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. Laser Polarimetric Apparatus for Rapid Emissivity Measurements on Pulse-Heated Materials

    SBC: Containerless Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser polarimetric/ellipsometric methods have been employed in our laboratory for the measurement of the normal spectral emissivities of solid and liquid materials at elevated temperatures. In this approach, a polarized light source is incident on the surface of interest at oblique incidence, and the reflected polarization state is measured in about 0.5 ms. The optical properties of the surface, ...

  2. A Compact Neutron Spectrometer Based Upon Inorganic Hydrogenous Scintillators

    SBC: Merril Corporation of Utah, dba MSI Photogenics            Topic: N/A

    Mission Support proposes to develop a compact, self-contained neutron spectrometer for MeV neutrons that will be suitable for the detection of the nitrogen, oxygen and carbon components in explosive materials. Neutron-resonance-radiographic techniques will be employed to detect the presence of these materials through their distinctive total-neutron-cross-section resonances. The detector insures ...

  4. Foam in Place Mulching Method for Specialty Crops

    SBC: C And A Country Gardens            Topic: N/A

    Frothed foams will be prepared and applied in place as low cost mulches for weed control in small plot specialty crop operations. Foam mixes will be formulated from degradable natural polymers including gelatins and starches. Fillers will be common cellulosic mulch ingredients such as crushed seed hulls and corncobs. A conventional portable spray tank modified with an impeller blade will mechan ...

  5. HIGH-SPEED DRYING OF SPACEBOARD II

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    AN APPARATUS AND TECHNIQUE FOR HIGH-SPEED DRYING OF A NEW STRUCTURAL MATERIAL, KNOWN AS SPACEBOARD, WILL BE DEVELOPED. SPACEBOARD IS A NOVEL STRUCTURAL BOARD COMPOSED OF PULPED WOOD FIBER. THE SPACEBOARD CONCEPT WAS INVENTED AT THE FOREST PRODUCTS LABORATORY SEVERAL YEARS AGO. THE BOARDS ARE PRODUCED BY PRESSING FIBER AGAINST COMPRESSIBLE RUBBER MOLDS TO FORM A STRUCTURE HAVING A SMOOTH FACE, BACK ...

  6. Tangential X-Ray CT Scanner System for Log Scanning

    SBC: Omega International Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an affordable yet production speed Tangential x-ray CT scanner system for an inside 3-dimensional look of the logs. The present x-ray CT scanners are designed for medical or other research applications and are not suitable for production environment generally found in forest product mills. The prior experimental work by many scientists in the forest product industries have ...

  7. Development of Protein Modified Milk for Prevention and Treatment of Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus

    SBC: Wendtech International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Biospecific absorption methodology will be developed to remove bovine serum albumin (BSA) from cow's milk for use in infant formulas as insulin dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM) is thought to be an auto immune reaction in diabetes prone individuals, which ultimately results in pancreatic Beta cell destruction. BSA is a minor protein in cow's milk, but significantly contributes to IDDM. Using ce ...

  8. A Reusable, Non-Toxic, Non-Lethal Activated Barrier to Delay Unauthorized Intruders by Vision Obscuration

    SBC: Advanced Safeguards, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    40436 November 18, 1996 Advanced Safeguards, Inc. In high-security Department of Energy and Department of Defense facilities, cold-chemical smoke generators are used to produce visual obscurants in order to delay unauthorized intruders. The technology is based on the rapid rejection of two chemicals, contained within the device, into the surrounding air w ...

  10. Intermediate Temperature (~650 Degrees Celsius), High Power Density Solid Oxide

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    41046 Materials and Systems Research, Inc. Generation of electrical energy by fuel cells is an important are of energy conversion technology. The principal impediment to achieving high power densities is the lack of efficient electrodes. The objective of this project is to further enhance the performance of the already efficient electrodes by the introduction of a thin catalytic layer so that t ...
