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. Machine Vision Based Multisensor Inspection for Microelectronics

    SBC: Acuity Imaging Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the implementation of improved processes for inspection of micro-electronic assemblies based upon integration and fusion of data from different sensor modalities. Initially the project will be targeted on developing a system that combines data from a CCD camera operating with visible light, a micro focus X-rays imaging system, and a laser based pointrange sensor. Although ...

  2. Easy-To-Use General-Purpose Machine Vision System Based on a Massively Parallel Processing Engine

    SBC: Acuity Imaging Inc            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the overall SBIR program is to combine the flexibility and ease-of use of Acuity's general-purpose standard computer platform based machine vision systems with the raw processing power of Adatptive Solutions' massively parallel hardware to produce easy-to-use PC/Windows based high performance machine vision systems that can be used by manufacturing engineers and factory floor pers ...

  3. Hand-Held DNA Biosensor to Detect Toxins

    SBC: ALDERON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are many cases where detection of the presence of a DNA or RNA sequence in a sample can rapidly and unambiguously identify bacterial and viral bioagents of concern or be used in the diagnosis of both inherited and infectious diseases. Traditional DNA/RNA analysis methods are not applicable for field-use or a routine environment because they require complex procedures, large instruments, and ...

  4. VHDL Behavioral Synthesis Tool for Low Power Based on FRITS


    Low power has been recently elevated to one of the most critical issues in circuit design, affecting circuit reliability, battery life, and heat sinking. In spite of this demand, surprisingly little support from CAD vendors exists for automated low power circuit design. Alternative System Concepts (ASC) and Princeton University propose to design and develop a much needed power optimizing design ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Full-Spectrum Classification Algorithms for Broadband Passive Sonar

    SBC: Carolinian Systems Research            Topic: N/A

    Algorithms will be developed for the detection and classification of broadband signals by passive sonar. Principal interest is in shallow-water applications. The algorithms will be based on an approach that does not require knowledge of data statistics, yet provides an approximation to the likelihood ratio. Both signal-adaptive and non-adaptive versions will be developed. Computational evalua ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Submarine Electrical Hull Penetrators/Connectors

    SBC: D. G. O'brien, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent trends in submarine design indicate the need for-locating more electrical components, such as propulsion motors and actuators, outside the pressure hull. As a result, there is a need for electrical hull penetrators/connectors which can transfer high currents or high voltages through the submarine's pressure hull. We propose to review the capabilities and limitations of existing penetrator/ ...

  10. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Electronic Decoy Payload

    SBC: Dedicated Electronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Enemy forces can be crippled quickly at the beginning of a war by separating the enemies command and control structure from its combat forces and other elements of its defensive network. A false target generator has the potential to saturate or tie up an enemies air defense net and increase survivability of our own airborne assets. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an optimum candidate for a dec ...
