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. An Ontogenic Polynomial Neural Network/Expert System Modeling Evnironment for Chaotic Avionics Systems Behavior Prediction

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  2. A NOVEL VERY-LOW-COST AIRBREATHING PROPULSION SYSTEM

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, AIRBREATHING PROPULSION SYSTEMS WHICH OPERATE IN THE HIGH SUBSONIC REGIME ARE EXPENSIVE, COMPLEX, HEAVY AND USE PERISHABLE FUELS. TO OVERCOME THESE LIMITATIONS, A NOVEL PROPULSION CONCEPT BASED ON A PULSE DETONATION ENGINE (PDE) OR A CONVENTIONAL RAMJET COMBUSTOR (CRC) COUPLED WITH A BORON SOLID FUELED HYBRID GAS GENERATOR (HGG) IS PROPOSED. THE INNOVATION DRAWS FROM RECENT SUCCESSES IN ...

  4. Infrared Differential Reflectometer for Rapid Inspection of Aircraft Subsurface Corrosion

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    Subsurface corrosion has been implicated in a number of incidents in which aircraft have demonstrated a loss of structural integrity leading to emergency procedures and in one case, the loss of human life. Although several techniques are available to evaluate subsurface corrosion, no method has shown the ability to scan rapidly a wide area of the aircraft to alert maintenance personnel to the need ...

  5. ANALYSIS AND CONTROL OF MAGNETIC BEARINGS USING NEURAL NETWORKS FOR TURBINE ENGINE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force has identified a need for more advanced digital control methodologies to make feasible the application of active magnetic bearings to turbine engines. Achieving the goals for enhanced turbine rotor performance necessitates improved bearing control with associated compact size/weight, fault tolerance, and minimum power consumption. Conventional control methods are inadequate because o ...

  6. Refractory Composite Convection/Transpiration (CONTRAN) Cooling for NASP Engine Combustor

    SBC: ANALYTICAL SERVICES & MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An innovative actively cooled structure concept is proposed which integrates proven cooling techniques and state-0f-the-art fabrication methods to extend the maximum combustor wall temperature, thereby reducing cooling requirements and aircraft weight while improving engine performance. Specifically, CONvective and TRANspiration cooling(CONTRAN) are uniquely combined, relying on hydrogen coolant t ...

  7. Unified Control Concept for Advanced Flight Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The position control of aircraft is inherently a two-point boundary-value problem, and aircraft rate and attitude control are desirably treated as such. The aircraft maneuvers from an initial state vector at a given initial time to a final state vector at a given or optimiized final time. The final state is achieved in a manner that minimizes cost functions such as the time integral of induced dra ...

  9. Integrated Intelligent Structures for Suppressing Static Aerothermoelastic Deformations and Flutter of Panels

    SBC: C & C Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  10. POTENTIAL FOR OZONE ENHANCEMENT IN RELATION TO SUPERSONIC FLIGHTS

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A LARGE DEPLETION OF ATMOSPHERIC OZONE IS OCCURRING EACH AUSTRAL SPRING OVER ANTARCTICA. REFERRED TO AS THE OZONE HOLE PROBLEM, THE CONCERN IS THAT OZONE-POOR AIR FROM THE ANTARCTIC STRATOSPHERE IS MIXING WITH AIR AT LOWER LATITUDES. FURTHERMORE, THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT THE SIZE OF THE HOLE COULD INCREASE AND WILL CONTINUE TO FORM FOR THE NEXT 90 YEARS EVEN IF CFC RELEASES ARE CONTROLLED. SUCH ...
