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. OPTIMUM AIR-SPARGED HYDROCYCLONE FLOTATION FOR FINE COAL CLEANING WITH A PRESSURE SENSING CONTROL STRATEGY

    SBC: Advanced Processing Tech.,            Topic: N/A

    RECENT TESTING OF AIR-SPARGED HYDROCYCLONE (ASH) FLOTATION TECHNOLOGY FOR FINE COAL CLEANING AT THE EPRI/CODC TEST FACILITY HAS SHOWN THAT THE ASH SYSTEM HAS GREAT POTENTIAL FOR UTILIZATION IN THE COAL INDUSTRY. HOWEVER, EFFECTIVE UTILIZATION OF THIS TECHNOLOGY RELIES ON OPTIMUM CONTROL ANDCONTINUAL ADJUSTMENT OF MANIPULATED VARIABLES WITH RESPECT TO FLOTATION PERFORMANCE SINCE THE RETENTION TIME ...

  3. ANTHROPOMORPHIC CUTANEOUS TACTILE SENSING ON DEXTEROUS MECHANICAL HANDS

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH SPECIALLY DESIGNED END-EFFECTORS HAVE PROVIDED PRESENT DAY ROBOTS AND TELEOPERATOR SYSTEMS WITH THE ABILITY TO DO MANY INTRICATE TASKS, TRUE MANIPULATOR DEXTERITY WILL ONLY COME THROUGH THE USE OF MULTI-FINGERED ANTHROPOMORPHIC MECHANICAL HANDS. STABLE GRASPING OF IRREGULAR OBJECTS, OBJECT RECOGNITION, PRECISION ASSEMBLY, AND PERFORMANCE OF MANY INTRICATE TASKS NOW CONFINED TO HUMANS WILL ...

  6. IMPROVED REPLACEMENT TECHNOLOGY FOR RFLP ANALYSIS

    SBC: Ceres/npi            Topic: N/A

    RFLP ANALYSIS HAS BEEN SHOWN TO HAVE TREMENDOUS IMPLICATIONSFOR BOTH THE DIAGNOSIS OF GENETIC TENDENCIES FOR HUMAN DISEASE AND FOR APPLICATIONS TO PLANT AND ANIMAL IMPROVEMENT; UNFORTUNATELY, THE DEMANDS FOR ITS USE HAVE OUTSTRIPPED THE CAPACITY OF WHAT IS PRIMARILY A RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY. A REPLACEMENT TECHNOLOGY IS DESIRED THAT IS FASTER, CHEAPER, AND WITH A HIGHER THROUGHPUT BUT, AT THE SAME TIM ...

  7. FEASIBILITY OF PROPELLER LOAD CONTROL STRATEGIES UTILIZING PIEZOCERAMIC DRIVERS

    SBC: Daedalus Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CONTRACTOR WILL EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING ITS PIEZOCERAMIC CHIPS AS ACTUATORS FOR VARIABLE TWIST PROPELLERS IN UAV APPLICATIONS. THESE ACTUATORS WILL BE UTILIZED TO OPTIMIZE THE TWIST OF RIBSTIFFENED ELASTOMERIC PROPELLER BLADES ON A BLADE-ELEMENT-BY-BLADEELEMENT BASIS SO THAT EACH SEGMENT OF THE BLADE IS OPTIMIZED WITH RESPECT TO HELICAL INFLOW ANGLE INDEPENDENTLY OF EACH OTHER SEGMENT ...

  8. FEASIBILITY OF VARIOUS EROSION RESISTANCE/EROSION AVOIDANCE TECHNIQUES FOR SMALL INEXPENSIVE PROPELLERS

    SBC: Daedalus Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CONTRACTOR WILL EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING ITS EXISTING, BUT EXPERIMENTAL LEADING-EDGE PROTECTION SYSTEM TO PROVIDE EROSION RESISTANCE FOR INEXPENSIVE UAV PROPELLERS. THE EXISTING SYSTEM UTILIZES ELASTOMERIC URETHANES CONFIGURED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE PRINCIPLES OF THICK COATING THEORY. THE SYSTEM WILL BE THOROUGHLY TESTED, RATIONALIZED, AND DOCUMENTED; AND ITS ADAPTABILITY TO PRODUCTI ...

  9. RECORD-LINKING SYSTEM FOR GENETICS AND EPIDEMIOLOGY

    SBC: Dms Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    MANY GENETIC AND EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES RELY ON LINKING RECORDS IN SEPARATE FILES THAT REFER TO THE SAME INDIVIDUAL. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND BEGIN IMPLEMENTATION OF A PROTOTYPE OF A SYSTEM THAT FACILITATES LINKING RECORDS WHERE THE IDENTIFYING INFORMATION BETWEEN RECORDS IS NOT IDENTICAL. ALTHOUGH A GENERAL THEORY OF RECORD LINKING HAS EVOLVED OVER THE LAST SEVERAL DECADES, NO ...
