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. "TWO-WAVELENGTH LASER FOR SURGERY"

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF LASERS AS A SURGICAL MODALITY HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED IN RECENT YEARS. LASERS OF VARIOUS WAVELENGTHS ARE SUITED FOR DIFFERENT SPECIFIC SURGICAL FUNCTIONS. CO2 (10.6 ) RADIATION HAS SMALL PENETRATION DEPTHS IN TISSUES. THIS LEADS TO HIGH SURFACE TEMPERATURES WHICH ARE DESIRABLE FOR TISSUE INCISION THROUGH EVAPORATION. ND:YAG LASERS (1.06 ) PROVIDE VOLUMETRIC TISSUE HEATING WHICH IS EFFECTIV ...

  2. RAMAN COVERTED MID-IR LASER

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PULSED MID-IR LASER IN THE 3.5 TO 4.1 MICROMETER ATMOSPHERIC TRANSMISSION WINDOW. SUCH SPECTRAL SOURCE IS RELEVANT TO A VARIETY OF TACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE DF CHEMICAL LASER HAS BEEN THE CHOICE, BUT SUFFERS FROM WASTE FUEL MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS. NO OTHER EFFICIENT DIRECT LASING SOURCE IS AVAILABLE. TO OBTAIN SUCH A SOURCE, WE PROPOSE THE USE O ...

  3. THE SCATTERING OF X-RAYS CAN BE USED TO IMAGE THE DENSITY OFANATOMICAL STRUCTURES UP TO SEVERAL CENTIMETERS DEEP IN THE HUMAN BODY.

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE SCATTERING OF X-RAYS CAN BE USED TO IMAGE THE DENSITY OFANATOMICAL STRUCTURES UP TO SEVERAL CENTIMETERS DEEP IN THE HUMAN BODY. THIS RESEARCH DESCRIBES A TECHNIQUE OF USING COMPTOM SCATTERED X-RAYS IN AN IPSILATERAL (BACKSCATTER) GEOMETRY TO OBTAIN THREE-DIMENSIONAL DENSITY INFORMATION FORMAXILLODENTAL IMAGING. THE TECHNIQUE IS CALLED COMPTON SCATTER TOMOGRAPHY (CST). CURRENTLY, IN THIS ANATOM ...

  6. LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT CANNOT BE DETECTED BY STANDARD RADAR BECAUSE OF INTERFERENCE FROM CLUTTER.

    SBC: Active E-o Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT CANNOT BE DETECTED BY STANDARD RADAR BECAUSE OF INTERFERENCE FROM CLUTTER. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A COHERENT LASER RADAR SYSTEM APPROACH, CONSISTING OF 2 KM SPACED LASER RADAR SITES THAT SCAN THE SKY IN ELEVATION ANGLE, WHICH CAN DETECT AIRCRAFT BETWEEN THE HORIZON AND 300 METER ALTITUDE. EACH SITE WILL BE BATTERY POWERED AND INTERCONNECTED BY A FIBEROPTIC LOCAL AREA NETWORK T ...

  7. TOUGH THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE BRIDGE DECK DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Advanced Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A MANUFACTURING PROCESS AND SAMPLE HARDWARE FOR A LIGHTWEIGHT, TOUGH COMPOSITE CLASS 70 TRIARCH BRIDGE DECK. CONTINUOUS FIBER REINFORCED THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITES (TPC) ARE WELL SUITED TO THIS APPLICATION BECAUSE THEY OFFER REDUCED WEIGHT, IMPROVED IMPACT DAMAGE TOLERANCE, LOW CORROSION POTENTIAL, AND ARE SUITED FOR HIGH VOLUME MANUFACTURING METHODS. AFTER ...

  8. CONTINUOUS HEATED ROLL FORMING OF THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Advanced Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION METHOD BASED ON THE USE OF CONTINUOUS FIBER REINFORCED THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE MATERIAL. HEATED ROLL FORMING (HRF), AN ADAPTATION OF THE METAL ROLL FORMING PROCESS, IS TO BE USED BECAUSE OF ITS ABILITY TO PRODUCE A VERY BROAD RANGE OF SHAPES, SIZES, AND MATERIALS IN HIGH VOLUME AND THEREFORE LOW UNIT COST. THE APPROACH TO HRF PROC ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Advanced Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE MATERIALS SUCH AS GRAPHITE/PPS OFFER THE POTENTIAL TO REDUCE WEIGHT AND ENVIRONMENTAL CORROSION IN MILITARY BOMB RACKS. THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO APPLY THOSE BENEFITS TO THE MAU-12 AIRCRAFT BOMB EJECTOR RACK ASSEMBLY. AFTER A REVIEW OF AVAILABLE DATA, SEVERAL METAL COMPONENTS OF THE EXISTING BOMB RACK WILL BE SELECTED FOR COMPOSITE DESIGN. ONE OF THESE WILL BE BUILT AND T ...

  10. AIRCRAFT STRUCTURE

    SBC: Advanced Composite Products            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A "HYBRID YARN" CONSISTING OF A MIXTURE OF GRAPHITE AND THERMOPLASTIC FILAMENTS TO FABRICATE A PRIMARY STRUCTURAL COMPONENT TYPICAL OF CURRENT AND FUTURE ARMY COMPOSITE AIRFRAME STRUCTURES. THE RESULTING THERMOPLASTIC MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIAL IS ANTICIPATED TO HAVE THE SAME IMPROVEMENTS IN TOUGHNESS AND REPAIRABILITY THAT CHA ...
