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. Context Dependent Prognostics and Health Assessment: A New PAradigm for Condition- Based Maitenance

    SBC: 3E TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In today's military environment ships, systems, and equipment are being asked to perform at levels not thought possible a decade ago. The intent is to improve process operations and equipment reliability, availability, and maintainability without costly upgrades. Of course, these gains must be achieved without impacting combat readiness. Downsizing is also taking its toll on operations. Loss o ...

  2. Flight Verified Dynamic Simulation of the LCAC

    SBC: BAND, LAVIS & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The LCAC Full-Mission Trainer (FMT) is providing a cost-effective tool for training LCAC operators in normal craft operation and casualty mode conditions. However, the FMT was never validated with full-scale LCAC test data. Rather, the feel of the FMT was uning coefficients in response to inputs obtained from experienced LCAC operators. The FMT training schedule combined wi ...

  3. Develop New Towed Array Technology

    SBC: CHESAPEAKE SCIENCES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Chesapeake Sciences Corporation, under contract to the Navy (NUWC) for development of a Towed Active Receive System (TARS) telemetry, proposes to study the application of the TARS telemetry to support the stated goals including commonalty with both surface ship and submarine platforms, affordability, and maximum application of previously developed commercial and Navy technology to towed array ...

  4. Technology for Affordability

    SBC: CHESAPEAKE SCIENCES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The towed array capabilities of the US Navy combine high reliability, high channel count, long aperture and low self noise to provide an underwater acoustic superiority not matched by any other Navy. This superiority has also brought with it unwanted high production costs for these arrays. The next generation of Naval towed arrays with increasingly larger aperture may be out of the reach of a cos ...

  5. Microwave Induced Decomposition of High Explosives from Loaded Munitions

    SBC: CONDUCTING MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The United States Navy has numerous projectiles/munitions loaded with explosives such as Explosive D, which present problems with demilitarization. Explosive D which has been pressed into and removed from projectiles or other ammunitions is much more sensitive than new or unused material. Therefore, reclaimed material should not be pressed or loaded into ammunition items until it has been recryst ...

  6. Improving the Effectiveness of Concurrent Enginerre(CE)

    SBC: Decision Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A METHOD FOR DEVELOPING A DYNAMIC SIMULATION MODEL OF THE MANAGEMENT DECISION-MAKING PROCESS THAT SUPPORTS THE CONCURRENT ENGINEERING PROCESS. THE MODEL CAN CAPTURE THE COMPLEX TRADEOFF PRESSURES THAT INEVITABLY ARISE AMONG SCHEDULE, BUDGET AND ENGINEERING QUALITY. THE FEEDBACK STRUCTURE THAT UNDERLIES THE DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM CONTAINS INTERLINKE ...

  7. Dynamic Simulation Model of Logistics and Life Cycle Support Systems

    SBC: Decision Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposal describes a method for developing a dynamic simulation model of the operational and aging processes of Naval Weapons Systems. The simulation model will forecast the logistics requirements for alternative technology choices, including life cycle costs. The model will capture, in as much detail as desired, each of the critical systems and components within a weapons system and track the ...

  8. Equations of State of Unreacted Explosives and Propellants for Initiation Modeling

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project involves the derivation of accurate E, P, V and T, P, V equations of state of unreacted explosives, which are needed, e.g., in order to calculate temperature-dependent reaction kinetics and thermal explosion times for use in modeling the formation, ignition, and subsequent reaction of hot spots that determine the initiation of energetic materials. The anticipated Phase I resu ...

  9. Energetics of Shock-Induced Reactions in Non-Explosive Mixtures

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many chemical reactions are so highly exothermic that they produce energies which, on a volume and weight basis, are comparable to or exceed those produced by TNT. The Al/oxidizer (the basis of thermite) and Ti/C reactions are two good examples. Although producing much heat, this class of thermitic reaction produces only solid reaction products and, therefore, can do little useful work. Mo ...

  10. Laser Acoustic Sensor for Gearbox Vibration Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: EPOCH ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    When rotating machinery deteriorates, vibration patterns change. The key is knowing where and how deeply to look. Gear mesh frequencies change in amplitude and the slimness or "All of their peaks change, indicating wear. Weakened teeth, due to root cracking or other gear damage,cause detectable changes. There have been problems -- until now -- using these phenomena for detailed assessment of machi ...
