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. Intelligent Flexible Fixturing System

    SBC: ACT Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Two approaches are proposed to attack the problems of fixturing process. First, a novel hardware holding system, Dexterous Vise, is proposed. Functionally, a single Dexterous Vise is capable of revealing four faces of the clamped workpiece to the cutting tool without re-fixturing, which actually increases one degree of freedom to the machine tool. A pair of Dexterous Vises, the "Dual-Vise", ena ...

  2. Automated Accurate Aircraft Weighing System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, an innovative aircraft weighing system based on a set of piezopolymar film pad sensors is described. The wieghing system, which would operate automatically as the aircraft taxi over it, would be unobtrusive, accurate, and reliable. These sensor pads could be integrated into the flight deck surface below the grated rubber surface finish. These thin (20-30 mils) piezopolymer sensing pads ...

  3. Smart, Compact Packages for Vibration Control

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, ACX proposes to develop compact, low cost, integrated smart packs for vibration reduction. Each package would include actuators and sensors, drive and signal conditioning electronics as well as simple controllers to yield a self standing solution to vibration problems. The electronics module would be low cost and compact. The pack would run off of standard available power supplies and w ...

  4. Apparatus for the Testing of Solid Cryogenic Mechanical Properties

    SBC: Advanced Materials            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort in Phase I is to identify properties of propellants that solidify at cryogenic temperatures, "cryosolids", that will be tested in Phase Ii and to deliver a detailed design of a cryogenic testing device. This device will be able to measure tensile, flexural, shear and compressive strength, elastic moduli, and hardness of these cryosolids. In addition, this device will be able ...

  5. Using Simulation/Animation Modeling Techniques to Optimize the ROCC/SOCC Computer communications System

    SBC: Advanced Visual Data, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Joint Surveillance System Computer-Communications System (C-CS) provides mission-critical support to Region Operations Control Centers (ROCCs), Sector Operations Control Centers (SOCCs), and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). New mission requirements (drug interdiction) and new sensor/system developments exceed the scope of the original design and mission of the C-CS. As a resu ...

  6. Evaporative Turbine Blade Cooling Using a Return Flow Cascade

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High intensity cooling of expansion turbine blades is proposed, using a self-stabilized evaporation/condensation process within each blade. The result is low blade structural temperature, with waste heat delivered to a low pressure air flow. This is a key technology requirement for development of a fully cooled gas turbine, with potential for operation at radically increased turbine inlet temper ...

  7. High Performance UAV System Design Based on High Power Microturbine Technology

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a high package volume with sufficient fuel capacity for hover duration of about one hour. Thrust from m ...

  8. Toughened E-Beam Curable Resins for Low Cost, Rapidly Pultruded, Filament Wound and Resin Transfer Molded Composites

    SBC: AEROPLAS CORP. INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative, cost-effective, rapid-pultrusion composite processing technique and newly formulated resins which substantially reduce the need for expensive tooling, high puller tensions (dies are expected to be an order of magnitude shorter than conventional pultrusion dies) and slow thermal processing and can cure the com ...

  9. High Performance E-Beam Curable Resins for Affordable Polymer Matrix RTM/Automated Tape Layup Composite Primary Airframe Structures

    SBC: AEROPLAS CORP. INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    Currently available rad curable resins such as acrylates are inhibited by oxygen in ambient air, lack thermal stability and have poor fracture toughness. Recent Rad curable BMIs and epoxies suffer from voids due to lack of processability. Aeroplas Corporation International (ACI) proposes to demonstrate and further develop their line of atomic oxygen resistant (AOR) E-Beam curable composite resin ...

  10. Adaptive Communications Links for Physical Security Systems

    SBC: Aes Corp            Topic: N/A

    Compromise of security networks is easiest through the communication links. Wired links between sensors and their controls require skilled preplanning and installation. They are expensive to maintain, especially in the connections to central security monitors and command centers. We propose to use a radio based communication system to replace the hardwire/fiberoptic links. This sysem is packet rad ...
