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. 128x128 Ultra-High Density Optical Interconnect

    SBC: Xinetics, Inc.            Topic: S303

    Future NASA programs like Tertiary Planet Finder (TPF) require high density deformable mirrors with upto 16,000 actuators to enable direct imaging of planets around distant stars. Xinetics has been developing high density module actuator arrays that will enable deformable mirrors to be fabricated with array sizes upto 128 by 128. These monolithic actuator arrays have eliminated the need for descre ...

  2. 3D Self-Assembled Optical and Fluidic Microsystems Using Ultraprecision Diamond Machining and Metal Electroplating

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: OSD99001

    The proposed Phase II SBIR project will result in a new technology for producing true-3D, multilayer structures using ultraprecision machine tools, in combination with MEMS manufacturing methods. This new technology will focus primarily on metal structural layers and will be suitable for producing complex optical and fluidic systems. The manufacturing process model proposed is distinct from all ...

  3. A "Smart Skin" Array for Reconfigurable Hypersonic MHD Effects

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB032031

    Research Support Instruments, Inc. (RSI), with the aid of Princeton University, proposes to use an innovative sensor/actuator package to provide a critical component for multifunctional hypersonic vehicle structures. An integrated array of microfabricated pressure sensors and ionizers will provide a "smart skin" atop a reconfigurable magnetic array. The high-bandwidth sensors will detect develo ...

  6. A Design of a New Readout Sensor for SPECT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 5

    72486-With the ever increasing number of smaller animals, such as mice and rats, being used as human disease models, the demand for small animal imaging also has increased. In particular, the pharmaceutical industry requires the in vivo quantification of biological processes, to measure the mechanism of action of a pharmacological agent and its concentration at the site of action. High-resolutio ...

  7. A Detector for Combined SPECT/CT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 23

    75524-Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) maintains an important role in the study of disease models in small animals as well as in patient care. Although rich in physiological information content, interpretation of SPECT data for these studies is challenging because SPECT images lack anatomical information. Dual-modality imaging, which combines radionuclide imaging with anatomica ...
