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. Expert Polynomial Network Turbine Engine Diagnostician

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this effort is to demonstrate a prototype advanced diagnostic system for the T800 turboshaft engine using a hybrid polynomial network and production-rule expert system. The resulting system will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a revolutionary diagnostic capability which can model the engine at a system level, detect failures before they become signficant isolate faults, ...

  2. Autonomous, Hand-Held Satellite Location and Pointing System (SLAPS)

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

    Adroit Systems, Inc. proposes to develop a hand-held , autonomous Satellite Location and Point System (SLAPS). The system will store communication satellites' ephemeris data to calculate and display visibility windows. SLAPS also will use this data to calculate the azimuth and elevation angle to the communication satellite of interest. The system will use interferometry of Global Positioning Syste ...

  3. THIN FILM SENSORS TO EVALUATE CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL THREATS TO ARMY STRUCTURES

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

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS HAVE LED TO THE NECESSITY FOR BATTLE READINESS IN A REGION WHERE CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL WARFARE AGENTS HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED IN THE PAST. AT PRESENT, LITTLE ATTENTION HAS BEEN PAID TO METHODS FOR IDENTIFYING THE CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL CONDITIONS OF FREE STANDING STRUCTURES. THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS THE DEVELOPMENT OF OPTICAL SENSORS BASED ON THE INTERACTIO ...

  5. Digital Speckle Imaging for In Situ Monitoring and Characterization of Laser-processed Refractory Coatings

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

    The use of high-temperature laser densification/annealing techniques for enhancing materials surface characteristics has opened new opportunities in material/laser-process diagnostic instrumentation. Important issues in fabrication of reproducible refractory ceramic coating film lies in understanding of the interrelationship between processing parameters and surface properties. To respond to this ...

  6. Refined Reduced Order Models for Estimation of Terrain Induced Loads in Flexible Vehicles

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

    The new aerospace materials are finding applications in the design of military armor vehicles. However, the effect on ride quality, fire control, and internal structural loads due to the increased flexibility of these new vehicles must be ascertained by dynamic analysis. The size of models required to simulate these flexible body effect can be prohibitive from both cost and time perspective. There ...

  7. MONOLITHIC SCANNING ANTENNA

    SBC: ASTRON WIRELESS TECHNOLIGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL APPROACH TO LOW COST SHAPED BEAM SCANNING FOR MONOLITHIC STRUCTURES IS PROPOSED. THE TECHNIQUE MAKE USE OF RADOME MATERIAL COSTING OF THE CONVENTIONAL MONOLITHIC STRUCTURE; THE RADOME ITSELF IS COMPOSED OF A COMPOSITE OF HIGH DIELECTRIC CONSTANT/MAGNETICALLY SENSITIVE MATERIAL-REFERED TO AS "DIELECTROMAGNETIC" (DEM) MATERIAL. THE DEM MATERIAL CHARACTERISTICS ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A SHAPE ...

  8. Ionospheric Propagation Predictions Using Satellite Beacon

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

    This receiver sets forth a plan to utilize commercial GPS receivers for real time ionospheric prediction at a remote location. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of using TEC measurements and evaluate the accuracy and applicability of these measurements for improvements in HF propagation. For this we assess the predictability of the slab thickness parameter T towards solar and geophysica ...

  10. SERA Tester Application for Process Control

    SBC: Colonial Circuits, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This effort would develop the laboratory set-up of the solderability tester into a real time statistical process control tool in the manufacture of printed wiring boards. By correlation of SERA test data to copper contamination levels in the solder plating bath; and the application of statistical process control techniques, real time feedback to the plating process would be established.
