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 measurement technique for Carbon Monoxide in exhaled breath as a Non-Invasive screening test for Asthma

    SBC: 2B TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Asthma is a major health problem facing the US, and the rest of the world's population. What is needed, both for the military as well as the civilian population, are rapid screening tests that would reduce the demand for intensive examinations. Exhaled breath monitoring is thus a new tool in the non-invasive assessment of airway inflammation which may be present before the onset of airway obstruct ...

  2. Field Portable B1BS Instrument to Detect Multi-Multi-Metals in Soil and Lead in Paint

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

    This proposal describes the development of an instrument based on laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for the detection of lead in paint and soil that will have both military and commercial applications. The Phase I instrument will be similar to multi-species, portable LIBS instruments built by Dr. David Cremers at Los Alamos National Laboratory that utilize a spectrograph/charge coupled ...

  3. PZT Ceramic Fiber Process for High Performance Actuators

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMETRICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Piezoelectric ceramics in sensors have achieved substantial market penetration. These parts are used widely for heat and climate control, hydrophones, flow sensors, medical and industrial sensing and accelerometers but they have been unsuccessful in gaining significant use in actuators. It generally is felt that material restrictions, precluding development of actuator-sized displacement strokes ...

  4. Failure Modeling and Visualization in High Assurance Systems


    System dependability is an increasingly important characteristic of mission critical computer systems. These systems must be maintained in a state of readiness to perform critical functions, and must be able to perform these functions correctly despite the presence of imperfections in system components, and in the environments in which the systems operate. Automated tools are needed to assist in ...

  5. Augmenting CORBA with High Assurance Data Integrity Mechanisms


    The ultimate goal of the proposed R&D is to design, develop and validate innovative CORBA-based software security services and compatible hardware architectures which provide high assurance for multi-level secure (MLS) network applications. The proposed approach is innovative in that it is based on the emerging OMG Security Services Specification (SSS) plus a proprietary technique for maintaining ...

    SBC: ANSOFT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Accurate modeling of active RF devices is a critical component in circuit and system design. In the past the generated model's accuracy depended heavily on the expertise of the scientist who was performing the model extraction. This proposal develops algorithms and scripting planning for reducing this labor intensive device model extraction process to a PC based automated system. The user, thr ...

  7. Conducting Polymer Based Actively IR Modulating Electrochromics

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In recent and ongoing work, this firm has developed, for a classified IR-counter-measures applications, large area, active electrochromic flat panel displays (FPDs), based on unique Conducting Polymer (CP) systems and a unique device design. These are very thin (less than 3 mm) and flexible, and exhibit high contrast in the mid/-far-IR (up to 93% Diffuse Reflectance range at 10 microns). Switchi ...

  8. Modeling and Simulation Techniques for Large-Scale Communications Modeling

    SBC: Atlantic Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Modeling and simulation (M&S) provides the potential of serving as a cost-effective expedient for developing, acquiring, testing, and fielding new technologies for the future battlefield-provided the limitations of existing tools and techniques can be overcome. As the Army focal point for communications M&S, the U.S. Army Communications-Electronic Command (CECOM) has the lead for performing M&S t ...

  9. Transition to the Objective C4T Modeling and Simulation Enviroment

    SBC: Atlantic Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Modeling and simulation (M&S) is profoundly affecting the way the Army develops, acquires, tests, and fields new technologies for the future battlefield. While M&S has made a significant impact on Army digitization initiatives to date, fully realizing its benefits in the research, development, and acquisition (RDA); advanced concepts requirements (ACR); and training, exercises, and military operat ...

  10. Chemical Analysis in a Planar Geometry: Elements of a Functionally Integrated System

    SBC: BIOARRAY SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    Bio Array Solutions (BAS) proposes to apply its novel platform technology of light-controlled Electrokinetic Assembly of Particles near Surfaces (LEAPS) to develop an analytical system in a planar, "on-chip" format. Combining AC (and/or DC) electric fields with interactive light control, LEAPS provides a tool set of fundamental operations to control the transport and positioning of particles and ...
