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. Seat/Bolster/Other

    SBC: ACTIVE SHOCK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A shock mitigating suspended seat, which places the Special Forces Operator in an optimal ergonomic position, will be developed for use in the NSW 11M RIB. It will feature a semi-actively controlled shock absorber to optimize the suspension for a broadrange of operator weights and sea states. In the Phase I effort, a conceptual design and architecture for both control hardware and software was d ...

  2. Safety-Sensing Independence-Enhancing Wheelchair

    SBC: MOBILEROBOTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Serious wheelchair accidents have risen to almost 37,000 per year. Users of power chairs are three times as likely to have accidents as users of manual chairs! Many people can neither walk nor successfully navigate a wheelchair, e.g., many with MS, quadraplegia, spinal stenosis, visual and other impairments. The Safety Sensing Independence-Enhancing Wheelch ...

  3. Ethanol Production via Consolidated Bioprocessing

    SBC: Advanced Bioconversion Technologies            Topic: N/A

    72808S03-I The conversion of cellulosic biomass to commodity products via biological processing could benefit society by improving energy security, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promoting rural economies. However, commercial application is impeded by the current absence of low-cost technology to overcome the recalcitrance of cellulosic biomass. This project will develop a strain of Clo ...

  4. Development of Ultrasonic Appratus for Dental Diagnosis

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION: An ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus has been proposed for Dental applications in determining tooth pathologies such as demineralization/caries, hidden fractures, and formation of abscesses. The equipment adopts a piezoelectric and laser optic hybrid transduction system for interrogation of teeth. Ultrasonic responses of the tooth structure will be analyzed by a pattern recognition expe ...

  6. State-of-the-Art Reconfigurable Board for Heterogeneous Computing

    SBC: Advanced Principles Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    73089S03-I Software Radio, needed for national security applications, drives wide bandwidths (40-100 MHz) and therefore requires super-computing I/O and signal processing capabilities. General-purpose processors do not provide enough performance density to effectively address these applications, while Application Specific Integrated Circuits are costly and difficult to update. Therefore, this p ...

  7. Personalizing Speech Output for Communication Devices

    SBC: AGORA NET INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): ModelTalker is a text-to-speech synthesis (TTS) system intended to be of particular interest to potential Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) device users. Most present AAC devices use TTS software that derives from rule-based formant synthesis algorithms developed in the 1970s, but modern concatenative synthesis systems (of which ModelTalker is an ...

  9. Rapid Radiation Failure Analysis of Digital Circuits Using a Computing Farm

    SBC: ALTERNATIVE SYSTEM CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The failure of digital circuits due to radiation using simulation was not addressed in the past due to several obstacles. First, radiation failure models, radiation faults dictionaries and the specification of susceptibility to radiation are not availablein the current hardware description languages (HDL) like IEEE 1076 (VHDL) or IEEE 1364 (Verilog). Second, the simulation that will gather useful ...

  10. New Materials for Plague Antigen and Antibody Detection

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop novel soluble sensing materials that can be used in homogenous fluorescence assays for the detection of Yersinia pestis antigens and antibodies. Y. pestis is the etiological cause of plague and a potential biowarfare agent. The sensing materials are solutions of functionalized liposomes that become fluorescent when they bind selectively t ...
