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.

  2. GENERALIZED TOMOGRAPHIC IMAGING FOR RADAR AND LIDAR

    SBC: CHIRP CORP.            Topic: N/A

    IN RADAR, LIDAR, SONAR, AND ULTRASOUND SYSTEMS, RANGE RESOLUTION CAN BE IMPROVED BY INCREASING SIGNAL BANDWIDTH, BUT AZIMUTH (CROSS-RANGE) RESOLUTION IS LIMITED BY ARRAY OR APERTURE SIZE. THE SPACE-TIME TRANSMISSION PATTERN IS TYPICALLY MUCH NARROWER IN RANGE THAN IN AZIMUTH, YIELDING A LINE-LIKE FUNCTION THAT SAMPLES ENVIRONMENTAL REFLECTIVITY AS THE SYSTEM SCANS ITS SURROUNDINGS. OVEMENT OF TRAN ...

  3. MULTISENSOR ACQUISITION AND TRACKING USING LIKELIHOOD STATISTICS

    SBC: CHIRP CORP.            Topic: N/A

    OPTIMUM MULTISENSOR PROCESSING IS ACCOMPLISHED BY FORMING A LARGE, DISTRIBUTED SENSOR ARRAY COMPOSED OF SUBARRAYS THAT MAY BE SEPARATED BY LARGE DISTANCES. ACQUISITION IS ACCOMPLISHED BY IMPLEMENTING A HYPOTHESIS TEST FOR AN OBJECT IN EACH VOLUME ELEMENT OF THE SPACE TO BE SEARCHED. SUCH TESTS PRODUCE LIKELIHOOD STATISTICS THAT CAN BE USED FOR DETECTION AND POSITION/VELOCITY ESTIMATION. THE SIZE A ...

  5. PHOTOCATHODE ENHANCEMENT BY SURFACE MODIFICATION

    SBC: Deacon Research            Topic: N/A

    MODERN APPLICATIONS OF ACCELERATORS DEMAND RUGGED AND EFFICIENT PHOTOCATHODE SOURCES. WE ARE IMPROVING THE QUANTUM EFFICIENCY OF RUGGED PHOTOCATHODE MATERIALS USING SURFACE PLASMON EXCITATION. OUR SCHEME USES TWO LIGHT BEAMS, ONE TO EXCITE THE SURFACE PLASMONS ON A MODIFIED SURFACE OF THE MATERIAL AND ONE TO CREATE EXCITED ELECTRONS WHOSE PROBABILITY OF ESCAPING IS ENHANCED 10-30 TIMES BY THE PRES ...

  6. LIGHT ACTIVATED SWITCHES FOR MEGAHERTZ PULSED INDUCTION ACCELERATOR

    SBC: Energy Compression Research            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A CONSIDERABLE NEED FOR HIGH POWER JITTER-FREE SWITCHING IN THE SDIO INDUCTION ACCELERATOR PROGRAM. THE HIGH POWER SWITCHES CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ARE MAINLY BASED ON AN ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE IN GAS OR VACUUM, AND THEREFORE HAVE CERTAIN LIMITATIONS IN PULSE RISETIME, REPETITION RATE, TEMPORAL JITTER, RELIABILITY, LIFETIME RECOVERY, SWITCH SIZE, AND SWITCH WEIGHT. AN ALTERNATIVE HIGH POWER SWI ...

  7. HIGH ASSURANCE TRUSTED CRITICAL AND SAFE COMPUTER RESEARCH

    SBC: Gemini Computers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SAFE AND CRITICAL COMPUTING POLICY IS PROPOSED. IT CONSIDERED THE EXISTING GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES FOR SAFETY AND CRITICALITY AND FOR INFORMATION SECURITY. THE POLICY INCLUDED CONFIDENTIALITY (SECRECY), INTEGRITY AND ASSURED SERVICES (FAULT TOLERANCE). SAFE AND CRITICAL COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY IS BEING DEVELOPED BY THE INTEGRATION AND ENHANCEMENT OF THE FOLLOWING DISCIPLINES: 1. FAULT TOLERANCE AGAINS ...

  8. AGGREGATE SUSPENDED PARTICLE ELECTRIC CHARGE COLLECTOR

    SBC: HAYES INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ASPECC MAKES USE OF THE EXPONENTIALLY LARGE INCREASE IN SURFACE AREA WHICH ACCOMPANIES A FRACTIONATED SPECIFIC VOLUME. THOUGH THE MATH INDICATES VOLTAGES AS HIGH AS 10E9 AT 10E6 JOULES FOR SOME OF THE EXAMPLES DESCRIBED HEREIN, PHASE I AND II OF THIS PROJECT WILL ONLY PURSUE THE TESTING OF AN ASPECC AT 100 TO 300 VOLTS DUE TO TECHNICAL LIMITS OF PRESENTLY AVAILABLE MATERIALS. SINCE ELECTRIC CHARGE ...

  9. LOW WORK FUNCTION CATHODE MATERIALS FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE ARC-JET AND ION THRUSTERS

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE WORK FUNCTION IS THE ENERGY NEEDED TO REMOVE AN ELECTRON FROM A METAL SURFACE, SUCH AS IN THERMIONIC EMISSION. A LOWER WORK FUNCTION ALLOWS THE EMITTING SURFACE TO OPERATE AT A MUCH REDUCED TEMPERATURE FOR THE SAME CURRENT. LOW WORK FUNCTION SINGLE PHASE MATERIALS WITH REFRACTORY PROPERTIES ALLOW CATHODES TO OPERATE AT A LOWER TEMPERATURE AND SHOULD PERMIT LONGER LIFETIMES AT TEMPERATURES OF > ...

  10. ADVANCED MANDREL FOR FABRICATION OF FILAMENTARY COMPOSITE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Holli Research            Topic: N/A

    HOLLI RESEARCH'S CMIS MANDREL SYSTEM WILL MAKE BETTER MANDRELS FOR MEDIUM TO LARGE FILAMENTARY ADVANCED COMPOSITE STRUCTURES. WITH CURRENT TECHNOLOGY, THE MANDRELS USED TO FABRICATE COMPOSITE PARTS WEIGH 20 TIMES MORE THEN THE FINISHED PART. THIS, IN TURN, CAUSES FABRICATION, DIMENSIONAL, AND HANDLING PROBLEMS. FURTHERMORE, THESE EXISTING MANDREL SYSTEMS HAVE HIGH RECURRING EXPENSES, ADDING TO THE ...
