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. JOINED WING AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Aca Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE JOINED WING IS A NEW TYPE OF AIRCRAFT CONFIGURATION WHICH EMPLOYS TANDEM WINGS ARRANGED TO FORM DIAMOND SHAPES IN BOTH PLAN AND FRONT VIEWS. WIND TUNNEL TESTS AND FINITE- ELEMENT STRUCTURAL ANALYSES SHOW THAT THE JOINED WING PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES OVER A COMPARABLE CONVENTIONAL WING: LIGHTER WEIGHT AND HIGHER STIFFNESS, LESSINDUCED DRAG, LOWER WAVE DRAG, HIGHER TRIMMED MAXIMUM LIFT ...

  2. AUTOMATIC CONTAMINATION EVALUATOR FOR OPTICAL SURFACES

    SBC: Acton Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT SHUTTLE FLIGHTS HAVE SHOWN THAT SIGNIFICANT TEMPORARYOR PERMANENT DEGRADATION OF OPTICAL SURFACES CAN OCCUR IN FLIGHT. SEVERAL OSMIUM-COATED SAMPLES, FLOWN ON SHUTTLE FLIGHT STS 5, EXPERIENCED A PERMANENT LOSS OF REFLECTIVITY BY FACTORS OF 2-3 IN THE VACUUM ULTRAVIOLET PORTION OF THE SPECTRUM. OTHER COATING MATERIALS AND WINDOWS CARRIED ABOARD EARLIER SHUTTLE FLIGHTS SUFFERED LESS OR EVEN N ...

  4. THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE CLOUD PROPERTIES FROM LANDSAT 4 THEMATIC MAPPER (TM) DATA BY COMBINING A SPATIAL COHERENCE APPROACH WITH A VARIETY OF CLOUD PARAMETER RETRIEVAL METHODS.

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE CLOUD PROPERTIES FROM LANDSAT 4 THEMATIC MAPPER (TM) DATA BY COMBINING A SPATIAL COHERENCE APPROACH WITH A VARIETY OF CLOUD PARAMETER RETRIEVAL METHODS. THE TM HAS SEVEN SPECTRAL BANDS WHICH, IN PRINCIPLE, ALLOW CLOUD AMOUNT, HEIGHT, PHASE, AND THICKNESS TO BE RETRIEVED. CLOUD PARTICLE SIZE MAY ALSO BE RETRIEVABLE. THE SPATIAL COHERENCE APPROACH WILL ACCOUNT FOR PARTIAL B ...

  5. RAYLEIGH SCATTERING AS A HIGH TEMPERATURE COMBUSTION DIAGNOSTIC METHOD

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT EVALUATES THE USE OF RAYLEIGH SCATTERING TECHNIQUES FOR USE AS A TEMPERATURE MONITOR IN THE SEVERE ENVIRONMENT OF GAS TURBINES. POTENTIAL ADVANTAGES OF THIS TECHNIQUE OVER ALL OTHER PRESENTLY USED METHODS ARE HIGH ACCURACY (+/-10K), EASE OF INSTALLATION, HIGH SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL RESOLUTION, AND NONINTRUSIVE OPERATION. THIS PHASEOF THE PROGRAM CONSISTS OF DETAILED FEASIBILITY CALCULAT ...

  6. THIS IS A PROJECT TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF A TECHNIQUE FOR FORMING HOLOGRAMS FOR THREE DIMENSIONAL IMAGES OF COMPUTER-GENERATED OBJECTS IN REAL-TIME POINT BY POINT.

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IS A PROJECT TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF A TECHNIQUE FOR FORMING HOLOGRAMS FOR THREE DIMENSIONAL IMAGES OF COMPUTER-GENERATED OBJECTS IN REAL-TIME POINT BY POINT. THIS PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUE IS A METHOD FOR QUICKLY MOVING POINTS OF LIGHT THROUGH A THREE-DIMENSIONAL OBJECT VOLUME. THIS NEW METHOD, ALONG WITH THE YOUNG TECHNOLOGY OF REAL-TIME THERMO-PLASTIC RECORDING MATERIALS, WILL OVERCOME ...

  9. LONG LIFETIME, SPACEBORNE, CLOSED-CYCLE CRYOCOOLER

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES A CONCEPT FOR A CONTINUOUS REFRIGERATOR FOR OPERATION IN ZERO-GRAVITY WHILE COOLING SENSORS TO A TEMPERATURE DOWN TO 0.3 KELVIN. NO CAPABILITY SUCH AS THIS CURRENTLY EXISTS. THE CONCEPT ASSUMES A SUPERFLUID HELIUM DEWAR (1.5 KELVIN) AS THE HIGH-TEMPERATUREHEAT SINK. A SUPERFLUID HELIUM-4 STAGE, CALLED A "VORTEX" REFRIGERATOR, SERVES AS AN INTERMEDIATE COOLING SYSTEM TO IN ...
