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 BIOMAGNETIC SENSOR FOR DETECTING BREAST CANCER

    SBC: SENIOR SCIENTIFIC            Topic: N/A

    Early detection of breast cancer is a primary goal in cancer imaging and it is important to identify tumors at an early stage of growth to identify their type. Standard x-ray mammography does not always provide adequate diagnosis; e.g., in cases such as dense or radiation-scarred breasts, and often does not identify tumor presence until significant growth has occurred. Alternative methods are bei ...

  2. A Compact, Low-Power Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many hazardous gases that NASA needs to monitor on and around space vehicles during launch could be detected using mass spectrometers that need operate over only a limited mass range. But, stringent requirements of low weight and low power operation, plus the ability to tolerate high G-forces and excessive vibration prevent the ready adaptation of existing, commercial mass spectrometers to these a ...

  4. A Component-Based Software Framework for Large Scale Systems

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop a component-based software framework for developing large-scale software and hardware/software systems based upon an innovative software architecture we originally developed for use in the modeling and simulation of complex systems.This architecture make use of the familiar concepts and terminology of systems engineering - systems, subsystems, inputs, outputs, and so forth - ...

  5. A Comprehensive Prediction and Control System for Combustion Processes

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The prediction, identification and notification of spacecraft fires is critical in assuring the safety of manned space missions. Absent the effects of buoyancy in space, the chemical and fluid dynamic phenomena that govern the ignition, spread and extinction of fires are far different than those on Earth. Our understanding and predictive capabilities depend on detailed models that must be versatil ...

  6. A Real-time Sensor for Hydrogen Cyanide in Spacecraft Atmospheres

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for continuous monitoring of hydrogen cyanide (HCN) in spacecraft/habitat air. HCN, a highly toxic gas generated by burning or smoldering plastics, can provide early warning of spacecraft fires. NASA has established a Spacecraft Maximum Allowable Concentration (SMAC) of 1 ppm for manned missions exceeding one week. Useful space-borne instruments must satisfy stringent requirements un ...

  8. Accelerator-Based, Epithermal Neutron Source for BNCT

    SBC: Linac Systems            Topic: N/A

    70454 Intense beams of epithermal neutrons, at sites close to major medical centers, are needed to advance the development of the boron neutron capture modality of cancer therapy. Particle accelerators are the top candidates to meet this need. This project will develop a new rf-focused drift tube linear accelerator structure as an economical source for these neutron beams. The source ...

  9. Active Laser Tracker for KKV

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "Ballistic missile defense requires the ability to find, track and intercept a threat missile before it can reach its target. The kinetic kill vehicle (KKV) is a fundamental means to intercept and destroy the threat. To be successful, the KKV must be ableto acquire and track the target autonomously while steering itself on an intercept course. It must do this within a very small Circular Error ...
