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. Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection of Fastener Holes in Thick Multiple-Layer Structures

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Budgetary constraints on defense spending have highlighted the importance ofprograms aimed at extending the service life of aging aircraft. Nondestructiveinspection is a key component of such programs. One important capabilityis the detection of cracking and corrosion around fastener holes. Phased arrayultrasonics offer a novel and powerful solution. They can steer an ultrasonic beamat various ang ...

  2. High Efficiency 10K Cryocooler for Space Application

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

    A compact, reliable, efficient and inexpensive crycooler requiring less than 1kW of power for 2W of colling at 10K will be developed and demonstrated. This performance is at least twice as efficient as the best current state-of-the-art for smalllow-temperature crycoolers. The proposed technical approach, whose feasibility has been investigated and confirmed in Phase I of this project, is to appl ...

  3. Novel Antireflective Coating to Improve Microelectronic Processings

    SBC: AST PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    One of the primary processes used for device patterning in the electronics industry is deep ultaviolet photolithography. However, the highly reflective substrates require reduction of this reflectivity to minimize standing waves and to maintain tightdimensional control. Most of te industry uses anti-reflective coatings (ARCs) which are applied using the spin coating technique. Unfortunately, spi ...

  4. Fusing Terrain and Sensor Data During Spectral Feature Extraction

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

    Terrain data needs on the battlefield are generating greater military requirements for new, rapid feature mapping capabilities. Unfortunately, current methods are woefully inadequate to meet the needs of the modern digitized battlefield in which thecommander must have the ability to rapidly obtain accurate terrain information and topographic products. Terrain Reasoning methods will allow more ra ...

  5. Low loss, polarization insensitive, high speed fiber optic switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High performance fiberoptic switches are in great demand for use in optical communication networks and modern defense systems. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and highreliability. Based on the successful development of a state-of-the-art high speed and highly stable 1x1 switch, Agiltron Corporation proposes t ...

  8. Novel Wear Resistant and Thermally Insulative Materials

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

    The Phase I effort successfully integrated micro-APD arrays into a detection system that can accommodate many microscale analysis platforms, including genomic-based systems on glass, silicon, plastic and PDMS (poly-dimethylsiloxane). We demonstrated thefeasibility of our detection platform by developing a highly sensitive, low-cost prototype system, which consisted of an LED excitation source, an ...

  10. CZT Arrays for Ultra-fast X-ray Imaging

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

    Cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) is the room temperature x-ray detector of choice for non-destructive imaging applications. Monolithic arrays with high count rate capability (> 1 x 106 counts/pixel) are required for ultra-fast hyperspectral x-ray imaging.Presently, the yield of CZT arrays which can perform hyperspectral imaging in milliseconds, is very low. Most monolithic arrays suffer from
