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. Phase Conjugation with Loss or Gain

    SBC: Books Forever            Topic: N/A

    Phase conjugation, discovered over 20 years ago, now has a wide assortment of applications. However, phase conjugation requires that the medium in which the phase conjugation takes place in be lossless. Based on recent preliminary research for which it is anticipated a patent will be applied for, it now appears possible for a limited though important class of materials to extend the phase conjugat ...

  6. Tunable Laser with Wide Tuning Range for Plastic Fiber Systems

    SBC: Corpetek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Plastic Optical Fiber systems provide significantly lower costs, and complexity compared to glass optical fiber systems and are suitable for future short haul communication needs. While Silicon photodiodes provide excellent receiving capabilities there is no efficient tunable laser source for these wavelengths. CoreTek proposes the development of a low cost, manufacturable, widely tunable laser di ...

  8. Distributed Area Averaging Sensors

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Vibration suppression/rejection is important for many space system attitude controls. Structural vibration of solar arrays and instrumentation booms can significantly degrade the performance of attitude control systems and reduce the accuracy of scientific instrumentations. In establishing effective attitude control, the effect of disturbance loads due to the structural vibration must be measured. ...
