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. CLINICAL APPLICATION OF A LASER SCANNING CYTOMETER

    SBC: Compucyte Corp.            Topic: N/A

    WE HAVE DEVELOPED A COMPUTER CONTROLLED LASER SCANNING CYTOMETER POTENTIALLY CAPABLE OF MEASURING MULTIPLE WAVELENGTH FLUORESCENCE AND MULTIPLE ANGLE SCATTER OF CELLS ON A SOLID SUPPORT SUCH AS A SLIDE, CUVETTE, OR CULTURE PLATE AT RAPID ENOUGH RATES TO PROCESS 10,000 CELL SAMPLES IN TWO MINUTES. IN ADDITION TO THE STANDARD FLOW CYTOMETRY MEASUREMENTS, THIS INSTRUMENT INCLUDES IN ITS DATA LISTS AN ...

  2. An Active Smart Material System for Buffet Load Alleviation

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort investigates the use of smart materials (such as strain actuators and sensors) and modern control theory to suppress unsteady buffet loads encountered by vertical tail aircraft such as the F/A-18. The active smart material system proposed has distinct advantages over traditional passive damping treatments and active articulated control surface techniques. This innovative smart ...

  5. AN INTGRATED VIDEO AND GAMMA RAY IMAGING SYSTEM FOR ROBOTS IN NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ROBOTS ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT THROUGHOUT THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY. THEY ARE COMMONLY USED TO IMPROVE OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE, LOWER OPERATING COSTS, ENHANCE WORKER SAFETY, AND REDUCE RADIATION EXPOSURE TO WORKERS. HOWEVER, THE CAPABILITIES OF EXISTING ROBOTS ARE LIMITEDBY THE SYSTEMS USED TO SENSE THEIR SURROUNDINGS. ALTHOUGH EXISTING ROBOTS OFTEN HAVE VISUAL IMAGING SYSTEMS AND NUCLEA ...

  6. OXIDE DISPERSION STRENGTHENED SILVER FOR USE IN HIGH-TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR COMPOSITE WIRES

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE STRENGTHENING OF HIGH-TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTS)COMPOSITE WIRES WITH OXIDE DISPERSION STRENGTHENED (ODS) SILVER IS THE SUBJECT OF THIS PROJECT. STATE-OF-THE-ART HTS COMPOSITE WIRES CONSIST OF CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTOR FILAMENTS ENCASED IN A SILVER (AG) SHEATH. FOR REASONS OF CHEMICAL COMPATIBILITY AND OXYGEN PERMEABILITY, SILVER IS THE ONLY MATERIAL THAT CAN BE USED TO SHEATH THE HTS. HOWE ...

  7. MEASUREMENT OF MERCURY AND OTHER TRACE METALS IN COMBUSTION GASES

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PLANNED TO INVESTIGATE THE APPLICATION OF ACTIVE NITROGEN ENERGY TRANSFER (ANET) FLUORESCENCE EXCITATION TO THE DETECTION OF MERCURY IN EXHAUST STACK EFFLUENTS FROM COAL BURNING POWR PLANTS. THE INNOVATION IS TO APPLY DIELECTRIC-BARRIER DISCHARGE TECHNOLOGY TO GENERATE ACTIVE NITROGEN AT ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE. MERCURY FLUORESCENCE AT 253.7 NM WILL BE EXCITED BY THE ACTIVE NITROGEN WHEN SMALL ...

  8. SUPERCONDUCTING WIRE WITH A BUILT-IN NIOBIUM SURFACE COATING TO LIMIT INTERSTAND EDDY CURRENTS IN CABLES

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE STABILITY AND EFFICIENCY OF LARGE SCALE SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNET SYSTEMS OFTEN SUFFER FROM INTERSTAND EDDY CURRENT LOSSES. THERE ARE DRAWBACKS IN THE EXISTING HARD CHROME PLATING TECHNIQUE WHEN IT IS APPLIED TO NIOBIUM-TIN (NG3SN) STRANDS. A NEW TECHNIQUE OF DEVELOPING A CONTINUOUS, BUILT-IN NIOBIUM (NB) COATING ON THE SURFACE OF A SUPERCONDUCTING WIRE WILL BE INCORPORATED INTO THE MANUFACTURE O ...

  9. A PASSIVE OPTICAL MONITOR FOR TOKAMAK PLASMA INHOMOGENEITIES

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL, INEXPENSIVE, AND PASSIVE OPTICAL DIAGNOSTIC FOR MEASUREMENT OF THE SCALE SIZE AND FLOW VELOCITY OF TOKAMAK PLASMA INJOMOGENEITIES HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. THE DIAGNOSTIC IS BASED ON AN EQUAL-PATH, LATERAL SHEARING INTERFEROMETER AND CAN BE ANLAYZED, IN PRINCIPLE, AS A FORM OF DOPPLER VELOCIMETER. THIS SYSTEM REQUIRES ONLY INCOHERENT LIGHT EMISSION FROM THE PLASMA ITSELF FOR OPERATION. THE DIAG ...

  10. A HIGH REPETITION-RATE, HIGH POWER, ALL-SOLID-STATE PULSED DRIVER FOR ELECTRODELESS INDUCTIVE THRUSTERS

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH POWER, LONG LIFE, HIGH IMPULSE THRUSTERS FOR NUCLEAR ELECTRIC PROPULSION. THE PULSED ELECTRODELESS INDUCTIVE THRUSTER HAS SEVERAL ADVANTAGES INCLUDING AN ULTRALOW EROSION RATE, LONG THRUSTER LIFE, AND HIGH POWER CAPABILITY. THE PERFORMANCE OF PRESENT INDUCTIVE THRUSTERS HAS BEEN HINDERED BY THE LACK OF RELIABLE, EFFICIENT, PULSED-POWER TECHN ...
