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. Miniaturized Cast Metal Integrated Components

    SBC: American Industrial Casting,            Topic: N/A

    Investment castings have well served both the military and commercial markets in such areas as waveguides and splitters for microwave applications, and for connectors, housings, heat sinks and mechanical parts for electronics, optical, instrumentation, and medical devices. Tomorrow's higher RF millimeter wave and communications electronics products, and more compact optical, instrumentation and m ...

  2. Continuous "Micro-sorting" of Waste Plastics in a Liquid-Fluidized Bed Classifier (LFBC)

    SBC: Covofinish Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a new process for the continuous separation of w aste plastic particles by type into purified streams for sale and recycling is proposed. This approach is based on the segregation of particles by density in liquid-fluidized bed classifiers (LFBC). The primary objective of the proposed work is "proof-of-concept" for the LFBC approach; that is, the experimental demonstratio ...

  3. Rural Alaska Solid/Sanitary Waste Disposal Alternative

    SBC: Dean Environmental Recycling,            Topic: N/A

    Current handling of solid and sanitary wastes, in rural Alaska, is causing air pollution and groundwater contamination. Efforts to recycle have not broadened enough to effectively correct the situation. It is possible to implement the use of composting technology to decrease the amount of material flooding the waste stream and reduce pollutants. Each small town may not have the resources to pur ...

  4. High Surface Area Carbon Electrodes for Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors

    SBC: EVANS CAPACITOR COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    A novel method for preparing carbon electrode structures having applications in electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs) is described. The method for preparing these structures employs carbon (graphite) nano fiber materials and results in an electrode having both high surface area and high electronic conductivity; two essential characteristics for EDLC electrodes. The fabrication process ...

  5. Multisource/Multireceiver Tactical Decision Aid Marine Acoustics, Inc. (MAI)

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Marine Acoustics, Inc., proposes applying the team's operational expertise and tactical decision aid (TDA) technology to the development of a TDA that innovatively applies tactical oceanography principles to the employment of multistatic ASW assets. The foundation of the TDA module architecture will be the integration of innovative parametric sonar equation matrix analysis techniques with existin ...

  6. Remote Monitor and Control Process Development for Bioremediation Projects in Rural Areas

    SBC: New Horizons Telecom, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Remediation of petroleum contraminated soils for remote site cleanup typically involves two options. Due to the remoteness and inaccessiblity of many of Alaska's rural contaminated sites, off-site treatment is often impractical. The remediation option chosen at any site is based on the availability of the area for on-site treatement, time for completion, and money. Many of Alaska's contaminated ...

  7. Single Longitudinal Mode Distributed Feedback Fiber Optics Laser

    SBC: Optigain, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A true single longitudinal mode distributed feedback (DFB) fiber laser will be developed. The first and only, a preliminary demonstration of this laser has just been published, but it is not truly single frequency. We shall develop and commercialize the world's first DFB fiber laser with Bragg gratings written directly onto the core of the fiber. We shall implement an innovative external technique ...

  8. Tunable 1 Micron Fiber Laser

    SBC: Optigain, Inc            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I study, we will demonstrate high power, continuous wave (CW) single spatial mode laser action at the 1 um wavelength. There are two innovative aspects in our proposal: the incorporation of commercially available very high power, not necessarily single mode, semiconductor laser diodes as pump sources; and, a novel single mode fiber, doped with the appropriate rare earth ions. The pum ...

  9. Automated Broadband Identification of Bottom Fish

    SBC: Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc. (SFS) proposes the design, development, demonstration, deployment and evaluation of an automated broadband sonar fish identification system that will assist commercial fishermen and fisheries manager in bycatch reduction. Although the technology developed in this project is generic to al fisheries, the following exposition will emphasize bycatch in the Bering Sea ...

  10. Neural Acoustic Temperature Profiler

    SBC: Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of Phase I of this project is to determine the feasibility of developing an acoustic instrument for measuring temperature profiles using a combination of neural networks and broadband sonar. "Broadband sonar provides the necessary comparative information between frequencies to provide a great deal of the requisite information for determining temperature from sound speed. Because the ...
