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. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH SENSITIVITY XENON LEAK DETECTOR

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RADIOISOTOPE THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS (RTGS) ARE COMMONLY USED AS POWER SOURCES FOR REMOTE ENVIRONMENTS. THESE UNITS USE XENON AS A HEAT TRANSFER AGENT. IT IS ALSO NECESSARY TO FILL THE RTGS WITH HELIUM TO A 5% CONCENTRATION LEVEL, SINCE THE HELIUM SERVES AS A LEAK DETECTION AGENT. HOWEVER, HELIUM ALSO CAUSES A 5% TO 10% DECREASE IN THE ELECTRICAL EFFICIENCY OF THE RTG. IT IS THEREFORE DESIRABLE ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTI-GAS PROCESS FOR HOT-GAS-STREAM CLEANUP

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC. PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A CONTINUOUS INSITU ANALYZER THAT IS CAPABLE OF MONITORING THE CONCENTRATION OF AMMONIA IN A COAL GASIFICATION GAS STREAM TO PROVIDE A PROCESS CONTROLLER FOR HOT GAS CLEANUP SYSTEMS. A PHOTODIODE ARRAY ULTRA VIOLET (UV) ABSORPTION SPECTROMETER WILL BE EVALUATED AT TEMPERATURES AND PRESSURES REPRESENTATIVE OF GASIFIER PROCESSES. THIS TECHNIQUE IS PRACTICAL ...

  3. EVALUATION OF A COST-EFFECTIVE CATALYST FOR USE IN COMBINED SO2, NOX, AND PARTICULATE CONTROL SYSTEMS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE SUCCESSFUL DEVELOPMENT OF A SINGLE AIR POLLUTION CONTROLDEVICE FOR SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2), NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX), AND PARTICULATE CONTROL CAN PROVIDE A COST-EFFECTIVE MEANS FOR COMPLIANCE WITH 1990 AMENDMENTS TO THE CLEAN AIR ACT FOR COAL-FIRED UTILITY BOILERS. THE TECHNOLOGY FOR COMBINED COLLECTION OF BOTH SO2 AND PARTICULATES IS READILY AVAILABLE. HOWEVER, TO COMBINE NOX CONTROL WITH SUCH SYST ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A CONTINUOUS ISOCYANATES MONITOR

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF DETECTING AND MONITORING ISOCYANATES IN WORKPLACE AIR AT OR BELOW THE THRESHOLD LIMIT VALUE (TLV) 0.02 PPM USING A REAL-TIME MONITORING TECHNIQUE. THE INSTRUMENT WILL DETECT AND ANALYZE FOR ISOCYANATES IN BOTH VAPOR AND AEROSOL FORM AND WILL SERVE AS A WORKPLACE MONITOR FOR ISOCYANATES TO REPLACE ...

  7. SUPERCRITICAL CRYOGENIC SELF CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS

    SBC: Aerospace Design & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS (SCBA) CAN BE DESIGNED WHICH CAN USE LIQUID AIR FOR FILLING, OPERATE AT AMBIENT CONDITIONS OR UNDER WATER, BE ATTITUDE INDEPENDENT, AND CAN BE STORED WITH NO ENRICHMENT IN OXYGEN. BY USE OF THE PROPER DESIGN CRITERIA IT WILL MEET OSHA AND NISOH REQUIREMENTS. THE TECHNOLOGY REQUIRED TO MAKE THIS SCBA IS FAMILIAR TO THESPACE PROGRAM. THIS IS THE USE OF A SUPERCRI ...

  8. A HIGH RELIABILITY OXYGEN/JTX CRYOGENIC REFRIGERATOR

    SBC: Aerospace Design & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    USING TECHNOLOGY NOW IN EXISTENCE AND NOW BEING DEVELOPED IT IS POSSIBLE TO BUILD A HIGH RELIABILITY, CRYOGENIC OXYGEN REFRIGERATOR. THE TEMPERATURE RANGE IN WHICH THE REFRIGERATOR WOULD FUNCTION WOULD BE CONTROLLABLE BETWEEN 70 AND 140 KELVIN. THE BASIS FOR THIS REFRIGERATION CYCLE WOULD BE CERAMIC ELECTROLYTE TECHNOLOGY BY WHICH OXYGEN CAN BE COMPRESSED USING AN ELECTRIC POTENTIAL ACROSS THE CER ...

  9. UGT INSTRUMENTATION FOR ELECTRICAL PARAMETER MEASUREMENT

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP FIELD INSTRUMENTATION SUITABLE FOR USE IN AN UNDERGROUND (UGT) OR ABOVEGROUND (AGT) RADIATION TEST ENVIRONMENT, FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS AS THEY RECOVER FROM IRRADIATION. THE EFFORT WILL CONSIST OF SAMPLE HOLDER AND INSTRUMENTATION DESIGN, RESPONSE ANALYSIS, AND THE FABRICATION OF A LABORATORY TEST SETUP TO SHOW TECHNIQUE FEASIBILITY.

  10. SENSITIVE LOW Z STRAIN GAGE

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS ACTIVITY WILL INVESTIGATE THE USE OF PVDF FILM FOR USE AS A LOW Z STRAIN GAGE. THE PVDF MATERIAL IS AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE MORE SENSITIVE THAN PZT AS A PIEZOELECTRIC MATERIAL AND HAS AN ATOMIC NUMBER MUCH LOWER (LOW Z) THAN PRESENT RESISTIVE STRAIN GAGE MATERIALS. THEREFORE, PVDF AS A STRAIN GAGE WILL BE CAPABLE OF MEASURING MUCH LOWER LEVELS OF STRAIN THAN PRESENT GAGING TECHNIQUES, AND WILL ...
