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. Remote Measurements Of Clouds And Fog

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ASPEN SYSTEMS PROPOSES AN INNOVATIVE APPARATUS FOR REMOTE MEASUREMENT OF CLOUD AND FOG PARAMETERS, SUCH AS WATER CONTENT. THIS LIDAR APPARATUS USES STATE-OF-THE-ART LASER TECHNOLOGY TO MEASURE THE PROPERTIES OF A CLOUD OR FOG (CONSTITUENT, WATER DROPLET SIZE AND CONCENTRATION) REGARDLESS OF AMBIENT LIGHT CONDITIONS (DAY OR NIGHT) OR LOCATION OF DEPLOYMENT (GROUND BASED OR AIRBORNE). THE PROPOSED L ...

  3. Automated Target Recognition & Surveillance Using Neural Networks

    SBC: Intuitive Computing            Topic: N/A

    STRATEGIC DEFENSE SYSTEMS NEED TO DEVELOP AUTOMATED TARGET RECOGNITION (STR) SUB-MUNITIONS THAT CAN IDENTIFY FRIEND OR FOE AND FOR SURVEILLANCE. CURRENT ATR METHODS HAVE PROBLEMS CLASSIFYING HIGHLY VARYING IMAGES OF 3D OBJECTS. THE PROPOSED WORK AIMS TO OVERCOME SOME OF THESE DIFFICULTIES BY BUILDING A NEURAL NETWORK ATR SYSTEM THAT LEARNS BY EXAMPLE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT I ...

  5. Improved Substrates For GaN and AlN Films

    SBC: Linares Management Assoc.,            Topic: N/A

    GALLIUM NITRIDE AND ALUMINUM NITRIDE FILMS ARE CURRENTLY GROWN ON SUBSTRATES WITH SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT CRYSTAL STRUCTURES AND ATOMIC SPACING. FILMS GROWN ON SUCH SUBSTRATES HAVE POOR CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC PROPERTIES WHICH RESULT IN DEGRADATION OF ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES AND DEVICE PERFORMANCE. IMPROVED SUBSTRATE MATERIALS ARE REQUIRED WHICH WILL PERMIT THE GROWTH OF PERFECT FILMS OF GaN AND AlN. THE F ...

  7. High Flux Heat Transfer System

    SBC: Merix Corp            Topic: N/A

    HIGH POWER ELECTRONICS DEVICES SUCH AS POWER SWITCHES GENERATE LARGE HEAT FLUXES, WHICH MUST BE REMOVED, OR THE DEVICES WILL EXCEED THEIR UPPER TEMPERATURE LIMITS. MOST COOLING METHODS ARE INCAPABLE OF REMOVING SUCH LARGE HEAT FLUXES. MERIX CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A HIGH EFFICIENCY COOLING DEVICE TO REMOVE THESE HEAT FLUXES IN A PRACTICAL MANNER. THE DEVICE WILL FORM THE BACKBONE OF AN INT ...
