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.

  2. SODIUM HEAT ENGINE DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE SODIUM HEAT ENGINE (SHE) IS AN EFFICIENT DEVICE FOR THE DIRECT CONVERSION OF THERMAL ENERGY TO ELECTRICAL ENERGY. THE DEVICE HAS HIGH SPECIFIC POWER BOTH ON A VOLUME AND WEIGHT BASIS, HIGH CONVERSION EFFICIENCY WHICH IS INDEPENDENT OF SIZE, AND NO MOVING PARTS WHICH IMPLIES POTENTIALLY HIGH RELIABILITY. THESE ATTRIBUTES MAKE THE SHE AN ATTRACTIVE DEVICE FOR SDI APPLICATIONS. ALTHOUGH THE PRINC ...

  4. HIGH POWER SHORT PULSE BATTERY/CAPACITOR

    SBC: ERNEST MEADOWS INDUSTRIAL DESIGN            Topic: N/A

    BIPOLAR BATTERIES CAN, IN PRINCIPLE, YIELD ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE HIGHER SPECIFIC POWER THAN CONVENTIONAL, PARALLEL PLATE BATTERIES. SUCH BATTERIES BEGIN TO HAVE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS SIMILAR TO CAPACITORS AND COULD POSSIBLY BE USED TO REPLACE CAPACITOR FOR SOME APPLICATIONS. BATTERY PERFORMANCE OF BETWEEN 5 AND 2 A/CM2 AT 1.0 V CELL POTENTIAL FOR A TIME PERIOD OF 500 MICROSECONDS WITH ELECTROD ...

  5. MAINTENANCE-AND-VIBRATION-FREE SOLID ELECTROLYTE CRYOGENIC COOLER

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE COOLING REQUIRED FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF VARIOUS SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS IS A KEY PROBLEM IN SPACE-BASED FACILITIES. A NOVEL CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT LONE PEAK ENGINEERING BASED ON THE COMPRESSION OF A GAS TO HIGH PRESSURES USING A SOLID ELECTROLYTE COMPRESSOR. RAPID EXPANSION OF THE COMPRESSED GAS (JOULE-THOMSON EFFECT) CAN BE USED TO COOL SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT. SOME O ...

  8. Bipolar Lead Acid Batteries Using Polymer/carbon Composite Bipolar

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    WORKERS AT BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY, BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES, HAVE DEVELOPED A MATERIAL FOR USE AS A BIPOLAR ELECTRODE SUPPORT WHICH WILL RESULT IN MORE LIGHTWEIGHT, LONGER LIFE BATTERIES. THE ELECTRODE SUPPORT IS A COMPOSITE MATERIAL COMPOSED OF LOW SURFACE AREA CARBON/POLYMER COMPOSITE MATERIAL WHICH HAS LOW ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE, CHEMICALLY STABLE, AND HAS LOW ACTIVITY FOR OXYGEN EVOLUTION, AN UND ...

  9. Capillary Discharge X-Ray Laser Driver

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    A compact x-ray laser driver with a high repetition rate is the subject of this phase I project. Most existing x-ray laser drivers are huge (1000s of square feet of floor space), expensive ($10,000,000+), have a low repetition rate (1/hr), are complex and require several PhDs to keep them working. Thus applications of present x-ray lasers are limited. In contrast, the proposed laser will occupy on ...

  10. Micro Disk Systems for Inertial Sensing and Optical Beam Control

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Sarcos is currently developing a technology that can lead to low-cost millimeter-scale gyroscopes, multi axis inertial sensors, and very compact laser scanning devices. This technology, called Micro Disk Systems (MDS), is based on levitating a small disk above a VLSI substrate using electrostatic fields. AC stabilization of the fields ensures that the disk position remains suitable, and field-base ...
