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. FREQUENCY STABILIZATION IN PULSED LASER WAVEFORMS

    SBC: Laser Science, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A DESIGN PHASE PROGRAM IS PROPOSED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCESS AND EQUIPMENT FOR USE IN FREQUENCY CONTROL OF PULSED LASERS TO ACHIEVE VERY HIGH FREQUENCY STABILITY ( 1 IN 10 TO THE 10TH POWER OR 10 TO THE 11TH POWER). THERE EXISTS A VARIETY OF IMPORTANT LASER RADAR APPLICATIONS FOR WHICH ENERGETIC LASER PULSES ARE NEEDED AT A FREQUENCY STABILITY AT THIS LEVEL. THE EXISTING METHOD TO ACHIEVE S ...

  2. LIGHTWEIGHT HIGH PERFORMANCE CAPACITOR FILM

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ORDERED POLYMER FILMS PROCESSED FROM POLYPHENYLENE BENZOBISTHIAZOLE WILL BE MADE, TESTED AND EVALUATED FOR USE IN LIGHTWEIGHT HIGH PERFORMANCE CAPACITORS FOR AIRBORNE AND SPACEBORNE APPLICATIONS WITH ENERGY STORAGE OVER 3000 JOULES PER KILOGRAM. SPACE CHARGE SHIELDING NEAR THE ELECTRODES WILL BE USE TO PREVENT DIELECTRIC BREAKDOWN AT THE ELECTRODE INTERFACE.

  3. ACCESS: A COMMUNICATING AND COOPERATING EXPERT SYSTEMS SYSTEM

    SBC: SYMBIOTECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE INTENT OF THIS PROJECT IS TO PROVIDE A SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT WHICH WILL ALLOW IMMEDIATE IMPLEMENTATION OF A VARIETY OF COOPERATING EXPERT SYSTEM PARADIGMS. THE ENVIRONMENT, REFERRED TO AS ACCESS, WILL BE DESIGNED TO BE EXPERT SYSTEM REPRESENTATION INDEPENDENT, BE PORTABLE TO ANY HARDWARE WHICH SUPPORTS COMMON LISP, PROVIDE A FLEXIBLE MESSAGE PASSING PROTOCOL AND ALLOW THE USER TO ARRANGE EXPERT ...

  4. DESIGN OF SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS BASED ON HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS

    SBC: Molecular Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATOR SENSITIVE IN THE INFRARED AND AT SAME TIME PROVIDING THE CAPABILITY OF MODULATING A LASER BEAM IN THE VISIBLE SHALL BE OF GREAT VALUE IN OPTICAL INFORMATION PROCESSING. THIS PROPOSAL DISCUSSES THE FEASIBILITY OF SUCH A DEVICE UTILIZING HIGH TRANSITION TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS IN CONJUNCTION WITH A NONLINEAR OPTICAL MATERIAL. THE NONLINEARITY EXPLOITED FOR THESE DEVICES ...

  5. RENAL BLOOD FLOW MONITOR FOR ICU PATIENTS

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

    ACUTE RENAL FAILURE IS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTING CAUSE OF DEATH IN PATIENTS IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT PARTLY DUE TO THE LACK OF A SIMPLE, RAPID METHOD OF ASSESSING KIDNEY FUNCTION. IT WOULD THEREFORE BE EXTREMELY USEFUL IF A DIRECT MEASUREMENT OF RENAL FUNCTION COULD BE PERFORMED AT REGULAR INTERVALS SO THAT THE NEED FOR ANY MEDICAL OR SURGICAL INTERVENTION COULD BE IDENTIFIED BEFORE ANY SIGNIFICANT D ...

  6. LONG-PULSE UV LASER AND OPTICAL CATHETER FOR VITRECTOMY

    SBC: CANDELA CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    VITREORETINAL DISEASE IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF BLINDNESS. CURRENT SURGICAL VITRECTOMY UTILIZES MECHANICAL CUTTING DEVICES. HOWEVER, MECHANICAL REMOVAL OF THE VITREOUS MAY BECOMPLICATED BY INSUFFICIENT TISSUE CUTTING AND/OR INADVERTENT TRACTION ON THE RETINA, RESULTING IN RETINAL TEARS, DETACHMENT, AND HEMORRHAGE. IN THIS GRANT APPLICATION, A LONG-PULSE ULTRA-VIOLET (UV) LASER IS PROPOSED FOR VITREOUS C ...

  7. THERMAL CONDUCTING PLASTICS

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    A NONMETALLIC MATERIAL IS PROPOSED THAT CAN BE USED TO MANUFACTURE COATINGS OR COMPLETE SECTIONS OF HEAT EXCHANGERS WHICH ARE SUBMERGED IN SALTWATER FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. THE PROPOSED MATERIAL SHOULD BE RESISTANT TO THE SEAWATER EXPOSURE AND AT THE SAME TIME HAVE A THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY EXCEEDING 30 W/M-OC.

  8. EXPERT SYSTEMS FOR REAL-TIME MONITORING AND FAULT DIAGNOSIS

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJOR DEFICIENCIES IN CURRENT REAL-TIME AUTOMATIC FAULT DIAGNOSIS APPLICATIONS FOR AEROSPACE SYSTEMS ARE THE HIGH RATE OF FALSE ALARMS, AND THE MAINTENANCE PROBLEMS CAUSED BYINTERMITTENT FAILURES. THESE DEFICIENCIES ARE DUE TO THE INACCURACY OF THE UNDERLYING NUMERICAL MODEL ON WHICH THE FAULT DIAGNOSIS ALGORITHM DESIGN IS BASED. THE AIM OF THIS STUDY IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE USE OF EXPERT SYSTEM ...

  9. HIERARCHICAL DAMAGE TOLERANT CONTROLLERS FOR SMART STRUCTURES

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SMART AEROSPACE STRUCTURE WHICH CAN DETECT AND ISOLATE STRUCTURAL DAMAGE IN REAL-TIME AND PROVIDE ON-LINE RECONFIGURATION OF THE STRUCTURE'S CONTROL SYSTEM UNDER THE DETECTED IMPAIRMENT CONDITIONS WOULD SIGNIFICANTLY BOOST THE RELIABILITY, MAINTAINABILITY AND PERFORMANCE OF CURRENT AND PROPOSED AIR FORCE FLIGHT AND SPACE VEHICLES. HERE, WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE AND DEFINE A SMART AEROSPACE STRU ...

  10. A SOFTWARE PACKAGE FOR EXACT LOGISTIC REGRESSION

    SBC: CYTEL SOFTWARE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    IN MANY CLINICAL OR EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES, THE OBJECTIVE IS TO RELATE A BINARY RESPONSE VARIABLE TO TREATMENT, EXPOSURE LEVELS, AND OTHER COVARIATES. USUALLY THIS IS DONEBY USING A LOGISTIC MODEL WITH THE DATA ANALYSIS BASED ON LARGE-SAMPLE ASSUMPTIONS. FREQUENTLY, HOWEVER, THE SAMPLE SIZE IS SO SMALL OR THE DATA STRUCTURE SO SPARSE AS TO INVALIDATE THESE ASSUMPTIONS. FOR EXAMPLE, STUDIES OF CAN ...
