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. A Decision Support Tool to Investigate Emerging Complex Problems in the Dairy Industry

    SBC: AG INFO MANAGEMENT INC            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to augment the DairyORACLE simulation program with additive and structural changes that will facilitate its use as the "infrastructural" model for problem solving in the dairy sector. Producers as well as researchers are constantly proposing changes in inputs to the dairy operation. A producer must select from an ever increasing array of products for use on their dai ...

  2. Novel multilayer MIM Damascene Capacitor

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal is for a (Metal Insulator Metal) MIM multilayer capacitor design that achieves higher capacitance density through the use of large electrode surface area within a small chip dimension utilizing a high-k dielectric in a multi-Damascenefabricated approach consistent with low temperature process requirements. Capacitors, either realized as discrete elements in thin-film technologies, o ...

  3. Foundry Flexfet(c)SOI, a Commercial Revolution in Rad-Hard Processing

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Low cost, high-frequency, radiation-tolerant wafer fabrication for next generation electronic circuits is limited by domestic manufacturing capability. General availability of inherently radiation tolerant silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process technology tothe fabless design community is limited to only one viable domestic source. This proposal presents the opportunity to create U.S. foundry manufa ...

  4. High-k Dielectric Research for the Development of High Performance Compact Capacitors

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Development of compact, high energy, pulse power capacitors is the gating technology for Pulse Forming Networks (PFNs) used in directed energy and kinetic energy weapons and microwave systems. This proposal is to explore high permittivity (high-қ)dielectric films and superior electrode materials in a solid state configuration to obtain capacitors that have high voltage breakdown and low lea ...

  5. 1 kW Man-portable Hybrid-Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: Automotive Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Work is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of a catalytic ignition system that can be retrofitted to a light-weight, silent-running, 1 kW generator, allowing it to be satisfactorily operated on heavy fuels such as diesel and JP-8. Gensetmodifications will be closely allied to catalytic igniter technology pioneered by Automotive Resources Incorporated that enables alternative fuel combustion ...

  6. 1kW Diesel Burning Man Portable Hybrid Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: Automotive Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Army has indicated significant need for lightweight, heavy fuel engines for use in a wide variety of battlefield missions. The Catalytic Ignition System (SmartPlugTM) developed and patented by Automotive Resources, Inc. (ARI) promises to fulfill theArmy's "One Fuel Forward" requirement without the need for replacing the gasoline engine with a new engine design. ARI had demonstrated the abilit ...

  7. Development of an Ultrasound-Mediated Delivery System for the Mass Immunization of Fish

    SBC: Clear Springs Foods, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Losses due to disease in world aquaculture are estimated to be in the billions of dollars annually. Vaccination is effective in preventing disease for many fish pathogens, however, lack of cost-effective methods for delivering vaccines prevents vaccination from becoming more prevalent in aquaculture. We have shown how ultrasound can enhance the uptake of both dissolved compounds and particles from ...

  8. Management of Turfgrass Diseases and Thatch by Streptomyces and Fungi

    SBC: Innovative BioSystems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Problems associated with turfgrasses include thatch accumulation and fungal diseases such as dollar spot, brown patch, and Pythium crown/root rot. Excessive thatch accumulation, in turn, exacerbates disease prevalence and degrades turf quality. Approximately 40 million acres are planted in turf in the U.S. About 20% of all fungicides used in the U.S. are applied to turfgrasses, which is greater th ...

  9. Durability Improvement of Lightweight Track and Suspension Components for Armored Vehicles by Using Ti-6Al-4V

    SBC: Material Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The objective is to replace AAAV aluminum idler wheels with titanium to allow better wheel and spoke designs for mud-clogging prevention. Cost and weight limitations are the main constraint. The weight limitations will be met by designing the wheel usingfinite element calculations. Titanium is heavier, but since it is stronger, less is necessary, thus producing a wheel close to the current alu ...

  10. An Extensible Framework for Rapid Fuselet Composition

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design an object-oriented scripting language that enables the discovery and rapid assembly of publish-subscribe fuselets through ontology-aware query on both data and program metadata, to implement it in an extensible manner by mapping ontoexisting interpreters and runtime infrastructures using source-to-source-transformation and library extensions, and to design and implement monito ...
