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. Eulerian Non-Reflecting Boundary for Structure-Bubble Interaction Involving Near Field Convention Explosions

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT COROPUTER ANALYSIS OF BUBBLE-SUBMERGED STRUCTURE INTERACTION, DUE TO CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS, IS EXTREMELY RESOURCE INTENSIVE. THEREFORE, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO REPLACE FULL SCALE LIVE FIRE TESTING OF SUBMERGED STRUCTURE WITH SCALE TESTING OF SUBMERGED STRUCTURES AND COMPUTER ANALYSIS. THE GOAL OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP AN ACCURATE AND EFFICIENT NON-REFLECTING BOUNDARY FOR EULERIAN HYDROD ...

  2. A Plasma Opening Switch Model for Power Flow Electrical Circuit Design

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) MODEL IS PROPOSED FOR IMPLEMENTATION INTO AN ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT COMPUTER CODE. THE UNIQUE APPROACH DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL INCORPORATES A SEGMENTED SHEATH MODEL INTO THE EXISTING MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMICG (MHD) CODEPRISM DEVELOPED BY BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. THE VERSION PROPOSED FOR PHASE I INCLUDES 1) TWO-DIMENSIONAL MHD MOTION OF THE BULK PLASMA; 2) RELA ...

  3. Nuclear Hardening And Survivability Of Acousto-Optics

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE VERY WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS OF ACOUSTO-OPTIC SIGNAL PROCESSING AND OPTICAL COMMUNICATION IN NUCLEAR WARFARE ARMS, THE NEED EXISTS TO EVALUATE OPTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSORS COMPONENTS IN BOTH REAL AND SIMULATED NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENTS. ALSO THE USE OF ACOUSTO-OPTIC DEVICES FOR A COMMERCIAL SPACE APPLICATIONS IS VERY PROMISING DUE TO ITS HIGH SPEED, LOW POWER CONSUMPTION AND LIGHT WEIGHT. IN P ...

  4. Artificial Neural Network Tracking of Targets in Nuclear Backgrounds

    SBC: Defense Group Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL ADAPT AND IMPROVE AN INNOVATIVE MOVING-TARGET DETECTION AND TRACKING APPROACH, BASED ON ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK (ANN) PROCESSING TECHNIQUES, FOR APPLICATION TO THE TRACKING OF BOOST-PHASE MISSILE TARGETS IN THE PRESENCE OF INFRARED CLUTTER DUE TO HIGH-ALTITUDE NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS (BANES). OUR RESEARCH WILL USE TIME-SEQUENCED SIMULATED INFRARED IMAGES OF BANE BACKGROUNDS WITH MOVING TARGET ...

  5. ION BEAM DEPOSITED FERROELECTRIC MEMORY FILMS

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTER MEMORY ARRAYS ARE EXTREMELY VULNERABLE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC DISTURBANCES RESULTING FROM ACCIDENTAL OR HOSTILE ACTIONS. HARDENING AGAINST SUCH EFFECTS CAN BE IMPARTED EITHER BY ADDING EXTERNAL PROTECTION TO EXISTING SYSTEMS OR BY INCORPORATING SURVIVABILITY IN NEW DESIGNS. INHERENT HARDNESS CAN BE IMPARTED TO RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY ARRAYS BY USING THIN FILM FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS AS MEMORY EL ...

  6. Solid State High Power Generators for Radiation Testing of Systems

    SBC: Energv Compression Research            Topic: N/A

    A NEW APPROACH TO ULTRA-HIGH POWER PULSED TECHNOLOGY, APPLICABLE TO RADIATION TEST SIMULATION, IS PRESENTED. IT IS BASED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF ONE TERAWATT (1 TW) PULSED POWER GENERATOR MODULES. THESE MODULES CAN BE CHARGED IN AIR AND USE ONLVSOLID STATE COMPONENTS. THEV ARE SWITCHED BY LASER-ACTIVATED CLOSING SWITCHES. THE RESULTING MODULES ARE EXTREMELY COMPACT AND, UTILIZING A SINGLE STAGE OF S ...

  7. Miniature, Handheld Chemical Warfare Material Detection System for Treaty Verification Using Gas Chromatography/Ion Mobility Spectrometry

    SBC: FEMTOSCAN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ACCURATE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS AT POTENTIAL SITES OF CHEMICAL WARFARE (CW) AGENT MANUFACTURE, STORAGE OR USE IS OF GREAT VALUE FOR DETERMINATION OF CW TREATY VIOLATIONS AND FOR VERIFICATION OF DESTRUCTION OR REMOVAL OF CW AGENT SYSTEMS. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN HAND- HELD GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY/ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETRY (GC/IMS) FOR DIRECT AIR MONITORING HAVE ILLUSTRATED THE POTENTIAL OF THIS TECHNIQUE FOR ...

  8. "Electrothermal Gun Interior Ballistics Model Assessment"

    SBC: Fluid Physics Ind.            Topic: N/A

    THE ELECTRO-THERMAL-COMBUSTION (ETC) GUN CONCEPT WAS DEVELOPED AS AN ADVANCED TECHNIQUE FOR HYPERVELOCITY GUN SYSTEMS WHICH AUGMENTS THE ELECTRICAL ENERGY INPUT OF THE ORIGINAL ET GUN BY USING A REACTIVE WORKING FLUID. THIS HOWEVER HAS COMPROMISED THE ABILITY TO CONTROL THE INTERIOR BALLISTIC PROCESSED PRINCIPAL ADVANTAGE OF THE ET GUN CONCEPT. IN THE ETC GUN, THE GAS GENERATION RATE IS ONE STEP R ...

  9. Input Proection Circuits for Cryogenic Silicon ICs

    SBC: FULL CIRCLE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR ELEMENT OF THE THREAT TO SPACE LWIR SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS FROM EXOATMOSPHERIC NUCLEAR WEAPONS EFFECTS IS THAT OF EMP/SGREMP PRODUCED ELECTRICAL OVERSTRESS (EOS) ON READ OUT ELECTRONICS USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH FOCAL PLANE ARRAYS IN IMAGING SYSTEMS. USE OF EXISTING TECHNOLOGY FOR PORTECTING SUCH CIRCUITS FROM EOS WOULD BE PROBELMATICAL BECAUSE OF THE CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES AT WHICH THEY OPER ...

  10. HIGH FREQUENCY AIRBLAST PRESSURE SENSOR FOR UGT MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL INSTRUMENTATION FOR AIRBLAST PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS IN CAVITY SHOTS IS LIMITED IN RISE TIME CAPABILITY. THIS RESULTS IN THE INSTRUMENTATION PROVIDING AN INCORRECT INDICATION OF PEAK PRESSURE, WHICH CREATES DISTORTION IN GENERATED HEIGHT-OF-BURST CURVES. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FIBER OPTIC AIRBLAST PRESSURE SENSOR BASED ON THE PHOTOELASTIC EFFECT IS PROPOSED. THIS TECHNIQUE PROMISES TO PRO ...
