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. THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH COMMUNITY HAS URGENT NEED FOR AN AUTOMATED, STAND-ALONE AQUATIC NUTRIENT ANALYZER.

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH COMMUNITY HAS URGENT NEED FOR AN AUTOMATED, STAND-ALONE AQUATIC NUTRIENT ANALYZER. PRELIMINARY STUDIES AT AERODYNE HAVE SHOWN THAT EXCIMER LASER VAPORIZATION OF WATER DROPLETS CAN BE ACHIEVED. SPECTRALLY RESOLVED EMISSION FROM DISSOLVED SPECIES OR THEIR EXCITED FRAGMENTS, CREATED BY THE VAPORIZATION LASER PULSE, HAVE ALSO BEEN OBSERVED. THESE PHENOMENA HOLD THE PR ...

  2. SPACE QUALIFIED, IMAGE QUALITY ULTRAVIOLET INTERFERENCE FILTERS

    SBC: Barr Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT UV FILTERS CAN HAVE VERY HIGH SPECTRAL PERFORMANCE, BUT THE BEST SPECTRAL PERFORMANCE GENERALLY REQUIRES USE OF MATERIALS AND FILTER CONSTRUCTION WHICH ARE NOT WELL QUALIFIED FOR USE IN SPACE AND HAVE MARGINAL IMAGE QUALITY. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO IMPROVE THIS SITUATION BYREDUCING TO MINIMUM, THE NUMBER OF SUBSTRATES USED AND TOTALLY ELIMINATING CEMENT AND COLOR GLASSES. IN ORD ...

  3. MEASUREMENT OF UPPER MID FREQUENCY ERRORS ON ARBITRARY GRAZING INCIDENCE OPTICS

    SBC: Bauer Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM OF MEASURING UPPER MID FREQUENCY ERRORS (THOSE WITH PERIODS FROM 0.5 TO 5 MM) ON GRAZING INCIDENCE OPTICS. THESE ERRORS, EVEN WITH AMPLITUDES OF 5 TO 50 ANGSTROMS RMS, HAVE A SERIOUS IMPACT ON SCATTER IN GRAZING INCIDENCE EXTREME ULTRA VIOLET (EUV) AND X-RAY SYSTEMS. CURRENT MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES ARE LIMITED IN THEIR SPATIAL FREQUENCY BANDPASS, THEIR ABILITY TO ...

  4. NON-CONTACT, SELF-REFERENCING FULL APERTURE METROLOGY FOR LARGE ASPHERIC MIRRORS

    SBC: Bauer Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROBLEM IS THE FABRICATION OF LARGE ASPHERIC OR GRAZING INCIDENCE MIRRORS. THE PROPOSED INNOVATION IS A GROUP OF EIGHT INNOVATIVE HARDWARE CONCEPTS AND MATHEMATICALALGORITHMS, COMBINED TO FORM A NON-CONTACTING, SELF-REFERENCING, NON-INTERFEROMETRIC METROLOGY INSTRUMENT CAPABLE OF MEASURING FIGURE ERRORS ON LARGE ASPHERIC MIRRORSTO AN ACCURACY OF A VERY SMALL FRACTION OF A WAVELENGTH OF LIGHT. ...

  5. APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Begej Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT CONCERNS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED TOUCH SENSOR FOR USE WITH TELEOPERATOR DEVICES. THE INNOVATION CONSISTS OF A COMPACT, FINGERTIP-SHAPED, OPTICAL TACTILE SENSOR WITH A SHAPE, SIZE, FORCE SENSITIVITY, AND SPATIAL RESOLUTION CORRESPONDING TO THAT OF A HUMAN FINGERTIP. WHENCOMPLEMENTED WITH A TACTILE STIMULATOR, TOGETHER THEY WOULD IMPROVE AN OPERATOR'S SENSE OF PRESENCE, THEREBY I ...

  6. STABILIZED LASERS AS SPECTRORADIOMETRIC STANDARDS FOR UV ELECTRO-OPTIC DETECTORS

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE RESEARCH AND INSTRUMENTATION            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF OUR RESEARCH PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP AN AUTOMATED FACILITY FOR CALIBRATION AND TESTING OF ELECTRO-OPTIC DETECTORS. WE HAVE DEVELOPED A VERY PRECISE AND FLEXIBLE ELECTRO-OPTIC SERVO SYSTEM WHICH PROVIDES EXTREMELY STABLE AND EASILY COMPUTER-CONTROLLED LIGHT OUTPUT FROM A WIDE RANGE OF LASERS SUITABLE FOR CALIBRATIONSIN THE VISIBLE AND NEAR INFRARED. THE MAIN AIM OF THIS PHASE I RESEARC ...

  8. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A REAL-TIME 3-D DYNAMIC ROBOT VISION SYSTEM FOR USE STS ASSEMBLY, CONSTRUCTION, AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE.

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

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A REAL-TIME 3-D DYNAMIC ROBOT VISION SYSTEM FOR USE STS ASSEMBLY, CONSTRUCTION, AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE. THE BASIC TECHNIQUE PROPOSED FOR STUDY USES THE "FLOW-FIELD" INFORMATION IMPLICIT IN ALL IMAGED SCENES INVOLVING RELATIVE MOTION BETWEEN IMAGING SENSOR AND VIEWED OBJECTS, AND USES IT TO GENERATE A DYNAMICESTIMATE ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. EEG-BASED METRIC FOR FLIGHT DECK WORKLOAD ASSESSMENT

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

    THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL EVALUATE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPH (EEG) BASED REAL-TIME METRIC FOR USE IN FLIGHT DECK WORKLOAD ASSESSMENT AND FUTURE SELF-ADAPTIVE AUTOMATED COCKPITS. THE APPROACH WILL CENTER ON THE USE OF THE STEADY-STATE VISUAL EVOKED RESPONSE (SSVER), AND INVOLVE ACTIVE PROBING UNDER A RANGE OF PERCEPTUAL AND COGNITIVE LOADING CONDITIONS. ON-LINE SSVER MEASUREM ...
