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. The Application of LIBS to the Detection of Lead in Soil and Paint

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the development of an instrument based on laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for the detection of lead in paint and soil that will have both military and commercial applications. The Phase I instrument will be similar to multi-species, portable LIBS instruments built by Dr. David Cremers at Los Alamos National Laboratory that utilize a spectrograph/charge coupled ...

  2. OpenROOM: Architecture for Real-Time Objects


    The ultimate purpose of the proposed R&D is to develop and demonstrate an innovative software development environment which supports the engineering, analysis, development, test, maintenance, and reuse of software for embedded, heterogeneous, real-time systems. The proposed approach is innovative in two respects: (1) it is based on the integration of two best-of-breed environments, ObjecTime/ROOM ...

  3. Acoustic Monitor for Buried Structure Detection

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to apply a non-intrusive embedded acoustic sensor concept, which has been used successfully in reentry vehicle aerodynamics applications for detecting exterior flow conditions to penetrator munitions for detecting various media and buried structures during penetration. This effort includes: review of existing data and literature to choose promising signal characteristics for media and ...

  4. Methodology to Predict Ballistic Penetration and Damage of-Composite Laminated Structures

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the Phase I effort is to demonstrate an experimental/numerical technique for formulating penetration equations and identifying pertinent material parameters to be used in those equations. Although penetration equations for isotropic metals are well developed, such equations are not readily applicable to anisotropic laminated composites, because composite failure is dominated by br ...

  5. Development and Demonstration of SSTSim, A Simulation Environment for Space System On-Orbit Simulation

    SBC: BCSi, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    With the appropriate analytical resources, the Space & Missile Technology Directorate will be able to "look into the future" of the development of space system technologies, development which spans definition, acquisition, and operations phases. For example, developers will be able to clearly quantify system requirements before system acquisition begins, use component test data to predict overall ...

  6. Thin Metal Film Battery Technology for Low Cost, High Power, Quick Recharge Electric Powered Vehicles

    SBC: Bolder Battery            Topic: N/A

    This research project will develop a unique, high-power, 30 amp hour (Ah) rechargeable battery for a variety of commercial and military applications. The performance characteristics of this technology have produced the highest specific peak power of any known battery technology, producing power levels in excess of 5000 Watts/kilogram (W/kg) and 16,000 Watts/liter (W/1). In addition, this unique Th ...

  7. Optical Scanner with High Speed and High Resolution

    SBC: Bosonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The optical beam scanners developed under this program will have linear resolution of up to 1000 angles with access times as low as 10 nanoseconds. Besides contributing to existing systems in optical memory access, optical signal processing, and optical switching, the unprecedented speed at such high resolutions will open up further applications previously unaccessible like real-time ...

  8. A Massively Parallel Liquid Crystal Fourier Transform Spectrometer

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a novel high throughput, massively parallel, ferroelectric liquid crystal-based Fourier transform spectrometer. The proposed system improves upon conventional polarization interference filters for applications requiring the recovery of spectral signatures. The basis for the proposed approach is that the high speed of FLC materials can be used to reduce hardware requiremen ...

  9. Cost-effective Optical Correlator for Security Applications

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pattern recognition systems using optical correlation are being developed. The optical correlator is a powerful tool since it simultaneously processes large data arrays. This capability reduces data handling and process control, makes the system less susceptable to obstruction and increases throughput. An optical correlator is also a phase sensitive detector. It can read an optical phase mask ...

  10. Autonomous Lidar Wind Field Sensor

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Previous measurements using two micron solid-state lidar systems and computer simulation of lidar performance demonstrate that an eyesafe, low-pulse-energy (1 - 10 mJ/pulse), small aperture (~10cm) lidar will be capable of highly accurate high spatial resolution wind velocity measurements to ranges of 2-10 km in the atmospheric boundary layer. High-spatial resolution 3-D coverage for several km a ...
