The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

  1. THE USE OF NEURAL NETWORKS FOR PROGRAMMING AND CONTROL OF SENSORY BASED ROBOTICS

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    TWO MAJOR IMPEDIMENTS TO THE EFFECTIVE USE OF ROBOTICS ARE 1) THE DIFFICULTY IN DEVELOPING ROBUST, ADAPTIVE, GOAL-DIRECTED BEHAVIOR BASED ON SENSORY INTERACTIVE CONTROL AND 2) THE DIFFICULTY IN REPROGRAMMING A ROBOTIC SYSTEM TO CARRY OUT NEW TASKS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS WORK IS TO DEVELOP A HYBRID CONTROL SYSTEM MERGING TRAINABLE NEURAL NETWORK MODULES WITH A WELL-STRUCTURED KNOWLEDGE BASED CONTRO ...

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Science Foundation
  2. AN ADVANCED HYBRID NEURAL NETWORK FOR ROBOT DYNAMICS MODELING

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    DYNAMICS MODELING IS IMPORTANT FOR THE DESIGN, ANALYSIS, SIMULATION, AND CONTROL OF ROBOTIC AND OTHER COMPUTER CONTROLLED MECHANICAL SYSTEMS. THE FORMULATION OF A MODEL AND THE REQUIREMENTS IMPOSED ON THE COMPUTATIONAL ALGORITHMSDIFFER FROM ONE APPLICATION TO THE OTHER. TODAY, ACCURATE MODELING CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED BY HAVING A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE PHYSICS OF THE SYSTEM IN ADDITION TO PERF ...

  3. NONINTRUSIVE PHOTOACOUSTIC CHARACTERIZATION OF CRITICAL PROPERTIES IN HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR SYSTEMS HAS CREATED A NEED TO DEVELOP COMPATIBLE MEASUREMENTTECHNIQUES TO CHARACTERIZE THE ELECTRICAL, STRUCTURAL, ACOUSTIC AND OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF THESE MATERIALS. ALTHOUGH MANY STANDARD METHODS OF MEASURING CONVENTIONAL SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS CAN BE ADAPTED TO NEW HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR SYSTEMS, EFFECTIVE MEASUREMENT OF CRITICAL PR ...

  4. PREATTENTIVE VISION BASED AUTOMATIC RECOGNITION OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    FIELD TRACKING OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS FROM FOREST FIRES OR VOLCANOES REQUIRES DETERMINATION OF THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT SHOWN IN VISIBLE IMAGES SCANNED FROM VARIOUS ANGLES ABOUT THE CLOUDS. AT THE PRESENT TIME, TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT IS DETERMINED BY AN OPERATOR WHO MANUALLY LOCATES POINTS ON THE CLOUD PERIMETER-A PROCEDURE WHICH HAS BEEN FOUND TO BE EXPENSIVE, TIME CONSUMING ...

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  5. THIN FILM OPTICAL SENSORS FOR SUBSURFACE MONITORING OF ORGANIC WASTE BIODEGRADATION

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF BIOREMEDIATION PROCEDURES TO TREAT ORGANIC WASTES CONTAINING CHLORINATED SOLVENTS OR CONCENTRATED ORGANICS PROVIDES AN EFFECTIVE METHOD OF REDUCING SUBSURFACE CONTAMINATION. HOWEVER, THE TRANSITION OF MICROBIALLY MEDIATED BIODEGRADATION FROM LABORATORY STUDIES TO FIELD-BASED METHODS HAS BEEN HAMPERED BY METHODOLOGICAL LIMITATIONS RELATED TO THE INABILITY TO VERIFY THE ACTIVITY AND TYPE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  6. LASER-DRIVEN DIRECTIONAL SOLIDIFICATION IN HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING FIBERS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A
