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. Development of a Multiplexed Flow Cytometer Receptor Assay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    It is well known that many chemicals may disturb the endocrine system. These endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can cause adverse effects on human health and wildlife. In 1996, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) to determine if chemicals used in commerce may have hormonal effects in humans. There are mo ...

  2. Structural Flaw Detection in Composites

    SBC: Aci Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    ACIT will design and demonstrate a remotely addressed crack/flaw detection system for composite materials. It will consist of a passive embedded sensor and a handheld portable detector, operating on the principle of the coupling of the LC tank circuit withthe behavior of a strain sensitive resistor. This system uses well known principles of an electronic circuit with carefully balanced forces of ...

  3. Piezoelectric Single Crystal Applications- Development of Highly Directional Sonobuoys Using Scalar, Vector, and Dyadic Sensors

    SBC: Acoustech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Acoustech plans a two-year effort aimed at evaluating acoustic dyadic sensors for prospective use in directional sonobuoys utilized by the U. S. Navy. The chief sonobuoys targeted in this study are the AN/SSQ-53 DIFAR, AN/SSQ-77 VLAD, and AN/SSQ-62 DICASSunits. The DIFAR and VLAD buoys are passive devices that have a bandwidth of 5 - 2400 Hz, whereas the DICASS buoy is an active device that has ...

  4. High Performance Heat Spreaders for High Heat Flux Power Electronic Modules

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Navy SBIR program will develop a high performance heat spreader technology that can be integrated into power semiconductor die packages to acquire and spread high heat fluxes exceeding 1,000W/cm2. The heat spreader will also interface withother parts of the thermal management system to effectively transport and dissipate the large heat loads to maintain the safe operating temperature ...

  5. High Performance Networks b. smart High-Speed Network Interface Cards

    SBC: Advanced Fibers & Powders, LLC            Topic: N/A

    73189B03 I Upon transmitting or receiving messages, the classical network interface card (NIC) generates an interrupt to the operating system kernel and thus to the host processor, which must service the interrupt. As network speed increases towards 10 Gigabit Ethernet, the host can be tied down with interrupt latency. New Operating Systems (OS) Bypass systems (hardware and software) are needed ...

  6. Advanced Control Modules for Hybrid Fuel Cell/Gas Turbine Power Plants

    SBC: Advanced Fibers & Powders, LLC            Topic: N/A

    70558B02-II The control and dynamic operation of Fuel Cell/Turbine Hybrid power plants will require a synergy of operation between subsystems, increased reliability of operation, and reduction in maintenance and downtime. Furthermore, the control strategy of the power plant will play a significant role in system stability and in ensuring the protection of equipment to promote maximum life. Thi ...

  7. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

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

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials that are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoreti ...

  8. Real-Time Optical Smoke Meters

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

    The SAE smoke number has been an important measurement for prevention of black, sooty plumes in military and commercial aviation. The current method, however, requires the use of a complex extraction system to bring engine exhaust through a filter paper,and then requires a person to remove the soot covered filter and perform a measurement in an optical reflectometer to determine the smoke number. ...

  9. A Hybrid Pyrolysis/Incineration System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery

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

    Both pyrolysis and incineration steps have been considered as the key solid waste processing step for a Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS). Pyrolysis is more amenable to handling mixed solid waste streams in a microgravity environment, but produces a more complex product stream. Incineration produces a simpler product stream, but the incineration of mixed solids is a complex unit op ...

  10. Carbon-Supported Amine Sorbent Monoliths for Carbon Dioxide Removal

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

    The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space will require the development of regenerable life support systems. On-board carbon dioxide (CO2) removal units play a key role in such systems ensuring high quality cabin air for crew members. Similar but more compact units are needed for extravehicular activities (space suit). The overall objective is to develop a C ...
