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. ADVANCED TELEROBOTICS CONCEPTS USING NEURAL NETWORKS

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE INTEND TO APPLY NEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGY TO TELEROBOTICS. THIS WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME OF THE ADVANCES THAT ARE BEING DONE FOR AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS. THESE CONCEPTS WILL EXTEND THE CAPABILITIES OF THE HUMAN OPERATOR. THE TELEROBOTIC CONTROLLER WILL BE TAUGHT USING BACKWARD SHAPING TO IMPROVE ITS SPEED OF LEARNING. IT IS PROPOSED TO ADD A CAPABILITY FOR ASSOCIATION BASED SENSOR DATA FUSION. THE ...

  2. NEURAL NETWORKS FOR AUTONOMOUS MOTOR CONTROL

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A ROBOTIC CONTROL SYSTEM WITH NEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGY WHICH CAN ADAPT TO VARIABLE PAYLOAD TRANSPORT CONDITIONS. TRADITIONAL TECHNOLOGIES HAVE DIFFICULTY PROVIDING ADAPTIVE AND AUTONOMOUS MOTOR CONTROL OR THE ABILITY TO GENERALIZE TO UNFORESEEN CONDITIONS. ADAPTIVE CONTROL IS NECESSARY BECAUSE THERE IS VARIATION OF COMPONENT MASSES AND INERTIA, DIRECTION OF GRAVITY AND LITTL ...

  3. EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES RESULTING IN LIGHTER AIRCRAFT WEIGHT INCREASED ENGINE PERFORMANCE (ISP) AND IMPROVED DESIGN TOOLS

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF USING NEURAL NETWORKS (NN) IN FAULT DETECTION AND ISOLATION (FDI) SYSTEMS. WE HOPE TO DEMONSTRATE THE APPLICABILITY OF NEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGIES AND ALGORITHMS FOR THE DESIGN OF IMPORTANT SUBSYSTEMS TO BE USED ON BOARD THE HIGH VISABILITY NASP OR X-30. THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MOST ADVANCED AVIONICS FOR USE IN THIS 21ST CENT ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF TUNGSTEN BASED COMPOSITES

    SBC: 3c Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP AND EMPLOY TWO ADVANCED TECHNOLOGICAL TOOLS IN THE CONTINUING R&D PROBLEM TO DEVELOP IMPROVED TUNGSTEN BASED COMPOSITE MATERIALS TO BE USED IN KINETIC ENERGY PENETRATORS: (1) THE HOT ISOSTATIC PRESSING (HIP) PROCESS WILL BE EMPLOYED TO FABRICATE THE MOST PROMISING TUNGSTEN-CERAMIC (CERMET) MATERIAL COMBINATIONS. (2) IN ORDER TO OBTAIN DYNAMIC MATERIAL PROPERTIES AND ULTIM ...

  5. NOVEL PROCESS FOR THE THIN FILM GROWTH OF YBA2CU3O7

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

    REALIZATION OF THE PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES OF SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES IN HIGH FREQUENCY COMMUNICATIONS DEPENDS ON DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW TEMPERATURE DEPOSITION PROCESS WITH EXACTING CONTROL OF STOICHIOMETRY AND MORPHOLOGY. MOCVD CAN MEET THESE NEEDS COUPLED WITH EASE OFSCALE-UP. HOWEVER, RECENT WORK AT ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY MATERIALS, INC. SHOWS THAT YBACUO AND BISRCACUO FILMS GROWN BY MOCVD AT TEMPERA ...

  6. WEAK LINK FORMATION IN THALLIUM BOORIUM CALCIUM COPPER OXIDE

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

    THE ELECTRICAL AND MATERIAL PROPERTIES OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTSC) THIN FILMS HAVE IMPROVED DRAMATICALLYIN RECENT MONTHS. HOWEVER, A FABRICATION PROCESS CAPABLE OFPRODUCING JOSEPHSON JUNCTIONS IN FINITE YIELDS HAS YET TO BEDEVELOPED. SOME DEMONSTRATION DEVICES HAVE BEEN MADE WHICH INDICATE THAT THE 77 K NOISE LEVELS OF DC SQUIDS MADE FROM THALLIUM-BORIUM-CALCIUM-COPPER-OXIDE ARE LOW ...

  7. PECVD OF BATIO3

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

    THE USE OF PEROVSKITES SUCH AS BATIO3 AS THIN FILM FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS IN MICROELECTRONICS AND PHOTONICS HAS BEEN LIMITED BY MATERIALS PROCESSING AND COMPATIBILITY PROBLEMS. HIGH QUALITY FERROELECTRIC THIN FILMS HAVE NOT BEEN GROWN AT TEMPERATURES COMPATIBLE WITH STANDARD SI OR GAAS PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY. CONSIDERING THE SUPERB ELECTRICAL AND OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF THESE MATERIALS AS WELLAS THE ...

  8. A DIAMOND MICROSTRIP DETECTOR

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

    SOLID-STATE IONIZATION DETECTORS INCREASINGLY FIND USE IN MEDICAL, NUCLEAR, AND HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS AND IN MAGNETIC FUSION RESEARCH. UNFORTUNATELY, SILICON-BASED DETECTORS ARE HIGHLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO RADIATION DAMAGE, CAN OPERATE ONLYIN A NARROW TEMPERATURE REGIME, AND HAVE UNDESIRABLE SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIOS EVEN AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. A NEW CLASS OF RADIATION-RESISTANT, HIGH TEMPERATURE DETECTORS BAS ...

  9. SYNCHROTRON MONOCHROMATOR CRYSTAL GROWTH

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

    SYNCHROTRON RADIATION FACILITIES ARE BEING USED INCREASINGLYFOR ADVANCED MATERIALS RESEARCH. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS RESEARCH IS NOW COMPROMISED BY A SHORTAGE OF SUITABLE CRYSTALS TO MAKE DEVICES FOR LONG WAVELENGTH SPECTROSCOPY INTHE SOFT X-RAY REGION OF 6 TO 30 ANGSTROM. THE CRYSTAL, YTTRIUM BORIDE (YB66), HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A POTENTIAL MONOCHROMATOR FOR DISPERSING SYNCHROTRON RADIATION. K ...

  10. 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 ...
