The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until June, 2020.

  1. A 3-D Machine Tool Error Modeling System

    SBC: AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.            Topic: N/A

    In response to the increasing demand for better understanding of the manufacturing processes and the machining systems, a new testing standard--ASME B5.54 and a family of new testing instruments have been developed for evaluating the performances of a variety of CNC machining centers. Because of the advancement and versatility of the new instruments, test data are being collected at a much higher ...

  3. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  5. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  6. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  8. ADVANCED FIRE DETECTION BASED ON COMBINED CONVENTIONAL SMOKE AND CO SENSORS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT SMOKE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES SUFFER FROM SIGNIFICANT FALSE ALARM RATES. THESE PROBLEMS ARE CURRENTLY BEING ADDRESSED BY REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF EXISTING PARTICULATE DETECTORS. IN THIS WORK, THE FEASIBILITY OF A COMBINED PARTICULATE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR WILL BE EVALUATED. THE USE OF MULTIPLE FIRE SIGNATURES HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR REDUCING THE FALSE ALARM PROBLEMS WHILE INCREASING ...

  9. Development of a Sweating Thermal Conductive Performance Apparatus for

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Fire fighter burn injuries continue to be a frequent problem despite significant advances in protective clothing. A reason for this is the buildup of moisture in fire fighting garments as a result of sweating or fire fighting activities. This buildup of moisture increases the heat transfer through the garment and can result in scald burn injuries as the water is quickly heated. Currently, there is ...
