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. Gene-Probe Electrodes to Detect Enterically-Transmitted RNA Virus Pathogens

    SBC: ALDERON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Enterically transmitted pathogens cause far more illness than toxicants such as lead, mercury, pesticides, and all other forms of chemical contamination. The world has become increasingly vulnerable to the spread of old and flew infectious organisms and water-borne pathogens as illustrated by recent outbreaks of 20 well-known and at least 29 previously unknown diseases. New tests are needed to d ...

  2. Parallelizing Visualization Algorithms for Interactive Computational Analysis


    Computational Engineering International, Inc. (CEI) proposes (in Phase I) to investigate and (in Phase II) develop a visualization environment which will enable scientists and engineers to effectively investigate very large data sets that are currently or will be produced through computational analysis in the High Performance Computing (HPC) community. The lack of an effective software visualizat ...

  3. Development of a High Temperature Silicon Carbide CMOS Technology

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a process for growing single crystal boules of 6H-SiC at the firm has lead to rapid advances in SiC device development and performance including production of the world's only commercially viable blue light emitting diode. Cree is currently using 1.375 inch diameter wafers and is in the process of scaling up to 2 inch production. Cree has also demonstrated a complete range of fi ...

  4. High Voltage, High Current 4H-SiC Bipolar Power Devices

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The rapid development of the technology of producing high quality single crystal SiC wafers and thin film presents the opportunity to fabricate solid-state devices with power-temperature capability far greater than devices currently available. This capa- bility is ideally suited for military and commercial applications requiring high blocking voltage switches and amplifiers capable of large curre ...

  5. Development of GaN/AlGaN HEMT's on Silicon Carbide

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for high power solid state devices operating in the millimeter wave frequency range for both radar applications and high frequency communications networks. While GaAs an InP technologies shave demonstrated operation at extremely high frequencies, the power that they can generate is very limited. IN order to replace traveling wave tubes, solid state devices must demonstrate higher ...

  6. Shock Resistant Single-Mode Fiber Optic Connector

    SBC: DIGITAL OPTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The ST-connector is the standard Navy single fiber connector. It is a quick-release fiber connector which makes it easy to connect and install but the quick release nature of the coupling makes it very sensitive to severe vibration. We propose a novel coupling system that will be incorporated into the ST-connector, which will significantly reduce its sensitivity to vibration. Our coupling syst ...

  7. Development of an Active, Broadband, Concentric-Coil Electromagnetic (ABCEM) Mine Detector

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    We propose developing a new, portable electromagnetic mine detector. Geophex has previously developed and deployed a new generation of electromagnetic sensors that, with additional improvements proposed in this SBIR, has a strong potential to become the most state-of-the-art electromagnetic mine detector. The proposed sensor will consist of three co-located coils based on the magnetic cavity con ...

  8. Role of Iron in the Biodegradation of Fuel Hydrocarbons

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    In aquifers contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons, subsurface microorganisms may use ferric iron as an electron acceptor to oxidize dissolved contaminants after oxygen and nitrate are depleted. The available evidence suggests that iron reduction can have significant effects on contaminant fate and transport. However, the exact mechanism of microbial iron reduction is still poorly und ...

  9. Multi-Agent Tool for Effective Network-Based Training Systems


    DoD spends billions of dollars each year on specialized trainers. We propose to exploit recent developments in multimedia communications, the Internet, agent technology, distributed simulations, domain independent knowledge representations and intelligent tutoring systems to reduce the cost of provide authoring tools for building training systems. We propose to employ standard languag ...

  10. Chemical Hydride Hydrogen Sources for Small Fuel Cells

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

    A study of several hydrides to be used as fuel cell hydrogen sources is proposed. The project emphasizes the advantages of hydrolytic over "dry" hydriding and focuses on control and safety issues. The problem will be addressed by testing high energy-density hydrides, such as LiH, LiAlH4, LiBH4, NaBH4, and NaAlH4. In the proposed Phase I effort, "hydride fuel packs" will be developed, tested and ...
