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. A CAD-NDE Translator (CADNET) for the Ultrasonic Inspection of Contoured Ceramic Gas Turbine Components

    SBC: KARTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    The automated inspection of gas turbine components has proven to be difficult due to their complex geometry. While ultrasonics has demomstrated excellent capabilities in detecting and characterizing the erosion and corrosion on turbine components from the hot effluent gases, it's application details laborious alignment procedures for the ultrasonic transducer during inspection. The need for automa ...

  3. A Novel Hypervelocity Flight Test Capability

    SBC: Trymer Company            Topic: N/A

    An important aspect in the design of aircraft structure and aeropropulsion components made of high temperature composite materials is damage tolerance and life prediction. Many components contain joints between co posites and metals. There is a need to develop methods for predicting life of such components and then implementing the methods ina software for design calculations on computers. The pro ...

  4. A Potentially Simple Pathway to Cubane and Its Derivatives

    SBC: P. Nicholas Lawrence            Topic: N/A

    Current methods of cubane synthesis attempt to produce cubane by direct synthesis through irreversible chemical reactions. The presence of so many highly strained rings in cubane complicates this method. We propose an alternative method to the production of cubane that takes advantage of its unusual physical properties. If our method works, we will detect cubane in small amounts in the Phase I eff ...

  5. A Propensity Score Model of Costs and Benefits Related to Army Service

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A major obstacle to the establishment and measurement of valid cause and effect relationships between Army service and the costs and benefits of such service is the impossibility of performing experiments with random assignment of individuals to service and non-service groups. A recent innovation in statistical theory, propensity score methodology, allows one to draw from an observational (or retr ...

  7. Accelerated Reliability Testing for Environmental Control Systems

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

    Reliability and lifetime performance data for environemntal control systems (ECS) is limited. Real-time tests require 5-15 years, and results often apply only to obsolete technology. Accelerated life testing (ALT) is a means by which reliability data may be obtained quickly and at a reasonable cost. A primary difficulty with ALT of ECS units is that typical service conditions impose multiple stres ...

  8. Affordable High-field Spacers For Field Emitter Displays

    SBC: SI Diamond Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    Field Emitter Displays (FEDs) represent the "leap frog" technology which can rebuild America's dominance in the information display industry. This represents simultaneously a critical technology area for Defense and a multi-billion dollar market opportunity. Basic technology feasibility for FEDs has been amply demonstrated already. The remaining questions are those of engineering and economics. Im ...

  9. AN EFFICIENT HYBRID GRID SCHEME FOR CALCULATION OF VISCOUS FLOWS

    SBC: Mda Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A HYBRID GRID SCHEME WHICH UTILIZES AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED STRUCTURED MESHES GLUED TOGETHER BY UNSTRUCTURED MESHES IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT. THE HYBRID METHOD PROMISES TO COMBINE THE EASE AND LOW MAN-HOUR REQUIREMENT FOR THE GENERATION OF UNSTRUCTURED MESHES WITH THE EFFICIENCY OF THE VISCOUS FLOW SOLVER ON STRUCTURED MESHES. THUS THE HYBRID SCHEME WILL COMBINE THE ADVANTAGES OF THE TWO IHESHE ...

  10. An Extended Ada Runtime Environment for Distributed, Fault Tolerant Applications

    SBC: Sbs Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In response to ever-increasing requirements, next-generation embedded systems will typically consist of several physically dispersed uniprocessor or multiprocessor nodes. In order to harness the potential of such architectures, a definition of distributed, fault-tolerant Ada must exist. Because the language standard does not meaningfully address distribution or fault tolerance, an extension of the ...
