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

  1. HYBRID METHOD FOR ASSESSMENT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL PROFICIENCY MAINTENANCE.

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO IDENTIFY THE EFFECT OF COGNITIVE REHEARSAL ON REGAINING AND MAINTAINING FLYING SKILLS. BY COGNITIVE REHEARSAL (CR) WE MEAN ACTIVITIES PERFORMED BY THE FAA INSPECTOR DURING FLIGHT PROFICIENCY CHECKS SUCH AS CHECKLIST VERIFICATION, VERIFICATION OF ABNORMAL PROCEDURE EXECUTION, AND THE LIKE. PRECISE DATA ABOUT THE TYPES OF SKILLS MAINTAINED VIA CR, THE RATE OF DECAY OF THE SKILLS NOT MA ...

  2. MWM-Array Characterization of Widespread Fatigue Damage Onset

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will investigate the potential of an enhanced version of the Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM), called the MWM-Array, to characterize and predict remaining life for components experiencing widespread fatigue damage. The MWM has already demonstrated the potential to characterize fatigue damage in metals priod to the formation of cracks, as well as the ability to detect and charac ...

  3. Automated Production of Composite Energy Absorbing Utility Poles

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites, Kaman Sciences and Dr. Malcolm Ray of the University of Iowa propose to investigate the design of energy absorbing utility poles made from composite materials. This team has considerable experience in the multiple technologies needed to successfully complete the proposed program, including design of high performance composite products for automated production and design, analysi ...

  4. Monolithic Fully Integrated Optic Inertial Navigation System

    SBC: Optisensors Inc            Topic: N/A

    The GPS is an affordable and accurate means of guiding military and civilian aircraft. However, at times the GPS signal becomes blocked or degraded due to loss of satellite lock or poor viewing angle. It is necessary to back it up with inertial navigation. However, there is no INS system which is accurate enough and inexpensive enough to do the job. A completely monolithic fully integrated INS ...

  5. Neutron Radiography with Inorganic Scintillation Detectors

    SBC: World Physics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose here to evaluate a variety of inorganic scintillators, including sodium iodide and bismuth germanate, for use in energy-sensitive neutron detectors. We will couple these crystals to photomultiplier tubes and measure the prompt response to inelastic neutron reactions with the scintillator atoms. To unfold the incident neutron energy distribution from the resulting signal pulse heights, ...

  6. NEW RARE EARTH ALUMINATE SCINTILLATORS FOR GAMMA-RAY DETECTION

    SBC: Alem Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DETECTION OF WEAPONRY AND OTHER HAZARDS IS AN UNFORTUNATE BUT NECESSARY FACTOR IN MODERN TRANSPORTATION ENVIRONMENT. FOR INANIMATE OBJECTS, ONE PARTICULARLY ATTRACTIVE TECHNIQUE IS GAMMARAY DETECTION. IRRADIATION WITH A HIGH-ENERGY SOURCE, SUCH AS A NEUTRON EMITTER, CAUSES ELEMENTS IN THE OBJECT TO EMIT GAMMA RAYS. EACH ELEMENT HAS ITS OWN CHARACTERISTIC RADIATION SIGNATURE, WHICH CAN BE USED TO D ...

  10. Chemical-Free Deicing- A Systems Approach

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes an innovative approach to non-chemical deicing of aircraft which focuses on new technology which could provide revolutionary improvement in the performance of a relatively mature deicing technique. This combined systems approach could be readily incorporated into existing aircraft and ground support equipment. We propose to develop a permanent anti-icing surface treatment ...
