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. Signal Processing for Emerging Wireless Technologies

    SBC: 3DB LABS, INC.            Topic: AF05103

    The advent of third generation (3G) wireless communications is producing exponential growth of wireless information exchange. 3G systems provide increases in bandwidth, data rate, number of users and volume of traffic. Furthermore, complex modern modulation techniques and severe co-channel environments push the envelope of processing requirements. Particularly challenging is the CDMA2000 standar ...

  3. Photochemical Cyclopolymerization of Polyimides in Ultraviolet Ridgidizing Composites for Use in Inflatable Structures

    SBC: Advanced Coatings International            Topic: X202

    This innovation uses photochemical cyclopolymerization of polyimides to manufacture ultraviolet rigidizable composites for use in RIS (ridgidizing inflatable) structures. Sunlight initiated polymerization (UV polymerization) has been identified as a promising method for ridgidizing composites for inflatable space structures. The use of in-situ polymerized polyimides will provide superior dimension ...
