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. Compliant Brush Shroud Casing Development for Aircraft Engine Compressors

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPONENTS & MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase II program will optimize the design and manufacturing process of a compliant brush shroud casing. Recent tests at Wright Laboratories with staged brush seals have demonstrated significantly increased blade to shroud rub tolerance of acompliant casing. Phase I of the program is expected to demonstrate the feasibility of two innovative brush shroud designs with lower cost and we ...

  3. Innovative Materials for Lightweight Armor

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose synergistically implementing two emerging ballistic materials,aluminum foams and 3-D woven polymeric composites, in theconstruction of lightweight armor with ceramic facing. In the recentballistic studies both materials have separately demonstrated improvementsin ceramic-faced armor. 3-D woven FRP enables to reduce dynamic deflection,localize damage and increase multiple hit capabilit ...

  4. Implantable Noise-Based Sensory Enhancement Devices

    SBC: AFFERENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Stochastic resonance (SR) is a counterintuitive phenomenon in which slight amounts of noise imparted to a system actually increase its sensitivity to weak stimuli. SR has been shown to produce a demonstrable effect in human sensory cells. In both healthy young and clinical subjects - elderly, diabetics, and stroke sufferers - a notable increase in tactile and proprioceptive sensitivity is seen whe ...

  5. ENHANCING THE TACTILE SENSE USING MECHANICAL NOISE

    SBC: AFFERENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Stochastic resonance (SR), a counterintuitive phenomenon in which slight amounts of environmental noise actually increase the discernability of signals or stimuli, produces a demonstrable effect in human sensory cells. In both healthy young and clinical subjects- elderly, diabetics, and stroke sufferers-a significant increase in tactile and proprioceptive sensitivity is noted when electrical or me ...

  7. Eddy current detection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lock fastener

    SBC: ALBANY INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop novel eddy current probes based on spin dependenttunneling (SDT) magnetoresistive (MR) sensors to enhance the probability ofdetection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lok fasteners. Preliminaryresults show that the use of shaped excitation coils, together with extremelysensitive SDT sensors properly positioned above the structure under inspection,provides a si ...

  8. Electrochemical Enzyme Immunoassay to Test Blood HBV

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

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):Millions of Americans are infected by the hepatitis B virus (HBV)-many of whom have no reason to believe they are infected. There is a need to track down America's millions of HBV victims-as well as a corresponding need for innovative technology to test blood for HBV. HBV is clearly a national medical priority. ...

  10. New Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Scoring System

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

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Identifying the roles of variable individual genetic factors can revolutionize approaches to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human disease. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most frequent DNA sequence variations that affect human health, and better methods for scoring known SNPs in the human popul ...
