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. HTSC CHANNELIZED RECEIVER

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ADVANCES IN HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTSC) THIN FILM TECHNOLOGY ENABLE THE FABRICATION OF LOW-LOSS COMPONENTS THAT WILL IMPROVE THE COST AND PERFORMANCE OF CHANNELIZED RECEIVERS. CHANNELIZED RECEIVERS ARE USED IN SATELLITE TRANSPONDER, ELECTRONIC WARFARE AND ELECTRONICS INTELLIGENCE APPLICATIONS AND ARE COMPRISED OF A GROUP OF NARROW BAND RECEIVERS THAT COVER INDIVIDUAL SLOTS IN A ...

  2. HTSC RECEIVE PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT SIMPLIFICATION OF MICROWAVE PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA SYSTEM ARCHITECTURES CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH HTSC DEVICE TECHNOLOGY. ELIMINATION OF THE LOW NOISE AMPLIFIERS (LNAS) CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH REPLACEMENT OF THE GAAS PHASE SHIFTERS WITH LOW LOSS HTSC COMPONENTS. A REDUCTION IN COMPLEXITY LOWERS BOTH SYSTEM WEIGHT ANDCOST. KEY TO HTSC TECHNOLOGY INSERTION IN PHASED ARRAY ANTENNAS IS THE DE ...

  3. PROCESS MONITORING AND CONTROL DURING MOCVD OF FERROELECTRIC THIN FILMS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FERROELECTRICS (FE) HAVE A LARGE COMMERCIAL POTENTIAL AS PIEZOELECTRIC ELEMENTS, DIELECTRICS FOR CAPACITORS, AND IN OPTICAL GUIDED-WAVE DEVICES. MATERIALS PROCESSING HAS LIMITED APPLICATIONS IN MICROELECTRONICS AND PHOTONICS, HOWEVER, AND FEW METHODS ARE CAPABLE OF DEPOSITING HIGH QUALITY THIN FILMS COMPATIBLE WITH STANDARD SI INTEGRATED CIRCUIT PROCESS TECHNOLOGY. METALORGANIC CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPO ...

  4. BIOLOGICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING: MULTIACUITY VISION

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM IN MACHINE VISION FOR DYNAMIC SCENARIO APPLICATIONS IS THE TRADE-OFF BETWEEN SENSOR FIELD-OF-VIEW (FOV), SENSOR ACUITY, AND THE OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF SENSOR DATA WHICH MUST BE PROCESSED, LIMITING OVERALL SYSTEM, PERFORMANCE. TYPICALLY, FEATURES TO BE RESOLVED IN A SCENE ARE LOCALIZED WITHIN THE FOV. UNIFORM SAMPLING WITHIN THE FOV IS THUS INAPPROPRIATE; REGIONS WITH LITTLE O ...

  5. REACTION-SINTERING OF MOLYBDENUM DISILICIDE (MOSI2) MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: Benchmark Structural Ceramics            Topic: N/A

    REINFORCEMENT OF A MOLYBDENUM DISILICIDE MATRIX IS NECESSARY FOR ITS STRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS. CONVENTIONAL METHODS OFPRODUCING MOSI2 COMPOSITES ARE LABOR AND ENERGY INTENSIVE, AND HAVE THE PROBLEM OF PRESERVING THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE REINFORCEMENT. BENCHMARK'S INNOVATIVE METHOD CONSISTS OF SIMULTANEOUS MOSI2 POWDER SYNTHESIS AND COMPOSITE CONSOLIDATION THROUGH REACTION-SINTERING BY ITS CO ...

  6. RELAXOR FERROELECTRIC PB(MG1/3NB2/3)03 FOR THIN FILM CAPACITORS

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM'S OBJECTIVE IS TO ESTABLISH THE RELAXOR FERROELECTRIC PB(MG1/2NBS/3)O3 (PMN) AS THE MATERIAL OF CHOICE FOR THIN FILM CAPACITORS IN DRAM AND ELECTRONIC PACKAGING APPLICATIONS.IN CONTRAST TO "NORMAL" FERROELECTRICS, E.G., BATIO3 AND PZT, RELAXORS OFFER HIGH DIELECTRIC CONSTANTS (K>10,000), BROAD PHASE TRANSITIONS,LOW E-FIELD DEPENDENCY OF K, AND LARGE RXC TIME CONSTANTS. IN ADDITION, TH ...

  9. HIGHLY SENSITIVE FAR INFRARED SENSOR FABRICATED WITH HIGH TC TL-BA-CA-CU-O SUPERCONDUCTOR THIN FILMS

    SBC: Excel Superconductors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE PROPOSED PROGRAM, FOR THE FIRST TIME, FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AND CHARACTERIZING HIGHLY SENSITIVE BOLOMETER IN THE 10-100 FM WAVELENGTH REGION USING HIGH TEMPERATURE T1-BA-CA-CU-OSUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILM, IS EXAMINED. THESE MATERIALS BECAUSE OF THE LOW BAND GAP ENERGY (\ W 25 MEV) AND SHARP TRANSITION TEMPERATURE, THEY ARE INHERENTLY CAPABLE OF DETECTING RADIATION OVER A WIDE WAVELENGTH ...

  10. BIOMIMETIC PROCESSING OF SILICATE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Gelest Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS DIRECTED TOWARD THE PREPARATION OF SOL-GEL DERIVED SILICATE STRUCTURES BY BIOMIMETIC PROCESSES. ORGANOSILICON AND GERMANIUM PROBES WILL BE SYNTHESIZED AND THEIR EFFECTS ON REPRESENTATIVE SPECIES OF DIATOMS WILL BE SCREENED. DIATOMS PRODUCE AN ORDERED DEPOSITION OF AMORPHOUS SILICON DIOXIDE FROM SUPERSATURATED SILICATE SOLUTIONS. ORDERED DEPOSITION OF SILICON DIOXIDE IS A MAJOR OBJ ...
