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. Rectifying Junctions for High Temperature, High Power Electronics

    SBC: 3c Semiconductors            Topic: N/A

    The single most important type of metal/SiC junction is the n-type, rectifying Schottky diode, because it is the voltage blocking junction in all majority carrier devices. A reliable junction of this type for n-type SiC is the key to its development for high temperature, power conditioning electronics. Phase I will demonstrate that osmium is the ideal metal for forming such junctions. Phase II wil ...

  2. Novel Membrane-Based System for Shipboard Treatment of GrayWater and Oily Waste Water

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Navy ships generate large valumes of graywater and oily wastewaters but most have minimal capacities for storing these wastes. The goal of this program is to develop a membrane-based shipboard graywater-treatment system (GTS) that allows recovery of more than 95% of the wastewater, reducing the volume of wastewater that must be stored by a factor of at least 20. Key to this system is development o ...

  4. Four-Quadrant Resonant Drive with Ports for Other Electrical Equipment

    SBC: Electronic Power            Topic: N/A

    A new quasi-resonant converter, called the unipolar series resonant converter ("USRC"), will be adapted as a four-quadrant drive for electric vehicles ("EVs"). With zero current and voltage switching, it will high modulation frequency (over 30 khz), thus driving a motor silently and efficiently throughout the speed range. The USRC produces any waveform required by any type of EV motor. It produces ...

  6. Angularly Multiplexed Spectral Imager

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

    Techical advances in two dimensional staring focal plan arrays (FPSs) have stimulated research to utilize FPSs in spectrometer instrumentation with the goal of increased spectral, spatial and temporal resolution. Conventional staring FPA spectrometers create a three dimensional image (two spatial and one spectral) by either using a sequence of narrow band spectral filters to slice the ...

  8. Active, Adaptive Resonant Tuned Mass Systems for Space Applications

    SBC: HOOD TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build upon prior experience to develop hardware customized to a selected spacecraft application. This hardware would employ an adaptive mechanical resonance as a vibration control element. Two related uses of such a device are described; the tuned vibration absorber and the tuned mass damper. Hood Technology Corporation has built and tested such devices for other applications. We ...

  10. Integrating Decision-Theoretic Design Rationale into Design Team Workflow

    SBC: Prevision Inc            Topic: N/A

    Software design, development, and maintenance constitute a complex and time-intensive process. Early design decisions can have a crucial impact on both quality and cost. Design rationale tools have been shown to be effective in supporting this process, but are infrequently used due to their interference with normal design team workflow. The rapid growth of new network and web-mediated workstyle ...
