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. Investigation of Neural Network Hardware for Electronic Warfare Applications


    Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) has developed a new artificial neural network processor (NNP) based upon a sparse Multiple Instruction Multiple Data (MIMD) structure which is ideally suited for Electronic Warfare (EW) applications. The proposed research will investigate the use of the AAC NNP for EW applications such as emitter identification which is used in ELINT, ESM, and RWR receivers. T ...

  2. Neural Network Compensation Strategy for Preventing Pilot-Induced Oscillations


    We propose to develop an automated Pilot Induced Oscillation (PIO) detection and compensation system. This will use artificial neural networks to increase speed and the envelope of operation. PIO is caused when a pilot overcompensates during a "high gain" task such as landing, takeoff, refueling, dropping stores, or tracking. It can also be caused by inefficiencies in the inner loop controllers ...

  3. Fracture Toughness Analysis of Metastable Beta Titanium Alloys


    The feasibility of fabricating hypersonic aircraft components from metastable Beta Titanium alloy (Beta 21S) will be investigated. Techniques for the fabrication of the leading edges, inlet, and nozzle areas of a hypersonic (Mach 4-5) testbed aircraft from Beta 21S will be selected and preliminary drawings, specifications, and test procedures for these components will be developed.

  5. Accurate Automation Corporation Fuzzy Logic/ Neural Network Processor


    In this project we will adapt our programmable neural network processor (NNP) into a Fuzzy/neural network processor (FNNP). Already having the commercially successful NNP, we begin this program with more than half the work completed. we will define and evaluate NNP architectural modifications to optimize both data flow and data processing for both fuzzy logic and neural network- Operations- we w ...

  7. Analytical Techniques for Computing Aeroheating, Thermal Protection and Temperature Effects on Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: A & E Associates            Topic: N/A

    Holloman AFB rocket sled requirements for computing the aeroheating and structural temperature effects thereof exceed the capabilities of available aeroheating methods in that accounting for shock impingement heating, real-gas, or non-air effects as needed for the sled application may be absent from these methods. In this SBIR Phase I effort an approach is proposed which will modify a flow code s ...
