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. GENETIC TRANSFORMATION AND GENE EXPRESSION IN WHITE PINE (PINUS STROBUS)

    SBC: Aeta Corp            Topic: N/A

    IN RECENT YEARS, CONSIDERABLE ATTENTION HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNIQUES FOR GENETIC TRANSFORMATION OF HIGHER PLANTS. MOST ADVANCES HAVE BEEN MADE USING EITHER PETUNIA OR NICOTIANA AS A MODEL EXPERIMENTAL SYSTEM, MAINLY BECAUSE THESE PLANTS RESPOND WELL FOR REGENERATION IN CELL CULTURE. THERE IS AN OBVIOUS NEED TO EXTEND THESE STUDIES TO OTHER SPECIES, FOREST TREES IN PARTICULAR, ...

  2. MONOLITHIC GAAS LIGHT-EMITTING DIODES ON SILICON VLSI CIRCUITS ELEMENTS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OPTOELECTRONIC SOURCES, INTEGRATED AS MONOLITHIC ELEMENTS ON SILICON VLSI CHIPS, OFFER IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES IN THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION WITHIN THE CHIP OR BETWEEN CHIPS IN ADVANCED COMPUTER SYSTEMS. THE SPEED OF OPTICAL-INTEGRATED VLSI DEVICES IS EXPECTED TO BE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN EQUIVALENT VLSI WITH METALLIC INTERCONNECTS, DUE TO ABSENCE OF THE RC DELAY INHERENT IN THE METALLIC CONDU ...

  3. HIGH-EFFICIENCY THIN-FILM SILICON-ON-GAP SOLAR CELL FOR IMPROVED RADIATION RESISTANCE

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE HIGH-EFFICIENCY CRYSTALLINE SILICON SOLAR CELL DESIGN CONSISTS OF A THIN FILM OF ELECTRICALLY-ACTIVE SILICON EPITAXIALLY GROWN ON AN OXIDE-OVERCOATED, INFRARED-TRANSPARENT GALLIUM PHOSPHIDE (GAP) SUBSTRATE. IN ADDITION TO HIGH CONVERSION EFFICIENCY AND INTRINSIC RADIATION RESISTANCE DUE TO THE THIN ACTIVE LAYERS, THIS NOVEL DESIGN HAS SEVERAL UNIQUE PERFORMANCE ENHANCING FEATURES. THE ...

  4. INTEGRATED GAAS EMITTER FOR OPTICAL INTERCONNECTIONS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFECT OF SCALING DOWN DEVICE DIMENSIONS OF VLSI STRUCTURES AND THE COMBINATION OF INCREASED CIRCUIT COMPLEXITY DURING THE SCALING PROCESS IS PLACING SEVERE LIMITATIONS ON THE MINIMUM PROPAGATION DELAY OF METALLIC INTERCONNECTS. OPTICAL INTERCONNECTS REMOVE THOSE SPEED LIMITATIONS AND OFFER A DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY THAT ELECTRICAL INTERCONNECTS COULD NEVER OBTAIN. THE KEY OPPORTUNITY IS TO INTE ...

  6. THE SUSPENSION CORE DRILL

    SBC: Browning Engineering            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL ROCK CORE DRILLING AT GREAT DEPTHS IS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING. ITS MAJOR DRAWBACK IS THE REQUIRED LENGTH OF DRILL PIPE. THE SUSPENSION CORE DRILL IS SUPPORTED BY CONTINUOUS FLEXIBLE LEADS HELD ON ONE OR MORE HIGH-SPEED REELS. WITHDRAWALS AND REPLACEMENT TIMES CAN BE REDUCED BY AN ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE. COMMERCIAL USES INCLUDE STANDARD CORING APPLICATIONS AS WELL AS INTERMI ...

  7. DEVICE FOR AUTOMATIC DETECTION OF URINATION

    SBC: JONAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROJECT ARE TO DEVELOP AN INEXPENSIVE DISPOSABLE UNDERGARMENT DEVICE FOR EARLY AUTOMATIC DETECTION OF URINATION AND TO DESIGN A QUANTITATIVE DEVICE TO BE USED IN CLINICAL RESEARCH AND OTHER APPLICATIONS. THE ELECTRONIC OUTPUT OF THE DETECTOR SYSTEM WILL TRIGGER A SIGNAL TO BE OBSERVED BY THE PERSON WEARING THE GARMENT AND/OR BY OTHERS (NURSE, ETC.). THE DEVICES WILL BE USEFULL A ...

  8. DESIGN OF A HIGH SPEED, HIGH RESOLUTION SIDE SCAN SONAR SYS TEM

    SBC: KLEIN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    SIDE SCAN SONAR HAS DEVELOPED TO THE POINT WHERE IT IS NOW AN ACCEPTED PART OF HYDROGRAPHIC CHARTING PROJECTS, AS WELL AS A BROAD RANGE OF OCEAN SEARCH AND SURVEY APPLICATIONS. ONE LIMITATION ON ITS UTILITY, HOWEVER, IS THE REQUIREMENT TO OPERATE THE SYSTEM AT RELATIVELY LOW SPEEDS (5 KNOTS OR LOR LESS) IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE HIGH-QUALITY DATA. ANY INCREASEIN VESSEL SPEED CAPABILITY WOULD RESULT IN G ...

  9. CONCEPT FOR NUCLEAR-RELATED ATMOSPHERIC OPTICAL/INFRARED RADIANCE MEASUREMENTS PROGRAM (POLARS)

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCEPT FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR A SATELLITE-BASED OPTICAL-INFRARED DISTURBED ATMOSPHERE SIGNATURE PROGRAM IS PROPOSED. THE INITIAL CONCEPT IS FOR A POLAR-ORBITING OPTICAL-INFRARED ANALOG TO THE HILAT SATELLITE WHERE-IN A HIGH PROBABILITY OF AURORAL ACQUISITION IS ANTICIPATED. INITIAL TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES OF CRYOGENIC OPERATION AND EXPECTED LIFETIME ARE DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF THE IRAS SUCCESS. THE ...

  10. AN ALL-METAL COMPACT HEAT EXCHANGER FOR SPACEBORNE CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL CYCLE EFFICIENCY (HENCE, INPUT POWER REQUIREMENTS) OF REVERSE-BRAYTON CRYOCOOLERS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS IS HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO THE THERMAL EFFECTIVENESS OF THE HEAT EXCHANGERS. APPLICATIONS FOR THESE CRYOCOOLERS IN SPACE DICTATE THAT THESE HEAT EXCHANGERS BE AS SMALL AND LIGHT AS POSSIBLE. TO DATE, ONLYHEAT EXCHANGERS EMPLOYING ORGANIC MATERIALS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE HIGH THER ...
