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. HIGH PERFORMANCE LIGHTWEIGHT MANIPULATOR FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: Adaptive Machine Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A MANIPULATOR DESIGN IS PROPOSED WHICH USES ADVANCED MATERIALS AND CONTROL TECHNIQUES TO ACHIEVE PERFORMANCE FAR SUPERIOR TO THAT OF CONVENTIONAL MANIPULATORS. PRELIMINARY STUDIES INDICATE THAT A MANIPULATOR CAN BE DESIGNED WITH A USEFUL LOAD CAPACITY OF 100 KILOGRAMS, A USEFUL REACH OF 2.5 METERS, AND END-EFFECTOR SPEED OF AT LEAST 5 METERS/SEC, AND A WEIGHT OF LESS THAN 500 KILOGRAMS. THE DESIGN ...

  2. AS THE DOD IS MOVING TOWARDS THE LARGE-SCALE USE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS FOR SUPPORTING DECISION-MAKING AND INFORMATION ANALYSIS, IT BECOMES INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT THAT WE DEVELOP MECHANISMS FOR ASSESSING THE PERFORMANCE OF THESE SYSTEMS.

    SBC: Advanced Decision Systems            Topic: N/A

    AS THE DOD IS MOVING TOWARDS THE LARGE-SCALE USE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS FOR SUPPORTING DECISION-MAKING AND INFORMATION ANALYSIS, IT BECOMES INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT THAT WE DEVELOP MECHANISMS FOR ASSESSING THE PERFORMANCE OF THESE SYSTEMS. WE BELIEVE THAT ASKING "HOW INTELLIGENT IS THE SYSTEM?" IS NOT THE CORRECT PERFORMANCE QUESTION AND THAT MORE APPROPRIATE ARE "DOES THE SYSTEM HELP TH ...

  6. THE READY AVAILABILITY OF LOW COST MOBILE ROBOTS (LOCOMOBOT) WOULD PROVIDE RESEARCHERS IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE THE TOOL NEEDED TO TEST THESE ALGORITHMS IN A "REAL WORLD" ENVIRONMENT, OUTSIDE OF THE MAINFRAME ON WHICH THEY WERE DEVELOPED.

    SBC: Androbot Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE READY AVAILABILITY OF LOW COST MOBILE ROBOTS (LOCOMOBOT) WOULD PROVIDE RESEARCHERS IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE THE TOOL NEEDED TO TEST THESE ALGORITHMS IN A "REAL WORLD" ENVIRONMENT, OUTSIDE OF THE MAINFRAME ON WHICH THEY WERE DEVELOPED. IN OUR PHASE I STUDY, WE WILL ESTABLISH TRADEOFF ANALYSIS FOR THE KEY CHARACTERISTICS OF MOBILITY, FUNCTIONALITY, DATALINK, AND POWER SOURCE. WE WILL THEN REVI ...

  7. EM SCATTERING AND RCS CALCULATION FOR GENERALIZED INFINITE CYLINDERS

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    CONTRACTOR WILL DEVELOP A NUMERICAL TECHNIQUE FOR COMPUTING THE TWODIMENSIONAL RCS OF AN ARBITRARY INFINITE CYLINDER. CYLINDER MAY BE INHOMOGENEOUS, ANISOTROPIC, ABRUPTLY DISCONTINUOUS, LOSSY, HYSTERETIC OR OTHERWISE NONLINEAR, AND TIME-VARYING. THE NUMERICAL TECHNIQUE WILL BE BASED ON A TIME-DOMAIN FINITE-DIFFERENCE ALGORITHM USING GENERALIZED NONORTHOGONAL COORDINATES. IT WILL BE ORGANIZED IN SU ...

  9. PROCESSING

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    SEMICONDUCTING ORGANIC MATERIALS WILL BE TESTED FOR THEIR PROCESSABILITY IN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT MANUFACTURING. THE MATERIALS TO BE TESTED INCLUDE POLYPHENYLENE, POLYPHTHALOCYANINES, POLYACRYLONITRILES, TETRATHIAFULVENE HALIDES, AND POLYSILASTYRENE. THESE MATERIALS, WHEN PROPERLY DOPED, HAVE GOOD ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITIES AS WELL AS MAINTAINING EXCELLENT THERMAL STABILITY OF 400 DEG C. RATHER THAN D ...

  10. WHILE THE THEORETICAL BOUNDS ON THE ENERGY STORED BY AND THE POWER OUTPUT OF ELECTROCHEMICAL POWER SOURCES ARE WELL DEFINED BY THERMODYNAMIC AND PHYSICAL CONSIDERATIONS, THE DEGREE TO WHICH ONE CAN APPROACH THE THEORETICAL BOUNDS IS DETERMINED BY

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    WHILE THE THEORETICAL BOUNDS ON THE ENERGY STORED BY AND THE POWER OUTPUT OF ELECTROCHEMICAL POWER SOURCES ARE WELL DEFINED BY THERMODYNAMIC AND PHYSICAL CONSIDERATIONS, THE DEGREE TO WHICH ONE CAN APPROACH THE THEORETICAL BOUNDS IS DETERMINED BY CONTRAINTS IMPOSED BY THE DESIGN OF THE ELECTRODES AND PACKAGING MATERIALS. THIS RESEARCH DEALS WITH AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT FOR MATERIALS AND PACKAGE DESI ...
