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.
SBC: Applied Sciences Topic: N/A
Phase I proposes to demonstrate an easy-to-operate, inexpensive room temperature neutron detector based on boron-doped diamond. The detector would produce an immediate signal related to low-level neutron irradiation. The concept exploits the high neutron absorption cross section of B-10, which results in excellent sensitivity. The charge carriers generated in the diamond by a neutron absorption ev ...SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Essential Research, Inc. Topic: N/A
Essential Research, Inc. proposes to build a thermophotovoltaic (TPV) electric generator using a solar concentrator heat source with thermal storage capability, a selective emitter, and a photovoltaic cell. The operation point of the heat source and selective emitter will be approximately 1700K. The moderate operating temperature was chosen to provide a system energy conversion efficiency of great ...SBIR Phase II 1996 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
