IN ENERGY FROM THE IODINE K-EDGE. M ...
