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. GENERATION OF LARGE OPTICAL SURFACES THROUGH CNC THERMALLY ASSISTED DUCTILE REGIME GRINDING

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DUCTILE CHIP FORMATION, UNLIKE THE BRITTLE CHIP FORMATION TYPICALLY OBSERVED IN DIAMOND GRINDING OF CERAMICS, DOES NOTLEAVE BEHIND SURFACE OR SUBSURFACE MICROCRACKS. ACCORDINGLY, MACHINE PROCESSES INVOLVING POLISHING CAN BE ELIMINATED FROM FABRICATION IF MATERIAL REMOVAL DURING GRINDING OCCURS THROUGH DUCTILE CHIP FORMATION. DUCTILE CHIP FORMATION IS ESSENTIALLY AN EXTRUSION PROCESS IN WHICH AN IN ...

  4. ACTIVATED THIN FILM NOBLE METAL COMBUSTIBLE GAS SENSORS

    SBC: Arizona Instrument Corpon            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DETECTING COMBUSTIBLE GASES AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES DIRECTLY FROM THE CHANGE IN WORK FUNCTION OF A THIN METAL FILM. A BROAD SPECTRUM OF ENVIRONMENTALLY IMPORTANT INORGANIC AND ORGANIC SPECIES HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR SYSTEMATIC INVESTIGATIONS ON PROMISING NOBLE-METAL FILMS. THE SENSING MECHANISM IS BELIEVED TO INVOLVE OXYGEN ...

  5. EXPERT SYSTEM TO HELP IDENTIFY INCIPIENT STUTTERING

    SBC: Bahill Intelligent Computer            Topic: N/A

    THE KNOWLEDGE OF A PANEL OF EXPERTS FOR DIAGNOSING INCIPIENTSTUTTERING AND INITIATING ITS MANAGEMENT WILL BE GATHERED AND ORGANIZED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXPERT SYSTEM. TWO VERSIONS OF THE SYSTEM WILL BE CONSTRUCTED. ONE WILL BE FORUSE AS AN INTERACTIVE TEXTBOOK BY STUDENTS IN TRAINING AS SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGISTS, AND THE OTHER WILL BE FOR USE AS AN INTERACTIVE TEXTBOOK BY PROFESSIONAL SPE ...

  6. A NATURAL OAT-DERIVED OIL SPILL DISPERSANT

    SBC: Basic Bio Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC., PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A NOVEL APPROACH TO OIL SPILL CLEANUP UTILIZING A NATURAL, OAT-DERIVED DISPERSANT. PROTEINACEOUS OAT FRACTIONS DEVELOPED BY BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC. HAVE THE ABILITY TO ABSORB SEVERAL TIMES THEIR WEIGHT OF A WIDE RANGE OF COMPOUNDS, INCLUDING HYDROPHOBIC MATERIALS SUCH AS OILS. INADDITION, THESE FRACTIONS CAN FUNCTION AS EFFECTIVE EMULSIFIERS, FORMIN ...

  7. EMPOWERMENT OF DISADVANTAGED WOMEN THROUGH MULTI-CULTURAL COOPERATIVE

    SBC: Big Sky Artisans            Topic: N/A

    THE METHODS TO BE EMPLOYED IN THIS PARTICIPATORY EXPERIMENT SEEK TO UTILIZE VISUAL AND DEMONSTRATION METHODS IN TEACHINGNEW CRAFTS AND BUSINESS SKILLS TO WOMEN WITH MULTIPLE BARRIERS, (E.G. ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEFICIENCIES; LOW SELF-ESTEEM; LACK OF PERSONAL PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS) IN ORDER TO OVERCOME THE DISSIMILARITIES OF CULTURAL AND ETHNIC VALUES AND TRADITIONAL SKILLS. IT IS THE AIM OF THIS EXPE ...

  8. SPECTRAL ANALYSIS OF STRAY LIGHT

    SBC: Breault Research Organization, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE PHASE I DEVELOPMENT WE WILL INVESTIGATE AND STUDY APPROACHES FOR THE EVALUATION OF THE STRAY LIGHT CHARACTERISTICS OF A ROTATING FREE GYRO TYPE IR SEEKER IN THE FREQUENCY DOMAIN. SINCE THIS IS A FUNDAMENTALLY NEW AREA OF STRAY LIGHT ANALYSIS, WE WILL BEGIN BY DEVELOPING INSIGHTS INTO THE UTILITY OF THIS TECHNIQUE BY EXAMINING THESIGNATURES OF VARIOUS INTERNAL (THERMAL EMISSION) AND EXTE ...

  9. THE FEASIBILITY OF USING SOLAR OPTICS IN REDUCED-G ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Brw            Topic: N/A

    THE INNOVATION INVESTIGATED IN THIS PROJECT IS THE USE OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND ALBEDO FOR TASK AND GENERAL ILLUMINATIONIN REDUCED-G ENVIRONMENTS. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE WILL BE TO DESIGN CONCEPTUALLY A SOLAR-OPTIC SYSTEM FOR A LUNAR BASE, AND TO DETERMINE ITS POWER, MASS, COST, AND PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS. THE DESIGN WILL BE COMPARED WITH A CONVENTIONAL FLUORESCENT-LIGHTING SYSTEM. THE DELIVERAB ...

  10. INTEGRATED REAL-TIME GROUND-WATER/SOIL-GAS MONITORING SYSTEM FOR ANALYSIS OF VOLATILE ORGANIC CHEMICALS

    SBC: BURGE ENVIRONMENTAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INTEGRATED GROUND-WATER/SOIL-GAS MONITORING SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED, CONSTRUCTED AND TESTED. THE BASIS OF THE INTEGRATED SYSTEM WILL BE TO PLACE THE VOLATILE ORGANIC CHEMICALS (VOCS) INTO THE SAME SAMPLE FORM, I.E. VOCS IN AN INERT GAS SUCH AS NITROGEN, FOR ANALYSIS. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS A GROUND-WATER SAMPLER WILL BE DESIGNED WHICH WILL COLLECT A GROUND-WATER SAMPLE WITHOUT PURGING THE WELLS. TH ...
