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. IN VIVO TOTAL BODY LEAD ANALYSIS BY X-RAY FLUORESCENCE

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE AN ESTIMATED 600,000 CHILDREN UNDER SIX YEARS OLD WITH ELEVATED BLOOD LEAD LEVELS AND ONLY 5,000 PER YEAR UNDERGOING TREATMENT; AS YET, NO TECHNIQUE IS AVAILABLE TO MEASURE TOTAL BODY LEAD BURDEN. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A TECHNIQUE WHICH USES X-RAY FLUORESCENCE IN A TRANSMISSION GEOMETRY TO MEASURE THE TOTAL BODY-BURDEN OF LEAD, IN VIVO, NONINVASIVELY. A SYSTEM USING A GOLD CALIBRATION ...

  2. TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FOR A LARGE-SCALE, SPACE-BASED, COMPLIANT MANIPULATOR

    SBC: Adaptive Machine Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PERFORMANCE OF LARGE-SCALE, LIGHTWEIGHT, SPACE-BASED MANIPULATORS IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY THE AVAILABLE CONTROL SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES. TO ACHIEVE HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH A SPACE-BASED MANIPULATOR, A CONTROL SYSTEM IS REQUIRED WHICH DOES NOT UNDERGO PERFORMANCE DEGRADATION DUE TO MANIPULATOR LINK FLEXURE. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA OF COMPLIANT MANIPULATOR CONTROL HAS BEEN HINDERED BY TWO ...

  3. PORTABLE LIGHT-WEIGHT FIELD DENTAL CHAIR UTILIZING COMPOSITE MATERIALS

    SBC: Adelsys Inc            Topic: N/A

    DENTAL ILLNESSES AND INJURIES OCCURRING IN THE FIELD ARE DIFFICULT TO TREAT WITHOUT A DENTAL CHAIR. WE HAVE DESIGNED A FIELD EXPEDIENT DENTAL CHAIR MADE OF COMPOSITE (PRIMARILY HONEYCOMB AND CARBONGRAPHITE FIBER) MATERIALS. THE CHAIR ALLOWS BOTH STAND-UP AND SIT DOWN DENTISTRY. THE CHAIR WEIGHS LESS THAN TEN LB., FOLDS TO A SMALL VOLUME, IS EASILY CLEANED AND IS RUGGED. ADDITIONALLY, THE DEVICE AL ...

  4. FAILURE MECHANISMS IN COMPOSITE TURBINE BLADES

    SBC: ADTECH SYSTEMS RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF THE COMPLEXITY OF GEOMETRY, LOADS AND MATERIAL SYSTEMS OF TURBINE BLADES, THE STRESS AND STRENGTH CHARACTERISTICS CAN NOT BE ACCURATELY PREDICTED BY EXISTING METHODS. THE COMPOSITE TURBINE BLADE STRENGTH CAPABILITIES ARE VERY MUCH DEPENDENT UPON THE CONSTITUENT MATERIAL PROPERTIES, PLY ORIENTATIONS AND STACKING SEQUENCE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED STUDY IS TO DEVELOP A TECHNIQUE TO P ...

  5. IMMUNODIRECTABLE MR CONTRAST AGENTS

    SBC: ADVANCED MAGNETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NUMBER OF SYNTHESES OF SMALL MAGNETIC PARTICLES PERMITTINGTHE COVALENT ATTACHMENT OF ANTIBODIES WILL BE EXAMINED. CHANGES IN MAGNETIC RESONANCE (MR) PROTON RELAXATION AFTER MAGNETIC ANTIBODIES HAVE BOUND TO CELL SURFACE ANTIGENS WILLBE UTILIZED TO DEMONSTRATE THE BINDING OF ANTIBODY (AND MAGNETIC LABEL) TO ANTIGENS. THE MAGNETIC LABELS INVESTIGATED WILL POSESS THE MAGNETIC PROPERTIES OF A CRYSTA ...

  6. BEHAVIOR OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES

    SBC: Advanced Materials Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES THAT MAY BE USED IN DEEP SPACE VEHICLES MIGHT HAVE SEVERE INTERNAL STRESSES DUE TO THE THERMAL EXPANSION DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE MATRIX AND THE FIBERS. SINCE THE TEMPERATURES EXPERIENCED WITH THESE VEHICLES MAY BE AS LOW AS A FEW DEGREES ABOVE ABSOLUTE ZERO, IT IS NECESSARY TO KNOW THE THERMAL MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES TO BE USED AS STRUCTURAL MATERIALS ...

  7. FLUIDIZED BED FOR PREVENTION OF FREEZING IN CRYOGENIC HEAT EXCHANGERS

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SERIOUS PROBLEM IN HEAT EXCHANGERS WHERE ATMOSPHERIC AIR IS COOLED TO CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES IS THAT THE AMBIENT WATER VAPOR AND CO(2) FREEZE ONTO THE HEAT TRANSFER SURFACES. AS THE SOLID DEPOSITS ACCUMULATE THEY ADVERSELY AFFECT PERFORMANCE BY DECREASING HEAT EXCHANGER EFFECTIVENESS AND INCREASING PRESSURE DROP. AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH FOR DEALING WITH THE FREEZING PROBLEM WHICH OFFERS SIGNIFICA ...

  8. ADVANCED PERMEABLE MEMBRANE OBIGGS/OBOGS SYSTEM

    SBC: A/g Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF NEWLY DEVELOPED ADVANCED PERMEABLE MEMBRANES FOR THE COMBINED DUTIES ON MILITARY AIRCRAFT OF NITROGEN GENERATION TO INERT FUEL TANKS AND OXYGEN GENERATION FOR PILOT BREATHING IN A UNIQUE SYSTEM ARRANGEMENT. THESE COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT MEMBRANES LEND THEMSELVES TO A MORE EFFICIENT OBIGGS/OBOGS DESIGN COMBINATION THA ...

  9. SCRIBE DATA VALIDATION AND ANALYSIS

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF THE UNIQUE SCRIBE HIGH RESOLUTION ATMOSPHERIC EMISSION SPECTRA AND ITS DIURNAL VARIATION IN SEVERAL APPLICATIONS. WE WILL VALIDATE THE SPECTRA BY COMPARISON WITH CALCULATED REFERENCE SYNTHETIC SPECTRA AND WITH OTHER SYNTHETIC SPECTRA. WE WILL CHECK TO SEE WHETHER DISCREPANCIES CAN BE REDUCED OR ELIMINATED BY VARYING THE PROFILES OF TRACE GASES, AND WHETHE ...

  10. CLOUD PROPERTY DETERMINATION FROM MULTISPECTRAL DMSP OLS

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL DETERMINE CLOUD PROPERTIES FROM SIMULATED MULTISPECTRAL DMSP OLS DATA BY COMBINING A SCENE MODEL APPROACH WITH A VARIETY OF CLOUD PARAMETER RETRIEVAL METHODS. THE MULTISPECTRAL OLS DATA WILL BE CREATED BY RESAMPLING LANDSAT THEMATIC MAPPER SPATIALLY AND SPECTRALLY. THE PROPOSED SENSOR HAS SEVERAL SPECTRAL BANDS WHICH, IN PRINCIPLE, ALLOW CLOUD AMOUNT AND HEIGHT TO BE RETRIE ...
