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. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Mobile Mapping Corporation            Topic: AF112184

    ABSTRACT:Aviation near volcanic plumes is dangerous because aircraft engines can be damaged if they ingest airborne ash and aerosols.Knowing the forecast location of an ash plume will improve aviation safety while reducing engine maintenance costs.Ash forecast models are immature.To improve their accuracy we have conducted research with volcanologists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) re ...

  2. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Mobile Mapping Corporation            Topic: AF112184

    ABSTRACT: A refined volcanic plume model is proposed to evaluate improved forecasting of ash movement and dispersion. This refined model utilizes near real-time model calibration and validation, perspective satellite observation geometry, and future in-situ measurements for more accurate models and forecasts. BENEFIT: Aircraft safety utilizes coarse volcanic plume models and better models will ...

  3. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Polartronix            Topic: AF112184

    ABSTRACT: This proposal is to design an instrument that will detect and quantify volcanic ash hazards. A proof of concept model of the instrument will be constructed and tested. This instrument will measure overall density, particle size distribution and elemental composition. While the instrument in Phase 1 will not be certified to fly on a UAV, design elements will be incorporated for the goa ...

  4. FULLY AUTOMATIC CALIBRATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Dowland-bach Corp            Topic: N/A

    IT IS OUR INTENT TO PROVIDE A FULLY AUTOMATED, PORTABLE, SELFCONTAINED NBS TRACABLE CALIBRATION SYSTEM THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR THE VERIFIED CALIBRATION OF PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS, PRESSURE TRANSDUCERS, GAUGES, PRESSURE SWITCHES, AND OTHER PRESSURE INSTRUMENTS FROM VACUUM TO 10,000 PSIG. THIS INCLUDES THE NEW 'INTELLIGENT' PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS. ADDITIONALLY, THIS SYSTEM SHOULD HAVE AN ACCURACY OF +/0.0 ...
