The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until June, 2020.

  1. Advanced Instrumentation for Ramjet/Scramjet Combustors


    Accurate Automation proposes to design and develop the architecture for an instrumentation system for hypersonic aircraft. We will design an instrumentation system for use in a Mach 8-10 hypersonic testbed for the HyTech engine. We will investigate the feasibility of incorporating a plasma generation capability into this instrumentation system. We will develop an enhanced instrumentation system ...

  2. Environmentally Safe, In Situ Surface-Protection of Carbon Steel Structures


    A special purpose robot to remove corrosion from the interior surfaces of the ductwork in AEDC's Engine Test Facility (ETF) will be designed and developed. The robot willimplemnt the Laser Induced Surface Improvement (LISI) process which alloys the interior surface of the ductwork with a chromimum compound. The system will include a remotely operated robot capable of traversing the ETF ductwork, ...

  3. Helmsman's Recording Accelerometer (HRA)

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) require a real time display of appr opriate data to allow the helmsman to access the damage potential to his cargo (equipment/personnel) and support his decision relative to speed and course selection when operating in rough water. Furthermore, maintenance support personnel need quantitative data to support design decisions and maintenance activities. This proposa ...

  4. Coherent Burst Ranging

    SBC: Consultec Scientific            Topic: N/A

    A novel signal encoding/decoding method for laser ranging is proposed in response to solicitation AF96-186. Coherent burst ranging utilizes low cost diode lasers to achieve high precision ranging under ambient light conditions while operating at inherently eye-safe power levels. Proprietary signal processing methods to be developed will allow single-shot range resolution of approximately 1 mm at ...

  5. Rocket Engine Analysis Codes on the Internet

    SBC: Curtis Johnson            Topic: N/A

    We propose starting a commercial Internet website that will provide access to a variety of computer codes for the purpose of analyzing rocket engines and rocket engine components. Users will be able to execute well-maintained computer codes over the Internet. The codes found on the website will be an improvement on what is currently available since they will be maintained and upgraded by a conso ...

  6. Rechargeable Lithium-ion Cells Containing Ambient Temperature Molten Salts

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

    Feasibility of rechargeable lithium-ion cells utilizing two ambient temperature molten salt electrolytes will be investigated. The anions of these electrolytes will be resistant to oxidation; the cation of one of the electrolytes will be resistant to both oxidation and reduction; therefore, in such electrolytes both cathode and anode will be electrochemically stable. The electrolytes will be pre ...

  7. Remote Automated Atmospherics Monitoring and Prediction System (RAMPS)

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed research will develop system concepts and designs for the near term prediction of inversion/crater fog or misting rain events at the Maui Space Surveillance Site (MSSS) on Haleakala, Maui, Hawaii. The time required for closure of the new 3,6m AEOS telescope dome and the high threat of rapid onset of fog and misting rains during certain atmospheric conditions on Haleakala, makes it essent ...

  8. Application of Wavelet Transform, Fractal Theory, and Statistics to Automatic Target Recognition Using L

    SBC: ORINCON            Topic: N/A

    ORINCON proposes to investigate the application of the wavelet transform, fractal analysis, and statistical measures of texture to automatic target identification (ATI) for laser radar (ladar). We intend to use multiscale edge analysis (MEA) based on the wavelet transform to decompose a ladar intensity image into an "edge" component and a complementary "texture" component. The boundary informati ...
